Will Fly Across Lake Ontario

     Rochester, NY June 2, 1910 - Dr. William Greene will attempt, on June 21, to fly from Rochester across lake Ontario to Toronto in a biplane of his own design and manufacture. As the crow flies it is about eighty-six miles from Charlotte, the port of Rochester, to Toronto, a distance over water never yet attempted by an aeronaut.

Three Aviators Fly At Once

     New York, NY - June 2, 1910 - Spectators of the aeroplane flights of Hempstead Heath on Long Island today saw three aeroplanes aloft at once, circling, passing, and repassing each other at various altitudes. Charles K. Hamilton, who has announced that he will compete in the promised New York to Chicago flight, went up 1,000 feet in a Curtiss biplane and remained aloft for half an hour.
     The veteran Capt. Baldwin made a cautious trial in a machine of his own invention.
     Clifford B. Harmon made a trial of twelve miles in a Farman biplane at a height of 200 feet and came to grief in landing. He smashed his propeller and snapped several stays, but escaped serious injury.

Aviation Meet at St. Paul
Bird Men Will Compete for Big Prizes This Month

     St. Paul, MN June 3, 1910 - The Twin City Aviation Exhibition Company filed articles of incorporation here yesterday with the secretary of state. The capital stock is $750,000 and the incorporators and officers are all Twin City men.
     The new company will hold an aviation meet at the state fair grounds here June 22 to 25, inclusive. Thirty thousand dollars in prizes have been offered, and contracts already have been signed for the participation of Glenn H. Curtiss, Charles K. Hamilton and Charles F. Willard. Barney Oldfield will compete against aeroplanes and try for a new world's record in his Benz car.
     A movement has been started here to offer a purse for a flight from Chicago to St. Paul.

Sun Broils Crowd At Aviation Meet
Threatened Thunderstorms Also Serve to Place Final Program in Doubt
More Trials On Schedule
From Here Wrights Return to Dayton, Then They Go to Montreal - Amateurs Will Remain to Practice

     Indianapolis Motor Speedway, June 18, 1910 - High shifting winds threatened again today the aviation events at the speedway this afternoon, and the western sky was hinting of thunderstorms, a condition that helped to keep the size of the crowd down.
     Although the breeze was strong, it did little good as a cooling agent for those who occupied the bleachers. The sun turned a full battery of torrid rays on the bleachers and aviation field and there was small comfort anywhere.
     The aviation card for the final day of the meeting was similar to those preceding, including flights by Brookins, Welsh, Johnstone, Coffyn and Hoxsey, of the Wright brothers' corps of aviators.
     At the conclusion of the program this evening the Wrights with their equipment and their men will turn back to headquarters at Dayton and there make preparations to go to Montreal for an exhibition.
     The other aspirants for aviations honors now at the speedway will remain for practice. These will include Lincoln Beachey, the monoplane builder from Toledo. Beachey attempted a flight last evening and succeeded in rising several feet above ground, but in descending one of the pins holding a wheel to the chassis broke and the wheel flew off. This permitted the propeller to strike the ground and it was broken to splinters.
     Beachey was much encouraged by his effort to fly, however, and at once replaced the wrecked propeller with a new one. He hopes to remain at the speedway long enough to achieve his ambition of doing with a monoplane what the Wrights are accomplishing with a biplane. Beachey's engine is a powerful piece of mechanism that has attracted much attention.
