ROUND THE WORLD FLIER TO GIVE TALK AT THE UNION
Lieutenant Leigh Wade, a member of the recent Round the World Flight, is expected to speak at the Union on February 6, it was announced last night.
Lieutenant Wade was the pilot of the aeroplane "Boston" which met with a mishap, which almost proved fatal, on the home lap of the trip while crossing the Atlantic Ocean from England. This was only one of the many experiences which he went through in the eventful flight which encircled the globe for the first time in history.
He expects to relate some of these varied experiences during the course of his address, which will also be devoted to describing some of the characteristics of the countries flown over, with particular attention to flight conditions. He will also show moving pictures of the various amusing incidents and some of the narrow escapes which the fliers passed through.
Lieutenant Wade, who will be in Boston on February 5, 6, and 7, has given very few addresses on the trip, and his speech at the Union will be one of the first given in this part of the country by any member of the World Flight expedition.
