WHERE ATWOOD AND STONE LANDED IN MEDFORD
Top Picture Shows Stone's Monoplane, Lower One Atwood's Biplane

Two of the aviators who engaged in the interstate flight yesterday landed in Medford within a short time of their leaving the starting point at Squantum.  They were Arthur R. Stone and Harry N. Atwood.  They came down on the marsh near the old Mystic turnpike within 15 minutes of each other and they lay for several hours about half a mile apart.

Stone alighted first.  While over the Charlestown navy yard a pipe from the gasoline tank burst.  He realized at once that he was bound to descend so he manouvred for a good place to come to the ground.  He found it on the marsh just in the rear of the racing track and came gently to the grass at about 11:40.

About 15 minutes later Atwood came

Burgess-Wright company and told him of his landing.  W. Starling Burgess of the company was also at Squantum and he accompanied Lawson at once to Medford to inspect the machine.

Atwood stated that he was forced to make a landing because he could not maintain altitude.  This was due to the additional weight which the biplane had to support because of the presence of the elder Atwood.

After leaving the aviation field the machine rose to a fairly good hight.  Lawson, after talking with Atwood, estimated that the machine must have obtained an elevation of 1000 feet while passing over Boston and Charlestown.  Then it began gradually to descend.  Atwood made every effort to keep in the air, but he finally saw that his efforts were useless and he looked for a good place to land.

People who saw him approach the ground say that he came down gracefully.  He circled two or three times

could not have a detail of men to keep the crowd back, and half a dozen officers with ropes and stakes were sent to the scene.  They drove back the crowd, which had reached the proportions of 1000 or more, drove the stakes in the ground and roped the aviator and his machine in.

When Messrs Burgess and Lawson reached the scene a thorough examination of the engine and the machine itself was made.  Lawson said that the engine was all right.  Owing to the delay, however, Atwood decided he would withdraw from the race as he could not hope to finish in any sort of time.

It was different with Stone's monoplane.  While it lay within 100 yards of the Mystic turnpike, there is a deep ditch in the marsh over which it could not be hauled to the road itself, so it had to be dismantled on the marsh and taken piece by piece to the roadway.  It was then [[?]] to the aviation field.
