Watching the News Go By

The Chicago Air Race officials developed the novel method of starting the cross-country derbies to the National Air Races by broadcasting the report of a pistol shot in Chicago to the point where the race is starting. If any extremely high or amazingly low speeds are developed by these cross-country racers we can blame it on the probability that they started on the wrong pistol shot.
