RYAN AND WILLS
ENTER LAST LAP
(By Associated Press)
WIMBLEDON, Eng., June 28.-Grea
is Elizabeth Ryan in American tennis
circles in Wimbledon tonight. She
scored a great victory over Mrs. Katie
McKane Godfrey, the 1926 Wimbledon
champion, and was the first American
woman to reach the semi-finals on a
day marked by two American victories
-both by women-and one defeat
which was nearly as glorious as a tri-
umph.
Miss Helen Wills chalked up the
second American win, but Francis T.
Hunter went down with colors flying
before the French ace, Henri Cochet.
The shadow of ill luck which seems
to have followed Miss Ryan through-
out the numerous years of Wimbledon
competition appears to have been dis-
pelled and many already have visions
of an all--American final between the
two Californians, Miss Wills and Miss
Ryan.
As Miss Ryan and Mrs. Godfree
played they chattered and smiled as
they crossed over and halted under
the umpire's stand. But in the end
fatigue overcame the English girl.
Miss Ryan was the picture of health
and strength, finishing off a trying
match without the semblance of an
effort, ending 3-6, 6-4, 6-4.
The victory of Helen Wills was just
a day's work for the businesslike Berk-
ley girl. She disposed of Mrs. Pea-
cock of South America in straight
sets, 6-3, 6-1.
Tilden's , cheerful smile, as he
watched his colleague Hunter leading,
two sets love, faded into a shock of.
surprise, then a gasp of astonishment,
as he saw Cochet reeling off game af-
ter game in the last three sets. The ,
match ended in favor of the French-
man, 3-6, 3-6, 6,2, 6-2, and 6-3.
GOODYEAR DESIGN
WINS FIRST PRIZE
WASHINGTON, June 28. - The
G-oodyear Tire & Rubber Co., of Akron,
0., today was awarded first prize in
the Navy's design competition for a
new airship of 6,500-000 cubic feet gast
capacity.
A prize of $50,000 is carried with the
award for the design of the craft,
which will be more than twice as
large sa the Los Angeles. The prize,
however, can not be given to the com-
pany receiving the contract to build
the ship.
A second award of .$5,000 was ap-
proved for purchase of the design
submitted by W. Watters Pagon, of
Baltimore, while the design of Dr.t
Johannes Schwengler, of Stretlitz,
Germany, was given honorable men-

Since the construction contract un-
der the bill authorizing two such air-
ships must be awarded American con-t

favorable position of the Goodyear
company in work of this nature, it

AIR TOUR PILOTS,
READY FOR FLIGHT f
TO SCHENECTADY,

The first meeting was held yester-
day afternoon in the Natural Science
auditorium. Lee H. Bierce of the
Association of Commerce, Grand Rap-
ids, the presiding secretary, opened
the meeting with a short talk. The
invocation was given by Rev. A. W.
Stalker of ths First M. E. church, Ann
Arbor. The welcoming address wa
presented by George J. Burke in be-
half of the Ann Arbor Board of Com-
merce and Industrial Commission.
Addresses were also given by R. G.
Knutson of the Industrial Commission
of Wisconsin, Madison; Frank Wade,
president of the Michigan Federation
of Labor, and Ernest W. Corn, field
representative of the National Safety
Council, Chicago.
Future Safety Stressed
All the addresses were characterized
by the outlook onrsafety conditions
for the future. Mr. Cor'n, who gave
the closing address of the meeting,
stated that over 4,000 of the leading
industries intthe Unitde States were
members of the council and that no
industry could well afford to dispense
with the membership. He also stated
that in accident prevention, mechani-
cal safe guards were only one third
of the battle' and that it is the duty
of the employer to impress on the
employee the need for safety. He as-
serted that the employee is only on
the job in body and has left his mind
at home. "It is a problem of tremen-
dons size and is not solved or never
Will be," Mr. Corn said. "The prob-
lem of accident prevention should im-
press all those concerned by its se-
verness and dignity and should be
upheld to protect the indutrial work
er and his family."

The big tri-motored Fakker had ave-

Charles Carter, decided it was too late
to start, as the Army had a lead of al-
most five hours.
