R-34. the first lighter-tbaa-alr
machine to crocs tbe Atlantic
Orean, anchored here at Roosevelt fl M
after an aerial voyage of 10S hours and
12 mlnutea wbirb covered lilt knots
or approximately 300 land miles.
Passing through denee banks of
elood, with the sun and sea visible
.only at rare Intervals, tbe R-34 wss
forced to cruise 200 sea mllea to reach
Trinity Bay, Newfonndland. from East
Fortune, Scotland, and 1080 aea miles
from, there to Mineols.
- When the super-dirigible arrived
here abe bad left only enough petrol
to keep her moving 90 mlnutea longer.
Iter crew, almost aleeplesa for four and
a hslt days, were weary almost to the
point of exhaustion, but happy at the
, successful completion of their trip.

and terrific electrical storms.-
IS ABSORBING TOPIC
London. Nothing hat fired British
Imagination aa much In years aa tbe
announcement by Premier Lloyd
George that tha ex-kaiser will soon ba
tried In London. It la tha sole topic
of discussion everywhere and tbe wlad
teems wholehearted and unanimous
throughout Britain that the ex-monarch
be brought to Justice without de
lay. The subject has wiped everything
except news of the R-34 from the front
pages of London newspapers, which
print columns of conjecture and com
ment. r ' - , .
Opinion la divided as to whether Hol
land will release the ex-kaiser,' but J.
C. Vandeveer, a prominent Dutch edi
tor, thinks there will be no' trouble, In
bringing about tbe defendant's extra
dition. Dispatches from Holland tend
to etrensthen the view that while there
may be a show of resistance on legal
tnd international grounds, the Nether
lands government will eventually de
liver Its unwelcome guest Into his
ludgea' hands. t
