AEROPLANE MEET AT CHICAGO
  The U. W. Club of Chicago is
planning the greatest of its many
notable stunts.
  An aviation meet is promised
for the 17th of November. It is
expected that five or six types of
aeroplanes will participate. Every
Wisconsin alumnus or former stu-
dent who attends the meet will be
given an opportunity to fly an
aeroplane.
  There are in Chicago nearly
700 alumni and former students
of Wisconsin. At a football din-
ner given at the Victoria Hotel in
the fall of 1902 the U. W. Club
had an attendance of nearly 400.
The attendance at the aviation
meet is expected to rival that at
the June banquet of the General
Alumni Association, when    over
500 were present.
  Lynn A. Williams, U. W. '00, is
the general chairman in charge
of the arrangements for the avia-
tion meet and his enthusiasm in
the success of the affair is un-
bounded. He is ably assisted by
Commodore Allard Smith, who
will have charge of the entire
aeroplane fleet. Captains F. E.
Chandler, Andrews Allen, C. H.
McKenna, Arthur Curtis, George
Haight and H. P. Rowland will
each control the maneuvers of an
airship.
  The efforts of these navigating
officers will be ably seconded by
Fred Newman, the chief engineer,
and his mechanicians, Van Hagen,
Crumpton, Weld, Boettcher, Drew
and Potter.
  The commissary department is
in the hands of Fred S. White,
