TO FLOAT ACROSS THE FOLKS Jiy way of the Pole, the dis tance from England to Japan is 3,000 miles shorter than !>y the usual routes of travel. For a man in a hurry to get to Sweden, the shortest route is northeast past Newfoundland, cutting just south of Iceland and thence to destination. Ai r line distance between places within a continent have become of practical importance within the last few years. Now, according to Rear-Admiral Mof fett, chief of the naval bureau of aeronautics, air routes all over the world are becoming neces sary. The new rigid dirigible, the 7. R-l now in process of comple tion at Lakehurst, N. J., is to be sent for h tour around the World and for trips over the North and South Poles, accord ing to Admiral Moffett. The an nouncement sounds somewhat offhand for so important a feat of aerial advancement, hut recent developments have shown that there is nothing impossible about the project. While former dir igibles of the United States have been ill-fated, aeronautical en gineers have confidence that the new ship, 690 feet in length, fill ed with 5.000.000 cubic feet of non-inflammable helium, will he equal to the task of mapping the unexplored regions of the world. The motive power of the giant cruiser of the air is to consist of a half doren six-cylinder engines, now being tested. The construc tion of the airship began April 0 of last year and she is sched lled to he in commission by July 1. From Admiral Moffett’s stand point the great thing about the new dirigible will he its import ance as a nucleus for an air fleet for national defense, and its im- in peace times in ex ploration of'the unknown regions of land and air. and testing of air currents and temperatures. Rut to the world in general, its importance as a harbinger of vast commercial air develop ment will he us great.

Nearly everyone is thoroughly familiar with the splendid tvork the “Y" is doing in Anne Arun del county, and it is. therefore, unnecessary to go into full de tail regarding it. All of the ac tivities of the Association are so planned and directed that they not only exert a wonderful influence on thosp actively taking part, but they also are such as to he of in estimable worth to the commu nity. To increase these activities so that they will he of even greater value to the community is the aim of the Association.
