Avery Brundage and his fellow
Olympic officials last week saved
themselves from being the ill wind
that blows no good.
Many sports fans were calling
for replacement of amateur ath
letic officials after- they placed
a ban on any further amateur com
petition by this country's top miler
But last week Wes was forgotten
as the Olympic tryout officials con
sented to let Dave Simc and Bud
Held compete in events for which
they had failed to qualify.
Held, the United States's leading
javeline thrower, with srtop mark
of 268 plus ft., has been suffering
from several injuries the past few

There Is a need for more instruc
tion ki geography not only for
those who will become airline em
ployees but for all students since
men are now living ia the air age
This belief was expressed at a
University Air Age Education
workshop Tuesday by Geor e
Gardner, superintendent of edu
cational services for Pan Ameri
can World Airway.
In discussing global geography,
Gardner pointed out that important
air routes of the future are bound
to cross over the Arctic because
that offers the shortest distance
between important traffic points.
Gardner said there are six fac
tors which have made long-range
flight possible. These are: (1) use
of multiple engine planes; (2) im
provement in design of planes and
engines; (3) fuel conservation; (4)
taking advantage of the winds;
(5) navigation Jjy dead reckoning,
celestial navigation and radio
guidance; and (6) the engineering
formula, HowgozSt, for charting a
flight in terms of distance covered
and fuel used. " . I
