Michigan Men
Aid In Design
Of Hughes Ship
Engineering Graduates At
Lockheed Corp. Helped
To BuildFlight Plane
A complete list of the Michigan
aeronautical engineers working at the
Lockheed Aircraft Corp., Burbanks,
Calif., where Howard Hughes' plane
was made, was issued yesterday af-
ternoon by Prof. Milton Thompson
of the aeronautical engineering de-
partment in the College of Engineer-.
Clarence L. Johnson, '32E, M.S. '33;
Edward D. Palmer, .32E, M.S. '33; R.
L. Thoren, '35E, M.S. '37; Paul San-
derson, '35E; and Richard R. Ric-
holt, '30 P, probably more directly
influenced the building of the Lock-
heed 14 type plane, because of their
responsible positions at the plant, but
several others working there no doubt
were indirectly concerned with the
building of that type of plane.
These engineers, who are now
working at the plant include; Paul H.
Bremer, '35E, who received his M.S.
in 1936; Willis M. Crumrine, '37; Jack
C. puffendack, who received a B.S. in
both mechanical and aeronautical
engineering in 1937; Eugene Frost,
'36E; James Gammack, '34E; Willis
M. Hawkins, Jr., '35E, president of the
student branch of the Institute of
Aeronautical Science in 1934-35.
John A. Margwarth, '37E; Donald
E. Nelson, who received his M.S. here
in 1938; Earl E. Nofzinger, 131E, John
S. Pinaire, '30E; Wilfred A. Pulver,
'35E, who received his M.S. here in
1936; Jack L. Rohn, '33E; Arnold E.
Rubin, '37E; and Carl H. Schramm,
Greyhound, Trotter,
Fails To Set Mark
GOSHEN, N. Y., July 14-(iP)-
Greyhound, world's fastest trotter,
failed today in his first attempt at re-
cord-breaking this season, being
clocked in 2:01 in an exhibition mile
over historic track's' half-mile oval.
The grey champion, owned by E. J.1
Baker of St. Charles, Ill.;, and drivenj
by Sep Palin of Indianapolis, tried to;
better his own mark of 1:59 3-5 for
a half-mile track, established here,
last year. While he failed, his mile
was faster than any other trotter has
ever turned the distance over the
twice-around oval. Greyhound trot-
ted the first quarter in 30 1-2 seconds,
the half-mile in 1:00 4 and three-
quarters in 1:31. f

Leaving New York Bound For New York: Hughes Plane

War Is Such Sport ...
Japan has decided that they will
have all their sport in China for the
next few years. Like Mussolini's son
they feel that bombing is such fine
sport that any mere game where there
is competition prevalent is boorish
and Occidental. They've decided not
to have the 1940 Olympic Games.
And so, for the second time
since the World War the Games
have no place to roost.
This morning the Tokyo govern-
ment announced that due to the
probability that its undeclared war
in China would last for a while (a
concession in itself) the financing of
the Games would not be feasible.
It would have been necessary
to build a track stadium at the
cost of some $1,250,000 and then
spend a couple of bucks more for
a swimming tank and stadium.,
When the Government and the
Army stopped to consider that
the money spent on Olympic
equipment would undoubtedly kill
50 or a 100 Chinese women and
children, they felt, and probably
justly so, that the money could
'be better expended on three or
four hand grenades. ' .
They hoped that they could bid
again in 1948. Evidently they forgot
all about 1944 or was it because they
didn't feel that they would have re-
cuperated sufficiently in 8 years from
their "undeclared war" to have the
At any rate, the Olympic com-
mitte is in an awful hole. Here
it is, less than two years 'til the
games and there just ain't no
place to go. It costs a lot of money
to build the stadiums and vil-


lages to house the Games and the
athletes and besides the building
project takes a lot of time.
It is said that England and Hel-
singfors, Finland have the inside
track but it seems logical to us that
with the limited time to build and get
the money it should go to some coun-
try which has had the Games re-
cently. That narrows the field down
pretty much. Berlin had them in '36
and Los Angeles was host in '32.
. ,
Not Again . .
It is not desirable that one na-
tion should have the Olympics
twice in a row and it is doubtful
that Germany would be finan-
cially willing and able to dupli-
cate its '36 Magnifique. Another
reason why I feel that it should
not go to Berlin again is that
while I think that sports and
political sentiment should be mu-
tually exclusive, it is only right
that athletes of all creeds and
color should be accorded equally
courteous receptions, something
that our Negro athletes did not
receive two years ago.
That leaves Los Angeles with its
perfect weather and fast track. Those
records would sure pop there. But
the powers that be would not be too
anxious to send it back to the United
States and besides, what would De-
troit's civic leaders say? It will
probably stay abroad.
One break that American college
athletes are getting from the Ja-
panese decision is that they won't
have to decide between the Olympics
and education. The late starting date
will undoubtedly be waived if the
Games come to continental Europe.

