^has been aroused as to which member
'will accept, since neither has as'yet
experienced the. sensation _of riding

If any friends ot customers of the
store wish to go up with Lieutenant
Salisbury, it can be arranged for
them, but it will be necessary that
they pay the regular price. The
Curtis company, which owns the
hydroplane that Salisbury will drive,
would not consent to the Minneapolis
manufacturers having full,use of the
plane. during the trip, and insisted
that, with the exception of one free

anyone going up niust pay the regu

or $20 for two*. jThose who would
like to take a trip with the aviator
are asked to hand in their names to
Huffman & O'Lear/ at then* earliest
convenience, since Lieutenant Salis
bury will have only a few hours stop
here. Upon arrival he will then
make the flights [in the order in
which the names are handed in.-
He will leave Minneapolis bn
