be held on August 29, when both the

Hyattsvllle is the largest town in
Southern Maryland, where Lee Is spe

he can easily carry Southern and West

The Republicans have not definitely
agreed upon a candidate for governor,

not be a contest In their party for the

ATWOOD'S MOTHER PROUD
OF HIS FLYING LAURELS
White-haired Woman of Past Fifty, -with Tone of Quiet

A gentle white-haired woman of past

Is the mother of Harry N. Atwood, the
younir aviator, who yesterday afternoon
flew into the White House grounds and
received the Washington Aero Club
medal from the hands of President Taft.
At tho Wlllard Hotel last night to a re
porter for The Washington Herald, Mrs.
Atwood simply and without even a
pardonable tinge of arrogance, told how
It felt to be the mother of the man who
was honored by the President for a flight
unprecedented in history.

piloted his Farman into Executive ave

leaf off the trees. Atwood had prom
ised to do more than that, nothing less
than to sail and glide into that small
patch of meadow in the center of the
rear grounds of tho White House.
The wind added complexities to the
situation, and it was easy to see the
Bostonlan's nerve was being put to the
severest test it had yet encountered.
Hesitant, he flew back and forth, sur

he was to land, and took as sure and

AcUng Secretary f "War, Introduced
Atwood to the President In these words:
"Mr. President. Mr. Atwood is a gradu
ate of the Massachusetts Institute of
Technology, and the recent performances
which he has conducted has put him
close to the front with older aeronauts.
He has made a trip of 600 miles, flying
from Boston to New Tork, from New
York to AtlanUo City, and from Atlantlo
City to Washington. It is a very re
markable exhibition for a young man of
Taft Presents Medal. ,
In presenting the gold medal of the
Washington Aero Club, President Taft
made the following brief remarks:
Tho Aero Club of Washington has Im
posed upon me the pleasant duty of giv
ing you an evidence of their appreciation
of the voyage which you have taken
from Boston to Washington. They wel
come every new light In the development
of aeronautics, and they are glad, as I
am Informed, to emphasize their apr
preclaUon of such a trip as that you have
taken. Owing to your youth, and the
short time that you have given to this
method of locomotion, they have every
hope that you will lead further In the
wonderful feats that are to be performed
It trlves me great pleasure to present
to you this medal. 1 hope It will be only
one of a great many that will come to
you In the future, and that they will
come with as little Injury ana as utue ap
parent danger aa .you exhibited in flying
down, hero to the White House grounos.
' Atwood responded with a few brief
words of thanks, told how he had en
joyed la stay In Washington, and s&ld
he hoped to, co even Digger uungs do
fore he quit the flying game.
His machine hod been turned about
In the meantime, and Atwood resolved
to fly out of the grounds, although many
members of the Aero Club advised-him
the trick would be foolhardy". It was
at first thought the biplane would have
to T carted, outot tfee ground to the
every one has shown us nothing but
kindness. The newspapers have been
especially klud, and as far as we are
concerned we do not share the opinion
that seems to generally prevail of press
representaUves. In both Boston and In
New York the reporters called me up
and told me of the various stages of his
flight and showed the attention in many
other ways. The Washington newspaper
men have been no exception, and I
know (here Mrs. Atwood archly smiled)
you will prove no exception.
Gets Many Inducements.
"Mr. Atwood's father has been up with
him, also his sister, and perhaps I may
go myself at some time, although at
present I am undecided," went on Mrs.
Atwood. I wish you could see the
piles of letters and telegrams that boy
receives every day, offering Inducements
to him. It Is hard to choose from the
great number. As for myself, since I
have been In Washington I have re
ceived flowers and Invitations almost
moi than I can possibly .ccept. I felt
that I had no friends In Washington
when first I came, but In the short time
I have been here I feel that I have hun
dreds. "My son has gone to New York this
afternoon to decide what his course of
action In the future shall be. This Is
the hardest task of all selecting his
next place for a flight Our plans are
very indefinite, and will largely depend
upon the result of his New York trip.
Wherever he goes, I will accompany
him, and I have every reason to be
lieve he will continue covering himself
with glory. Is It not a proud event for
a mother as well as for the son?"
Simplicity seems to be the keynote
of Mrs. Atwood's every word, move, and
bearing. There is nothing of the af
fected, nothing of the overenthuslastlc,
only a glowing pride in her son and his
achievements. She speaks of him con
tinually as "my son," and has nothing
but kindness for every one.
She received The Washington Herald
reporter in the reception room of the
Wlllard with the query as to the pri
vacy of the place. Gorgeously dressed
women passed at Intervals, and by
some Mrs. Atwood was recognized. To
ward none, however, showed she the
least inclination to bask in the reflect
ed rays of her son's fame; only the true
spirit of enthusiasm for his achieve
ments was allowed to enter into her
White Lot but Atwood laughed at the
thought He would go out as he came

The engine roared and the forward

shook off the spell of terra flrma and
caught the air. At first it seemed it

White House roadway. To those who
remembered the grass-cutting days of
the old Wright machine at Fort Myer,
it seemed Impossible the aeroplane could

force In the comparatively short space
He Knew the Sloth.
But Atwood knew the Moth, and he
made his exit as cleverly as his com
ing. He skimmed above the trees, his
propeller blades creating panic among
the foliage, and made a bee line for
his Improvised hangar at Potomac
Park. He got there In a few minutes,
said "gcod-by" to a couple of mechan
icians, and Jumped Into an automobile
for his hotel, preparatory for his Jour
ney to New York.
His purpose In making the trip Is to
attend to some private business con
nected with aviation, and probably an
Important announcement will be made
when he returns to the city to-day.
The Moth will make the trip back to
College Park this afternoon, with At
wood at the helm. Whether he files
back to Now York from Washington
depends upon the outcome of his trip.
Atwood probably will stay In Wash
ington over Sunday, and there is a pos
sibility he will spend a week longer
here, "resting up." There Is no ques
tion he Is sadly In need of recuperation,
as no aviator can keep up his pace of
the last two weeks without a complete
nervous breakdown. Atwood, although
he Is loath to talk about It Is feeling
tho effects of the strain, and some of
his friends say they see Its manifesta
tions in the abruptness with which he
makes up his mind and the equal
abruptness with which he changes it.
With his mother, the blrdmon Is highly
pleased over his reception tn the city.

hands of President Taft yesterday, the
first official recognition ot his record
