he got clear of the ground his left pro

Immediately he had made repairs he
went tny again, but the wind slewed
one of his planes and he came down a
second time.
The wind wae freshening, but Atwood
declared that he would make the flight
to Washington In spite of It, and at 1.10
he made another rocket-like ascent. He

of wind caught the machine and swept
It out toward the ocean. Seeing hie dan

Cspt. Carman shouted from the pilot
