These Are Vital Problems

1. DOMESTIC AIR TRANSPORT has too many fingers ■ in its particular pie—the Post Office, the Department of Commerce, and the ICC. It still suffers under legislation that is basically punitive rather than constructive. Airlines, once their right to operate as a “convenience and a necessity” has been established, should be granted rates for services rendered that would permit a fair profit.

It's the Little Things That Count

IF YOU TAKE the ten-thousand-andone assorted parts that make up a modern air liner and multiply them by 45,—the size of American’s active flying fleet,—then fly that fleet some 50,000 miles a day over a network of airways stretching from Boston to Los Angeles, you will begin to get some conception of the problem that faces any airline that operates on a transcontinental basis.

Side Slips

THIS COUNTRY we have been afraid for some time back that serious hostilities were about to break out between the “High Level Route” and the “Low Level Route” trans-continental air lines over a series of advertisements. Now, just when that difficulty between them was getting straightened out, an underwear manufacturer starts advertising that the pilots of one route wear his underwear, which is so comfortable that “no squirming” is necessary for the pilots on the long flights.
