Jet Passenger Airliner Breaks Record
BALTIMORE (P) -The Boeing
707 airliner hooked a high wind
across the Rockies to the roaring
power of its jet engines yesterday
and carried 52 persons faster than
any large group has ever before
been transported-right up to the
very edge of 700 miles an hour.
Boosted to a ground speed peak
of 698 miles an hour for a few
exhilarating minutes over north-

western Montana, the 707 whistled
in nonstop from Seattle in the re-
cord time-for a transcontinental
flight carrying passengers - ofI
three hours and 48 minutes
Its average speed for the 2,325
miles from Puget Sound to Chesa-
peake Bay, greatly increased by
the tail winds, was 612 miles an
Not once did the 707 itself, mov-
ing within its own layer of air,
exceed the speed of sound.
Its top speed from its own en-

bination hustled the 707 and its
occupants across the Idaho pan-
handle and the Montana tall tim-
ber country actually at a faster
rate than sound can travel.
The 3 hours and 48 minutes were
measured from the start of the
takeoff run at Seattle's Boeing
Field at 10:06 a.m. EST, to the'
time the sweptwing giant darted,
25,000 feet overhead, across the
omnirange radio station at the
edge of Baltimore's Friendship In-
Exactly at 2:02 p.m.-2,325 miles
and just three hours and 56 min-
utes away from Seattle-the sleek
queen of tomorrow's air fleets
touched wheels gently down on
Friendship's 9,450-foot runway.
The 707 clipped 10 minutes off
its own record of October, 1955, for
a similar flight, but of 2,340 miles,
measured not from takeoff but
from over Seattle to over Wash-

said that the official transcont-
nental speed record is three hours
44 minutes and 53.88 seconds, set
March 9, 1955, by an Air Force
Republic F84F jet fighter on a
2,445.9-mile flight from over the
center of Los Angeles to over the
center of New York City. The
F84F speed average was 652/2

These fraternities have failed to
maintain a 2.2. all-college grade
average within their membership.
Two consecutive terms of sub-
standard grades in a fraternity can
bring more strict social probation.

out poor students before they be-
