THIS YEAR saw the motor-boat owners of New JL York State, tired of paying gasoline taxes for the support of highways, form into battle line and successfully overthrow the patently ridiculous assessment. Airplane operators of many states are paying the same unjust excise and funds which are obviously needed to round out our aviation program are being devoted to incongruous uses in connection with highway development and maintenance.

ANEW ENGLAND correspondent reports growing popularity for a new form of civic service. Painting the name of the town in magnificent yellow letters on the most conspicuous available roof has become a favorite pastime. Young and old, agile and infirm, men and women, they have all seized brushes and buckets of chrome-yellow liquid and started to climbing ladders.

AXIOMATICALLY, the essence of aviation is speed. To whittle away the speed of air transport is to annihilate its usefulness. To entangle international flying in a maze of time-wasting red tape is to remove the reason for its existence. In a general way, the truth of those trite observations is recognized.

C. E. WIETZ
WILL THIS lighting system meet the Depart ment of Commerce requirements for an "A" rating? That seems to be the question of primary concern to airport managers in discussing or in planning airport lighting facilities. The managers of operating companies and private aircraft owners, however, for whose use the facilities are provided, should have a somewhat different criterion for judging lighting provisions.

J. DON ALEXANDER
FEW PEOPLE realize the advantages of airplane speed from a safety as well as an economy standpoint. Providing no large sacrifice is made in landing speed, structural strength or maneuverability, the fastest plane is the safest plane. It spends little time over rough terrain on a long cross country flight, minimizing the possibilities of a difficult landing in event of motor trouble.

The editorial on flight testing entitled “More Work for the Department of Commerce” appearing in your Nov. 16 issue is very interesting. In view of the fact that the Department of Commerce may be handicapped by insufficient appropriations to the point of being unable to carry out such a program, would it not be possible to organize a flight test bureau with the financial aid of representative companies in the aviation industry and equipped with adequate personnel and instruments?

The “Bremen,” first east-west Atlantic plane, is museumized in New York. Now, Col. Arthur Goebel’s Dole-flight-winning Hawaii plane is to go into a private museum in Oklahoma.

MR. H. H. F. JR. stopped in to comment on the accident to the plane owned by Mr. Richard Hoyt, which was left parked in a pasture somewhere, and was found to have its rudder chewed off by a cow or horse or something when the party returned for it. H. H. F. Jr. thinks that the airplane of the future will not only have to be amphibious but carnivorous, so that it can bite back if attacked while its owner is away.
