"Has the aeroplane a future so far
as practicability is concerned?" he
was aqked.
“Yes.” he replied, "it will have a fu
ture to u very great extent. I think
the aeroplane will be safer than the
automobile or other methods of con
veyance. It will he so easy and so
quick. Mv greatest pause in flight haa
been ten seconds, starting on an as

flight have a special instinct which we
will never have, hut we can improve
our methods by using some of the
methods of the bird.
"I fly generally fifteen feet above
the ground. I con fly higher, but have
never made a flight as high as your
skyscrapers, as you call them, but 1
hope to some day. I think the time is
not far distant when we shall see
