A New Idea for the Air Mail

AIR transport's greatest need of the hour is that the air mail be strengthened. Rapid as is the growth of passenger travel, more than two-thirds of the revenue of the American transport lines still comes to them through the Post Office. The future prospect of air transportation depends upon further expansion and improvement of air mail service, combined with steady progress towards elimination of the deficit.

Side Slips

THIS year there really was one outstanding exhibit at the aircraft show,—one display which had people around it in rows six deep night and day,—the new Ford V-8 automobile engine. One airplane manufacturer had a very nice exhibit of one of his newest models, with an uncovered skeleton of the same airplane alongside of the completed one.
