I'rashear of Pittsursh, scientist and intimate friend of the inventor, in If licatir.ff recently the Janclcy lab- ratory of aeronautics at the Car ?Kie Institute of Technology. "I-inuIey invented thn heavier than ;'ir machine." declared Dr. Urashear. He recalled the fact that Prof. Lariley'3 drath was due v tli? fall i r t the Potomac river of an air 1 lane with which h" was experi menting. "More than "2 yearn ao," Dr. Hiashear said. "I heard a scientist it ad a paper on 'The Soaring P.irds : Florida' before a gathering of scientists. This man 1 d tone down there and hidden himLdf in the trees fastening hits of fohage to him, and w-itched those lare birds. Then he )e;an to experiment with machines that would fly. He was ridiculed hy that assemblage of sci entists all except one Samuel Pierpont Langley. Afterward he told nie it was a strange topic to he dis eased In a scientific meetinp. hut hat it had niad;? such an impression '.n him that he began to take an in terest in flyintr. Thaw Aided Financially. "He came over to my little work shop on the hill one day and asked me to help him in hi experiments. Then he went to William Thaw who had previously assisted him. and ob tained financial help. Now in those days, whoexer talked much about flying received a great deal of abuse ard ridicule. But this T,1 not affect my friend Lanley To -ie was set in his purpose. "He first used th Pinaud flying machine, a toy that was propelled hy a rubber band bein wound up find thn released. He Faid if that toy could fly he did not see wh larger machines, made on the same principle, couldn't be made "to do it too! ""Then his efforts were crowned with a measure of success. He sent up a machine over the Potomac river near Washington. One of the saddest half hours I ever spent was in the Smithsonian institute In Washington, some years apo when Iangley told me of one experiment that failed. Tt wasn't failure, but he thought it was. Unkind words ,1 roke his heart. He died a broken hearted man. "X have known nearly all the pio re?fs in aviation, and when I s the work you are doinpr here I feel that it Is a preat honor to be her o see the fruition of the work of my pood friend IinKley and see h'ni honored by this institute.
