I 1 Ralph Johnstone Sets New Altitude Recorl
! Ralph Johnstone Goes Two
Hundred Feet Higher Than
1 SAILS-INTO SNOWSTORM 1
AND SUFFERS SEVERELY
Hubert Latham I)oes Flip-Flops
in the Air, but Descends
NEW XORK. Oct. 25. The American
altitude record tliat J. Armstrong- Drexel
so proudly brought down out of tlio
, clouds yesterday afternoon In his Blerlot
monoplane was snatched from his grasp
by Ralph Johnstone today In a headless
Wright climber.' Drexel reached 7105
feet, but Johnstone topped him. today by
IDS foot, with a new mark of 7303 feet.
He came down chilled to the bone and
Ills goggles rimmed with frost. For half
un hour ho battled with a snowstorm
above the clouds, seeking still higher
levels. The undemonstrative Wilbur
Wright danced with Joy when he glanced
at the barograph.
"It's better than 2000 meters." he
cried. He kpew then that -the fourth
day of the international aviation meet at
Belmont Parkhad brought him his share
Huburt Latham. In an Antoinette
monoplane, did aerial flip-flaps tinder the
edge of a., nasty-looking storm cloud .half
a mile up In the air, He righted and
then shot- to earth in one steep, rush-
1 Ing swoop. The edges of a treo punc
tured one of his wing surfaces on the
K descent, but he landed with only minor
! Injuries to his machine and none to hlm-
r When the meet began, -with the hourly
competition for distance - that regularly
opens the day's programme, the bang
ing of the gong found Grahame-Whlto
out for his dally promenade around the
track. Iatham was his only competi
tor, and when, engine trouble forced
White's Farmnn biplane off ' the field It
looked as if Latham. In his Fly Fish
Antoinette, would have the event to. him
self. But White saw that the scantiest
score whatever would bring him second
place and Jate in the hour he tinkered
" up' his colicky engine to last two rounds
npd took down the easiest $100 of the'
I In Altitude Trial,
i Hoxsey and Johnstone both went up
f for altitude. Johnstone had entered for
j distance, but Just- before he left the
, ground Wilbur Wright Instructed him to
I go after altitude. In the -haste-of-the.
moment they both forgot that he was
i "without a barograph, and when he camo
rj uwn from the upper levels he had noth-
ing to show how high he had gone and.
1 was left unplaced. Count de Lesaeps
It pointed ip much later than the two
Wright pupils, but caught them. both,
and, soaring above them, brought down
,the prize for the first hour.
The second hourly dlstnncc event was
a pursuit race. Grahame-Whltc tried his
Farman again, found it unreliable, took
it off the field for rcpalra and. during
his absence, saw the lead ho gained by
his watchful promptness steadily cut
down bv speedier rivals, who had started
later. "l-Iopelcss of getting his Farman
into running order again. White took out
his fast 'Blerlot monoplane, the first time
he has been seen in It here for competi
tion. He gained steadily on McCurdy. in
a dirties biplane, but the latter finished
first with a lap to the good. It turned
out, however, that McCurdy had fouled
two pylons in trying to cut the corners
fine, and the forfeit cost him first place.
A Thrilling Experience.
In the meantime. Hoxsey and John
stone hud gone up for altitude again, ac
companied by Latham in his Antoinette.
The Antoinette began to enper like a
buck and wing dancer. The history of
the Antoinette, however, is Latham's his
tory. He boasts that he has broken every
part of It at InaBt twelve times. Once
ho fell 1C00 feet, perfectly helpless, but
his planes parachuted and saved him.
Tho crowd thought Latham was only do
ing somersaults to pleaso them, but ho
was not: he was In real peril. He had
started to descend when he felt the rain
and was caught In a wind flaw. Tossed
to one side and the other, first up and
then down, he tilled hl3 planes and shot
down In a swoop. . , ,
In a matter of seconds, the rush of his
descent had eaten up tho half-mile bo
twecn him and earth and he was hidden
behind a clump of trees. Ely. in a Cur
tlss biplane, went out to reconnoitre and
found Latham with nothing worse than
a punctured wing and a broken skid. .
In Express Train Time.
The last event of the day was full of
uncertainty and suspense. With very
little preliminary maneuvering, t. .
Iladloy of the British team flashed over
the line In a Blerlot and vanished into
tlie east before It was known to any ex
cept the Judges that he had started in
the cross-country run of twenty miles to
a captive balloon, ten miles east of tho
course, and return. In less than seven
minutes word came back that he had
rounded the balloon. His time seemed
Incredible, and it was agreed that there
must be a difference between the chro
nometer at the Judges' stand and the
observers' watch at the balloon. While
tho matter was still being argued. Radley
was back again. He had done the twerj
tv miles In express-train speed at better
than -sixty miles an hour. Ills exact
time was 13:48 2-5.
Molssant. In a passenger-carrying
Bloriot, started almost as Radley finished
and was shortly followed by McCurdy in
a Curtlss biplane and Drexel In a Blerlot,
at Intervals of approximately one min
ute. All three of them got lost, and
Drexel and McCurdy never finished.
Much interest attached to the first ap
pearance today of the new Wright racer,
which was uncratcd last nicht and as
sembled this morning. With Orvlllo
Wright in the pilot's chair. It was given
two trvouts. Garrls of the French team
caught Its time for one morning trial at
l:lf. and in the afternoon trial at 1:2S.
These unofficial figures are to be com
pared with those given out by the judges
today for the fastest lap made yesterday
by Aubrun In a Blerlot, 1:44.
