Eight hundred state penitentiary SYNOPSIS: Max Conrad of Winona has gone from Minneapolis to New York as he continues on his trip to Europe alone in a tiny cabin plane to visit his family. After having his radio compass repaired in Grand Rapids, Mich., he headed for New York, but bad weather forced him to land in Akron, Ohio. The hop to New York was later uneventful. Today, Conrad prepares for his next hop to Old Town, Maine, but his first experience with the Atlantic Ocean weather is bitter, and he doesn't make it. CHAPTER THREE DAWN of that Sept. 1, my third day in New York, broke hot and humid. I scanned the weather re- ports again and saw that I could expect numerous thun- derstorms along the first three or four hundred miles of my route, but that after that I would have good flying. sed up just enough to take me to Old Town, Maine. Some of the reporters 1 had talked to the previous afternoon, apparently convinced that I really meant to make the flight, had come to see me off. They wanted pictures and more stories, so I delayed my preparations and take-off until they were satisfied. Then, promptly at noon, I took off to keep the rendezvous with a movie, news and television camera plane that had been arranged for me. {inmates followed a half million dollar prison fire last night with cell-wrecking disorders that were quelled only after guards sprayed their quarters with tear gas three times. The outbreak apparently was kept to a minimum by prompt action. Guards herded prisoners quickly into their cells when 14 The little Piper climbed quickly through the haze that still swaddled the field, and I immediately felt at ease. The ceiling over New York was almost unlimited, but visibility was restricted to about three or four miles. I put 33-OK on her course and relaxed, waiting for the camera plane to catch up with me according to plan. Suddenly the Teterboro tower started calling me. The camera plane had taken off on schedule, but poor visibility had prevented her pilot from finding me and he had called the tower, which in turn called me to de- termine my position. The three of us, two planes and the tower, kept the frequency hot for several minutes before we decided that the only solution was for me to return to Teterboro, rendezvous with the camera plane, and then make a fresh start. Dutifully, I returned to the airport, contacted the camera plane, and started out once more U.S. Prosperity Rests on World Trade, Belief Free and Stable Exchange of Goods Held Necessary WASHINGTON ability of the United States to avoid depres- sion will largely determine whether the world can achieve a free and stable exchange of goods and money, the International Monetary 1 DETROIT LAKES, Minn.

This occurred about two hours after an unexplained fire roared through the institution's metals olant, destroying it and over one million license plates destined for use on Washington state automo- biles in 1954. Damage from the fire was esti- mated by Deputy Warden Al Rem- boldt at half a million dollars. No disorders accompanied the blaze, t started after the plant had been dosed down for the evening. Officials were prepared, how- on my course, the camera plane flying to my left and a for unrest and acted quickly little above, taking pictures of 33-OK against the New York skyline. We proceeded that way for about 20 miles, and then the press plane left me. I never did get to see the pictures. Good To Bo Alive, Aloft After the camera plane had disappeared into the haze behind me, I suddenly realized that I was really on my way and felt tremendously invigorated. I climbed to about feet and looked about. It was a beautiful late-summer day. Below me, the whole earth was shroud- ed in haze, but above and ahead the sky was clear blue and completely cloudless. It was good to be alive anc aloft! It wasn't until I reached Springfield, Mass., that the first of the reported thunderstorms began to lower in the sky ahead of me. I decided to veer off to my right, circling the storm, and fly along the coast, where the cooling effect of the ocean would tend to make the air smoother. With luck, I figured I could outfly the local weather and get into the cool, clear skies I knew lay beyond. I wanted to avoid rough weather, because the time I had spent with the reporters in New York had kept me from getting all my gear lashed down. The plane was so crowded that I couldn't very well do the job in flight, and I had no particular desire to be brained by bouncing pieces of equipment, as might very well happen if I got into turbulent air. A tail wind helped me make good time, and I was probably doing 160 miles an hour ground speed. The course I had laid out would ordinarily have taken me about 50 miles to the west of Boston, but I continued to circle to the right of the numerous small thunderstorms as I encountered them, and consequently I got closer and closer to the Atlantic. Atmospherics kept raising hob with my radios until finally, in the vicinity of Boston, the static became so bad that I was unable to use any of the radio ranges. The weather kept getting rougher, too, and I was finding it more and more difficult to avoid the storms that were edging in on me. Before I quite realized what had hap- pened, I found myself about 50 miles northeast of Boston and some 20 miles out over a gray, choppy Atlantic. when the dining room melee broke out. Back in their cells, the men apparently became annoyed, Rem- boldt said, because the prison's ventilation system failed when the fire burned out part of the power circuits. Soon the convicts began hurling materials and abuse out the barred doors of their cells.

The possibility of "even a rather small decline in American busi- ness activity" gives concern to many nations, the report said. It emphasized that the decline of U.S. military spending need not neces- sarily cause a business dip, and noted that the U.S. government is committed to take vigorous mea- sures to combat any slump.
