The news was a pleasant sur-
prise to Firestone who had not
been invited to the board meeting,

signed the pilots to their search
The 15 square mile area was
divided into four sections with
two planes to each section. After.

The planes took off at 10:45
a.m. and were limited to one
hour's searching time.
Quinn's plane, flying at a cruis-
ing speed of 120 mph at 1200 feet,
sighted the "plane wreckage and
parachutes" (four large yellow
and white paper panels arranged
in a square) after 35 minutes.
The C-47 had "crashed" in Cass
Benton Park one and a half miles
south of Northvile Downs.

and message drops were arranged
for the afternoon, but snow flur-
ries cancelled the pans.

for searching because they are
able to land in a- small area, he
