Monty piloting the new plane,
Monty's plan is to have ten re
fuelling stations along the route,
where pilots are to go aloft to re
fuel his plane. Monty flies with
Natalie to New York, where he
will begin the flight eastward.
They are followed by Jimmy and
"There's a lot more than that
on this flight, Nat," Mont said
cryptically. He gripped her hand
and turned to Marion and to Sun
ny who had come up.
Natalie stood watching when he
climbed into the ship and wonder
ing at his words as he revved the
motor to high speed in swift tests
of the throttle.
The motor roared again and
this time the ship moved forward.
It was an old thrill now to Nata
lie but nevertheless it stirred her.
No less than before, this was still
the man she loved, risking his life
on the maddest flight that ever
the world saw.
Cheers broke from the crowd.
The ship picked up its tail and
then ran screamingly across the
field. It lifted and slanted for the
distant mountain tops as the sun
light tipped their peaks with gold.
Then Jimmy Hale stood at Na
talie's side. He slipped a note in
to her hand. "Prom Mont," he
said quickly and was gone.
Natalie's fingers were numb as
she tried to open the sealed en
velope. What could Mont be writ
ing to her? What was there that
he hadn't been able to say to her
face to face as they stood there
beside the plane before the start?
She remembered that strange
cryptic utterance of his.
"There's a lot more than that
THE ELKIN, TRIBUNE. ELKIN, NORTH CAROLINA
on this flight, Nat."
What could he have meant?
At last she had the envelope in
shreds, had brought out the fold
ed note paper within. She read:
I couldn't say anything to you
before. Maybe I ought not to be
writing this. But I can't go on
this flight without knowing that
I love you. I've known it all
along but I had to change my
whole life to admit it. I mean I
love you with the kind of love that
wants only marriage, the kind you
have been telling me about. I
tried—even after I knew that—
to keep from asking you to mar
ry me. I haven't been rotten, but
I've done things that make me
ashamed and it seemed to me
that I ought not to bring that
sort of record to you.
But I couldn't hold off any
longer. When I came back the
last time I was determined I'd ask
you to marry me and I hoped in
spite of everything that you'd say
Then Sunny pulled her fast one.
At first I was flabbergasted, didn't
know what to say or do. And then
it occurred to me that maybe it
was for the best, that it would
keep me from making love to you,
from trying to get you to marry
me. And it did that. I hadn't the
effrontery to say anything to you
like that after the announcement
was out. That much, at least, it
did for us.
But I found I couldn't go on
with the marriage. I didn't tell
Sunny that. I thought maybe, af
ter I had got things all figured
out, that I could go on. But it did
n't work. At first Sunny didn't
suspect. But she kept urging that
we be married right away. I
couldn't do it and so I just stall
That wasn't very decent of me
but it was the best I could do. I
kept thinking of you more and
more and I knew that wasn't
right. But it couldn't be helped.
At last Sunny lost patience with
me. She told me something that
I can never tell anyone. Almost
I believed it, but not quite, a'nd
she admitted afterward that
I saw then that she had tried
to trick me again and we had a
showdown. She finally agreed to
one thing. It was the best that I
could figure. She has agreed that
if I complete the flight this time,
the engagement is off. And she
won't say anything to her father
that will get me in bad with the
company. She's been holding that
I'm ashamed to have put you in
a position like this but it's one of
the things I've let myself in for.
It's one of the reasons why you
may not want to marry me at all,
even though you've told me you
Whatever you decide, my dear
est, will be right. With this flight
I'm trying to earn the right to
come back to you and ask you to
marry me. If I don't get through
—if I crack up, that is—l want
you to know that there has never
been anything in my life more
wonderful than the love I have for
you. If I come back but haven't
made the flight as it was planned
then I'll keep my word and I
won't be seeing you again, except
just casually as it has been lately.
But if I come through on sche
dule, then I'm going to hope and
believe that it means I've a right
to talk to you and that you won't
hold against me the things I've
done when marriage seemed to be
out of the question for me.
Don't spare my feelings if you
decide you can't see things my
way. There's nothing I want but
your happiness. I forfeited the
right to ask anything for myself
and I can take what's coming to
me. But if you love me and can
think at all of marrying me, I'll
know, I think, and nothing on
earth or sky or sea can stop me
on this flight. Here's all my love,
however It goes.
Natalie could have screamed
with happiness. She hugged the
letter to her heart and rushed for
the office. There she wrote like
one mad and then she hurried
home to be alone with her happi
ness for a little while.
