Rain in such torrents that only the nearest of the engines could be seen hammered against the fuselage, flooded into the pilot’s cockpit, and dripped down cabin walls. Twice the plane ran through hail and the sound was like wings being torn off. Wild Bucking The wild'y bucking and weav ing plane twisted so that the cabin door flew open. Steward F. S. Yado unbuckled his safety belt and, held Stewardess A. A. Brady, caught the door and pull ed it shut again. So wild was the ride that to unbuckle one’s safe ty belt was to invite a tossing from end to end of the cabin. Capt. L. R. Shaw and co-pilot Hal Wildman found Miami and made passes at the airport, but gales and unbelievably heavy rains blanked it out time after time. Miami was circled for an hour and a half after the storm already had been fought for half an hour. Finally the pilots fought clear and headed for Nassau, where the plane was landed for the night. But troubles were not over. After an early morning takeoff with the same passengers, the plane arrived over Miami’s international airport—and a land ing gear signal indicated that one wheel could not be locked. Passengers who already felt they had stared death in the face were given crash instructions while the plane circled the air port for an hour. Badly fright ened, all were too weak to re peat a rousing ovation and back slapping they had awarded the pilots after the safe landing at Nassau. The bride and groom who re ceived these unexpected thrills on their honeymoon were Mr. and Mrs. Peter J. Pricone of Weathersfield, Conn. An English man, P. G. Smyrk of Johnson Matthey Co., Ltd., London, saw the United States for the first time while being tossetf by the hurricane.

I The Book Of Knowledge i __ (Department: —ANIMAL LIFE) The Hone Family In this family we have man’s faithful friend, the horse, and also the donkey, the wild asses and the zebras. These are all near relatives. The history of the horse and its relatives has been traced back far into the past. Their bones are found in great abun dance in fossil beds. Consequent ly few animals of the past are so well known. I More than a hundred years I ago, some teeth and part of a | skull of an ancient horse were I found in England. After the first 1 discovery of the English ancient | horse, bones and teeth of very similar horses were found in ' New Mexico and ’Wyoming. Fi i nally, a complete skeleton was j discovered of this “dawn horse,” or Eohippus, as it was called. ! Eohippus lived in the forests that covered much of North America long ago. At various times North Amer ica, original home of the horses, was connected with Asia by land, where Bering Strait is now. It is supposed that horses wander er over to Asia by way of Alas ka, later spreading to Europe. Later still, horses spread almost 1 everywhere. Just before the end of the Ice Age, something happened to make the wild horses of North America disappear. What it was no one knows, but they all dis appeared. The sea had washed over the bridge of land connect ing Alaska with Siberia, and no horses could come back to the land of their ancestors. Until the Spanish explorers came to Mexico in the 16th century, none of the Indians had ever seen a horse. Not long after the conquest of Mexico, a number of horses escaped from their owners, and herds developed, spreading north in the course of years. They found good country and soon numbered many thousands. The same thing happened when horses were taken to South America. Let us go back to the period before the Ice Age. After reach ing the Old World, horses spread and multiplied. Those in dif ferent parts grew to be quite unlike each other in appearance. There were at least two species. One of these was heavily built, with big heads, thick necks and stiff, upstanding manes. These coarse, ugly horses lived on the plains of central Asia and on plains and forests of Europe. Up until a few hundred years ago, | Draft mara^tilte^iese^are much used on farms for plowing j herds of these wild horses are said to have lived in the Polish forests, and closely related horses still roam the upland plains of Asia. Przevalski’s horse, named from its discoverer, Nicholas Przevalski, is this type. Sometimes we can see one in the zoo. In North Africa, another type developed. It had long, fine legs; a long, graceful, arched neck; and a long, pointed head. This was the stock from which the Arab and Barbary steeds, famous for their beauty and speed, are descended. After ma ndomesticated horses, through careful breeding and selection, many different types were developed. The heavy cart or draft horses were derived from the European wild horses. Most of the carriage horses and saddle horses are partly of African and partly of European descent. (Copyright, 1946, by the Gro lier Society, Inc., based upon the Book of Knowledge.)
