"JUET 3, 1918. NIGH FLIGHTSARE IT. PAYS TO i DEAL AT . 4F mlnnnnnnnnna! LIEUT. MATTHEW H. O'BRIEN, Washington boy, who flew over city f in an army airplane. T don't want to fir over the old town, because when I (ret back to Texas the bunch there will kid the Ufa out of me and say that I tried to attract undue attention and excite pcbllcity in my home town." This la what Lieut. Matthew H. O'Brien, the first Washington boy to fir ever the city, told his mother, Mrs. Matthew E. O'Brien, of 202 A street southeast, after she had re peatedly pleaded with him to make a fSsht. Finally the mother became so Insistent that the boy relented from his determination to set no publicity saere, but not until the father, Matthew E. O'Brien, an attorney, had given the boy, who is an embryo attorney, a lesson In argumentation. Eventual ly the future ace's sweetheart had to tret his consent to make the flight. O'Brien went to the aviation field late yesterday and got an aeroplane. He- started the engine and flew to a Ugh altitude. ' "I Just did It for the family." the boy modestly said when he returned , to the ground. Matthew H. O'Brien was born in Bridgeport, Conn., twenty-two years ago. When he was twelve years old his parents moved to Washington. She aviator was graduated from Cen tral High School at the age of fif teen, after which he attended Wes leyan University at Middletown, Conn., where he received a degree in the law department with the class of 2S18. While at Wesleyan O'Brien gained fame as one of the best all-around athletes ln New England. -He made Walter, Camp's All America football team in 1915, and nas manager of the baseball team in his senior year. But the greatest distinction O'Brien gained while in college was his promulgation of Commons Clubs in other universities and colleges. Wes leyan had the first Commons Club, and it was organized by Woodrow Wilson during the period of the President's professorship at the In stitution. Mr. Wilson organized, the club, because, at that time, he did not believe in college fraternities. O'Brien advocated the organization of these clubs at other institutions because he believed they could be made more influential among col lege men in general and uould foster a spirit of good fellowship in a greater degree than fraternities, be cause there is no snobbish element in the Commons Clubs After having been graduated at Wesleyan, Lieutenant O'Brien attend ed the first officers' training school at Plattsburg He refused a commis sion to return to Washington and complete his law studies at George Washington Universit) When the United States declared war on Germany, O'Brien Immediate ly volunteered for air service. He got his first instruction In aeronautics at Ohio State UnUerslty at Columbus, Ohio. He went from there to Day ton. Ohio, where hereceKed Intensle training under the personal direction of Wilbur Wright at Wright field Later he was transferred to Elling ton Field. Houston. Texas for the past three months the lieutenant has been an aviation Instructor in night flights. "Night flights are the aviator's de light," he told a Times reporter to day "To become proficient it is necessary to study astronom. for we are guided by the stars. Lieutenant Olirlen is to make an other flight Frida and as soon as be has allshted will return to Texas. GERMANS MARCHING ON MURMAN RAILWAY AMSTERDAM.