"Women Take Sails.
A little bevy of adventuresome women
went up for the short flights during lh,c
day. Count do Lesscps took up four dur
ing the day, and Miss Eleanor Sears of
Boston made another trip with Grahamc
Whlte. at a height of about 150 . feet.
Allan Ryan, son of Thomas F. Ryan, and
chairman of the committee on arrange
ments, was another passenger in care of
"If you like it that much at a height
,of a few hundred feet." said Wilbur

WILL PROFIT BY DEFEAT
ADMINISTERED BY COLLEGE
Coach Bennion Puts Players
Through Course of Sprouts
The defeat -which the university foot
ball team received at the handB of Colo
rado college last Saturda' has had the
effect that so often follows defeat, that
of making tho men work harder than
they over did. The errors of laHt Satur
day's game have shown the university
pla'ers -where they arc weak, and the
work of this woek ' practice on tho
gridiron will be to put moro SDecd on
tho ends in gutting down the field for
the forward pass and learning to hang
onto tho ball instead of fumbling.
Tuesday afternoon, Coach Fred Ben
nion had the full squad of men out and
put them through a long, strenuous prac
tice. This afternoon a lighter practice
will be held, and on Thursday morning
Iho teani will start for Colorado, whero
they will meot the University of Colo
rado (Boulder) at Denver next Satur
day. Tho men will leavo homo with a
thorough determination to bring back
A rousing big send-off will be given
tho team Thursday morning. Tho big
coach "Utah" will be used to carry
the team to the depot from the univer
sity campus. The students themselves
will haul tho wagon, and with a great
long rope attached to tho rig, at least
500 students will help pull the wagon
to tho train. The faculty has co-operated
with the students in this affair, and
it is expected that there will be no
classes at 11 o'clock in order that tho
students may accompany tho team to
AH sorts of cheering and singing will
bo pulled off as tho wagon rolls through
town. At the depot a platform speech
will be niado by the leading members
of the team and tho university coach.
Coach Bennion will take sixteen players
on tho trip.
STRONG PLAYERS ON HIGH
The football aspect at the high school
Is not as bright as It could he, owing
to the eligibility rules. At present there
are five members of the squad who are
behind. The boys have until Thursday
to make up tho work. Some of the
boys are lacking but a. single hour, but
this Is fatal. With these boys out of
tho game it will be almost an Impossi
bility to retain the state championship.
All the Ogden players are reported eli
gible and the Junction city team will
be down Saturday atfernoon In full
strength to win.
The, practice Tuesday afternoon was
not as lively as was expected, owing
to the absence of the ineligible players,
who were busy studying for examina
tions Thursday. Coach Bru3so has
shifted the lineup consdcrably. Snow
and Slddoway are In the back field and
had considerable trouble Tuesday, as the
position Is entirely new to them. Kass
will be at tackle Instead of at guard and
Margetts at end.
The officials for the Saturday gamo
will be selected from Tobln of Chicago,
Baum of Illinois, Santschl and Ellis of
West Point, Elliot of the Fifteenth in
fantry, Harkcr of the University of Utah,
Hedges, Blsgood of Syracuse. The like
ly men are Tobln, Santschl, Ellis, Hedges
The first part of the afternoon Tues
day was spent In scrimmage work
against the senior class team. The
seniors wore to have played tho Colle
giate Institute team, but the game was
called off. The seniors held tho regu
lars to five touchdowns.

ANOTHER OPERATION TO
BE PERFORMED TODAY
Surgeons Say Patient Is in
Good Condition to With
More than 200 fans enjoyed an ex
cellent programme at the Jack Hume
benefit entertainment given under tho
auspices of tho local lodge of Owls In
tho Jennings block Tuesday evening. Tho
programme, which was of a varied na
ture, appeared to suit tho tastes of all.
Wlllard Mack, In his monologue, pleased
immensely. Mr. Mack was at his be3t
and told many amusing stories of tho
southland. Robinson and Johnson, with
mandolin and banjo, got a big hand, us
did Mr. Miller, who rendered several se
lections on tho piano.
One of tho things that marred the en
tertainment of the evening was tho fact
that a number -of thoso who were sup
posed to take part did not put in an ap
pearance. "Peanuts" Sinclair and sparr
ing partner, Jimmy Reagan and partner
and Wlllard Bean were to have given
exhibitions. The programme was de
layed In the hopes that those who had
promised to take part would show up,
but when It was learned that Bean, Sin
clair and Reagan had fallen down, and
It looked as though they had purposely
sidestepped the occasion, C. E. White,
tho master of ceremonies, did tho best
he could, and that "best" pleased the
large crowd. Jack Price was present,
but he did not go on, as scheduled.
As the result of the benefit a tidy
sum was realized, which will go toward
paying tho blcyclo rider's expenses while
In the hospital.
Hume, Salt Lake's well known bicy
cle rider who was thought to be en
tirely out of danger, suffered a relapse
and will submit to another operation this
(Wednesday) morning. Hume was hurt
whllo riding in the bicycle races last
summer and, although his Injury was
not thought to be serious at first, ho
later became paralyzed and almost lost
his life. He finally rallied and seemed
to be getting well. Until three days
ago he had been gaining in strength
and the headaches, from which he had
suffered so Intensely at first, had en
tirely ceased. Then he began to be
troubled again and was removed to the
Holy Cross hospital Tuesday afternoon.
The doctors say that today's operation
is to be performed under much more fa
vorable conditions than the other, owing
to Hume's stronger condition. The
chances are much In his favor.
