Continental Flight Ends Within
Hour of Finish.
(By Associated Press)
SAN DIEGO, Calif., Nov. 28.-In-
stead of holding a new junior
transcontinental flight record, Ger-
ald Nettleton, 20-year-old Toledo,
O., aviator, was enrolled today as a
member of the famed "Caterpillar
Nettleton made a 10,000-foot par-
achute drop to escape from a blind-
ing rain and snowstorm which en-
compassed his plane near here
Thursday as he was within less
than an hour of finishing his trans-
continental flight.
He drifted gently to earthnear
a ranch house as his abandoned
Mane crashed a mile away. Except
for being rain-soaked and extreme-
ly cold, Nettleton was unhurt. He
made his way to a ranch house and
topped off his adventure with a big
Thanksgiving dinner.
"The weather was 'sloppy'-rain,
fog and snow," said Nettleton. "I
couldn't see 10 feet. The instru-
ments 'froze' and since I couldn't
see there was only one thing to do
and that was to jump.
"I fought the weather as long as
I dared. I hated to leap, but that
was my only alternative. So I lev-
eled the plane off, cut the switch,
closed the throttle and rolled out
the door."
l At the time young Nettleton leap-
ed he had about 40 miles to go in

aed the school day from the ar-

ren, Professor Olson said.
One o' the features of the Nurs-
ery school is the observational bal-
ponies which have been built around
the class rooms. Parents and other
visitors can sit in these and observe
the activities of the class without
interrupting the procedure.
"An important part of the pro-
gram of the school is the systematic
records to be used in research
work, " Professor Olson said. This
has been recognized as a major
function of the unit from its ine
ception, he added.
