If a breeze stirs in tho mean time tho lesson Is called off for tho day. In order to win n degree tlm aviator must bo ablo to turn circle in an ero pl.u., perform a series of figure oiplitf. land within M.1 fgot of n designated mark mid attain an altitude of the samedistnnee. Ilotl. Mis Quimby and MIssMnltuint easily met the' conditions, and tho former set up a record for acciirato landing with a tnonoplane. 'Uoth maintain that It Is nothing to brag about and that, any woman wltli n cool head could do tho same. Although Miss Scott was really tho i first woman In this country to take up aviation she does not hold a license, as her course of lessons has been somewhat Irregular. About n year ago she applied to (tleiiii H. Curtis, who was Inclined to ' think that Hying was n bad business for ' women, but after much persuasion he l accepted Miss Scott as a pupil. In n short i liinii hn decided it was too risky for a woniah and induced Miss Scott to give ii up. Iitor sho went to Dayton, Ohio, Hnd was a constant visitor nt tho Wright school, but tho WrightH would not teach a woman to fly. It was even said that they would not sell a woman 11 machine. Their own sister, Miss Katharine Wright, has taken only one ride, and she shares the opinion of her brothers that a woman's place Is on the ground, They havo per mitted Borne of their aviators to take up women as pasnengers occasionally. Miss Scott Anally returned to Now York and applied to Copt. Thomas S. Baldwin and wan taken an a pupil, Capt. Baldwin had watched tho work of Miss Quimby, who was a pupil of Andrrt Houpcrt, In structor In the Molsant school, and wAn satisfied that he was not running a risk. As Miss Scott hnd absorbed tho theories in the Curt ins school, it was not long before sho was flying about Long Inland and doing cross-country stunts. On one trip she ntayed up about fifteen minutes. Capt. Baldwin's method of teaching Is direct. He does not believe much in grass trimming. Ho gives a pupil a high 'powered machine and as noon ns tho I pupil learns tho controls ho Is permitted to make a straightaway. Ho next learns itomaketurns.aiidafterthat it is all smooth sailing if tho engino behaves properly and other troubles known tn aviation do not arise. Miss Scott is the only woman who has taken instructions in ouo of these high powered fliors. At tho other school a machine with only enough motlvo power to mako runs over tho ground Is used. By this process the pupil learns hin con trols and then ho Is allowed to use another machine for getting off the ground. Those three women fliers have made a flno record over their brother aviators in not having htd a real smanhup. Neither ? 1 ! r " ' y- ii ' . f t?f"; i!'vrS - ' .1 .

Htio short. MISS BLANCHE SCOTT MISS HARRIET QUIMBY. Miss Moisant nor Miss Scott has had n break of any kind, and Miss Quimby had her only aeclde.nt while she was making runs along the ground. On or her wheels struck a hut and tho damage only I amounted to about $10. ' , "We certainly are not examples of reck lessness," said Mis Quimby, who has witnessed many tumbles made by the men pupils. ' And Miss Moisant chipped in to say that 1 ' she was just a little proud of the fact that , sho was the Ust of s"Vpii pupils to enter tho school and, with the exception of Mls Quimby, th" first to graduate. Prof. Houpcrt, who at first discouraged women, now says lie is satisfied that n Hying machine is jut as safe if not safer in th" hands of a woman than of . man The men Iliers generally siill doubt woman's ability to rival them in record making. They don't believe women will ever hav the necessary courage for an altitude flight or will go in for spectacular i work. ! Both Miss Quimby nnd Miss MoisiRi i i h ay they exect to takt up cross-ct)"!i(,y flying nnd passenger carrying, liecauso they consider that the most practical. They di-npprove of acrobatic stunts. Miss Scott hopes to lie ablo to perform any kind of Munt known to aviation. Jteforo taking up flying sho was an auto mobile diivernnd about a year ago mad a dash from New York Jo San Francisco. At one time Mio demonstrated cars for n I firm. She conies from Rochester nnd is the daughter of a horseman. Miss Qyimby was born In California nnd is of Now Kngland ancestry. She Is an onlv child and makes her home with j her parents in this city. Mis Quimby was one of the first women to drive an automobile. Mis Moisant is a sister of the lato John 11. Moisant, who lost his life in an aeroplane accident at New Orleans last December. "In two years many women will bo flying." Miss Quimby says, "and a woman will bo ashamed to say that uhe is afraid to ride in a flying machine." Both Miss Quimby and Mis Moisant have adopted the knickerbocker cos- MISS MATILDA MOISANT.

In tho African dodger game a negro sticks his head through a hole in a net ting or canvas nnd lets people throw balls nt it. There aro lots of people in all parts of the country who think it is fun to throw things at n negro's head. It Is the negro's business to clod go tlm balls if he can nnd bo jolly about it. In tho African dip ball game tho negro is wholly protected by u net. Ho can't be hit at ail, but something clso can hap pen to him. Ho sits comfortably in a chair in plain vlow behind the netting. From the back of tho chair n mechanical attachment runs up to n disk just above tho edge of tho net over tho negro's head, tho disk being of the name diameter ns the open ing in the netting in tho old game.
