Some years ago in aeronautical research circles there was quite an epidemic of discussion on the subject of compound wings and the possibilities of increasing the lift of airfoils by what may be termed artificial means. Numerous devices, including the Handley Page and Lackmann slotted wings, were developed, and yet it seems surprising that so little has actually been done in practice towards applying this type of wing.

<p>AT A time when there is a good deal of discussion on the pros and cons of three-engine planes—whether or not three-engine machines offer added reliability in operation; the costs of operation of three-engine planes and their useful load carrying capacity—it is of considerable interest to record a very significant load carrying record recently set up by a three-engine plane.</p>

IT HAS long been customary for city planning boards in controlling civic developments to look into the future and take cognizance of new methods of living and carrying on business. Thus, in the growth of a coastal city, if it is hoped to draw commercial shipping, the city development will be controlled to this end.

WHILE THERE has always appeared to be great secrecy regarding the aerial development of Russia, this has been caused more by the infrequency of travelers visiting the Soviet Republic and its distance from the aviation centers of Europe, rather than any prohibitive restrictions by the Soviet Russian Government.

“This cost was intended primarily to impress on the public that the direct cost of carrying passengers in a modern plane is very low and it seems that the best way to impress this on the general public is to compare it with the cost of railroad transportation.

THE THEORY of the slotted airfoil, of which so much was expected when it was first expounded some years ago, appears to have remained dormant, in spite of its promising aspects. It will be recalled that not long after the War there was what might be designated as an epidemic of discussion of the revolutionary possibilities of incorporating the slotted wing principle in both military and commercial aircraft, and yet little has been done in this direction.

Noting that the Fokker monoplane, in which Messrs. Byrd and Bennett went to the Pole, will be placed in a museum which Mr. Ford is establishing at Dearborn, Mich., and also noting that the Amundsen-Ellsworth-Nobile debate is still flourishing in the daily press, we are wondering what placard will be placed on the Norge when that ship is placed in a museum.
