He covered a distance of about 2;*
miles in f>t minutes.
Very few people saw Ward begin
his flight from the aviation field, his

the airman made Ijls return flight.
Leaving the aviation field, he flew

LYON WILL MOVE
I IN HUNTER CASE
(Joes (o Washington to Seck Kurl)'
Decision in Xovf Famous I.aureus
.1 Fr?ser Lyon, attorney general of
South Carolina, left for Washing
ton Saturday to file with the I'nited
States supreme court notice of mo
tion to dismiss or affirm the Wash
Hunter case from I.aureus county.
Hunter was convicted In Greenwood
county on the charge of killing Eldred i
Copeland in Laurens county. He was '
sentenced to eight years in the peni
An appeal was taken to .he South
Carolina supreme court, on the
1 grounds that the Greenwood county
I court had no jurisdiction as the klll
i ing was in Enureus couuty. The su
preme court ainnned the verdict of
the lower court. Pending an appeal
to the United States supreme court,
the remlttur in the case was stayed.
The case was next appealed to the
i United States supreme court.
The gist of the defendant's con
tentions in his appeal was that he
; was denied the right of being tried
j in the county in which the alleged
crime was committed. Mr. Lyon ap
! peared before the I'nited States su
preme court with a motion and petl
' tion for certiorari for diminution of
. record. This was to complete the
I record in the case.
The State of South Carolina now
' moves that the supreme court of the
i I'nited States dismiss tin; writ of
error in the case for want of juris
diction because the judgment of the
I supreme court of South Carolina to
which the writ of error was directed
shows that the plaintiff, Wash
Hunter, failed properly to claim tiny
right under the constitution or laws
of the I'nited States. It is asked that
it the writ of error be not dismissed
the judgment of the South Carolina
supreme court be affirmed on the
ground "that although, in the opinion
of this court, the record mny show
that this court has jurisdiction, it is
manifest that the writ of error was
taken for delay only and that the (pies
tlons on which the jurisdiction de
pends iire so frivolous us not to need
! further argument.*'
Should the motion he refused, the
cast- will be argued on its merits.
