TWO SURVIVORS Of DOWNED B-11 TAKEN FRO' SEA EGLIN AM FORCE BASE, Fla., Aug. 26. (JP)Two survivors from the 13-17 bomber that was shot down by a new type jet fighter were picked up in the gulf of Mexico today by a navy minesweeper, Both were In good physical condition; The air force identified the two as SSgt. Charles D. Jones, 31, of Meridian, Miss., and A-2e Peter It. Hosing, 22, of Ingelside, Ill. '9404- .4 Ruth said they felt fine despite their ordeal of , ! being shot, clown el and tossed , about in stormy 't A," t, gulf waters in a life raft , throughout the ,ter 7 i night. An air force C-47 spotted the , men in the waAP wirrhhotrt ter about, 11 a. col, Arthur Whoa m. and direeted the minesweeper U. S. S. Seer to the SePaP. Btti 11 came aboard the vessel under their own power. They were being brought back to the base here. The air force said it had hopes there were other survivors among the eight crewmen of the B-17. Additional air and surface craft from military bases along the gulf coast were sent out at daybreak to the search area. A rain storm which churned tip waves 15 feet high during the night moderated only slightly during today. The B-17 was sent spinning into the gulf in flames yesterday by a rocket fired by mistake by an Intricate automatically controlled jet fighter. One crewman who parachuted into the water in his life Jacket waved and smiled to the crew of a passing NW flying boat. A life raft Walt tossed to him. Minutes later the area was pounded by a terrific rain storm, and the man wasn't seen again. The air force said the Jet pilot, Col. Arthur R. De Bolt, 39, of Columbus, Ohio, apparently mistook the B-17 "mother" plane for a radio-controlled drone. The drone was following about a mile and a half behind. Eg lin authorities !mid the four eXtrerniliPS of the &one plane wing tips, nose and tailwere painted yellow. Otherwise - it couldn't he distinguished from the mother plane, which is of the same type and model. The coloring wouldn't show up on the fighter's radarscope, which the pilot depends on partly to locate his target. Colonel Debo lt, a World war II veteran recalled to ,aetive duty, was overcome with grief at the tragic error. He was unable to explain how it happened. He saw the hit plainly on his radar screen and figured it was scored on the drone. "The first I knew it was a mistake I heard a voice on the radio from one of the other planes accompanying us saying 'watch for chutes. He got the wrong plane.' " Dello It told military interviewers, "I just can't believe I hit the wrong plane. I don't know how it happened." Another 13-17 "mother plane" escaped being hit, and guided the drone back to the base. SMOKE OVERCOMES TEN BAY FIREMEN SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 26. (c) Ten firemen were overcome by smoke and gas fumes as fire swept a sandpaper manufacturing plant here early today. The three-alarm blaze at the Behr-Manning corporation plant sent about 80 residents of near-by apartments scurrying into the street in night clothing, but the apartments were not damaged. Firemen battled the stubborn blaze two hours before it was reported under control. Deputy Fire Chief A. J. Galli estimated damage at $20,000. One fireman, George Gamuth, 33, was hospitalized. Nine others were treated at the scene. French Cyclists Beef ABERYSTWYTIT, Wales, Aug. 26. tinA team of French cyclists dropped out of the 1487 miles "tour of Britain" cycle race today.
