'BUCK' WEAVER'S SON EARNS HIS WINGS; ONLY 10 YEARS OLD
-
BY R. E. ROBERTS
The flying son of a flying father earned his wings Sunday morning when George "Buck" Weaver, 10, a fourth grade pupil at Whittier school, sun of "Buck" Weaver, former army  flying instructor, took over the controls of a Cessna monoplane high in the air and piloted the ship from Lorain to Cedar Point, a distance of 50 miles.

Returning to Toledo from Cleveland with his mother, Mrs. Hattie Meyers Junkin, widow of two airmen and one of the two women members of the "Early Birds," an exclusive air organization, "Buck" took over the controls of the big Cessna from Parker Cramer, noted flier, while flying 2,800 feet above Lorain.

Speeding through the air at 110 miles an hour, "Buck" amazed both his mother and Cramer by handling the plane like a veteran.

To test the youngster's knowledge of airplane handling, Cramer put him through several turns and banks, "Buck" handling them like a veteran pilot. The trip from Cleveland to Toledo was made in 45 minutes.

It was "Buck's" first time at the controls of a plane in the air, the young airman having had considerable handling of a plane on the ground.

The youngster was given a royal greeting at Cleveland by a number of mail fliers, in addition to Major Berry, commandant of the Cleveland airport, who was a flying instructor with "Buck's" father in the army air corps.

Parker Cramer, whose air life has been crowded with thrills, was frank to admit that "Buck" gave him an added thrill by handling the plane without any suggestions from him. Cramer plans to continue the boy's flying instructions personally, so pleased is he with "Buck's" ability to grasp the art of handling a plane.

-
Cleveland, May 27 (AP[[?]])—Two official investigations into the Cleveland Clinic disaster, which took 122 lives, were announced for this week. The secret inquest of Coroner A. J. Pearse was expected to reach an end during the week. Another inquiry is to be opened Tuesday by City Health Commissioner Harry L. Rockwood.

Pearse spent the week-end interviewing army chemical experts on poisonous gasses. Burning X-ray films in a basement storeroom generated the gas which killed the victims in the clinic building 10 days ago. He said the result of his inquest, as well as transcripts of all testimony would be made public as soon as he announces his findings.

MAN, HANDCUFF SOUGHT HERE
--- 
Tennesse Deputy Let Prisoner Loss to Take a Bath 
--- 
Unlesss John W. Clark has succeeded in ridding himself of a handcuff it should not be difficult for Evert Speart, deputy sheriff of Sylana, Tenn., and the police to find him. When Speart saw him last on Saturday night Clark told him that he was going to take a bath. 
Believing that "cleanliness is next to godliness," Speart gladly gave permission to his prisoner to bathe. At the same time he did not intend to take any chances on letting him escape. Se he removed the cuff off? one hand and left both dangling from the other. All this happened in Clark's Indiana avenue ??? 
Clark, however, made good use of the opportunity of avoiding being taken back to Tennessee, where he is said to be wanted for a dry lav?? violation. After locking the door of the bath room he did not linger (.) A window was too great of a temptation to resist. With the handcuffs, he disappeared through it, as Speart learned when he missed hearing the splashing noise that usually goes with a bath. 
Speart, wearing a big hat, big boots, big gun and everything, still is looking for his man Monday.
