by Janet Spencer On June 25, 1953, Horace C. Boren became the first passenger to fly around the world on commercial airlines in less than 100 hours. Come along with Tidbits as we take flight! • The Wright brothers were not the first people to fly a plane. Seven years prior to their 1903 flight, Samuel Pierpont Langley’s 16-foot plane travelled three quarters of a mile and stayed aloft for a minute and a half. The Wright’s claim to fame was that they made the first flight that carried a human. Langley’s plane was unmanned. • The world’s first fatal airplane crash occurred in 1908 when a propeller broke, sending the aircraft plunging 150 feet to earth. The pilot escaped with a broken leg, but the single passenger, Lt. Thomas Selfridge of the U.S. Signal Corps, was killed on impact. The pilot was Orville Wright. • Many people mistakenly think Charles Lindbergh made the first transatlantic flight. Actually, he made the first solo transatlantic flight, but many other transatlantic flights were made prior to his May 20-21, 1927 solo flight. For instance, there was Capt. John Alcock and Lt. Arthur Whitten Brown who flew a converted Vimy night bomber from Canada to Ireland on June 14 & 15, 1919.

• When Capt. Alcock and Lt. Brown flew from Canada to Ireland, they took with them Lucky Jim and Twinkletoes— two stuffed black cats, for luck. However, these “lucky” charms didn’t do much good. First, a super-heated exhaust pipe disintegrated. Then a blinding fog moved in and the plane would have taken a nose dive into the Atlantic if the fog hadn’t cleared 100 feet above the sea. Next, ice formed over the instruments on the wing after a snowstorm and Lt. Brown had to climb out on the wing to chip it off. But in spite of it all, the two men landed safely. Unfortunately, Alcock was killed six months later while flying in a fog in a Paris air show. Brown subsequently swore off flying forever, but his pilot son was killed in World War II. • President Wilson and other important officials gathered in May of 1918 to witness the take-off of the first airmail flight. The plane was to carry mail from Washington, D.C. to Philadelphia. After take-off, the plane somehow went off course and landed in Waldorf, Maryland— which is farther away from Philadelphia than Washington is. The mail was eventually delivered by train. • In 1938 Howard Hughes filled his plane with ping-pong balls so it would float if it went down over the ocean. He then proceeded to set the speed record for flying around the world. • On March 2, 1949, a U.S. Superfortress bomber completed the first nonstop flight around the world when it landed at Fort Worth, Texas. The plane traveled 23,452 miles in 94 hours and 1 minute. It was refueled four times in flight. • In 1986, the Voyager accomplished the first round-the-world flight without refueling. Cruising at a speed between 65 and 120 mph at an altitude of 8,000 to 10,000 feet it took pilots Rattan & Yeager 216 hours, 3 minutes and 44 seconds to travel 25,012 miles.

STRANGE BUT TRUE by Samantha Weaver

● It was novelist Tom Clancy who made the following sage observation: “The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.” ● Charlie Chan, the fictional Honolulu detective, was created in 1919 by novelist Earl Derr Biggers. The books featuring Chan became so popular that the character made the leap to radio, movies and television. Over the years, 13 actors have portrayed the detective, but not one of them has been of Chinese ancestry. ● When the TV sitcom “The Addams Family” was being cast in the early 1960s, actor John Astin came in to audition for the role of Lurch, the cadaverous butler. He was immediately rejected for the part. As he was leaving the room, though, the producer spotted him, pulled him aside, and immediately offered him the role of Gomez -the lead. All he had to do was grow a mustache.

● The nation of France was still executing people with the guillotine until 1977. ●In 1973, The Who began a major U.S. tour with a show in San Francisco. As the show was starting, though, drummer Keith Moon collapsed. He was revived, but then collapsed once more. At that point, in an unprecedented move, Pete Townsend asked for volunteers from the audience. Scott Halprin, a 19-year-old aspiring drummer, jumped at the chance. He played three numbers with the band, and lead singer Roger Daltry later told Rolling Stone magazine, “That drummer was really good.” ● Rattlesnakes can live up to 20 years. ● Milk produced by a hippopotamus mother is pink.

• Colombian: This term means different things to different people, depending on how you get your “jones.” Narcotics dealers may refer to their products as Colombian, although the actual source is often unknown. Luckily, the majority of us prefer a bit of legal Colombian, as in the coffee grown in the South American nation. The prevalence of coffee shops throughout America is proof enough that many of us just can’t get along in the morning without a hot cup of Colombian. • Chinese: The generic term “chinese” now represents types of food that are very different from the meals that are (or ever were) served in China. That said, the same argument could be made about what we consider “American” food. Hamburgers? Ice cream? Hot dogs? Pizza? Our national favorites seem to have originated everywhere except in the United States!

Lindale Mall lower level 365-4265 Not valid with any other offer or specials • No purchase necessary • No cash value Cranky Hank’s owner, Keith Hazen, isn’t really cranky at all. In fact, he’s a jovial guy who prides himself on running a family-friendly restaurant. Cranky Hank’s is actually named for Hazen’s dad, a former Marine who liked yelling — and pizza. The restaurant’s slogan, “Stop your Belly Achin’,” is exactly the sort of thing the elder Hazen would say, he says, and the grumpylooking man on Cranky Hank’s signs is a caricature of the real-life Hank, who died in 1992. The restaurant, in the lower level of the Lindale Mall, is clean and bright, with an open kitchen so customers can watch pizza makers — including Hazen — toss dough and pull pies out of a large, vintage pizza oven. He even had the ceiling raised so he could toss the dough. “You will not find a scale in my kitchen,” explains Hazen. “Each pizza is an individual craft.” On Friday and Saturday evenings, pizza-makers offer dough-throwing lessons to their younger patrons. There is also kids-only karaoke on Sundays from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. The pizza is “Quad Cities style,” meaning it’s the style of pizza you’ll find at Harris Pizza, Frank’s Pizzeria, Sluggers Pizza and other local spots in the Quad Cities area, says Hazen, who grew up in East Moline. It’s a little sweeter crust, a little spicier sauce and it’s also cut in strips, not wedges. The dough and sauce are both made in-house. Staff members also shred their own cheese and make their own sausage.

