Hawker in his attempted irans-AUantic flight. The London Daily Mail announces lliat it intends ,in the unfortunate, event tl'.nt Harry G, Hawker and Commander Grieve have lost their lives in nn attempted trans-Atlantic flight', to donate ten thousand pounds to their next of kic in pro- portions that Hawker and Grieve had agreed to divide the prize of- j fered for the flight. This disposition j will not interfere with the contest which is still open. Attacks ou the British admiralty for its lack of co-operation with Harrj Hawker have become more intense since the virtual certainty of the daring aviator's death "some- where in the Atlantic." Commander Bellairs, M. P., said today: "When we reflect that the admiralty with hundreds of ships allowed ;he Germans to escape at Jutland, the absurdity of two de- stroyers and a half-manned sloop searching for Hawker is obvious. The admiralty has shown a dread- ful of imagination." 1'IRST MAN TO KICK K HCTiioCL'Ttox IN OKLAHO- MA xo RKIMUUVK T. Ri Braucht Final Sparks from the P.
