Though most of its citizens havo surveyed Mother Earth In the past from no higher an elevation than It afforded by the cow puncher's saddle, they have taken an interest In the man-made things that fly that amounts to prac tically a craze. Not a few built aero- planes—things that came to grief a few 7eet~above terra firma; and those that havo not have eked the daring ones on which encouragement border- ing on recklessness. * San Antoniuns bad their first taste of aerial venture and honor when.one of , their citizens, Dr. Fielding, carried off a trophy for long distance Balling in a balloon three years ago. Shortly after that tno aeroplane made its general ap pearance, and within a abort tune everybody of a venturesome turn of mind was building kites. Prentica Newman was one of the first to enter the field. Like all of them he had something new to offer.- Ills machine was to keep its equilibrium under all conditions, but failed to do so., During a trial trip he had it towed by a power ful automobile. After ascending to a height of about 100 Met the rope har nessing the flyer to the, automobile broke and tho equilibrium aeroplane dashed to the ground, losing most of its identity and giving the operator and inventor a severe shaking up. Other kites built by the same man served merely to demonstrate his pugnacity— tho equilibrium feature refusing to materialize. ■ ; ■ . - ,"- .* - '•- The next inventor and aviator in the Held was J. \V. Oman. He entered the market with a contrivance that would have, delighted the heart of Jules Verne, . His was not a matter of sticks and canvass and high tension piano wile. : The apparatus was 11> be built of steel and aluminum, and obviously an swering navy and war department specifications it could rise from ground or water without the initial plunge forward of the ordinary variety, of aeroplane. Helicopters were to lift the thing bodily off the ground, carry it into tlie realms above and hold it there until the momentum of the whole would bo great enough to permit It to glide on the planes. The Oman enterprise went as far as the formation of a company and the subscription of i funds. Orders were placed with manufacturers for the ma terial needed, powerful motors were inspected, and so far the Oman air ship is still a thing of the future. Ac cording to all indications the motor powerful and light enough to make the. Oman airship, for airship it was,' pos sible has not been»found. Met Earth Too Soon ' A. lierff, Ir., was the next to try his hand at'aviation. He, too, was prompt ed in this by a desire to make the aeroplane a safe thing, something that would not detract from the value of a life - insurance policy. ; What is more, SUNDAY MORNING. FEBRUARY 13, 1910. l he succeeded in doing this to some ex tent. Hiß kite, having ■wings some what curved and other appurtenances, positively refused to come down side ways. Law of gravity, however, sent it on a forward-downward course that proved disastrous, for the reason that plane and earth met tflo soon. For all that, Mr. Herff's machine gave great promise. Among the latest inventors Is Oapt. A. W. P. McManus, V. S. A., retired. It may bo said that he, has made real progress toward the settling of the equilibrium problem. Using the prin ciple of gravity, he has shown his ma chine tc be a decided improvement upon others. Tlie weight carried is suspended from the plane frame by pivots, an arrangement Insuring per fect load distribution at all times and under all conditions. Tlie arrangement is extremely simple and effective, and leaves to the operator only tho choos ing of his course. Tho remarkable qualities of the McManus machine were definitely demonstrated a few days ago in a model towed behind an automobile. But San Antonio is getting a little tired of its home talent: Uncle Sam has been induced to establish an aerial navigation station at Fort Sam Hous ton, where after the 15th of this month daily performances will be given with a Wright aeroplane in charga of Lieut. V. D. Foulois of the signal corps. The big sensation, however, will be a great aviation meet on April 21 to 24. Among those who will fly then are. Glen 11. Curtis*, CnarlM H. Hamilton. Clive H. Wlllard, three other big men of the air and possibly Paulhan. Aeroplanes, dirigibles and statics will compete. Removal! Noah B^( Ark Removal Sale it's Up to Us to Move It |.

