The. United States warships were speeding.to Howland. Eleven ad-T ditlonal navy planes were standing by at Pearl Harbor ready to depart at a moment's notice. Miss Earhart's husband, G«orge Putnam, maintaining a ceaseless vigil at Oakland airport, was not convinced, however, that the voices were those of either Miss Earhart or Noonan. her navigator. He also was not certain that the plane had actually sent out earlier dot and dash signals reportedly picked up by coast guard stations, by the British warship Achilles and the freighter New Zealand. "I would be tremendously cheered It these reports were true," he said, ''but the plane is obviously down, somewhere, and being down, I am afraid its radio would be out of commission." Distinct Signals The coast guard cutter Itasca searched the waters off Howland. The British warship Achilles was picking up the plane's signals. A United States navy plane commanded commanded by Lieut. W. W. Harvey left Honolulu for Howland, 1,300 miles away, to join in the search. Eleven other navy planes were expected to follow. It was believed the Earhart "flying laboratory" was capable of remaining afloat for many hours. It has both voice and code-signal radio sending apparatus. apparatus. An amateur radio operator at Los Angeles said he "distinctly heard ' Miss Earhart's voice calling "SOS SOS" at 5:30 a. m. PST (7:30 a. m. CST). Two amateurs in Los Angele'f, Walter McMenamy and Karl Pier T son, heard Miss Earhart broadcasting broadcasting the S. O. S. and the call letters of plane. KHAQQ. "It was Miss Earhart all right," McMenamy said. "I know her voice very well. She just keeps repealing repealing 'S.O.S/ over and over. Just noV she said something else but I couldn't make it out. "She can't use code herself so I assume Noonan is busy or asleep or something. "Her voice sounded pretty good. Not scared at all--she never sounds that way." McMenamy picked up signals which he believed might mean latitude latitude and longitude. "It was 178 and what sounded like 1.6," he said. That position would be considerably more than 100- miles off Howland. No other calls were reported from anywhere giving the plane's position, position, although the Itasca, Achilles and shore stations in Honolulu as well as the mainland reported hear T Ing the signals. .The navy plane.which left HODO-, Continued'from Page Three)
