Romance of a New-World Girdling
Route
i "The route holds the true ro
mance of the proposed globe-gird
ling flight of Major Blake and his
British associates," remarks a bul
letin from the Washington, D. C,
headquarters of the National Geo1
graphic Society.
"Personal adventure and service
tests are present here, but they
are not paramount as they were
when Lieut. Commander Read flew
across the Atlantic Ocean. The
voyages of Magellan and Columbus
are remembered because they cut
new paths for civilization. If you
will trace out oh a globe or a world
map the route of Major Blake's
party you will realize very quickly
why generations to come may rank
j their course as epochal.
! . Follows Land Route
"It follows the land wherever
land is to be found. Hitherto in
tercontinental travel has been conr
cerned with finding the shortest
water routes. But these flyers
are blazing a trail which skirts the
edges of two great oceans to fol
low the chain of the desolate Ale
utians and to touch the southern
tips of Greenland and Iceland.
*Tf your mind goes along with
those scientists who foresee a day
when airplane travel will supplant
the ocean liner, and if you will
recall what being along the trav
eled way has meant to Portugal
Chicago, Bagdad and Terra Haute
you will find yourself in an O. Hen-"
ry frame of mind?wondering
what soon may be doing in Ko
diak, Reykjavik, or Cape Farewell. '
"The shortest' way around the !
world by airplane, it would seem,-j
is some 30,000 miles. As you view j
the route on your glol>e it looks :
like two festoons, suspended from
Iceland ard southern Alaska. w.:th
one strand dipping to Karachi and
Calcutta a:nd the other to Netv York
j and Chicago.
j. Segments Already Traversed
"The flyers will not cover the
j whole distance in uncharted air.
j That part of the route which lies
j from London, through Rome, Cairo,
and Bagdad to India, is substantial
ity the course taken by the late Sir!
j Ross Smith on nis air cruise to
j Australia.
! "The Atlantic has been crossed'
\ by Lieut. Commander Read, of!
j the American navy, and in a non
jStop flight by Capt. Alcock of the
British army, but the course of]
Major Blake, via Newfoundland.!
Greenland and Iceland is new. It j
may well be that the trans-Atlan- <
tic air travel which seems a cer- j
[ <ainty of the not distant future may
find the more circuitous route less
hazardous. From Newfoundland
to the Azores is approximately 1,
400 miles while it is about 800
to Greenland, with even shorter!
'jumps' from Greenland to Iceland|
I and Iceland to Scotland.
2,000 Miles Nearer Japan.
"The British flyers also have as j
j a precedent on the western hemis- j
j phere the carefully planned round- j
trip flight of Capt. Streett, U. S. A. j
I between New York and Alaska. |
j Perhaps no portion of the flight is
of more interest to Americans than
that from Kamchatka to Alaska.
Such a passage makes the old
world seem infinitely closer. Geo
; graphies have been briefly dis
I posing of the Aleutian chain of
! rocks, flower patches and volcanoes
as a barrier between the Bering
! Sea and the Pacific, but these is
I lands now loom as stepping stones
j between two areas of great eco
I nomic potentiality. Japan is some
I 5,000 miles from continental Amec
j ican soil by steamer out of San
I Francisco;- but is only 3.000 miles
i removed by airship out of the
! Alaska Peninsula,
j "Even more fascinating conjec
l ture arises about the crossing of the
Alaskan Gulf from Kodiak to Sit
! ka, for off Kodiak is situated that j
! eight world wonder, 'The Valley of |
Ten Thousand Smokes.' discovered
by National Qeographic Society ex
peditions sent to study Katmai, the
world's greatest active volcano.
This region has been made a nat
ional monument.- and when it is!
accessible its fifty square miles of ?
steaming fissures and rainbows of
hissing gasses will form one of the I
mot fascinating national parks."

SHOULD RESTRICT
RIGHT OF APPEAL
ludge Shipp Says Regarding
His Charge?Thinks It Is
Open to Loopholes and Sub
terfuges to Delay Justice
Florence, June 17.?"The right
; of appeaj. should be restricted to
j good and sufficient grounds?not
I open to every loophole and subter
j fuge that is resorted to today to
I delay justice." Judge S. W. G.
Shipp, of the Twelfth judicial cir
cuit, said today when asked by a
Times reporter what remedies he
had in mind recently when he
charged a grand jury in the court
of general sessions here that the
public is to blame for the long de
layed justice in criminal cases in
South Carolina and has the remedy
in its hands. "I would not limit
the right of a man's appeal but
i that right should be restricted to
j prima facie evidence that t?te ap
i peal is being taken on good and'
j proper grounds and is not merely
a resort to delay justice.
? "Right of appeal is purely statu
tory and therefore can be changed
at will by the people or their leg
islators. In my judgment, such
changes should be made as will ex- ?
pedite the administration of justice
in South Carolina.. These changes
should enable the courts to reject,
summarily, any - appeal "which is
evidently a move to delay the sen
tence of justice. *
"South Carolina formerly had a
rule which required that an attor -
ney had to get permission of the
supreme court to carry his case
before that body. This rule was
nullified under a decision of that
court in a' famous case. Virginia
J has restricted the right of appeal
I to bona fide evidence of sufficient
] grounds.
j "In the federal courts, if an at
; torney would appeal, he must get
J the permission of the circuit judge
j ?the court official before whom
! the case was tried. If he refuses,
j that ends the matter. I am not in
l favor of this responsibility being
I placed on the trial judge in the
! state courts, but I do favor a plan
j which would operate to the same
i end in the state courts,
j "Another law which the general
j assembly, in my judgment should
j change is that requiring a prisoner
j must be brought back from the
state penitentiary for sentencing in
j the court for trial. Once a man
! has been sentenced to execution,
land has been taken from that
I county to the state penitentiary,
! the supreme court should be dele
j gated the authority to name a date
I for execution. He should not be
j brought back to the county for re
j sentencing. Or let any circuit
I judge then sitting in session, fix a
j date without having the prisoner
brought again from the peniten
tiary into the court."
The charge of Judge Shipp to
the Florence county grand jury has
aroused probably more attention
than any charge which has been
given in South Carolina in many
months. It has been eopied widely
from The Florence Times and most
j of the papers have commented
j very favorably upon his charge,
j Judge Shipp ranks among the fore
I most of the circuit judges of South
i Carolina and stands very high in
j the legal profession of the state.
[Such words coming from him, mean
a great deal in the judgment of the
I press and the public.
j Feminism advances rapidly, but
j we shall he spared the sight of wo
l man pulling on a cigarette while
darning the children's stockings.
With all those whiskers the Rus
sians are naturally in the soup.
