EARHART MAKES AN ATTEMPT AND IS GONE FOREVER!
By: Maggie R.
Alabama, Age 11


7/4/1937

Amelia Earhart made and attempt

yesterday and disappeared forever. She

was trying to fly across the entire world

and disappeared. Her disappearence was

made over Howland Island, in the ocean.

She was a well respected, high acheiving

lady. Lots of women and children will

look up to her for many, many years to

come.One of her quotes was:

After midnight the moon set and I was

alone with the stars. I have often said

that the lure of flying is the lure of

beauty, and I need no other flight to

convince me that the reason flyers fly,

whether they know it or not, is the

esthetic appeal of flying
