MONDAY, JUNE 5, 1939 Great Body Of Waler Last Frontier Of Aviation WASHINGTON tup)—with the Atlantic and Pacific oceans conquered by air pilots and navigators, the Indian Ocenn looms ns the next great challenge to nien of the air. Most of the globe already Is criss-crossed by the dotted lines of exploratory nights or established airlines but there Is a great blank expanse In the Indian Ocean which invites enroling by aerial adventurers. , Aviation and geographical circles f here, therefore, were especially interested in unollicial rcjmts that the American twin-engined alrboat Cuba, recently exploring in British New Guinea, would go to Sydney preparatory to a survey flight across the Indian Ocean under the auspices of the Australian government. I.niid Routes Followed Geographers here pointed out that the air routes between Europe and Australia thus far have followed the land mass and islands of Arabia, India, the Malay Peninsula, and the Dutch East Indies. Some felt that a survey across the Indian Ocean is long over-due. A successful transit of the Indian Ocean, and demonstration of satisfactory Intermediate landing- places for seaplanes would open Immense vistas of future .commercial or military air routes. Press reports indicated that the Australian survey project contemplated a (light from some western port of Australia via Cocos (or |,; Keeling) islands, Diego Garcia island in thte Clmgas group, and Mahe island in the Seychelles group, to Mombasa, capital of Kenya Colony in British East Africa. Mombasa already has commercial airline connections with Egypt and with Ssuth Africa, and with seme detour connections are also made to trans-African routes A survey night from Australia lo Mombasa suggests the future feasibility of an entirely new commercial air route from Australia lo Great .Britain. Toledo Intcrurbans Fade Air strategists hitherto have surmised that if Mediterranean and Near Eastern air routes .should be interrupted by war, Great Britain obviously would seek nn air route across Africaf to trie, ..eastern do- mnlas, " thus'-eii'tfrciyTcirciimvent- mg- any trouble area beyond control by British fleets. Such a contingency was suggested during early stages of Italy's Ethiopian A, campaign, when there for a time ** appeared to be possibility of a general international naval and air struggle in the Mediterranean urea.• j The timeliness of the trans- Indian Ocean survey is indicated in the fact, thnt a new chart of the "Air Routes of the World," issued ' hy • the U. s. «ydrographic Office In May, contains the first tracing Uyoooo (ABKJ COURIER To Glide Across Lake Michigan In his German Mlnlmon glider, Dove of Peace, above, 27-yoir- od Ted Bellnk, right, will aUempl n Si-wile molorless Ilight across vast Lake Michigan.

Ocean area. This chart Indicates no extraordinary over-water distances confronting (lie projected Australian survey flight. Weather and harbor charts of the region also imjlcnle that a randomly-equipped flying- boat should hove no insuperable dilliciilUes on such n night. May Follow Island C'liuin The chart showed various possible air route.'; from Australian cities la Roebatirne in northwestern Australia, prom Roebourne to Cocos to Diego Garcia, (Chn"os Archipelago) 1,473 miles; from Diego Garcia lo Mahe (Seychelles islands), 1,025 miles; from Mahe to Mombasa., 947 miles. All the island groups are British-owned! Experts suggest that if a future "Empire Air Route" tfere established along this chain of islands, connecting links of fairly short distance could be established from Diego Garcia to Ceylon and India, and from Cocos to Batavia and Singapore. Southward connections could be made to Mauritius, Madagascar or South Africa. Britain therefore has a theoretical "nil red" route which could operate in event that main communication.'; by the established overland air routes lo the far cast were interrupted. The island groups along Hbe route of the proposed survey flight all are inhabited.
