Weather Blamed For Plane Crash, Death Of Eight CHICAGO, Dec. 5. (UP)—Bad flying weather was blamed today for the crash of a United Air Lines "main-liner" less than two blocks from the, Chicago airport, killing six- persons and injuring 10, at least two fatally, Pilots who inspected the wreckage said 'the wings were ted with ice "two i:n thrpp inr=hp«" fMpl- "TV,,, 0 ;».n^vf coated with ice "two to three reported a ceiling of 800 feet and* visibility of one mile when the crash occurred at 5:48 p.m. yesterday. The plane had flown here from New York, with stops at Philadel phia, Allentown, Pa., Akron, and Cleveland, in weather so bad that it was almost three hours late when it- came in over the airport for its landing. The pilot overshot the field, hit a house less than two blocks away. The plane tore down power lines, which threw the airport and the neighborhood into darkness and crashed into an alley. Flames shot up from the wreckage but these were extin- The airport Payroll At Factory Here L Now Averaging $14,000 Monthly The Rice-Stix factory payroll is uishecf quickly by emergency j filling a big gap in the loss of revenue to Blytheville people after the Chicago Mill and Lumber Company left here in 1932. Since the garment factory opened three years ago in November, the Rice-Stix Company of St. Louis has 40, of Chicago, Federal j paid out approximately $250,000 to crews from the airport, who then pulled the dead and the injured from the wreckage. Charles Manville, 38, of Cleveland, sales director for National Refining Company, and Keller Melton. Works Administration engineer, were the latest victims. They died at Holy Cross hospital, several hours at'ter the crash. Six died in the impact. Among the dead was Wilbert J. Austin. 64, of Cleveland,' internationally known authority on ,facr. lory--construction 1 arid management:' He was head of the Austin Engineer Company, which has subsidiaries in California and Great Britain. Six of the injured were in serious condition, and Miss Florence Little, 22, of Chicago, the plane's stewardess, had a basal skull fracture. There was little hope she would live. .These killed instantly: Passengers—Austin, Wilbert T.; Haneline.

The factory is now using 250 girls and young women and it is highly probable that the factory's output will':-'bk increased substantially in .the liear future^.to : .make£aii .even greater" payroll/ Although no government work has yet been contracted for the Blytheville factory, it is understood chat the Rice-Stix Company is negotiating for such work at other points to make the Blytheville plant a potential one for filling contracts expected to be obtained. Most of the 250 now employed are skilled in the making of shirts, needed in the National Defense Program, with the making of dress shirts and pajamas constituting the work here. Many of those now employed are now being paid ,the maximum of S18 weekly, working on a 40-hour basis and paid by the piece, with time and a half for all work in excess of 40 hours. After getting off to a slow start with 10 girls when the plant opened, because of the lack of skilled operators, the factory reached a peak of 70 employes the first year <md for the past two years has employed at least 200 workers, ac~ :ording to Jack Thro, manager. Several such industries would soon-supplant the large payroll of the Chicago Mill and Lumber com- oany with the garment factory a first step in this direction, it has been pointed out. Blytheville citizens contributed "572,000 for erection of the garment factory, owned by the 'Blytheville Industrial Association" and leased to the Rice-Stix Company for a monetary rent. That this sum has been exceeded LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Dec. 5.— Gov.-elect Homer M. Adkins, smiling with confidence, returned from Washington last night with the statement that Arkansas' $137.000,000 highway debt "will be refunded satisfactorily" if the legislature enacts his refunding bill. Postponing <a discussion of his negotiations in the East until he confers with the 22-member Refunding Advisory Committee he appointed to assist with the program, Mr. Arikins said: "My -conferences with officials of the Reconstruction Finance Corporation and representatives of a financial syndicate proved very satisfactory. I can say now that, ifj the General Assembly passes the bill already drawn and presented, to many of its members, the state's highway bonds- will be refunded." The governor-elect said he i "" ' «ji««" »»«..> tj<~*,it C.\l^CCUCU Frederick and Ryan were not se-| a i most four times in the firs( . rhreg "" ' " "'years of operation by the factory payroll shows that it has <nven nously injured.