TIMES OFFICE GREATER CITY TO BE THEME OFFICIALS TO CLOSE ANNEXA TION CAMPAIGN Foregone Conclusion That Vote Will Be Fully Ten to One in Favor of Becoming Part of Los Angeles Mayor George Alexander v,ill be a speaker at tho mass meeting in Hogie hall, Vermont and Prospect avenues Wednesday evening, February 16, which will practically cinch the cam paign for tho annexation election to be held two days later. In addition to tho mayor of Greater Los Angeles, Leslie Hewitt, city at torney; Joseph Scott, president of the board of education; Lee C. Gates, Mott Flint, postmaster, and Willis Booth will deliver addresses. Thn mass meeting is for the benefit of East Hollywood and Ivanhoo citi zens, living in the districts proposed to tie taken in. The favorable attitude of these pub lic officials represents the sentiment of Los Angeles voter." and citizens of the outside section as well. That the elec tion will carry, practically ■■naninious ly, is a foregone conclusion, but public interest In the proposition of securing such a valuable asset as the square milo of splendidly improved suburb is very lively. The mass meeting to be held next Wednesday evening' will bring together all voters of the outside district in the common cause. To Recite Cold Facts It has been found that the usual in complete and incorrect reports, which invariably attend such a campaign, have reached interested dwellers in the outlaying districts. In order to put the true issue forcibly before theso citi zens and to outline to them the great advantages to be derived through an nexation, the meeting- has been called. The outside district has paid about $17,00 d into the county road fund dur ing the past three years. It has re ceived but few benefits in return. The protection of a municipal government is needed in this regard also. Worth $3,000,000 The valuation of property in the out side district is about $3,000,000. Im provements are being made rapidly. In order to guarantee the stability of the section police protection and fire pro tection are necessary. These can only be obtained through annexation. Officials of the Kast Hollywood Im provement association state that they would be glad to welcome Los Angeles citizens to the mass meeting but. as the capacity of Hogie hall is limited the prior rights of lvanhoo and other outside voters must he recognized. Real Estate and Classified RESENTS TALK OF SACRILEGE AUTHOR OF PASSION PLAY OFFERS EXPLANATION Rev. Father Cassian Recounts History of Religious Drama in Support of Coming Local Pro duction Since, William Stoermer mado public hia intentions lo produce the Passion play, written by Row Josaphat Kraus, O. F. M., of San Francisco, at the Tem pi' Auditorium tho week of March 14, there ha.s been Home discussion in cor* Uiin quarters as to the propriety of presenting the figure of the Christus on the stage. "It would bo sacrilegious," is the objection some have made. To tlioso who tak<- this vlow of tho matter, it will be interesting to learn how the- Franciscan fathers, who are responsible for the American produc- Tion, answer the criticism. Rev. Cas pian Tritz, pastor of St. Joseph's church, head of the Los Angeles branch of tho Franciscan order and sponsor of tho Passion lilay, was much surprised that there should be any disapproval of the undertaking. "What do poeplo mean when they say it is sacrilegious to put the character of Christ on tho stage? That which is sacrilegious abuses a thing. There <an bo no reproach in presenting: the sacred story of tli>> sunVrinprs rjf our Lord in dramatic form when it is givon in a reverent spirit. Only irreverence makes it blasphemous. If it is sacrilegious to portray his character in a play, it is sacrilegious to show him in moving pictures, paintings or in any form, or even to speak of him. "There would be no criticism of the Passion play if it were known how carefully we. guard* the sacred charac ter of Christ; the holiness of tho God head is ever kept uppermost in the minds of those who take part in the drama. It is because the Passion play is new to tho majority of the people of this country, and therefore so little understood, that objection is made to it." Presents Dramatic History For the benefit of those who are not familiar with the history of biblical plays Ren/. Father Cassian wrote tho following: The stage has ever been a strong fac tor in educating the people. The Greeks and Romans had their classical plays, by which they instilled love for liberty and country. Christianity mado iis>- i>r the itage to disseminate religious and moral Ideal. This gave origin to the so-called "Mysteries or Miracle Plays," in which events- of the Olfl and New Testaments were represented. To- m'invr wiUi lliosr; mystc-iy plays ap peared the so-caaled ■Moralities, or Moral Plays," in which sentiments and abstract ideas were represented by per sons. The opportunities to enjoy these plays were abundant, because they were given in every city and village. How completely tho people of each town were engaged in the presentation of these plays can be judged from the fact that tho various trade guilds then In existence took part in them. Much of their spare, time was spent in pre paring for these dramatic, perform ances, studying and practicing their parts and making everything ready for competition with thoir craftsmen. One might think that such dramas, constantly repeated, the subjects al ways the same and only the east vary ing from year to year, would become intolerably familiar and might, after a time, degenerate into tho merely contemptible. As a matter of fact, however, they did not. These old stories of religious heroes were written so close to tho heart of nature, involved so intimately all the problems of life, that they arc of undying interest. Their repetition was only from year to year, and this did not give opportunity for the familiarity which breeds contempt. It might be argued, too, that the; people themselves would scarcely be possessed of the histrionic talent neroß sary to make the plays effective. Ordinarily, however, as wo know from our modern city life, much less of the actor's art is needed than of interest in tho action, to secure the attrition of the audience. The actor is more born than made, in spite of the number of dramatic schools that are supposed to be turning out successful rivals of a Richard Mansfield. The American Passion Play, -written by Rev. Josaphat Kraus, O. F. M., of St. Boniface, San Francisco, is mod eled closely after the Oberammergau, but allusions in the latter that might be offensive to the Jewish peopki will 'not be found in this version. There are no caricatures of tho noble, mem- bers of this rate, but all are shown in tlio dignity that invested th#2m thoy W6V6 on t-arth.
