BY RICHARD T. WHITE By now, you've heard the rumors and have seen the aircraft. You've asked your fellow students, "Is it really ours?'' Yes. The blue and white Convair-8321 Charlie was donated to Embry-Riddle by Mohawk Airlines after having a tour of duty with the Holman-Moody Company by way of lease agreement. TO Mohawk we should be ever greatful of their generosity because the aircraft should provide quite valuable to all of ~

Mr. Tacker, E-R's Chief Pilc-, was helpful to the AVIOS in supplying facts about the new acquisition. 8321-C was built in 1948 probably one of the first off .he assembly line on wt.~ch176 were built. The plane has a maximum seatinn capacity of 40 but is ~resentlvin an executive configurHtion with forward and rear gallies, lavatory, plush seats and impressive avionics including weather radar. At a gross weight of 40.500 lbs. normal cruise is about 270 mph true. 2,400 horses connected to each throttle assures a 30,000' service ceiling (book figure.) Mr. Tacker expressed pleasure in knowing that this aircraft is presently airworthy and holds a valid Annual Certificate until March. The aircraft could be certihicated under part 135 if necessary. Furthermore, no apparent complications were encountered during the process of changing ownership. 8321-C is a fine looking bird. She is presently carrying her life's history in official paperwork in the aft cargo compartment. These required records are contained in literally dozens of boxes






and conceivably weigh 100 lbs. or more. The big question now is "What will Embry-Riddle do with both the Convair 240 and the new DC-3?" The Administration is carefully working on plans for these two aircraft. Our guiss is that the ultimate

US. ~



destrny of the u.rcraft will allow for the greatest benefit to the most students. In any event, we hope that these two aircraft will be put to good use, and when a decision is made the AVION will be there to report it.


The atmosphere. at the ER Valentine's Dance held at the Desert Inn this past Saturday was definitely a pretty happy and congenial one. The entertainment was provided by the two bands: The Academy, and the Checkmates, and it seemed that most of

those present were inspired (?)out ts the dance floor at one time or another during the course of the evening. Set-ups for those drinking were also readily available. Hats off to the SGA for a job well done!

Berndt that tb? present code had come ahout in erlor, 2nd efiorts will be made to rectify it until the Dress Code Committee meets ~ l dcomes up with a solution. A petition is being circulated nmong fliqlit students to have the current dress code, which was recommended by the Adsinistration but not signed by any student representltives, chlnqed; many fliqht students feel it is too militaristic. !'r. Serndt coneratulated Social Functions Committee Chairmln Dan Kessler ~-~


on a vergsiccessful Valentine's Dance. He also announced the possibility of a filln on drug abi~sebeing shown February 23. There wil' be a convention is Gainssville >:arch 6 and 7 to ratify the constitiition of a Floridswide association of student governments; the Council is sending two dele~ a t e sto this convention. First Vice President. Dan Martin informed all committee chairmen that -connittees sre to meet at least twice a month. .3o?ond Vice President. Phil Woodruff submitted a motion to have Ions-tcrn recognition for representatives who have done a great deal of work for the SGA by means of a composite photo of the individuals framed and run? in a prominent spot within the Institute; the motion wss passed, 30 In favor, 1 abstainin~. Third Vice President. Merritt Welch -revised by the Board of Managers, is

reported that the new Constitution, currently at the Print Shop. Hepresentatives should be prepared to disouss it at next week's meeting.

The Treasurer's -

Heport was accepted as written unanimously.

Secretary's Report. Stephen Avery has received resolutions regarding the flight line dress code and cars parking in the motorcycle-only parking lots. The new list of committees will be ready at the end of the wee!<. Ilr. Avery also thanked the SGA for their gift to him while he was hospitalized. Blood Drive. Chairman Dennis Krol distributed and explained to the presidents of campus organizations the rules for the Blood Drive Trophy competition (driest-bled organization) and the Blood Drive ~romdtion contest (best all-around advertising for the Drive). Each organization drew an area of the campus in which to place its posters, signs, etc. Letters asking merchants to donate prizes for the Blood Drive may be picked up in the SGA office next Monday. Facilities. Jim Dunn reported that a school-crossing sign has been placed near the A & P area. The WATS (Wide Area Telephone Service) line costs the school about $350 for 10 hours' use a month; the resolution asking that graduating students be allowed to.use it in conneation with :,b placements was therefore answered negatively. Food Service. Proposed increases in food prices will be investigate by the Food Service Committee.

Social Functions. Dan Kessler reported a loss to the SGA of $467 for the Strawberry Alarm Clock concert. Many other groups will be coming to the Daytona area, and we have an opportunity to sponsor some of them; theonly way to make money on such functions is to be willing to take a loss on the first few, whiie gaining experience and publfcity for future concerts. This concert was somewhat of a success, considering the extremely short notice and its being held on a Monday night. Student Aid. Dan Sturm reported that $500 has been accumulated for the Student Aid grants, which will be distributed sometime In March. Traffic. A new policy is forthcoming regarding no-registration and lateregistration violations. Another campus policeman may be added. The - -

BY MARTY STILLING The draft lottery program initiated by President Nixon on November 26, 1969 was at first expected to give most draft eligible men an idea of their status with regard to the possibility of induction. It has failed in this regard with the possibility. that this idea was misinterpreted from a Defense Department release.

