From All Parts of
World in Reunion
More Than 800, Including
Several Famous Aces,
Pay Tribute to Dead and
Live Battles Over Again
America's fighting airmen lived over
again last night their battles in the
shell-rent skies of Europe.
For them it was the first reunion
since the Germans gave up the
struggle a year ago. More than 1 600
including some of the most foremost
air fighters in the world came from all
parts of the world to attend a dinner
at the Hotel Commodore, which marked
the first of their annual reunions.
Three hundred of these were unable
to obtain seats at the tables, the com?
mittee not having expected more than
1,000 to attend.
At the outset a silent tribute was
paid to those bravo comrades of the
air who made the greatest sacrifico
in chivalrous combat,
Laurence L. Driggs, president of the
American Flying Club, under tho aus?
pices of which the dinner was given,
presided. Tho dinner scarcely had
started when a commotion was caused
by William B. Stout, one of the grea
est fun-makers of the club. Ho en?
tered the grand ball room of the hotel,
dressed as a messenger boy, and quick?
ly got into an altercation with a waiter.
As soon as the situation was
straightened out, the members began
poking fun at all things aeronautically
political by reading telegrams alleged
lo have been sent by prominent states?
Among the famous aviators present
were Major Paul Baer, commander of
an American squadron with the Polish
legion, an ace who formerly was with
the famous Lafayette Escadrille, and
later with the United States air serv?
ice; Ted Parsons, one of tho original
members of that famous escadrille,
and a flight commander in Guynemei s
famous squadron; Brigadier General,
William Mitchell, commander of tho
United States air service in France;
Colonel H. E. Hartney, Cole J. Young?
er, Captain Field Kindley, and Douglas
Campbell, the first American trained
In addition to the aces were many
famous pilots, including Charley Will
ard, the first Curtiss flyer; Frank
Coffin, ?Clifffford 13. Harmon and John
Guy G?patrick. All the pilots who
started from the Eastern terminus of
the transcontinental air race also were
present, including Lieutenant Belvin
W. Maynard, the "flying parson," the
first to finish the race.
