"Fell 200 Feet without Being Hurt,"
"Mineola, L. I., Aug. 16.
      Mrs. Mary Simms, a wealthy young widow of New York, who has been taking flying lessons at the Hempstead aviation field, was saved from death today by the fact that she was strapped in the seat of her monoplane when it turned turtle at the height of 200 feet. When the wrecked machine was lifted, the woman emerged smiling and only slightly injured."

I have no information as to the dates of her birth or her death.
Editor's Note:
