80 German
Planes Downed
In Dogfights
Ameriean Cunners Bag
Seventy- Allied Escorts
AwM (Cernaii Planes
By The Associated Press
LONDON, April 8.- Eighty Ger-
man planes including many from
Reichsmarshal Goering's elite yellow-
nose Focke-Wulf fighter squadrons
were destroyed in running dogfights
incidental to the American heavy
bomber attacks on the Renault works
near Paris last Sunday and the Erla
Aero engine factories at Antwerp on
Monday, an official tally showed to-
Seventy were bagged by American
gunners firing from the bombers and
the other ten were the victims of the
Allied fighter escorts. Allied losses
in the two big raids were eight bomb-
ers and eight fighters.
The official recapitulation issued
by the Eighth U.S. Army Air Force
showed 47 German planes shot down
during the Renault raid at a cost of
four American bombers and seven
fighters; 23 German fighters de-
stroyed over Antwerp at a cost of four
American bombers and one fighter.
There was no breakdown of the fig-
ures to show how many Germans
were bagged by the Allied fighter
escort in each of the two raids to
make the total of ten destroyed.
In each instance the American
bombers and escorts were challenged
while crossing the continental coast,
engaged all the way in to their tar-
gets and followed back to the channel
coming home.
Some returning pilots said the Ger-
mails again had tried to bomb them
out of the air but again had failed to
score with the experiment which ap-
parently has been undertaken in a
desperate effort to find a means of
successful combat against the Ameri-
can four-engine bombers.

'Amehia Earhart o Ann Arbor'
Flies Plane in Courier Service

"Flying grandma" is rather worried
these days.
Mrs. W. Carl Rufus, the "Amelia
Earhart of Ann Arbor" is very much
afraid the local airport may have to
close up-and that, to her, would be
a dire catastrophe. "We private
fliers," she said, "believe that our
courier service here in Ann Arbor
will make a definite contribution to
the progress of the war, and if we
close up the airport, we will be un-
able to do any kind of flying.
"What is courier service? Well it's
being on the job every day of the week
with planes ready to carry parts from
factories, to transport personnel fromI
one locality to another, or to take of-
ficers and soldiers on relays from
coast to coast. There's no end to the
things courier service can do," Mrs.
Rufus said. "We already have three
planes signed up for this service, and
ten alternates.
Served As Courier
"I've acted as a sort of private
courier servicer myself, picking up
a bubble sextant from Lake AngelusI
for a celestial navigation class held
at the Observatory; I've also taken
bunnies from the University Hospital,
to doctors around the country for
experimental purposes."
Mrs. Rufus is-a short woman with
a friendly, winning smile, a twinkle
in her eyes and with more energy
than a sixteen-year old. You can see
her on campus, "walking" along in
a half-run, half-trot, dressed in a'
khaki uniform with her overseas cap
-she's a lieutenant in the Civilian
Air Patrol-and all ready to keep up
with the best of the students.
Besides being the wife of Prof.

W. Carl Rufus, head of the astronomy
department, keeping house and enter-
taining, and writing a book called
"Flying Grandma, or Going Like
Sixty," she is also a member of CAP,!
and intelligence and publications of-
ficer, and a popular speaker.
You would never guess that "grand-I
ma" (for she has three grandchil-
dren) would have gone in for flying,
but she did-and in a big way.
Already she has more than 450
flying hours to her credit; in 1941 she
made a 7,000 mile transcontinental
trip to the state of Washington where
she took her 91 year-old father for
his first airplane ride; she has also
made a couple of hops to Miami to
participate in the air races.
Visited Wave Headquarters
Of course, she doesn't stop there.
She still makes cross-country trips.
Last week-end she flew to Blooming-
ton, Ind., to the WAVE headquarters,
"where the girls on the 'ship' gave me
a wonderful time. I had bad flying
weather all the way back to Ann Ar-,
bor. When I circled over the Fort
Wayne airport, I saw an ambulance
and the boys of the airport all ouit on
the field. I knew there must have
been trouble of some kind, but I never
dreamed that the ambulance was for
me. I guess they expected my to crack
up in the. forty-six mile-hour wind,
but I fooled them by making a per-
fect landing. I was told later
that a flying student from Detroit,
who had landed just before I got in,
had cracked up.
Mrs. Rufus owns a Piper Cub plane
with 65 horsepower, and received her
private license in 1940.

colored, I would judge him the same

Nancy Hattersley, W.A.A. presi-
dent, declared, "Because of the war
we are going to have to be broad-
minded, on campus. Equality should
start on campus. This is the begin-
ning of recognizing anindividual for
what he can do instead of his race
or crd."
Dick Emery, Interfraternity Coun-
cil president, said:
"I see no reason to make dis-
tinctions, as far as race or color is
concerned, on the faculty. If a
man is capable, that's what
Charlotte Heliker, speaking for the

Bob Ufer, - champion quarter-
miler, commented, "Anyone who is

After all, that's what we're fight-

These campus leaders were inter-
viewed in connection with the state-
ment in yesterday's Daily by Prof.
Harry C. Carver that William Clay-
tor, an outstanding Negro mathe-
matician well qualified to teach here,
had failed to receive a final recom-
mendation to an instructorship be-
cause of his race. The Administra-
tion, Prof. Carverbelieved, would not

have stood in the way of Claytor's
appointment if the recommendation
had gone through.
