E ighteen thousand dollars ($18,000) is

E V E L Y N B R Y O N JOHNSON is now
teaching ground school at M orristown

of hours in the air, had a new flying
thrill recently. She w as invited to ride
in K n ox ville’ s first 727 jet, ow ned by
United A ir Limes. In all o f her licenses,
there is not o r e for hunting, so she
broke the hunting law and caught a
buzzard in the front-end of her Bonanza.
The buzzard w as of no value, but the
d a m a ge to the front of her plane was
expensive. B eing the pilot she is, she
had no trouble bringing the buzzard
and the airplane in for a safe landing.

Party. This y e a r w e decided to m ake
it a real a ffa ir by inviting four other
chapters to join us in a “ fly-in ” to the
Desert A ire Hotel.
Shame departm ent for old “ B u ffs".
E LLY A YO U B, one of our newest
m em bers with a brand new pilot’ s
certificate and total hours o f 45 recen t­
ly took the Instrum ent written and
passed. B oy, how does that gra b y a ?
Some of us h ave been trying fo r ages
just to w ade through the books. No1 to
put GIN NY C H A N D LE R in second
place, she took the written and passed,
but sorry GIN N Y you fall into the
Buff category.
At long last we get to m ark our air­
port. K A Y M A LICK w orked like a
beaver, not only with our A irport Com ­
mission, but con tacting other ch a p­
ters that have had the exp erien ce of
air m arking. Through all of this, we
did decide one thing: W e w ish Orange
County A irport had a nam e like TA F T

I have just had the opportunity to
write an article on A LIC E RO B E R T S

to write about such an a ctive and in­

M Y RN A SH A N FIELD and M AD INE
thank E D N A for the quick work she
did gathering our flight tim e so we
could win the “ Sectional Flight Tim e

Lest I forget, the second annual
49% er r a c e (now labeled the R og u es’
R a ce ) held at F all Section tim e was
won by our ow n BUD CH AN D LER
flying his Skym aster. There was a
little m ixup in the scoring, but BUD
finally ca m e out on top. Then at the
oth er end we had G E O R G E G R IF ­
FIT H and N ED CANTILLON placing
last in N E D ’S (not m ine) 235 C hero­
kee. All in all, the fellow s rea lly had
a fun time, and surely can tell belter
stories than any of us.
N ANCY CREW S has been sw earing
fo r yea rs that som e da y she was goin g
to build an airplane. H er ga ra ge is
now the b ase of operations with two
strapping sons and one willing hus­

gather, she has purchased an old
T a ylor Craft, stripped it, and is now
in the long process of dolling it up.
K now ing NANCY, she will do the lest

Until next month, a H appy Thanks­
