With!) half an hour after our arrival, w^ have been "up in the air" two times. A record. Visit Wm. K.' Ferguson. After pricing several hotels, we fln- ally choose the Ambassador, not because it has a radio in every room nor because It boasts of an indoor swimming pool for. guests, but because of the comfortable, cool and home-like rooms. After lunch we take the car out for a drive through the city, viewing the government buildings and finally ending at the Congressional Library. Here, on the curb, we encounter a'frieridly, agreeable sightseeing repre- sertf&We, a Mr 1 . Coltraln by name who sells us the Idea that a-full day ences lend an air of antiquity to the andscape. Far back from the road; are ;he Immense, dbubie-chlmneyed mansions of the ; : 01<i aristocracy. At Alexandria, we pause a moment to' inspect the Old Christ church built in 1773 arid attended by George Washington. As we sit to the pew, once occupied by the Father of his Country, strange emotions surge over us when we realize that in this locale, only a little over a hundred and fifty years ago thitf 1 nation was launched on the sea of Independence^ Washington's' pew is square with seats on three sides and a place for a charcoal stove in the center. Overlooking the city and towering above the sky-line In its unfinished majesty, rises the George Washington Masonic Memorial,'which will not be completed until 1932. It Is only a few miles to "Washington, and as we approach the city, we pass 1 the ' Aviation fields A-wild'idea Is-born in-the four minds "at-one; and the same-tune. For two of-us itf is purrfirslj,'trip into the In another five sdautes, ! we ar WJUU otjllft no uii^ »v»w*» V-™- — — —— wltti him tomorrow .will give us comprehensive view of Washington rid vicinity. We find Mr. Ferguson without difficulty and now begins an interesting trip through this most eautlful library of the world. A few figures will 'suffice to acquaint the eader with the substantiation of this tatement. There' are about 4,000,000 olumes in the building or 153 miles f book shelves. The British Museum n London and the Imperial Library in Paris surpass it In size, covering as t does, thirteen acres of floor space. Dolliver once said that only the pear- y gates of Heaven could match tne flawless be'auty and grandeur of its white marble columns; while the carving on the stair case, depleting,the industry of the world Is an example of exquisite sculpture. Dine at Herzog's. On reaching the sidewalk, again our friendly guide is waiting for us and when we tell him we wish to dine at he kindly offers to pilot us. Such extreme courtesy and consideration amazes us. We reach Herzog's by a narrow dark stairway and are led to an Herzog's Sea Food Cafe, on the wharf, slght-seeis are rushed through with the swiftness of a grist mill. Everywhere there is hurry—hjustle—"step lively." The guides and the guards alike give you a friendly shove at the en- irance of each building; you are always "just in time" to catch a party who started a few moments before you did and you rush through the government offices and department^ with seemingly but one object, to lower a world's record for endurance. We note this again at Mount Vernon, that most sacred shrine of all that is dear to tho true American's heart. But we will come to that. Speed—the watch word of the United Stfate&-flte Into our plans exactly—however, we cannot but feel that for those who delight in the more leisurely and studied charms of travel, for those who have the time to build around each of these historic spots, a blf of romance, this new and modern system has lost* a great deal. Mr. Coltram Is at the door of the hotel at eight-thirty a. m. with his Packard and we begin our day of sight-seeing in Washington. We go first to the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, where dally $18,000,000.00 of currency Is printed and 90,000,000 Stamps are made. We are amazed at the fact that It takes thirty days to finish a dollar bill and we watch the process of manufacture of both stamps . and bank notes, with the Interest of | one unaccustomed to details of this nature. Inspect "Spirit of St. Louis." Our next order Is a large one—seeing both the old and the new Smithsonian Institutes within the period of hours instead of days. A catalog of either of these Immense museums, would fill a book. Suffice it here to mention Just a few of the features Which/appeal to us. On entering the old Institute, we see first the "Spirit of St. Louis," so small and dlmunltlye that it seems Impossible that In this frail craft, our valiant "Llndy" crossed the unchartered air seas and brought both ame and fortune to himself and his icloved country. Here also, Is the first utom<>ttl!0. tte first steam engjlne. ifi first : airplane and then, all the wonders of this United States. The gr'ouping of period costumes, worn by ,he wives of the presidents from Wash- ngton to Coolldge, Inclusive, forms an Interesting;study of woman's apparel. The new Institute, properly called, the United States National Museum, holds extensive bird arid animal collections, most noted being the Roosevelt Af- New York and the collection of W. A. Clark contains originals of many of the old masters. No mater how few are the moments we spend in a gallery we come away With some gems which will be a source of future pleasure and satisfaction In davs to come. We visit, next, the White House, official home of the presidents and their wives; our guide tells us that most visitors are disappointed In the