PRESS

By PHOEBE FELDMAN
I was taken for a ride yester-
day-by the Flying Club.
Member Bob Goslow took me up
in the blue to get a new look at
Ann Arbor. The plane we were in
was the club's newly purchased
Cessna.
PURCHASED last August foi
the licensed pilots in the club, it
is intended primarily for cross-
country trips. Cross-country, Dick
informed me, meant things like
flying down to see the Purdue
game; commuting to school from
Pontiac, and running down tc
Florida for a vacation. The club
members nonchalantly do all this.
and more.
But of course, not everybody
who has the "flying bug" can go
whipping off about the country.
For the less experienced, the
blub has two Aronca Champions
to train and practice in. If you
don't know how to fly at all, or
have just begun to learn, the
club's instructor, Roger Marko
will help you out.
I was just about to ask where I
could sign up. But it seems that
the club is actually a corporation.
This is so the members can be pro-
tected from damage spits. How-,
ever, it pretty well limits the
member-stockholders to about 66,
and in order to join, you must de-
posit $40. There are also dues of
six dollars per month.

In addition to buzzing around
the country, the members -of the
club also compete in annual
races with Michigan State's
club. They have won two out of
the last three. Last June, they
played host to flying enthusi-
asts from all over the world at

the Intercollegiate Flying Clubs
meet at Willow Run.
Though the membership is nec-
essarily limited, club members
emphasized that room could prob-
ably be made for anyone who
really wants to fly. They know
what the flying bug is.

PUC TURE NEWS

By LEON JAROFF
The Daily has discovered 'a com-
petitor in the East Quadrangle.
Published by a small, but enthu-
siastic staff, the Strauss House
Occasionally has emerged as a
definite threat to the Washtenaw
County press barons.
WHY IS it called the Occasion-
ally?
"Well," explained James Dav-
ies '50 and his brother John,
'50E, originators of the title,
"the Atlantic Monthly comes
out every month, Business Week
is published weekly, The Daily
reaches us daily, and the Occa-
sionally is published - you
guessed it-occasionally."
The Davies brothers, Garth
Owen '49E, and Bob Papworth
'50 were originally inspired by
Jimmy Stewart's portrayal of a
newspaperman in "Call Northside
777." But their ideas didn't crys-
tallize until someone complained
about the scarcity of Dailys on
Monday.
"LET'S KEEP Strauss House
well-informed even on Mondays,"
suggested James Davies-and an
enterprise was born.
But, rather than adhere to
a strict Sunday night deadline,
the amateur editors decided to
publish on a "casual, informal
basis" and reserved the right to
deliver the Occassionally to the
Strauss mail boxes at the most
unexpected times.
Since no mimeograph machine

is available in the East Quadran-
gle, the Occasionally rolls off the
most unusual "press" in the
world.
COMPOSED OF a wood table
leaf, an old bedsheet, a. mimeo-
graph stencil and a cider jug
(empty), the press spews forth
copies of the Occasionally at the
rate of more than four a minute.
When the task of rolling the
cider jug over the press becomes
too tedious, Papworth becomes
an integral part of the machin-
ery by doing a two-step on a
drawing board placed over the
stencil, ipjk, and paper.
"The finished paper is truly a
sight to behold," Papworth said
proudly. Other residents of Strauss
wryly agree with him.
SO FAR, the Occasionally has
not delved into partisan politics.
Said co-editor John Davies mod-
estly, "We are waiting for a deci-
sive moment to throw our weight
behind and swing the election for
the most worthy candidate."
Service Fraternity
Alpha Phi Omega, National
Service Fraternity, will hold an
open meeting 7 p.m., Thursday
at the Union.
All members, prospective
pledges, and men interested in
joining must attend the meeting
to be active in the fraternity this
semester.

L U T 1 I N B I G C I T Y - Dr. Donn Campbell of the American Society for the Prevention
of Cruelty to Animals offers food to doe at New York City shelter. The deer was rescued aftex
being hit by a car at Henry Hudson Parkway near Dyckman St.!

Orchestre National of France
To Appear in Hill Auditorium

Choral Union ticket-holders can
thank the French government for
their next source of music en-
joyment.
Under the direct sponsorship of
their own government, the Or-
chestre National of France, the
first foreign group to tour this
country since 1920, will appear at
8:30 p.m. Monday in Hill Audi-
torium.
APPEARANCES OF the group
throughout the nation will be pa-
tronized by brighter and lesser
lights of Franco-American diplo-
matic services.
Henri Bonnet, French ambas-
sador to the United States,
started the series last week, at
the orchestra's sole New York
-ppearance. Prominent figures
throughout the country are
making the symphony's list of
sponsors read like Who's Who.
On the continent, the Orchestre
National occupies first place
among the many French orches-
Wanna Buy a
Fire Engine?
Fire engines seem to be a drag
on the market.
Since the story of Phi Kappa
Tau's bid on the city's fire engine
appeared in The Daily Tuesday,
the fraternity reports being
smothered with callers wanting to
sell fire engines.
Top offer came from a Detroit
automobile dealer (The Daily gets
that far away) who said he has six
1920 American-France flre en-
gines, purchased from the Detroit
fire department, sitting on his lot
which he will sell cheap.
