He closed bis ?ves. srnoolhed down his briaht blue military coat, and composed himself as if for a nap. 1'rctiy soon, though, he continued: YEAKK OF PREPARATION "Take this new record I just made, hoppin' from the ccasl lo New York in ten hours and five minutes. That sounds pretty fasl, doesn't it —yes. sir. that's pretty- fast . . . Kinda makes the covere-J wagons look sick, and all that . . . But you know, actually. I sp?nt five years makin' that fliglit! That doesn't sound so fasl. doss it? Some ]>eople could probably push a, peanut from coast to coast in thai lime." What the handsome flyer really meant, of course, was that he had been trying for trie record oft and on ft;- five years. Some attempts wre not successful, but much cf the time was Spent in slowly and carefully figuring out each detail that might make the reeord possible. Now that he holds tr.e mark lor transcontinental flying in both directions, he Isn't going to ill? trouble of trying to lov.-ei- them himself. Not v.ntil somebody else makes a faster trip will Turner ease himself into the single cockpit of his golden racing monoplane and (ry- to better the time.

''We've got n house in Lcs An*- geles, though. And Roscoe won't stir out of it except when lie's working. He's got a favorite corner, with a big chair and an ottoman, and there he sits.

Montgomery gave him the SIC gold piece that lie carries as 'a luck charm. "Don't get the Itlea that I'm— er—unsocial." said Turner, yawning again.

But of all the ways in which tobacco is used, the . cigarette is the mildest form. Another thing—cigarettes are about the most convenient smoke. All you have to do is strike a match. Everything that money can buy and everything that science knows about is used to make Chesterfields. The right home-grown tobaccos—seasoned with just enough aromatic Turkish — are blended and cross- blended the Chesterfield way. Then the cigarettes are made right —firm, well- filled. Chesterfield uses the right kind of pure cigarette paper. There are other good cigarettes, of course, but Chesterfield is the cigarette that's milder, the cigarette that tastes better. Chesterfields satisfy — we ask you to try them.
