Famous Froth Blowers - Charles Lindburgh

Aviation Pioneer Charles Lindburgh was a member of the AOFB. Some reports have him being declared an honorary member - this snippet from the Sporting Times 25 June 1927 has him invested as a Tornado of the Order.

And here's a report of the event from the Gastonia Daily Gazette from 12 December 1927.

And two further almost identical reports from the Bismarck Tribune and Ironwood Daily Globe both dated 31st December 1927.

I wonder if the papers were printed by the same printers under different titles for local distribution ?
