The NC-4 made its final lap of the
trans-Atlantic trip Tuesday. The
plane left the Azores, where its crew
had been treated with great hospital
ity by the people, at 10:18 a. m., by
Greenwich (6:18 New York) time.
The. "navy had made all preparations
to take care of the seaplane and its
crew. Fourteen destroyers, one for
each fifty miles, steamed back and
forth along the line of flight, and all
day, as the airboat soared across the
ocean space radio messages went in
constant succession to tell the people
of America and the world of the pro progress

from Ponta Delgada to Lisbon was
made without interruption, in nine
hours and forty-three minutes, and so
ended the first trans-Atlantic trip

not repeat the mistake.
We have loudly proclaimed that our

ture agriculture and stock raising in the state. It
is mortifying to see it holding out the
hat for money from the state to pay
its fair premiums.
We paid our own premiums when
the fair was instituted. If we do not
take enough interest in our fair to
support it well enough to enable it to
pay its premiums, let's get out of
the fair business.
If a fair cannot' pay its own -expenses,
it should shut its gates. A
