NOilTHERN FRONTIER PltOV- •1NCE, Bi-itish East Afica.—The Berry fi. Brooks Expedition has turned its back on Ihc Southern Hemisphere and crossed the Equator to the more languid Northern Hemisphere to continue the quest of MB game. When our convoy crossed the Equator at (i.100 feet altitude, the temperature al 3 p.m. was 74 degrees. Mount Kenya straddles the L.qualnr and reaches an altitude of 17,040 feet. The Northern Frontier Province covers 100.000 square miles. One-half 01 one percent of Africa Is in cilltivalion. We have left our huii'tn^ grounds to combat a most difficult terrain covered with mas-sts of volcanic deposit, and barrenness. The plains are rtraph wilb lava rocks strewn indis- criminalely where only the uiost tenacious bush and hardy vegetation can survive. Game is not only spc- :<\ but scarqCj wild, and 1?ary. The numerous, scattered water- holes, endless expanse of terrain, the grotesquely, rocky, rugged mountains, the impenetrable lava flow beds, guUies and dry dongas of volcanic sand, plus the meager amount of available game make for wicked hunting in this Northern frontier.

It looked as if the great trophy would escape to cheat Virginia of her rendezvous with the rhino In spite of the four hours of hopeful, patient planning. Virginia raised her ride and fired a deadly shot into the powerful pachyderm's Ihroat to break its toughly upholstered spinal column at a distance of 50 yards. The gigantic 2,000 pound rhino lumbered dully earthward never more to rise.

The head skin and horn were saved logether with Ihe four huge feet and a large square ot.'thc tremendously thick hide. Her Daddy's Forest rhino weighed 2.GOO pounds wilh a 21-inch horn. After a belaled luncheon' hot bath and tea, Virginia, plucklly anil uncomplainingly rejoined the hunt- cs to go back afield from 4:30 until after dark at 7:30 p.m. She asks no favors nor special privileges. She takes her hunting and her turn as a real sportsman. She hasn't missed a day in the field since she^ bagfced Woman, Who Had Four Aviator Husbands Die In Crashes, is Killed, Too HOUSTON.
