He wrote them down, but couldn't, remember the dead child's name. He re membered it an hour later. "Harvey didn't seem overly excited, and acted, like he was absent' minded. We attributed it to his condition after the accident. He didn't show any out ward grief. He said, 'It will get me in a little while. We gave him a cigarette and the steward fed him.

Briton Flies Hush-Hush Pedal Machine By EDDY GILMORE ; London (JP) In a self-propelled flying machine, a British test pilot has partially imitated the legendary flight of the daring Greek Icarus. He is James Phillips, 30. Pedaling a hush-hush aircraft called "The Puffin," he flew 180 yards at about six feet off the ground. : Phillips' is a test pilot for the De Havilland Comet, one of Britain's most successful jets. Members of the Matfield Man-Powered Aircraft Club built the flying machine. They worked on it for the last 18 months. Finally, near . London, they gave it a trial. With . Phillips pedaling, it worked. - Two years ago, a London businessman, H. H. Kremel, offered 5,000. pounds ($14,000) to anyone who could fly a man-propelled machine in a figure- eight circuit for at least a mile without touching down. Phillips didn't do this but his supporters say he made a brilliant beginning. Two other British flying clubs are also after the jrize. Phillips' flying machine has a wide wingspan and is made of light, transparent material. It has a propeller which is pedal operated. In Greek legend, Icarus, the son of Daedalus, got off the ground in a pair of wings sealed to his arms and. shoulders. Icarus came to a watery end, however. He flew too near the sun. The wax bindings melted and he fell into the Samos Sea and drowned. , Phillips is staying away from the sun and water. THS COUXIZa-NSWS 7 Plainfi.ld, N. J. f Thuridoy, Nov. 23. 1961.
