A cropped version of this photograph was published on Page 2 of the Oregon Journal on August 24, 1928, under the headline “Tex is a Modern Ajax.” The photograph had the following caption: “Tex Rankin, about to set sail for the East to enter the national air races, decides to put an end for all time to hoodoos. Not content with entering his bus under the number 13, he takes along a black cat, borrowed for the occasion from little Carol Mangold, No. 1429 Mississippi avenue. The cat’s name is Alba Barba, which is Latin for something-er-another. But anyway, ‘Alba’ doesn’t mean black, even if the cat is. Ajax, of Greek mythology, who defied the lightning, has nothing on the Portland flier.” The photograph accompanied a story headlined “Rankin and His Jinxes Go East to Start Derby.” See related image Nos. 371N2073, 371N5920, 371N6220, and 371N6222.
