In Hammondsport many aviators ar I oc Li r i u fr that if the "America" Roes successfully across the Atlantic: it will be more due to Iorss'i Hallett. the American me chanic, than to Porte. the Knulish pilot. Hallett. thoy say, is an in comparable mechanic and can make a Curtis hydroplane run almost without a pilot. The criti cism made of Porte is that he is too cumbersome in his movements and often lets the American machine lte control when a quick movement would save her equilibrium. Hallett and he art- said to differ a ureat deal in their ideas of how the "America." should be handled, but it is said that they have decided to let each other fctick entirely to his own knitting HAMMONDS POUT.

"Von see I'm only the mechanic on the trip," explained Hallett to me as he stood beside the hangar of the gr.at. red-winced whale, the " Amer ica." on the chores of Lake Keuka. "And the mechanic merely tends to the machinery and steers part of the time." . j "Is that all!'' I said.

"You see," said George Hallett. showing his bright, white t.eeth again in one of his flashing, sudden smiles. "I know gas engines. They are like my own children to mo. "I've been learning their dispositions and don't you think gas engines don't have dispositions! well, ever since I worked on K. A . Scripps yacht, the Alexander Agassiz, out in San Diego harbor, the winter I w-as sixteen! "f had run away from my home in southern California and shipped on a coastwise steamer running to 'Frisco. On hoard I got interested in marine gas engines and began to take a correspondence course in them a little before I went on the Sc-ripps yacht as mechanic. "After this yacht was given to a California society for scientific work I met Glenn Curtiss. who was out in California testing his hydroplanes. He engaged me and I have been with him ever since as mechanic, demonstrating hydroaeroplanes to sportsmen, avia tors and .armies and all the while getting better acquainted with gas engines. "All that I want to see the 'Amer ica' do and do easily and often is to plane from the water with I'.OOO pounds, the load we must carry across. "I think she'll do that eventually with the new pontoons. Such a load has been lifted easily by pontoons on other machines, so why shouldn't we red tape, come in and 112 E. Jefferson P0W1 be able to build and operate effectively such pontoons on the 'America'? "In llight the 'America' has carried 1.700 pounds all she has been really able yet to lift surely from the watej- wonderfully and swiftly. We are sure she can earn' the required ton if she can prove that she can always lift that required ton from the waves into the air. "We have had the 'Ame ca,' you know, stay up with one engine dead long enough to know that she can travel over 500 miles, even if one of the two engines should go out of com mission so what have I to fear? "Bad navigation affords the only chance for danger, and I guess Lieut. Porte knows his job. We'll not waste any words, he and I, hut we'll just saw wood. We're out to win not in the required 72 hours, either but in 48 hours! Porte will urge his gear and I well, how I'll pet those gas engines:" INDIANA AND MICHIGAN BRIEFS GARY. Burglars locked Mrs. A.
