PAGE 10 T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N FRIDAY. MAY 12, 1967 AFTER 40 YEARS Lindbergh Still Active, But Out Of Public Eye Forty years ago, on May 20, W27, Charles A. Lindbergh, in his plane, the Spirit of St. Louis, became the first aviator to fly solo, non-stop across the Atlantic. The trip, from Curtiss Field, Long Island, New York to Le Bourget Airport near Paris took 33% hours, and made Lindbergh a national h e r o , affectionately called "Lucky Lindy" and "the Lone Eagle.' After the kidnaping and murder u his young son, Lindbergh largely retreated from public invasion of his private life. He continues to lead an active life, but guards the anonymity he now has achieved. Historic Flight Charles Lindbergn is shown beside his plane, the Spirit of St. Louis, just before he began the historic J3y 2 -hour flight from Curtiss Field, N. Y. to Le Bourget Airport in France, the first solo crossing of the Atlantic from west to east. The Takeoff The Spirit of St. Louis takes off for France. "The wheels leave the ground -- full flying speed -- the controls taut, alive straining." Now I have to make it -- there's no alternative," Lindbergh recalled thinking. His comment on arriving in France was only, "Well, I made it."

Kennedy CHAPEL HILL, N. C. (AP)-Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass,, believes the United States should practice "repaint" in Asia once the Vietnam conflict is over. "The first principle of our Asian policy after Vietnam should be restraint," Kennedy s^M this week in a speech at the University of North Carolina. "We must honor the com- mlonents we have made, but 'Â·e' very careful about new ones." K e n n e d y predicted there would be other conflicts in Asia, saying: "Guerrilla movements, despite their terror and violence, offer discontented people a purpose, a faith, an organization and a way of life . . .It is not our business to suppress them ... -to make Asia safe for the mandarins and landlords. "A review of the present situation shows no justification, in my judgment, for American military intervention (in Asia) on^e the war in Vietnam is over." Complaint Cites Dead Animals A Tucson woman says dozens of dead animals have been thrown into her yard during the past six years and that she has complained to health officials who, she added, have failed to take action to remedy the situation. Mrs. Carmella Westcott, 55, of 1840 N. Dragoon St., told city police Wednesday that she has buried 38 dogs and 50 cats in the past six years. She said those were the figures when she stopped counting "long ago." She said the dead animals were dumped on her yard. She owns property across from the old city dump on Dragoon just south of Grant Road. sc=asBS===BC=====j^^=^=^= That's How It Is LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The Fulton Freeman, says Mexican requirements that Mexican capital be in any enterprise is not meant to inhibit American in- * **\iirf t*tÂ» Vtt if f/* t wwiJti j ) MUb w Kennedy said Vietnam and Laos were exceptions to what he called "not a bad record" of Asian countries handling their own insurgencies. The only justification for U. S. military involvement in Asia after the Vietnam war is ended would be Communist Chinese aggression or vast support for Asian insurgencies, Kennedy said.
