Blankenship of Missouri Ridge this week received word that C. B. Lambert, a cousin whose home was at Welsch, West Virginia, was instantly killed in an aeroplane acci dent while training for service in the army aviation corps under the in struction of an English birdman who had been sent to this country to as sist in training American aviators. Following is the clipping contain ing the details: Weilsburg, Aug. 3.—When the mo tor of his airplane stopped 300 feet I above the ground during his first flight, C. B. Lambert, of Welch, W. Va., a student at the West Virginia aviation school at Beech Bottom, W. Va., near here, was killed late today. E. h. Frey, a member of the British royal flying corps, detailed as an in structor at the school, was accom panying Lambert and sustained in juries which it is believed will prove fatal. Captain Frey was taken to the North Wheeling hospital and placed on the operating table. He was crush ed and suffered a broken leg. H© re tains consciousness, but cannot talk of the accident. It is believed he -cannot recover, and death is a mat ter of but a few hours. Young Lambert, who was killed, is the 20 year-od son of a prominent citizen of Wech, and was among the first young West Virginians to volun teer for the aviation service when Louis ter for the aviation service when Louis Bennett, Jr., formed the state aviation corps several months ago. About 20 student aviators have been under instruction of Captain Frey for the past two months, their headquarters being the Beech Bot *tom aviation field and school estab lished by Bennett and subsidized by the state. Frequent flights have been made to Wheeling and other nearby -cities, and tonight's tragic is the -first serious mishap that has occured. The accident followed the stopping of the engine of the practice bi plane in which Frey and Lambert were fly ing over Beech Bottom field, being at a comparatively low altitude—300 feet—Frey was unable to volplane to earth, and the machine came crash ing down into a corn field. It was completely torn to pieces. Lambert was caught under the heavy engine, and instantly killed Frey was caught in the wreckage, but not so badly crushed. He was placed aboard a Panhandle traction car and taken to the hospital at Wheeling.—Charles ton Gazette. When Ordering: Ask For "Dry Issue" Order the prohibition edition.
