MILESCITYMAN
FORCED TO LAND
BECAUSE OF FOG
| *
Plane Burst Into Flames as It
Hit Ground; Body Burned
Beyond Recognition
AVIATOR WAS FLYING ALONE
Witnesses Believe He Mistook
Hill for Level Field; Plane
Is Destroyed
Regent, N. D., Oct. 11.—(/P) —Forced
down in a dense fog, Thomas Btrick
ier, Miles City, Mont., Mamer Air
Transport pilot, was killed late yes
terday when his plane crashed to the
ground and burst into flames eight
miles northwest of here.'
The body was burned beyond recog
nition and identification was made
from laundry found in a traveling
bag. He was flying alone from Aber
deen, 8. D.. to Miles City.
Strickler’s plane was sighted near
here about 5 p. m., and witnesses ob
served he was attempting to make a
landing, but appeared to be having
difficulty. He made several attempts
and finally landed on a hill which it
is believed he mistook for a level
field. An explosion occurred as the
plane struck the ground and it burst
into flames. Nothing but the twisted
frame remained erf the ship.
Laundry found in a traveling bag
carried his initials. A phone call
was made to Aberdeen by the coroner
who was informed Strickler left that
city about 1:45 p. m. yesterday for
Miles City.
. The body is being held at an under-
establishment, at New Eng
land. Word was received from Miles
City that a representative of -the air
port company there was on his way
to take charge of the remairs. Cor
oner 8. W. Hill of Hettinger county
said no inquest would be held as the
death was obviously accidental.
“Strickler was not flying a Mamer
Transport schedule and I don’t know
just what the purpose of his flight
was,” said A. O. Stack, St. Paul, man
ager of Mamer Air Transport there.
“The reports which I received oi
the accident said he was flying a
Consolidated Air Transport plane and
carried no passengers.
“Mamer air transport keeps two
pilots at Miles City to fly from there
to St. Paul. Strickler was on that
run but the other pilot. Prank Wiley,
was the one scheduled to bring the
regular plane into St. Paul.
"Wiley.” stack continued, “did not
take off from Miles City Friday be
cause of bad flying weather. 1 don’t
know what flight Strickler was mak
ing.” •
Strickler was well-known in avi
ation circles in St. Paul, having flown
here for some time. He was a mem
ber of the 109th aero squadron Min
nesota National Guard and has been
with Mamer Air Transport since its
organization. r ,
Before taking up aviation, he prac
ticed law in St. Paul for a number
of years. He and his wife and two
children, who survive, spent last sum

SALE OF ARMORY IS
CONFIRMED BY PUGH
Hughes and Little Bid at Sher
iff's Sale Held Only Valid
Offer Received
An order confirming the sale of
the armory property at Broadway and
Second streets to E. A. Hughes and
C. B. Little, September 22, was issued
by Judge Thomas H. Pugh at Dick
inson Friday.
The confirmation order overrules
the objections made to the sale by
the State of North Dakota and other
defendants interpleaded and by F. O.
Hellstrom. Copies of the order were
received here today by Zuger and
Tlllotaon, representing Hughes and
Little, by A. T. Faber, representing
Hellstrom, and by Harold D. Shaft, of
tha attorney general’s department,
who represented the state.
The sale was made under a judg
ment rendered by the Burleigh county
district court, which directed a sale
for cash. Hellstrom objected in part
to confirmation on the ground that
Elizabeth Ann Falley had offered a
better bid than Hughes and Little.
In commenting on this objection and
overruling it, Judge Pugh says:
"The bid of Elizabeth Ann Falley
was no bid, because it was not lor
cash. The sheriff had a right to re
ject it as not coming within the di
rections and provisions of the execu
tion which constituted his authority
to hold the sale; she makes no objec
tion to the confirmation of the sale.
It will also be noted that the amount
of said bid was not tendered in court
at this hearing.
"It was unnecessary in the notice
of sale,’’ continues the order, "to
state the amount of the lien of Little
and Hughes, but. In any event, the
amount thereof is clearly stated in
the notice of sale. The notice clearly
states time, place and property to be
sold. No one could be, and no one
claims to be., misled by the notice No
bettor bid Is offered now, nor is there
any proof of even the possibility of a
better bid being offered If resale Is
made; nor does the party tender Into
court the expenses of the sheriff In
making the sale or a resale.
“One other objection will be noted,
namely, that the court was without
jurisdiction to decree the sale of the
premises. It is not disputed that the
court had jurisdiction over the par
ties and the property Involved. This
being true, it had power to dispose
of toe controversy. There was no
other method suggested to toe minds
of either counsel or of toe court' In
which toe matter could finely be dis
posed of than the ordering of the
sale of the property, with permission
to those interested to make redemp
tion.”
At the tone of toe sale Hughes and
Little bid 17,725.48, toe amount of. a
lien of $12,988.49 and of a $5,000 ben
of toe state, as adjusted by interest,
while Elizabeth Anne Falley bid $1&-
725.45, but not In cash as was toe bid
of Hughes and Little.

