ADA, OKLAHOMA, FRIDAY, MAY 23, 1919. TWO CENTS THE COPY AIRPLANE SIGHTED BY CABLE I IILST WHITE MAN TO FACE Eli-SHIP FARADAY THOI HHT I ECTKOCCTION IN OKLAIIO- TO BE HAWKER. IU lilt- A'-siii'lult-il Press MA GETS NO REPRIEVE LONDON, May 23.—Cable ✓ ship Faraday reports that it sighted the red light of an airplane during the early hours of Monday at fifty degrees. twenty-eight minutes north latitude and thirty-six degrees west longitude, approximately midway between England and New Found-I land .and in the course which would naturally have been followed by Harry G. Hawker in his attempted ! trans-Atlantic Hight. The London Daily Mail announces that it intends .in the unfortunate event that Harry g. Hawker and Commander Grieve have lost their lives in an attempted trans-Atlantic Hight, to donate ten thousand pounds to their next of kin in proportions that Hawker and Grieve had agreed to divide the prize of-; fered for the flight. This disposition will not interfere with the contest which is still open. Attacks on the British admiralty' for its lack of * co-operation with Harry Hawker have become more intense since the virtual certainty of the daring aviator’s death "somewhere in the Atlantic.’’ Commander Bellairs, M. P., said ; today; "When w*e reflect that the admiralty with hundreds of ships allowed the Germans to escape at J Jutland, the absurdity of two de-, st Toyers and a half-manned sloop i searching for Hawker is obvious. lite admiralty has shown a dreadful l,.ok of imagination.” —$- MAY SALE OI ENDING THIS WEEK Final Sparks from the 4.
