Search Plane
Lost in State
EAST LANSING, Feb. 20-(1>)_-
Darkness forced a temporary halt
late today in the search for a
plane carrying two Flint men
missing since a flight from
Houghton Lake to Flint late
Thursday.
State police said no trace of the
plane was found following a day-
long search that criss-crossed the
state. Four planes from the Self-
ridge Field Air Rescue Squad, a
state police plane and a plane
from Hougton Lake took part . in
the hunt.
Missing with the small cub craft?
owned by the Flint Flying Serv-
ice were the pilot, Ivan Martin and
Dr. William Murray, a dentist.-
Both men are from Flint.
State Police said Martin took;
off from Houghton Lake at 7 pm.;
last night.
The State Police post at Essex-
ville, near Bay City, reported that

6,000 telephone calls, receive 5,000
pieces of mail, send out 11,700
letters and answer 2,900 personal
questions a year.
Help for Students
The Chamber helps students,
too.
"Business administration and
architecture students use us for
a home-base on local projects.
Their first step is usually to come
in and discuss their problems with
us," Christman said.
Foreign students bring in cus-
toms papers for verification of
purchase and price before sending
their packages to native lands.
Bewildered freshmen and ex-
cited football fans drop in for
maps of Ann Arbor when they get
lost or thoroughly confused in new
surroundings.
Facts and Figures
Where do these data-wizards
get all their facts and figures?
From the Chamber's own file
of directories Ā§tatistics, reports
and lists. Included are domestic
and foreign brokers' files: local,
state and national statistics on
production, distribution and em-
ployment; directories of 114 Mich-
igan and 82 out-state cities.
Ahlo listed are the names and
addresses of presidents and :sec-
retaries of all civic organizations
and manuals of all Federal, state
and local public officials, with po-
sitions held.
In serving the community busi-
ness interests, the Chamber plays
host to more than 100 meetings of
merchant groups in a year and
serves as a nerve-center for the
city and county war-bond drives.
It led local cooperation in the all-
cut war effort by indexing the
rules and regulations of war-time
bureaus for businessmen.
"Few people have a real idea of
our facilities and the ways in
wich we can be of service,",
Christman commented.

Prof. Shartel
Will Discuss
'Law in Action'
In this year's series of Thomas
M. Cooley Lectures, Prof. Burke
Shartel of the Law School will
present a working philosophy of
law in action.
He will deliver the five lectures
of this second annual series at 4:15
p.m. Monday through Friday in
Rm. 120 Hutchins Hall.
Prof. Shartel, who has taught
jurisprudence here since 1920, has
developed an original philosophy
of the legal system which he calls
"legal dynamics." He looks at law
in the light of what actually hap-
pens-haw our legal system is
really operated by the acts of of-
ficials.
The first Thomas M. Cooley cec-
turer was Prof. Henry Rottschafer
of the University of Minnesota,
who last year discussed "The Con-
stitution and Socio - Economic
Change."
The lectures are named in honor
of Thomas M. Cooley, one of the
members of the Law School's first
faculty, which was organized in
1859.
The Law School and the Wil-
liam W. Cook Endowment for Le-
gal Research sponsor the lectures.
