Pearson's Flight to the Grand Canyon in Arizona Lieuteant Alexander Pear son, Air Service, in making his flight to the Grand Canyon of urizona, had another interesting- experience following his at tempt to negotiate the New York to San Francisco transcon tinental flight. It will be re called that on this journey, while flying from El Paso to San . Antonio on February 10th, his plane developed motor trou ble and he was forced to come down in a canyon south of the Rio Grande river. His plane was subsequently recovered by yon. the near vicinity of the canyon7 as it is on the railroad, J 5 miles airline from the Grand Canyon and it would cost but little to put it in condition. The near ness to the railroad is an im portant item, as all supplies. even water, must be shipped in, and the roads are none too good. Passengers for or from Grand Canyon could be car ried to and from Anita on a railroad or an auto in one-half hour at all seasons of the year.; Very good emergency fields exist all the way between Wil liams and Anita and to the east as far as the San Francisco Mts. and to the west for 30 miles between Anita and Grand Can The following will be of in terest to the many friends of Mrs. Hardy nee Murphy who for several years was the head of the drygoods department at Babbitts. PERSONAL AND LOCAL an expedition sent into Mexico for that purpose ; a new engine was installed in the plane and it was flown back to the Del Rio Airdrome. The flight over and in the Canyon was made between 9:00 and 10:00 A. M. on June On June 5th Lieut. Pearson, in company with the - Chief Ranger of the Grand Canyon National Park, went down in the Canyon to look over the plateau. The plateau is 3,750 feet above sea level and while generally level, it is rough or 10th. Lieut. Pearson states full of small rolls and hollows. that at the beginning of this flight there was a slight east wind blowing and that it was very warm, the air being quite calm except for "heat swells". It was just as smooth over and in the Canyon as outside except for a strip along each wall, where there was a very notice able rough region between one Lieut. .Pearson states that a landing on any part of this plat eau would almost certainly re sult in a crash, though not ne cessarily fatal. Two way land ing fields of 400 or 500 yards in length by 75 yards in width could be built on this plateau at a number of places at a cost of about $1,000 each, as the fourth and one-half mile wide, I surface of the plateau is of de undoubtedly caused by strong!, composed rock and could be uprising currents of air heated by the canyon walls. Lieut. easily worked. No other level of the canyon is at all suitable The marriage of Mrs. Anna Fettv Murphy and Orville A. Hardy was solemnized at the Sacred Heart church at 7:30 a. m. J uly 4tn.

This was prob ably due to the fact that if there were such a downward current, its downward velocity would be not more than that of the rising current at the canyon wall. This conclusion was ar rived at by assuming that there was no longitudinal or up or down stream displacement of air in the Canyon and that the region of uprising air extended one-half mile back from the canyon walls. This would give On June 6th Lieut. Pearson started on his return trip to Nogales and arrived there on June 8th. On the following day he flew to Williams, Ariz., which he used as a base be cause of the close proximity of the field to town and the avail-, ability of gas and oil of good auality. It was also the closest field to Grand Canyon that could be used, as no funds were available to prepare fields clos er. On June 11th, the day fol lowing Lieut.
