ENGINEERING CENTENNIAL:
College To Feature DaVinci's Inventions
* * * * *

t '

By FRAN SHELDON

Although the Mona Lisa will
remain in the Louvre for the dura-
tion of the engineering college's
centennial celebration, other works
of Leonardo DaVinci will be rep-
resented on campus during the
anniversary festivities.
During the college's open house
Friday and Saturday replicas and
copies of his scientific inventions
will be showh by the Naval Archi-
tecture department in Rm, 246
West Engineering Bldg.
* * *
LARGEST of the display will
be a copy of the famed "flying
machine." Made of various and
assorted ropes, pullies and a wind-
lass, the machine will feature two
wings of a design similar to bird
wings. In theory the machine could
support the weight of a man in
flight, but it has never been put
to a test.
A larger detailed copy of the
wing of the machine will also
be shown.
Another of the six inventions to
be shown during the Centennial is
DaVinci's pyrimidal "tent of lin-
en" parachute. Tested by DaVinci

Council Plans
Trash Survey
Ann Arbor's city council has de-
cided to spend $4,000 for a com-
prehensive survey of the opera-
tion, problems and expense of a
rubbish collection program.
Strong urging for a rubbish ser-
vice came from Dr. Otto K. Engel-
ke, city health officer who said
collection of rubbish is now one
of the most serious public health
menaces facing Ann Arbor citi-
zens.
Alderman Ronald Hinterman
claimed the public works commit-
tee had received an estimate of
about $220,000 yearly cost for a
rubbish pickup and dumping ser-
vice.
Alderman Arthur W. Gallup said
the city "will find out at the end
of the survey it can't afford to in-
stitute a rubbish service.

ALI, Up from the, bench
OR.. ..You can't buck
that line unless you
break into the line-up

A third-string quarterback named
Witherspoon had a Laudable Ambition.
He wanted to be first-string quarter.
back. Particularly to start the opening
game under the Admiring Eyes of his
Number One Girl. Unfortunately the
coach was a Hard Man to Convince.
So our hero, undismayed, uncorked a
Master Plan.
Two weeks before the opening game,
the coach got a Telegram. Message-
"Ten reasons why Witherspoon should
be first-string quarterback. First,
Witherspoon is resourceful. Witness
this approach." Each day the coach
received a similar Telegraphic Tribute
to the Sterling Qualities and Gridiron
Prowess of Witherspoon, ending on the
tenth day with "Witherspoon knows

the T-formation to a T. Incidentally,
his father is considering endowing a
new gymnasium."
Who started Saturday? Our boy, nat.
urally. Did very well, too. Played all
season. "Just one of my Finds," the
coach murmurs modestly, when found
in the New Athletics Building.
Nothing puts a point across as con-
vincingly as a Telegram . .. whether
you're trying to get a "Yes" out of a
Coach, a Chick or that Checkbook at
home. (Fact-when it comes to prying
Pesos out of a Recalcitrant Parent, a
Telegram is just about the world's Best
Crow-bar). Whatever your message,
it'll Mean More when it goes on the
Yellow Blank.-'
