Ancient Greeke City, Constructed of

The life of the archa cologist is
not all a matter of cut and dried
digging about the ruins and study-
ing the discoveries made. There is
an element of romance that en-
ters into work as well as that of
scholasticism was the opinion of
Prof. Arthur E. Boak, professor ofI
ancient history. This statement,'
a quotation from an eminent arch-
aeologist was the concluding re-
mark of his lecture, "Archaeological

Leon Brillouin, of the University of
Paris, in a recent interview. "Over
there the students are not so close-
ly associated with the institution
after they leave the campus. What-
ever they do and wherever they
live is largely left up to them. Here,
I understand, there is more super-
vision off the campus."
The visiting physicist also men-
tioned that the campus there pres-
ented a very different appearance
from the Michigan commons. "We
do not have the large, newI
buildings that are found here, and

Capt. Ross G. Hoyt Expects to Make
8460-mile Trip in 75 Hours;
Six Hours in Alaska
(By Associated Press)
-Starting a day ahead of sched-
ule, Captain Ross G. Hoyt took off
for Alaska today expecting to be
back Sunday, the fastest flight of
such length ever made.
He had not planrned to ;leave,
until tomorrow, but weather re-
ports were favorable so he hopped
off at 2:38 Eastern daylight saving
time this afternoon. His course to
Nome, Alaska, is 4,230 miles long
and he expects to make the 8,460
mile round trip in 75 hours and 40
minutes elapsed time, including
eight one-hour stops for refueling
and a six-hour layover at Nome.
Actual time in the air is scheduled
at 61 hours and 40 minutes, an
average of 140 miles per hour.
Captain Hoyt, who had charge of
refueling the army endurance plane
Question Mark, planned this flight
to test the efficiency of increasing
the range of army pursuit flying
by stepping upon the present horse
power and adding extra gas tanks.
His plane, a black and yellow sijgle
seater with U. S. Army painted on
the under side, is capable of 180
miles an hour, but he figured ,o a
certain amount of head winds in
arranging his schedule.
At midnight tonight he planned
to swoop down over Fargo, N. D.,
to let that city know of his passing,
and some three hours later to make
a similar dive above the housetops
of Regina, Alaska.
For nourishment he carried three
bottles-one of water, one of or-
ange juice, and one of eggs and

The statement of Regent Sawyer

Regent Murfin stated that his

"that the board would meet Aug.
2 and I certainly hope they will
pick a president." .In an Associat-

saying: "I have not canvassed
