i 1 !UDAV ) .JUNB 5, Mails, Not Males, Any Her Concern Pretty Mary Jaue Dulancy Loads the Airmail at! Bristol, ; Va. By NBA Service IWISTOL, Vn.—The only woman airport manager in ihc United States, 24-year-old Mary Jane Dii- lancy, though a southerner, tisks no gnllnntry from any man. Prom her airport there, she re- Ports ivcatlicr several limes n day, puts Hie mail on and lakes it off the planes, loads the air cxrpiss, (.'hecks passengers and load weights on every plane oerore It leaves, makes reservations, sells tickets— and is Miss Aviation to the Virginia nnd Bast, Tennessee 'hlll-blllles. This sounds like a grand job— and It Is, no w that she's got usjci to the fed of tile 38-calibcr Colt which she lias to tote, as Uncle Sam's official mail clerk for t'he airport. A finishing school graduate, she'd iina no traffic with guns, of course, and toting one came hard at first. But the rest ol her job doesn't. For Mary June knows all about planes. Her Slarl In Aviation She's a pilot 'herself. Siie started flying In 1930, when n local business man and flying enthusiast nought the properly now occupied by the airport and opened a flying »hcol. This man Inveigled Mary Jane into becoming his first pupil, for '/ID had an Idea that the. future of civilian Hying depended on wo men showing the way. He thought if a pretty, young local girl went in for flying, nil southern' Virginia and East Tennessee would become Hirinlndccl. The poor man was wrong, partly. For Mary Jane was not, only his first, but remained his only flying W1 pi]. Hundreds cam? to watch, hut only to wntt'.i. Mary Jane, however, got her private pi- H's licensoc anyway. Was' Airline Hostess When her teacher gave up his venture, she got a job as hostess on an airline and held the job for dis- sevcn months, until the nn continued hostesses. She sorry, for they Had begun flying queen bees from Florida to New York and Mary Jane was afraid of bcc-s. Next she applied for and »ot a' job as weather reporter on the American Airlines. This was an arduous job. f or the first inornln° plane left Nasl|villc at dawn and this meant she had to be down at NIC weather station, ten miles from nowhere, at 4 a. m. to wire in cloud conditions, visibility, "obstruction -to 'vision," wind 1 velocity, and Mual- weather. • ' . " . . Sic learned to guage visibility by computing the distance between the weather station and two moim- ' °" Dni " s mlic --"id (he she found out how nh r , other fourteen, to judge u, e height of t , IC ccm by sending , :p a tiny black helium balloon, on the basis of the len°lh of time a balloon was visible before it vanished into the clouds ' Job Takes Slrcn-fh W'len this airline started a passenger schedule from Nashville wth a Bristol stopover, she ! a ] fccd herself into the airport job Her only difficulty was to persuade airline officials that she was strong enough to load ma ii „,,„ CS p rc! £ n spite of 'ner 120 pounds. For no-' Body else is permitted to touch the mail pouches. There can't be any qu-stion of southern gallantry when it comes to taking oir or putting on the mail. Sometimes it's pretty heavy --especially when lucre's air express weighing M pounds or so But local young men have learned lo be onlookers, only, even though Pretty Mary Jane staggers under the load. B '«cr Job Ahead Bristol is only a milk-rim stop now. but her job will loom in national significance in about eight mc-nt-iis, when the gigantic new Bristol airport being built by PW<1 ^Uimis is completed.
