FOURTH WORLD'S CONTEaT
Twice Before Single American En

Associated Press Dispatch.
Chicago, Sept, 7. America's third
International aviation .meet, which
opens Monday will establish a new
mark for America in the number of
aviators of intc-national fame en
tered. Chief of these are the pilots
of the foreign and American racers
who compete in the Gordon Bennett
world's championship aeroplane
race, the first event of the meet.
TUe meeting embraces daily mono
plane and biplane handicap races, a
scratch biplane and monoplane race
which is designed to give further
demonstration of the skill of the
Gordon Bennett drivers, and a "40
kilometer rare for all types, handi
capped. Other contests are bomb
and mail throwing, accuracy landln?
contests from heights of 1,000 fee!
without a motor and similar events
in which skill of the operator is
This is the fourth time aero
planes have been matched for the
world's championship, as typified by
thef 10,000 silver trophy given by
James Gordon Rennet t in 1908 to br
contended for annually by - licenced
pilots of the Federation Aeronau
Trophy Here Twice.
Twice before a sinaie American
entrant has driven his aeroplane
Ahead of his competitors and brought
the silver trophy to America. Glenn
H. Curtiss was the first winner, at
Ilheims, France. Aug. 28, 1909. His
biplane finished the 12.4 mile race
in 15 minutes 50 seconds, or five
seconds ahead of the looked-for win
ner, Louis Bleriot's monoplane
There were five starters but only
four of the flyers were able to cover
the distance, which then was con
sidered an almost imposible journey
for an aeroplane.
In New York, on the Belmonl
Park aerodome, the second contest
was held. The course had been
lengthened to 100 kilometers, (62.
14 miles) and Claude Graham .White
England's best' known airman, won
in 71 minutes four seconds, in the
first 100-horse power Bleriot mono
plane built. Alfred Lablane of
(France led in the raeo in a similar
machine, up to the last lap of the
field, when he ran out, of gasoline
and in landing, crashed into a tele
graph, pole and smashed his aero
plane. Graham White's victory took the
trophy to England, where it was
contested for in 1911 on the Isle or
Sheppy at. Eastchurch, July 1.
(Charles Terres Weymann, sole
American entrant, again, went up
in a 100 horse power Nieuport mono
plane and captured the trophy. Mis
time for the 100 kilometers was 81
minutes 36 seconds, a speed of 78
miles an hour, then a world's rec
ord. Lablane, again after the world
championship, had to content him
self with second, being two minutes
slower than Weymann.
Rsihd Determines Winner.
Speed alone determines the win
ner, (here being no restriction, on
the construction of the aeroplane.
Because of the high speeds attained,
few aviators have cared to enter,
and in the three events held pre
viously, a total of thirteen entrants
only appear on the lists.
This year the race has been
lengthened . to 2d0 kilometers (124
miles), and the course was laid out
as an elipso of 4.14 miles, requiring
thirty laps lo complete the races. In
the French elimination trials Jules
Vcdrtnes made a speed of 106 miles
nn hour which established expect
ance as to what speed would be made
by the choice machines of the. six
nations competing America, Eng
land, France, Holland, Belgium and
Switzerland. Franco designated
Jules Vedrines and Maurice Prevost,
pilots r,t Ueperdusslon monoplanes
and Andre Frey, who'drlves an Han-
riot monoplane, as Its representa
tives.' England had named Claude
Orahame "White, Gustave Hamel and
George Dybtt, but It was jiot certain
until the last minute Just who would
make the actual flights.

Only Two Women Yet to Make
Speeches for Democratic
ONE A SOCIETY LEADER
The Other Is Mainly Interested in
Abolishment of Child
New York, Sept. 17,--For the
first time in the history of the
country professional women are to
be real factors in the political situa
tion this fall. The latest addition
to the ranks of women's political ac
tivities is the 'recently organized
"Professional Women's Wilson and
Marshall League," an organization
national in its scope, with head
quarters in the Fifth Avenue build
ing, New York.
The organization was founded by
Miss Gillette Kershaw, the actress
who did so much for the Women's
Suffrage- cause while touring the
country two years ago as the leading
woman in "The Country Boy." Last
year George Branson-Howard wrote
for her the suffrage play "Snobs," in
which she essayed the leading role.
Miss Kershaw is also chairman of
the organization committee, which
is composed of ten women drafted
from the following professions: Two
law, two stage, two medical, two
m-wspaper, one representative from
the Child's Welfare association, and
one woman thoroughly familiar with
factory and shop conditions through
out the country where women and
children are employed.
This committee is in turn assisted
by an advisory board composed of
national committeemen from each
tate. Upon Miss Allyne E. Sheerer,
of Chicago, the national secretary,
has fallen the task of organization.
The New York headquarters under
her leadership has developed into a
political bee-hive in the past week. I
Miss Kershaw is the first woman
of the league to take the stump. She
and Mrs. Borden Harrlinan, the New
York society leader, are in fact the
only two women who have thus far
addressed outdoor mass meetings on
behalf of the Wilson campaign. Mrs.
iiarriman lias spoken at several
arge meetings in New York, and on
Labor Day Miss Kershaw addressed
three thousand factory employees in
Philadelphia, where she opened her
new suffrage play, "Whom Does
Helen Belong To?"
During her two weeks' engaga-
ment in Philadelphia she was dis
tributing literature and buttons at
her various meetings and devoting
her specific arguments to the indus
trial legislation as It effects women
and children, at the tariff as it ef
fects the home.
In an interview given out after
her meeting at Philadelphia yester
day Miss Kershaw said, "Irrespective
of party affiliations, I believe women
should turn heaven- and earth in an
effort to influence the vote of the
man who has the interests of the
workingwoman and child at heart,
and when a man already in office has
done so much to further legislation
to thsi end, I believe he deserves the
support of women everywhere. H is
a crime and a disgrace to this nation
to allow great corporations to fat
ten on the labor of poor, halfstarved
children. The stage to my mind i.'
the most flagrant example of this
corporate greed, and I speak from
experience. I played my first juven
ile part when I was seven years old,
and was carted back and forth all
over the map in the next seven
years. I had no childhood. When
I grew up I vowed that if I could
ever help a cause that would abolish
child labor I would consider that my
great achievement in life.
"I have watched Governor Wil
son's record very closely. He has
made good, and all we ask is that
intelligent women of the country
read this record and 'the hand that
rocks the cradle' will bring to bear
more Influence than the combined ef
forts of all tho political spell-binders
in the country.
"I am not a suffragette, and the
women in .our organization are not
working for the ballot just now
That will come later. 1 have in
fluenced audiences all my life, but
the only audience we want the aver
age woman to Influence In this cam
