ru&?LV7=: TJ77V?? rrzr'/bTmr' l^/j MAJORITY of experienced aviators be mm, lieve the proposed aeroplane flight /WaK around the world this summer, while it will be a marvelous demonstration of .JlnliaL human progress and efficiency, is never t^e'ess feasible. The directors of the MprStH Panama-Pacific exposition at San Fran ilJydf cisco are assured of the co-operation of j;CduZ all the great nations over whose terri gSo tory the monoplanes and aeroplanes will whirl. Feat after feat of endurance must be (H performed by the aviator who traverses the broad American continent, makes 1 the great jumps from Island to island of the North Atlantic, pursues the well-traveled air lanes of Europe, safely passes over the bleak and forbidding wastes of Siberia, and fringes the almost uninhabited coast line of northern Asia and Alaska. But each of these feats has been exceeded al ready in the air records now on the books. Now all that is needed is the combination of them. The performance of one great air journey after an other means luck, enormous luck, to a greater de gree than in almost any sporting contest ever organized. Several aviators have signified their intention ot entering. They are willing to take the risks. They are not actuated by the desire for gold, for even the successful contender, who will win the $150,000 first prize and also the $50,000 offered by Lord Northcliffe for the first crossing of the At lantic, will find his $200,000 and perhaps more eaten up by the expenses of his undertaking. It is quite certain, however, that plenty of men of large fortunes and sporting proclivities will be found to finance this peerless air event. The eyes of the world will be upon the brave contenders, even more than they were upon the pioneer aviation racers in that first meet at Rheims in 1908. The attention of the close students of the race is centered upon the problem of the Atlantic. After passing due east from San Francisco across the Sierras, through Reno, Nev.; Cheyenne, Wyo.; Kansas City, St. Louis and New York, the avia tors will coast along the seaboard to Belle Isle, between Newfoundland and Labrador. Here the flight across the Atlantic will begin. The flyers will probably head for Cape Farewell, Greenland, 610 miles away. From Cape Farewell to Iceland the distance is 670 miles, and from Iceland to Stornaway, in the Hebrides, is 570 miles. Three enormous leaps—6lo, 670 and 570 miles. None of them insurmountable in itself. But to hit the bull’s-eye three times in succession—there’s the rub. Then these seas are not always as hospitable as the Mediterranean, which Roland Garros has now crossed twice. There are fog and wind and rocky landing places. But if a row r of warships patrol the course, lent by their governments in the interests of sci ence and human progress, the risk will, not be greate r (for Instance) tuan that taken by the late John B. Moissant when he set off in an untried machine with a fog in his face to fly from Paris to LondoL at a time when the channel crossing alone was considered almost a miracle. Compared with the Atlantic crossing, too, the rest of the journey seems fairly simple. The proposed route is by way of Edinburgh, London, Paris, Berlin, Warsaw, St. Petersburg, Moscow and the Trans-Siberian railway to Man churia and then south to Vladivostok. The next lap takes the aviator across the sea to Corea. He must then cross the Japan sea to Kobe and Tokyo, turn north to Kamchatka and travel along the coast either to East cape or to the Aleutian islands. The distance between the two continents here varies from i;0 to 200 miles. From Alaska the course will be southward to Vancouver, Seat tle, and home to San Francisco. The aviators who hesitate about pronouncing the Journey possible in the present stage of their are calling attention to the distance —28,000 miles. The successful flyer must travel an average of more than 200 miles a day for four months. Will it be possible to accomplish the trip in the few months of summer of the Northern regions through parts of which the course lies? Vedrines was five weeks in doing the 3,500 miles from Paris to the pyramids, flying at an average of only 100 miles daily. This explains clearly how greatly the proposed Journey would outdo anything yet accomplished. Besides the notable flights already mentioned, Oscar Bider has flow n over practically every high mountain in Europe, Garros has made a flight from Marseilles to Paris without stopping; Brinde jonc des Moulinais has toured the capitals of Europe, and two besides Vedrines have reached Egypt from France. Yet these journeys pale be fore the difficulties of the race around the globe. It Is to be noted, however, that the history of aviation is one succession of surprises. Scarcely anything of importance accomplished has not been called impossible beforehand. Aviators have done- so much that one hesitates to doubt their ability to do anything. Special aeroplanes will be constructed for the race. These will probably be swift, but not built for the maximum speed. They will make say, 60 miles an hour. Reliability will be the object WHERE SCIENCE FAILS We need, as we never needed be fore, a broader and deeper study of history, of philosophy, of literature; for most of our young, a knowledge of the mental and spiritual past of the race is of far greater importance than a knowledge of the physical pasL at the amo'ba stage, or any other. Science, much as it can do for us, can never meet our deepest need; the world of imaginative beauty and the TAP CABLE; TELL OF RESCUE Unusual Means of Sending Word of the Rescue of Sailors From Lost Ship. Word was received by telegraph from SL John, N. B„ of the rescua at sea of the captain and 22 members of the crew of the Gloucester fishing ves sel Cynthia after they had been_forced to abandon their boat in a sinking con dition. All are safe on the Western Union cable ship Minia. :vr; vai) air rol/TZ There will be accommodations for two men, both pilots, who will relieve each other at the tiller. A large supply of fuel and oil must be carried. It will be a splendid test for the machine builders, and most of the factories on both sides of the At lantic are expected to be in the field. In the United States ".he following constructors have tentatively signified their willingness to build a 'round the world plane: Glenn H. Curtiss of Hammondsport, N. Y.; Orville Wright of Day ton, O.; \V r . Starling Burgess of Marblehead, Mass.; Thomas Benoist of St. Louis, Emile Ber liner of Washington, D. C.; the