Captain Holderman is a World War pilot and his attractive wife declares she will not be satisfied until she is qualified to handle every type of plane he operates. CHILDHOOD DEVOTION. Mrs. Hattie Myers Barnaby, wife of Lieut. Commander R. S. Barnaby, U.S.N., Washington, D.C., who also won her license at last year's meet is here with the announced determination to secure a few records. She is the widow of two aviators, one of whom designed the famous Wacco airplane and founded the original Wacco Company, and is also the devoted mother of two children, a son and daughter, both of whom already indicate that aviation will dominate their future activities. Her grandfather, now deceased, was for many years a member of the editorial staff of the New York (word crossed out) SUN Mrs. Barnaby discovered her initial interest in aviation when her first husband, George (Buck) Weaver, was simply her devoted admirer while studying to become a pilot. He was experimenting with toy gliders in those days and enlisted the aid of his sweetheart to make cloth wings for his little ships, she sacrificing several silk petticoats to aviation and thereby brought down upon her head the wrath of a mother who felt that flying defied the laws of nature. Becoming Weaver's bride she accompanied him on barnstorming expeditions and contributing materially to his success in designing and testing the first Wacco, during one of which tests she was injured in a crash, her young husband losing his life during a flu epidemic. With an infant to support the young woman, following Weaver's death, studied to enter business and become a secretary, but her love for aviation was unchanged by the shadow that had entered her life, and she continued her close contacts with aviators and aviation companies. STUDIED EARNESTLY. Her constant companion and advisor had been Elwood Junkin, Weaver's devoted associate and flying partner, and more than a year after becoming a widow she and Junkin were quietly wed. But life still held serious problems in store, for within five months Junkin suffered a heart attack from which he failed to recover, passed away some months later in 192(number crossed out and handwritten 6) at the age of 29 years, leaving his wife with a second infant to provide for on extremely limited resources. Resuming her work as a private secretary she spent her days in an office, her evenings doing her housework and caring for her little children, and her nights, some times until early morning, studying aviation that she might become a pilot. It was while this engaged she met Lieutenant Barnaby, who had just achieved fame by being the first man to drop from a navy dirigible in a glider, the feat being the predecessor of the present art of attaching and releasing airplanes from dirigibles, and this she became interested in her third husband and gliding at the same time. Still very young and girlish in appearance, she finds gliding the means to achieve her ambition to pilot powered planes and has flown in each of the contests held here, as well as making gliding a study while in her home in Washington. In discussing her remarkable life and her hope for achievements in aviation Mrs. Barnaby says: "Life has been hard and yet not without glorious moments.

Yet in our poverty we were amazingly happy until removed the boyish aviator-sweetheart-husband from my life. Jenkins won my love because he endeavored, without ostentation, to carry on for his friend - my husband - and provide for me and my baby the things I could not secure by my own efforts at that time. "CARRIES ON." "When we were married it simply seemed I was doing as 'Buck' would have me do, as he always declared Junkin was the one individual he trusted fully and absolutely and the one he desired to guard and protect me in the event of his, Weaver's death. And thus it came to pass. I devoted myself to Junkin when he was stricken fatally and felt the sun had ceased to shine when he passed on. But for the babies I might nit have been able to summon sufficient strength to fight the bitter battles, financial and otherwise, this I soon encountered. "Now, with life again comparatively tranquil, I meet such problems as arise by entering a glider aviation we were painfully poor, [Center] 6 R.O.T.C.

Nervousness, weariness, today's small problems slip away from me when I'm in the air, even as the atmosphere slips over the glider's wings and enters the past. Some day, for the sake of those who gave their all to aviation, I hope I will be able to pilot a powered plane, and I also hope that 'Buck' Weaver's son, and Edwood Junkin's daughter, my children, may some day soar into the clouds in which their fathers loved to revel."