COLUMBIA FLIES
TOCROYDEN FIELD
FROM SCILLY ISLES
Made Only One Stop in First
Transatlantic Jump by
Canadidan
Croydon, England, Oct. 11.— (IP)
The transatlantic airplane Columbia
completed its voyage from Harbor
Grace, N. F., and landed on the
Croydon airfield at 3:53 p. m. (10:53
EST) today.
An overnight landing in the Scilly
Islands was the only break in the
first successful Canadian flight across
the Atlantic ocean.
The Columbia took off from Tresco
at 1:02 p. m. (8:02 a. m. EST) today
and traversed a course over Land’s
End, Penzance and Plymouth.
The Canadian-American airmen,
Captain J. Errol Boyd and Lieutenant
Harry Connor, set their veteran
transatlantic plane dowfe before a
large crowd, which- had bcwwwerTlng
steadily since noon. r
Charles A. Levine, who,, with Clar
ence Chamberlin, flew the Columbia
on h?r first transatlantic crossing,
was first to greet the. aifmen.
Took Off Thursday
The Columbia took off from Har
bor Grace, N. F., Thursday at 11:20
a. m. (New York time) and was set
down, balked but undefeated, at
about 11:30 a. m. (New York time) on
the tiny islet. Thus she completed
her ocean hop in- 24 hours and 10
minutes. The Journey from Tresco to
Croydon today was made in two
hours, 53 minutes. '
Hie whole time of flight from Har
bor Grace to Croydon was 27 hours
and 3 minutes.
Landing at Tresco the aviators last
evening informed Major A. A. Dor
rien-Smith, governor of the Scilly
Islands, that they had encountered a
hurricane over the Atlantic ana had
flown the latter part of their trip,
from the region of Fastnet, extreme
southern tip of Ireland, to Roecoe,
through a dense fog. They had dis
covered only a few minutes before
that their fuel supply had been cut
off by a stoppage in the pipe line.
They decided instantly to seek a
landing place and sighted Tresco,
which is one of the seward of the
Bcllly group. The same break, occur
ring some minutes earlier, might have
meant a disastrous end of the voyage.
Meet Headwinds
"We ran into cross winds early
yesterday,’’ continued Capt. Boyd.

ster for Interment
MANY SEE PROCESSION
Scenes of Intense Emotion Mark
Progress; Women Faint
on Streets
London, Oct. 11.—(/P)—In the bril
liant sunshine of a chill October
morning the 48 bodies of victims of
the R-101's destruction in France last
Sunday morning today were taken
from Westminster hall to commerce
their last Journey to one huge grave
at Cardington.
Promptly at 10 a. m., the funeral
procession, headed by a Royal Air
force band, commenced the march
through silent streets which had been
closed to ordinary traffic and which
were lined by thousands of people
who were unable to pass the coffins
yesterday when they lay in state in
Westminster.
Comrades of the dead men
marched in the procession with high
officials of the air council, army
council, and the admiralty. Premier
MacDonald, the dominion premiers,
representatives of foreign powers and
other prominent persons joined the
cortege as It moved slowly through
the respectful regretful crowds to
Euston station for transport to Bed
ford.
Another solemn procession occurred
at Bedford where remains of the men
were escorted to their last resting
place at the nearby air field, from
where they started one week ago to
night on the trip which had such a
tragic ending. \ ... - 1 ,
It was nearly noon when The pro
cession reached the Euston railway
terminal where the dead were en
trained.
Many Persons Collapse
The route had been long and tor
tuous. There were many scenes of
intense emotion. The police were
kept busy removing numbers of faint
ing women from the crowd. At one
point half a dozen women collapsed.
At Cardington workmen labored
throughout the night to complete the
grave, which was built with a sloping
side so the coffins may be carried in
to rather than lowered in it. Con
siderable quantities of wreaths and
other floral tributes have arrived
from all parts of Britain and th*»
continent and an unoccupied shop
was hired to hold them until they
could be placed on the grave.
Dr. Hugo Eckener. commandant oi
the Graf Zeppelin, who arrived in
London yesterday evening, will act as
special representative of the German
government as well as of the Zep
pelin company at the ceremoibes to
day. He will lay a wreath on the
grave at Cardington for the German
government.
Forty-eight aluminum name plates,
cut from the same metal as went in
to construction of the R-101. were
ready today to be placed on coffins
of the R-101’s dead at Cardmgton.
The names of 14 victims who have
been identified are inscribed on the
plates, but the remaining 34 bear the
simple inscription: “To the memory
