Week's Flights Highlight of Flying Club

250 Cadets To Parade
Saturday at Army Game

"You're always up in the
That may be an insult to most
University students, but to the 60
members of the Flying Club three
or four trips a week above the
clouds are the highlight of their
year's activities.
THE FLYING CLUB, as a non-
profitable corporation chartered
by the state, can give its members
flying time at a third of the reg-
ular cost, according to Dick Hus-
ton, president and business man-
Training for beginners as well
as precision and stunt flying for
more experienced flyers are a
part of the club's program.
In intercollegiate contests with
Texas, Purdue, Michigan State,
Kalamazoo and Big Beaver Wom-
en's College, the Flying Club has
never been defeated.
THE CLUB'S instructors 'are
qualified to train members for any
rating. And, though only 21 women
have ever been members of the
club, they have upset popular mis-
conceptions about the "weaker
sex" by earning their wings as
quickly as any of their male com-
panions, Huston reports.
Every year the club presents a
show at which any student who
comes to the Ann Arbor airport
is offered a free ride. The club
owns two planes-a Cessna 140 -
for cross-country trips and a
Cub 33 trainer.
. One privilege offered to club
members is that they can take the
Cessna 140 for weekend trips and
pay only for their actual flying

Social Work
Sub ject of 'U,
Michigan and Wayne University
officials are discussing possibilities;
of cooperative arrangements in
the conduct of their programs in
the field of social work.
The University is engaged in a
review of the program carried on
by the Institute of Social Work in
"SUCH A reexamination of a
program of study from 'time to
time is a normal procedure in thet
University," accordingtoJames
P. Adams, University Provost.
The present review of thepro-
gram of social work is being car-
ried out because of the future
appointment of a new director
of the institute to replace Prof.
Robert W. Kelso, who is retiring.
A recent series of articles in the
Detroit Free Press dealing with
the welfare investigations in De-
troit stated that partial blame for
the scandal rested with social
work departments in schools that
did not prepare social workers
sufficiently to carry on their work.
"REVIEWS SUCH as the one
being carried on in the Institute
of Social Work and other teaching
units of the University provide
opportunity for such changes in
the curricular offerings or in the
requirements for degrees as may
appear to be desirable as a matter
of educational policy,"' Provost
Adams stated.
"No final conclusions have been
reached, and whatever is done
must first be approved by the re-
spective governing boards," Pro-
vost Adams concluded.

Snide remarks of defendants or
their lawyers have, however, on
several occasions, caused Medina
to declare the speaker in contempt
of court.
* * *
MORE OFTEN, though, he lets
a remark go unanswered, except
for a comment that he has had
"enough of this sort of thing dur-
ing the trial" and a promise that
the offender will be dealt with
at the conclusion of the case.
Sometimes Medina reminds
one of a school-teacher stuck
with an impossibly unruly class
who can't wait for the end of
the semester.
The more human side of his
personality was clearly revealed
late one afternoon.
* * *
A MAN FROM Philadelphia, a

communist party official in that
city, had just taken the stand and
seemed quite nervous.
"What's the matter?" the Judge
asked, "Are you ill?"
The man didn't answer, but a
lawyer,'after a brief consulta-
tion at the defense counsel table,
'arose and said,
"Your Honor, I have just been
informed that this man's wife had
a baby this morning."
* * *
"WELL," MEDINA said to the
witness, "You get right off the
standand gohome to your wife."
He. was then informed that
the defense had called no other
witnesses for that afternoon.
"In that case, we will adjourn
now," he said. Then, turning again
to the witness, the judge repeated,
"Get right off the stand, and take
the next train back to Philadel-
phia and your wife."


Prof. Legouis Denies Plays
Of Pierre Cornielle bawdy

Pierre Corneille, 17th century
French dramatist, did not pave
the way for bawdiness on the
English stage of his time, accord-
ing to Prof. Pierre Legouis, Eng-
lish language and literature ex-
pert from Lyon University.
. Lecturing on "Corneille and
Dryden as Playwrights," the pro-
fessor told his audience at Rack-
ham Amphitheatre yesterday that
the French dramatist (considered
frivolous in his own day) really
produced characters which are es-
sentially "str ight-laced."
FAR FROM corrupting Dryden
and other contemporary drama-

tists across the channel, Corneille
actually believed in a morality of
absolute principles similar to Des-
carte's, he said.
Emphasizing the elevated
ideals of Corneille's main char-
acters, especially in the classic
tragedies, "Cinna" and "Poly-
eucte," Prof. Legouis showed
that principles such as honor,
patriotism and faith always win
out over other forces, including
When similar motives conflict in
Dryden's works, less admirable
forces are apt to triumph, and
love takes precedence over even
honor and esteem, Prof. Legouis

U' Pep Club
Students who want "to have a
say" in arrangements for pep ral-
lies, flash card stunts and special
trains for away football games
may join the Wolverine Club, ac-
cording to John Zubrieske, '50, a
club member.
A meeting for all students in-
terested in.becoming members will
be held at 8:00 p.m. today at the
Union, he said.
The Wolverine Club was estab-
lished because students felt the
lack of school spirit and wanted to
do something about it.
Its activities now include ar-
rangements for team send-offs
and receptions, basketball half-
time shows, helping with ticket
distribution and the home-coming
