Is Aviator Tillinghast Hoaxing the Nation? (Continued From Page One.) terns which Is making him a for tune. He patented it and manu factures it at a good-sized factory here. In all his previous inven tions and work he has had no se crets. Why does he shelter his aeroplane so cunningly? . -aM- The one remarkable feature about the machine is the way it keeps itself right side up in any kind of wind. It has two giant "feelers" like an insect's anten nae. These are of rigid frames of steel, 35 feet long, and at the end of each Is a box kite. No mat ter how the wind blows, these kites right themselves and the machine to which they are at tached. They can be raised or lowered. When there Is no op posing wind, they are lifted to an angle of 45 degrees. "If I am taking night flights over Boston and New England that's my business," said. Tilling hast. "I will not say that I am or that I am not. I have gone faster than 120 miles an hour. I can go faster again. I have had this machine perfected long enough to take more than 150 flights. And where some . of those flights took me will sur prise a lot of people when I get ready to talk." '. One of the wonderful features of the machine is Its car. Bleriot and Latham have their seats above the rigid spread of wings. Tillinghast sits below his plane, In a little cubbyhole protected by an automobile wind shield. In side is his wonderful engine. He has made application to patent it, he says. It is lighter than that of j the Wright brothers and far more powerful. It generates enough electricity for his front searchlight' and a red taillight which will serve to warn aviators of-the fu ture, who may be on his trail, of the peril of collision. ■;'.,' That his claims are well-found ed—well, you don't know what to believe. There is an airship. That's sure. Thousands have seen it. Here in New England . they believe in Tillinghast. *, JUDGE ill SWORN IN 1 . r.
