DIVED AT 500 m.p.h. Stainforth Resting on Laurels LONDON, September 30. [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 2 October 1931

DIVED AT 500 m.p.h. Stainforth Resting on Laurels LONDON, September 30. Calculations, based on the elec- <*> trical camera timing, of Flight. Lieutenant Stainforth's amazing air speed record of 415 miles an hoar at Calshot yesterday, showed that he reached 500 miles an hour In his dives preparatory to flattening out to hurtle over the measured course. The fact that he had to flatten out within 150 feet of the surface of the Solent, and that at that speed a mis take of half a second in bringing the plane out of its streaking dive would have meant death, shows the superb skill of the pilot. Mr. E. J. mnfrnfrpH. the designer of the plane, shared in the distinction of the record. In view of Stainforth's remarkable success, the Air Ministry proposes to rest on its speed laurels . until other naHflns approach the existing records, which may well be several years hence. Stainforth's fastest lap owed a'-out six miles to a helping wind. In a telegram to Squadron-Leader Orlebar,...

SPIRIT NOT DEAD "Digger's" Wager to Walk From Sydney to Perth That the old independent spirit which characterised the "digger" during the war is not altogether dead is proved by the arrival in Adelaide last night of Mr. Lewis Victor ("Tommy") At- kins on his 2,300 mile tramp from Syd-' ney to Perth.   Mr. Atkins, who is a hotel chef by   occupation, but unemployed, became involved in a discussion in Sydney about 10 weeks ago, when some one contemp- tuously expressed the opinion that no unemployed returned soldier would walk 10 yards on the off chance of get- ting a job. "That was more than I could stand," said Mr. Atkins last night. "I spent four years at the war in the 14th Bat- talion and the 4th Machine Gun Bat- talion among some of the finest fel- lows one could hope to come across.
