American Congressmen Enjoy "Visit
London, Sept. 30.-The members of
the latest party of American Con
gressmen to visit Great Britain on
their way to the battlefilelds of
France and Italy have been having an
almost Rooseveltianly strenuous time
here and are enthusiastic over what
they have seen and done since their
arrival. Among other things the Con
gressmen, during a vist to a big avia
tion camp, were treated to flights in
American aeroplanes driven by liberty
motors and vastly en; eyed this "visit
to Cloudland" as representative James
H. Mayo, of Utah, termed it.
"We flew over London," he said,
ascending to an altitudr of 6,000 feet,
circling round and round the metrop
olis and then flew far enough down to
gaze in wonderment at the smiling
hop fields ripening in Ken and upon
the beautiful greenlands of glorious
Devon. Yes, it is rather cold up there,
