Aviators Refuse to Take
Out the Mail
Postal Officials Refuse
to Accede to De
mand. NEW YORK, July 25. A strike of
. i rial mail pilots began today, no
::viator appearing to take out the plane
with Chicago mall, due to start for
Dellefonte Pa , at 5 a. m.
I The etrjke. the first of its kind in
I the country, follows the refusal of the
postoffice department to reinstate two
. pilots for refusing to take out planes
Tuesday on account of the fog. Post
j office cffieials at Belmont Park, Long
'Island, the landing field for planes,
ttated that they h.-ui received instruc
tions to give out no information con
cernlng the aviators' action.
A protest against the discharge of
'two pilots, Leon Smith and Hamilton
Lee, was sent to Second Assistant
Postmaster General Praeger Wednes
day giving him 21 hours to make
I known his decision. Mr Prae--' m
! his reply, which was received by the
aviators last night, announced that the
i orders discharging the two iin-n had
uot been revoked.
The aviators state that they had
complained on several occasions that
the planes supplied them were poorly
equipped for flying, even in good
weather, because of their hieh speed.
They said they desired lighter and
slower machines as in misty or foggy
weather the visibility was so poor as
tc make hiu-h speed dangerous Th
men declared that since July 15 no less
than fifteen accidents have occurred,
in which ten planes were demolished
and two aviators killed. Aviators of
mail planes at Chicago, Cleveland aud
Dellefonte will join in the strike, ac
cording to local aviators Twenty pi
lots at Belmont Park, all civilian em
ployes of the postoffice department,
are affected by the strike action.
Aviators Not on Job.

peared here to take the airplane with

uled to leave at 7 a in. Preparations
had been made to leave with the mail
lor New York, scheduled to start at
il o'clock. None of the aviators who
were to take the mail could be lo
cated. CLEVELAND. July 25 -The airplane

to leave here at 9:30 a. m. was de

"I won't go up in loggy weather
with a big machine which travels 100
miles an hour The Mualler 'ships
are all right because they are slower.
In foggy weather it is often necessary
to fly from 150 to 250 feet above th e
ground and a high compression Lib
erty motor is apt to get hot at a low
.iltltude, causing a forced landing. If
1 am traveling over a largo city such
flying Is dangerous to people below as
well as to me."
WASHINGTON, July 25 While the
Washington-New York air mail plane
left on time today despite the strike
of pilots, the postoffice department
had no official reports at noon to
show that any other planes were in
