FROM PRAIRIE SCHOONER
By Sid McCubbins
Last Sunday afternoon we took
Mama ( Mrs. A. E. McCubbins) out
to the airport and put her on the
American Airlines plane, Flight 31,
for Fort Worth. This was to be
Mama's first ride in a plane She
had experienced almost every other
type of travel and now she was to
sample the last word ln transpor-
The other day we went up to
Claremore and had a look through
the Will Rogers memorial; coming
back we stopped at Ponca City and
spent a little time at the Pioneer
Woman statue. It reminded Mama
of some of her own pioneer days
including the trip she made by
covered wagon when she was twenty
two. She and Papa and two babies
started out from Bonham, Texas in
the fall of 1897 behind a couple of
mules and riding in a new wagon
They and four other families were
enroute to western Oklahoma where
they were to homestead new land
That trip took thirteen days to go
some 325 miles. But that was two
generations ago and before the now
famous Wright brothers had made
their memorable flight at Kitty
Hawk. Today the two babies of
1897 have adult families of their
own and Mama rides a silver bullet
over nearly the same distance in
less than two hours.
Plane travel is used mostly by
those in a hurry or those to whom
the cost of a ticket is inconsequeu-
tal Not so Mama; she had planned
this trip for weeks and had care-
fully checked the added cast again-
st the experience Several days ago
she had written daughter Daph in

her intended arrival. Granddaughter
Mary Ann had sent back word that
she had invited her whole room
out to the airport to see Grandma
Last Friday we went downtown
and bought her some new luggage—
the kind air-travelers carry. It is
as streamlined as the big metal
plane she flew away on. Inquiry
revealed that only forty gross I Soon
pounds of luggage per passenger is | that
allowed without an extra charge,
so her older and heavier bags were
sent ahead by railway express. Sat-
urday we went to the American
Airlines downtown office and bought
five and that was all the law would
allow We made the airport twenty-
eight minutes ahead of plane time.
Mama's ticket was duely checked
and her luggage weighed. The porter
remarked that it was exactly forty
pounds; he did not know it had
been carefully scaled more than
once, with special thought as to
weight, over our bath room scales
the loud speaker announced
American Airlines flight 31
would arrive in five minutes so we
all went outside and quietly gazed
at the northern sky. When Mama
first saw it coming she said it look-
ed mighty little but when it came
her ticket. They made a record of! down the run-way and stood a
her name, age, weight and the fact j hundred feet or so away from the
that she was a "first rider," leaving
the impression that she might re-
ceive some special attention.
Sunday morning we checked our
schedules again and then went to
church; bttt we left early so we
could make the airport by 1:48
which was ten minutes before plane
time After a hurried dinner, we
snapped a series of pictures in front
of the house and of Mamma getting
into the car with her new luggage
Toby, the dog. was at the window
fence it looked plenty big. The pas-
sengers all got out and walked
around but in Just a minute the
loud speaker was calling them to
load up We saw Mama's luggage
and a bag of mail being trucked on
the field A round of kisses and
then, with her usual resolute step,
Mama hurried through the gate
and across the hundred feet of
