On previous long distance flights, the woman flyer has developed her own technique of maps for use in the air. Clearness and simplicity arc the key requisites. For each flight the compass course, with its hourly or periodic changes, is set down. The distances also are shown, and the estimated elapsed time between specific points, based on a predetermined minimum cruis ing speed. v In addition to the charts them selves, (one of them is alwaiw spread out on the pilot's knees), trie "vital statistics of each portion 'of the flight are recorded in-compact in-compact in-compact memoranda for easy reference. One of several clocks, by the way is set at "zero" at the start, so that it records the elapsed time In the air for that particular flight. HUSBAND GIVES AID "What about fuel and supplies at stopping points?" "We've tried tocver all that," Miss Earhart replied. "Mr. Putnam (George Palmer Putnam, her husband) husband) has had much experience in expedition organization. I think he has had a lot of fun and some grief! in working out the arrangements." Specified amounts of gasoline and oil are now on hand at over thirty points on the 27,00O-mlle 27,00O-mlle 27,00O-mlle course, with a representative in charge at each. Extra engine parts are "spotted" "spotted" at strategic places, and expert mechanical aid arranged. "Doubtless there are many places on the existing itinerary at which I actually will not stop," Miss Enrhart explained. "But it's sensible to be prepared all the way, Which of them I will "leap frog" depends upon weather, on mechanical matters and even on the feelings of the pilot " "By the way," she continued, "in all this preparation we've been fortunate fortunate in having the help of an old friend of ours, the Viscount Jacques de Sibour. He and his wife, the former former Violette Selfridge, have cruised In their own planes over much of the territory I hope to traverse. He is connected with the Standard Oil generously co-operated co-operated co-operated in 'spotting' .our supplies." Another matter to be thought about, it developed, is governmental permissions. Even a lone woman flyer or perhaps especially one-has one-has one-has to have all sorts of permits and official advance arrangements, particularly, particularly, in these troubled times. Irciderijally, typhoid injections and sm'allpox inoculations are among the personal reqiusits of long-range long-range long-range flying. NO HAT CARRIED "Speaking of personal matters, what about your own equipment? e d your food?" "If you mean clothes, one of my own small air-tight air-tight air-tight suitcases will carry all I'll take," Miss Earhart replied. replied. "Once I crossed the Atlantic with only a toothbrush. This time there'll be a few luxuries like spare slacks and clean linen."

She will carry a light over-all over-all over-all flying suiwiever a hat. In the plane she'll wear light, low shoes.

In the fuselage will be a two-man two-man two-man rubber lifeboat, instantly inflatable inflatable liana capsuls of carbon dioxide. Likewise,. Very pistol for firing distress signals, flares that ignite on the surface of the water, and as she says, "a very orange" orange kite. "If we sit down somewhere In the Pr.cific and stay afloat, I'd like to be noticed," says Miss Earhart.

For I attribute my recovery recovery entirely to these marvelous Unipathic medicines. "For the last two years and up to about a month after I started taking the Unipathic medicines, , life has been just one torturing pain after another. It first started in my right leg with pains and swellings so severe that I could, hardly walk. Then a- a- few weeks later both of my knees became in- in- asa flamed and swollen.

Every day seemed like a lifetime of almost unbearable unbearable suffering. I could not sleep at night. The only rest I had was a few short naps during the day, propped up in a chair. The pains in my back were so intense I could not sleep in a reclining position. position. Occasionally I would fall asleep at night, only to be awak ened by nerve-wracking nerve-wracking nerve-wracking pains. Actually, I suffered so much that at times I felt that I did not care whether I lived or died. "I was almost completely cut off from life.

"During the dreadfully cold and wet weather we had this winter I feared my arthritis would be sure to return. I prayed that it wouldn't, and, praise Heaven (arid the Uni pathic medicines), it didn't.
