While Miss Earhart was still In tier room visitors began -to call at the hotel. They were kept at bay Impartially by her friends. *. With all excitement: of Tuesday and the fatigue which their great achievement. Involved, the : three trans-Atlantic flyers arranged to take things easy yesterday. Like Miss Earhart, Wilmer Stultz and Louis Gordon planned to reply to the hundreds of cables, telegrams and letters, which she found waiting'on her arrival in London. Despite her fatigue of last night, Miss Earhart; was a comparatively early riser.' She was up at 8.30 and shortly afterward had breakfast in her room, where she stayed all the 1 forenoon. Tho first caller to be admitted was. Ray Athorton, charge d' affaireS"of' tho American Embassy, who presented formal congratulations. One of Miss Earhart's first acts on begin-' hlng her outside activities will be to leave cards at the American ambas-i, sador's residence for Mrs. Alanson, B. Houghton. Miss Earhart was ... exceedingly V pleased with the congratulatory mes-^i sages she received from President Coolidge, secretary Kellogg and Governor Fuller, of Massachusetts. She; intended to make them the first to which she sent replies when" she plunged into the heap of messages which is still growing rapidly. Hundreds of spectators, mostly women, blocked the sidewalks to Miss Earhart's hotel, overflowed into the streets and held up traffic when; the air woman started to'the ; home of Mrs. Guest for luncheon/' (There was a rush toward her as' she crossed to the waiting car and some of the women attempted to embrace her. It was only with difficulty that tho flier got pn her way to the guest home. When Miss Amelia Earhart denied Tuesday that she had received anj proposals of raftrriage following hei feat of being the first /woman to fly across the Atlantic, she was speaking the truth, but she was not abli to say tho same thing yesterday. In yesterday morning's mail tho, first proposal arrived. It was froni| some suitor in Europe, but when] queries were sent to the flyer as to! who the aspirant might be she declined to divulge him name. .Nor would she let the world know in Just what words he had offered his heart and hand. - > » « FTX)OR M3ADEB. explosion, people New York, Today, (IP) —Mayor James J.
