Household Airiift Sets Pattern for Booming Aerial Cargo Service— Merrill's Airborne Arithmetic Puts Freight in the Skies By DOUGLAS LARSEN NEA Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON — (NEA) Several years ago Keith Merrill, a retired State Department official, decided to pull stakes and move lock, stock and furniture to the Virgin Islands. A canny world roamer, Keith clicked his abacus on the various costs of moving and chartered a Pan American plane to lift his possessions in one fell swoop to the islands. Friends thought he'd gone daft. But today the Merrill airlift has become the pattern for moving key government employes around the world. Thousands of private citizens making cross-country or intercontinental moves have also discovered that in many cases it's cheaper to fly your possessions than send them by conventional means. Seaboard & Western Airlines which haiilt cargo to And from Europe, showed the State Department that the cost of hauling 40,000 pounds of furniture from New York to Frankfurt, Germany, by aif would be $2,189. Comparable cost by boat would be $2,899, which includes expenses resulting from the long time boat deliveries take. But far more important to the air cargo business than family furniture moving is the fact that U. S. industry is applying Merrill's airborne arithmetic to its freight problems with startling results. Machine tool makers have become the biggest users of air for moving cargo. Customers are usually in a hurry for the machines. Less crating is required when the machines go by air, and the biggest savings is on reduced refurbishing after delivery. Perishables such as fruits and flow,ers are big air cargo items. After that the list is endless and includes clothing, plastics, baby chicks, phonograph records, dental supplies, perfume, magazines, fertilizers, race horses, candy and film. Two mail order houses, Sears and Florida Fashions, have begun to use air freight extensively, with.! good results. This will add up to making 1957 the record year for freight in the sky. During 1956, over 700 million ton miles of air cargo were flown by U. S. airlines. That was a 20 ^ which it allows -to stores.

Mn the rough. Africa White Hunter Alsoa Psychologist By E. A. Jones KAMPALA, Uganda UP1 — Noticing the quivering shoulders of the lady from Boston, the professional hunter moved up beside her from, his usual place a half pace behind. The crash of the lady's gun was followed a split-second later by that of the hunter. The elephant squealed once, sagged to its knees and rolled over, "Congratulations," said the hunter. "Right through the heart." Fortunately the lady did not enquire whose bullet found the mark. All Shapes and Sizes "More and more American big- game hunters are coming to Uganda," says Emmanuel Fangoud- is — the white hunter who has almost a monopoly of them. "They come in all shapes and sizes, but we try to make sure they go homej satisfied." | Some have lots of time and^ money. They want a luxury caravanserai through the bush and are prepared to pay the nearly $300 a day it costs. Some are in a hurry. They want to rush to Africa and knock off as much game in as short a time as possible. These have to be blinkered a little for their own good. Usually it would be possible, operating from Fangoudis' camp in the game plains near the Congo border, to shoot an elephant in the morning, an elend or some other antelope in the afternoon and a buffalo any time you like. But this type of carnage leaves the hunter nervously and physically exhausted and strangely dissatisfied. There are many ways in which an over-keen sportsman can be prevented from seeing too much game too quickly and many reasons to advance why he should not shoot everything he sees. Yet he is always left with the impression that it is he who is running the safari. Emmanuel is a psychologist as well as one of the most experienced hunters in Africa. "Mind you," he says. "I don't do what some hunters do—stretch out the safari by leading clients away from where I know the game is. "Sometimes J wish I could find the immoral courage to do it. A man takes much more pride in an elephant he has 'tracked down' for a couple of days than in one he knocks over half an hour fror camp. He isn't to know the hun er could have led him straight to it at any time during those two days." Game Dying Out Despite the fact that big game is fast dying out, the Uganda government does not object to visiting sportsmen. "A properly - organized'hunting safari makes little Inroad on the herds," says Game Warden T. R. Owen. "It . is the ^disturbance caused by badly organized parties, which prevents the game from breeding, that does the dam- Here's beef roost to please Hie whole family.

OHM "Besides, organized parties help to stop poachers, who take a far greater toll than license holders. There have been several instances of licensed hunters chasing poaching parties out of the game areas." Big-game hunting is a useful source of revenue to the country, too, quite apart from the .cost of the licenses. It is not a poor man's hobby. There is the white hunter's fee and guns, ammunition, tents, por ters and transport to be hired Even the hunter who is prepared to 'rough it,' shooting his own meat for the pot, pays about $2,200 for a month's safari, PROTECTIVE MEASURE The Lama monks of China de veloped ju-jitsu to protect themselves from the armed robbers on the desolate roads of old - China, according to the Encyclopedia Bri tannics.
