Man Hunts Out Of
Season; Results: 1
Squirrel,_$17 Fine
Because he just couldn't resist tak-
ing a shot at a teasing fox squir-
rel, and because the open season
on squirrels ended on Oct. 24, Frank
Shingledecker, Kensington Drive, is
a sadder but wiser hunter.
Thanksgiving was a lovely day for
eating. Accordingly Shingledecker ate.
Finiding that the weight of the food
hampered his well being, and feeling
that a little fresh air would drive
the grogginess from his system, he
took the air, the air in Pittsfield
township to be exact. Guarding him-
self against any possible attack, or
squirrel, he took his gun along.
Reports do not state whether or
not the little varmint actually went
after Shingledecker, but when Wil-
liam Corson, local conservation ofri-
cer, came upon the culprit, he was
defending himself vigorously, so vig-
orously, in fact, that after the firing
of only one shot, the squirrel came

tumbling to his feet just as the arm
of the law walked up.
Shingledecker did not enter a plea
of self defense yesterday when he was
arraigned in justice court, and Judge
Jay H. Payne was forced to find him
guilty on circumstantial evidence.
Shingledecker paid a fine and costs
of $17.65 and lost his trusty de-
fender, his gun.

"-Yes, the career of the aviator
offers enticing moments but the
chances of being 'washed out' and of
-seeing long-cherished illusions shat-
tered even on an advanced stage of
the preparation and training are
West-bound aerial transportation
to Honolulu, following regular and
frequent schedules for mail and pas-
senger service, has been, for a com_-
paratively long time, taken for grant-
ed by the public as a common-place
necessity rather than a miracle of
luxury created by science. Also, that
route lying between China and Ma-
nila, a distance of 2,200 miles, has
already been made a regular, much-
used artery of commercial air trans-
But until the early fall of this
year, there still remained one link
in the chain of trans-Pacific aviation
routes to be spanned before commer-
cial aeronautics could consider the
last air frontier of the Pacific re-
moved -that link connecting Hono-
lulu and Guam, and covering a dis-
tance of 2,200 miles.
Until October 5th of this year the
idea of the commercial use of such a
route remained purely an abstraction
to be talked about rather than to be
acted upon. On that day, a -crew of
seven Pan-American Airways offi-
cers climbed into their clipper after
the necessary preparation for a test
flight which was to carry them from
Alameda. Calif. to Honolulu (2,300
miles), to Wake Island (1,300 miles),
and to Guam (1,400 miles).
It was a festive day for many in
that part of the country, and even
the interests of stamp-collectors had
received attention; covers which bore
the stamps, "First Flightl Est-Boun
Bound Guam" had been distributed
in good numbers among the crew,
and are now drawing the envious
price of 25 dollars from avid stamp-
collectors and hero-worshippers.
On the crew was Mr. Lodeesen,
functioning as junior flying officer.
A native of Holland, Mr. Lodeesen
graduated from the aeronautical en-
gineering school of the University in

1930, and studied at the United
States School of Aviation, at Pensa-
cola, Fla., for one year. In 1931, he
performed one year of active service
as ensign aviator, in San Diego,
Following this, he returned to
study at the University, received his
master's degree in aeronautical
transportation, and accepted an ap-
pointment as apprentice-pilot with
the Pan-American Airways, at Mi-
ami. In 1935, he received the coveted
post of junior-pilot for the trial
flight of the China Clipper.
(By The Associated Press)
American flying clipper ships,
pointing at a slice of the billions of
dollars in the oriental trade markets,
will nose their way into the crowded
China seas some time after Nov. 22.
That is the date announced by

Postmaster General James A. Farley
for the first transpacific air mail
flight from San Francisco to Manila.
The aerial successors of the Yan-
kee Clippers, groomed with infinite
patience and care for the task of
hauling mail, express and people
across the Pacific, are expected by
their owners, Pan American Airways.
to accomplish several objectives:
They will shrink the time-map of
the world.
They will give the United States
a powerful bid for the fiercely-com-
petitive oriental market.
They will bring a new era of good-
will between the United States and
her Far Eastern neighbors.
They will bring the Territory of
Hawaii, the isolated islands of U. S.
Oceania, the Commonwealth of the
Philippines closer to the American
