MAJOR CLARK MISSING
Daring Aviator Failed
To Reach Hilo And Where
abouts Is Unknown Left
Maui At 3 P. M. After
Splendid Flight From Ho
nolulu Heard In Night
Over Shipman Ranch
Word reached Maui last night that
up to 10:30 o'clock Major Clark had
not reached Hilo. The naval author
ities in Honolulu were busy all night
with the wireless trying to locate the
missing aviator and his assistant.
At 2 o'clock this afternoon the Maui
News received the following radio
(Special to Maui News)
Honolulu, May 10 No news receiv
ed here from Major Clark since yes
terday. He was supposedly sighted
over north Kohala and later was
heard over the Shipman Ranch.
A wireless message to Hilo asking
for latest developments is still un
answered. Army authorities main-i
tain belief that aviator is safe. Some
belieye he swung out to sea again and j
then dove through clouds and is slow-1
ly making his way to land. Will keep I
you posted. I
It seems likely that heavy clouds
prevented Major Clark from keeping
his bearings or locating Hilo. It
might be possible that he made a
landing on some of the highlands of
Hawaii remote from telephone, and
has not yet been able to report. If
he landed in the ocean his machine
would probably keep afloat unless
the weather were exceptionally rough,
even though his motor were disabled.
Major Harold E. Clark, U. S. Army
Signal Corps, made history for the
territory yesterday when lie flew from
Pearl Harbor to Kahulul, and later
to Hilo In a hydroaeroplane. It was
the first time such a feat had been ac
complished, and was the first time
that a flying machine was ever seen
in, action on Maui.
The announcement that Major Clark
would make his long anticipated
flight yesterday was not known unt
Wednesday evening, but through the
Daily Wireless and by phone the
news was rapidly spread with the re
suit that many hundreds of Maul
people were able to witness the unique
Major Clark, accompanied by
sergeant of the signal corps as
mechanician, landed in Kahului har
bor almost at the noon hour. He
left Honolulu about quarter after
o'clock. It was announced that he
would arrive about 11 o'clock, but the
unusually strong trade winds against
which the entire flight was made re

ing for Kahului over the west Maui
mountains, from the Waihee side.

sailed in a great circle over Wailuku
and out Puuneno way, dropping low
er and lower as it approached Kahu
lui. It then circled Kahului harbor
at an altitude of but a few hundred
feet, giving the big crowd which lined
the harbor an excellent chance to see
it, and then glided gracefully as some
great water fowl down upon the har
bor surface. Major Clark piloted his
craft across the harbor, finally beach
ing it upon the sand inside the east
breakwater. He got away shortly be
fore 3 o'clock.
In order to give the pupils of the
Maui High School a chance to see
the flight, Major Clark swung away
towards Hamakuapoko, thence des
cribing a great circle as he gained
atlitude and taking his course around
Haleakala by way of Ulupalakua.
Did Not Cross Crater
Owing to the delay caused by the
wind Major Clark decided not to
cross Haleakala, as he had intended,
owing to the time that would be con
sumed in gaining the necessary alti
tude. He stated that he had not been
over 8000 feet on the entire trip. His
machine is by no means the most
modern, or as speedy or adapted to
climbing as the machines now in use
Major Clark declared that his trip
to Maui was a most beautiful one and
very enjoyable. He took a number of
photographs which he expects will be
of much interest

three runs, and they were within one
run of tying the score, Maher stepped
to the bat, took two healthv swincs
at the balls served up, then, when
everyone had turned their head to
avoid witnessing "three strikes, you're
out," he caught one right where the
nose is supposed to be, and it started
on a gentle rise over the pitcher, was
a little higher when it passed second,
and entirely out of sight of the center
fielder, and when last seen was head
ed for Waikapu. Long before the
ball was retrieved, Maher had com
pleted the circuit, and was on the
bench seeking information as to the
cause of delaying the game. The
last play of the game was a clever
bit of fielding again on the part of
Maher, which completely frizzled the
rally which Paia was hatching, and

game of ball.
