Country Club Phone EA 7-2846 PIONEER STEWARDESS She Donned A Red Beret To Fly Into The Wild Blue Yonder By ERIC CAVALIERO The wind was whistling through the struts of the single englned biplane as the pilot steered her corrugated metal cigar of a body onto the Buffalo Airport runway. " . ' Aboard were a' i young stewardess named May Bobeck and two passengers, a girl and her brother. "Just as we hit the ground, I could see the lower wing was on fire," Miss Bobeck said here today. "I woke our male passenger, but his sister was sleeping soundly. "I grabbed her by the hair and yanked her from the plane seconds before the flames reach the upper wing." It was 1934. In Germany, Hitler was rearming. In Italy, Mussolini's Roman legions were massing against Ethiopia. In Britain, a young flying instructor named Frank Whittle was doodling the first rough drafts of an invention he called the jet propulsion engine. And in Chicago, American Airways (later to be American Airlines) had just made its own contribution to aviation by becoming one of the earliest companies to use stewardesses on passenger flights. Miss Bobeck was one of the first four American Airline stewardesses hired in the winter of 1933. Today, vacationing here at the Westward Look Ranch, she proudly displayed a 30-year pin. The three diamonds were surrounded by a wreath marking her courageous action that day in Buffalo. Miss Bobeck now is principal nurse for the airline's central region, which takes in St. Louis, Detroit REGESTER'S . . .

They needed youth, good looks, a nursing diploma-and short hair. Miss Bobeck measured up to all but the : final requirement. "I almost wept as they snipped my beautiful waist-length tresses," she sighed. "The planes were, small in those days," Miss Bobeck recalled. "And the company made it clear that big girls need not apply. The height limit was 5 feet 4 inches, and there was a weight restriction of 120 pounds. I am 5 feet 1 inch, and then tipped the scales at 99 pounds. "I remember we wore men's shirts and ties, ankle ' length navy blue skirts'and red berets," she added. "The planes had a maximum speed of 140 miles an hour, and rarely flew above 9,000 feet," Miss Bobeck said. "But even so, each trip was an adventure. "Women and children seldom were seen on planes then," she added. "One of my first lady passengers was so frightened she covered her eyes with her hands all the way from Chicago to New York. "Other people carried rosaries, rabbit's feet and various good luck charms," she said. "And one of the first questions always .was, 'Do you have parachutes?' "Mind you, they had good reason for concern," Miss^ Bobeck explained. "The rides could be very bumpy, like the time a man asked me to tell the pilot to 'smooth things out. 1 "I went into the cockpit," she added, ."and as I got there, we came out of the turbulence. ''At flight's end, the man handed out envelopes to the pilot, first officer and myself as rewards fqr 'turning off/the bumps.V Each one contained a $20 'bill, ''Then; at the other end of the scale, there was the fellow who stood up in mid- flight and 'shouted, 'Let's all kneel in prayer, for we are going to perish.' And in those days we couldn't be too certain about the matter ourselves* '·..;·),,. , "After experiencesV.'ILke that, it was wonderful to get passengers like the late movie star Dick Powell whp sang with us all the way tpi New York, and then bought Coke and sandwiches all around. "It was wonderful also' to . be able to avert tragedy, as we did one January day in 1934 en route from Buffalo , to Detroit. "We were flying over London, Ont., when I saw a fire in a farmhouse. The pilot called me into "the cockpit and said, 'Tell the passengers I'm going to buzz that house.' r "We buzzed the building. No sign of life. Johnny, the pilot, did it again. Nothing happened. "Johnny said, 'This is the last time; I'nv going to give it all I've got.' We swooped down for the third time at full throttle, and Johnny gave her the gun. "As we leveled off, I looked down and saw some dots in the snow. People were coming out of the house. It really brought a lump to my throat to see children among them. "A month later I read an open letter to the pilot in a Chicago paper: "But for your action, 11 people would have died in that fire. Thanks, to you, they all survived. Signed, a Canadian family."
