Then I saw a black rain cloud a little to the right. I opened the valve to drain out the gasoline and headed for the cloud, I ran into a torrent of rain, which extinguished the fire on the wing, while at the same time the gasoline drained off.

Steamship Picks Up Wireless; Had Startec For The Azores HAS PASSENGER J^ONDON, Eng., Sept. 3 (AP). —A message picked up by Devizes radio station from Capt. F. T. Courtney’s trans-Atlantic flying boat this afternoon said that he was making for Corunna (Spain), as there was too much head wind to continue toward the Azores. The message to the Devizes station said that* the following was intercepted by the steamship Adda: ".At 1:10 p. m.. September 3, the steamship British Duchess was in communication with the Courtney airplane G-EBQO. The British Duchess’s position was 225 miles northeast of Cape Finistère (on the northwest tip of the Spanish peninsula), 'The message »eads: ‘Making for Coruna, Too much head wind to reach tbe .Azores.

Labrador led the government to order aU wireless stations, light* houses, customs and ether officials to institute a general search and to report immediately if anything is discovered to substantiate the reports. Minister of fisheries Windsor, who is familiar with the lonely and nigged Labrador coast, said he feared that, unless the plane descended immediately on reaching the coast, the situation of the fliers would be hopeless. He pointed out that the wilderness of the interior is inhabited only , by solitary trappers and a few wandering bands of Indians. Colonial secretary Bennett is directing the government investigation of the reports. (By radio to The Herald and .North American Newspaper .Alliance.

Despite rapidly dwindling hope of the safety of the London-to- Ottawa bound monoplane St. Raphael, with the princess Lowenstein-Wertheim, Capt. Leslie Hamilton and Col. Frederick F. Minchin, an extensive search was under way on land and sea. Only two slender clues liad been received to bolster the hope of searchers. The Dutch steamer Blijdendijk reported that at 6 a. m- Thursday (Greenwich mean time) its lookout had sighted a white light, probably from a plane, about 400 miles east southeast of New York while the Standard Oil steamer Josiah Macy reported sighting a plane at 9:44 p.m. fGreenwich mean time) Wednesday night 900 to 1100 miles off the Irish coast. Doubt that the light sighted by the Dutch steamer was the St. Raphael was expressed in view of the distance of the point given from the start of the flight and the elapsed time. Tlie position given w-is nearly 3000 miles from the starting point, and as the light was sighted only 24 hours after its start, it would have had to travel at a tremendou.s speed to get there. Even then its fuel would have been nearly exhausted. The position indicated in the Macy report was half way across the Atlantic and at that point the plane, according to weather reports, would have run into head winds and fog. While some belief was e.xpress«^ that the plane might have been forced down in some isolated* spot in Newfoundland or eastern Canada, aviation authorities at Ottawa and in London said they thought the plane had plunged into the ocean with no help at hand. Tracing every possibility, ships at sea and along the eastern Canadan (Continued on page 9 . column 9 ) The Old McGinty Club Found Things RIGHT With El Paso QLDTLMERS will remember the McGinty Club that did things and caused things to be done in the "good old days.” But better days are coming, and El Pasoans can speed them up bv deciding for themselves "NXhat’s RIGHT W ith El Paso.” Ihe Herald is oitering prizes of $23 for the best answer to the question and $3 each for the five next best. \our answer to this question might convince others that there’s so much RIGHT with El Paso that this is just the place for them.
