bleut. IL. J. Maitland, piloting a sis
ter ship to that of Maughan, was sec
ond in the Pulitzer competition, Ilit
his honors in that respect were over
shadowed by the terrific speed he at

'For the 100 kilometer course' during

son of the marine corps, was forced 1
out of the race during the fourth lap t
by engine trouble. Sanderson plunged t
with his plane into lake St. Clair, t
over which a part of the' course ex
tended, but escaped unhurt. Capt. St.
Clair treet landed phis Verville-Sperry 1
between two trees a mile from 'Sel- t
fridge field. He was not hurt but a ii
wing was torn off the plane.
When he brought his plane to earth
Lieutenant iMaughan was so exhaust
ed that he leaned- against the ship for
geverai minutes until 'he rsevived. Maj. I
Gen. -Mason M. .Patrick, chief of the I
army air service, Rear Admiral W. A.
Moffatt, chief of the naval bureau of
-aeronautics, and Edwin Denby, secre
tary of the navy, rushed to him. Ma
jor General Patrick patted the lieuten
ant on the head and Secretary Denby
wds so overcome he burst into tears.
"All the time duling the race I was'
thinking about a telegram I had been
expecting, announcing the birth of a
child to Mrs. Mlaughan," the winning
airman said, when he was arble to talk.
"'I was lost four times in the haze and
was stunned more or less at each of
the 1-5' turns. My worst moments, how
ever, were at one turn when I lost
confidence and then became uncon
scious. On the straight away I came
too. Another trouble I had was with
my feet going, to sleeit."
The terrific speed told on Lieuten
ant Maitland. After the lap in which
he made 216.1 miles an hour, his air
pressure, feeding gasoline to his mo
tor 'broke down, and he was forced
to use an 'emergency hand pump.
.Throughout the last four lae s, with
his plane hurling through the air at a
speed in excess of 200 .miles an hour,
Maitland was Obliged to pump away,
first with one hand and then with the
'eher. When he iltnished behind
Maughan he was so exhausted that it
was necessary to take hinm to his
qiuarters before he could be revived.

members of the federated shlip crafts,
have settled the shop crafts' strike

all members of the organization over
the signature of B. I.M. Jewell, presi

Reply i g to pumerous requests for
an inter iretation of the Baltimore
plan, upon . which the strike leaders
claim tihe settlements have been made,
the circular states throe reasons ac
tuated the executives in asdepting the
agreement basis. It gives, first, a
split in' the Association of Railway
Executives-one group agreeable to
a settlement and the "other bent on
destroying these organizations;" sec
ond, willingness of the liberal group
to negotiate national agreements and
lay down a 'hasis for settlements on
other roads; third, that no justiflea
tion could be found for keeping 125,
000 men on strike who could return to
work and assist in financing those
wtho remained idle.
