Flight to Frederick Is Planned Today
[[line]]
A flight to Frederick, Md., this afternoon is contemplated by Lieutenant Kirtland and Lieutenant Milling. The weather conditions seem perfect, except for an up-and-down air current which has put in an appearance. If the flight is made, the army men probably will leave about 3:30 o'clock, and hope to fly to Frederick and return by dark. 

The flight doubtlessly will be a surprise to the National Guardsmen at Frederick, as they are not expecting another visit from the College Park aviators today. The new Burgess-Wright machine will be used.

Transcription Notes:
It appears "Burgess-Wright" is the full name of the aircraft and the dash would be included even if there wasn't a line break.
