MIAMI, «*.- (XP) -Dale fifed") Jackson, daredevil of the skies and 66- holder of the world's endturane* record for flying, plunged to his death at municipal airport here Wednesday In view of hundreds of persons who watched him stunt a small amphibian plane 3,000 feet above the ground. Jackson had just completed an Irt- side loop when a wing fell aWay from the plane. As the machine tipped over to the side, the second wing dropped off. the crowd watched for Jackson to jump with his parachute, but he apparently was unable to get clear. The wingless airplane crashed to the ground about a mile from the stand for judges of the air races. One wing soared away for severer blocks before landing. Jackson's body was found in the pilot's seat, his skull split open. His right hand clutched the ring of his parachute cord. A pail of gloom was thrown over air meet preparations as spectators arid Jackson's fellow pilots rushed across the airport field to view the wreckage. Jackson had 1 been one of the most colorful In American flying history. With Forrest O'Brine, also of St. Louis, ie' set a world's endurance record July 30, 1929, when they brought the St. Uouls Robin to the ground after 420 iiours, 21 minutes, 30 seconds of sustained flight. On July 4, 1930, the Hunter brothers set a new record of 553 hours, 41 .minutes, 30 seconds,' at Chicago. Determined-to regain their lost honors, Jackson and O'Brine went Into the air again at St. Louis the next month and on August 17, 1930, set a new world's record of 647 hours, 28 minutes, 30 seconds—31% minutes less than 27 days of sustained flight. Mrs. Sally Jackson, the flier's widow ,came here with him from their St. Louis home several days ago as he prepared to enter the air races for the fourth time.

Phil's responses to that special species ot knock were Invariable, He began by diagnosing tbe disease as fatal, since one nechanio named Jake Lucca had left town, and went frantically on from there, Bi> procedure was to drive tbe .ftW for, a * aw hundred yards and Itop It, and leap out, and open tbe hood, and poor despairingly into the {naldes of the thing, and with an air ,ftWPp?«sUJS much, prophecy that W»sj end. Usually, since W»er« VM nothing else to be done, fig would get into the car again, •ltd •**** H witb difficulty, and go for a few hundred yards more be<ere ij« leaped oat and lifted the bood, and peered, and so on. Ann had learned, suffering are moody, nys- things; they will knock like woodpecker and then, once In a MM>7 will atop and refuse to go another step until, after a snor they will pick np witb a spun knocking and pretend tha ha* ever been the matter with garage is in sight tbt-y wil completely— cars with difr pi»toa »od» dread gara$« t}& place tw» been left mile* Then, worn out with tb tjertion of e 1 w u 1 a 1 1 n g where there were only <M» d courage, they wit |k rfown for * time a«4 «fu*» NAM)' Ann knew her #»U>« Bijt ?fiU wa* a P r «ld man Mirjfty, «4d to drive a teem a s»ra#e. in hl « a* r five dollars, was a performance n -hioh ne would tako no part. So icy always -shed by the garages nd broke down-in some lonely spot n the highway. And then Phli •ould leap out, talking about Jake" iucca. and open the hood and peer. . . Stronger woman than Ann have one to pieces with less provocation ban that afforded by piston, rods. • * • 'ONVBRSATION during calamity ' Is heartless and footless, crip- led and offensive, so Ann bad long ince ceased attempting it. They ode in silence, except for tbe nock. Phil bad bis head cocked o one side so that never a vibra- on of sound should escape him. nd Ann had ever so much time to nink about the girl who wrote otes that needed to be burned at nee, and Phil's night work of late, nd the hard, bright antagonism n the girl's eyes. They had passed a garage In a mall town, five miles back, so a elapse was due, and it came, schcd- led precisely, on a deserted stretch t road, Phil leaped out; this made he ninth or 10th time within the our. Ann, too, got out of the car —she usually did so: it seemed more helpful, Phil lifted the hood and looked .t the engine, Ann stood and watched tbe lights 01 an oncoming automobile growing larger and arger. She found no encouragement in the fact of its approach. Another of Phil's conventions con erning piston rods was a refusal o ask for aid from other motorists. 