AIRWAYS LINK Washington, (U.P.l A small island in the Pacific whose mere existence was debated for years seems likely to become an important link in future American-Australian airplane routes. The island is Kingman Reef, a mere dot in the wide Pacific, but important as a seaplane landing base because it contains a deep, still lake completely protected from ocean waves by a circular rim of land. William T. Miller, superintendent of airways for the Commerce department, recently visited the island and thereafter announced: "Kingman Reef probably will figure prominently in the development of commercial aviation on the route to the Antipodes as one of the two stops betwen Honolulu and New Zealand." Islands Annexed by U. S. Miller, during the last year has headed four expeditions from Honolulu to Kingman Reef and the nearby islands of Palmyra, Jarvis, Howland, Baker and Se-moa. His object was to obtain weather data and to survey possible landing places for airplanes, .'.s a result of these trips, the islands of Jarvis, ' Howland and Baker, which the United States and Great Britain long had loosely claimed without being much concerned about them, were formally annexed to the United States. The interesting thing about Kingman Reef, which lies roughly at the intersection of a line drawn south from Honolulu with another drawn west from Panama, is that for years its mere existence was debated. Various sailors had sighted land there, but in 1897 the British warship Penguin advised the Admiralty that it had "sailed directly over the area where land was once reported," and that none had been found. The British sea lords ordered it stricken from the navigation charts. Sighted in 1921 In 1921, however, the U. S.
