The Advance Aircraft Company barely needs introduction, so wide have been the uses to which Waco airplanes have been put in all forms of civil and commercial flying in this country, and abroad in the Central and South Americas. The Waco Nine with Curtiss OX-5 engine has created a name for itself unsurpassed by any other machine of its class and more of these planes are in use throughout the country than of any other post-war design of commercial machine.

Some of the American newspapers have been editorially joshing the Fascisti for sending six heavily armed guards along with Commander de Pinedo’s new seaplane. We arise to defend the Italians in these precautions, but not because we were expecting any trouble from political opponents of the administration,—the rabid American souvenir hunter would be the reason for our worries.

The tri-engined Fokker of the Continental Motors Co., was here for a few days on its cross country tour. The cabin monoplane of the Breese-Wild Aircraft Company recently had its first flight. The plane is an addition to the rapidly growing five place monoplane class. The wing spread is rather small, in fact the whole plane is very compact.

Although the city has nothing to be proud of, outside of owning a piece of land consisting of 110 acres, called the Municipal Aviation Field, there are, nevertheless, half a dozen airplanes buzzing over the rooftops causing the average citizen discomfort in the way of sore-neck-itis.
