While Western Air Express headquarters today ordered continuation of the search to find Graham's body in the wild mountain country around Codar City, Utah, they held the last message Graham wrote in fulfilment of his duties as an air j mail pilot—a notation in his plane’* | log.

Then, according to the picture re- ; constructed by James, Graham ; neatly piled his parachute by th© ! side of the plane, placed his tool ; kit on the seat and struck out for ! | safety after assuring himself the 1 i mail was safe in a steel locker. The wreckage disclosed that Graham had taken a kit bag containing five days' provisions and two flares.
