Two Airmail Pilots Have Thrilling.
il il
J. O. Webster and H. P. Little, two
pilots for the National Air Transport
company, had thrilling escapes from
death or injury on Monday. Flying
east with heavy cargoes of mail they
got above the clouds and lost all sense
of direction and distance, Webster
kept on flying until his gas was
exhausted when he jumped from his
plane at an altitude of five thousand
feet and landed safe with his para-
chute near Suffield, Conn. His plane
careened to earth and was wrecked in
a swamp.
Little flew around until he saw a
hole in the bank of clouds which he
dove through and landed on a hill top
near Owego, N. Y. Neither he nor
his plane were damaged and he wag
later able to deliver his cargo of mail
in New York.

ways radiates with good humor and kind-
ness, although he admitted that he had not
yet had time to make plans for Christmas
day, but we'll bet a good stogie tkat
there'll be a party at his house some time
during the Holidays. It's just his nature
to play host whenever there's an excuse :
for doing so and this year will be no dif-
ferent from any other, even if he will be
eighty years old on January 23. He still
drives his own car and a man who can do
that won't stall at a little thing like a
Christmas party.
