EnrWJarJTfl 2 - V - THE WASHINGTOJS POST SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 19 1908 made it cleared the end Of the propeller blades by at least inches 5 Mr Wright think that this Wire after having been struck by the propeller Imbedded Itself in it and dragged it iTom Its Xastenlng This 4f t Um help less to control the rear rudder He says that he knew something had happened the instant the propeller blade was broken and flew off He did not dare look1 be - hind In trying to control tbe machine he found the rear rudder would not work The next Instant he cut off the motor and started to descend he Bays Only one propeller was working and this had a tendency to turn the machine inward The front planes worked all right and would unquestionably have righted the machine again in Mr frights opinion had he been at a greater height at the moment of tne accident say 200 feet or so He is convinced he could have made a comparatively easy landing if he had fallen from a greater height though it all happened in a very few seconds he says he felt be was getting tbe machine under control again as it uit the grounu lhat is to say he might hae righted it and glided down to safety The sbort distance from tne ground prevented this Heard Selfridge Shout He says that the only thing be beard Ueut Selfridge say as the machine was falling was 1b Oh The lieutenant must have jelled this because it Is almost impossible to bear a conversation with the propeller blades churning about Mr WrigM sajs he never eutlrely Iostcon -

plints and the broken ribs were held in place by a tight - fitting leather jacket Though of frail physique he rallied extremely well from the shock and was In good spirits throughout the day The surgeons say he will suffer a little pain for a week or two while the broken bones are knitting Recovery Will Take Long Capt Bailey In explaining the aviators chances of complete recovery said It probably would be at least nine months before Mr Wright will have the full ue Of his broken leg Of course he Mil be able to move about pn crutches long before that time The thigh is broken near the hip It was a clean break Charles R Flint said last night that Mr Wright had received a message from his brother but its contents would not bo revealed Mr Flnt said that he himself had had a cablegram from Wilbur Wrght saying the latter would not make any more flights in France until next Monday out of respect to the memory of Lieut Selfridge Mr Flint would not dlscusi the exact status of his financial relations with the Wrights He did say however that he was convinced they would both continue tne work wmen tney bad set ror themselves when they planned the conquest of the air Mr Flint visited Mr Wright In tlie morning Others who visited the hospital included Dr Zahm the aeronautical et - Eer whose guest Mr Wright was at the osmos Club and Brg Gen - Crozler chief of ordnance whoe guest the aviator was to have been Thursday night PABIS PEESS SYMPATHETIC Accident Held to Point Out Pen of At tempts to Fly Pari Sept lS - The French press is FjLi swinging the aeroplane rapidly around on Its axis This must have been the criti cal instant It then became necessary to operate the lever with the correct turning movement At the same time if the powei of the motor was cut off it would be eas to keep the machine on an even keel and allow it to descend on Its own planes May Not Have Loosed Lever The difficult doubtless was that to shut off the power it is necessary to let go the lever momentarily and In the mental confusion of an unprecedented mishap this may not have been done i his necessity of relinquishing the lever to shut off tho power Is a defect which I have been studving It could easily be remedied by a connection w hich would permit the foot instead of the arm to operate the cut - off After this explanation of what he believed had occurred at vCashington Air Wright was left alone to pull himself together A few minutes later a friend entered the shed and found him sitting with his head In his hands He looked up sadl and said If anything could make me abandon further work in solving the problem of heavicr - than - alr flight which has been my dream since I was 11 years old It would be an accident like this men springing up suddenly Mr Wright declared Xo we have solved this problem With us living is not an experiment it is a demonstration I will wait until 1 hear from Orv Hie The announcement of the postponement of the trials scheduled today and the reasons therefor which were at once made known created a profound Impression among those who had gathered at the fleld and there were many expressions oT deep sympathy from the local inhabitants Has Theory as to Cause After studing fuller dispatches Wilbur Wright gave It as his opinion that none of the explanations of the accident was adequate He said he had a theorj but he did not care to mention It in the absence of supporting facts It was evident that this theory concerns the transmis sion gear with which Orvllle wrote he will take the place next week of Lieut Selfridge who was to have assisted Lieut Loulois and who was killed n the wreck of the Wright aeroplane at Fort Mj er yesterday KNEW BOOMERANG VICTIM unanimous in Its expressions of profound Borrow for and sympathy with Orvile Wright in his accident at Washington The