PAGE TWO THE SEDALTA DEMOCRAT, SUNDAY. MAY 22. 1927. IUndbergh - I Winged .Way Across Atlantic t (Continued From Page One.) America's ambassador to France, Mfron T. Herrick and by Frenchman of high position. Jut Lindbergh was too weary seemingly to know what it was all about. He smiled and said: 4Thank yop. I am awfully happy," and then hi fatigue could be fought off no lottger and he seemed to go to sleep standing there on his feet. Outside, the crowd was howling for a sight of the hero who has won the heart of France as no American probably had before. Brilliant search lights were focused on the bajcony of the building into which IJfcdbergh had been carried. But JJre crowd had to be disappointed - Lindbergh could do no more. TThe American ambassador came to; the balcony and waved the avi - atpr's helmet at the crowd, which kqpt shouting: "The pilot the pilot Let us see Lindbergh!" Xfindbergh, asleep on his feet, was lifted up and carried to an automobile and hurried to Paris, a few miles away, to sleep after so many hours when even to close his eyes for a moment might have meant death. Tonight he lies in bed in his country's embassy. It was after mid night when he reached there 41 hours after he got out of bed in New York to make the great adventure in which already so many others had failed. It was on the Ambassador's In sistence that the youth permitted himself to go to the embassy and the car had difficulty in making Its way through the tremendous traffic to - the residence of America's offi cial 4 representative. There, French aviators assisted the birdman to alight. He stumbled as he slept in their arms. "Good old fellow, they shouted, as - they bade Mm good night. The world must wait until tomorrow to hear from Lindbergh's lips the story of the flight that has made him forever famous. What thoughts he had while flying in solitude through two days and a night along the American continent, aCross the Atlantic, over the fields of France, hidden from his weary eyes by the darkness of night these things only young Lindbergh knows tonight, for he was too tired at the end of his long voyage to say anything to anybody. of him. We had the greatest confidence In his abilitv to mirrppd if anybody could. He was greatly liked among his comrades in the National Guard and we all swell with pride to think that one of "Our Boys' was the one to accomplish this glorious achievement. It is a signal honor for Charlie, and the Missouri National Guard feels proud that we can share a little ia hat glory." his feat opened the magic doors of stage, screen and advertising, which mean fat contracts for public appearances and use of his name on trade goods, H. L. Rothafel (Roxy) announced this afternoon that he had cabled his Paris representative authorizing him to offer Captain Lindbergh $25,000 for a week's appearance at the Koxy Theatre. Home Town Celebration. Rejoicing at St. Louis. By The Associated Press. ST. LOUIS, May 21. - Blowing of iactory ana locomotive whistles in augurated a tumultuous celebration here late today of successful completion of Captain Charles Lindbergh's non - stop flight from New York to Paris in his plane, "Spirit of St. Louis." "Captain ' Lindbergh's achievement is perfectly marvelous and fully Justifies our confidence in him," said Harry F. Knight, one of the chief backers of the flight. "There Is nothing more we can say. He is the whole show." Harold M. Bixby, president of the Chamber of - Commerce and another chief backer of the flight, cabled his congratulations to Lindbergh. , "You have done what couldn't be done," he wired. "All St Louis is talking Lindbergh and nothing else. Your magnificient courage and keen judgment have been splendid ly rewarded. Heartiest congratula tions. Will see you In New York." The bells of Christ Church Cathedral which are rung on civic occasions of high importance, were among the first to sound the note of success for the St. Louis flyer, who was here last week on his hop, skip and jump from the Pacific coast to the continent of Europe. The noise - making was reminiscent of the celebration here last fall when the Cardinals won the city's first baseball pennant In 3S years. All day the name of Lindbergh had been on the lips of St. Louis - Ian s at work and at leisure. The newspapers and all sources of possible information were besieged with telephone queries. Extra editions of newspapers sold like hot cakes. TThe small group of businessmen who backed Lindbergh by contributing approximately $25,000 toward his expenses was composed of Harold MG Bixby, president of the Chamber o& Commerce; Harry F. Knight, investment banker; hi3 son Harry Hall Kpight, president of the St. LouH Flying Club; Major A. B. Lambert, pioneer aviation leader; J. D. Woost - er Lambert, vice president and treasurer, Lambert Pharmical Company; Major Wm. B. Robertson, head oC Robertson Aircraft Corporation; Earl C Thompson, vice president Indemnity Company of America; and G4obe - Democrat Publishing Company. LITTLE FALLS, Minn., May 21. (AP) Pandemonium broke loose here when a crowd jammed in front of the local newspaper heard the announcement that