Thomas Ash, jr.. World War aviator,
who gave up an attempt to fly the |
Moyle-Alien monoplane over the route ;
this Summer, expressed the opinion
the airmen were lost somewhere off the ■
Aleutians. Ash arrived here yesterday j
from the Orient as a member of the
crew of the liner President Madison.
Believes Motor Exploded.
“I believe the motor blew up before
they reached Dutch Harbor. Alaska.”
said Ash. “They had equipped the
plane with a supercharger which
stepped up the motor from 425 to 525
horsepower and I believe the strain
was too much.”
Ash. who plans another attempt to
span the Pacific in a new plane next
May. said the left wing of the Moyle-
Alien ship was warped and "you had to
fight it all the time." He said the
ship used about 25 gallons cf fuel an
hour, instead cf 22 as estimated by
Movie. , i
Ash said changes the two flyers me.de
on the ship before they .started the
flight cut down their cruising radius
several hundred miles, although it made
the plane easier to handle and some
what faster.
One person refused to admit the men
were lost. Miss Frances Bresson, River
side. Calif.. Moyle's fiancee, who came
here to greet him when he completed
the flight, insisted they would be found.
As she sat in her hotel she fought
back fears and bolstered the hopes rac
ing through her mind, often repeating,
half to herself, “I know they’re safe. I
know they'll come in.”

for death before taking off from Sa

They left with newspaper men and
friends’ certificates to prove they had
taken off on a transpacific flight. These
. were made with a view to simplifying the
liquidation of their life insurance poli

heard from again.

Cash, personal possessions and every
other article of value, were disposed of.
They stripped themselves of everything

as having been engaged to Miss Miller.
Subsequent to the take-off Mrs. Allen
announced she and Allen had beccme
Didn’t Say Good-By.
Moyle and Allen were without cash 1
before they left. A diamond ling, a :
gold ring, tie pins, fountain pens, suit
eases and clothing were distributed
among these who had helped them to
make ready for the flight.
"See you again,” said Moyle to sev
eral American reporters as he climbed
into the plane. A moment later the j
roar of the motor made further con- i
versation impossible and they were off
without actually saying good-by.

Ballistic Expert Is Served in
Richmond—Denies Making
Personal Statement.
Special Dispatch to The Star.
RICHMOND, Va., September 10.—
Dr. Calvin H. Goddard, Northwestern
University ballistic expert, was tagged
by a process server here while at the
; American Legion luncheon, service cf
the papers being preparatory to a suit
in the Circuit Court of Richmond for
! $750,000 damages, filed t v Herbert M.
Campbell, acquitted defendant in the
Mary Baker murder case in Arlington
County. Motion for Judgment was
j filed shortly after the papers w’ere i
; served.
i It is claimed in the action that Prof,
j Goddard, in a newspaper interview I
i appearing in Washington, was quoted ,
|as saying that Campbell’s gun fired 1
i the shots found in the body of Mary j
i Baker, and that he made the statement
that “If Campbell’s gun was never out i
of his possession, there can be no ques- i
tlon as to who committed the murder.” j
The further claim is made that Dr. i
Goddard gave “false, untrue and ma- i
licious report,” and that photo p-aphs
used in the evidence were not >'cperly
It is thought probable thi it will
be asked that the case be tr sferred i
Ito another State, as GodSarc is net i
a resident of Virginia, and th alleged
i statements attributed to him ’ ere not
. made In this State.
Dr. Goddard. In commenting briefly
, on the motion for judgment by Camp
bell. said that his testimony at the
: trial consisted of giving only the find
ings of his laboratory In Chicago. He
declared that he made no personal
st»tement. Further than this, Dr. God
dard declined to discuss the filing of
the suit. The case cannot be reached
for trial in the City Circuit Court un
til November, and it is believed unlike
ly that It will be taken up before the
beginning of the new year.
