The Land Speed Record


The Land Speed Record: a test of man and machine. The international rule governing this blue ribbon of records: the two runs have to be made in opposite directions and both of these runs have to be accomplished within a space of sixty minutes. The current record, along with some statistics about the "Thunderbolt" which the speaker planned and built. A detailed description of the event when the record was reached. A description of the engine of the "Thunderbolt." Some last comments about the possibilities of peace, and of war. A question and answer period followed the address.
