Endurance Fliers in Seventeenth Day MUNCIE, Ind., Oct. 17.—(/P)— Robert F. McDaniels, 25, of Muncie and Kelvin F. Baxter, 23, of Richmond today were in their seventeenth day of a flight {or a new aviation endurance record. Their 1,100-pound cabin monoplane, powered with a 50- horsepower engine, droned on after surpassing the 343 hours, 46 minutes which the Moody brothers of Decatur, HI., had claimed to be the record for light planes. The fliers' ground crew said their goal was to outdo Fred and Al Keys, who flew 655 hours in a heavy airplane at Meridian, Miss., three years ago. The Muncie pair ignored the claim of Clyde Schleipper and Was Carroll of Long Beach, Calif., to the light mark, contending pontoons on the Californians 1 plane made it ineligible. Murderer Hangs Self at Jackson JACKSON, Oct. 17.—(/P)—Officials of the State Prison of Southern Michigan announced today that Forest E. Weaver, 39, of Muskegon, serving a life sentence for the slaying of a Muskegon girl who jilted him, ended his life Monday night by hanging himself in his cell. Weaver left a "death message" painted on his chest in red and black ink which read "I prefer death to a life sentence. Let's get it over with." Weaver was convicted of slaying Mrs. Gladys Eehardt, 20, while on a skiing party nine years ago. He confessed he had shot Mrs. Eehardt, who was separated from her husband, dismembered the body, and buried it in a sandy grave beneath the snow. Legend makes the amethyst a protection against thieves and drunkenness. Property Dispute Causes Two Deaths WYANDOTTE, Oct. 17.
