VCSUME XVI. US VECAS. CLARK COUNTY. NEVADA. S'TUROAV. NOVEMBER IV- 'BBS NUMBER'S
A DROP TOO liCH OF
Airplane Plunges to Ground
From Height of 75 Feet.—
Pilot Not Injured
The only real thrill experience by
Vegas as the result of the visit of
the airplanes on Thanksgiving, was
a mishap to the small exhibition
plane "Poison,” which left the ground
and reached a height of abmt 75
feet. Then the motor stopped and
Poison poked her nose into the ground
with considerable force, doing some
damage to the machine. Mr. C. O.
Prest, owner and pilot of the plane,
escaped with a slight shaking up.
There were some skeptics who
were sure that Poison would not fly.
The machine proved otherwise by
leaving the ground in nice shape.
The stoppage of the motor was caus
ed by the fact that castor oil used
for lubricating the rotary engine with
which the plarb is equipped, was
carelessly put in the gasoline tank.
Naturally, when the motor began to
call for gas, It got castor oil and
there was nothing further doing. The
damage to the plane consists of same
damage to the anding gear and
small damage to one of the wings.
The propellor was not broken.
Mr. Prest is now considering as to
whether he shajl repair Poison, or
use the motor and other parts In con
structing a small monoplane for ex
hibition flights. He is thinking seri
ously of doing the latter, building the
plane in Vegas.
Mr. C. O. Prest, who has establish
ed a reputation as one of the most
successful pilots in the country, in
voicing his impression of Las Vegas,
made the following statement:
“Las Vegas possesses remarkable
natural attributes to make It as good,
or even a better flying country than
“The cimate here is wonderful. The
air is good and storms are few and
well heralded before they break.
Then for miles and miles around the
country is flat and a anding, if neces
sary, could be made almost any place.
The altitude, of course, has some ef
fect on a ship, but not enough so
that it makes a great deal of differ
“We would like to see this aviation
proposition backed by every citizen
of Las Vegas and the surrounding
country. You have done a wonder
ful thing to have taken it this far,
but now is just the time to either
make It or break it.
“Bringing machines here is only a
question of permanently establishing
a field. If that is here the machines
"Commercially, the establishing of
a field here would benefit Las Vegas.
It will be only a matter of a short
time before Uncle Sam will have his
mall planes bound from Salt Lake to
Los Angeles, and then Las Vegas, if
it has a good field to offer, will no
doubt be put on the route.
“A plane here will also bring such
towns as Goodsprings, Searchlight,
Goldfield, Tonopah, Carson City, Re
no, St. George and Mo^pa Valley into
close communication with Las Vegas.
This would be a valuable business
PRISON POPULATION LOW;
WARDEN EXPECTS MORE
The population of Nevada’s peni-!
tentiary now is ninety-four convicts,
which is likely to be cut slightly by
the action of the present session of
the pardon board, but which undoubt
edly will be boosted to the century
mark by coming terms of court in
various counties, is he opinion of R.
B. Henrichs, warden of the prison,
who is spending Thanksgiving in Re-1
The present mark is not the lowest;
the prison has had. About a year ago
the number of inmates was eighty-six
which is the lowest number on rec
ord within recent years. The prison
population has enjoyed a steady de- j
cline since the prohibition law went
into effect.—Reno Gazette.

TEACHERS ARE GRANTED
A BONUS ON SALARIES
At a meeting of the Board of Trus
tees of the Las Vegas Grammar
Schools held November 23rd, a re
quest from the teachers that salaries
be advanced, was considered. The
reason for asking the raise were
summed up as: Increased rates for
travel to and from their homes. In
crease in room rents and increas in
costs of foodstuffs and clothing.
In view of the fact that contracts
are in effect with all teachers, the
board decided to gratn a bonus of 12
per cent on present salaries to be
paid to all teachers fullfllling their
contracts for the year’s work.

YOUR CHRISTMAS BUYING
Now that we are fast approaching
the Christmas season it is but fitting
to call the attention of Las Vegas
people to the advisability of making
it just as happy for those nearest
home as we possibly can. And in
this respect there are many ways of
shedding sunshine right around home
that a lot of people are unacquainted
Take the matter of the Christmas
present itself. Had you realized that
the Christmas gift bought right here
at home brings out more happiness
than the one purchased in a distant
city? The gift itself is just as good
if purchased here, and the one who
receives it will be just as well pleas
ed with it. But when it is bought
here at home the clerk who sold it
is made happy, and the merchant in
Whose store you purchased it—and
he is your neighbor—has additional
cause for wishing you and your fam
ily a merry Christmas.
From now on to Christmas this pa
per will contain announcements of
those merchants who are in position
to sell you Christmas goods that are
just as pretty, just as servicable and
lust as reasonably priced as you can
get elsewhere. If the thing you want
is not in stock they will quickly get
it for you. So why rush to some dis
tant city and buy that which you can
get at home, and hand your money to
someone you will never see again
and from whom you couldn’t get a
favor no matter how badly you might
need it? Think it over—and then
watch closely the columns of this pa
per. Watch them for the ads of your
neighbors—your friends—and read
those ads with profit to yourself.

Speaking of his trip, this being the
first time a plane has flown from the

"This is a wonderful country to
fly over, the air is so clear, and the
view so extensive. The coloring of
the mountains is ever changing and
has remarkable beauty and attraction
for the traveler. Then, because of
the numerous dry lake beds, a land

the trip was 7,000 feet.
“We met with a great reception at

Mr. Hausler and the progressive peo

“The Plane used was a Pacific