Frank Caldwell," chief of the CAA's accident investigating section, left Washington last night . by train. Air line officials said the investigation was scheduled for 2 p.m. today. It was the second fatal accident on the line's Cleveland-Chicago run. The 21-passenger plane had made a slow trip from New York, where it took off at 10 a.m. Wednesday. Most of the passengers bearded the plane at its last stop, Cleveland. Airport radio operators were in communication with the plane when it approached the field from lhe south. Seconds before the crash, the control tower saw its lights "flicker" as it circled the field and then the ship was lost. Tiie motorless plane, with fUse- lage and one wing intact, plummeted to the ground in an alleyway and bounced over on its topside. Flames ate at the nose of (he ship, but did not reach the ploy men t to women who often had no choice of work, except field labor. The Chicago Mill, in its last year of operation in Blytheville, had a payroll of $65,000. monthly, records show. call a meeting of the Refunding Committee within a week. A few minor alterations in the tentative bill will be made, he said. "I have "in mind several changes that I consider necessary for the best .interest- of the stats and to assure acceptance of so large an issue," he explained. He did not indicate the nature of the revisions contemplated. • Mr. • Adkins said the- bond market is the : most favorable in years. '•Tuesday was the biggest day on the market in a long time," he said; •"Kansas City, Mo. .sold an issue of $10,000,000. California and several other states sold lesser amounts. Some of the bonds were issued at 2 1-2 and 2 3-4 per cent interest. Of course, we cannot expect to obtain rates quite that low. But if today's conditions prevail when we are prepared to refund our bonds, we will be an excellent position to save the state a lot of money.'* Mr. Adkins said he conferred with officials of the National Defense Council relative to the Arkansas raw materials available, for xise in the preparedness program. He added that his reception was "'very favorable." He expressed concern over the possibility that Arkansas may lose a seat ''in congress and one of its nine presidential electors as a result of reapportionment by congress In accordance with 1940 population census. "I talked with the assistant director of the census," he said. "Ke told me that the reapportionment is not settled, that two methods have been presented and .that one of them may permit the state's representation to remain unchanged." He said he was informed the fractional method of apportionment had" gained some favor because of its simplicity, adding that the alternative plan proposed by Congressman Rankin iDem., Miss., has been termed ''very complicated."

BEATTIE; Jr. United Press Staff Correspondent ; LONDON, Dec. 5.—(UP)—A day in the life of the average Londdn .family: _. ,; 7 a.m.~All clear. The siren's high note tells the city that the German raid is over for the nib- ment. The family—father, mother, George and Gertrude—gather Up their blankets and be long-ing. 1 ? in an air raid shelter near their home. Mother and Gertrude.had slept in a section of three-tier, bunks now bein^ built. But they were lucky. Father and George had bedded down on the floor. The'ir blankets are dusty and'sev- eral persons are coughing- nearby. We pass ' a recently built -wash room (unusual in most shelters) and a siem. that says: <f God Bless Our Kine" as we go out into ih6 gray morning. 7:15 a.m.—The family reaches their home, which was damaged some days ago by a bomb but not seriously. En route, they pass one new bomb crater and the debris of several previously bombed buildings. Father is greeted by his neighbor, who. chose to sleep in bed last night while his family Slept in the small corrugated Iron shelter in the back yard. The neighbor is feeling fine, 'having slept through heavy antl-aircraft fire from, a .nearby' park, .but'other members of the family are' grouchy and stiff because of cramped quarters In the back yard shelter. Only 15 per cent of London residents use the subways as shelters and an increasing number seek to sleep normally at home if the barrage permits. 7:30 a.m.—There is only one egg available so the family has a rationed quota of bacon, which is cooked with difficulty because the Naiu bombers have damaged the gas mains and the flame is weak. There's enough food for everybody but Lea is limited, partly because; a huge store of tea In London was destroyed by a fire that had nothing- to do with the war. 8 a.m.—Father' walks 10 blocks to the bus. as compared to two blocks before the aerial blitzkrieg, and it takes him twice as long to there too. Father and two shop Ret to tin; office. 11 the night bombing has been heavy it may •luke him until 10 a.m. or later, with .several changes en route. Onct; niter u heavy night attack, lie was waiting on the corner for a bus and the traffic policeman stopped a big limousine, asked where the driver was going and then yelled over to ask If anyone waiting lor the bus was going d two girls said they were headed that way so the policeman told them to get In the limousine" and they rode to work with a broker, all of cli em laughing and joking on the way although they were pretty tired from lack of sleep. 9:30 a.m.— Mother and Gertrude have plenty to do around the house and George goes down the street to the place where once was the home of a friend. The home had cost about $8,000 when built from the family's savings. A Nazi pilot scored a direct hit on it and left only a pile of rubbish, but the family had moved to the country and escaped. 10 a.m. — Mother goes shopping. As she gets to the vegetable market the air raid alarm sounds but nobody pays much attention. Later, Statute To "Guarantee" Payments For Occupational Accidents LITTLE ROCK.

Some people go to the shelters but others continue to ignore the planes. 11 a.m.—Mother purchases vegetables, meat, American canned, soups, clam chowder, chill con carne and some maple syrup. She can't get onions "or"letnons, but her chief limitations are due to rationing of butter, fats, sugar, and meat, and war time prices are high and also limit her purchases. She puts in an advance order for a Christmas turkey at 55 cents ft pound but is told that- she may have to take duck. Noon—There is no school for the children but they are required to study for a certain time each day. About 1.000,000 children are in London or other ''evacuation areas" where schools are closed but the disruption of education, according to, official statements, is not as serious as might be imagined. About 1,500,000 children of school age are getting regular instruction in areas where conditions are relatively normal, which children and in areas to have been evacu- (Continued on Page 6) Mother Of County Residents Succumbs New York Cotton Dec.
