The picture was mailed from Singapore. Brother of Mason City Man on Junk Bound for New York World's Fair Rex Purceil Writes of - Adventurous Cruise of "Pang-jin" from Orient . When a Ningpo junk of centuries old design, high pooped and with an elaborately-carved Buddhist shrine in the main compartment, sailed serenely into Singapore harbor early in January on the first leg of an ocean cruise frorn Hong Kong to New York there was an lowan aboard, the brother of Edward Purcell, 1118 Hampshire avenue -northeast. Rex E. Purcell, a native of Missouri Valley, is the adventurous lowan, who with three others, an Australian, J. Peterson, master o! the vessel; a Dane, P. Mogensen, navigating officer, and another American, H. T. Merrill, a gold- mining engineer, plan to exhibit the vessel at the New York World's fair at the end of the cruise. Is Radio Operator Peterson superintended the con T struction o£ the vessel and Purcell; a former airline pilot, is-the ship's radio operator. The rest of the crew comprises a Singapore- born deck hand, ;Hene Sobrielo, and a Chinese cook, Ma Fook. Purcell has lived an adventurous life since leaving his home town at Missouri Valley. He took up flying at Kelly field and Brooks field, Texas, in' 1923, Later he did stunt flying and doubled in movies. Then he joined the Boeing air lines, flying from Cheyenne to Salt Lake City, before this became the United line. Flew in Philippines In 1925-26 he was chief instructor at the California School of Aeronautics, in 1928-29 he was chief instructor of the Beacon air ines, Kansas City. In 1931 he left "or the Philippines and since 1935 has been flying the mail through the islands. Last December he met up with ftree others, and they planned his . adventurous cruise to the New York world's fair. The craft was constructed at Hong Kong and s an accurate duplicate of the centuries old Chinese junks. Sturdily built, the 76 foot junk las spacious accommodation be- ow decks. There is a cabin aft, and a large ssloon, where the sides »f the hull are covered with artistic. Chinese paintaings and where there is a Buddist shrine at the forward end. Called "Pang-Jin" The entire stern also is covered with a painting representing the blessing of fair weather, with a soaring bird as tlie central theme. Che junk's name, "Pang-jin," itsejf s that of a legendary bird similar to a roc. Although it is well ballasted the uuk rides high on the water. Her hull draught is less than 7 feet although the four-foot wide rudder textending 17 feet below the water acts as a fin. The craft carries a big spread of jai! on three masts and there is also a fisherman staysail between he foremast and mainmast. Has Smart Passage Tlie craft made a smart passage Tom Hong Kong to Singapore in 12 days. In one period o£ 24 hours iie junk logged 210 miles, attain- ng a maximum speed of more than nine knots. It was becalmed for a day and had only a light breeze on another day. The plan of the navigators was to continue up the Malacca Strait, across the Indian ocean and down the coast of Africa to Cape Town. Then the route will lie across the Atlantic to New York, which the voyagers hope to reach at the end of May during the New York world fail-. In China Sea The picture was taken by Mr Purcell from a small craft while the juilk was in a calm in the China /sea. Together with other pictures of the craft it was sent to the brother residing in Mason City who is an insurance adjuster with the General Exchange Insurance corporation. Mr. Purcell lias not heard from his brother since the junk left Singapore about mid-January but believes the craft to be somewhere near Cape Town, South Africa. ERODING IOWA LAND IS MAPPED 150,000 Acres Are Surveyed in Planning Control Programs AMES--More than 150,000 acres of ei-oding Iowa farm land were mapped by the soil conservation service in 1938 as a basic step in planning erosion control programs, Frank H. Mendell, state co-ordina- tor for the service, revealed Wednesday. The exact total was 153,680 acres--of which 88,660 were in project and camp areas. 9,140 in extension farms, and 55,680 in Lucas county. The area surveyed last year orings to 920,000 the total number of acres surveyed in I o w a since the soil conservation service began operations; Mendell said. Crop rotations, terracing, strip cropping, grassed waterways, contour or "around the hill" farming, gully tree plantings--these and- other erosion control practices are worked out for the individual farm on-the basis of the surveys, Mendell said. "In order to make 'complete* planning possible, the surveyors check not only the present degree of erosion, but also the steepness of slope, soil type, cover and factors which effect erosion."