White House. Certainly there Is nothing pre- «ntlous about It, but the reserved dignity of Its rather simple rooms and its beautiful gardens, should leave nothing to be desired. Our congressman being out of the city, we gain admittance to only the East room, the Blue and Red rooms being denied us. J. with his usual affluence, talks the guide into admittance to these two rooms without the usual formality of a special pass or card of recommendation, while we stand outside and feel our extreme Inferiority. of the Union, funded Ma the sur unpretentious room, overlooking Potomac, where among simple _ roundlngs,,we eat delicious lobster. To those who may see in our hurriec attempt to cover this capitol city o our nation in a day or two, something bordering - on- the sacreligious -let^us explain that the-tempo of the Amert can people has Increased at such a te«iflTspeed during the past few years leisurely, slowly-timed sight Ican expedition. The Indian display, eaturing their natural habitat and industries, is particularly Interesting. Directly In line with the Capitol bulldlngi the Washington Monument, and Arlington cemetery and part .of the landscape scheme with which this city Is being laid out, stands the Lincoln Memorial, huge, simple, glisten- ng In its white splendor bearing, over the immense statue of Lincoln, these few words; "In this temple, as In the hearts of the people for whom he saved the Union, the memory of Abraham Lincoln Is enshrined forever." A short ride takes us to the Pan-American building. We enter through the patio, filled with tropical plants and birds and proceed to the vartousrooms in which are held the social and business functions 'of our Latin- American diplomats.. A rather simple garden draws from orie"of> the ladies-tin the party, this literary gem. *','3»e, exquisite simplicity Is perfectly 'marvel QUS " Deviled Crab tempting. Deviled crab is the delicacy which tempts our sharpened appetites for lunch, after which we are ready for the Capitol. When Constantino Bru- mldi was ostracized from Italy, the United States gained materially, for his paintings all through the Capitol are works of art of which we may well be proud. Besides the unfinished friezes around the great dome, there Is an enormous painting in the dome Itself and numerous smaller pieces throughout the building. We cannot burden the reader with all the wonders we see here, the great historical paintings, the various rooms of the Supreme Court, House of Representatives, Senate, to say nothing of costly staircases. Such mention would (and does) fill guide books. We stop in the Senate chamber for a few moments to listen to Senator Hale, of Maine, address the empty chairs (there are only about ten senators at their desks. Vice President Curtis is presiding. The story goes that Mr. Curtis delivered a speech the other day. and when he sat down, everyone said it was the best thing he ever did. In Statuary Hall, where, each state may place the statues of two of her most respected men, we find Iowa represented by Klrkwood nd Harlan. At one point In the hall, a vhlsper may be heard, from a far corner, which again, brings forth a llt- rary masterpiece from a lady in the >arty, "The Eccentricity of Acoustics." Certainly a fair mouth-full. J. Holds $40,000,000.00. Our trip continues past the old Ford Theatre where Lincoln was assassinated, as well as the house where he was taken following the tragedy. J. gets his hands on $40,000,000,00 at thlo mint but he doesn't keep It long. This ill takes place In the Treasury bulld- ng. On now, to Arlington Cemetery, where we are prlveleged to witness 'rom the white marble amphitheater, ;he military funeral of Commander General Neville. Here, also, is the grave of the Unknown Soldier, guarded jy a sentry. The color contrast of the countless white stones, which mark the resting place of our soldier dead, igalnst a background of deepest green, is one of impressive solemnity. Mount Vernon..

U. S. Mail Aviator to Visit irt Algona. Charles Pedley and wift r of Texas are planntug on visiting Mr. Sy's parents, Mr. and Mrs. George Hd ey in Algona; and d*^" 1 *"!" and friends in and near Algona about July 20. They expect to drive up from Dallas m their auto >as Charles thinks It wouldn't be much of a - ,'^iorito fly, ho being a professional flyer. This Is the tenth year of flying for tWs former Algona farm boy. He has been a transport pilot for som« time and has been flying mall Planes on the S. A. T. lines for the past two and a half years. For a number of jcars youns Mr. Pedley was one of the most aartrfg stunt flyer* in the cour, L ry. Last winter Young Pedley had a close .can and only saved himself from death by sWllful handling of the Pl** e , a " c * ^ landing gear had. been damaged. The The Associated Press, under date lino from Temple, Texas, tells of the aviator's narrow escape as follows: "Pilot Charles F. Pedley, flying a Brownsville to Fort Worth air mall plane, was forced down by a heavy fog near 'Temple tonight, coming to the earth untoiured after his landing gear had been- wrecked, by a windmill or a -reawy«o. ~s directions about ten miles north of Temple. Coming-to> a low level In an attempt to get his bearings, he crashed into what he at first though a windmill, that tore away ° n ^uT^ £h«^ Guessing at it by lights on the nearby highway, he landed In a farm -yard near the field. Only a damaged propeller marked his forced one-wheel landing. Pedley will resume his flight to Fort Worth early Monday morning." .
