Local park attendants say that the parks are still running merrily, with every evening finding half a down or more steak roasts In each of the two parka. Damp weather apparently falls to dampen the ardor of the outdoor enthusiast*. Park attendants declare that they have discovered a number of parties sitting under extemporized shelters enjoying their suppers to their heart's content. At Lawrence park the shelter house can be put into use—and Is. At Slnnls- slppl park there is no shelter house, but when it Is not raining the steak enthusiasts ait around the tables In overcoats and blankets: when it rains, they are to be often found contentedly munching their, suppers in their cars. When the party U large, the cart are driven dose together, the doors opened between and the picnickers manage to pas* the eatables back and forth. In fact, some of them declare that it i* thus eating under hardships that makes the fun more appealing.

E. Brant and the co-operation of E. P. Jacoby of the Sterling municipal airport, people of this section of the state will have the grand opportunity of seeing and operating the Sinclair night trainer. There has been such a demand for this trainer that It will be exhibited In only three other cities In the state of Illinois. The trainer comes to the sterling municipal airport Saturday. Oct.25, and Sunday, Oct. M. An air corps recruiting unit will accompany the trainer here and participate in the exhibit- next Saturday afternoon. This flight trainer now on tour Is giving hundreds of people, who never had thought about piloting a plane, a chance to test their aptitude for flying. It can be maneuvered Ilk*..* real plane. The propeller blasts a 75-mlle-an-hour slip-stream over the trainer and gives the "feel" of actual flying. The tour is sponsored by Sinclair in co-operation with national defense activities. Starting several months ago on a patriotic tour of the country, the trainer has visited hundreds of cities and towns and has been seen and operated by thousands In over 35 states...The trainer is being Joan- ed to airports throughout the country as a part of the Sinclair Oil company drive to stimulate Interest in aviation for national defense. Young men between the afe* of home. The police have not discovered any trace of the bicycle. 18 and 23 show the best aptitude for flying. Next on the list are girls between the ages of 19 and 20 who do not drive cars. Strangely, they show more pilot-ability than their auto-driving older and younger sisters. Bill Sweet, America's famous voice behind the public address system at all big air races and shows, will be in chare of the trainer here. The trainer looks like an abbreviated airplane which has been rigged 15 feet from the around. The flight trainer can duplicate every known aviation maneuver with safety to the embryo pilot. A record will be made of each flight test taken by local persons and special prizes will be awarded to those with the the best rating.
