Witnessed Hindenberg Fire Frank Bonder expects to leave on Friday for hsi home in Lakehurst. New Jersey. He and Mrs. Bondor were called here Saturday by the death of the letter's mother, Mrs. Eva Germann, at St Benedict Mrs. Bondor will remain for a longer visit with relatives. The Bonders were eye-witnesses to Hindenberg tragedy when the huge airship was destroyed by fire at Lakehurst on its initial trip here from Germany. It is Mr. Bonder's opinion that a static discharge caused the fire which started on the outside of the ship. Pictures and various other observations have led to the belief that the ship was leaking hydrogen as It came in and a tiny spark would be all that was necessary to start the fire. Pictures, statistics and reports are still in the hands of the investigation committee which Is studying them preparatory to giving 1 a final report on the cause of the fire. Mr. Bondor has been an aeronautical engineer for a number of years and was employed In that capacity on the Akron which crashed several years ago. Grist of New, Renewals, U. D. M.