Mew Is gene ally held that this accident demonstrates that flying with ncavier - than - alr machines is still attend ed with great peril SZECHENYIS IN AUTO CRASH Former Miss Gladys Vandeibilt and Hus band Have a Narrow Escape Vienna Sept 18 Count and Countess Sxechenyi have suffered an automobile accident in Hungary Their injuries bow ever are confined to shock and a few bruises The - count and the countess who was mis uiaay vanaerbiit of New Tork were returning from the Hungarian army maneuvers when their car ran Into the pillar - of a bridge and was wrecked The occupants had a marvelous escape Continuing Mr Wright declared it was most important that the exact cause of the accident be established and he expressed the hope that his brothers assistants would be able to make a minute examination Wilbur Wright was - greatly concerned i at the effect the news may have on the health of his aged father FAVORS ONE PROPELLER Lieut Selfridge Coworker of Aeronaut Recently Killed Hammondsport N Y Sept 18 Lieut Selfridge of the United States signal corps had been deeply interested In air flight since Prof Alexander Graham Bell began his experiments here several years ago He was stationed last year at the aerial experiment station In Hammondsport and witnessed all the important flights by the aeronauts under the direction of Prof Bell Lieut Selfridge was a warm personal friend of Charles Oliver Jones who fell to death from the airship Boomerang in Maine several weeks ago The lieutenants advice had been of great help In the perfecting of the Boomerang and he supervised flights of the June Bug which established several records for short flights at Hammondsport last May When Orvlile Wright announced his trial flights at Fort Myer Lieut Selfridge was sent to the foit where his expert knowledge of aeronautics could be of best service to the government PARENTS TO COME HERE Hygiene observed In the home will be the most potent factor in checking the advance of consumption according to Dr Bertll Buhre secretary of the Swedish National Anti - Tuberculosis Association who is here to tell the International Tuberculosis Congress what his country Is doing in the great battle against that malady Dr Buhre who has begun the installation In the new National Museum building of the fine exhibit which Sweden has sent to the congress contends that parents either through Ignorance or neglect of hygienic principles are largely responsible for conditions which invite the germs of tuberculosis In support of this he points to the high deatrr rate from consumption among persons between tho ages of IS and 30 years or at a time of life when they can be of most value to the nation The reason for this he says is that because of this inattention to hygiene the child at a fender age Is susceptible to the germ which a few years later develops and finds a ready victim Isolation and Hygiene There Is certainly every reason to hope that the progress of consumption will be materially checked through a more exten sive system of isolation of consumptives In sanatoria and other establishments and through the introduction of better principles of hygiene into the dally life of the people said Dr Buhre In many cases especially In poor homes condi tions must necessarily baffle all our efforts to protect the growing child The consumptive member of the family however good his intentions may be cannot - possibly be as careful at home as he ought He neither can nor will permanently stay at a hospital separated from his family Considering that many affected persons die as a result of worry incident to such separation our best results ltseems to me would be obtained In making the home as hygienic and as cheerful as possible Public Baths a Necessity Dr Buhre Is a stanch believer In the efficacy of the public bath as a means of protecting health and preventing disease In no city he says where public baths have been estab lished Is the death rate as high as In cities where this Institution is unknown When told that Washington was without one he expressed surprise and added that he regarded the establishment of such an Institution a great public need In any city with such a mixed population Most emphatically It would pay both In the health and moral tone of the population for your city to have public baths In the big cities of Sweden there are numerous baths open to all classes People regard them as a necessity I look on them as a most effective agent in promoting good healthful surroundings I know of no Deiter puDllc or private philanthropy One lesult of the fight against tuberculosis deplored by Dr Buhre is the growing terror at the presence of the consumptive as he terms it Such alarm he declares Is not only unnecessary but in many cases cowardly It often tends to retard Drocrress of tho cure by imposing hardships on the victim Danger in Fear of Disease Dread of consumption has shown Itself In many ways he said and has become an enemy to society that threatens to counteract the campaign against tuberculosis It must there - rfore be combated in every possible way tnis is most easily done by teaching the public under what conditions and In what manner consumption becomes Infectious - While there are many details touching this point still under discussion on one point all scientific men agree namely that it Is the spu -
