The talk was largely personal
said this friend and Mr Rawn dis
closed that he and Mrs Rawn wore
aVranglhg lioneymoou trip to Eu
rope late this fall and were keeping
It a secret He told me that when
he was married he was too poor to
take a wedding trip and that vcr
since his marriage he bad been too
busy to take one Although Mrs
ltawaanti1have had great oppor
tunity for making trips he said to
me It dawned upon us suddenly that
wo had In reality never made a trip
all alone It seemed that on every
occasion wo had a guest or two and
that we never had an oldfashioned
trip together We agreed that it
was about time that wo had our
honeymoon trip and decided to take
It after all these years So wo have
planned to steal away ate In the
fall after I have got the road In good
shape lake a steamer at New York
and go to Europe to wander around

Now York July 2LAn exhaustive
study of typical wind and weather
conditions for the benefit of aviators
I planning flights between New York
and SL Louis acid Chicago has been
I made by II James Scarr of the New
i York weather bureau
J Tho flights will have to be start
I ed from tho western end ho says
because of the tendency of prevail
ing winds It will also require some
skillful figuring for the aviator to
complete his trp within the specified
time and at the same time avoid un
favorable winds Tho tendency of the
winds is to travel from west to east
in barometric waves These waves
have deep troughs which indicate
storm conditions and high crests
which indicate high barometric per
iods The aviator must start on his
flying journey us soon aa possible af
I ter the passage of lower barometric
pressure so as to get the full benefit
of the crest of tho wind wave
I
These waves pass at the rate of
1 from five hundred to fifteen hundred
i miles every twentyfour hours As
1 can obviously be seen It will require
i
a very fast aeroplane to keep pace
j with the movement of the crest or
o calm wave But more likely than not
before he travels five hundred miles
he will have to come to ground until
another period of calm weather ap
preaches As to the routes my ob
i servatlons appear to favor the south
ern course byway of Parkorsburg
and Baltimore If possible the avia
tor should avoid coming by way of
