-The plaudits of civilization were

Not only Byrd, but every one of
his 41 men who for more than a:
year braved the hardships and haz-

warmly greeted by this city of 85,-

forth expeditions into that un-

stress other achievements, popular

three companions over the South
This flight was begun Novembr

17 hours and 39 minutes, with Bernt

While giving full credit to the
courage of the three men who ac-
companied him on this flight over'
mountaintops, Byrd directed atten-
