No Attempt To Retard Progress In Aviation
Wright Brothers Issue Statement At Dayton
Plan for General License

     Dayton, OH May 6, 1910 - Orville and Wilbur Wright will make no attempt to prevent progress in aviation. This was made plain yesterday in an interview with Wilbur, who said:
     "Our attorneys have no misgivings as to the outcome of the suits that have been brought against the Herring-Curtiss Company and against Paulhan.
     "The Aero Club, of New York, appointed a committee to investigate the title of the Wright Brothers Company to the exclusive use of the flexible plane and other features of the flying machine. The members of the committee, with one exception, were lawyers, and their report indorsed the position of the Wright company.
     "We are to issue a general license to the Aero Club for al aeroplanes, of whatever origin, that may wish to take part in the James Gordon Bennett races, but the club agrees not to countance flights for exhibitions in other places."
     The International Aero Club, with headquarters in this city, will give an aviation contest in September during the week of the fall festival and industrial exhibitions to be given by the Chamber of Commerce. The aerial flights will be given at Simms Station. Wilbur Wright has consented to enter a Wright aeroplane.

Plans Flight For $10,000 From Albany To New York
Glenn H. Curtiss on Thursday Will Attempt Most Ambitious Feat Ever yet Essayed in Aeroplane

     New York, May 24, 1910 - Glenn H. Curtiss will attempt on Thursday the most ambitious flight over the water that has ever yet been essayed in an aeroplane. Under the terms of competition offered by a New York newspaper, he will try to fly from Albany to New York - about 150 miles - with one stop, although two stops are allowed.
     For the last six months Curtiss has been maneuvering for the prize of $10,000 offered for a flight from New York to Albany or reverse, with one stop. Recently he has been conducting experiments to determine the ability of his latest model to alight on the water and float without upsetting.
     These tests are in themselves unique, for although other aviators have alighted in the water, it was never by design. Without airtight compartments, necessary to sustain the aeroplane upon the water, Curtiss believes that he could fly from Albany to New York in one lap.
     Curtiss will start from Rensselaer Island, below the bridges across the Hudson at Albany, probably about 4 a.m. He expects to break his flight somewhere in the neighborhood of Poughkeepsie. His machine will weigh 1,000 pounds, including the weight of the pilot.
