'THE COW JUMPED OVER THE MOON': There was no dog around to laugh "at such sport" as the first bovine passenger over to take to the air from Willow Run Aiport stoically allowed itself to be loaded aboard a cargo plane yesterday afternoon. The cow is Cesor Maxim's Irene, a prize Guernsey, being shipped to its new home in North Carolina by plane to avoid "travel sickness." Shown inspecting the cow, which was sold for $3,100, are (left to right) G. O. Shaver, pilot for Twentieth Century Airlines; the cow's new owner, Ivan W. Byers, of Shoal Falls Farm, Hendersonville, N. C.; and its old owner, Albert Kessler, manager of the Cesor Farms, new New Hudson, Mich.
