He was informed as to all appropriations that had been made by every nation for aviation and he often spoke of the coming ues of the aeroplane in war for scouting.  “He statred a school of aviation in Phoenix and secured several pupils.  He actually began the construction of a machine and telegraphed for a motor of the latest type. He came to imagine that he had completed the machine though It was afterward disclosed that he had not. Those who were not familiar with his weakness believed that the story of his machine as a pure Invention. But there is little doubt that Neyvatte believed that he- had the machine.”  Tony Neary, of Miller’s restaurant, today stated that Lavette or Neyvatte was undoubtedly the aeroplane man who several years ago visited Globe, coming from Phoenix, and who attempted to get up an airship exhibition for Globe.
