Frank J. Marshall, United States chess champion, who made a tour of the country under the management of the "American Chess Bulletin" of New York, defeated J. W. Showalter, of Georgetown, Ky., in a championship match at Lexington. Ky., by the score of 7 to 2, and three drawn. The championship of the Manhattan Chess Club, too, was won by Marshall. Marshall also attended the international congress at Hamburg in August, which was won by Schlechter, and the American was bracketed with R. Teichmann for fifth place.

A tie between Harvard and Yale was

the outcome of the annual tournament with Columbia and Princeton in New York. The University of Pennsylvania won the annual tournament of the Triangular College Chess League in New York from Cornell and Brown,

In two years the world has seen its dream come true. From flights at the altitude of ten feet the bird men are now within whispering distance of 10,000 feet. From mere hops and elongated jumps, aviators now fly from Paris to London, from Albany to New York, from Chicago to Springfield, and talk seriously of a transcontinental flight for a prize. From a few seconds in the air we have advanced until to win this year's International Michelin Cup for duration the aviator will have to fly longer than six hours perhaps longer than from sunrise to sunset.

Scientists studying the problems involved in aeronautics are unable to forecast the extent to which aeroplane and dirigible achievements will amaze mankind before their marvellously rapid accumulation is arrested.

The aeroplane was ready and the Wright brothers stood side by side at Kitty Hawk, N. C., on that now historic 17th day of December, 1903. Who should be the first to try to fly it? Wilbur tells the story with characteristic brevity:

"We tossed a penny. Orv. did not guess right. That is how I happened to be the first to fly. I was up fifty-nine seconds."

It would be a big task, and in many respects of no value whatever, to record all the aeroplane flights made in 1910. Aviation tournaments were held in many European countries, and in America, in addition to the International Aviation Meet at Belmont Park (the blue ribbon event of the year in aeronautics), notable aviation tournaments were held at Los Angeles, Boston, St. Louis, Baltimore and Denver. The important records are printed below.

The death of Ralph Johnstone, the Wright aviator, who established a world altitude record on October 31, 1910, was the sole fatality in American aviation annals for 1910. He was killed at Denver on November 17, 1910, by a fall of 500 feet. Lieut. Selfridge, who was killed at Washington, D. C., on September 17, 1908, while a passenger with Orville Wright, completes the list of killed for this country since flying by aeroplane became a fact. Orville Wright's leg was broken and he lay for weeks in the hospital. Abroad, the men who were killed through aeroplane disasters last year number twenty.

France has sixty aeroplanes for purposes of manoeuvre, Germany is rapidly catching up, and all nations are studying the probable value of the aeroplane as the fourth arm of military service.

Grahame-White broke all existing world's records from six laps to the finish. Leblanc a few minutes later took the honors for speed from Grahame-White by beating his best time on every lap, the only trouble with Leblanc being that he "ran out of gasolene" and did not fly the last two and one-half kilometres of the course. Grahame-White won $5,000 and the Royal Aero Club of the United Kingdom got

the cup.

Leblanc's fastest lap was his eleventh-2 min. 44% sec.--which figures out 67.868 miles an hour-the greatest speed ever travelled by an aeroplane that has been officially timed.
