CORY DOESN'T THINK MUCH OF AVIATION
The atmosphere thickly populated by cylinder oil, monkey wrenches
and fragmems of" disintegrated idiot.
b By J. Campbell Cory,
The Famous Cartoonist.
It's a good many years since"L
first felt justified in fixing the title"
Sporting Expert after my mon
iker, and I've hail no trouble get
ting by in all classes as a double
distilled, post graduate regular
guy ever since until Ibumgeci
into this aviation brand of up-to-date
You can call aviating sport if
you like, but put bridge jumping
aW the gentle pastime of navirv
gating Niagara Falls in a nail keg
down as child's play in comparison.
I've been lamping the game
here in. Chicago for the past week
or sp and, believe me, if this is
sport, give me a nice cozy" little
corner in the violent ward of
some respectable- dotty, house
where I can make careful obser
vations of the real thing.
Here have the good citizens of
Chicago been cruising around for
a week in an atmosphere thickly
populated with, cylinder oil,
monkey wrenches and fragments
of disintegrated idiot, and getting
lame necks from looking up, and
black and blue spots and bad
names from bumping into each
