| AVednesday going toward the north-
I east. AVe were under the impression
they were going in the wrong direc
tion. A’enus, can you tell us the sig
? nificanee of their flight?" Yes, they
were going where nature directed
them. They were going to attend to
r their business. They know their ius
ine-s better than we do. Another
‘ thing, there was no room in Florida
■ because that state is crowded so full
of human beings that there was no
, room for them there. That was the
. reason they were going in the oppo
’ site direction.
If you have anything queer that no
