THURSDAY; MAY 25, 1930 BLYTHEVILLE, (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS Survey Along • Will Permit Save Miles Aleutian Ships Tc WASHINGTON, May 25. - Th four-centuries' quest of navigator for the shortest route from Amer fen lo Asln will approach realiza (ion this summer, when vessels o Ihe U. S. Coast nncl Geodetic Siir vcy continue chart-making nlon" the Alenihin Islands area on Hi rim of the North Pacific. Since the days when steamer "superseded sailing-ships for com mcrclnl traffic between North Amer Icn, Japan, and the 'mainland o Asia, the fog-shrouded, miclinrtcc chain of rockbouml Islets stretch '' ing far westward from Alaska ha kept ocean liners to a "cojnpDsit course" somewhat longer limn th "great circle course"-of mlnlnnm distance. The "composite course" rcpre senl-s- a route compounded fron arcs of separate "groat circles, 1 made necessary because the Aleu- lian chain offered insurmoimlablL Iiazards to navigators who woulc otherwise follow the theoretically -shortest route that could be me tired on a globe. 'J'liree Circle Koutcs Charled Navigators westbound usually chart one great circle route to a point off the eastern end of the Aleutians, then another "circle' route lo keep 50 miles or more south of the Alclilions, and a final "circle" route for the remainder of the trip to Japan. When charts now projected are completed, and Hie necessary nnvi- gnlion nlds are established, It will be possible [or steamers to proceed fc , with safety north, rather limn y south, of Ihe Aleutians, on Ihe theoretically "shortest roulc" subject only lo a deviation necessitated by the short passage through Unlmnk Pass lo the Bering Sen, nnd n second "pass" between some of the Aleutians farther to Die west, into the Pacific. The projected new course is said to be well known lo Japanese navigators and frequently used by Japanese fishing; vessels. The estimated reduction in mileage will be less than 100. but the new route would greatly reduce the hazards of .fog. It would lie south of the normal "ire drift" f f oin the Arclic into Ihe northerly Bering Sea. Seas are normally less heavy in south .Bering..waters than in the North Pacific,.,aiid high-seas subside more quickly' than in the North Pacific new possibilities '•' for inter-contl- nentul' direct air travel. Two Courses Followed The present regular "composite course" between Seattle and Yokohama is, westbound, 4,257 'miles, and eastbotmd, 4,276. Different tracks arc taken on the two trips to avoid any possibility of collisii. in iog or storm, the route east- hound being more southerly and lliercfore slightly longer. One navigators' publication cctn- pulcs the-Seattle-Yokohama passage via Unlmnk Pass and north of Attu Island (the outermost of the Aleutians)' at 4,213 miles. Alternative routes may be found between other of the Aleutians, closer than the outermost Island of Attu. Attention to the mariners' problems along the north rim of Ihe Pacific is coincident with the rapidly increasing Interest in the military, naval, and commercial .significance of that part, of the world. Japanese and American fishermen's rivalries in the bays oil the Bering Sea have caused huenui- lional friction at times. American* fishermen, from the Northwest, for commercial reasons, are speeding arrival in Bering waters by combined use of steamer-and-air transport. The exigencies of nir defense have encouraged United Slates defensive improvements in southern Alaska and parts of (lie Aleutians. Aleutians Into Promineiice Net effect of these developments on the country at large Iras been to stimulate geographical interest in Alaska and the Aleutians. Most persons have long overlooked the extraordinary dimensions of these northlands under Ihe American ling. An official publication states that the area of Alaska and Aleutian Islands, if superimposed on the United States in true north- south posillcn so ns to touch the Canadian boundary a short distance west of the Lake o[ the Woods would reach the Atlantic ocean near the line between Georgia and South Carolina, cross the Mexican boundary In northwestern 'New FREE SHOW TICKETS To the Ritz ur Rosy Theaters.
