AIR TRAIL LINDYI BLAZED NOW IS PLANES' ROUTE All Points of Pioneer Trip Served: Development to Amazing. NEW YORK. March 6.—When, only two years ago. Colonel Lind bergh circled the Caribbean, blaz ing the air trail to link Mexico, Central America. South America and the West Indies with the United States, the prospect for regular air travel over his routes seemed remote. But today every point on his pioneer trip is served by passenger planes, and before the year is out New York will be con nected with Buenos Aires by sched uled air service. The rapid development of air service between North and South America has become the most spec tacular feature of commercial aviation in the last year, notes the writer who describes an aerial journey through the subtropics in the March issue of the Review of Reviews. Not only Ls all of Lindbergh’s ori ginal route served by passenger planes today, but the aerial tourist who wishes may start at Miami and make a southward circuit which will tke him to Santiago, Chile, thence across the Andes to Buenos Aires and back to Miami via the West Indies, thus covering two-thirds of the South American continent on his trip. Cover Big Mileage In fact, the only leg of the New York-Buenos Aires journey not yet serviced regularly by air is the eas iest, that from New York to Miami, over which regular flights soon will be scheduled by the New York Rio- Buenos Aires line. This line, which began southward operations from Miami in February, is using luxuriously equipped twen ty-passenger flying boats with which it proposes to cover in seven days the 7.000-rnile journey which now takes eighteen days by ocean liner. It .row operates between Miami and Para, Brazil, between which city and Buenos Aires the line has had an actively established route since August, 1929. For six months an older line has been successfully in the field. The Pan-American Airways, beginning operations in September, flies seven planes daily from Miami to Havana, where it offers routings to Mexico, throueh Central America and down the Pacific coast of South America to Santiago. An alternative route lies over the West Indian islands. Tlie two lines together now cover 103 500 miles a week. May Study Countries Tlie air journey around South America, now possible, offers two novel flights in addition to a bircLs eve view of the Latin countries and their fascinating medley of ancient ruins, thriving modern cities and primitive jungles, notes the Review of Reviews writer. These perhaps are the lowest and highest compulsory flights on regu larly scheduled air routes. Between Buenos Aires and Santiago the planes cross the Andes at a height /-jandling More Than J A 11,000 Checks A Day During 1929, 3,428,401 checks .were drawn on the Fletcher Trust Banks, an average of more than 11,277 checks tor each business day.

Improve Mail Service OTTAWA, Canada, March 6—Ad ditional air mail service was in augurated between Winnipeg, Cal gary, and Edmonton on March 3 by the Canadian postoffice department.

New Kind of Salts Take Country By Storm They Revitalize the System Activity—Keep Body In Splendid Condition —Free From Fat. It doesn't take long for Americans to wake up to a good thing—only a few months ago Kruschen Salts were introduced into this country and the welcome news of their superior good ness and swift rejuvenating power traveled so fast that at one time the supply was many carloads behind the demand. All of which goes to prove that Americans know good salts when they take them and want their friends to benefit also. Kruschen Salts are taken for their health building value all over the world —they are the largest selling medicinal salts in Great Britain to day. Krupchen Salts are different from other salts - Kruschen is six salts in one —the very same six salts that nature put into the human body at the begin ning of creation and demands you keep them there or your health won’t be as good as it should be. . . . .... iilL, i: \JLiXO O|TSA GOOD IDEA TO CULTIVATE GOOD KABO'S, CAUSE BAD OWES AKE . _ to >01 poo ..i.Pr.o SEEKS ASSESSOR POST Fred B.
