Daring Frenchman Demon
strates His Remarkable -Control
Los Angeles, Cal., Jan. 11. Defying1
the court injunction secured by the
Wright Bros., Louis Paulhan, the
French aviator, sailed in the air here
yesterday, as he said he would do when
he came here. The little frenchman
was the sensation of the daj' at Avia
tion park. He threw the 20,000 spec
tators Into a frenzy by a spectacular
flight in a Farmau biplane.
Curtiss had given an exhibition in a
new and untried machine in which later
CWfford Harmon, the millionaire ama
teur, made some short flights; Charles
E. Willard in the Curtiss No. 1 had made
a successful flight and several times
Roy Knabenshue and Lincoln Beachy
had ascended In two small dirigibles
and maneuvered their craft, but noth- l
ing to thrill the crowd occurred until
Paulhan swept in.
Beachy and Knabenshue were piloting
their dirigibles around tlie course when
the daring Frenchman appeared sud
denly out of a gulley hidden from the
view of the grandstand, circled the
course three times, went out across
country, came back over the grand
stand and alighted in the center of the
In two later flights he gave a re
markable exhibition of control over his
machine, gracefully making sharp
turns, now dipping almost to the
ground to scatter in frightened flight a"
group of officials gathered ou the
field; again skimming the grandstand
only a few feet above the" heads of
people, ascending and finally -approaching
from the rear the tent that houses
his aeroplane, just clearingtthe top and
alighting within 100 feet of the en
trance. Paulhan was given a demonstration
such as Is seldom witnessed at a public
gathering in this country. Men shouted
themselves hoarse while -women ap
plauded and. waved handkerchiefs.
Paulhan, elated by the fur'ofe he had
(created, danced gallj' into his tent. The
sky was overcast with clouds and' there
was a suspicion of dampness in tlje at
mosphere. The wind was from the
west, blowing strongly an unfavor
