Benjamin O. Howard
MAY I say, right at the beginning, that all my activities are shared with my good friend and associate, Gordon Israel, who, by the way, comes nearer being a genius than anyone I know. Neither of us have had any engineering training. I was forced to stop school shortly after entering high school.

Otto C. Koppen
ONE of the technical factors that limits the use of the airplane as an everyday vehicle is the skill required to make an ordinary landing. If the technique required were simplified, training and practice expense, not to mention sales-resistance in general, would be materially reduced.

Alfred B. Bennett
THE fifteen-dollar-a-week elevator operator or clerk has just as sincere an interest in flying as the $50,000-a-year playboy—and there are many thousands of times more clerks than playboys. Beyond all doubt the mass market offers real opportunities to the airplane manufacturer and distributor, if he can only see them. This is no new idea.

Dr. Karl O. Lange
Daniel Sayre
ANY discussion of the meteorology of soaring must start with a sorting out of the different types of atmospheric phenomena which can be used to sustain motorless flight. There are at least five distinct categories : winds rising over ridges ; convection currents associated with cumulus clouds ; dry thermal convections ; the fronts between dissimilar air masses ; and gusts.

BELT DRIVES between engine and propeller (not only to effect speed reduction from crankshaft to propeller shaft but also to break up the fixed relationship between engine and propeller necessitated by conventional practice) have been subject to investigation for some time recently by students and faculty of the Casey Jones School of Aeronautics at Newark, N. J. Tests were run not only to determine the effectiveness of belt drives but also to test the behavior of a stock automobile engine under aircraft operating conditions over an extended period of time.

Light of New Haven, Conn., was powered with a Wright Whirlwind of 420 hp. Actually, the engine in the machine as delivered to Dr. Light was a Pratt & Whitney Wasp.

QUESTION 9: How have you solved the ground transportation problem in your operation? Have you made arrangements for special rates with bus or taxi companies, or do you provide service with cars of your own? Is the transportation between airport and city included in charges for charter service or is it collected separately? Do you charge students without cars for transportation to and from the field, or is the expense absorbed in some other way?

JUDGED from a purely aeronautical standpoint this year’s National Air Races would certainly be classed as mediocre, but, as official recorder of the unusual in this airplane business, we are glad to announce that a new “farthest north” was established in aeronanutical writing at Cleveland. Mr. E.P.W. picked up the following from a news ticker in New York, and, after all of the data has been officially homologated by the F.A.I., this bit of writing will undoubtedly be awarded the Side Slips Trophy for Lurid Aviation Reporting
