HAVANA, July 23.-(IP)-Capt.
Frank Hawks landed here at 11:08
this morning, completing a flight
by way of Wilmington and Miami
that regained for him the speed
record from New York, knocking;
27 minutes off the time of James
Goodwin Hall, who beat Hawks
previous record last Saturday.
Hawks took off at 3 a.m. from
Floyd Bennett Field, Brooklyn.
Hall, broker and former army avia-
tor, made the flight Saturday in
eight hours and 35 minutes cutting
eight minutes off Hawks' previous
flying time.
Hawks landed at Wilmington at
5:44 a.m. Mechanics poured more
than 100 gallons of gasoline into
his plane's tanks and he took off
again at 6:01 a.m. for Miami, where
he landed his monoplane at Pan-
American Airport at 9:37 a.m.
After his plane had been re-
fueled again and he had obtained
clearance papers, he took off for
Havana at 9:52. He said he had
fought headwinds most of the way
from Wilmington to Miami, aver-
aging about 180 miles an hour.

Looking back over four years of
University life many recently grad-
uated seniors experience keen re-
grets over a number of things, as is
shown by statements made to Daily
reporters.
That fraternities play too impor-
tant a role in the lives of Univer-
sity of Michigan students is the es-
sence of a grievance expressed by
one senior. The majority of the
freshman class is snatched up by
the 80-odd fraternities on the cam-
pus, he said, and from that day on
students lose their sense of pre-
vious individualism.
The moment that a man enters
into such an atmosphere, he ex-
plained, he is forced to submit to
a type of poise and conduct which
belongs, not to himself, but to the
whole group with whom he associ-
ates himself. This senior regretted
that he could not have waited until
the University shall have provided
dormitories for all students.
Much the same feeling was ex-
1 pressed by a woman student, who
said that her four years had made
her lose much of her individuality,
in that she had had to conform
somewhat to the standards of those

Less poignant was the regret of
another woman student who said,
"I don't regret anything especially.
I suppose I should regret not study-
ing more, but I'm afraid I don't."
Two seniors declared that if they
could experience their four years
at the University again they would
make a better allotment of their
time and "keep their work up to
date." Another senior stated that
"financial difficulties would not per-
mit me the time I should have liked
for extra-curricular activities;
neither would they allow the so-
cial life which would have been my
pleasure. However, given my Uni-
versity life to live over again under
the same circumstances, I hardly
believe there would be any great
change, and I can truthfully say
I can gaze back upon my college
days with no poignant regret."

FR T JP TO fMF
LIBERTY, N. Y., July 23.-(A)-
The, plane Liberty, which carried
Otto Hillig and Holger Hoirtis
across the Atlantic to Germany
last month, is to fly the ocean
again, with its new woman owner,.
Mrs. Umberto Loffredo, as the pilot.
She bought the big Bellanca ship
Wednesday from Hillig for a flight
to Rome. She paid Liberty's flying
photographer, just returned home
from Europe, $23,000 for the plane,
a thousand more than he paid to
have it especially built for his trip.
Mrs. Loffredo told him she plan-
ned to take off from Buffalo in
mid-August, with Newfoundland as
the last stop before heading out
over the ocean airway for Italy's
capital. Rento Rinaldi, who has
crossed the south Atlantic by air,
will be her navigator.

Valuable Skins of Guatimalian Animals

In the mammal division of the,
Zoological Museum the skins of the
animals collected on the expedition
to Guatemala at the beginning of}
the year are being reworked and
stuffed for scientific study.
This expedition was begun last
January in cooperation with the
Carnegie Institution at Washing-
ton, D. C. and was completed in
June. The animals were collected
about Uaxactum, Guatemala, where
the main camp was located.
Seven hundred and thirty mam-
mals were .brought back-a very
representative collection from that
region. The smaller animals such
as rats and bats were stuffed in the
field but the large ones were treated
with salt and packed in moth balls
for shipment. To be mounted they
must be soaked in cold water over
night, the fur allowed to dry and
stuffed with excelsior.
The department is very pleased
with a long-tailed cat which is sel-
dom seen. This cat lives in Central
America and feeds on birds and
smaller mammals, being similar to
the ocelot. The howling monkey
with its roar which can be heard
- .1

for miles and the spider monkey
are the other representatives of
this territory. Many of these ani-
mals resemble those found in the
United States. The tayra is like a
large weasel and the kinkapou has
long hair and a tail like a raccoon.
The entire collection is said to
fbe very valuable.
