Any Other Day The/d Have Been Home— Families Away When Jet Wrecks 2 Homes, Killing Pilot ST. LOUIS Ifl — Almost any other Tuesday at 5 p. m. the Charles Schneider and Raymond Meyer families would have been at home, But fate stepped in ahead of a Navy jet fighter which smashed into their houses in suburban Berkeley Tuesday, leaving little but charred ruins. The pilot, Lt. John R. Renshaw of Centreville, Md., appeared to be shooting for an open space a block west of the Meyer home. Instead his burning plane hit what may have been the only two unoccupied homes in the area. Renshaw was killed. Schneider, operator of a home improvement firm, said his wife Ruth would be busy getting supper almost any other Tuesday. Their children, Linda, 8, Charles, 5, and Richard, 3% months, would be at home. But it was the first day of school and his wife had picked out the children's best clothes. She told her husband at his office: "I think when the kids come home, 0 Timet Herald, Carroll, Iowa Q Wednesday, Sept. 4, 1957 they'll be all dressed up so I think we'll go oyer to mother's. ^You can pick us up there." They were at the home of Mrs; Schneider's mother Mrs. Lorena Stevens, in suburban Jennings when the plane ripped through the Meyer home and into their six- room frame house, leaving only a few upright timbers and four drawers of untouched clothing in a scorched dresser. Schneider was still at his office. .. Almost any other Tuesday,- Raymond Meyer , would be in the shower bathing after a day on a construction job. But Monday he was kept 10 minutes overtime. JKe made up a few minutes en route to pick up his wife at work. He made up a few more minutes on the home stretch. They were just two. blocks away when the plane hit. Harry Fields, a neighbor, said the Meyers' house "just disappeared." '"By-the time I could get to the door, which was four or five seconds, the second house was in flatnes," he said. The plane apparently, developed trouble immediately after takeoff from" Lambert-St. Louis, Airport a mile from Berkeley, arid was on fire before the crash. Lt. Renshaw, stationed at the Naval Air Test Center at Patuxent River, Md.,,had made the trip here • to pick'up some test equipment!.

He said he was surprised that Western 11 delegates found it necessary Tuesday to query him about Russia's attitude to various proposals contained in their package plan.
