Aviation is the favorite child of modern time. It is promoted by a technical idealism, which receives its inspiration from difficulties and dangers and has little regard for sacrifices and losses. Many and grievous are its disappointments. When, however, a great and brilliant exploit is accomplished, then enthusiasm blazes forth and the whole world, which has become so small (oh, so small!), acclaims the hero. Lindbergh, the American, comes of hardy Swedish ancestry. In 1897 his kinsman Andree made a foolhardy and ill-fated attempt to fly over the North Pole in a free balloon, an exploit which was accomplished much later, in 1926, by the Norwegian Amundsen with a dirigible airship. .Andree was never heard from again, but others have continually pressed to the front, eager for fame and honor. The airplane seemed compelled to halt at the shores of the ocean. It appeared impossible to fly across the vast wastes of water, but danger stimulated desire. The first attempt brought death to the venturesome aviators, but another, unafraid, immediately stepped into the gap. Lindbergh brought to the dangerous task qualifications which gave him an advantage over the others: yotithful nerves of steel, his skill and coolness which did not desert him in critical moments, and that "sixth sense of the air" (the sense of equilibrium and an instinctive sense of direction), which is possessed by only a few. He ventured upon the long and dangerous flight in a small Ryan monoplane