'ake Lucca alone, in a world full it men, could repair piston* rods, and Jake was leagues upon leagues away. The lights grew larger still, and dangerous seeming, and Ann stepped out of the glare just as the car — the sportiest sort of sports model— slowed and stopped, and a girl's voice called, "Hey, hey, Phil! Some more trouble!" Phil had started the engine and had bis ear to its breast so that he could hear the knocks. Ann receded farther into tbe shadows. Letty stepped from the car, and srossed to Phil, and said, h" cnlm- ish voice raised high above the groans of tho engine, "What la it, old dear? Piston roda again?" Phil lifted his head, but be did not come bacfc to a complete con sciousness of the outside world— a heartless, knoekless world wbere piston rods were of secondary importance. A voice that be knew had greeted him, and be returned tbe greeting abstractedly. "Hello, Letty." ne said to Miss King, whose first name be was un of, could not really remember onfounding wisdom, courting and rollcking with folly, nothing much an be done about it. Letty's nest remark, addressed to Ann in the shadows and made with jne hand on Phil's arm. was. Doesn't the poor darling have the oulest times with bis old piston •ods?" Ann came forth and ,was Introduced as Miss Fenwick to Miss ting, and Miss King said politely, 'Phil's told me a lot about you." Miss King's escort came along. His' name was Mr. Smith—a nice easy name to remember, and be was glad to know everyone, or so be said. He disclaimed all knowledge of things mechanical, but offered to give Phil a tow, it Phil bad a rope. Phil had no rope. Letty said to Phil. "Say. listen, TF one email cat Blinks out ot a * bag. wisdom may attempt to cap- If dozens of spry black cats possibly on purpose and «l at once, plunge forth to trip and ture. akig caracole into tbe nignt sweetheart-darling " Ann nad retreated again to the shadows, so she might have been out of earshot; but Kenneth Smith was right there until be walked back to the sporty sports model and climbed into it PhU said, "Never mind that, now, Letty," and she said, "Yes, but I want to tell you—" Phil said, "Don't go, Ann. Stay here." And Ann kept right on going, and Letty kept hold ot Phil's arm. Kenneth said to Ann, "Some crush over the:3," as if he were in pain, and Ann said brightly, "Yes, It 'loes seem t" be." Kenneth sighed; Ann did not. Kenneth offered, "She makes me sick, it I do say it. She used to be a swell woman, but since she's gone pasb on that sheik she's one wet smack right Can't see a heavy date; can't see but a coupla dances after dinner; can't see a damn thing but sbeiky and trailing him around. I'm fed. I'm bloated, I'm through, I'm not doing bloodhound Ing for a living. Not yet." Ana said sweetly and with sym patby that she did not blame him in the least. Kenneth opened the car door. "Won't you get in and sit down and wait?" "Thank you." Ann accepted. "I'll get in and su u-jwn," she sank Into the wide depth of the seat, "but why wait?" Kenneth said, alter a moment "I get you. I'd go In a hurry his damn car wasn't busted down.' "It isn't," said Ann. "it's bl» damn" (from Ann!> "stubbornness.

Any time!" He said it twice, and added that Letty King gave him a pain in the neck, and invited Ann to call him Ken, or Kenny, or anything she liked but Mr. Smith. Ie went on to say that be was unaccustomed to taking girls out for an evening and having them go cow-eyed' over other men, writing notes and sending them by waiters, and that he had no intentions of accustoming himself to such activities from his girl friends. They could stand him up once, just once; after that he'd show them whether or not be was dizzy. Ann repeated that she did not blame him. Unexpectedly Kenneth profered the suggestion that they park, in a road they would reach in a minute, and take a turn or two at necking. Ann declined pleasantly, offering by way ot apology eccentricity ot habit. She had never gone in for that sort of thing. •'One big evening!" Kenneth remarked. Ann again was sorry. No, I didn't mean that," said Kenneth. "I don't go In much for necking myself. Oh, well—of course, 1 go In for it; but 1 don't get any kick out of it. Never have.
