Official Comment On Speed Plane's Crash Is Withheld MITCHELL FIELD, N. Y., Feb. 16. -Colonel James E. Chancy, commandant of Mitchell Field, declared that any official comment on the crash of the Army's newest and fastest pursuit plane would have to come .from Washington. The plane, a twin-engined, al- metal single-seater capable of flying 400 miles an hour, crashed late Saturday after an unannounced speed flight from March Field, CaL, with Lieutenant Ben S. Kelsey at the controls. Kelsey suffered a few minor scratches in the crash which demolished the plane. He was forbidden to talk to newspaper men. Chancy headed a board of inquiry which forwarded its report of the mishap to Washington late yesterday. The wrecked plane, known as the XP-38; an experimental craft, was dismantled and placed under guard in a hangar. The plane crashed as Kelsey was preparing to land. Its tricycle undercarriage fouled the top of a tree and the craft pancaked into a sand trap on the Cold Stream golf course, adjacent to the field. called for an Italian, non-political pope today and recommended Cardinal Dalla Costa, Archbishop of Florence, as successor to Pope Pius XI. As alternate, the newspaper suggested Cardinal Massimi, president of the commission for oriental codification. It was in an unsigned editorial that ttic newspaper, whose . editor, Giovanni Ansallo usually expresses the. Italian foreign office viewpoint, called for an "evangelical" pope rather than a "diplomatic" one. A non-Italian cardinal?" asked the Telegrapho. "No! For evident reasons. North America? Not Because North Americans are too much involved against the German struggle. South America? No! Because South America' is too openly opposed to the Spanish episcopate, which feels it has not sufficiently oacked the three years' civil war. As matter of fact, we do not see a foreign man capable of being pope." The newspaper then, called for an Italian who would "attend to the :are of souls," and rejected Cardinal Pacelli, secretary of state of the Vatican, who it said was noted as a diplomat. Telegrapho predicted that Pacelli would receive many votes in the early ballots of the College of Cardinals which is to meet late this month or on March 1. But it continued to say that thc first favorite was Cardinal Dalla Costa, "who is truly evangelical and saintly.*' j Marble cutters descended into the ) crypt of Si.