Famous Canadians


• Douglas McCurdy, one of Canada’s premier aviators, was born in Nova Scotia in 1886, and graduated from the University of Toronto in 1906 with a degree in mechanical engineering. It didn’t take long for his career to ‘take off.’ • In 1907, he joined Alexander Graham Bell’s Aerial Experiment Association. In 1908, he helped Glenn Curtiss set up the Curtiss Aeroplane and Motor Company. In 1909, he became the first person in the British empire to fly an aircraft, becoming only the 9th person in history to fly a plane. In 1910, he was the first Canadian to be issued a pilot’s license. And in 1911, he made the first flight from Florida to Cuba, one of his most remarkable achievements. • From 1909 to 1911 McCurdy participated in flying exhibitions all over North America. Hoping to give the people of Cuba their first glimpse of mechanized flight, officials in Havana offered him $8,000 (worth $100,000 today) if he would be the first to fly from Key West to Havana. Although the 94-mile journey doesn’t seem like a big deal today, McCurdy knew that if the flight succeeded, he would set a new world record for distance travelled over open water. • McCurdy paid a tinsmith to make pontoons to attach to the wings in case he was forced to land at sea. The U.S. navy offered to string six torpedo boats along the line of flight, each puffing out smoke to aid in navigation. They would also be able rescue him if he crashed. • On a calm day in January of 1911, McCurdy took off from Key West on a short test flight, intending to circle around and land again. But the crowds surged forward, clogging the landing strip. He had no choice but to head out to sea. • Reaching an altitude of 1,000 feet and a speed of 48 mph, he could see the smoke from the funnels of the closest torpedo boat. He could hear their whistles blowing. After two hours, he spied the waterfront of Havana. Crowds thronged the beaches and a cheer went up. • Suddenly, just a few miles short of his goal, his engine quit as one cylinder after another gave out. He was forced to ditch in the ocean while Cuban citizens gasped in horror. Fortunately, the water was calm and the pontoons worked. The U.S.S. Pauling took only 15 minutes to reach the downed aircraft. McCurdy joked that his feet never even got wet, but the plane was a complete loss. Still, he had managed to set two records: it was the longest flight ever, and it was also the first flight ever taken that left the sight of land. • McCurdy had taken the precaution of shipping a second plane to Havana, and without even changing his clothes, he treated onlookers to a flying exhibition. City officials pledged to give McCurdy the prize money even though he hadn’t completed the original flight. At a gala ceremony in his honor, he was handed a fancy envelope. However, when he opened the envelope later, he found it empty. After making discreet inquiries as to how he could get his prize money, he was advised that it would be a touchy and difficult matter. He dropped the issue. • Douglas McCurdy went on to achieve much more. In 1915, he established the first aviation school in Canada, and was the first manager of Canada’s first airport. He was also instrumental in setting up an aircraft manufacturing company located in Toronto. In 1947, McCurdy was appointed lieutenantgovernor of Nova Scotia, a post he continued until 1952. • Douglas McCurdy died in 1961, just a few years short of seeing man land on the moon.

Fast Food Thinking Will Poison You We live in a fast food society and mindset. When we are hungry we eat right away. When we want something we go into to debt and buy it right away. If we are unhappy we build a quick case against those we are in conflict with and dismiss them right away. The results fill our life with pot holes of unresolved conflict which paves the road for an uncommitted life and a fast food diet. So here is what happens when I am unhappy with a school (we change schools, start a new one, or quit), a church (we change churches, start a new one, or quit), a sporting team (we change teams, start a new one, or we quit), a marriage (we get divorced, start a new one, or quit), and a job (we resign, we start a new one, or we quit). The list goes on and on as we attempt to survive the fast food junkie mentality of an unhealthy life. The antidote is to fight and not give in to the drive-through quick fixes on every corner of life. The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me. Don’t quit!!!

Negative Social Interactions

Health Psychology journal recently published a study update that looked at the role of negative social interactions in hypertension. Negative interactions? By that, the authors meant “exchanges or behaviors that involve excessive demands, criticism, disappointment or other unpleasantness.” In the course of the study, they asked questions about each of four social areas (partner, children, other family, friends), such as, “How much can you rely on them?” or “Do they really understand how you feel?” Besides age, sex, alcohol intake, tobacco use, physical activity, psychological wellbeing and other variables, researchers looked at the number of volunteer hours each participant did on a yearly basis. (I found that a bit curious.) Here are the results: ● There was an increased likelihood of developing hypertension because of negative social interactions with friends and family (not children or partner), but no increase because of negative interactions with children or partner. ● Women were more likely to develop hypertension due to negative social interactions with friends. One very interesting conclusion was that women have greater expectations of social relationships, and that “women demonstrated greater disapproval of behavior that violated friendship rules,” leading to greater distress when the “rules” aren’t followed. ● Those over age 65 were less likely to develop hypertension due to negative interactions, but those ages 51 to 64 were more likely. By age 65, it’s thought that we adapt and see negative interactions as less problematic, and that we have better coping strategies. The 51 to 64 group is the “sandwich” generation, responsible for both their children and parents, and therefore more likely to be under more stress. ●Those who volunteer at least 200 hours per year were less likely to develop hypertension, even with negative social interactions in their lives. Matilda Charles regrets that she cannot personally answer reader questions, but will incorporate them into her column whenever possible. Send email to (c) 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.
