Crowds Pay Tribute To Wrights
At Scene Of First
Air Flights
* ( fl As s e<~c Pre.- .
KITTY HAWK, N. C., Dec. 17.-
Kill Devil hills, windswept sand
dunes on the North Carolina coast,
became an international shrine to-
day as an "air-minded" world paid
tribute to the men it called "flying
fools" 25 years ago.
Orville Wright, the first man to
fly, was the center of an interna-
tional celebration in observance of
the twenty-fifty anniversary of
man's first flight. Scores of hardy
seafaring folk who live along these
sandy shores anxousy awaited the
return of the man "")in they re-
garded as "foolhardy but harm-
less" ,a quarter of a century ago.
The four living witnesses of the
Wright brothers' first flights here,
25 years ago today, related inci-
dents from their memory of the
first flight.
Life Guards Helped
Three of the men, John T. Dan-
iels, W. S. Dough and A. D. Ether-
idge, are now past 50 years of age,
and their graying hair and ruddy
faces tell the story of hardy early
lives as members of the Kill Devil
Hills life-saving crew.

The fourth living spectator of the,

Moore trudged up though the
heavy sand against a biting wind