She could think of nothing ex
cept that Mont was out there fly
ing for her. It occurred to her
presently that he would be report
ed occasionally on his flight to
New York. She went back to the
office and sat over the news wires
there till tbe next morning. Then
she rushed for the field office and
the short-wave radio receiver.
It was only a little after dawn
in New York when Mont refueled
there. He had broken all records
across the continent.
When she knew that Mont was
out over the Atlantic she tried to
TO home again but before she had
been able to make a start she
turned back. She would stand by
the radio set until he was safe
across. That much, at least, she
After a while Sunny Marlon
?ame to felt beside her but the
Tirl said nothing and Natalie
found no speech in her heart or
TO her lips that would not reveal
'iow much she knew.
It seemed at times as though
"winy was in terror part of that
and the following night bu:
she could not be sure. Together
they waited beside the little rad-'o
operator who dozed In his chair
oetween calls, depending on the
buzzing of the receivers to wake
him when news came.
Occasionally Natalie sent out
for something to eat but Sunny
would take nothing but a little
Sometimes Natalie thought that
the younger girl was breaking un
der the strain but she would not
leave. Her father came in from
time to time and appeared anx
ious about her. But she sat silent
beside the radio desk and seemed
to hear nothing but the occasion
al hum in the black receivers at
the operator's pars.
It was not till Jimmy Hale came
in that she looked up and smiled.
And presently Jimmy got her to
walk about with him and finally
to leave the field.
And within half an hour after
they had left, the station office
was roaring with the news that
Mont Wallace had broken another
record, the cross-Atlantic flight
record, and had refueled at the
first control station in France.
After that, wild horses could
not have torn Natalie away from
her post beside the radio operator.
She would not sleep. She
scarcely ate. She hardly moved
i from the office chair where she
sat with a typewriter at her hand.
Jim and Sunny came back,
joining her in the vigil as that leg
of the trip began. Reports were
that Mont was pale and looked
very weary as he crossed the con
trol station, Then the operator's
yell told them all that Mont was
safe across the Siberian wastes.
He was heading for Bering Strait
and at last for Nome.
Sunny Marion cracked then Na
talie saw her face when that word
of further and further success
came. She knew what the girl
must be going throug;h and moved
swiftly to do what she could to
But Sunny stood up, shrieking.
"Jimmy! Jimmy! Take me out
Jimmy Hale stepped quickly to
the girl's side and led her out of
the office. At the door he looked
back once. Then he grinned and
went out as though he, too, knew
the dreadful significance of that
Natalie sat back in her chair. It
was too bad about Sunny but
there was nothing that Natalie
The other girl's face had been
terrifying when she stood up and
screamed, but Natalie's mind was
already back with Mont Wallace
knowing that now he headed
once more across dark waters on
his flight to Nome.
Others were coming into the
station now. The word had gone
out, of course. Jabe Marion came
and sat beside the operator.
Natalie wrote her story—or be
gan it, but she had to change the
lead before it was finished for
the operator suddenly sat bolt up
right and talked rapidly as he
translated his message.
"Wallace down at sea," he
said. "Steamer in Bering Strait
reports seeing wreckage of plane
in fog. Hunting for it now. Prob
Natalie's fingers beat at the
typewriter keys. She felt it was the
only thing that saved her from
collapse, that necessity of getting
out the story of the tragedy.
But when more news came,
when it told of the steamers mobi
lizing for the hunt out there in
the fog, when it told of bits of
wreckage that had been picked up,
she almost believed.
Then there was a sudden stir
at the radio desk.
Natalie leaped from her place
and stood beside the operator as
he read the message aloud.
"Wrecked airplane identified,"
he said. "It's not Wallace, not the
Sunny Marion. Russian ship try
ing flight to Nome. Pilot safe."
There were cheers then but
they died quickly. Where was Mont
Wallace? Where was the gallant
plane now many hours overdue
Uncertainty made the suspense
more terrifying now than before.
Natalie telephoned the office
quickly and sent corrections for
her story. Wallace might be down
but this was another plane wreck.
And even while she spoke there
was a shriek from the little group
on the other side of the room.
"He's safe. He's safe. Vancouver
reports- him. He dodged the fog.
Cut straight for Vancouver in
stead of Nome. He's safe! He's in.
He's in. Nothing can stop him
Natalie sobbed for joy and
screamed into the telephone to
