Newspaper Publishers Ass'n MONDAY, DKCEMBEK 10, 1949 Magellan To Lanphier People have been sailing around the world for more than 400 years, ever since Ferdinand Magellan's expedition of 1519-22. He was killed in the Philippines, but some of his men finished the trip hack to Spain. Sir Francis Drake made it from Plymouth^ England, and hack a^'ain (1577-80) in nhout the same time — nearly three years. Since those days, especially in the past 75 years, (ho circumnavigators have been doing It often. The latest one is Tom Lan- phicr, Jr., the ex-fighter pilot credited with shooting down Japanese Admiral Yamamoto in the Solomons back in 1943. Lanphier £i|.|ji:ti aic,unil the «-»rM fcn 'i- < i '•;' -• ln-'iiiU ,1 nil lil,,;I;, IT, ,, •••!•••' ' ' .• | -...:., ., ,. ' ••> " i'.' '!;• '. Mm- !' ,• .1 ,1 fi'!:ii-i!!y Ms i<|vuisor "as llio Air Fnrce Association, which v, anted to "show in a dramatic way the tremendous growth of aviation in just 46 years." The trip turned out. of course, to be a flood advertisement for the airlines— and for the two nylon shirts he wore and washed aloft. The first fill-commercial trip around the globe became possible in April, 1947, when a. party of newspaper men did it in 13 days, three hours. In 1948 schedules had improved so that Col. Ed- v.ard Eagan, chairman of the Nov.- York Boxing Commission, v.-.'ii; able to pull the time down t.-j .six days^ three hours. Lan- phicr's four days. 23 hours and •47 minutes is a record that may r.-s '.veil stand for a good long t::;'C-. Ts'.ihody could wish to circle the v.-.;i-;.-3 that fast for any business or ;iica-;ure trip. There are vast areas of the world which airlines do not serve.. But there's no doubt Magellan and Drake have been left far behind. Daniel And The Lioness Skeptical yet fascinated were those who read the dispatch from South Africa about Daniel and the lioness. As reported in the Ixjpdon Daily Express and picked up by some American newspapers, the story is this: "Young Daniel Esterhyse of Johannesburg asked his girl's father if he could marry her. The father, something of a practical joker, told Daniel: 'Prove you are worthy of her. Do something no one else has done—milk a lioness.' "Daniel was undaunted. He marched off to the wilds of southwest Africa where he recruited trackers and set a trap. Luck was with him. His first catch was a recently-whelped lioness. [Daniel tried to bind her feet but was smacked down promptly. Finally he lashed the lioness to a tree and milked her." Can anything done in the Age of Chivalry touch that for determination in \vinning the hand of a fair lady? If all suspicion of a publicity stunt of some kind I.s resolutely brushed asHo, there IK still curiosity no to ;vhnt he did wilh the milk. Did he bind her father hand and foot and force him to drink it, Hiowly, drciji !>y drop? Mr. Cole's Poll Last October W. Sterling Cole of Delaware sent telegrams to nil high ranking officers of the Navy and Marine Corps asking whether they backed Admiral Louis Dcnfeld, former Chief of Naval Operations, in his criticism of Defense Department policies. To date he has received 170 replies to 308 Inquiries. Of these, 117 backed the admiral, 26 were noncommittal, and 27 said Navy regulations prevented a reply. From the results of the survey. Representative Cole has drawn the following conclusions: 1 That the replies are pertinent to the nature of the report, the House commitee plans to submit in January on the inventlga- tlon of the bad points of present unification policies. 2. That it would bo "incorrect, unfair and misleading" to dismiss Admiral Denfeld's charges without due consideration. (The admiral's ouster followed his charges before the committee that national security was being jeopardized because undue emphasis was being placed on the; potential of the B-36 bomber while the Navy was being weakened by cutbacks). The great majority, at, replies indicate that officers with lengthy Careers in the N.avy have cast their lot with Admiral Donfekl sink or swim. They show that the current supposedly smooth relationship in the Defense Department may be a false facade. If this is the rase; there i.s more trouble brewing.

When a woman is indebted to several people who have entertained her, would it be all right to give one largo party and Invite all of them? A. It would be better perhaps, if a large number of people, to give several smaller affairs, inviting to each party only persons she thinks would be congenial. Q. What .should one do when with a crowd <if people, following a dance, and the others to stop somewhere to eat, and one is not hungry? A. One can always order something very light and make an attempt to eat it. Q. When calling on a friend and she is not at home, is it all right to leave a message of some kind? A. Yes. "Sorry to have missed you" may be written on one's card.
