ST LOUIS, October 19.—Hannen Swafler, touring English journalist, yesterday expressed wonder that Col. Charles A. Lindbergh should be con sidered ‘‘a great American.” The famous flyer "is a brilliant and courageous young airman, one of a type to be found in any nation,” Swafler said in an interview, but added, "we in England can't under stand why he should be a great Ameri can here.” Swafler inspected the Lindbergh trophies—gifts sent the lone eagle from every section of the country after his epic flight to Paris—and described them as “provincial,” "stuff” and "muck.” "Why don’t they send it to a rum mage sale?” he asked. "It is an insult to American intelli gence, the use that is made of a fine building in a magnificent park. Are they afraid of insulting people who gave the stuff to him?” The Lindbergh trophies, on display in St. Louis’ famous Forest Park, have been seen by thousands. Belgium Considers Canal.
