Netlted because two of his country men had been permltted to By over Richmond before Alfred J. Molsant had declared the risk to the public too great, Rene Barrler, a Frenclt avlator, got permlsslon yesterday to cut a high clrcle above the clty and performed a feat whlch was far more thrllllng than the rest. Leavlng the Fair Grounds just as the second day's program at the avlation meet was about to close, he polnted the nose of his Bleriot monoplane toward Acca, turned graee fully back dlrcclly over the grand stand. and then shot stralght toward the Hermitage golf Unks. his motor "throhbing perfeetly as he sped onward ?t more than a mlle-a-mlnute speed.

When the throbblng ot h's englne was heard above the dln of tho street, somebody picked up the word that an aeroplano was near and that mlghty throng of Thanksgiving marchers on Broad halted, while thousands of faces were turned toward the dull gray ?kies. The multitude saw the machine tnoving northward at an altltude of more than 2,00n feet, and then watched untll it faded from view. Barrler's cross-clty fl'ght was not on the program. After Garros and fc'imon had raced into town .on Wod nesday, Mr. Molsant gave orders to his Frenchmcn that lt had to stop. U was a trlfle too dangerous. But Bar? rler was not pleased. 11 is French blood bolled at the dlscrimination.