Heinricji Brothers of Baldwin, L. I; John E. Sioane of New York city, Editon F. Gallaudet of Norwich, Conn., and Ingles Uppercu of New York city. There are now 7,000 licensed aviators in the world. Out of this field there must be several hundred who would attempt the proposed flight if the financial backing were forthcoming. The first man in America to get In his entry was Beck with Havens. Capt. Mathew A. Batson of Savan nah, Ga., a former army officer, who is the inven tor of a flying boat, announces he will enter the race. Lincoln Beachey will also compete. From abroad come many expressions showing enthusi asm for the race. The time before the start is hort, however. By May 1, few could have their machines In readiness at the Golden Gate. Claude Grahame-White, the noted English aviator, thinks the exposition offi cials should take off the time limit entirely. He thinks the trip around the globe cannot be made this summer, but might be accomplished in 1916. He said: “They (the exposition officials) might as well offer $10,000,000. It is as safe as in the Bank of England if the offer is to be withdrawn i t the end of 1915. Ido not believe you would have time now to get a machine ready even if you worked day and night. “I think it would need to be a comparatively slow machine for the race; that is, one doing 60 miles an hour. I certainly would not have a mono plane, for I do not think monoplane construction lends itself to a big weight-lifting machine.” The London Daily Mail, Lord Northcliffe’s news paper, doubts that the feat can be accomplished. It says: “The exhibition committee's offer indicates re markable confidence in the future of aircraft, though there is little prospect of the feat being accomplished by the proposed date. But it is merely a question of time before an airman puts a girdle around the world." Roland Garros said: “They can count ms In, provided oceans are eliminated, as in the case of an automobile trip, and other conditions are decently fair. I am an aviator who will not attempt the impossible. I am positive that no engine today could stand tho whole Journey. Withojt having to fly across the oceans, I believe I could accomplish the feat with one engine, provided I wece allowed to repair it.” Capt. Thomas Baldwin, a veteran of the balloon field before he took up aeroplanes, said the great world of ethical endeavor are apart from its domain. It has no spring to touch the will, yet that which has, the magnificent inheritance of our literr ture, i.i more and more neglected for the latest machinery that applied sci ence has devised, or the most recent treatise on insect, bird or worm. It is well to study insect, bird and worm, for they art endlessly interesting, out I maintain that neither the full sum News of the saving of the men was forwarded to Gloucester through tha unusual means of tapping the ocean cable, sending word to Sl John, to the manager of the cable company, an 1 thence by wire to Gloucester. The Mlnia was at work repairing the cable at a point south of St Pierre backs when the crew of the Cynthia was discovered. The rescue was ac complished in latitude 44.55 and longi tude b 6.8.

A man vith an up-to-date fishing outfit emerged from the highway and est difficulty would be to cross the Atlantic ocean, and for this trip special machines with arrangements to carry provisions and fuel for 20 hours at least must be con structed. “Except for the flight across the Atlantic,” said Captain Baldwin, “the race will not be difficult. I figure that the aviators will have to travel 28,000 miles. Of course it will bo necessary for two pilots to travel in each ma chine so that they can relieve each other. “Motors now are made so that they are fairly reliable, and the trips across the water for stretches of 500 or 600 miles may be accomplished with comparative ease. The trip by land over Europe and Asia will be made without great difficulty, and arrange ments for crossing the Bering strait will insure success for that stage of the journey.” The exposition officials ex- pect to have at least $300,000 to offer in prizes. The first prize will probably be $150,000, although it may be SIOO,OOO or $200,000. The race will be under the supervision of an international commis sion consisting of men from all the countries on the route of the race. The commission will be scientific and advisory, and its duties will be to suggest the route and offer counsel on geographic, meteorologic and scientific problems. The commission will be named by the president of the United States, the king of Great Britain, the pres’dent of France, the German emperor, the emperor of Russia, the emperor of Japan, and the premier of Britit-h Columbia. An international fleet will be organized. Japan and the United States will be asked to patrol the Pacific ocean court e with scout cruisers, and the United Gtates, England and France to establish the same sort of a guard in the Atlantic. Russia will be requested to distribute troops over the desolate wastes of Siberia and Manchuria. TALKED TO DEATH. The toastmaster was in despair. Looking down, the table he saw a friend, an Irishman, noted for his wit, and he thought that he might help. He called on him. With du6 solemnity the Irishman responded: “I cannot say what I want to say,” he began with “for we are all limited to five minutes. So I will tell you of an Irishman who came to this country. He wrot9 home telling of things here, and recounted that no longer were men put to death in this country by being hanged. ‘The way they kill ’em here.’ he wrote, ‘is by elocution.’ ” Raleigh News and Observer.

SALADS WORTH WHILE tCME OF THE OLD FAVORITES AND 80ME THAT ARE NEW. In Imitation of n Pond Lily Is an E*< cellent Method of Serving— With * Veal and Peaa — Recipe for Proper Dresaing. Pond Lily Salad— Six hard-boiledf ©gits, cool, remove shell with a sharp knife (pointed), cut around seesaw fashion in middle of eggs, then break egg apart gently; with a fork scrape the yellow part to make it mealy or soft and cut a slice off end of egg to make it stand pat; spiead on lettuce leaves (small ones for cups) and drop a little mayonnaise into lettuce. Then peel six or eight radishes in points, turn back half-way and you have very pretty pond lily buds, and if you have followed out cutting direc tioas the eggs make a good imitation of pond lilies, a delight to the eye, and an egg relish to the stomach. If serve on a looking glass platter mounted on four brass or s.lver pegs the salad reflects in the glass like water.
