Written for NEA Service NEW YORK-Whon warplanos bearing swnstika markings were reported to have been teamed up with Jupancsc bombers raiding northern Australia recently, the immediate mystery was: "How could German planes gel there?" Although much Allied-controlled territory separates Germany from the southwest Pacific battleground, Luft- waffe planes might make the trip by two routes—both tough, but not impossible. .Japanese-held areas in southeastern Asia could be reached via Afghanistan or Africa. Route No. 1 starts in German-held Crimea or Odessa and calls for a nonstop flight past neutral Turkey, over oil-rich Iran and into desolate mountain-studded Afghanistan at the northwest frontier of India. Refueling, the planes would sneak on through Chinese Turkcslan, past bleak Tibet and its mythical Shangri La to the China Sea, probably landing in French Indo-China. Only planes of unusually long range could make the trips and they would have to fly in sub-stralosphere, mostly at night to avoid detection and miss collisions with soaring mountain peaks. ; This northern route was partially pioneered before the war when Ger- .many controlled airlines over Iran and built up contacts in Central Asia with exiled Indian princes related to the Afghan royal family, fugitive chieftains from Soviet Turkestan. With them are German officers, trained by Central Oscar Von Nicdemay- er. who speak Afghan dialects and shares hardships of the natives. Both Routes Pioneered Early The "Eurasian Aviation Corporation," which in clays of the Hitler-Stalin pact operated n Turkestan-China airline, pospccted remote dorbcr provinces of Afghanistan. Both Germans and Japanese had ample opportunity to study, and even organize, an emergency route to the China Sea over country where even native rulers are not in full control. Route No. 2, although probably easier, is no pushover, cither. This calls for a flight from France to Africa, across the Sahara to Zinder and on below the Equator to Vichy- LIBERTY UMEfflCKS A rcd-henrled cop named O'Brien, Said—"AH of us folks should be tryin' To save up our pay An' put it away In Defense Bonds—they're surely worth buyin'l" Arrenl Hitler", ndvnncnl ign ii|i for llic 1'ny-Koll Saving* I'lnn. lluy Ildinln and Stamp* every pity dnyl held Madagascar, tlicn on over the Indian Ocean to Burma, Malaya or French Indo-China. Like the northern route, this one would take the planes over enemy territory. The tprincipal hot spot is where the planes have to pass comparatively close to the area patroied by Allied scouting planes from Fort Lamy, held by the Free French in the heart of Africa. The first leg of the trip would end in Vichy-controlled Zinder, the southeastern terminus of the regular trans- Sahanm motor service, where aviation fuel could be supplied. From Zinder to Diego Suarcz, fortified naval station at the northern end of Vichy-controlled Madagascar, is 3200 miles, a distance comparable to that flown by bombers being ferried to England from Bermuda. 4200-Mile Hop in Last Leg Navigators flying this route would have the advantage of regular radio stations which would faciliatc establishing a position by triangulation. The practicability of the route is shown by the fact that, before the war, there were even a few non-stop flights Barbs Not so long ngo it wns money some people used to hide in the sugar bowl, Illinois mnn drove his cnr two miles in Ills sleep.

Vichy authorities have displayed considerable activity in road-building and airport construction in Madagascar's interior. The last leg of this trip by long- range planes, calls for a 4200-mile flight cross the Indian Ocean to Pen- ang on the Malay Peninsula or Bangkok in Thailand. Trans-oceanic hops are usually carried out at night and, unless substantial air patrols are organized between Ceylon and thu Chagos Archipelago by the Allies, interception would be difficult.

DOROTHY LEWIS studied ballet from the age of 4, and her routines on the ice combine the artistry of the toe-dancer with the speed of the skater. Her cigarette combines extra mildness and flavor, She smokes slower-burning Camels. MISS LEWIS works out her routines first in ballet slippers. Many's the Camel cigarette she smokes as. she relaxes. "Yes, I smoke a good bit," Miss Lewis says. "I've found Camels milder by far. No matter how much I smoke, Camels never wear out their welcome." T J-he more I smoke, the more I appreciate Camels," says Miss Lewis at a late supper with friends at the St. Regis. "Their cool, rich flavor is all the more enjoyable because Camels are so mild—with less nicotine in the smoke." You, yourself, try Camels. You'll like everything about this slower-burning cigarette of costlier tobaccos. You'll like that grand flavor — and you'll like knowing that there's less nicotine in the smoke (see below). The smoke of slower* burning Camels contains 28% LESS NICOTINE than the average of the 4 other largest-selling cigarettes tested— less than any of them-r according to independent scientific tests of th& smoke, itself! 8.
