which I am now engaged I hope to add at least two or three new modes of travel to my list Maybe on a camels or elephants back may be on a dogsled maybe in a jinriksha maybe in an oxcart maybe something else I wouldnt know what it might be I only know that Im on the look While there are others with a yen for travel who doubtless could produce a much more for midable list of land on andunder the water and in the air mine sort of sur prises me when I see it on paper My land transport background Includes bicycle tricycle buggy surrey wagons of all sorts freight and passenger trains lo Iowa Road Accidents Claim Three By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Three additional motor vehicle deaths were reported in Iowa over the weekend The victims in comotive horseback back automobile donkeyback truck mule Perhaps there are others that have escaped my memory There are however two rather notable omissions I never occupied a baby carriage because I was born on a farm where that mode of transport would have had lim ited usefulness Second and more surprising I havent ever sat astride a motorcycle From Raft to Battlewagon On water the craft to which I have been exposed are almost as diverse in character as these land conveyances I have mentioned includes raft rowboat canoe sailing vessels water skis and water toboggan speedboat cabin ships cruiser ocean liner LST destroyer carrier battleship the USS flat tops Midway and Wright and submarine the In the air Ive been borne by just about every kind of conven tional plane developed since those primitive Jennies of World War I My first flight across the Atlantic was in a giant Boeing so commodious it had a dining room and Pullmantype berths My last trip to and from Europe Asia and Africa was in the lineal descendant of a World War II B29 Once I flew from Hawaii to San Francisco in that unbelievable monster of the air called the Mars Oxygen by Mouthpiece On the commercial airliners Ive been a passenger on just about every type of plane used in that business I flew over the Andes in a twinengined Panagra craft which employed oxygen mouth pieces alongside the when we were western hemis pheres loftiest peak Aconcagua Over Switzerland and within spitting distance of the famed Matterhorn it was a DC 6 Once at age 50 or thereabouts I entertained the silly notion that I ought to fly my own plane J never got quite to the solo flight stage though My good sense took command of the situation just in the nick of time The training plane at that time was either a Taylor or a Piper Cub Within the past two years Ive experienced my first ride in a helicopter In one of those con traptions its quite easy to im agine how a bird feels Youre really exposed to the ozone in a Ultimatum to U N on Suez PARIS UP The United Nations has 48 hours in which to decide whether it wants to use the BritishFrench salvage fleet to help clear the Suez Canal an important source said Monday Unless the 15 ships and their crews are called on to assist in the work and are assured protection by U N forces the salvage force will be withdrawn after that time the informant said The reason the source said is that BritishFrench troops are to be withdrawn from the rest of Port Said before Christmas and the salvage fleet has been instructed to withdraw before the last troops leave unless the U N decides to use the ships and their crews The informant said failure to use BritishFrench ships could clearing the canal as much as three or four months because a similar salvage fleet could not je assembled quickly from other nations Meanwhile the BritishFrench orces have begun the last phase f their withdrawal from Egypt after a tanksupported attack on guerrillas in retaliation for the ambush slaying of a British of ficer The deadline for the final pull out was not announced sources indicated it might be Tuesday or Wednesday But Lt Gen Sir Hugh Stockwell com mander of the BritishFrench ask force implied some of the Allied
