The following reports are taken from
The Calhoun Chronicle archives:
If the various airship clubs are successful this year, sky
sailing will be regulated by statute. Navigators of balloons and aeroplanes will
be forced to qualify in meteorology, chart making, air currents, expansion of
gases, rules of the road, and cloud dodging.
The endowment of chairs in leading universities may soon be
confidently expected, and the B.A. degree will stand for proficiency in
aeronautics, as well as in the arts. The proposed law will also declare a
perpetual closed season for balloon shooting, and every ascension is to be
recorded so that relatives and friends may be assisted in their search for their
loved one’s remains.
