From this point of view the tragic out come must to some extent neutralize the splendid efforts which have been made by Governor Ilartness, Fred l. Harris of Iirattleloro and others to interest the public and to promote aviation in Ver mont. Nor can it be said that the accident was due to negligence, incompetence or any single cause the elimination of which would promise entire safety in the fu ture. Pilot Hughes is a veteran who flew in France, and this was his first accident since he engaged in civil avia tion. The plane had broken a strut in landing the day before, but the broken part had been replaced, and there has been no suggestion that the machine was not sound and in good running order; the company which made and operated it has carried 1! 1,000 passengers with no previous loss of life. The weather was not ideal, yet the aviators complained only of a certain '"bur.ipiness." ; if avia tion were under rigid, government inspec tion, such as is sometimes urged for the prevention of accidents, it , is doubtful whether flying would have been prohib ited, though cautionary Hags would cer tainly have been hoisted if there were such a service for aviators as the weather bureau gives to mariners. The 'accident, so far as the available facts show, was due to a combination of causes, none of which perhaps can be entirely eliminated, jet all of which de serve consideration. First- of all there is the live wire into which the machine was thrown when a wing-tip brushed a tree; quite possibly but for this there would have been no loss of life. This, taken with the shocking disaster to the ltoma from 'a similar cause, shows that power wires are a grave menace to navi gation of the air. Until they are all put underground this danger must remain, but so far as possible flying fields should be located where the air is free from such obstructions. It may be said also, without criticism of the man whose fine public spirit made the Urattleboro Hying field possible, that the location and laying out of the grounds left a somewhat inadequate mar gin of safety in taking off and alighting. Hughes was a skilled veteran, but if aviation is to flourish provision must be made for novices, with leeway for floun dering a little if the take-off is not quite lucky. It is said a hummock in th" lield. on which the machine had bumped the day befure and which had made trou ble since so angered the pilot that o?i the fatal flight he took off in the opposite di rection, and getting into an air pocket over the river failed, in spite of dextrous manipulation, to rise rapidly enough to clear the trees. No one of these contributory causes might in itself have caused an accident, and none of them need be stressed. If there is a moral to be drawn it is that I rafety be secured. At best an aviator will have to make some emergency land ing with a certain risk; there is the more reason for giving him plenty of elbow room on the flying field, with no risk of running into trees or wires before getting his height. AVhat the government can do to pro mote safety is still an open tiuestion. In spection of machines has been proposed, but inspection has to be made before each flight, and the pilot and his mechanician are the best inspectors. The question of weather is difficult, be cause perfect day are few aj?d at other times opinions differ in regard to safety. It is not to be expected that aviators will wait for a perfect day, but there must be many days on which the public should be warned of the risk. I ossibly in com mercial flying there may be a temptation to carry passengers in dangerously fluky weather, but this element had no place in the Urattleboro tragedy. There is no getting away from the fact that flying is still a risk ; such accidents must be taken as casualties in the struggle for the con quest of the air and all that can be done is to try to learn their lessons and thus by degrees to reduce the loss of life. It may be hoped that-Urattleboro and Ver mont will not be discouraged by this stunning misfortune. Springfield liepub-lican.
