The principle of balloon jumping is that a balloon, the buoyancy of which is just a few pounds less than the weight of the wearer, is attached ya harness to a man who then jumps into the air and, instead of coming down at once, sinks gradually as the balloon drifts in the wind.

Dobbs had not been very successful in the morning but by the afternoon was jumping over low hedges and trees and had traveled three fields away from the aerodrome. Apparently without anyone realizing it, he was in the vicinity of some high voltage overhead conductors carrying electric power at 11,000 volts from Willesden to Hendon. These conductors, of thick, bare copper, were seen, and Dobbs jumped with the intention of clearing them, but unfortunately, fouled and caught hold of the copper conductors. Contact was only momentary, but death was instantaneous, and when the onlookers reached him his body was lying, partly charred about the hands and clothing, on the ground. Balloon jumping originated in America, though there is no record of any extensive jumps having been made, but enthusiasts in this country suggested that it would be possible to jump long distances from field to field.

early experiments did not uphold this contention and he had been steadily lightening himself in order to keep in the air, for it is obvious that the resistance of the balloon Itself would prevent any rapid motion through the air, and that in the end the strength of the wind would largely dictate the length of the jump. This again Introduces an element of danger, for in a strong wind the wearer would be carried along at a speed that would make the landing risky. Dobbs, however, was a man with much experience with parachutes, and was making perfectly good landings until the accident. The president of the American Women's club In Shanghai is Miss A. Viola Smith, who had the honor of being the first woman to be appointed a Deputy Trade Commissioner by the United States government, and who for the past four years has occupied that position in China.

The San Dimas exchange has completed the season sooner than the other houses in the valley, which are in the height of the season at the present time.
