U Pilots Combine Classes, Fun




"Flying is the only way to trav-
el," Arthur Wynne, one of more
than 100 University students who
has his flying license, commented.
Friday afternoon classes in Ann
Arbor and dinner hundreds of
miles away is the rule, rather than
exception, for the students who
plan weekend jaunts to other mid-
western campuses
Students who regularly pilot
planes are members of the local
airport's pilot's club. The club is
maintained as a service to the fly-
ers and enables them to rent planes
at a reduced rate
Flying Instructions
Most of the students receive fly-
ing instructions at the airport train-
ing school. Thirty of them have
earned their licenses in the past
six months and an additional 120
students are working for theirs.

Most of the flyers are enrolled
in the Air Force ROTC program on
campus and many intend to enroll
in Air Force flight school.
In two months last spring, Wynne
managed to accumulate the 40 fly-
ing hours required to qualify for
his license. He has spent about 100
hours in the air to date and claims
he "feels perfectly at home in the
Always interested in airplanes,
Wynne plans to continue his fly-
ing hobby and use it later for the
SRA To Sponsor
Annual Carol Sing
On Library Steps
SRA, the Student Religious As-
sociation, will sponsor its annual
all-campus Christmas carol sing
at 8:15 p.m. Sunday on the steps
of the general library.
The singing, which will be led
by Grey Austin of Lane Hall, will
consist of traditional Christmas
After the singing, the carolers
will return to Lane Hall where they
will be served hot wassal and
Christmas cookies.
An invitation has been extended
by SRA to all housing units and
religious organizations to attend
the carol sing in groups.
The SRA council, composed of
representatives of the various cam-
pus religious groups, will hold its
Christmas party Tuesday evening
at the home of DeWitt C. Baldwin.

Recreational Value
Highlight of his trips this fall
came when he piloted three of his
friends to a University of Wiscon-
sin football game. They made the
trip in two and one-half hours and
had plenty of time to partake in
homecoming festivities.
Allan Weinstein learned to fly a
plane at Jamestown, N.Y., his
home town, and acquired his li-
cense when he was 16. An engineer-
ing major, he considers his exper-
ience with planes invaluable
The pilots have a fine safety rec-
ord and have had no serious mis-
haps. Wynne's forced landing in a
cornfield during a rainstorm re-
quired skill but there was no real
danger, he commented.
"Flying by the Book" insures
safety, he maintains and he puts
this credo into practice.
