there are several trophies in America
offered for outstanding events in air

National Aeronautic Association
here know of only one ea«h prize
now open to competition. This is the

Orteig of New York, and open to

The money is now on dejmsit in an
American bank and has been avail
able since 1910. Recently two
groups of aviators, one in France and
one jn the United States, have start
ed plans to capture it. Mr. Orteig
formally extented the time for the
prize award until June 1, 1030.
Should a non-stop trans-Atlantic
flight begin in New York, officials of
the National Aeronautic Association
would have charge of the official in
spection. The Aero Club of France
would handle the inspection at Pnris.
Carl F. Schory, official timer of
the National Aeronautic Association,
explains that in non-stop flights,
such ns the Orteig prize con
templates, the gasoline tanks of the
aircraft are sealed to prevent re
tilling. Officials are also able to keep
tab on the movements of a nonstop
aircraft through use of a sealed
barograph. This instrument, which
looks like a small bix, contains a
recording pen which works in har

Admission Prices For Local

Although the Cabarrus County Fair

Admission prices this year will be:
During day. 50 cents for adults and
25 cents for children; at night, 23

Last year adults had to pay 75
cents to get in the ground, it was
pointed out by Dr. Spencer, and re
gardless of tfie fact that the fireworks,

this year than ever before, admission
prices are reduced.
“We planned last year to make the
admission price 50 cents, this year,”
Dr. Spencer said, “but it' has been
reported to me that in some manner it
has been circulated in the county that
the price was to be raised to a dollar.
There is nothing to such reports, of
course, for we have never contemplat

to delve thoroughly into the broad
question of the nation's air policies,
which das been the subject of bitter
controversy since the Shennndonh dis
The announcement of the personnel
of the board to investigate the Shenan
doah crash came on the heels of a
denouncement of navy critics by Rear
Admiral Moffett, chief of the navy's
bureau of aeronautics.
Those who will serve with Admiral
Jones in conducting the inquiry are:
Capt. Frank H. Clark; aide to the as- ,
sistant secretary; Capt. Louis B. Me- (
Bride, of the navy construction corps;
Commander John H. Towers, lieuten- .
ant-commander Ralph C. Pennoyer,
Captain Paul Foley, director of the
experimental laboratory at Bellevue,

At the time Mr. Wilbur was an

made plans to have> Col. Wm. Mitch
ell, chief figure in the whole contro
versy, available as an expert witness
for the President's commission when
that body begins its inquiry.
It was explained at the War De
partment that neither disciplinary
proceedings which have been initiat-
years, Dr. Spencer and other fair of
ficials are ready to offer attractions
this year that will surpass in every
way attractions offered in the past.
“We strive each year to offer a fair
bigger and better than the oqe the
yqgr before,” Dr. Spencer continued,
“and to carry out this policy we have
spared no expense. The Cabarrus
County Fair has attained an enviable
reputation throughout the South and
we are determined to offer attrac
tions and exhibits in keeping with
such a reputation. However, we are
determined also, to offer these attrac
tions at the least possible cost to the
public, and for that reason agreed last
year to cut the price of admission to
50 cents this year.”
Officials of the fair feel reasonably
certain they have the best interest of
the public in their efforts to give
this county a fair surpassed by none
in the South, and they are rather «nr
! prised that any one would circulate
reports calculated to hurt attendance
■ at the fair.
Those perrons who have been wor
ried because of the “dollar admission
i rumors” can rest assured there is
■ nothing tq them and that for 50 cents
. they can get admission to a fair that
is certain to eclipse anything yet

for renomination by State Senator 8
James J. Walker. Tammany designee.
wro has had the active support of

between Governor Smith and W. R.
Hearst for control of the democratic
party in the state with a view to
presidential politics in 1928. lie

from Albany to stump for Walker.
Exchanges between the governor and

The mayor has ignored demands of
Walker that he say i whether he will

that Tammany which supporte Hy

responsible as Hylan for eight years
Wnll Street betting odds are from
