to Tournament park,
Plying at a height of about 5,000
feet, Rodgors hovered over the city
for a few minutes, then circled In a
wide spiral and volplaned down. Ills
landing was a signal for a rush, and
Rodgers literally was mobbed. After
ward the aviator declared his ribs
surely would be black and blue.
Rodgers started on the last dash
j of his flight from Flanning, Cal., a
little town out in the desert, where
his arrival bad interrupted the only
diversion of the year, the funeral
dance of the Mojave Indians.
Taking the air at noon, Rodgers
ascended gracefully In the face of a
20-mile wind until he had reached
an altitude of 400 feet. Then be set
his course directly west and sparked
his motor up to a 30-mile gait.

"Well, one thing is certain, you
