TO KANSAS CITY.
One Will Occur Early in the Summer
and the Other in

to get both balloon races, rational

qualifying races, deciding what Amer
ican clubs tan qualify to enter i uer

Great compliment to Kansas City
GEORGE M. MYERS
Kansas City. April 5.—Kansas City
practically had been promised the
Internationa! Balloon Race for the
Janies Gordon Rennet cup several
weeks ago. but the first definite in
formation that both the national and
international nights were to start
from Kansas City came in the fore
going telegut tn from George M. Myers, •
Mr. Myers has been in New York
severaliday- attending the meeting of
the National Council of Aero Clubs,
it was at that meeting that Kansas ;
City v, us chosen for both aerial events. '
Tln> rational balloon race will be
held .-.o:ne titqe u> iy in the summer.
It is expected that 12 or more Amer
ican balloons wiil.be cl' .‘red in the
event to determine just wjjat balloon
ist will bear the American colors in
the international race next October.
The competition in the national race j
is left open to any American. The
Kansas City Aero Club, which is lo
bo host for both events, intends to
enter a balloon. Balloons from St
Louis, Indianapolis, Chicago, New j
York and other cities will be entered. .
I lie international race will be
larger and, of course, more Important. 1
The hopes of six nations will be
pinned on mammoth silken bags
which will st,nt from here. It Is ex
pected that 12, perhaps 15, balloons
will take the air in the October con
test. The .lames Cordon Ilennett
challenge cup has been won by Amer
ica. An American victory this fall
would menu the cup would become
the permanent property of the United
States. As a result every foreign na
tion—England, France, Germany,
Switzerland and Italy—which has
been represented in past races, will
send lo Kansas City its premier aero
PREVENT FUTURE DISASTERS
A Society is Eeing Organized in New
York See That Buildings Are
New York, April 5.—A committee
from a half dozen welfare organiza
tions, with the secretary of the Al
lied Duilding Trades to represent
union labor, has undertaken the or
ganization here of a permanent so
ciety, analagous to the Society for
the Prevention of Cruelty to Children
and the Society for the Prevention of
Vice, to prevent infraction of the
building laws and the repetition of
such disasters as the Triangle Waist
The proposed society, according to
a preliminary announcement, will
deal with prevention as well as the
punishment of breaches of the law.
The plan, as thus far developed, is
to have a corps of inspectors con
stantly employed in looking into con
ditions in existing factories and a law
department especially charged with
testing the existing laws and if need
be, of offering new laws for the pur
pose of centralizing and fixing the re
sponsibility of public officials. The
society is no! intended to supplant
any existing bureau or official, but to
act as a volunteer auxiliary, just as
the Society for the Prevention of
Cruelty to Children, for example,
helps the police and is considered a
necessary adjunct to tiie police force
in its special field. The law depart
ment, if need be, will take criminal
action against the public official found
neglecting bis duty ”
