BULLETIN
FRIEDRICHSHAFEN, July 31.
-The departure of the Graf
Zeppelin was set today for 3 a.
im. Thursday morning (9 p. m.
Wednesday, eastern time.)
(By Associated Press)
FRIEDRICHSHAFEN, Germany,
July 31.-The Graf Zeppelin, giant
German dirigible, was preened in
its hangar today for its start at
dawn Thursday for Lakehurst, N.
J., on its second westward trans-)
Atlantic venture.
Passengers gathered from all
over Europe, among them various
Americans. Some rushed from
great distances so as not to be left
behind when the mighty craft
pokes its nose westward with the,
daybreak on its great adventure.
Cargo, including several baboons
and baggage of the passengers, and
a large quantity of oil, was in the
holds, fuel tanks were filled, and
cells were inflated.
Knut Eckener, the tall, fair-hair-
ed son of Dr. Hugo Eckener, skip-
per of the dirigible, predicted a
prompt getaway at dawn Thursday.
No Delay Permissible
"Whoever isn't aboard by then
must hold the bag " he said, "for
we can't wait any longer. The
weather prognostications are ex-
cellent, and we don't want to de-
lay a day longer than is necessary,
as we want to start on our world
flight as soon as possible.".
The Graf Zeppelin expects to
arrive at Lakehurst probably cir-
cling over New York City, Sunday,
at the completion of a four-day
trip over a course of probably more
than 4,000 miles.
The ship will remain at Lake-
hurst three or four days, beginning
there about Aug. 7 its round-the-'
world trip. Cruising eastward, its
first stop will be Friedrichshafen
for three or four days, its next at
Tokio for four days, and the last
at Los Angeles for four days.
17 Days of Flying
"We expect to use 17 days for
the flight itself, exclusive of stops,"
said Capt. von Schiller, third in
command.
"The journey with the stops in-
cluded, should take a little less
than a month.
In crossing the Pacific the dirigi-
ble will not be able to fly above
the-Hawaiian islands, since it will
take a "great circle" course from
Tokio for Los Angeles which will
take it north of the archipelago.
A new safety contrivance has
been added to the Graf's construc-

tion. Anl airtight rubber tubing of
considerable size, attached to they
bottom of the passenger gondola,f
it is believed, will prevent the ves-.
sel's sinking should it be forced to
alight on the water. Dr. Eckener
today declared himself fully satis-
fied with the results of the tests.,
Lighting Is Subject
Of Higbie Talk Today
"Natural Lighting of Buildings"
will be the subject of the lecture to
be given at 5 o'clock this afternoon
in Natural Science Auditorium by
Prof. Henry H. Higbie of the de-
partment of electrical engineering
of the engineering college. Profess-
or Higbie has made an extensive
study of this field so that his lec-

Capable of carrying a load of 9,000 pounds 9,500 feet above the sea at a speed of 135 miles an hour,
gigantic German man-made gull, the Rohrbach flying boat Rostra, has been made ready for a com-

route from Lisbon, Portugal, with stops at Cape Verde Islands, Fernando Noronha, off Brazil, and

Later in the day the flyers turned
aside for a time from the round of
celebrating to pay their respect to
their friend and fellow airman,
George Lea Lambert, who was kill-
ed in an airplane accident near
here Monday. Lambert, son of Maj.
Albert Bold Lambert, observer of
the St. Louis Robin flight, was
buried this afternoon.
Tomorrow O'Brine, and Jackson
will ride in a parade through the
city to be publicly acclaimed. They
will follow the same route traveled
by Col. Chas. A. Lindberg two years
ago when he came home from his
New York to Paris flight.
The motor parade which will
wind through the downtown dis-
trict will end at the city hall,
where the flyers will be welcomed
back to earth and congratulated in
behalf of the city by acting Mayor
Chas. A. Neumann.
Arise Early
The flyers, guests in a downtown
hotel, arose early today refreshed
from the 17th day of living in
cramped quarters in the sky and
after going through fan mail and
being given shaves and haircuts
were driven to the city club.
They were presented with inscrib-
ed wrist watches by the Chamber
of Commerce and received many
other gifts presented through the
Commerce chamber.
Maj. Wm. B. Robertson, president
of the Robertson Curtiss Airplane
Mfg. Co., which sponsored the flight
announced that the company would
make and give to the flyers a spe-
cial challanger Robin airplane, the
type of ship with which they broke
the endurance record. He also an-
nounced he would back them im
another endurance flight if thei,
record was ever broken.
Major C. Wassal and T. C. Chas-
see the refueling crew for the rec-
ord flight were also guests and both
took bows. The wives of the fiyers
were presented with boquets.
The aviators will be guests of th,
St. Louis Cardinal baseball club '
