the Pacific, or vice-versa. He began his career in 1860 and in
t 1909, at the age of 70, he walked 3,805! miles from New Yorkto '

Mihalo, of Detroit, who has been shattering old records and
hanging out new ones for several years.

While a corporal in the Army during World War II, Mi-
halo loaded himself down with a full field pack and set a
