EARHART'S SISTER SKEPTICAL ABOUT SEARCH TEAM'S FINDING

Amelia Earhart's sister is skeptical about a search team that claims to have found traces of Earhart's doomed flight on remote Nikumaroro Island in the Pacific.

"What they find out now would be too little and too long ago to prove," said Muriel Morrissey, 92, of Medford, Mass.Instead of concentrating on Earhart's mysterious disappearance, Morrissey prefers to think of her sister's accomplishments. "She was a devout feminist," Morrissey said.

"She believed women could do anything and felt they should be given the chance."