Health Service
Use Increases
Greater Demand justifies
New Additions
Approximately double the ratio of
enrollment to previous two years, the
number of services rendered the stu-
dent body by the Health Service for
the month of June continues to in-
crease, according to the monthly
Health Service report submitted by
Dr. Warren E. Forsythe, director.
The continued growth in the de-
mand for services, Dr. Forsythe says
in the report, has well justified the
installation of additional beds and
ofices in the Health Service this past
Dr. Forsythe reassures the student
body that this increase in services is
not indicative of an epidemic or un-
usual ill health situation on the Cam-
pus, but merely the freer use of the
Health Service by the ordinary stu-
The departments receiving the
greater part of the increased patients
~are the dispensary with 124;408 calls;
X-ray examinations department with
3,513 calls; refractions (eye examina-
tions for glasses) with 1,518 calls, pre-
scriptions filled, 13,054; laboratory
determinations, 25,660; physiother-
apy treatments, 9,059; sensitization
tests, 1,101; and acute respiratory ail-
ments, 6,310.


The specially built plane which Howard Hughes flew from New York to New York via Paris, Fairbanks and
Winnipeg is pictured' here talking off on the first leg of the journey at Floyd Bennett field. Hughes completed
the last part of his hop yesterday, 91 hours after this picture was taken.

Faculty Committee
Named For Social
The faculty committee assisting
with the ice cream social to be given
July 22 for the relief of Chinese stu-
dents was announced yesterday by
Elizabeth Notley, '39, general chair-
man of the affair.
Miss Ethel McCormick, social di-
rector of the League, is chaff:man of
the committee. She will be assisted
by Mrs. Edward W. Blakeman, as-
sistant chairman; Mrs. Louis M.
Eich, Mrs. Arno L. Bader, Mrs. Mable
R. Reed and Mrs. Carl Rufus.
The social is being given by the
ann Arbor Independents with the
assistance of Chinese students. Most
of the profits will be given to needy
Chinese who are in school here, and
any surplus will be sent to China for
medical relief, Miss Notley said.
Contributions from interested peo-
ple who will be unable to attend the
affair have been coming into her of-
fice, Miss McCormick stated.

Sarazen Upset
By Young Pro
Picard Enters Semi-finals;
Gene Misses Putts
14-(R)-Henry Picard, Hershey, Pa.,
pro, who never has won a national
championship, today ousted Gene
Sarazen, stocky Connecticut gentle-
man farmer who has won them all,
from the 1938 P.G.A. championship
and thus advanced into the semi-
final round with three other pre-
tourney favorites.
Picard, taking advantage of Sar-
azen's afternoon putting lapses to
wipe out the lead Gene took with the
four-under-par 68, won at 3 and 2.
Tomorrow Picard will go up against
Paul Runyan, pint-sized pro from
White Plains, N. Y. Who took down
the major honors in 1934. He put out
Horton Smith today at 4 and 3.
In the upper half of the draw it
will be Jimmy Hines of Great Neck,
N.. against Sluggin' Sam Snead of
White Sulphur Springs, W. Va. Hines
gained a 2 and 1 victory over Byron
Nelson, of Reading, Pa., and Snead
routed Jim Foulis of Chicago, 8 and

BOSTON, July 14.-(P)-The veter-
an Bob (Lefty) Grove hung up his
14th victory of the season today as
the Boston Red Sox pounded two De-
troit pitchers for a total of 15 hits
and a 12-1 decision today.
The victory, however, may prove
a costly one for the Red Sox. Grove
had to quit the game in the fifth in-
ning when his pitching arm became
Grove said his arm troubled him
after he fielded Charley Gehringer's
bunt in the first inning and became
worse as the game wore on. Despite
the sore arm he held the Tigers to
two hits until the fifth, when he was
relieved by Jack Wilson after Fox
and Christman singled.
CHICAGO, July 14.--VP)-A three-
hit shutout by Clay Bryant and a five-
hit performance by Bill Lee ended
the Cubs' six game losing streak to-
day and gave Chicago both ends of a
doubleheader with Philadelphia, 3 to
0 and 5 to 1.
After Buck Jordan opened the first
game with a single, Bryant retired 23
consecutive hitters. The only other
Phillie hits were singles by Phil Wein-
traub in the eighth and pinch hitter
Gil Brack in the ninth.
ST. LOUIS, July 14.- (P) - The
Boston Bees swarmed on four Car-
dinal hurlers today for their second
10 to 5 victory in as many days over
the remnants of the once mighty Gas
House Gang.
Lou Fette showed flashes of his old
form in holding the Cardinals to two
hits for the first five innings and then

eased up after his mates had estab-
lished a four-run lead.
CINCINNATI, July 14.-(P)-The
Reds took advantage of a crack in
the usually reliable defenses of the
New York Giants in the first inming
today to shove across the only run of
the ball game for a 1 to 0 victory over
the National League champions.
The run was a tough break for
Harry Gumbert who pitched four-hit
ball, only to lose. Bucky Walters al-
lowed five hits in winning.
, NEW YORK, July 14.-()-The
Yankees made it four straight over
the St. Louis Browns and retained
their half-game lead in the American
League race today with a 5 to 4 vic-
tory in another weird exhibition of
The game was halted by rain with
the Yankees at bat in the last of the
WASHINGTON, July 14.-(P)-
Cleveland pounded out a 5 to 1 vic-
tory over Washington today, Mel
Harder hurling shutout ball until the
final frame when Al Simmons drove
a homer into the center field bleach-
Harder allowed only eight hits. Un-
til Simmons banged in his homer,
Harder hadn't let a runner get to
third. He issued no walks.
The Chicago White Sox won a free-
hitting game from the Athletics, 9 to
8, here today.
Bill Werber's double and Bob John-
son's 17th homer of the season with
one on gave the A's a three-run lead
in the first.
