frJUDAY AUGUST 29, l'J3Q (AUK.) COUUIMR N1WS They Arc Favored By Fate Eleven Members of Crack Army Group Have Cheated Death by 'Chute Jumps By NKA Service SAN DIEGO, Calif.—If aviation's famous Caterpillar Club had a formal organization, Ihe 95th pursuit squadron of the army air corps, stationed at Rockwell Field here, would undoubtedly 1>3 known as the club's strongest subdivision. No fewer than 11 officers and men on tlie pursuit squadron's roster arc "living on borrowed time," ar, the flyers say—they are allvi today only because they used ihcir patachutes when disaster overlook them in mid-air. All have jumped 1 foT their lives within the past two years. The tales they lell are among Ihe mosl hair-raising aviation can offer. Dives Through 04 Planes IJclov.' Him A year ago last May, for instance, two planes collided over Nortor Field. Columbus, O. One pilol was killed. The other—Lieutenant A. F. Sailer, of the 95th pin-suit squadron, was not Sailer prepared tc jump, with his parachute soaked by gasoline. But he dared not open his 'chute. Below him, in tlie air, were 64 planes. If he used the 'chute it would drop him among them and he would be killed by their propellers. So Lieutenant Suiter droppec through them. He let himself fall 2000 feet before opening his para- cliule. Then, below the planes, hi let himself drift slowly down to safety. Two Escape After 'Crash in Mid-Air. Lieutenant A. S. Merrineld auc Lieutenant J. D. Kreyssler were practicing combat maneuvers last May. Their planes collided 4500 feet above the earth while each was going 120 miles an hour. Despite the terrific force of this impact both men escaped alive, floating down in Iheir parachutes. Their 'chutes opened at 3000 feel Lieutenant R. W. Gaetz was doing a slow roll til 3000 feel when his safety belt broke a year ago. •His plane 'was upside down. He fell out, head foremost, pulled his rip-cord and came down safely. The commander of the squad- ion is Lieutenant I. A. YVoocMng - living on borrowed time, like the others. Last April his plane went into an outside, spin 800 feet oft the ground. He cut his bell, pulled his rip cord, was thrown clear of the whirring propeller, and came down by parachute, all in tho space of 800 feet. Lieutenant P B Balfour was sailing 800 feel above the ground in a seven-ship formation last fall when a cadet flyer crashed into his ship from tlie rear, the propeller <ie- slroyiiiB the tail of his plane lial- fotir came down unhurt in his •chute. The cadet was killed. Cheats Death by Leap in Dark Youngest of the Rockwell Field Caterpillars is Lieutenant E. P. Kiessig.

Every one of these iiisn owes his life today to utie of those thin, silken bubbles, floating downward from a disabled plane, and the sketches show how some of the most dangerous of these leaps came to be made.

In fact, it is probable that there is no aerial experience that some member of the squadron has wot undergone. There has been everything from being lessee, cut ot an inverted plane while flying upside down, by the breaking cf a safety belt, to diving through a sea of "whirring propellers with their knife-like blades. From available records, tta. squadron holds the world mark for forced jumps from disabled planes.
