[first column] They aren't going to say Darnaby is playing second fiddle to his wife." [image-line] Sherman P. Voorhees, director of the National Glider Association, left for New York Tuesday afternoon to complete arrangements for the broadcasting of the Second Annual National Glider and Soaring [image-line] [picture of a can] [top of can] ANHEUSER BUSCH St. Louis MO Budweiser BARLEY MALT SYRUP [/top of can] [front of can] HOP FLAVORED Budweiser BARLEY MALT SYRUP MANUFACTURED BY ANHEUSER-BUSCH, INC. ST. LOUIS, MO., U.S.A. [/front of can] The Flavor is just Right [image-line] Jim Corbett And The Miner "Gentleman Jim" Corbett used to tell a story (too long to be told in detail here) of how he dodged a match with an amateur boxer for a week and when they finally did meet he discovered that the miner was mortally afraid of the man who had defeated John L. Sullivan. Many a young man and woman have hesitated to come here when they needed $50 or $100 or so because they feared they would be subjected to grilling cross examinations or would be refused the loan. We are afraid, too - we are afraid that YOU won't come here when you want some extra money. After all, this is our business. We are just as anxious to make loans as you are to get some money quickly when you want it. Industrial Finance Co. 514 Hulett Building [image-line] [/first column] [second column] [image-line] Edward P. Warner, editor of Aviation, has just sent an urgent message to David Ingalls, Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Aeronautics, who pilots his own plane. The message was something like this: "You don't know what you are missing. Lock your desk and hop to Elmira. The contest is the best ever and one of aviation's big bets." [image-line] Lloyd George of Airway Age, New York, has interested A. B. Macy, a Lackawanna Railroad official, in the Elmira soaring contest, and Mr. Macy has interested President Davis to the extent that Dame Rumor says the chief executive of his staff are soon to be Elmira guests. [image line] Among others planning to visit Elmira during the contest are Lawrence Fisher of General Motors, General John F. O'Ryan of Colonial Airways, George Eastman of Rochester, Berharr McFadden, Ray Howard, the publisher; Paul Bloch, former Elmiran now prominent in the advertising and publishing business; C.T. Luddington of the Luddingington Airlines, J.H. McGraw of the McGraw-Hill Publishing Company. [image line] Lieutenant Barnaby, in discussing his return to Elmira for this year's meet paid eloquent tribute to the beautiful hills surrounding the city and the kidly people who occupy its many homes, and then said: "It would be a pleasure for me to send to Washington for wind to make these gliders fly, but Congress is not in session so hot air is not available. [image line] John G. Parfitt, who is official scorer for the meet, is proving himself an expert in this work. His utmost courtesy has won the appreciation of all his associates, for despite ling hours and trying circumstances he never fails to show up smiling and ready to supply information to all comers. [image lines] Mrs. Parfitt, the dainty and versatile wife of the official scorer, is secretary at glider headquarters. She runs a card index system in her head and questions are answered almost before the final word is spoken. In fact there is a growing suspicion she remains up all night committing information to memory for no one has yet forced her to say, "I don't know." [image line] Happiness reigned supreme at the airport when it was announced that Major Purcell is showing improvement at St.Joseph's Hospital. He is popular with pilots and contest officials alike and his injury caused gloom to enter every heart. When the day's work is done pilots drift toward his room, one by one, to encourage him on the road to recovery. The fortitude with which he is meeting his adverse fate has won for him praise unstinted. [image line] Mrs. L. F. Ross, wife of the official referee, and Mrs. R. S. Barnaby, glider pilot, welcomed into the big family Mrs. Russell Holderman of Leroy, who has entered the contest. Mrs. Holderman in short order started increasing her circle of friends and today a vote would show Mrs. Ross, Mrs. Varnaby and Mrs. Holderman the three most popular contest guests. Their interest in the work and success of each and every contestant in sincere and genuine and strikes a responsive chord in all hearts. [image line] Former Mayor J. Norton Wood, Manager Malcolm J. Wilson of the Association of Commerce, and Mrs. Wilson; and Homer Brotzman, were among the interested airport visitors Tuesday. One of the contest officials, watching Manager Wilson as he surveyed the ling line of gliders, said: "Some of these days you are going to see him dedicate Elmira's first glider factory. Questions he is asking pilots and visiting officials indicates he is going to do his level best to make this city the "Wasserkuppe of America" and he is going to have plenty of backers in his endeavor."
