Pilot Crashes at Wayne Airport

DETROIT, Dec. 5.-(P)-Lowell R.
Bayles, 31-year-old speed pilot, was,
killed Saturday in an effort to break
the world's speed record. He had

streaked down is a long drive tc
start his first lap over the three-
kilometer course at Wayne County
Airport when the plane roiled over
twice in the air, dived into the
ground and burst into flames with
a violent explosion.
Bayles was hurled through a wire
fence, his body burned beyond rec-
ognition. The engine rolled some
50 feet along the Wabash right-of-
way, and burning remnants of the
plane were scattered over a wide
area. Observers estimated that the
ship was traveling well over 300
miles an hour when the crash came.
Officials See Crash.
The mishap occurred directly in
front of timers and newspapermen,
fragments of the ship narrowly
missing the watchers.
There was no chance for the pilot
to escape, though even when racing
at low altitudes he made it a prac-
tice to wear a parachute. He had
told friends that in the event of
an accident he hoped to zoom suf-
ficiently high to make a parachute

jump possible.
Racing for the mark, Bayles, was
compelled to fly lower than 162 feet
for the sake of accuracy in tim-
ing. Had he been able to right the
plane iomentum might have car-
ried him to a 1,000-foot altitude and
made escape possibe. -
Cause of Accident Unknown.
The cause of the accident prob-
ably never will be known, so com-
plete was the destruction of the
little monoplane. It is likely, how,-
ever', that some portion of the con-
trol system gave way, under 'the
tremendous strain.
He flew a Gee Bee monoplane
driven by a Wasp engine, super-
charged to give nearly 800 horse-
power. A 300-horsepower engine or-
dinarily would be considered large
for such a diminutive ship. It con-,
sisted of very little but the giant
engine, abbreviated wings, a closed
cockpit and the tail surfaces.
Bayles was an experienced racing
pilot, particularly in the small plane,
field. Last September he won the,
Thompson Trophy Race at Cleve-
land, America's premier airplanea
speed classic.
In the summer of 1930 he took
second place in the All-Americana
Flying Derby, which started and
ended in Detroit. Flying a 100-
horsepower plane in this race, he1
made a circuit of the West whicht
took him over hundreds of miles
of hazardous terrain.

Tulane's Green Wave jerked its
football banner to the top of the
mast and stepped on national
championship soil here today by
defeating the Washington S t a te
Cougars, 28 to 14. The crowd of 25,-
000 Tulane rooters got the fright
of their lives when the visitors
drove over a touchdown in three
minutes after the starter's whistle
The score was squared soor, how-
ever, after Capt. Jerry Dalrymple;
had left the sideline bench and took
his post at right end. He rallied
his team and five minutes later Tu-
lane went over the goal line, mak-
ing the score, 7-7.
In the second quarter, the Green
Wave rang up two more touch-
downs, but in the third quarter,
Washington State scored again,
making the score 21 to 14.
In the last quarter, Capt. Dalrym-
ple made his team safe by catch-
ing Zimmerman's pass from the 25-
yard line as he stood behind Wash-
ington State's goal line.
