Debt Position of the Industry

PRIOR TO THE semi-annual reports covering the first half of 1930 it might be well to do a little reviewing, especially covering that section of the aeronautical industry’s financial condition which a poor business year might be expected to most seriously effect.

ESTABLISHMENT of a series of quarantine stations on world airlines is now under consideration by the health committee of the League of Nations, following suggestions made at a recent meeting in Paris. APPROPRIATIONS totalling 400,000,000 francs (about $16,000,000) for a new Parisian airport, improvement of various existing French fields, and for experimental stations and aeronautic laboratories, are now under consideration by the French Chamber of Deputies.

Watching the News Go By

As faster methods and means of transportation are developed the bandits and bank robbers seem to lose no time in adopting the faster way of leaving the scene of their crime or escaping from the law. The highly colored and sensational air stories magazines which have sprung up in such great quantities seem to be full of the same old yarns of train, mail and bank robberies with the outlaws escaping by airplane.

Nashville Bond Issue Fails

NASHVILLE—The Nashville Airport bond issue failed to pass on June 26. Other plans for the establishment of an airport have been formulating and in the meantime the City of Nashville has been offered $80,000 for the McConnell Field. The proceeds of this sale would lie applied to the acquisition of a suitable airport.

NEW YORK—Several daring aeronauts have been making demonstrations, or trying to, in this vicinity recently, but so far as flying machines go, most of them seem destined to share the fate of Darius Green. The latest machine, built by a lawyer named Israel Ludlow, came to grief July 26 after he had got it a little way into the air by pulling it behind a motor car along the docks at West 74th Street.
