HICO, June 6.—Two men and a
woman, all residents of Hico, plung-
ed to their deaths in an airplane that
crashed within the city limits early
today and burst into flames.
The dead are: Earl R. Lynch, 39,
Miss Lola Mae Williamson, 24, pas-
Bill Blair, 26, mechanic.
Almost everyone of this little com-
munity, about 1,600 persons, were
gazing at the plane just at dusk
when it suddenly went into a spin
and roared to the earth.
It grazed the top of a residence
and crashed 100 feet back of the house
in a vacant lot. Flames shot from
the fuselage and it was 30 minutes
before the local fire department had
extinguished the fire and the charred
bodies of the victims were removed.
The house over which the plane
passed before it nosed into the
ground was occupied by a family
which dashed from the structure.
Lynch, a private iplot, had been
flying about five years. Throughout
the afternoon he had been taking
Hico residents for joy rides in the
plane and the fatal trip was plan-
ned as the last one of the day.
The plane was owned by Lynch
and F. E. Blair, uncle of one of the
members of tSue riding party.

imprisonment. His sentence was
commuted to 15 years April 22, 1933.
