Daredevils (Skydive - 29 April 1962)


Three local daredevils have announced that they will give an exhibition of skydiving over the airport, six miles west of Neillsville on Highway 10, about 2 p.m. Sunday.


Engaging in the new thrill-sport will be Melvin Gall, an ex-paratrooper and member of a skydiving club in Madison; Buck DeMert, another ex-paratrooper; and Mike Hopkins, Jr.


Hopkins, who plans to make his first jump, commented, "it sounds like fun."
