NEW PLANE HAS
WINGS LIKE BIRD
Inventor Perfects Model After
Exhaustive Study of Wild
Goose and he Eagle.
U. S. EXPERTS APPROVE IT
Ninety-Six Miles an Hour With Eight
Revolutions a Minute Claimed for
New Machine No Vacuum Re
quired andi Is Nonrlgld.
Norfolk, Vn. An airplane with
wings that flap like a bird has been
patented by Thomas J. Bird, formerly
of Johnson City. Tenn.. now a resident
of Hampton. Vn. It can get up from
the water as well as it can from land.
It Is different from the rigid winged
airplane, which receives Its Impetus
from n rapidly revolving propeller. In
soverul tests the machine bus proven
that It can fly, and It Is claimed by
the Inventor and government experts
that it will probably prove n much
better flyer than the present-day air
plane. Mr. Rlrd snys his machine In the
"take oft"' nnd flight through the air
does not crente or require a vacuum,
us does tho present-day airplane. Mr.
Bird, who Is n marine engineer, sev
eral years ago took a course In avla
atlon at San Diego, Cal., and beenrao
n regular licensed aviator. Ills Idea
was to do away with tho present pro
peller and construct u machine with
moveable wings or planes that would
flnp like any winged creature of tho
Studies Bird Flight.
To attain this end he made ex
haustive studies of nnd observed tho
lights of wild fowls, especially the
wild goose nud tho eagle. Ills obser
vations of the sustained flight of the
wild goose convinced him that that
fowl Is one of the swiftest of all

the fleshy side of another skin. Later
they are rolled In packages of tour nnd
put Into casks, then shipped to Kan
Francisco, whence they ure reshlpped
by mil to the Eastern fur centers.
"Seals weighing less than six pound
tuny not be killed, according to law.
Experts say that the best skins come
from those mammals between the nge
of two and four yeais. For the flrst
time this year some of the older seals
those from six to eight years are to
bo killed ns nu experiment. The fur
of these 'Wigs,' as the older ones aie
railed, It courser and not as long and
soft as that or the 'pups' or young
sters. It lnk"8 from two to four skins
for u coat, depending upon Its size and
style. Though It Is not possible to set
an exact price on the mine of n seal
skin, It Is now about $70. Innumerable
Imitations of sealskins nre sold, the
best known being 'Hudson seal.' which
Is dressed and dyed muskrul. Then
there are numbers of near-seal varie
ties, which have such names as French,
Siberian or Baltic scul, etc. All of the
near-seal furs nre simply dressed and

this flying machine Is a gasoline en
gine or engines. Tho most essential
mechanism Is, flrst, tho universal
Joint bearing boxes, which connect
the wings of the flying machine to
the body, and wherewith the wings
are caused to swing, flapping like
those of n bird In the air; and, sec
ond, the wing guiding disk that
causes the wings to niovo downward
nnd upward In an oblong circular
movement similar to that of an oars
man rowing u boat. This eliminates
nil Jcrklug motion In the wing.
It Is the constant aim of mechani
cal engineers In the construction of
gasoline engines in operation to hold
down the speed revolutions to keep
the heat produced by gns combustion,
nnd friction at a temperature that
will prevent distortion of the engines.
For the typo of airplane now in
use tho propellers must revolve very
rapidly, nnd consequently, tho en
gines nre speeded up very nenr tho
danger point, ns where n speed of
ninety-six miles an hour Is roaln
tnlned continuously for mnny hours,
which speed Is that of the wild gooso
with Its wings nnd by muscular
energy alone. In Mr. Bird's Hying
machine, with wings likened to those
of a wild goose, to attain this speed
the wings will be propelled eight
revolutions per minute, whereas tho
propeller airplane will requlro 1,400
