Y. Mid-Air Crosh— Pilot Dies After Saving 50 Aboard Constellation By GENE GAFFNEY NEW YORK (UPI) —The terrifying crunch of metal ripping away metal touched off 10 minutes of hell in the gathering dusk high above heavily populated southern Connecticut. It began a chronicle of courage and steel-neryed skill 3y a crack airline pilot who loved to fly as much as he found pleasure in trodding along the lapping surf of the Connecticut coast. His heroics— and the miracle he wrought— were still being praised today. Xe did not live to receive the honors. Capt. Charles J. (Chuck) White was in sight of the 'amiliar coastline Saturday evening when his Boston-to- Vewark Eastern Air Lines Constellation was jarred by a collision at 10,000 feet with a Trans World Airlines Boeing 707 jet.

For practical purposes, the aircraft was stripped of its maneuverability. Swoops To Impact But White, gunning and s'wooping his crippled four- propellor aircraft porpoise-like over treetops, made every second of the 10 tense minutes count—for the lives of 50 of the 54 persons aboard. The 1.umbering Connie brushed the rooftops of a barn and a silo, made a final but futile upward thrust, then pancaked onto 1,000.foot Hunt Mountain in a remote section of North Salem, N.Y., near the New YorknConnecticut border. Two persons were killed in the crash and two passengers died later i< hospitals. The jet landed safely.

Snow Squalls Gale-driven snow squalls whipped off the eastern end of the Great Lakes today, but most of the nation enjoyed mild temperatures and clear skies. The only rain of consequence fell along the North Pacific Coast. Hoquiam, Wash., picked up nearly one inch diuring the night. Colder air spilled southward across the Midwest, but it was not severe for this time of year. Temperatures at 2 a.m., EST ranged from 12 degrees above zero at Grand Forks, N.D., to 71 at Key West, Fla. Unseasonably mild conditions dominated the Southwest, where temperatures soared into the 70s and 80s Sunday. Los Angeles reported 87 degrees, the San Diego State College reported 90, Phoenix, Ariz., had an 82 and Fort Worth, Tex., had a 77. lion's fusilage. Rescuers found his charred body in the passenger section, about three back from the pilot's compartment bulkhead.

Trapped in Blast His luck ran out just by a matter of seconds. Airline spokesmen theorized White perished in a secondary flash fire or explosion as he attempted to shove open an escape door. Besides White, the victims were identified as Dr. Joseph M. Wilkinson Jr., 48, director of research at Interchemical Corp. in New York and a resident of Summit, N.J.; Dennis Flecker of Hoboken, N, J., and Lois Thibodeau of Gloucester, Mass. Three survivors were hospitalized in critical condition. Other passengers and crew members were alsq hospitalized but were expected to live. While plans were being made i for White's burial in Arlington I National Cemetery, Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) investigators sought to pinpoint the cause of the collision. They took time out to praise White, 42, of Rye, N. Y., the father of three children, and the TWA jet pilot, Capt. Thomas H. Carroll, 45, for their skill and heroism. The San Francisco-New York jetliner limped safely into Kennedy Airport with, 20 feet of its left wing gone. The only casualty among 58 persons aboard was a stewardess who sustained a bloody nose.

PHONE FOR AFTER HOURS APPOINTMENT Challenge (Continued from Page One) more beautiful service than its Memorial Day rites, held on the first Sunday of December, Freeland declared that members assemble not from compulson but as a mark of respect to those who are now resting from their labors. Some of the teachings of the order, exemplified by the departed members, he stated, include friendship, devotion, faith, unselfishness, observance of the Golden Rule and patriotism. These virtues are written on the tablets of love and memory, he added, as humanity is better because of their lives.
