Prof. William H. Hobbs, of the geol-
Sgy department was in conference
yesterday morning with Major L. I.
F'rederick, editor of :the Rockford
{IlL) Morning Star, and Bert I. J.
IUassell, airplane pilot, to work out
te final plans for a landing and re-
fueling at Mt. Evans of the plane in
which Hassell will attempt a Rock-
ord-to-Stockholm flight early in
July.,
Near the Mt. Evans headquarters
of the University KGreenlad expedi-
tion of which Professor Hobbs is the
director is a long, fat stretch of
ground suitable f:r landing and tak-
ing off. The gasoline for, refueling
will be 'shipped to Mt. Evans and
carried in by members of the Hobbs'
xpedition.
To Use Stinson Phlue
The plane which Hassell will fly is
now being built by the Stinson com-
pany at Northville. When it sweeps
into the northernmost outpost of the
Iniversity it will be painted yellow
and .blue, the colors of the University
and the colors of Hassell's native land,
Sweden.
The distance between Rockford and
Stockholm is approximately 4,200
miles, to be covered in two or three
hops. The first jump of 2,100 mile's
will be made from Rockford to Mt.
Evans where the plane will land and
refuel. The journey can then be fin-
isied in ;one 2,100 mile hop to Stock-
holm, or a landing can be made about
midway on Iceland.
Tentative plans -are also being laid
for a second flight from this country
to Europe via Greenland and Iceland,
to be sponsored by the 'Ford Motor
company, although nothing final has
yet begn determined. Professor Hobbs
was recently called into conference
with William Mayo, chief engineer
for the -Ford Motor company, and
Major Lanphier with regard to a pos-
sible flight over Greenland and land-
ing at Mt. Evans.
Expect ScIent ift Results
Very important scientific ,results
may come from these flights across
Greenland, Professor Hobbs 'said yes-
terday, for both parties have agreed
to ca'rry self-recording aerological in-
struments on their planes. Automatic
barographs, thermographs, and hygro-
graphs would preserve a record of
conditions prevaling all across 'the
'cePchief engineer of another large
airfslane copany, whose name was
not disclosed, has suggested to Pro-
fessor Hobbs that his company might
be willing to send a plane to Green-
land this summer to operate from Mt.
Evans as a base and to make trip's
for scientific investigation and collec-
tion of meteorological data.

FLOYD BENNETT
DIES IN QUEBEC
Byrd's Polar Aviator oi! Of Lbar
Pneumonia Contrated On
Jreme-]ele Trip
(By Associated Press)
QUEBEC, April 25.-Floyd Bennett,
who flew over the North pole with
Commander Richard E. Byrd, died at
10:50 yesterday morning from double
pneumonia.
Bennett's death came while his wife
was near him, herself a patient in the
san hospital with tonsilitis. His
closest friend, Commander Byrd, also
? was there, having ru'shed here as
soon as Bennett's condition became
serious.
Col. Charles A. Lindbergh hopped
off on his return flight to New York at
11:20 o'clock yesterday morning, hn-
4ware of the death of Bennett, whose
life was the purpose of his air race
here Tuesday with serium to aid in
combatting the pneumonia from which
Bennett suffered.
Lindbergh P'ad 14't r e eity Ifo'
Battlefield park, which he had u'sed
as a landing field, before word came
from the hospital. He flew over the
city before heading for New York and
his plane crossed directly over Jeffrey
Ha'le hospital where his fellow aviat-
or lay dead.
SBennett was brought to Jeffrey Hale
hospital by airplane from Lake St.
Agnes Sunday after being stricken
while commanding an air expedition
to the relief of the stranded transat-
lantic flyers on Greenley island.
Bennett undertook this relief ex-
pedition with Bernt Balchen although
both had to leave sickbeds to do so.
After Bennett's cold turned into
pneumonia and he had to drop out of
the expedition, Bachen pushed on
without him. Bennett's condition be-
came increasingly serious as the days
and hours passed and this morning
'specialists brought here from New
York announced that everything was
in vain and that he was dying.
WORK BEGINS ON
NEW LANDSCAPING
Authorization of plans for the land-
'scaping of the new museum building
and the architecture building were an-
nounced yesterday by Irving W. Truet-
tner, maintenance inspector of the
Building and Grounds department.
Work is to be started immediately, in
order that the landscaping may be
completed this spring.
In order to keep expense's down to
a reasonable figure it has been found
necessary, according to Mr. Truettner,
to cut out plans for a Chinese sunken
garden effect with whic it was orig-
inally planned to decorate the lawn
of the new museum building. But the
soil around both buildings will be
covered with blackdirt, rolled, and
then seeded. A large number of
shrubs will be 'set out, according to
the present plans.
Although the exact cost has not yet
been estimated, it will cost several
thousand dollars to complete the job,
it was said.
