POST, GATTY GIVEN A NOISY WELCOME (Continued Frojj Page One) nine days since we left New York.' 1 Two Bad Stretches Pressed with questions concerning the long and l^azardous journey, Post summed up the entire journey in about ltK- words. "We had two bad stretches," he said. "They were from Berlin to Moscow, where we encountered bad weathe/, and from Siberia to Nome, across the Bering s'rait. There we- ran Into violent storms—the worst of tne entire trip. Rain, snow and sleH bert constancy against our nlrne and ;n our fa'jes.

Of course,' we had to use th.- compass the entire way. G'atty Is a marvelous navigator." "How does it fee!" to pilot a ship around the world?" he was asked. "No different th.-'n flying a ship anywhere," he replied. "And take it from me," Gatty interposed, "he's the best pilot in the world." Each seemed eager to give the other credit fot their success. Gatty -was asked whether he took the.controls, at all. ""No", he answered, "my job; was navigating the ship. Post 'was at the controls throughout the entire flight" They were then asked if they thought they had suffered any physical affects from the arduous journey. "We never felt better", they responded. "Was there ever a 'time during the journey when you lost hope?" Post and Gatty were asked. Never Lost Courage "No," Post answered emphatically. "We always thought we would get through, even when the going was tough'over the Bering sea." It was not until after 1 o'clock Thursday 'morning that the applauding crowds permitted them to go to- bed after they landed Wednesday they had still to undergo the ordeal—and the thrills of • a formal reception by the city of New York, with all the traditional tumult and applause that accompanies such events. But the dogged determination that field them'to theii course from New York to England, to Germany, Russia, Siberia and Alaska, and an obliging, though modest, willingness to. please the:r back&rs and the people themselves, led them to forego what would have perhaps pleased them more—another twelve hours of rest. Neither one of these amazing men would admit, even when he was practically forcibly sent to .bed Wednesday night to being exhausted- "I could do ft again," Post stubbornly persisted, and Gatty echoed his words. .Yet it seemed to those who watched them tumble out of the big monoplane at Roosevelt field, and who followed.them thru roaring multitudes • to the Ritz- Carlton hotel, late Wednesday night, that -they mtst be near the cracking point, at times they seemed • to be -walking in their sleep. Questions—because of their deafness—had to be shauted. But the questions were always willingly answered, not boastfully, but respectfully and modestly. Ths reception committee, after consulting with V. }• Hall, wealthy oil operator, who backed the world- girdling tour, bad arranged to hurry the men to their Ho'-' ?-•' •,-.-••'-« them retire at onct. Yet it was nearly five hovirs aft<?t fH'y M- ....sped down upon Roosevelt Held before the tired fliers paid good-night. The time had beef» consumed in receiving interviewers, submitting to motion picture cameramen, talking —somewhat, haltingly—for sound movies, and what was very important to them jubl then, eating. There was one disappointment in an. otherwise jovous occasion. While little Mrs. Post, beaming thresh her tears, was thf first to greet he.r distinguished husband at the field, throwing her arms around him as his feet struck solid earth once more.

SPEHITSAI WASHINGTON. <ILR>—Chairman J«me» E.-Stone of the federal (arm board charged Tue»d«y that grain traders were attempting to 41»credit the board's work is order to prevent the country's farmer* or-, ganizing. - ,.Stone said the traders were attempting to dictate, the board's policy but that he did not purpose to allow them tc-interfere.

Stone said he hoped the .statement would, have the e(feet of causing wheat growers to reduce their acreage^. The board statement .was , issued after. President Hoover suggested a'.'deffniU policy was. desirable. The board committed to a new policy of restricting domestic sales ot government wheat, turned Thursday to foreign markets witli confidence that additional outle's for .its surplus stocks would be found. The board is studying the world situation in much .the same way that.a private" business concern would seek .new markets if, its usual channels of trade were cut off. July, August and September 'are the best period of the year for wheat exports.
