It was considered remarkable that only onn passenger lost his life and that twelve other passengers and both pilots escaped with comparatively minor injuries as the tri-motored Ford plane, Nocomoa, with one engine dead, was hurled into the sea some sixty yards off the Boston airport breakwater. The 'only victim of the crash was Perl S. Thorsen, aged 43, of Brookline, a Boston business man, who was pronounced dead from immersion and exhaustion after firemen tried for two hours to resuscitate him. Thorsen had been trapped in the right side of the craft, which was submerged. ABERDEEN, June 6.—Once again the "granite city" of Scotland retains the title of "the world's most thrifty city." Among the contributions of a recent street collection lor the city hospitals were: Eight hundred foreign coins. Over 200 washers. Thirty-four buttons. Tramcar tokens. Numerous nails and safety pins.
