AIRCRAFT CONTRACTS — With aircraft production running nearly 9,000 units a month, the question has arisen as to when a definite downward trend in aircraft contracts may be expected. The best answer from competent authorities seems to be that there will be no falling off until the success of the invasion is determined beyond a shadow of a doubt and even then any changes probably will be in types rather than in overall output.

Carlton Ward, Jr., president of Fairchild Corp., told the Woodrum Post-War Military Policy Committee last week.</p>

<p>It has been two weeks since the Murray contract termination bill received favorable Senate action, and the “prompt action” predicted for the House has failed to materialize.

<p>While the brilliant airborne “cutoff” operations in Central Burma were being planned in Washington last summer, another surprise party for the Japs was actually being worked out in New Guinea.

A taxation problem menacing the air transport industry with grave financial difficulties unless Congress provides a solution was posed last week by the U. S.
