ONTARIO —(Canadian Press)— I heard the noise .of an airplane, but I wasn't very interested as we often heir planes around here. TJieiLjomflhJnjL about the sound of the motors made me decide to take a look. I went to a window and could «ee th« plane circling "around, coming; down and then climbing a bit. The motors sounded funny. It went away from the house and then it started to come back. I ran out the back door and it seemed to me that the ground was yellow with light I was afraid that it was going to land right on the house. Just aa I ran around one corner of the house the plane crashed to the ground about MO yards from the house: It landed in an oat field, just missing high tension wires on the way down. It was a terrible thing to see. I dashed into the house and called the FingBl school of the royal Canadian air force right away. Flight Lieutenant Foster, of Fingal came aver immediately on a truck with some other men from the school. My husband went out immediately to the plane. One odd thing happened. I believe that the mail was thrown clear of the plane. The police -beptn to gather it up shortly after they arrived. TiM plane was on fire and the fire department from Shedden cam* over shortly after the crash. They started drawing water from our well and it took some time to put out the flames. grunt Mark Kuykcndall, hard-bitten vpt<«rnn of the regular army, was dismayed to .find that he had 250 raw rookies on his hands at a time when his vocal powers were restricted by laryngltta. He adopted the expedient of Issuing his orders in written notes until he noticed too many grins along the line of recruits. That was too much. The grizzled sarge's eyes glinted like naked sabers. He scowled, inflated his chest, opened his mouth and—out came & faint hiss.

Davis, of the defc mediation board, advised President John L. Lewis of the United Mia* Workers today that the board iroaM consider the captive coal mine dispute "carefully, calmly, and not der pressure" of a November strike deadline. As the board broke up its morning session on the dispute, arranging to return later today, Davis told a press conference; "I think that to set a deadline any proceeding of this character an undesirable thing to do since S puts the board under pressure." At the same time he made a letter to Lewis acknowledging receipt of notice that the new truce in the captive mines would tcrmit November 15. "The assurance given by the Pre$r dent to the United States Steel oar* poration and the United Mine Wotfc- ers of America in his letter of October 28 is "that the full board meeting on Friday, and will be pared to consider the matter conttc- uousJy until it makes its final recommendations.' " Davis' letter said, "I have at tliU time no reason to doubt that the board can complete its consideration of dispute and make ite final recommendations come time next week, but however that may be, the beard will proceed to consider the merit* of the dispute carefully, calmly, and not under pressure," he added. Meanwhile, some 53,000 miner majority qf them members of tha CIO United Mine Workeri "— began trudging back to the pits under the 17-day truce agreement announced yesterday by Lewis after district leaders of the union had voted accept President Roosevelt'* to-work proposal. Town Abandons Taxes For Its Current Year As Treasury Is Full CANTERBURY, CONN. — (AW —They don't ti*« the expression "i sure as death and taxes" in Canteri bury any more because there arenl any taxes. Thi* Windhorn county agricultural town of a little tea* than 1.000 population has voted to do without them this year. Mrs. Lillian Frlnk, town clerk and treasurer, aee* nothing unusual Ui« situation. Says she: "We Just have enough money in the treasury so why should we collect any more?" The..balance.is 115,600, The tax rale for the fiscal year just ended was 28 mills which se*ms ratt high, but the assessments are away" below actual valuation. There were no votes against th« no-tax proposal at the town meeting, but Kome folks argued, anyway, that a Mnall tax ought to be collect-^ ed.
