Side Slips

WE READ in the news that some one is proposing to one of the towns on Long Island that it develop some of its public land as an airport with a golf course adjoining. Having witnessed the interesting fight between Roosevelt Field and the golf course adjoining it, we’d suggest that the designer of this new proposed course make his outlay so rough and adorned with trees that it won’t be the best spot in the neighborhood for pilots to indulge in forced landings.
