Guard Who Shepherds Cars
Of Newspapermen to Retire
Walter O. St. Clair, 70, will retire
at the end of this year as guard at
the Commerce Department, and
newspaper reporters are hoping he
will pass on to his successor his
method of parking about 25 auto
mobiles in 12 parking space*.
Mr. St. Clair has served at the
Commerce Department auto court
for 15 years. Since there were al
ways more reporters coming Into
the court than there were spaces
for cars, he developed his system.
Mr. St. Clair always told them to
"go ahead” and would then park
the extra cars in chance openings
on Fifteenth street, and move them
from time to time to avoid police
tickets.
Mr. St. Clair, who lives at 4905
Seventh street N.W., is a native of
the District and a veteran of the
Spanish-American War. He is a
widower and has two sons, Walter,
jr., in the Commerce Department,
and Elmore F., in the Agriculture
Department.
He will retire from the Public
Buildings Administration, Federal
Works Agency, which assigned him
to the auto court job.

Wright Brothers' Plane Is Due
To Arrive in District Saturday
The Wright brothers’ famed air
plane Kitty Hawk Is scheduled to
arrive In Washington Saturday
from England to occupy a perma
nent place of honor at the Smith
sonian Institution.
The first plane to carry a man Is
due to arrive on the liner Maure
tania at New York next Friday. A
Navy truck will take the crated
Kitty Hawk to the Brooklyn Navy
Yard for an overnight stay before
proceeding to Washington the fol
lowing day.
Paul E. Garber, curator of the
National Air Museum, an agency of
the Smithsonian, is directing plans
for placing the Wright plane in the
North hall of the institution’s Arts
and Industries Building.
Mr. Garber plans to drive to New
York to accompany the airplane
here. The truck bearing the plane
will be marked to Inform spectators
of the contents of the crate, arid will
be provided with police escorts
through the larger cities.
The Wright brothers’ plane, which
they first flew 40 years ago at Kitty
Hawk, N. C., will be hung In the
prominent place previously occupied
by "The Spirit of St. Louis,’’ In
which Charles E. Lindbergh made
his non-stop flight from New York
to Paris In 1927.
The Lindbergh plane, one of the
Smithsonian’s most popular attrac
tions, has been moved to another
location to make room for the Kitty
Hawk.
The Wright brothers’ 600-pound
assembly of wood, cloth and wire
will be accepted formally the mom
lng of December 17. anniversary of
the first flight. For the last 30
years It has been on display at the
Science Museum In London, to which
the late Orville Wright sent It as a
result of a dispute with the Smith
sonian.
Smithsonian officials, however,
later acknowledged the error made
by previous officers of the Institution
in labeling the Langley machine the
first airplane capable of carrying a
man in flight.
As a result, Mr. Wright asked. In
a letter found after his death, that
the Kitty Hawk be brought to the
Smithsonian.