Charles A. Lindbergh, who grew to manhood here, had . successfully completed the New York - Paris airplane hop. Cheers, back slapping and here and there a tear ended the tension that has gripped this town of 7,000 since "our Charley" took off. A blaring band added to the din. whistles shrieked and bells rang. President Congratulates. WASHINGTON, May 21(AP) President Coolidge in a congratulatory cablegram to be delivered to Charles A. Lindbergh in Paris, told the Trans - Atlantic flier that the ''American people rejoice with me at the brilliant termination of your heroic flight." The message of the president sent to the American embassy, Paris, for transmission ' to Lindbergh immediately on his arrival follows: "The American people rejoice with me at the brilliant termination of your heroic flight. The first non - stop flight of a lone aviator across the Atlantic crowns the record of American aviation and in bringing the greetings of the American peole to France, you like wise carry the assurance of our of those intrepid Nungesser and Coli, spirits first ventured on your exploit and likewise a message of our continued anxiety concerning their fate." He's From Missouri. ST. LOUIS, Mo., May 21. (AP) The ''Spirit of Missouri" was reflected in an exchange of telegrams upon the completion of Charles Lindbergh's trans - Atlantic flight. A telegram from Lou Holland, president of the Kansas City Chamber of Commerce to Harold M. Bixby, president of the St. Louis Chamber and a backer of the Lindbergh flight reads: "Congratulations. Your boy Lindbergh is a wonder. He is making history for Missouri. You have cause to be proud and I share with you in your joy' Bixby's reply, in a telegram to Holland was: "The Spirit of St. Louis and the spirit of Kansas City seem to De comingled in this accomplishment for Missouri. Now if we can just get some of this same spirit into mir rnmmon nroeress in this state through our respective organia tions . all will be well. Many thanks." carry admiration Frenchmen, whose bold Desired to Show 'Em. PARIS, May 22. - (Sunday: AP) Before Captain Charles A. Lindbergh went to sleep early this morning after his New York to Paris flight he asked Ambassador Herrick and others who had taken charge of him to let him go back to his plane in order to show the people "how the windows work." ''Never mind your old windows," said the ambassador, ''come and get a rest at the embassy." Before he went to bed, however, Captain Lindbergh informed Ambassador Herrick that he had brought two or three letters of introduction with him because he explained "this is a new country to me and nobody knows me here." "Now you go on to bed," said the ambassador, "and don't worry about being a stranger. There isn't anyone in France who won't know you when you awake."

JOSEPH, Mo., May 21. - - (AP) Friday, Carl H. Wolfley, vice - president of the National Aeronautic association, was laughed at, when a local paper printed his estimate on when Captain Charles Lindbergh would land in Paris. Tonight he Is acclaimed as a wizard in aeronautical computation. He missed his guess by only eight minutes and 44 seconds. Wolfley estimated It would take Lindbergh 33 hours, 20 miautes and 16 second. He said at the time, he figured the speed of the plane, the weather reports and the ability of the motor. Not Forget Countrymen. PARIS, May 21. Captain Lindbergh came down almost at the spot where Captains Nungesser and Coli took off two weeks ago. The fate of the two French fliers was in all minds during the hours of tension and the people, enthusiastic aa they were and generous in their praise of the man from the west could not forget their countrymen. They spoke sadly amongst themselves of "poor Nungesser, poor Coli, poor boys." Few could see Lindbergh as he landed, but the word was passed quickly that he had gone into the administration building and they wanted to see the popular hero. Broke World's Record. PARIS, May 21. Captain Chas. A. Lindbergh established a new world's non - stop straight line long distance record in his New York to Paris flight. In covering 3.600 miles he broke the world mark of 3,400 miles set by the two Frenchmen, Coste and Rignot, in their Paris to Yask, Persia, flight last October. Mother Sheds Tears of Joy. By The Associated Press. DETROIT, Mich., May 21. "That's all that matters." In these words, Mrs. Evangeline Lodge Lind bergh, mother of Captain Charles Lindbergh, expressed her relief when informed that her intrepid son had arrived safely at Lebour - get Flying Field, France, after an epochal flight from New York. Mrs. Lindbergh, who had been silently waiting since the take - off from New York yesterday morning for the word of her son's safe arrival, allowed herself a few tears of joy and then said, T am deeply thankful for his safety and ap - iveciative of the true sympathy expressed by so many people." Asked whether she had been confident of his success, she countered with: "How could any one be confident?" Then she added: "I know if it were possible for any pilot, given a good machine to make the flight, that he would." May Fly Over Pacific. ST. LOUIS, Mo., May 21.

