Lunching with Ted Graham and Charlie Bcnton, she fell that she actually had begun her new work as a stewardess. At intervals pilots would slop at the lahle lo speak lo Graham, who Introduced them lo Kay. It thrilled her, loo, to notice that passengers, dining in the reslau- 3'ant while awaiting the arrival of planes, recognized Grahnm and nodded in his direction. Obviously they were wondering about the girl with the famous pilot. i After lunch Benton went back lo his ollice and Ted took Kay on an inspcctio'i tour of the Central • Airport. There was a terminal building as large as a great city ruihoad station and as complete —with restaurant, cafeteria, hotel, ticket office, baggage rooms anc shops all under one roof. They climbed, past Ihe meteorological laboratories, to ttie roof and looked down at the elaborate network of runways on the field. It was, Kay thought, like a palch- work quilt—the smooth, yellowish concrete runways inlersccling al all angles. Below was the concrete ramp where planes discharged and tool; on passengers. While they watched, a big Iwin- molor taxied up lo (he gale and stopped.
