Sandusky Register Star News (Newspaper) - June 19, 1946, Sandusky, Ohio � -  -^---------[--[----�--;-. -�- I 41 Resume Flight To Europe In Second Plane After First Is Crash-Landed HARTFORD, CONN., June 19 (UP)-Forty-one passengers took off for Europe in a second Pan-American Constellation early today after seven breathless minutes within "an arms length of hell" when an engine burnerf' off their first plane and a eteel-nerved pilot crash-landed it at nearby Willimantic, Conn. Only one of the 42'passengers aboard the first Constellation,' the New York, declined to continue the trip aboard the second, the London. The Rev. Cornelius Curtln, 55, of Sydney, Mont., cancelled his reservation and caught a train for New York. * The hero was cool, level-headed Capt. Samuel II. Miljer, who in a split second decision set the plane down without injury to any of its occupants. Among the passengers were Laurence Olivier, British acfor, and his red haired wife, beautiful Vivian Ldlgh, the star of �'"Gone With the Wind." "We thought we were gone," said Olivier. "It looked like the end," said Miss Leigh. "It was kind of a close call," said Father James O'Connor, 33, of Merrill, Ore., one of six priests enroute to Ireland. "I thought we ware all goners." The plane, one of the largest and fastest of the commercial airliners, took off from LaGuarUia field shortly after 5 p. m., cdt. yesterday. It was bound for Shannon, Eire, with the first stop scheduled at Gander, Newfoundland. J At 5:58 p. m. Capt. Miller, whose home is in White Plains, N. Y., radioed La Guardia field that his right engine was on fire and he was returning. In their seats behind Miller's cabin, the spellbound passengers-actors, singers, businessmen, a bartender and his wife, who had just begun to relax-watched the flames stream back from the burning engine, and lick toward their windows. There was no panic. The passengers sat silent, trusting the man at the controls to do the best he could to save them. He did. Ahead in the cabin. Miller was turning back. The engine burned out of the wing and fell on a farm near Plainfield, Conn. The pilot cut out an engine on the other side to relieve the pressure on the weakened wing. Through a hole in a cloud, Miller saw a landing field below him. He headed,toward it, but saw it was too small. , He then decided to try to make Hartford and spotted the field at Willimantic, 25 miles east of here, circled it, decided it was large enough, and tried to lower his landing gear. The fire had damaged the hydraulic system. The landing gear was locked. Miller radioed the field below and told them he was going to crash land. He landed the plane smoothly on its belly on the soft grass beside the runway in center field. "We were within an arm's length of hell," one of the passengers said as ground crews swept around them. "That pilot's good, steady arm saved us. He never wavered a minute." THE WEATHER Occasional rain and cool tonight and Thursday. Low temperature tonight 54�. High Thursday, lower 60's. Moderate easterly winds. THE Register Ar�r� TKuH Q Century in Your Service- VSKY Star-News -iln Institution ofProgrm and Traditiom ISOCRAXES- A wtie Athenian who lived from 436 to 338 B.

United PrMi SANDUSKY, OHIO, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 19, 1946 Associated Press Price Five Cents Bidault Elected President Of France Wife Is Boss In This Home After "Treaty" CHICAGO, June 19 (UP)- Mrs. Joseph Bairile iiad legal assurance today that she is boss in her own home. She had it in writing, too. Mrs. Barrlle agreed yesterday to let her husoand come home after he had offered and signed a "peace treaty" in which he made all the concessions. He proposed it during a court hearing on her separate mainterancc suit. Here's what ho pr'-mlsed: 1-He will not gamble, not even maicing a amalJ bet on a horse. 2-He will turn ever his weelcly pay checlc to his wife and will not complain about the allowance she gives him. 3-He will lake his wile out twice a wceJc. 4-He will attend church every Sunday. 5-He will not leave the house without his wife or children unless he has her permission. 6-He will not see a party responsible for his present position. (This point was not explained in court and the "party" was not identiiied.) 7-Mrs. Barriie has the right to evict him from their home if he violates any of the pledges. Judge Michael Peinberg, IhotfgHt' Barrile's offer was sensible and dismissed the suit. Barriie went home happy with the wife he married in 1925 and their three children. He didn't thinlc he was on the losing end of th j "treaty." "Why did 1 gel out.ot it?" he asiced.

He had a $100 ticket to the Louis-Conn prize fight. PARIS, June 19 (UP)- French sources said today that they believed a full dress 21-nation peace conference may be called for July 15. These sources said they believed the Big Four foreign ministers session probably would continue another two weeks, leaving an in-| terval of about 10 days before the 21-nation conference if it is summoned. Some hope that Russia is yielding in its opposition to an immediate peace conference was seen in a reference made by Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov to the full dress conference during discussion of Italian reparations. Molotov suggested that the 21-nation conference decide on reparation claims against Italy by Yugoslavia, Greece and Albania. The fact that Molotov made this suggestion was regarded as indicating he at least is thinking about the possibility of the full dress conference wliich he formerly opposed adamantly until complete harmony was reached among the Big Four. The foreign ministers deputies today virtually completed the skeleton drafts of the Bulgarian, Hungarian and Finnish peace treaties. The draft of the Romanian treaty already had been approved by the deputies. The fact that yesterday's reparation^ discussion produced nothing but the same old arguments and a Soviet refusal of a British compromise plan dampened earlier restrained hopes of breaking tba conference stalemate. FLOOD IS RUINING SOUTHERN OHIO WHEAT AND CORN COLUMBUS, June 19 (UP) The condition of the swollen Scioto river today was described by U. S.

(AP Wirephoto) LIMITS ON HIGH COURT PROPOSED BY 2 SENATORS Fear 700 Perished In Blast CELLE, GERMANY, June 19 (UP)-Military authorities reported today that more than 100 workers-Germans and displaced persons including Russians - might have been killed in an explosion at the biggest underground ammunition dump in the British zone. Flames which touched off the explosion crackled uncontrolled today through the  dump in the Hanigsen salt mine near Celle and 20 miles northeast of Hanover. Military officials said the fire this afternoon was creeping toward 3,000 tons of all types of German artillery ammunition stored in the salt mine. All non-essential persons were evacuated from the area last night by British troops. Eighty Germans and 23 displaced persons were underground wh�n the explosion occurred. "Authorities feared all were lost. At the time of the explosion, an estimated 10,000 tons of ammunition were in the mine. Explosives were being carri-ed from underground storage chambers by the workers under the direction of British officers. APPROACH OF A TORNADO WASHINGTON, June 19 (UP)-! Two Senators today proposed a cpnstitutional amendment to forbid any  President from appointing more than three Supreme Court justices. The plan, if in effect now, would force four of the late Presideni Roosevelt's appointees off the high bench. The ousted justices would include Robert H. Jackson, now in the midst of a bitter public feud with Justice Hugo L. Black. The proposal, sponsored by Sens. James O. Eastland, D., Miss, and Styles Bridges, R. N. H., was given little chance of adoption, particularly in time to affect present members of the court As a constitutiofial amendment, it would require approval of two thirds of each house of Congress and ratification by three fourth �� of the slate legislatures. That process usually takes several' years.
