Charles Cresswell, nursed the plane from 500 feet up to 5,000 feet then he ordered the other nine men aboard to jump. He followed after setting [he plane's automatic pilot. Cresswell said no one knew Rondeau was aboard and "I don't know what we would have done if we had known about him then. Every authorized crew member and passenger has to have a parachute. There was no other chute aboard..." Rondeau's mutilated body was found in the lower tail section, where he believed to have stowed away on his ill-luted ride.

By RICHARD KLKINKR, NBA Staff Correspondent NEW YORK — (NEA) — Brunn- hllde and Wolfgang, two longhaired dachshunds, looked admiringly at their mistress. Which goes to show they're pretty intelligent beasts, because their mistress is worth looking admiringly at. She's Gisele MacKenzie, the tall, dark and talented Capitol songstress. Miss MacKenzie (firsl name pronounced Juh-/,ell) was talking about her start, with an occasional time out to throw the dogs some leftover breakfast bacon. "I think my parents are still fl little disappointed that I didn't become a concert violinist," fine said, daintily unwrapping eome more bacon. It turns out this Canadian gal has many talents, besides singing and unwrapping bacon. She started to be a "fiddler" —her own word—and was pretty good. She got to the point where she nad to choose fiddling or Ringing. Then along came a bad man and stole her $2000 fiddle, and that was that. Even she was not talented enough to fiddle without a fiddle, so she became a singer. The decision has given many people pleasure—including her manager, who would like to find the thief to thank him. Gisele—a name that has been mispronounced "every way from chisel to seashell"—has some hit records to her credit. She did a 500,000-copy job on "Don't Let the Stars Get in Your Eyes" and has good ones going now in "Gone" and "Let Me Know," Her duets with Helen O'Connell are delights. And the future? She'd like to do a musical comedy, make a million-copy record, and bring home more bacon. i * * * THE POPULAR SIDE: Record companies are latching on to the growing trend toward strict instrumentals.
