Above, the Wright Bros. suffer a setback due to pilot error. Don't despair, because in less than two years,  Aviation Week will bring aeroplanes to Rancho Dominguez ... Below, crime briefs from "life's seamy side": James Mulhall, partner in Venice's Ship hotel, is in custody on charges of mail fraud after his son contacts authorities about his "commercial trickery" ... A young girl is accused of stealing an alligator purse from the dressing room of the Orpheum Theater ... An arsonist in Chicago tries to set fire to a school ... And a robber holds up Tong Yen's jewelry store.
