SARCASM FROM SKY
HITS TICKET DODGER
Latham, Soaring, Drops Pass to Auto
Owner Who Peeps at Fliers —
Charity Checks Cheek
\v. m. Garland, head of the commit
too in charge of the charity aviation
meet, received the surprise of his life
yesterday, when he was called on to
diagram the moaning of a sarcastic
note dropped to an automobile owner
Sunday by Hubert Latham from his
monoplane with the consent of the
committee.
The motorist wa.s merely one of
many who had taken possession of one
of thi 1 public highways near the course,
from which. Bitting in their cars, they
were able to watch the aerial maneu
vers tree of charge, The attention of
Mr. Garland and others of the com- \
mittee was called to their presence i
nearby. Quickly they derided to send i
a note, and Latham volunteered to de
liver it. The note was written on his
raid and read something like the fol
lowing:
"This aviation moot Is for the benefit
and interest of orphans ami sick chil
dren. However, tliis will servo to pass
you into the grounds."
Latham sailed out over the collection
of automobiles, and directing his course
pi) as to pass above one of the best
cars, dropped the note. The man In
the car j?ot out quickly and picked up
the n.>tc. Within a short time lie left
the Held iind the members of the com
mittee believed that he had hurried
away because the sarcasm in the note
had struck home.
11l SIXFSS MXX WAIT ON" TAHI,E
Mr. Qarland was surprised when the
man walked into his office yesterday
but only fur a moment.
"Here conies a contribution to the
conscience fund," he thought.
"It was a little 'ate when 1 pot this
note." said the man. "I want to know
it' I can't Ret two passes today on It?"
Mr. Unrland gazed at the visitor in
amazement. It seemed Impossible, lie
said later, that there could be a per
son so obtuse as not to see that the
note was a bit of sarcasm and nothing
more. Hut tho man had not seen It. I
However, ho saw it before the con
versation ended.
Members of the committee do not
hesitate to express themselves forcibly
regarding people well enough oft to
own the latest models In automobiles,
but so penurious that they watch the
Itirdmen from a vacant field rather
than pay the small sum asked for ad
mission—especially since every cent in
excess of the actual expenses of the
meet will be devoted to charity.
Yesterday the number of automobile
owners gathered In the adjacent roads
to get a free show was still larger.
Others stopped their cars in Oompton
avenue find watched the nights from
that point, blockading the road to such
an extent that many persons who
wanted to get through into the space
reserved on the li( Id for automobiles
could not do so.
