Published: Albert Lea Evening
Tribune (Albert Lea, Minnesota), Feb. 24, 1964, p. 4. "An interesting
little side light to this is the discovery of how many of our business leaders
are not only superstitious but actually have the extra time, and the extra
four 5 cent stamps to sit down and monkey with nonsense." Regarding "around
the world four times by United States Officers" see the alleged project
of Colonel Cole in 1923.