A monument to the memory of Charles Nungesser and Francois Coli, French aviators, missing eince they left Paris last week to at.temnt a non - stOD flight to New York, is the aim of Radio Station KVOO, here, which tonight started a campaign to raise $100,000. The station belongs to the ' Southwestern Sales Corporation. "It is fitting," Roy C. Griffin, manager of the station said, "that this memorial be erected in St. Louis, the home of Captain Chas. Lindbergh, who today completed his flight from New York to Paris. "The memorial, however, would in no sense be in honor of Lindbergh, but would be in memory of the Frenchmen who, so far as Is known lot their lives in their heroic attempt to span the Atlantic." Griffin said he had talked by telephone to Harold Bixby, president of the St. Louis Chamber of Commerce, who heartily endorsed the move. Arrangements are planned whereby the fund for the memorial will be raised by public subscription through various broad casting stations over the country. "Brings Aerial Union' WASHINGTON. May 21. (AP) President Doumergue of France, in a message of congratulation to President Coolidge tonight viewed the successful trans - Atlantic flight of Captain Linbergh as the dream of Nungesser and Coli come true and as bringing about the aerial union of the United States and France. ''All Frenchmen" he said, "unreservedly admire his courage and re - m - . .. i ... . . . in his success, l congrauuaie By The Associated Press. ST. LOUIS, Mo., May 21. The financing of "Slim" Lindbergh's epic trans - Atlantic flight parallels that of Christopher Columbus' voyage of discovery. How the modest Missouri National Guardsman, a barnstorming flyer and air mail pilot inspired the confidence of St. Louis enthusiasts to place him in competition for the Ortelg $25,000 prize by financing the flight of the "Spirit of St. Louis" was told here today by Harold M. Bixby, president of the St. Louis Chamber of Commerce. "Slim almost bought fame on credit," said Bixby, who with Harry H. Knight, president of the St. Louis Flying Club, organized tbe St. Louis backing of "our flyer." "The whole cost of the thing," said Knight, "including a pretty liberal week's allowance for Slim's celebration of the event in Paris and his return to St. Louis will be only $14,000 all told, and part of this we borrowed. Queen Isabella, pawning the royal jewelry to discover America, never did a more economical job. "In fact when the detailed cost of bringing the plane back from Europe was discussed Lindbergh insisted that he be permitted to fly it back to Keep dow nexpenses. "About six months ago," said Bix by "Wm. D. Robertson of the Robertson Aircraft Corporation, for whom Lindbergh was an air mail flyer, brought Lindbergh in to see me. There was no preliminary or studied sales approach in Slim's proposition. It was short but sweet: " 'I've saved $2,000 flying mail and I want to fly to Paris. This is about all that was ever in Lindbergh's mind I want to fly to Paris everything else, risk, danger, navigation, everything was incidental if not inconsequential in this dare - devil kid's mind. He simply wanted to fly to Paris and was willing to bet his life he could with his $2,000 thrown in. "Harry H. Knight, and myself tried raising some of the money. Major Albert Bond Lambert, dean of aviation in St. Louis gave $1,000. So did Harry F. Knight, Sr., and Wooster Lambert and E. Lansing Ray, pub lisher of the Globe Democrat, Charles It. Richardson and E. C. Thompson also contributed. we had to get hurry up action because his entry in the Orteig $25, 000 contest required entry sixty days before flying, so Knight and I bor rowed the rest of the money. "Lindbergh was not concerned with the chances he wanted to flv to Paris he never talked of difficul ties. He was too sure of himself for that. He realized his greatest handicap was not being a navigator. The flying Swede made only one reservation as a result of this short - coming. "That was if the fog had been so dense over New Foundland that he could not have got his bearings around St. Johns, before putting to sea, he would have turned back. This is the only possible exception to his through - to - Paris plan he entertained." Lindbergh came" to St. Louis about two years ago after a barnstorming career as a flier and later went to Kelly Field, San Antonio, Tex., where he qualified in training