Races Blazing Coupe to Foot of Steep Hill Before Leaping.

GRANTSVILLE, Md., Dec. 27—When his car caught fire as he was descending a series of steep hills on the National Highway near Somerfield, a few miles north of here, Alitha Spinger, son of Mr. and Mrs. R. E. Springer, escaped death through sheer nerve.

To have stopped the car on the hill would have been folly, so with the car alazing on all sides , he raced down to the bottom of the mountain hill, stopped the machine and made a quick jump through the flames which had enveloped the door of his coupe.

The contents of the machine, including a valuable shotgun, were destroyed.
