ship Birmingham off Hampton roads to the mainland A platform similar to the one on tha Pennsylvania was used at that time Following the event the Navy De partment became Interested and Secretary Meyer recommended to Congress that an appropriation for an aeroplane division of - the Navy be made The matter Is still under discussion At the same time the Secretary expressed a destrs that some aviator attempt to land on a vessel The opportunity has arisen and the members of the citlsens committee have secured the co - operation of the naval officials for the trial Ensign Roy Le Claire Stover aid to Rear - AdmiralAdmiral Edward B Barry has been detailed to make the arrangements for the flight and a number of naval offlcera have been appointed to observe the flight and report to Secretary Meyer Lieutenant McClasky of the United States Marine Corps went to Loe Angeles and made the preliminary arrangements with Ely and Glenn Curtlss The flight will take place - some day this week the exact time to be announced later Ely has been asked repeatedly whether he thought that his experiment would prove a success and Invariably haa answered I wouldnt undertake It If I did not think I could do It On 1 1 1 n n 1 1 n 1 1 n 1 1 1 1 m 1 1 4 t n 1 1 1 1 Gossip Heard in and Around the Hangars THERE were of course the usual number of persons hangara filled with a raaaa of valuable Information A around the vhlch hey were anxious to Impart to any and everybody One young mlas asked her escort what was the difference between a Wright and a Curtlss machine Its Just this way said he In the Wright machine the hangar la rigid while In the Curtlss model It Is flexible There are aome minor differences but that la the main one But what le the hangar T was the next question The hangar Why thats that business In front And he pointed to the forward planes of the Curtlsr machine With this hie companion was content and they proceeded to the next shed where he gave some more equally reliable Information regarding the BlerloL v The bromide remark of the meet Is always made when the Blerlot or Antoinette machines leave the ground Every other person says It It la as follows - Why Its Just like a big dragonfly The next one la Thats the first machine that really looks like a bird Then comes the last one I wonder what the birds think when they see that big thing up there among themT It la not generally known that Olenn Curtlas is donating his services to the meet free of charge His contract does not call for him to make a single flight but yesterday he announced his Intention of attempting several records during the meet Today he will endeavor to break his Own record for speed In his racer He believes that he can get a great burst of speed from his racing machine If weather conditions are favorable and ha will at least make the attempt It seems strange to hear aviators asking for rain but that was heard around the hangars yesterday When asked the meaning of the wish for wet weather one of them said We dont want wet weather while we are flying but an Ideal day would be a fine one following a short spell of rain If we had rain tonight for Instance the condition would be perfect tomorrow The rain would give a density to the atmosphere which would be Just the thing we need for what we term a good grip on the air Still we have no fault to find with San Franciscos climate and If the present conditions continue we shall be perfectly satisfied Aviator Eugene Ely who Is to fly from the battle - ship Pennsylvania to the aviation field made a trip to Mane Island Saturday for the purpose of Inspecting the platform which Is being erected on the vessel tor his accommodation He again said that he waa satisfied he would perform the projected feat without any trouble The platform Is thirty feet wide and 110 feet long and according to Ely gives ample room for his ascent from the ship and his subsequent descent on his return trip Ensign Roy Lerlalre Stover aid to Admiral Berry Is anxious to take the trip with Ely and It is probable that some such arrangement will be made for the trip from or to the vessel Ensign T O Ellyson was one of the Interested observers of the doings around the hangars Ellyson has been detailed to act under the Instructions of Aviator Olenn Curtlss and will accompany the blrdtnan to San Diego after this meet where a number of experiments will be made for the Navy The Ensign will receive Instructions from Curtlss and will be fully taught in all branches of aeronautics The Antoinette monoplane developed a streak of bashfulness yesterday and a canvas curtain hid her from the gaze of the multitude Latham her owner said that this was done because the Interest of the publlo had been so arouwed by his performance of the previous day that he was besieged with questioners and would - be congratulators and he had to take some means of self - protection so that his mechanicians could work unobstructed Daring of Aviators Shown in Flights AFTER all the crowd wa the real show Tho mar velous flying In the face of bad wind conditions waa secondary Think of It nearly 100000 humans wild with enthusiasm In one orderly mass We were prepared for 75000 persons This vast gathering taxed every resource Which could be brought to bear Glenn Curtlas says It was the greatest audience that ever attended an aviation meet Roy Km benshue says Tou have made a new altitude record tor attendance Radley says I never saw anything Ilka It Latham comments San Francisco Is beyond question - - the worlds greatest show town Every aviator who went up today took hla life In his hands ttie wind was fraaky There were thrills a - plenty to thoae who knew The spectacular events must await better wind conditions Monday should furnish plenty of excitement F E SCOTFORD President of Aviation Meet Danger lurked In every wind puff at Selfrldge Field today Tho result spelled delay for the military experiments There can be no bomb dropping or wireless experiments when aviators have t6 strain - every nerve to prevent capslxlna In the cross and contrsry winds Radley and Latham had slight accidents which would have been serious had these men been less expert aa man - birds but they will be ready for flyltg today The experiments will proceed Just as soon aa wind conditions will permit LIEUTENANT PAUL W BECK Secretary of Meet 0 O AVPS1BMP i PARIS GOSSPS 1 BOSYr v -
