(UP)-Wcbb Miller, famous United Press reporter who flew 400.COO miles for news and risked Ins life under fire in four major wars, was found dead " side a railroad track — ly the viclii.i ol a prosaic accident during the London blackout. Ife covered Prime Minister Neville Chamberlair/s historic statement in commons yesterday on lhe British withdrawal from Norway but his ivnr correspondent's kit was packed and he hoped soon to be back o'l the firing line in (he latest war of his long ard brilliant career. H was presumed the accident occurred some time after 9 o'clock last night. .Miller v.-as on his way lo the country to get a goot | n i fM - s rest before returning for today's session of Commons. Blackout restrictions require that lights O :i trains be extinguished when approaching a station. Police believed Miller planned to change trains at Clapham Junction, nnd stepped I off lhe coach thinking he was near the piatfonn. A hard blow on the right side of the head incurred when he stepped from the speeding tr fl |,i apparently caused Instant death. An engineer en the first daylight train saw thc body and railroad police took It lo a mortuary. Two letters were found in Miller's clothing, one from his son in New York and the other from Hollywood—praise from a reader of the reporter's best selling autobiography "I Pound No Peace." Miller, whose career earned him thc reputation of ace of war correspondents, was only 48 years old, but into his newspaper career had been crowded more excitement and advcr.lure than the average man can hope for in a life of three score and ten. The burden of "I Found No Peace" wits that the author iva.s at heart a man who would like to read philosophy In a quiet countryside far from wara and the alarms nnd worries of tlie world but, whenever trouble broke out in far away places Miller was thc first man lo look up airplane schedules and make plans to get into the thick of thc story. Ber/Ilo Mussolini and he managed to perform two Jobs at once for In addition to being a lop flight International reporter he was- general European manager of thc United Press. Miller, a soft spoken man of medium height and inclined to be slender, did not appear lo have thc constitution that would enable him to scurry around thc world risking the fevers ol India and the rigors of mountain travel in Ethiopia but he always got through with lhe story and frequently he got through with it lo the outside world hours ahead of anyone else. He scored a world beat on thc Italian Invasion of Ethiopia and United Press newspapers knew the war had started even before word reached the war office in Home. In 1930 Miller flew 12,000 miles through 10 countries lo do a brilliant piece of reporting on lhe salts riots In India. He wont into Russia and came out with a com- .*„ ...v. *...,.,* vi me MUI.V. : missia ano came out with a ilc watched war change trom I prehciwivc explanation of Pershing's cavalry maneuvers on lhe border In pursuit of Par.cho Villa Into lhe mechanized 'bltU- krlcg' that makes'today's headlines. He had the knack of making friends of men of such diversified personalities as Mahalma Gandhi and .. thc Stalin blood purges. Those feats ar.d the work he did on four major wars—lhe World War, thc Italian campaign in Ethiopia, thc Spanish civil war and the Uusso-Pinlsh conflict — did not dampen Miller's zest for being where momentous things were happening. Bdort hi, toth. he had obtained credentials that would have admitted htm to almost every European country and he had made arrangements lo be among the first correspondents accredited to lhe British expeditionary forces in Norway. One of the big peace time assignments of his career was the abdication of former King Edward VIII. In thc months following thc abdication he witnessed thc coronation of the new king—George VI -and later covered the marriage in France of the exile monarch and Mrs. Slmpsoji. Lusl year Miller accompanied Mr.gr George and Queen Elizabeth on Ihclr tour of the United states and Canada.
