"The route to Europe which the
'Untin Bowler is to take is the only
practical one," was the comment of
Prof. William H. Hobbs, head of the
University geology department and
director of the University of Michi-
gan Greenland expedition, in an in-
terview yesterday afternoon. "It
is a route which I have repeatedly
Profesor Hobbs, who for the last
five years has been in charge of
the University meteorological sta-
tion at Mount Evans, Greenland,
has been in close contact with
Parker Cramer and the projected
flight which he, Bob Gast, and Rob-
ert Wood, aviation editor of the
Chicago Daily Tribune, are to make
to Europe. Leaving Chicago, they
expect to fly to Berlin and back
by way of Canada, Baffin Bay,
Greenland, and Iceland. The pur-
pose of the flight is to discover
whether the route is practicable
for commercial and passenger
Follow Hobbs' Route
Professor Hobbs was one of the
first men to advise this route for
such uses, as he considers it far
more safe than the more direct one
across the Atlantic. To quote from
an article which was printed in
Leningrad last summer, subsequent
to an address which he delivered
to the International society for
Aircraft Discovery in the Arctic.
"For summer flying if certain
conditions can be met, Chicago bids
fair to become the center for trans-
atlantic aviation, and the most
promising route will be in the
neighborhod of a great circle to
northern Europe. After traversing
British America to Hudson strait,
this line crosses Baffin Bay and
southern Greenland and hits the
northern tip of Iceland, it contines
to Trondhjem, Oslo, and Lenin-
Air Currents Usable
In suggesting this route and in
advising the 'Untin Bowler to test
it for its practible significance, he
gave as his reasons the observa-
tions made at, Mount Evans dur-
ing the summer of 1927. The whole
of Greenland as seen from the air
is like a huge dome sloping down-
ward toward the ocean. Above this
is an outfiowing surface air layer
which extends upward about 1000
metres, where it is replaced by in-
:flowing winds from westerly quad-
rants. On the eastward flight,
therefore, the pilot has only to
rise about 3000 metreshto have the
wind in his favor, and aftertcross-
ing to the eastward slope to de-
scend into the lower outfiowing,
and, here, eastwardly directed air-
current. On the westward flight
the conditions are the same except
that they are reversed in direction
and are met by the same procedure.

Many Landing Points
"Undoubtedly this northern route
is especially to be recommended
for sea-planes or amphibians, since,
not only could the transit across!
Canada be interrupted for refuel-
ing but lakes, bays, and fjords are
available, not only throughout
Canada and over the western land
ribbon of Greenland, but Iceland
has numerous excellent landing
places for sea-planes on both north-
ern and southern coasts.
In the proposed route of the
Untin Bowler, the longest hop is
about 800 miles as compared with
the 3000 miles which is necessary
for the direct Atlantic flight. Of
the entire -course, the longest

Lott's Loss to Borota Severe

WIMBLEDON, England, July 1.-
Bill Tilden fought his way to the
semi-finals of the Wimbledon ten-

younger American, George Lott,
fell victim to a tricolor racquet.
In an even break for the French
and American forces, Jean Borotra,
the ageing but still agile "bounding
