    Morlas, Lucine (Roquevert) with daughters Elenora and Vivian, circa 1925
    After purchasing a Hupmobile, Lucine and her youngest daughters, Elenora and Vivian, flew to Detroit as part of the nationwide "Sky-Road Parade and Million Dollar Driveaway" promotion. The Party of seven included another purchaser, Sam Dander, as well and the owners/managers of New Orleans United Motor Car Company, Mr. and Mrs. F. J. Johnson. The plane was piloted by John Worthen. The trip probably occured in 1925 or after, when the straight-eight model of Hupmobile was debuted.
