Tennessee Makes
'Sit-Downs' Illegal
NASHVILLE, Ten., May 12.-(P)-
The Tennessee legislature passed a
bill today to outlaw "sit-down strikes,"
and sent it to Governor Gordon
The measure provides that when a
person quits his employment, whether
voluntarily or by discharge, he "shall
within a reasonable time thereafter

on strike just as pre-coronation festivities were at their height. Taken at Aldgate, picture shows crowds,
milling and pushing, in vain effort to board an already crowded street car during the midday homeward

Modern Icarus Recounts
His Many Close Escapes
From Death
Though he now knows the thrill of
narrow escapes, spectacular enough
to astonish even Ripley and has a
nodding acquaintanceship with most
of the hospitals from coast to coast,
Irwin Davis, bat-man extraordinary
explained yesterday that but for an
argument over working hours he
might have remained a bank clerk.
Davis admits that soaring with his
wings has no practical value outside
of a possible use in landing spies
during wartime but claims that as a
sport it is unequalled.
Bat-flying is an attempt to take
advantage of the speed gained in fall-
ing and to fly without mechanical aid,'
he said. This speed is considerable
and a number of maneouvers such as
loops are possible.
Wings Are Canvas
Davis' wings, which must withstand
considerable strain, are made of 10-
ounce duck canvas. Leaping from
the plane two miles above the earth,
he is able to sail about three miles
under calm conditions. After an 8,-
000 foot fall he opens the first para-
In his nine years as a jumper,
Davis said he has had to use his
second or emergency parachute only
three times when the first one failed
to open. He confesses - that those
moments were thrilling.
A number of other moments have
been close to tragedy, he said. Most
vivid of all is the memory of an en-
