Cooperation and an unhappy experience

IN Owen Johnson’s delightful stories of Dink Stover and Doc Macnooder and their compatriots, written from the schoolboy’s point of view, members of the school faculty were invariably referred to as “the natural enemy.” In some quarters in the aircraft industry there is an unfortunate tendency to view the Department of Commerce as deserving that title.

The Cleveland Airport decision was much more important, because more definite, and very emphatically disheartening.

THE State Department, after having concealed the Pan-American Navigation Convention in its bosom for almost exactly three years, finally transmitted it to the Senate. The Senate, setting at naught all the gloomy prophecies that had been made about the awful fate to which it would subject the document on arrival, proceeded to ratify it without delay or debate.
