NBW YORK, May $.—The activity W 'Qenefal Motors in avlatlo'n, In ton. nefction with this week's rcorganlzfi- liofi of the tfokker Aircraft corpora• tlon l&to the General AvlatlOft corporation, a holding company t6 acquire the Otitnlet Cofftpany of AfneHcft, has dls- closed a new'stirring in the aviation world and a renewed drive toward the dividend goal, which the air pioneers see hot far ahead. V While aviation In America went into a' bit of a tail-spin last November, with ' a tiros''Both,'In security prices and , .passengers' fearrled, it has righted itself with' surprising vitality arid Wall Street's fcOld scriiuhy of, the financial .•position of : the industry gives no cause fot di<e6urag6rtient. But the fact re- rnalnsVthjal the iSew half-billion dollar industry Is still a .nursling and concentration, of public interest is shift- Ing frbm the laboratories and testing fields, to tije accounting department. With '-. such moves as that of General .motors arid of Investment bankers who are unhesitatingly underwriting the Industry, it becomes clfear that perhaps • industrialists and financiers have a bird's-eye view not disclosed to the .'groundlings, and-that Ine caypon clip- plrig.will start before long. ' Sorhe Writers have made Invidious comparisons between aviation fh America/arid In Europe, giving the Impression that in'Great Britain and on the contirien-t, aviation has bocome a paying business. Such great systems as the Luft Hansa of Germany and the Imperial Airways are cited as examples of success. The answer to this Is that the European systems, without exception, have barnacled onto the blimp of .government subsidy. While this has stacked the cards un• favorably against America, on any . showing with this factor removed ' United States aviation"- Is a healthy <and vigorous fledgling, wlfl consulting • the cold calculators, rather than the shouters, -there Is plenty of nourishment for 1 the investor who realizes the necessity of absorbing pioneering costs and nursing a land-locked populace up into the air. — The men In the counting houses, trained to routing their dollars over round trips, have even Instituted psychological studies determining JLhe respective attitudes of men and worrten toward flying, with the surprising disclosure that women arc the more "air- minded." They have checked off and apportioned the thirty-three working, and possibly flying, years, alloted to a generation, and sifted out the oncoming youngsters, less resistant to the beckoning of the clouds than their elders; personnel, technology, finance and, above all, economic lifting power have been assayed, and after all this, the. cafe. Conservative llindlng is that the industry, both in manufacturing and operating Is on the up-turn. But, like the heavy plunger on the string-halt horse, some of the^investors are murmuring "What detained you?" America, which started this flying business, now gets a pay load of only 10 to 40 per cent of capacity, according to Postmaster; General Brown, while the Luft-Hansa gets as high as 74 per cent. Operating comparisons between European and American systems show that while In many cases the former have been able to got more persons into the air, at the Bame time American technical efficiency in manufacturing and operating has offset this, , and Uncle Sam has pretty well held' "his own, in • spite of the higher prices, recently lowered, and in splto of government subsidies in Europe. These comparisons narrow the problem of American success to that of volume. Last year's financial state" 1 menU of all leading companies show, on the basis of unit costs of carrying passengers, m'ail and express, that thi aviation industry is a going concern, provided the lino forms at the ticket window. Leaders of the industry, with few exceptions, are convinced that the absence of a government subsidy has been an aid rather than a detriment to operations. It has, they say, conditioned the industry in its early stages to a complete reliance on its own wings and has brought a concentration on pay load and volume, which would not have been brought about had the pioneering systems been fed on a bottle.
