Brown 'and -his : father, : Pitts- burghers, participated in the Mountain Tennis Tournaments staged in this area years ago, and the latter annexed the .Western Maryland championship; one year. Both are well known in Cumberland. long before Pearl - Harbor, Maj Brown enlisted In the Marine Corps serving in the Virgin Islands and elsewhere, and the day before the Japs hit at the Hawaiian islands, his four-year "hitch" was up. Before long, however, lie was back i service, this time with the Army. He applied for flight training and a while later, he and just 52 others out of a class of hundreds, made the grade and were graduated as Thunderbolt flghter pilots and second lieutenants. Time elapsed,, and a year ago he left *few York as a first lieutenant for England, where, after a short time he was.glven ft Mustang flghter l>ecause he proved himself a "hot pilot." Time goes by, »nd one day recently while battling Nazis over •trance, he was shot down behind German lines and slightly wounded by flak, according to word received here by his aunt, Mrs. Robert LeRoy Critchfleld, Cleveland avenue. But the "adventurous kid", living up to his name, made his way back to his own lines. Now visiting his old hometown of Pittsburgh, where his parents, who now live at St. Cioud, Minn., resided until recently, Maj. Brown has left an impressive record .behind him ... 99 combat missions—and he has earned the right to wear the Silver Star, the Distinguished Flying Cross, the Purple Heart, and the Air Medal with eight Oak Leaf Clusters. But Lady Luck has helped the Major ... he is one of three left out of a squadron of 35 men. One would think, that after those experiences it would be time to call it quits. Not Maj. Brown. He chose the China-Burma theatre after being given a choice between going there or back to France. Stock Market New York, Oct. 7 lions): AUee Corp ,...,... Am Cm Am Roll MU1 ...... At.4; T ...,..,,."

Search for the fugitives, who included four lifers, was being pressed near Grass Lake, 15 miles east of here, after three of the group were reported to have run a stolen car into a ditch in that area and fled into a field. Warden Harry H. Jackson said the convicts used saws, a pipe cutter and a bar spreader to get into an unused cell block from which they then escaped via a wlnrtow four feet from the ground. .
