JUST AS the war surplus material is being gradually used up, so also the number of pilots and mechanics who were trained during the War is gradually becoming more limited and a new supply of men must be made available. Encouraging young men to enter aviation and an intelligent training for them is a matter of great interest not only to the civilian operators but also to the government.

History of the Aeronautical Engine
Basic Features Almost Unchanged Through Development Years.

C. FAYETTE TAYLOR
LIKE MOST of our mechanical conveniences, if I may take the liberty of classifying it as such, the aeronautical engine has an interesting history, unfamiliar alike to the layman and to the engineer. It is with the hope that such a history, in very brief form, will be of interest that this article is written.

SWANEE TAYLOR
'ERE THIS edition of America’s great aeronautical paper reaches the reading public, real commercial aviation will have been thoroughly launched, and lunched, within our native shores. I use the term real, advisedly. The nativity of the little commercial newcomer will be heralded by lusty clashing of cymbals and loud wailing of reeds, together with columns of newspaper space and miles of newsreel footage.

At the time of this writing, the Sikorsky trans-Atlantic plane is getting the finishing touches and promises to give us something to talk about when the test flights can be made. The police guard always at the door of the hangar makes it look as if the souvenir hunters have been around already for wings, rudders, landing gears and other odd bits to add to their collections.

The office boy is a pretty hard individual to squelch, at least so is the one in the employ of the National Air Transport, Inc., at Chicago. The youngster apparently had exhausted his supply of grandmothers in his endeavors to get away from the office in the afternoons to witness the White Sox or the Cubs play ball, or else baseball had palled on him.

Many aeronautical celebrities have visited and praised Brook Park Field within a few days. Maj. Gen. Umberto Nobile who was so aptly termed as a modern Columbus by the Cleveland Plain Dealer, along with his mascot a fox terrier, Titina, many gorgeously uniformed mechanics, and a host of Italian admirers was guest of honor last Sunday.
