Hammer and Shelton Claim Oil
Line Leak Kept Them From
Another Week in Air
(By Associated Press)
ST. LOUIS, July 23.-Confident
of establishing a new world's rec-
ord for sustained flight tomorrow
Dale "Red" Jackson and Forest
O'Brien were flying smoothly high'
over Lambert, St. Louis Field, to-
night in their trim monoplane "St..
Louis Robin," at 7:17 p. m. Central
Standard Time the flyers had been
up 228 hours and were less than 20
hours short of their goal.
If they are still in the air at 3:01
p. m. tomorrow, they will have ex-
ceeded by one hour the present
record of 246 hours, 43 minutes and
32 seconds, set July 12 at Culver
City, Calif., by Loren Mendell and
Roland Reinhart.
Just before dusk tonight the
flyers took on a new supply of fuel,
checked their motor, and reported
all was well. The endurance flight
will begin tomorrow afternoon the
flyers said in a note dropped this
afternoon, indicating that they in-
tended to pit human strength
against mechanical endurance in,
their attempt to set a new mark.
Jackson wrote in one note several
days ago that they hoped to remain
aloft three weeks.
The St. Louis Robin was without;
the companionship of its sister
plane, the' Missouri Robin tonight.
The latter plane was forced down
at 7:51 a. m. today by a leaky oilr
line after 117 hours and 20 minutesl
in the air. It took off at 10:31 a.
m. last Wednesday.
