Frenchmen Fear Aeroplanes Will Extinguish Birds
Feared In France That Development of Aeration May Reduce Winged Species
Special to The Montreal Star

     Paris, France, Jan 8, 1910 - Birds of all sorts are becoming scarcer in France, complain the ornithologists. According to no less authority than Comte Clary, president of the St. Hubert Club, the danger of the extinction of the winged species is increased by the use of aeroplanes.
     "All who were present during the aviation contests at Rheims," says Comte Clary, "will recall that birds behaviour of the frightened birds as the aeroplanes rose in the air formed a picturesque incident in the early part of the week. In some cases the birds seemed to be paralyzed with fear, while in others they scudded away with loud cries. By the end of the week few birds were to be seen on the field. The same has been true in other parts of France where aviation meetings have been held."

Aviation Station on Roof of Hotel
First Flying Machine Depot In The World To Be Built By Chicago Boniface

     Chicago, Il - Jan 30, 1910 - The first aviation station in Chicago is to be erected on top of the new Blackstone Hotel, Michigan Avenue and Hubbard Place. It will be not only the first aeroplane depot in Chicago, but the first one constructed for that purpose in the world. Plans are now being drawn, and it will be done in three weeks.
     The center of the roof is to be a level, starting and landing place. It is estimated that this will be of such proportions that four aeroplanes may occupy it at once. Below the landing place are to be a dozen housing stalls in which the flying machines may be kept and a repair shop with complete outfit.
     Promenade balconies are to reach entirely around the edge of the roof, and these will be below the level of the landing plane. Stairways will lead from these balconies to the landing plane.
     A revolving lighthouse signal is to be installed on the northeast corner of the hotel as soon as an aeroplane patronage warrants, and the landing plane and passenger galleries are to be brilliantly lighted so that aeroplane steerers will have little difficulty in landing at "Drome Station No. 1" during the night.

Walter Wellman To Fly Across Ocean
Plans To Make Trip From New York to England In July

     Paris, Jan 31, 1910 - It is understood here that Walter Wellman, who sailed from New York for Europe on Saturday, is arranging for a balloon flight across the Atlantic from New York to England or France in his Arctic airship. This, it is said, will be equipped with new propellers and engines. The shed at Gennevillieres where the aero craft is housed is under water. The attempt has been set for July, which, according to the records of the last 20 years, is the most propitious month for such an undertaking.
