SAFETY PRIZE IS-OFFERED
Statistics In France Show That of
517 Pilots Licensed 33 Haw
Been Killed As Result Tests
Are Xow Serere.
PARIS. July 10. (Special.) An In
teresting sketch was given to the
Chamber of Deputies by Colonel
Hlrschauer, chief of the Aviation De
partment of the Army, describing the
efforts being made by the government
to render this branch of the service
more efficient and less dangerous. M.
Eorel had given some striking statis
tics as to the frequency of accidents,
stating that out of 517 pilots licensed
In 1910, 33 had been killed, or 6.38
per cent, and out of 1417 licensed In
1911, 104 were dead, equal to 7.34 per
rent. If the number of pilots regularly
flying were taken as 500 the mortality
rose to nearly 20 per cent.
It was in answer to these figures
principally that Colonel Hlrschauer
made his declarations. He said that
during the second six months of 1911
there had been nine fatal accidents
among 120 pilots and pupils, who had
covered ISO.000 miles. During the first
six months of 1912 there was the same
mortality for 250 pilots, who had flown
more than twice the distance. Conse
quently the number of fatal accidents
must be considered to have decreased
by one-half. Even this, however, was
much too heavy, and nowadays every
machine In course of construction was
examined by a technical expert com
mission, which verified every compon
ent part before it was used and after
the machine was delivered.
Many other details were given of
the minute care taken to Insure the
stability and perfection of the ma
chine, and besides a small ground and
factory for testing speed and dynamic
force at Vlncennes. a very large labora
tory was to be established, enabling
trials to be made over distances 1200
to 200 yards. No machine is now taken
out without having been first thor
oughly overhauled by Its pilot officer
and his mechanician, and every week
the head of the district holds a general
inspection of all the machines. Any
signs of wear are noted, and repairs
are immediately carried out. It Is par
tially true that slightly worn machines
and motors are given to pupils, but j
that Is because for long flights the
most perfect motors are required.
whereas for instruction purposes in an
aerodrome less powerful and reliable
ones may serve. The danger of sud
denlv coming to earth Is much less
serious there than at haphazard in any
sort of country.
The pilots are sometimes wrongly
accused of nervousness and lack of ex
perlence. but. as a matter of fact any
candidate who during instruction Is
found to be wanting In coolness Is
sent back to bis regiment. This is not
considered as implying any blame, but
a mere physical disability for that par
ticular work. The medical examination
for heart, lungs and sight is very
strict, and as for experience the maneu
vers and daily exercises speak for
Coionel Hlrschauer proceeded to de
scribe what was being done to adapt
automatic stabilizators, and a contri
vance which is now fitted on all ma
chines showing when the speed exceeds
or falls below the normal or safe limit.
The War Ministry had Just arranged
with the League 'for the Safety of
Aviators to offer a prize of 380.000 for
an Invention to obviate present dan
gers, which would only be awarded
after thorough tests on ordinary full
size machines. The help of the Acad
emy of Medicine had also been called
In to determine the maximum speed
at which living creatures can be
thrown to earth without Injury, and
when Its opinion had been given a
series of experiments would be made
to avoid the too frequently fatal shocks
Amid much applause Colonel Hirsch
tuer stated that he had Just registered
the 1800th application for admission to
the flying corps, and It was often with
tears In their eyes that young officers
rntreated to be employed In this
branch. He remarked on the value of
youth, and on the significant fact that
among the great army of airmen the
very young ones never had accidents.
He was just about to accept eight new
pupils, none of whom was yet 20 years

Twelve Athletes to Race to Top of
Mount Baker Over Ice.
BELLINGHAM, Wash.. July 23.
Some of the crack long-distance run
ners of the United States and Canada
will participate in the Mount Baker
Marathon here tomorrow. Entries for
the Marathon are now closed, and
among the runners are: Jimmy Fita
gerald, of Calgary', who represented
Canada in the Olympic games in Lon
don in 1908 ami who has defeated Do-
rando. St. Ives. Hayos, Soldier King
and others; Paul Westerlund. winner
of the Mount Wilson Marathon this
year: Peter George, a Greek, who won
the Pasadena Marathon this year,
ami Victor Norman, who won the 40-
mile race at Nome last year. Eight
local runners are entered in the event.
The 12 runners wil leave the Cham
ber of Commerce in this city, seven of
them going by rail to Glacier and five by
automobile to Deming. From these two
points the actual race begins. The
Glacier runners will cover 11 miles of
mountain trail to the Enow, and then
four miles to the peak of Mount Baiter,
returning by the same route. The
Deming runners will cover 14 miles of
the trail and about four miles of snow
in reaching the summit. The one that
returns to the Chamber of Commerce
rons first will be declared the win
The Glacier runners must cover 30
miles of trail and the Deming runners
36 miles. The difference In distance is
balanced by the different methods of
reaching the mountain trails, less tlm
being required to reach the Deming
trail by automobile. Last year the run
from Belllngham to the top of the
mountain and return was made in 1
hours and 37 minutes.

Twenty-nine women were listed as
entries for the title in their division of
the tennis association, and 26 of them
were scheduled to play today, the other
three having drawn byes. May Sutton,
Carrie B. Neeley, Myriam Steever, Mrs.
Ayers Boal and Edith Hoyt were gen
erally regarded as almost certain vic
tors, and some predicted that the first
two would meet in the finals.
Wet courts held back the play for
nearly an hour. Miss Sutton had the
easy half of the drawing, the best
player to be pitted against her being
Miss Mary Browne, whom she probably
will play in the third round.

LOS ANGELES, CaL. July 23. (Spe

within a week, said Hen Berry Just
before starting for San Francisco this
morning. "And then, if we don't have
any bad luck, the Angels are going to
rout the Oaklands out of second place.
In fact, with the Seals on our staff
this week, and Vernon and Oakland
tangling up north, I am ready to bet
real money that we will be in second
place before another Sunday rolls
With Boles once more behind the
bat, there is no telling where the
Angels will land, if they keep going
in the way they have been traveling
here of late. Dillon will be in the
East two weeks and Berry also went
up to San Francisco for a few days,
but with Ivan Howard at the helm
everything should run smoothly. Ivan
Is a good leader and he is anxious to
make good while "Cap" and Berry are
away. Consequently, he says, the
Angels are going after the Seals from
the drop of the hat, and will not let up
until next Sunday night.

The son of Joe Patchen always was
best in the big race, which is classed
as the 2:13 pace. Away in front In
each of the three heats, he led from
wire to wire, never faltering and never
in danger. When Chimes Hal. who
followed him closely in each heat, came
too close, Fleming gave the handsome
bay the word and he pulled away.
Behind the two leaders the next three
horses fought it out, the real contest
being for third and fourth money.
Chatty Direct took the .2:10 trot in
two straight heats. Gordon Todd led
into the stretch, but the mare drove
him off his .feet when the dash for
the wire started. Seven horses in this
heat were closely bunched almost all
the way around. The final heat never
was in doubt. Chatty Direct took the
