MESSAGE SENT BY BALLOON
Letters for Legion Post3, by National
Commander Owsley, Dropped
From Dig Ucgo.
Messages from the ulr were literally
showered on posts of the American
Legion from National Commander Al
vlu Owsley recently when letters were
dropped from the basket of one of the
entrants In the national elimination
balloon race. The messages were re
ceived In a number of Eastern states
over which the balloon passed on Us
400-mlle Journey over the country.
Anticipating the general direction
the balloons would trnvel from the na
tional headquarters city, a number of
personal messages from Commander
Owsley were mnde ready, and tho
pilots planned to throw these from tin
basket, attached to tiny parachutes, as
they passed over the towns and cities,
inter to be delivered to the commander
of the Legion post In that locality.
The balloon which carried this mes
sage wan entered as "The American
Legionnaire," and was piloted by Capt.
0. E. McCulIough, vice chnlrman of
the Legion's national committee on
neronnutlcs. Captain McCulIough waa
nttuched to various balloon schools
during the war nnd mnde many flights.
Ho Is now division pnssenger agent for
the Pennsylvania railway, and In this
capacity handled transportation ar
rangements on the occasion of tho
vlsltB of the king and queen of liel
glum, Marshal Koch, the prince of
Wales nnd other European notables.
Assisting Captain McCulIough was
Lieut. Carlton I liond of the army
air Konlce now stationed nt Aber
deen proving ground, Maryland,
os n Legionnaire. Lieutenant liond
has participated In u number of
balloon races, being In the basket with
Major West over, who won the 10212
diminution race, which started at Mil
waukee. On this trip the bag landed
In the Province of Quebec. I'anadu,
850 miles from its starting place, 'nils
victory entitled them to competition In
the international race for the James
Gordon Hennett cup, which started
from Geneva, Switzerland, but they
were forced down shortly after cross
ing the Alps.
The ballpen used by Captain McCul
Iough and Lieutenant Bond, and from
which the messages from tho Legion'
head were dropped, was of SO.00O cubic
fOet capacity. It was of the army typo
Md had been supplied by the com
manding officer of the Three Hundred
nnd Eighty-second airship company, G.
H. Q. rPM'rvos, Third corps army area.
The balloon safely landed nt Frank
fort, Pa., a few miles west of Pitts
burgh, in this race, after being In the
air for nearly 24 hours. The aeronauts
were forced to land when they encoun
tered a terrific storm.

bonus to World wnr veterans to the
people by Invoking the Initiative at the

With n powerful former lieutenant

ticnili'd by e-oillrt.'. and "buck pri

busy and comprehensive Job.
Not all of the work of preparing for
the comentlon Is being handled by
Legionnaires. San Francisco has made
n systematic study of conventions and
tho result has been the development of
an flllcient corps of prominent busi
ness men, who, originally "hobbylng

citizens, staid business men, whosn
"bit" dining thu war may have been
tho selling of millions of dollars in
Liberty bonds and thousands of other
fiplendld deeds, are today "drafted"
into the committees preparing for tho
national convention. Their ability to
handle elllclently and well the "short
cuts" that have been ferreted out
through the staging of more than one
hundred conventions each year, will
serve the Legion convention workers
most effectively. Their part Is certain
to add to the already tentative program
that Is now In the making.
San Francisco expects 1H0.000 vis
itors to attend the convention.
NAVY IS TO BE REPRESENTED
Numerous War Vessels and Men U

Nine battleships, ,'18 destroyers and
numerous auxiliary vessels will par

attached to the ships will number 000

Authorization of the battle fleet'i
presence was granted by Theodora
Itoosevelt, Jr., assistant secretary of
the navy. The ships will anchor off
San Francisco October 12 nnd will re
main until October 28. Included In
the licet will be the battleships Cali
fornia, Maryland, New York, Texas,
Arizona, Pennsylvania, New Mexico,
Idaho and Tennessee.
Legion convention officials are en
deavoring to emphasize the naval pro
