Seven miles to go. He shook his head to clear it and watched the needle. His strength seemed oozing away. The pressure did that, even in the best suit. The blood couldn't take it. He began to feel drowsy. The stick . . . he couldn't shake the sleep off. It felt too heavy for his eyelids, closing them, gently closing . , sleep. The stick. He snapped him- self awake again. Thirty thousand feet. Pull out at eight thousand, lose three thousand, and level off at five. That was the test. He fought the drowsiness again, desperately. He kept repeating things to himself. Anything that comes down must go up. No--the stick--pull out. Anything that goes up must come down . . . New- ton's apple . . . force of gravity . . . ma* chines failed, not men.., he awoke again. One timusand ten, one-thousand twenty miles an hour. Twenty-five thousand feet. Men could have seen her now, but there were no men in that sky. That sky be- longed to the Black Jet alone, burning its way down through clouds--faster, faster! Like a bullet aimed earthward by a celestial rifle, this plane sped down, down, down. Lightning was not faster than she, this Black Jet. At twenty thousand feet, a whip lashed the plane. Rick felt the plane jerk and shudder. This was bad. The speedometer needle dropped back quickly. An aileron had let go. It would weaken the right wing. He pulled frantically at the clasps. Still control. That was better. Smart thing now to pull out at ten thousand and allow for that drag; He relaxed slight- 19 for a moment, but at eighteen thousand he felt another jerk through the body of the ship: Another aileron? He couldn't take the chance. He'd pull out at fifteen thousand feet. He shuddered involu'ntaTily. Pull her out with an aileron, maybe two, gone? What happened in the tunnel tests ? What about this new alloy? Would it hold? Rick began to sweat inside the suit. It was the first time Rick had ever sweatel out a dive. He tried to laugh, but there was no one to see. He braced himself,' his teeth clenched. The blackout. If only he didn't have that blackout. Why? The fools--couldn't they have done something about that? Some serum--a new type pressure suit? Well, he'd blacked out before. He'd come out. Inside the rubberized lined, heated g4oves, something new happened to his fingers as he reached for the stick. They trembled. All of him trembled. Sixteen thousand, fourteen thousand. What are you waiting for? he screamed at himself. His hand seemed frozen on the stick. Thirteen thousand -- twelve. Pull! pull! Then he snapped back. He could do it. With a mighty effort, he heaved back on the control stick. The flaps jerked up. The plane checked in its 850 mile an hour flight and gave a great shudder. It bent back and tried to check its own flight. It pulled and strained to ease the rocketlike speed. It fought gravity and wind; fought them like a mighty and wild beast fighting for its life. The blood left Rick's head and coursed through overloaded veins into his stom- ach. His face grew pale, and then his THINKING ON MARY" Thinking on Mary is a spur to no- bility. It lifts us out of our natural selves, it gives us a sense of higher values. It helps us to the thought that is behind all Mary's greatness--that to be is better than to have; to give ds finer than to possess, to aspire isnobler thaa to attain. The man who honors Mary lives and moves in a subtler atmosphere, that there is a stamp upon his imagination, a fine- ness of ideals and mental attitudes which might be the mark of some eighth sacrament. The primary requisite for success in the long run is wanting to do something hard for the love of it and not for the cash of it. head lolled inside the mask. He was blacking out. Then the plane quivered slightly, half out of the dive, but still "slanting toward the field far below. The quiver was it. The engineers would know later that it had quivered. The plane was under a stress greater than its elastic limits/Rick felt the quiver as he came out of the 'short coma. He fingered the stick to the right and rear to bank the plane. There was no response. He grabbed a wheel to the right of the dashboard to trim the tabs. No response. The plane fought gallantly. Every nut, bolt and wire seemed to strain and groan trying to pull the nose up level, but they were exhausted, strained. The limits had been reached, then exceeded. The wings slowly buckled back and rammed into the side of the cockpit. The plane began to whip around the sky dizzily, and then resumed its downward flight. There were no instruments to record that speed. No engineers would ever read the pad still strapped to a knee that shook. And no human ears to hear the voice of Rick Brunner, In that last moment be- fore ten tons of aluminum and steel dug its grave twelve feet under ground, scream: "Oh, my God... help me... help me!"' oh, my God!"
