this far on his trip from San Fran

"on the hqof" exclusively, and his
contract with the Hearst Newspaper
Corporation ls to the effect that he
is to make the entire distance with

ginning of the trip. In other words,
he started penniless and was to com
plete the tour by working his way,
begging, borrowing or stealing the
necessary funds for subsistence. To
date, he said, he had not been forced
to resort to the latter method, and
had found the people all along the
route-as a rule (to all of which
there are, he found, exceptions)
the people along the way have been
mighty nice to him. 'He was making