for the pursuit division. Returning to St. Louis with the intention of entering the then contemplated air mail service, he took a job as helper to C. E. Scott, who flys Bixby's plane. He also joined the 35th Aid Division of the Missouri National Guard unit here, becoming a flight commander and captain. He also was made captain in the army reserve corps. A delegation of St. Loulsians will meet Lindbergh in New York upon his return in about two weeks, the backers said. They will try to persuade him to stay in New York and accept a vaudeville engagement although so far he has steadfastly refused to join the ranks of the exhibitors. He will fly the "Spirit of St. Louis" back to St. Louis from New York for a home coming celebration. After that the backers are undecided as to Slim's future, saying it depended largely upon himself. Lindbergh insisted before he started the flight that the $25,000 Orteig prize, which he has now won, be turned over to his backers. They, however, have exhibited reluctance toward acceptink a "refund" and perhaps will turn it over entirely to Slim. Bonds Issue for Public Schools Carried Friday .

Because of adverse weather reports from Horta Azores, Commander Francesco De Pinedo, Italian four continent flier, announced tonight that he would not take off from Tre - passey until early tomorrow morning. The start for the Azores had ben scheduled for eight o'clock Atlantic daylight time. When late tonight reports from Ilorta said the weather was moderating Commander De Pinedo decided to advance the hour of his start. He planned to hop off for the Azores about midnight, he announced. De Pinedo said he had given up hope of reaching Rome on May 24, but hoped to reach the end of his YMae oil the 26th. miles long and the state. One seventh of the total "area of the state was under water and the flood was threatening weak points along the Atchafalaya, 140 miles northwest of New Orleans with a total acreage amounting to almost half as much as already has felt the weight of the waters. A stubborn fight was maintained at McCrea on the Atchafalaya, wherA the current was ripping em bankment to pieces. More than 2,000 workers were fighting in the mud and rain to hold the flood waters off of sugar plantations of Pointe Coupee, Assumption, Iberville,, West Baton Rouge and Terre Bonne Parishes. With the situation critical along the levee line the evacuation of the Evangeline Country proceded rapidly. The population of the concen tration camp at LaFayette had sprung to ten thousand, passing the total number of inhabitants of tne city itself. Refugees are streaming out of the threatened section. Baton Rouge concentration camps were receiving hundreds of persons from Pointe Coupee Parish, as women and chil dren and aged and infirm were sent out in response to the warning issued yesterday by Flood Relief Dictator John M. Parker. As a result of a warning delivered personally by Secretary Hoover to residents of the St. Martinville section, the stream of refugees pour ing into Larayeue was growing greater. Roads were clogged with the slow moving lines of trucks, motor cars and wagons moving out of the doomed section and lines of empties going back in for other loads. Water is expected to reach St. Martinville, the heart of the Acadian country, by noon tomorrow. Residents left at Breaux Bridge had moved into the second stories of their homes. From the windows of the top floors the flood waters were visible, constantly creeping nearer. The streets of the town were expected to be flooded today. Residents spent yesterday moving their furniture on scaffolds and preparing to evacuate. Telephone advices from New Iberia were that refugees from Lo - reauville and other points in the lower Teche country already had started to pour in there. Arnaud - ville, ' Cecilia, Port Barre, Leonville, Henderson and other settlements already were under from three to ten feet of water. The water, which is coming from the breaks in the rMt has laises levees and the At - XJCL JUU V. - chafalaya levees at Melville was reported to be rising. Eight thousand refugees had been registered at Layafette and officials or the camp there said they were coming in at the rate of 300 an hour. Preparations are being made to take care of 15,000 by the end of the week. MISSOURIANS IN CALIFORNIA PICNIC Clellan, a former Sedalian, now of Long Beach, Calif.
