FIRST TIME OUR FORCES USED AN AEROPLANE III
- WAS APRIL 25, HIHETEEH-FOURTEEN "
(By William G. Shepherd, United Press Correspondent)
Vera Cruz, Mexico, May 15. (By
mall to Xew York) Here's a school
room scene twenty-five years from
Teacher Why is April 25, 1914,
famous in American history?
Up goes the hands of every boy,
Teacher Willie, you may answer.
Willie Its the day on which an
aeroplane was first used in an Am
Sammy, unable to keep silent
I know more about it than that. It
happened at Vera Cruz, Mexico, and
it almost scared the Mexicans to
death. Even the cows and horses
ran away from it and the people
thought it was a terrible animal and
hid in their houses.
Jimmy, interrupting I know who
flew it, his name was Pat Bollinger.
Teacher Xo; Lieutenant Patrick
X. L. Bolinger, of Charleston, South
Carolina not Pat. ,
Willie-j-Thafs it. And before he
flew in an aeroplane he commanded
a sub-marine and made a target rec
ord with a 12-inch gun from the
battleship South Carolina. He had
light blue eyes and came from one of
the best families in the South, and
could dance as well as he eould fly j
and all his friends called him Pat, !
and he never got married, because so
many girls liked him that he didn't
know which one to propose to.
Sammy There were two men in
the aeroplane, Bolinger flew it, but
Dick Saufley rode beside him and
made a chart of all the territory
around Vera Cruz showing where
bridges were burned, tracks torn up
and wiere some Mexican " soldiers
that they flew over were throwing up
Teacher His name wasn't Dick.
His title was Lieutenant Richard C.
Saufley of 'Kentucky.
It is a notable fact that the first
American soldiers to use the aero
plane in real warfare were Southern
ers. Class Adjourned.
These school boys will have been
talking of an event that delighted
American refugees in Vera Cruz.
The first flight of the navy aeroplane
over Vera Cruz, followed by two
hours, the arrival of the machine on
the battleship Mississippi, Lieutenant
Commander Henry C. Mustin, of the
Pensacola (Florida) navy aviation
station, put his mechanicians to
work on two Curtis hydroplanes in
the hangar on the deck of the battle
ship and by the time the fleet arrived
off Vera Cruz the flying machines
were ready for immediate use. They
were lowered over the side of the
ship by cranes and they 6cudded
across the harbor to the beach under
their own power.
Within a short time Bolinger and
Saufley were in the air above the
ships and circling over the town. The
aeroplane had a tremendous effect
on the natives of Vera Cruz. Sharp
shooting from houses, which had oc
curred every evening since the occu
pation, ceased immediately, as the
rumor went abroad among the Mex
icans that the aviators would drop a
bomb on any house from which
sharpshooting occurred. In the
evening the same two aviators made
excursions far out into the country
returning with maps which indicated
to Admiral Fletcher the exact po
sition of the enemy, showing the
condition of the narrow and broad
gauge railroad tracks and bridges.
Admiral Fletcher highly compli
mented the two aviators for the
work and ordered the preparation
of maps from the charts which Sau
fley nad drawn in the air. Saufley's
charts will probably find a place in
one of the army or navy collections
in the Washington Museum.
