COALDALE, PA. —Nov. 28— A heavy atmosphere of sorrow hung over the youth of Panther Valley today.

Santa Claus broke his leg in a parachute jump.

Santa Claus—George Jetland of Berwick, hired by a department store—forsook traditional reindeer for a more modern arrival by airplane.

He leaped from an airplane over an athletic field where an anxious crowd of customers awaited him. A strong wind carried him three miles off course and into a coal car.
