By Jack R. Binns
Late of Dir Royal Air Form
The first great aeronautical exposi?
tion in history was officially opened at
Madison Square Garden and the 69th
Regiment Armory last night.
The. opening ceremony, an event of
military pomp and splendor, was per
formed by Brigadier General William
I.. Mitchell, chief of operations of the
United States army air service at the
front, recently returned from Prance.
Fully 10,000 people struggled to en^
ter the Garden the moment the doom
were opened. The jam became bo bad
police reserves from tho Easl Twenty
second Si reel station were senl to ra
si nie order. When the lines were
- finally formed tlwy extended cighi deep
clear around the Garden block.
As the genera! entered the hallway
of Madison Square (?arden the person
nel of Hazelhurst field aviation unit,
under command of Major Henry J.
! Miller, sprang to attention with true
! military precision.
Show Opened by General
Precede?! by two buglera the general
then entered tho exhibitionhall, where
' he was received by Prank TI. Russell,
vlco-president of tho Manufacturers'
. Aircraft Association. As the party
mounted the platform overlooking tho
: giant "All American" Martin bombing
j plane, the buglers blew the general of
. fleers' call of the United .states Army.
j Tho general then described aerial
fighting conditions at the front, which
added so much lustre to the standards
of the country's newest fighting arm.
"in the air fighting at the American
iront up to the time the armistice was
signed," said General Mitchell, "the
American aviation forces brought down
four and one-half times as many Ger?
man aeroplanes as, the enemy brought
down American machines.
"When the war ended the air service
of the United Slates army excelled
that of any other army in all branches
of aerial tactics."
Setting of Exhibit Unique
It was u fitting ceremony to mark
the opening of the most remarkable
exhibition ever placed on view. Around
the aider, of the world-famous exhibi?
tion hall there has been built a won
; derful scenic display, portraying to the
visitor the aviator's view of the coun?
try receding below bis fast-moving
i aerial carriage.
Across the ?*<? i 1 in?r O? the hnll n big

he said, which augured well for the
nation's future in the air.

The police officials of South Norwalk. !
Stamford and Darien, the three, towns
nearest Pratt Island, began a spirited
contest yesterday for the solution of
the Coppola mystery. State officials
are also engaging in tho rivalry, for

quiry early yesterday in South Nor
walk. Every one who has been men
tioned in connected with the disappear
anco was questioned.
Youthful relatives of young Coppola,
including several discharged soldiers
have joined the family in a systematic
search. Frank Coppola, who recent!
returned from France with a detach
ment of wounded soldiers, declared y< i
tcrday that the seaich will be co .
tinued until the boy is found, dead ?
"Charles was a good boy," said A i
