Tierney (Continued from page 1.) Five Algonians drove to Storm Lake Monday morning and rode back to Algona in a Ford tri-motor plane which took passengers here up for rides the rest of the day under auspices of the Kent Motor Co. The quintet consisted of Mr. Kent, K. D. James, M. H. Falken- hainer, Leighton Misbach, and R. B. Waller. They rode to Storm Lake in one of Mr. Kent's cars, which was driven back by an em- ploye. This was Mr. James' first ride, but the others have been up many times, and Messrs. Misbach and Falkenhainer had had training at piloting planes. Trip Thrill for James. The trip home was a real thrill for Mr. James. The party left Storm Lake at about 11:30, and arrived in Algona shortly after noon, the trip taking only 40 minutes. Before the take-off Mr. James said, the pilot passed out large paper sacks for use as "lunch baskets" in case passengers became airsick, which is akin to seasickness. The sacks were not needed. The huge plane took off easily, and soon was flying northeast in a bee-line for Algona. Underneath the ground appeared like a crazy-quilt, Mr. James says, with fields in different shapes, sizes, and colors, making geometrical patterns colorful and beautiful. Off to the north rode the plane's shadow, pacing the plane as it tore along. Height Eliminates Hills. There is no sensation of movement in a plane, and its speed is judged by an amateur only through watching the shadow as it races over the ground. Another strange thing is how height eliminates hills, Mr. James discovered. Accustomed to driving a car where slight rises in the he would go with them, so they stopped for him. Because Bernard had not gone swimming for some time, the group joked him about his ability to swim en route to the sandpit, and the girls told him not to go in if he was not able to take care of himself, for they were afraid they couldn't help him in the treacherous waters. Vfns Apparently Alright. Miss Kain was first to enter the pool, going in at the northeast corner, where there is a narrow sloping shelf of beach which ends in a sudden drop. She started out at once for a swim around the pool, heading south along the west bank, and Alice followed her. Alice looked around once to see how Bernard was getting along, and she noticed that ho swam easily, so she proceeded to follow Mary. Bernard swam to a small mud island less than 60 feet from shore, and rested there a few minutes before starting back. Bernard had almost reached the shelf, when, suddenly, he called for help and began to struggle. Alice and Mary heard him, swam to shore, and ran around the pool to help. Mrs. Tierney, who was standing on the bank, waded as far out as she could, and got within a yard of him. Diving Attempts Fall. Before the other girls reached Bernard he had gone down in water more than ten feet deep. Both girls dived for him, but they | were unable to reach bottom, , though both are good divers. Ner- jvous tension and exhaustion hindered them. I Mrs. Tierney drove immediately to a nearby farmhouse on a Burt telephone line and called to Burt for help. Drs. W. T. Peters and J. G. Clapsaddle both responded. | When Mrs. Tierney returned, Miss Kain took the car, drove to the Crouch farm, and telephoned Dr. M. G. Bourne, for whom she | works, and Doctor Bourne picked up Perry White, lifeguard at the local pool. Lifeguard Gets Body. White retrieved the body in his first dive, and then applied the Shaeffer prone pressure method of resustication. There was little water in Bernard's lungs. The doc- roads and railroads running for miles on end without even a ripple to disturb their even tenor. Pavement is like a ribbon, down the center of which runs a mark. Railroad tracks appear as children's toy train sets. Automobiles resemble kiddie cars in apparent size and motion. They may be going 60 miles an hour, but they appear to be crawling to the plane passenger. Cattle Like Beetles. A farmyard is a thing of beauty from the air, with all of the ugly details obscured by distance and a difference in viewpoint. White spots dashing hither and yon in the yard are identified as white chickens, though they appear only the size of sparrows. Cattle are elongated brown, black and white beetles which kick up heels and race hel- ter-skelter as the sound of the three motors frightens them. A toy-sized farmer on a toy load of hay far below waved as the plane passed overhead. People, like so many black dots, came out on the streets as the plane passed near a town. Bed of Stream Seen. The bottom of streams is seen clearly by reason of the heighth and the straight downward view. Sandbars, mudholes, and hidden obstructions are easily discerned. The plane passed near a large pond south of West Bend in which cattle coald be seen wading around and stirring up the mud. It did not pass far enough north to make Me- lium lake, Emmetsburg, visible. Mr. James has hopes of seeing large fish from the air some day. All sense of fear disappears after the take-off, and it does not return till the plane begins to near the landing place. As it comes down its speed becomes more apparent, and' as it rushes along the passenger nervously awaits the impact of the wheels when the plane grounds. Landing Near Hobarton. The plane Monday made two attempts to land on the No. 6 fnir- way at the Country club grounds, but because the runway was not long enough had to give it up and land in a field north of Hobarton on the west side of the road. The five men were brought by car to the clubhouse, where a joint meeting of the Kiwanis and Rotary clubs was in progress, and Messrs Kent, James, Falkenhainer, and Waller arrived in time to make good their Rotary attendance. Everene Cherland, Burt Girl, Passes Burt, Aug. 15—Everene, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Cherland, farmers, died Monday of tuberculosis at the home of her parents. She had been in bad health for years and for a time was a patient nt Oakdale. Particulars have no been learned, but it is believed that ^VI£ S 2 , 2 or 23 ' " was reported that the funeral would take place this week Wednesday, but where has not been learned. stimulant, three times suit. | Bob Williams, assistant life- at the pool, who also ar- at intervals, more than an hour and a half without success, considered the most satis- method of resuscitation, superior to the use of a pul- air entering and leaving the lungs, but evidently the attempt at resuscitation was too late to succeed. Was Born at Titonlca. Bernard was born August 19, 1907, at Titonka, and thus would have been 26 years old next Sunday. His father died when he was five. He was graduated from the Algona high school in 1926, and was married December 15, 1929, to Gwendolyn Jones, Algona. | For the last five years Bernard had been in the employ of the Decker company at Mason City, where he had been steadily promoted. A month ago he was made city sales manager. The family came to Algona frequently, and Mrs. Tierney and the daughter Marvin spent last week here, Mr. Tierney joining them Saturday night. There is a son, Bernard Craig, 4, who was visiting relatives at Nashua. Services Held Tuesday.
