We are delighted to honor thtse two men who have thus dramatically recalled Colonel Lind berghs call. Cites National Rejoicing This return visit of French avi ators is even more than an occasion for national rejoicing and interna tional felicitations. What they have done, what the great American aviators have done, Byrd, Ricken-backer and the rest, both those who sacrificed themselves wholly and those who live, is a glory to the whole human race. It demonstrates again the high courage of mankind. It gives heart to all of us In what ever tasks engage us, for it proves that there are no limits to the courage of men and that there are no limits to what courage can accomplish.

GolfWith 71 Io Diegel, Champion, Turns in Poor 81 in v First Round of Test By RALPH TBOST (Staff Correspondent of the Eagle) Fresh Meadow Country Club, Sept. 8 Leo Diegel, twice winner of the Professional Golfers Association championship, is treacherously close to not qualifying this year. In the first half of the 36-hole qualifying test here today Diegel frittered away so many strokes that he finished with an 81, Just 10 strokes behind Charlie Guest, whose 71 leads the field. Diegel just could not get going. A pushed drive on the second hole which brought up behind a tree started him on the downward trail. From that bad lie he rjopoed a shot into a bunker, missed hi out and finally wound up with a 6. Diegel managed to click off a couple of pars, only to hit the skids even harder on the 580-yard fifth. uiegers drive into the teeth of the ' wind that blew straieht down the fifth fairway was a great shot. But his lie was poor. Frightened bv that six at the second hole he didn't dare piay safe and he topped the shot. The next had to be safe, and after reaching the green in 4 Diegel pro ceeded to three-putt from 15 feet.- After that It was a struggle on every hole. His putting touch com pletely disappeared. On the 12th he was up putting for a birdie, but his approach putt from 18 feet didn't come within six feet of the can. He missed the next. Buest's 72, one stroke over par. put him in a nice position to win the medal in the qualifying test. Most of the others did not fare so well. Whiffy Cox managed to eke out a 75. Charlie Hall, the long hitter from Birmingham, got an 82. Pat Circelli, who started off with a beautiful birdie, finished with a 79. Gene Sarazen also had a struggle. But by being out in 39 he was two strokes better than Diegel. Bill Mel- torn turned in a useful 76 despite some atrocious putting. Guest s score was one over par- scored In a tricky wind which caused the star pros plenty of trouble during the morning.

Through the outward nine Farrell was continually short on his approaches, but through some keen chipping and putting managed to collect enough pars to go out in 37. Coming in he started by laying pitch shot stony. That birdie came easy and through the rest of the nine he was right up on all his shots. He made just one slip, on the 448-yard thirteenth, where his second failed to hold the green. That cost him a stroke. . Smith Scores 73 The Fry brothers from Oakland. Mark and Earl, turned in a 73 and 72, respectively. Horton Smith had 73, the bes mark he has had since he first saw this golf course. Earl Fry, the lesser known of the brothers, played inspired golf far better than he anticipated. Horton Smith had a lot of hooks In his wood game, but his excellent recoveries and his certain putting gained him a 73. He was one of the very few who beat par on the 580-yard fifth hole, where he dropped a 15-rooter lor a 4. But he couldn't recover success fully on both the sixth and seventh, where hooked tee shot bred trouble. Smith played par golf from here on to the 16th, where he pushed for a change and then played his second into the huge cross bunker. After getting out nicely he shipped up and then missed a fire-footer. The Joplln young man was in trouble on the 16th, but the old recover shot eked out a par. SUMMARIES Petir OHr .

The reporter said he broke loose from the guards and struck the Governor. He declared the guards grabbed him again and the Governor hit him twice in the face. The Governor threatened to have the reporter arrested for imper sonating an officer, but Robert S. Maestri, Commissioner of Conservation, dissuaded the Governor.
