' giscond— Lighting of 3,000 miles of Hnyt for night flying. Ttilrd— Construction of thirty-three iiaitlonm radio beacons and twenty lrWay radio message stations. fourth— Maintenance In good order the existing wide-spread system of l*8 to flying. What officials regard as one of the Wort IffipOtUAt itngle phase* of the ft*W Mtwifuittes program will be the Opening of a lighted transcontinental airway Across the southern half of the tinned States. When this route is completed, commercial planes will fly ftem New York to Sfln Diego In two nights and one day. Thus, with the use of "Pullman planes," generally forecast, the eastern business man may journey to the west coast with the loss of only one business day. The new transcontinental route will make use of several existing sections, but unllghted portions of the present routes between Midland, Tex., and San Diego, will be equipped with beacons. The cross-continent route will touch tlif following large cities: New York, Atlanta. Port Worth, El Paso, San Diego and T..OS Angeles. Also, a lighted airway will be Installed between Dallas, Little Hock, Memphis, Nashville and Louisville, forming an alternate route to this southern transcontinental system. Further, an additional airway from the middle west to the east will be provided by the St. Louls-IndlanapollB, Columbus. Pittsburgh, Harrlsburg, Philadelphia, New York route, which win be equipped with navigation faciii< ties. It is likely, the aeronautics bureau points out, that transcontinental fliers mav vary their route from day to day, selecting the one over which the most Ideal weather conditions prevail. A far-flung weather information servlc* will operate to keep dispatch stations and pilots advised of atmospheric conditions all over the country. Still another lighted airway of considerable importance planned by thd bureau for completion within tho next thirteen months is a cut-off route between Richmond, Va., and Jacksonville, Fla., a distance of 560 miles. Installation ot this airway will provide an alternate night route for planes flving- between Boston, New York and "Florida, connecting at Miami with Pan-American planes. Pilots will have a choice between one route following the Atlantic, coast-line and another over the foothills of the Piedmont section via Atlanta, Completion of tlie aeronautics bureau's ambitious program will give the United States 17,500 miles of lighted airways, which la about 75 per cent tHfi ALfOONA the n*t»oftt m*talted by » At th* tnd thete *IU be stations broftdcaitiftg motion liflurfy.

Along with the development of stable aids to flying, It is forecast, will go further refinement of airplane instruments to insure safety of flight. Two developments of the past year— the automatic pilot and artificial horizon—likely will come into general uae soon, aviation leaders believe.* fullv equipped with the most modern Instruments and guided over lighted airways by accurate weather advices should b« able to offer transportation under conditions of unprecedented safety. NEW HOSPITAL IS FAVORED BY ADAMS (Special to Alloona WASHINGTON, O.