Lottery Solving No Problems In the release by the Defense Department it is estimated that 850,000 men between the ages of 19 to 25 were available for induction. It was estimated 500,000 would be immediately available. 350,000 additional men would become available during 1970 when their student deferments expire. Approximately 500,000 men will be needed, of which almost half will be volunteers leaving a need for 250,000 inductees. However, normally 50% of the men called for induction do not serve in the Armed Forces. This it due to the fact that some fail their physicals, some get hold of 1-S classifications, some refuse induction .or are just not found Due to these factors approximately 500,000 men will be called for induction. This means that most of the lottery members will be used by many of the draft boards throughout the country. By the Selective Service's own statistics, 90% of the men in the available manpower pool axe called up for induction: Recently, the Supreme Court has ruled the draft boards may not speed up induction orders of Vietnam War protestors as punishment. General Lewis B. Hershey had initiated this procedure more than two years ago. The practice received opposition from those of every political persuasion It was viewed by many as an illegal way to crush dissent. Soon the Senate Armed Services Committee plans to meet to discuss the

BY THE APOSTLE STEVE The women in the songs of 1776, 1812, 1917, 1945, 1952, and 1970 are the same women. The guns still shoot, albeit farther and faster now. The uniforms have changed and the stars of our time-torn flag-have changed in number, but they represent Americans. What is it, then, that chanaes the American horizon Go a red? Amer-.--- blood - - - ica's history is rich in blood. American blood is rich. It's rich in heritage; a heritage of strugale. of travelina where Ghiily winds biow, of finding beauty, and of findins one's self. There must aiways be the mood, freedom in American heritage. This is the word I believe, that is making scars on the face of the country in my mind. My American neighbors who drank an ale or two and sat to draw up my nation's constitution blundered a bit. They allowed a freedom of interpretation that proved paradoxical when put to a test. ~


in todays court system. These people are a minority. The law should serve the majority, and yet, the majority can't speak for all the dust in the air. The road to frk-:?? is long and dusty. Meny people died for a nations liberty and there wasn't an individual in the lot. If my nation continues to fight for individual freedoms, those champions of American heritage really will be dead.


The object is, that humans must think as humans to interpret successfully. That is what troubles my nation. A few people can easilv use our constitution, as is being proven ~ossibilitiesof draft reform and the feasibility of an all volunteer army. The Pentagon has advised that student deferments be thrown out.

America isn't in VietNam defending America. A peoples freedom is at stake. There is no "I" in our aims. It is all "we". The water is growing deep around us as the "1's" in our country punch holes in the raft of freedom. As we lose control of our daughters and their sons, and our times change, there is still the country that protects, and is an example to other nations and other peoples. As our world shrinks, our world expands. America grows smaller and the effects of America grow larger. A man cannot learn all the knowledge available to him, today, and must relegate himself to his place in the universe and, instead, place mankind where he wills himself. This will be an A-' merica, lost, likewise. tern has self-righteously taken tlle functions of both. judge and jury in ifst handling of war protestors I certainly hope that this will not be the end of the high court's handling of the totalitarian enforcement used in our SSS.

Goodbye Ball

EAGLES WORK OUT Spring came with a spitball this year as the Eaglc baseball squad took to the diamond for spring training. Coach Dave Lowe got his crew together For .a preliminary workout on Monday afternoon. The heavily junior and Senior squad is traditionally weak at the catcher and shortstop positions, but Coach Lowe hopes that some

new talent in the form of transfer students and sophomores will plug this gap. <

. The season begins in early March with traditional cross town rival Bethune Cookman slated as the first victim. Other opponents will include FIT Seminole JC,and a group of visiting northerners.

Because of overindulgence at the Saturday night Valentine's dance it took a while to get going on Sunday. It took all day to get back out to Blue Springs and when we finally got into the water it was almost dark. One of the club members decided that instead of spending time at 60 feet searching for artifacts with just a hand light, he would scoop up a bag full of sand and rocks, bring it to the surface, and take it home where he .could sort out the goodies in comfort. It took three people more than a half an hour to get the bag, which weighs over a hundred pounds, up out of the cave, over the bank, and' into the car.

Serres Lauded

During the past tour weeks the AVION, through its Institutions Within the Institute series has attempted to open the minds of those on campus who are responsible for the student body, change the SGA, the faculty and the administration, as well as the board of Trustees. Apparently we've made at least some success in our efforts. Each week as the serres continued, so did the feedback - especially from the facultv and administration. Some typical comments were: "Why s t o p a t j u s t

In conclusion, we would like to take this opportunity to thank the faculty and administrators who cooperated with us in se-

curing accurate facts. Finally, a debt of g;atitude goes to our Editor, Linda Colgan, for allowing the AVION to be used as a sounding board.

I\' dt the AVION are pleased with the reception our series has received. Most students have had favorable comments for the series even though written response was light. As the voice of the camaus, the AVION will continue to press for a better school for you the students. If in the future there is a need for more "constructive criticism" we will endeavor to present it.
