A brand new contest too, of a type never before held in the bay district.

Hydro-airplane will compete November on Lake Merrltt In a new, spectacular TRIBUNE Airplane Model league event. In which many attractive trophies will be the prizes. Announcement that a hydro-airplane meet on Lake Merrltt will be held came from officials of The TRIBUNE league as a result of the recent success of the TRIBUNE outdoor contest at Oakland airport and of the state fair outdoor competition at Bacramento. The new oontest, it is believed, will be of a more spectacular na-meets. LAUNCHED ON WATER The tiny model hydro-airplanes, anapptly modeled after the large, man-carrying types of water airplanes, will be launched from the water, will skim the jurfaee and then rise into the air for what their builders hope will be long flights.

The TRIBUNE league declared there will be three event In the forthcoming water meet. First, there will be the flying tick R. O. W. (rise off water); Asa- LA4'' i fa 4 VVii have small cabins with windows or else a small cockpit with windshield.

This rule will be enforced. Any model will be banned from the contest if, in the opinion oil Judges, It Is not in spirit with the letter or the rules. PAPER TUBES BANNED. In this event, tissue paper tubes covering the rubber will not be tolerated. Light weight models of the stick type with extremely light structures to cover the rubber will not be allowed in the commercial event.

Each model must rise off water ana must not oe pushed or other wise aided by contestants. Flights will be timed from launching nntll the model touches the water or object halting the official flight. FLYING STICK CONTEST. Flying Scale Model ContestThe only limiting factors In this Is that a model cannot have a wing spread of over feet. Every part must be exact to scale as re gards size, position of parts, when noun, a picture or 'real ship after which model was scaled, or manufacturers' drawings or any outline clipped from magazines or newspapers must accompany madcls.

Originality In construe. tlon details will have some bear ing on the Judging of these models. Must all have double-surfaced wing and tall surfaces. Model must rise off water under own power without aid from contest. ant Pontoon used on flying scale models should be perfect as to scale.

In such. features as the types of bottoms need and other details. THREE FLIGHTS ALLOWED. Each contestant Is allowed three official nights and three unoffl clal flights will count as one offi cial flights. An unofficial flight win do any night under five sec onds or any flight In which the plane taxis along the water for over ten seconds.

The Maximum of official flights will be nine. Judging will be done by a group possessing an expert knowledge of airplanes, Tne winning plane will ne that which In the opinion of Judges Is best model, possesses the oesi nying qualities and workman ship and resembles more closely the model from which It I built. Propellers used In the contest must be to scale as ta iHnm-- but the pitch and area of the blades may ne changed In the commercial nm. flvina boots will be allowed In which the rnbber Is not enclosed, providing tnese boats are patterned after large man-carrying rirln shim Twin pushers using single floats must oe entered In the stick vnt Scale model flying boats will be permitted to have rubber motors outsiae or tne rusciage.

Because the outdoor events at the Oakland airport and the etate fair were so wonderful for the boys, The TRIBUNE has decided to launch a hydro-airplane meet to be held on Lake Merrltt. That ought to please hundreds of northern Callfornna builders who have wanted to try their hands at a water plane, In building a hydro-airplane, contestants must remember that their models should be of lighter construction than previously. They should remember, also, that pro- pellers should be smaller, of higher pitch, with plenty of power. The power Is needed to take the ships off the water, so that when they are In the air they naturally speed taster than the usual outdoor plane. CARE IN PONTOONS.

Due care should be employed In designing the pontoons and the placing of these on tne models. You will find that by using flat bottoms on the pontoons the model will rise off the water much faster. The bottoms, as used on large planes, are primarily there for re ducing the shock on landing which of course. Isn't of much Importance In model airplane work. In flying the flying stick and commercial hydros it Is better to use three small pontoons two In front and one in the rear, rather than one or two long pontoons, which cause too much surface mo tion.

This surface friction neces. sitates the use of too much power In model airplane work. LIGHT BUT STRONG. Boys who Intend to build hydro models should remember, too, that though It Is well to build them light the framework should be strong enough to stand four or five coats of banana oil, so that if the ship becomes submerged It may be taken out, dried, and flown again none the worse for the experience. The all balsa hydros, with wings covered with tissue which are in turn coated with banana oil, are consistent performers.

They are good planes with which to gain ex perlence of hydro construction, and should serve as excellent substl tutes In case the -light contest models become broken. It Is Important to fly your hydro models from the water. Don think that because the hydro will rise from a floor or other hard surface that it will do from the water. The only method by which you may obtain experience with hydro models Is to fly them under the same conditions that you win find the day of the meet. Inquest Ordered In Suisun Murder VALLEJO, Bept.
