鈥擥ABE JENNINGS, 2000 U.S. Olympic Trial 1,500- meter winnerBY 5 A.M., Mam谩 Tita had pancakes and papayas and hot pinole on the table. For their preracemeal, Arnulfo and Silvino had requested pozole鈥攁 rich beef broth with tomatoes and fat cornkernels鈥攁nd Tita, chirpy as a bird despite only getting three hours of sleep, whipped it right up. PERFECT! Leadville was exactly the kind of wild, Rock鈥檈m-Sock鈥檈m thrill show Rick Fisher waslooking for. As usual, he was out to make a big splash, and a carnival like Leadville was just theticket. You telling him that ESPN wouldn鈥檛 jump at the chance for footage of good-looking guys inskirts smashing records on a mythical man-eater? Hell yeah! She did not answer, but continued to cry convulsively, rocking herself to and fro. Castalia spoke with trembling eagerness and excitement. She had thrown all semblance of dignity or reserve to the winds. She would have spoken as she was speaking at that moment in Whitford market-place. Gibbs looked at her, and a doubt came into his mind as to whether his suspicions, and other people's suspicions, about her were quite so well-founded as he had thought. She was terribly violent, jealous, insolent, unconverted, full of the leaven of unrighteousness鈥攂ut was she a practised hypocrite, a woman experienced in dishonesty? For the life of him, Obadiah Gibbs could not feel so sure of this as he had felt, now that he looked into her poor, haggard face, and met her eyes, and heard her utterly incautious and vehement speeches. 东京热一本道色综合网 鈥淚 only caught a glimpse of him myself,鈥?I said. 鈥淧retty tough guy to read, I can tell you thatmuch.鈥? The Gordon-Bennett race of September, 1913, was again won by a Deperdussin machine, somewhat302 similar to that of the previous year, but with exceedingly small wings, only 107 square feet in area. The shape of these wings was instructive as showing how what, from the general utility point of view, may be disadvantageous can, for a special purpose, be turned to account. With a span of 21 feet, the chord was 5 feet, giving the inefficient 鈥榓spect ratio鈥?of slightly over 4 to 1 only. The object of this was to reduce the lift, and therefore the resistance, to as low a point as possible. The total weight was 1,500 lbs., giving a wing-loading of 14 lbs. per square foot鈥攁 hitherto undreamt-of figure. The result was that the machine took an enormously long run before starting; and after touching the ground on landing ran for nearly a mile before stopping; but she beat all records by attaining a speed of 126 miles per hour. Where this performance is mainly interesting is in contrast to the machines of 1920, which with an even higher speed capacity would yet be able to land at not more than 40 or 50 miles per hour, and would be thoroughly efficient flying machines. He was quite awake now, however, as he peered sharply at Diamond over his glasses. The latter found some little difficulty in beginning his communication, not being assisted by a word from old Max, who stared at him silently.
