In an interview, Judge Prowse
said yesterday: "At last 1 have
been successful in perfecting a "fly
ing machine" of the heavier-than-air
type, taking months and months of
patient work and thousands of dol
lars, and my hope is to make Hop
kmaville the center of aviation
.throughout ibis section of the coun
try. It Is my purpose, provided il
can "get the ttuppbrt of Hopkinaville
and Christian county, to immediate
ly begin the construction of a passen
ger type machine, for the purpose of
taking up student? in Aviation and
teaching them the secret of flying in
perfect safety, establishing a school
in aerornantica of which Hopkinsville
or any other city could point to with
pride. There is no reason why
Hopkinsville should not have an
aeroplane factory, and aeromatical
school. Our city has every necessary
element required and there are
thousands of people who want to be
taught the operation of the flying
machine today, as they were the
automobile a few years ago. There
is a wonderful future in store for
those who fly now."
Tne Exhibition being given this
week is a "Benefit" and every dollar
received will be invested in a Hop
kinsville industry for the help and
benefit of a Hopkinsville boy.
