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
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
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
Unusual Means of Sending Word of

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

“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.
