I Millions of hearts this morning
nearly stopped heating when the news
of the shocking tragedy was spread.
In every one of them there was a
sense of deep personal lose. It earn
so suddenly. Impossible It cant
be true was the first reaction. We
went on hoping that It waa all a
horrible mistake till there waa no
hope and then we went about with
hearts heavier than ever.
Wills homely face smiled at us
every day in the papers while we
read his cheery comment. He was
on the eerwen and on the air and
always to make human beings happier.
He was the most effective of sB
tonics fi bitter hours of depression.
His unfailing humor was Irresistible.
His last wards on earth will never
be known but we ean easily fancy
that ha could erack a joke with his
last breath for his was the kind of
spirit that could "meet with triumph
and disaster and treat both of those
Imposters just the same. Gamely
and gaily be lived 'he must have

Wiley's restless aoul reveled In the
thrill of flying. The air eama to be
as much hie home as It Is the habi-
tat of the eagle. His almost super-
human exploits the story of which
is ao well known didnt satisfy his
resist lew ambition. He wanted to
sail through the stratosphere. His
aoul has soared to the bow
whence no traveler eer returns. Let
us hope that in heights of the Un-
known Land he win enjoy the satis-
