University Flying Club Events
Have Air CorpsAtmnlsphere

Bombing practice; cross-coun-
try flights to Florida, Salt Lake
City, the East Coast; licensed
flight instructors-it sounds like
the US Air Force bt all of this; is
to be found in the University Fly-
ing Club.
The bombs are bags of flour, the
cross-country flights are made by
members of the club and the hi-
censed instructors, two of them,
are club members also.
Practice Bombing
When one of the three planes
owned by the club swoops low over
a target and deposits three pounds
of flour on the bull's-eye, it is
likely to be piloted by one of the
organization's stalwarts practic-
ing for the next air meet. When an

Student veterans who change
their place of residence must noti-
fy the VA of their change of ad-
dress immediately in order to in-
sure uninterrupted receipt of
benefit payments. Government
checks cannot be forwarded
through-the mails and unless the
change is reported the checks will
be returned.
The number of veterans study-
ing abroad under the GI Bill has
increased 350 per cent during the
past year, according to Veterans
Administration officials. At the
beginning of 1948 6,055 former
service personnel were enrolled in
422 schools and colleges in 44
countries compared to a total of
1,307 at the same time last year.
Nearly half of the present group
is enrolled in educational insti-
tutions in the Philippines Islands,
comprised largely of Filipinos who
served in the U.S. armed forces
during the war.
Those who wish to study abroad
must arrange for their own pass-
ports, visas, and transportation.
All arrangements must be made
through the State Department
which administers the foreign
training benefits of the GI Bill.

Veterans may authorize the Vet-
erans Administration to deduct
National Service Life or U.S. Gov-
ernment Insurance premiums from
their disability compensation or
officer retirement benefits.
Officials point out that the de-
duction affords veterans receiving
such benefits a safe and simple
method of paying premiums.

Bomb dropping and long flights

group's activity however. Nearly
half of the membership. is com-
posed of aerial neophytes who are
working for their private pilot's

tors come in. They put the be-
ginners through a routine which
might well be designatedm"Avia-

No Prerequisites
There are no prerequisites for
this class, but it is by no means a
"pipe." It proceeds from famil-
iarization with airplanes, and aer-
onautical terms to instruction in
all the advanced flying techniques
in which a flyer must be profi-
cient in order to gain a license.
When, after hours of flying and
study, the student has received his
license, he may begin to think of
earning a berth on the club's in-
tercollegiate flying team.
Air Team
The team is chosen in intraclub
elimination tournaments and is
made up of the five top pilots. The
events flown at these meets, and at
the national and interclub jousts,
include such precision affairs as
spot landings and bomb drop-
In two meets with Michigan.
State College the club team has
been twice victorious. It has also
made a fine showing in National
Intercollegiate Flying Club tour-
naments against teams from about
ten other schools.
National Meet
According to Richard Wilkins,
'48E, the club president, the team
has high hopes for thenext na-
tional meet which is to be held
May 21 in Kalamazoo.
Wilkins says also that the or-
ganization's ranks have been
thinned out by recent graduations
and that about ten new members
are needed to fill them out to the
"normal complement" of 66.
Anderson House Elects
Spring Term Officers
Anderson House Officers, elect-
ed at a recent house meeting, are
as follows:
Art Robinson, president; Jim
Butler, vice-president; Joe Gut-

For Ex-Willow Actors,
The Student Players will pre-
sent "They Knew What They
Wanted," the Pulitzer Prize win-
ning play by Sidney Howard, at
8 p.m. on March 5 and 6 in Pat-
tengill Auditorium.
The cast is composed entirely
of University students. A. Michael
Cetta plays the leading role, that
of Tony, a wealthy Italian grape
grower in the Napa valley of
Other Leads
Other lead roles are played by
Jane Bevan as Amy, a pretty
waitress from San Francisco, and
Ben Dziengielewski, a handsome
transient worker employed by
The cast includes Jack Hess,
the Padre; Bob Johnson, the Doc-
tor; David Vance, Angelo; and
Hank Vilas, the R.F.D. The play
is directed by Donald M. Decker.
Marion Emerson is the produc-
tion manager.
The scene is Tony's farmhouse
in California. That no social prob-
lem is too complex to be solved
is the theme of the play.
The plot is based on the ful-
fillment of the desires of the
three main characters in spite of
the difficulties arising from their
human frailties.
Sixth Presentation
The Student Players, formerly
the Little Theatre of Willow Vil-
lage, staged the play, their fifth
presentation, in West Lodge audi-
torium at Willow Village last Jan-
Tickets for the performance
may be obtained at Wahr's Book-

