QUINN BOISE, Idaho (UP1) - He was in emigrant Irishman at titled English heritage who flew with the best at them and his last wish was that his remains be scattered across the rugged Idaho wilderness he c a tn e to · love so well. The son of Lord aod Lady Ashe of London, former Ruyal Air Foyce glider pilot Norman C. Ashe of Boise was killed ID a crop - dusting accident Friday ID a wooded grove near Warren, N.J. Ashe adapted Idaho as Ji i s "native land" five yearsagoaad told many of his friends he intended on settling in the G e m State permanently. He w a s "dusting" for the summer and then planned to return to his Boise home this tall. He was to be married then. A former photographer ( o r the London Daily Mail, Ashe, 44, won the hearts of many Boise- ans with his mild mannered appearance and typically dry humor. Few persons realized that he had such a colorful f l y i n g career. An officer intheBrlUsharmy, he was wounded In the African campaign against Rornmell tn World World II before becoming a glider pilot. Few also realized that he bad flown more than a million miles in Idaho in a short period of five years, ferrying persons ranging from the governor to construction workers tomlllion- naires. "He loved Idaho and his last wish was that he be cremated and have his ashes spread across the back country here," said Mike Loenlng of Boise Aviation. "What can I say? He was my best friend," he added. Ashe died in the New Jersey crash when his converted Navy torpedo bomber went d o w n while he was dusting on an Agriculture Department contract for gypsy moths. "I turned my head and all of a sudden he was gone," saidfel- low pilot Harry Moore of College Park, Md. Moore had bee:i flying alongside Ashe In a Cessna 180 when the Ashe's plane plunged to the ground. Those who knew him best said Ashe was "an excellent pilot In all respects," "He was tall and gangly and had a wonderful sense of mi- mov," Boise attorney Alan Dorr said, "He was one of the finest pilots I've ever flnwn with. He was a delightful person." Boise pilot William Sclierer said, "He was almost famous for his flying record and for his safe flying - he got along well with everyone." Ashe came here in 1962 and worked for Roberts Flying Service as a pilot. He also worked for Leoning Air Service at Salmon and, in 1965, went to work with Idaho Air Service as afire- bombing pilot. He was noted for flying lonely missions above the Boise airport when the ire a was fogged: In, seeding clou'ds so airline; r ' could land. Last fall he rescued a fellow pilot who experienced vertigo and couldn't make^lt Into t h c airport during a s t o r m. Ashe followed the pilot upward, reaching an altitude of 14,000 feet and finally led the friend in distress to the safety of the runway.- Ashe had an estimated 14,000 hours flying time and was a winner of the Idaho Million Mile Award. He was active in all aviation associations in Idaho and was one of the founders of the flying trips across the country with Ashe as tteir pilot. In the short time he was in Idaho, Ashe became known Ended by Crash in New Jersey turned to Ireland after the sec- ed States in 1957 and worked for as pilot for former Gov.

Your reference to a hearing aid indicates that hlshearlngalready is affected, but he Is running a greater risk than that. The ninnlng.ear indicates that a chronic Infection is present. There is no reason to expect It to get better by Itself, It may get worse, and this sort of Infection can leave a person totally deaf. There Is even the risk of the Infection spreading and becoming extremely dangerous. I would guess that the doctor soft-pedaled the Idea of an operation three years ago because he wanted to see whether the infection could first be controlled medically. That's doubless what I would have done -- then. But now, after the infect ion has persisted for three years, it's an entirely different matter. I'd send the young man off to an ear specialist without delay. Immediate and thorough care now, perhaps an operation, may save his hearing and may save him from worse troubles. Dear Dr. Molner: What Is the purpose of cutting the vagus nerve In a case of a duodenal ulcer, to eliminate pain, or to from which the powder was made. Both the protein and calcium content are of value at any age -- and It's my opinion that agood many older people can trace some of their physical ailments to lack of calcium. One glass of milk a day can be very useful to older folks -- more if they like Note to F.E.M.: Yes, successful plastic surgery has been done for years to reduce breasts which are painfully large.
