Aviatrix Suffers Broken Neck In Plane Crash

Kansas City, MO., Aug. 7 (AP)--- Mildred Kauffman, 25-year-old Kansas City aviatrix, was injured probably fatally, and Russell Shaw, her passenger, received a severe head injury when Miss Kauffman's plane locked wings with another at an altitude of 75 feet above Fairfax Airport here tonight. Miss Kauffman suffered a broken neck. The other plane was piloted by Don Moss. Both were flying at high speed and crashed to the ground together. Moss, uninjured, extricated his passenger, Jack Leftwich, 12 years old, who suffered only a small cut on his forehead. Miss Kauffman, a licensed transport pilot, established a world record for women in St.Louis on February 21, 1930, by looping 46 times. She has participated in many air races.

Amateur Aviator Killed, Companion Probably Fatally Injured In Flight At St.Louis Field

St.Louis, May 13.--- Ray Wheeler, an amateur aviator at Kinloch Park, is dead, and Pete Glasser, a companion, is in St.Luke's Hospital probably fatally injured, as a result of a plunge into a telegraph pole at the aviation field tonight. The accident occurred when the aeroplane was caught in a whirlwind about 100 feet from the earth. The force of air dashed the machine among the poles and wires of a trolley line before Glasser, who was steering had time to take the machine upward out of danger. Dr. E.M. Bell, an aviator, had just descended to warn them of dangerous air conditions when Wheeler and Glasser rose. He tried to signal them to come down, but could not make himself understood. Dr. Bell and Tony Jannus rushed to the wrecked aeroplane. Wheeler and Glasser had been thrown thirty feet from the machine and the gasoline tank, which was exploded by the collision and had set fire to the wreckage. The pole which they struck, was broken into three pieces. Wheeler, whose skull was crushed, in addition to other injuries, died on a special car sent to the scene. Every attention was given to Glasser after he was set in the car, and he was met by ambulances and surgeons. Doctors at St.Luke's Hospital said he had suffered internal injuries and a possible fracture of the skull. "The accident was due to no fault of aviator or machine," said Dr.Bell tonight. "I was in the air myself, and needed twenty-one minutes to make a safe landing. I was sure after I saw the position that Wheeler and Glasser were in that they would be wrecked."

JET HITS HOUSE; 4 KILLED; MOTHER AND SON ESCAPE

Knob Noster, MO. (AP)-- A mother and her son miraculously escaped serious injury yesterday when a six-engine B47 jet bomber exploded and smashed into their small frame farmhouse. The plane's four crewmen were killed. Mrs. Clay Curtis and her son Danny, 14, were in the dining room of the four-room house. Danny, ill with the flu, was lying on a couch in his pajamas. Suddenly they heard a terrific roar. "That must have been an airplane," Danny recalled saying to his mother. Then the big ship came hurtling into the house, setting it on fire. "About all we heard was the roar and the crash," said Mrs. Curtis. "Everything was a mass of flame. We started out the kitchen door but it stuck and we had a hard time getting it open." Mrs. Curtis and her son suffered only minor burns. The house was destroyed. Witnesses said the plane, based at nearby Whiteman Air Force Base, exploded about 200 feet above the ground before it crashed. It appeared only a wing of the plane hit the house, authorities said. The nose of the craft dug a huge crater near the house.
Crewmen killed were:

Capt. Robert R Hayes 37 Knoxville, Iowa

Capt. James P Glanokos 36 Rock Creek, Minnesota

Lt. James L Petera 27 Lakeland, Florida

Capt. Frank J Matuszewski 35 Chicago, Illinois

CHILDREN EATEN BY WOLVES

Kansas City, MO., June 17.---Last Thursday, two children of Edward Bachus, a farmer of Rosier, Mo., a small village 50 miles south of Kansas City on the Kansas line, went to a creek about a mile from home to fish. Upon their failing to return at night, searching parties were organized, and last Friday evening their bones were found near a ledge of rocks that had long been known as Wolf's Den. A band of timber wolves have haunted this section for years and it is thought the children were killed and eaten by the animals. The boys were aged, respectively, 10 and 12 years.

CIRCUS TENT COLLAPSES

Marysville, Mo., Sept.19--The big tent of Ringling Brother's Circus collapsed here yesterday afternoon. Two men were probably fatally injured, five seriously hurt and more than two score others bruised and trampled on. Charles Robinson, son of H.E.Robinson, of the Marysville Tribune, was probably fatally hurt by a falling pole. The others injured are:
Edward Booth, farmer, back broken, lung penetrated, will die.

Mrs. Booth, leg broken

J.E. Orme, farmer, arm broken

Mrs. John Kane, arm dislocated, internal injuries

H.T. Carmichael, head bruised and cut

Mrs. Thomas Clark, two ribs broken

The wind had blown a gale all day, and in the afternoon, when there were 15,000 people assembled in the tent witnessing the performance, an extra strong gust raised the enormous canvas high enough to lift all the poles and support from their positions and the whole mass fell upon the audience, show people and animals. All made a panic stricken effort to escape. The show will be delayed here several days making repairs.

SEWER EXPLOSION
A PECULIAR DISASTER IN ST.LOUIS

St.Louis, July 26,---An explosion of gas in the great Mill Creek sewer, late this afternoon, wrecked half the sewer, caused the loss of three lives, the serious injury of several people, and great damage to property. The first explosion occurred immediately under the liquor store of Carl Fuchs, 1014 South Fourth Street. It lifted up the basement and first floors of the building and the wreckage fell back to the bottom of the slimy stream beneath. Barkeeper Albert Mueller was instantly killed, as was also Mr. Fuchs. The body of the latter has not yet been found. Mrs. Timpe, her little son and Charles Humpe, who were in front of the building when the explosion occurred, were severely injured by flying debris. Mrs. Timpe died tonight. Firemen Gohan and Finnegan, overcome by gas, will recover. Richard Thounsrall was badly hurt by flying debris, an unknown man had both legs broken. Another explosion quickly followed the first, blowing the heavy manhole bars off the entire length of the sewer within a radius of several blocks. At present, practically 1000 feet of sewer is opened. The sewer was the largest one in the city.