In "Our Town Tomorrow" in-
stitutes sponsored by the EXten-
sion Service at Iron Mountain, Es-
canaba and Sault Ste. Marie,
problems ranging from the tourist
business to butter [at testing were
thrashed out.
Pressing Problems
Townspeople in each community
picked what they considered their
most pressing problems. In Sault
Ste. Marie, for example, recrea-
tion and schools were discussed.
County government, city manager
form of government, taxation, and
planning were also on the agenda.
The discussion leaders were Dr.
Charles A. Fisher, Extension Serv-
ice director; Prof. Harold Dorr
and Prof. Arthur Bromage of the
political science department; Prof.
John Hyde of the architecture
school; Willett Ramsdell of the
forestry school; W. G. Robinson of
the Extension ' Service; Robert
MacIntosh and Prof. Guy Hill of
Michigan State; and George Bean,
Pontiac city manager.
Experts Stumped
The experts were stumped just
once, in Iron Mountain, when a
group of dairy farmers wanted in-
formation on testing butter fat.
The dairy dilemma was solved
by calling in the State Department
of Agriculture, which settled the
whole stirred-up milk situation.

As each election year rolls
around, and the eligible students
on campus do not vote, the cry
goes up that someone ought. to do
something about it.
This year someone. Young Pr'o-
gressive Citizens of Michigan, is
doing something about, it.
YPCM has formed a committee
which, is investigating the rules
for absentee voting in each of the
forty-eight states. Once this ela-
borate and detailed information
is sorted and translated, the group
intends to set up a booth on cam-
This booth will be manned by
pe ople whlo understand the var,-
ous absentee regulations and will
answer student questions. All eli--
gible voters will also be ablc to
secure official forms necessary for
voting in their state.
Many votes are not valid at elec-
tion time because people n2 lect
to register, Alfred Millstein, prsi-
dent of YPCM said. Therefore
every student who is eligible to
vote in November's election is
urged to register in his local dis-
trict during school vacations.
The most difficult job the com-
mittee has met during their re-
search is the divergence of the
voting laws from one state to
another, but they plan to have

easy lessons, but if you have a
fundamental knowledge of the
language it will help you to a
greater knowledge of the Russian
The club was founded to meet
the needs of growing numbers of
students of Russian on campus.
The study of Russian has received
impetus recently from the increas-
ing demand in government, indus-
try, and diplomatic service for
people well versed in the language.
In addition many scientific devel-
opments have been written up by
Russian scientists.
Russian Songs
Meetings, which are held at
eight p.m. on the first and third
Monday of every month at the
international Center, are conduct-
ed in Russian and English.
Russian songs are sung and
such games as the Russian version
of Twenty Questions are played at
the meetings. Mrs. Pargment, fac-
41ty adviser to the club, empha-
sized that meetings are planned
so that even beginning students
can understand and participate in
the activities.
Lectures, Skits
Lectures, usually by faculty
members, are presented dealing
with Russian art, music, geogra-
phy, history, and education. A
film, "Nationalities of the Soviet
Union" is planned for March.
Among the club's not-so-schol-
arly activities are Russian skit
nights at which students give orig-
inal humorous skits.
The club is now planning a quiz
program to be conducted entirely
in Russian. Smart contestants will
receive a book of Russian poetry
for the right answers. Even Rus-
sian commercials will be used.
Wonder how "Rinso White!" will
sound in Russian?

sored by the University chapter of

view and editor-in-chief of the
Public Administration Review.
He has been a member of the
Chicago Civil Service Commission
and of the United States Civil
Service Commission. Prof. White
