By the time this issue of AVIATION gets into the hands of its readers the National Air Races will have become history. There are a lot of standard comments that might be made about any air races and we are greatly tempted to use a few of them in this week’s stint, in spite of the fact that the races are still a few days off when this is being written.

1,500 Miles in One Day A round trip from Post Field, Fort Sill, Okla., to Chanute Field, Rantoul, I11., in one day, was recently made by Capt. R. H. Ballard, Air Corps. Leaving Post Field at about 5 a. m. to ferry Private Gregory to the Airplane Mechanics School at Chanute, Captain Ballard greatly surprised the inhabitants of the post by returning at about 7 p. m. He flew one of the new Douglas O-2 airplanes and made the outbound trip to Chanute Field, a distance of 700 miles, without stop, in 6 hr. and 20 min. Returning, he stopped for gasoline at Kansas City, and required a total of 7 hr. to reach the home airdrome, a distance of 800 miles. Last year, the same trip was attempted by Captain Ballard in a DH, but after 14 hr. of flying darkness forced a halt at Muskogee, Okla., on the return trip. The distance is about 1.500 miles. Thirty Air Officers Requested Transfers Thirty officers of the Air Service voluntarily transferred to other branches of the Army during the fiscal year ending June 30, the Dept, of War announces. This was the largest number of transfers from any branch of the Army. Eighty-seven officers were moved from one service to another during the year, the Signal Corps gaining more men in the transfer than any other branch.

Herbert A. Dargue, office of the chief of the Air Corps, who would be in charge of the flight. The department explained, in connection with its announcement, that further details of the contemplated flight are contingent upon arrangements now being made by the Depart?nent of State with the South American countries over which the planes would fly. The ten pilots, tentatively chosen, in the proposed flight, are as follows : Maj. Herbert A. Dargue, Office, Chief of Air Service (In charge); Capt. Arthur B. McDaniel, Kelly Field; Capt. Ira C. Èaker, Office, Chief of Air Corps; Capt. Clinton F. Woolsey, McCook Field; 1st Lieut. Bernard S. Thompson, Phillips Field; 1st Lieut. Leonard D. Weddington, Fort Sam Houston ; 1st Lieut. Charles McK.
