Mr. Gansser offered the following:
Senate resolution No. 24.

Whereas: The people of Michigan are much concerned about the development of our national air service, and

Whereas: We learn with regret of the neglect of Selfridge Field, near Mt. Clemens, which neglect will soon compel its total abandonment, and

Whereas: The army pursuit squadron at Selfridge Field is officially recognized as one of our nation's most efficient air units, proving the adaptability of Selfridge Field for air service purposes, and

Whereas: Selfridge Field is near the heart of the motor industry of America, with all the advantages which this location naturally gives to our national air service;

Therefore: Be it resolved by the Senate of Michigan in regular session assembled, that we petition the President of the United States as commander-inchief; the Secretary of War, commanding Selfridge Field; and the Congress of the United States, to provide the funds necessary for immediately improving Selfridge Field, and so make it one of the leading units in an up-to-date national air service.

Be it further Resolved: That copies of this petition be sent to the United States Senators and Congressmen from Michigan, with the urgent request for their best efforts to assure the retention and improvement of Selfridge Field, and the expansion of our national air service, both commercial and for the national defense.

The resolution was adopted.
