December 3, 1931
A few weeks ago there was a man came to Fulton and arranged with several here to return later with an airship to entertain a large crowd of people who would be here to see and to ride the plane. He collected one or two dollars for advertising space from each individual or firm who went in with him, then after collecting in advance he headed east and has not been seen or heard from since. He had arranged with Sheriff Pearce for a landing field and all matters had been arranged, but he paid no money out. He received several dollars and that was the last of him. He was in a Whippet car and limped when he walked on what he claimed to be a cork leg.
