As soon as the plane landed news

at the northeast corner and taxied
to the center of the field. There the
plane became the center ot a surging,
shouting, wildly excited mass of spec

of the plane and the daring flier.

Maughan s plane then was lost to
view in a slight mist which overhung
the field, although its shadow could
be discerned intermittently. Un his

blotted it from sight completely, and
the din burst forth with renewed vigor
when he unexpectedly soared down
