redhead inadvertently made the first solo flight by an American woman.

In spite of the governor attached to the engine to keep the plane grounded while Betty practiced taxiing, the unpredictable "pusher" was lifted into the air by a gust of wind. A frantic Curtiss, watching below, wondered whether he'd see his only female pupil alive again. But Betty, who at 13 had roared through Rochester in her one-cylinder Cadillac, and at 19 had just made the first female New York-to-San Francisco auto trip, was equal to handling a mere unexpected solo flight. Coolly she landed and chided Curtiss for having put on a governor in the first place.

The next day, September 6, 1910, wearing a sweater and tied-down pleated skirt, the attractive adventuress officially soloed and made aviation history. The newspapers hailed "Daredevil Betty Scott," but fellow birdmen dubbed her "that Curtiss brat," because, as she later admitted, "I had a fiery temper and the vocabulary of a mule skinner."


Two years later, as a star of the Great Western Aerial Circus, she became the first woman to stunt-fly. One day in Sacramento, during her specialty act, she was descending from 3,000 feet with throttle retarded, planning to pull out at 400 feet. But her carburetor flooded, and she kept going down. Quickly she yanked the stick back, which made the tail hit first. "I was able to walk away," she firmly believes, "only because I was wearing my lucky red sweater." Later, without the sweater, she nosed into a swamp and broke several ribs, her collarbone and left arm.

In 1916 the 25-year-old flyer discarded her wings and came to earth in the comparatively mundane worlds of radio and movies. Today, as beautiful as ever, she still has her adventurous spirit and her love for aviation and a belief in activity. Recently she busied herself tracking down aeronautical treasures for the Air Force Museum at the Wright-Patterson base near Dayton. In the usual Scott tradition, she claimed the job as the only one of its kind ever held by a woman. Perhaps this fails to compete with the excitement of the old days, when Miss Scott referred to herself as a "screwball," but her life is similar in one respect. She is still a pioneer.  END

Have you heard about Cora?
There's a lot of talk about Cora these days, for those "in the know" are telling their friends that Cora is the name of a distinctly superior, imported vermouth. You ought to try Cora Imported Vermouth yourself. You will find that its superb taste and blendability are worth talking about. Imported by Schieffelin & Co., New York.
