(By Associated Press.) COLLEGE PARK, MD.. Oct. -9.? After breaking the world's record for flight ever a closed circuit a kilo? metre in distance. Wilbur Wiight to? day pr^-diced th.tl he could attain a speed of Co to "u miles an hour in an aeroplane rac r. He had just torn through the air in the government j aeroplane at a rate of approximately i 46 miles a hour, making a new record of .".8 3 ". seconds for 300 metres and return, including a turn. To reach the higher rat? ?f speed Hr. Wright said he would reduce the aize of biplanes in the government ma? chine and at the same time lighten their weight. For racing purposes he said he would be content with the "plant" in this aeroplane. Following the successful flights of <he forenoon, Mr. WrUht made two ascensions late in the afternoon. Once Ais engine seemed lazy and the aero? plane settled to the ground 200 feet ...ifram the starting point. On one of the afternoon flights. Lieutenant Lahm accompanied Mr. Wright. On the other Mr. Wright, alone, repeated t&e performance of the forenoon by start? ing oft rail without the aid of weights.

Wu Ting Fang and Mrs. Wu There. Having delved into most other American inventions. Minister Wu Ting Fang, of China, saw his first aeroplane flight loday and absorbed all the information obtainable from a rapid fire of questions directed at Mr. Wright and officers at the gov? ernment aeroplane shed. Mrs. Wu accompanied Mr. Wu to the Held, but , she did net asfe any questions. It was the engine that puzzled the minister. ' Wher-.f's the flre?" he inquired. He was told something about internal combustion engines. Can you fly to New York?" he aske-d IJeulenant Humphrey. "I probably could, out I would not try." replied he. A flight of the machine left the im pressi' n with Cue minister that it does net go high enough to be out of dan? ger in time of war. and that it made too much noise. Wants Perfected One in China. "Tnafa fine Mr. Wright." be ex? claimed, a* the aviator returned from a Bight. -When yon get it perfected won't you bring one over to China?"' For once the minister seemed to ap? preciate be nrght have been mere diplomatic, so he added. "Its all right now." The minister eaid he would feel sorry f' r anyone who might get sick la an aeroplane. That |aj to hi. as eert'oo that h ? is pr^of against sea elckness and would like to take a ride in an aeroplane himself. The task of instructing the ofnc'rs of Urn signal corps to manipulate the aeroplane will be crntinned neat week py Mr. Wright. BAD DAY FOR McLEAMB.
