Dayton, Ohio, November 27th (AP) Carl A. Cover, 51, vice president of Bell Aircraft Corporation and manager of the firm's Georgia division, and Max Stupar, Bell Industrial planning director, were killed Monday in the crash of their twin-engine cargo plane at Wright Field.

WIDELY KNOW AIRMAN IS KILLED IN ACCIDENT

Col. Carl A. Cover, native of Roxbury, widely known in cargo aircraft circle, was killed in an airplane crash at Dayton, Ohio. He is a nephew of Mrs. Raymond Lemaster of this community.

Col. Cover, age 51, born in Roxbury, educated in Harrisburg schools, was general manager of the Bell Aircraft Corporation's plant at Atlanta, Georgia. He accepted a commission in the Army Air Forces as a colonel at the personal request of Gen. H.H. Arnold, who regarded him as one of the most outstanding men in the heavy cargo plane field, and he was on his way to California from Buffalo when his plane crashed.

He was a pioneer in construction of big cargo planes and was the first man to fly a DC-4 cargo plane on a flight test. In April 1943, he was asked by Gen. Arnold to assist in B-29 Superfortress production and was commissioned a colonel. Shortly thereafter he joined the Bell staff in Georgia.

He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Minnette Miller Cover, two children, Hugh and Helen, all of Santa Monica California and a sister, Mrs. Robert W. Lowry, Harrisburg.
