TAd.. yesterday that «25.000 had been subscribed, and that the committee was now prepared to lend this amount to the Aero Corporation to con duct the contest.

The distribution will be made on some graded scale to the winners and place men In the various events. This arrangement has met with general approval by all of the American aviators, and it i.« expected that an exceptionally large number of European contestants will be attracted by the unusual offer. Mr. Giiiespie. after making Ma report, said : "The results of this method of distribu tion of tht- prospective, profit? are chat t c aviators who contest successfully in the various events will receive by (ar - greatest portion of the funds collected, and they thus become mutually interested with the management in the success of the en terprise." In addition to this bonus offered the men who fly, there Is a fund approximating $40,- i 00Q to cover expenses of the aviators. By this action on the part of the sub- ' scribers' committee the first step in carry- , ing out this big enterprise has been com pleted, and the financial management of the meet will not again come to the front j until after the races are over. ; The practical work of managing the en- j terprlse, will now devolve on the committee : on arrangements, whose chairman, Allan A.
