By Lew Larkin, (The Star » Jeffetmm City Correspondent. * Macon, May 29.—Frank P.

Briggs, assistant secretary j of the interior, is best known here as the editor of the Macon Chrinicie-Herald, but he has many other titles. When President John Kennedy tagged Briggs to be under secretary of the interior in charge of fish and wildlife, he selected a nationally-known personality for this post. Governor Dalton There. Gov, John M.

This is an impression of a fast 30-minute ride in a Grumann F9F8T Cougar—a Navy jet fighter. A football- type helmet and a myriad of straps are the only things that take you out of the big- car class. You even have an automatic control run by an electric motor that adjusts the seat.

After the argument yesterday, Linda became despondent, Monger said. Monger said he did not know the nature of the disputes but that Linda went into the back yard of their home on route 1. poured gasoline over her clothing, and touched it off with a match. Hysterical screams of three other sisters in the yard with Linda brought the girl’s mother, Mrs. Marion Moore, into the yard. She tore off Linda’s flaming clothes. The sheriff said the trouble was between Linda and a mar ried, sister Mrs. Carolyn Har ris, who had come home to live aff - separating from her husband. Linda s grave condition pre vented authorities from talking with her. « ------------------- News Ov issoun. EBB CITY — FrediCoblenz.

Your heart sinks a little when you are told which switches you can touch. They are hooked to the ejection apparatus. ‘ But there is no need to worry.” the crewmen explain. ‘the whole operation is automatic.” No more 1*2-3 count before you pull the rip cord. “Reach up over your head like you are doing pull-ups," a crewman explains, and grasp the bar above your head on the back of the high seat,” The fast thing you would see before leaving the plane is a black hood that comes down over your face. After that, don’t worry, he says. Rockets will shoot you out of the plane and your chute will open. Thank goodness that was not one of the thrills of the ride. The pilot, Lt. Cmdr. Ken Wallace of the famed Blue Angels flying group, is now set to take you for a quick trip around Kansas City, or so he says. But a few more miles and you would have been in Iowa. In Perilous Position. Wallace is the slot man on the Navy team. In other words he flies three feet behind the exhause of the leader, the nose of his supersonic fighter just 11 feet below the huge pipe.

Down from 10.000 feet in a few seconds and a run at 1,000 feet at 600 miles an hour. You pass two counties in Kansas in about three breaths. “This landing will be like a student piloting a Piper Cub," Wallace explains. He says he will have to come in at about 150 miles an hour because of the heavy load of unburned fuel. He didn’t, though, and I couldn’t even tell when the wheels hit the runway. Even though the plane was air-conditioned, the effects of the flight showed when I took off the flight suit. I was wringing wet with sweat. and Homer Charles Hoard, 40, manager of a riverfront hotel.
