He begins stud service next year at a ,000 fee. At the Lougchamps race track in France Sunday an aviator, defying orders against flying over Paris, came- down and lauded on the main course, where the inclosures were already considerably crowded. A woman calmly jumped out of the airplane and walked off. The aviator took the air, but before he got clear of the course the machine fell, owing to one of the brace rods breaking, and crashed just inside the inclosure. The aviator, who wasnot hurt, was attacked by the crowd.
