No action was taken yesterday by tbe
board of .governors of the Aero Club
of America concerning the expenditure
of a fund of llTl.Oll.K collected by the
club to provide for an aerial reserve
force. Criticism has been voiced re
cently over the handling- of this fund by
a committee of which Alan R. Hawley
was chairman and Henry Woodhouse
and Henry A. Wl Wood member.
Col. Jefferson De Mont Thompson,
president of the club, who vis elected
last November, said that both he and
vral members of the board of gov
ernors were not familiar with the facts,
since the fund was co!lted In I'll and

"The matter ha not been brought to
the attention of th fard of govjnor."
he ald. "We had at the meeting yes
terday, which waa called for another
purpose, one of the most representative
bodies of gentlemen to be found In any
club. I think the character of the gov
ernors 1 well known. If the matter Is
brought to their attention you may de
pend upon It that tbey will go through
It with a fine tooth comb."
'"In view- of the publicity which has
been given to the administration of this
fund do you think the board of gov
ernors will consider the matter.".. he was
