Los Angeles, June 10.--Philip E. Campbell, aged 22, and Carl Kron, 20 years old, started from Sixth and Broadway this afternoon on a 5000 mile "hike" across the continent.
These boys are to walk from Los Angeles to Boston on a $1000 wager offered by a relative of Campbell. They are to walk the entire distance in 180 days. They will go by way of Sacramento, Salt Lake, Pueblo, Omaha, Chicago, Cleveland, Buffalo, North Adams and end their long journey at Campello, Mass.
Campbell visited the city hall yesterday to get credentials from Mayor Alexander. He says he has taken several long tramps, the last one being from Spokane to Los Angeles. His weight reduced from 150 to 128 pound on this trip.
Both Campbell and Kron are Boston lads. [jw]
