Planes And Ships Make
Wide Search For Airman
Forced Down Yesterday
Fears Are Felt For Safety
Of Eight Persons Aboard
Transport Plane Lost In
Blizzard
(By Ausrlilfd Press)
Planes and vessels search
ed the sea off New York to
day for the body of Lieuten
ant George McDermott, fifth
flier to die in connection
with the army’s task of car
rying mail.
Enroute to Langley Field,
Virginia, to pick up mail
planes, McDermott and two
other fliers were forced
down amid crashing waves
yesterday off Rockaway
Point.
A navy destroyer picked
up McDermott's companions
weak from exposure.
It could not find McDer
mott nor find the disinte
grating plane.
ANOTHER PLANE
REPORTED LOST
ROCK SPRINGS. Wyoming,
Feb. 24.—Fear for the lives of
eight persons grew today as a wide J
search was organized for a United j
Air Lines transport plane lost in
a raging mountain blizzard and
fog.' " ' *'*~
The plane, carrying five pas
sengers and crew of three from
Salt Lake City toward Cheyenne
failed to reach there on schedule,
and officials said it must have
come down during the night,
probably near here.
This belief hung on the report
of a Japanese section foreman
that the plane frantically calling
fbr directions passed over hia
shack at Emery, Utah, yesterday
afternoon.
He picked up the plane’s dis
tress signal on a short wave .radio,
and rushing from the house, shout
ed it was over Emery, whereupon
the plane roared away into the
blinding blizzard, flying close to
the ground.
DESTROYER OFF

stroyers Bainbridge, McFarland
and Babbitt. The latter vessel
