AVIATOR
(Continued from page 1)
acter,” Col. Gilmore said Monday
morning. “He was undemonstrative, i
bui absolute true blue. He was
singularly free from affectation, and
everybody had a deep affection for j
nlm. His loss creates a gap that
will be hard to filL Pilots, airport i
officials, and his other acquaint- :
ances looked to him as a perfect
type of flying pilot. He was slow to j
make acquaintances, and was ex
tremely fair In all his dealings."
He has been connected with the i
Pan American company since 1924, !
and when the local airport was {
opened In 1929 and the Mexican
Aviation company merged, he was
retained and later made superin
tendent of flying, officials said to
day
“We must pay tribute to the
citizens of Brownsville,” Col. Gil- !
more said. “Those who were visit- j
ors on the field did not rush to i
the scene, but exhibited a praise- !
worthy decorum.
He would not make a statement j
concerning the future of gliding'
here, but Intimated that the club
would continue In operation. ,
Strap Breaks
"As an official of the Pan Amer
ican company, I can make no state
ment. Gliding should continue,” he
said "It mas an unfortunate ac
cident. A man who is hunting ducks
may be killed when a gun explodes
In his face. Gliding Is as safe as
any other sport, and the accident
would not have occurred if the
ecfety strap had not broken.”
The ciasp of the strap was still
buckled when the glider was In
spected after the crash. The ma
chine itself was but slightly dam
aged as it fell slowly, landed softly,
and turned over on Its back.
Snyder has to his credit thou
sands of hours of flsing. and was
considered one of the best airplane
pilots in the country. He was a
resident of Brownsville, having
married March 16, 1929 in Mexico,
bringing his bride here to live.
He Is survived by his wife and
mother, the latter living near De
troit. his former home.
An official of the department of
commerce, division of aviation, was
a visitor in Brownsville last week,
and made several fltghts in the
local glider, pronouncing conditions
here perfectly safe. He also gave a
talk on gliding to the members of
the gliding club. Thp exhibition
yesterday was supposed to have been
of similar nature, demonstrating
gliding to interested citizens.
No announcement had been made
Monday morning for burial.

CSpecial to The Herald.)
ALAMO. June 9—The American
Iregion post is w anning to duplicate
the Alamo on one of the city parks
located on the hi;l'iway cf this
town.
The building when completed will
cost about $7,000 and plans are be
ing drawn by R. L. Volger. architect
Most of this money has already been
raised. As soon as the plans are
completed the building will be start
ed.
Besides being used for a meeting
place for Legion Post, the build

in India to enable meteorologists to
study weather conditions for the
guidance of pilots of dirigibles
