Biplane to Be Housed in Big Tent on Exhibition Field.

A telegram was received from Mr. Young, manager of Charles F. Willard yesterday morning that the aviator and the Curtiss biplane would arrive in Holyoke early to-day. The machine will be housed in the big tent provided at the grounds. With a fair day to-morrow the prospect is for one of the biggest crowds which the city has seen for some time. The final arrangements for the event have been nearly completed on the part of the committees and the street railway is making preparations to handle the crowds as well as it is possible to be done.
