Making civil aviation pay is a problem that perplexes the nations engaged in it. In Europe the transport companies could not operate without government subsidies. In the United States aid in the form of mail contracts is essential. The English shy at the word subsidy.

4THE 1930 National Air Tour is now under way. Let us hope that when it returns to Detroit it will have served its purpose 100 per cent . . . that of giving thousands of people the opportunity to make first hand inspections of the latest designs in American aircraft. The Tour was never needed more than it is right now.
