J he navy added its first victim to the death roll of the air yesterday, when Ensign Wil liam D. Billingsley was hurled from a disabled biplane 1,01)0 feet in the air and fell straight as a plummet into the depths of Chesapeake bay. Lieut. John A. Towers, chief of the navy aviators clung to the hurtling wreck that fol lowed Ins comrades course Irom sky to water and escaped death almoxt nn'iacu lously. Ensign Rillirvgslev, in a biplane that had lieen converted into a hydroaero plane by the adoption of pontoons, with Lieutenant lowers as a passenger, lelt the aviation grounds at the naval acad emy here yesterday morning to fly to Claiborne, gome IS miles across the bay. About 10 miles down the bay, a guest of wind struck the fragile aeroplane. Ensign Billingsley was thrown forward across the steering gear, which was dis abled. The front planes of the craft fell and it started like a dead bird for the blue expanse of water LflOO feet be low. As it dropped, the pilot was cata pulted out, and turning over and over, his body out-speeded t lie disabled ma chine toward the water. Wlicn the aeroplane started on its dive for the bay. Lieutenant Towers clung desperately to one of the uprights between the. planes. Although at times his body swung clear of the rapidly falling airship, he maintained his hold with hand and arm almost wremhed apart. After falling 'ahout 000 feet, the biplane turned a, complete somersault and for a moment the force of the fall was broken. Striking the bay, it car ried Lieutenant Towers beneath the wa ter but rose to the surface immediately. The aviator tearing loose the lashing of one of the planes, bound himself fust to a pontoon. Within a few minutes he was taken off by men from motor boat kept on the bay by the navy avia tors for use in just such accidents. At the naval academy hospital, Lieu tenant Towers, almost in a state of nervous collapse, told the-story of his fall. "Just before the accident," he said, '"I looked at the altitude dial, and it showed that we were at a height of 1.625 feet.!

R. hall with an attendance of 31 of the 218 members who are though to still sur vive.

An incipient tire among waste mate rial at the rear of the Smith A Cum ings store in the Brown block on North Main street called out the entire fire department at 1:45 o'clock this morning when Fred E. Steele, who had discov cred the blare from bis bedroom window on West street, turned in an alarm from box 21 near Depot souare. The firemen reached the block in time to smother the little blaze with a single hand chem hal tank, but with much more of i headway it is likely that they would have been confronted with a 'difficult task. Communicating from a pile of boxes and refuse at the rear of the block near the Scampini building, the fire had eat en its way into the back side of the store and had cracked a couple of win down when the firemen arrived. The damage is said to be insignificant, al though the store waa partially filled with smoke this morning when the proprie tors came around to open up. The blare waa first noticed bv Mr. Steele, who was awakened by the re flections of the flames as they played a now me ceiling in nis sleeping room ne 'nurrieuiy. nressea ana alter ascer taining its location, he ran to box 21 and nulled m the alarm. Meanwhile John Kinslie, a rail man, who conducts Jack's lestaurant on Depot square had just closed his plce ot business and was on nis way nome wnen he, too. saw the fire as he looked through the alley between the Brown and Scampini blocks. Mr. Emslie heard the alarm sound am so he industriously set about to pusi the blazing boxes away from the build ing. Officer George K. Carle was also early at the scene of the -fire and Offi cer 'John W. Dineen went to the box at Depot square to direct the firemen when they came past. The origin of the fire cannot be defi nitely explained, although the boxes and irates piled at the rear of the store were tilled with inflammable material. it is said, and a spark from almost any quarter would easily ignite the pile. 56 REWARDED WITH DIPLOMAS Spaulding High School's 20th Class Was Gradu-, ated Last Evening ADDRESS DELIVERED BY PRES.
