FLYING MEET WILL BE SENSATIONAL
--
RADLEY AND WISEMEN WILL DO NOVEL STUNTS
--
FLIGHTS ARE GUARANTEED BY THE BIRDMEN
--
The only thing that can keep James Radley from flying at the San Jose Driving Park next Saturday and Sunday is a rain or wind storm. Otherwise he will treat the local aerial enthusiasts with a sample of flying that will be sensational and novel. Radley was her eyesterday in conference with representatives of the Santa Clara Valley Aero Club and stated that the atmospheric conditions of this vicinity seem ideal for flying.
Fred J. Wiseman has completed all arrangements to ship his biplane to this city. Wiseman was recently in the amateur class, but his sensational exploits in San Francisco, where he won most every prize worth going after in the novice section, have graduated him into a full-fledged professional.
Arrangements have been completed for the policing of the course. Three companies of militia will keep the track clear for the automobile and motorcycle races and the birdmen will not be interfered with. Special police and detectives will also be in attendance to assure the crowd complete protection from pickpockets and other light-fingered gentry.
The weather bureau predicts fair conditions for Sunday, without rain, and if their conclusions are correct San Jose will see a meet that will be full of sensational feats.
