Washington, ttJ.R) A small Island in the Pacific whose mere existence was debated for years seems likely to become an important link in future American-Australian airplane routes. The island is Kingman Reef, a mere dot in the wide Pacific, but important as a seaplane landing base because it contains a deep, still lake completely protected from ocean waves by a circular rim of land. William T. Miller, superintendent of airways for the Commerce department, recently visited the I island and thereafter announced: "Kingman Reef probably will figure prominently in the development of commercial aviation on the route to the Antipodes as one of the two stops betwen Honolulu and New Zealand."

O Between flashes of agony that came to her as she Jay on her Dallas, Tex, hospital bed, little Grace Marie Long 'confided to her nurse that "Vie could hardly wait until she could get up and play games with her friends."

Her right leg was Amputated at the knee afier it had been cruelly shattered by a truck and parents, nurse, and doctors waited In dread for the enomenl they would have lo tell hr Islands Annexed by U. 8. Miller, during the last year has headed four expeditions from Honolulu to Kingman Reef and the nearby islands of Palmyra, Jar vis, Howland, Baker and Se-moa. His object was to obtain weather data and to survey possible landing places for airplanes. .'j a result of these trips, the islands of Jaryis, ' Howland and Baker, which the United States and Great Britain long had loosely claimed without being much concerned about them, were formally annexed to the United States. The interesting thing about Kingman Reef, which lies roughly at the intersection of a line . drawn south from Honolulu with ' another drawn west from Panama, is that for years its mere existence was debated. Various sailors had sighted land there, but in 1897 the British warship Penguin advised the Admiralty that it had "sailed directly over the area where land was once reported," and that none had been found. The British sea lords ordered it stricken from the navigation charts. : - Sighted in 1921 In 1921. however, the XJ. S. S.
