THE AtTOONA MIRROR—TttURSt)AY, NOVEMBER 9, \ TERMINALS NEED ATJIRPORTS Buildings With All Conveniences Being Demanded by Women Traveling the U. S. Air Lines. CHICAGO. 111. Nov. T.-WOIIUMI are wlrldlnt? such 11 powerful inllu'Vice in aviation tluit every Iftrjct* nirport in the United Slates must install within the next IS months terminal fncllltlps and conveniences comparable to those offered by ilie great railway HystemH, if air travel is to prosper. This is the prediction of .John Casey, general manager of the Chicago municipal airport, which is just about the busiest in the world, with twenty-five oviatlon companies and all air mail and passenger plnne. service for Chicago operating from it. Cnscy bases his statement nn opinions expressed by the majority of tho lii.OOO women air passengers who had landed or taken off from the Chicago Municipal airport since October, .1927, and who conslitiileil about 2. r > per cent of all air travelers recorded by the airport since then. "If further development of aviation along broad lines is to be maintained, it is vital that thoroughly modern air port terminals be provided," Casey says. "Though women air travelers are in the minority, their Influence on aviation—especially as regards terminal facilities—is so powerful that every big airport in this country must have modern terminal facilities similar to those of the railway systems within the next year and a half, tf air travel is to prosper, airport authorities must follow the lead of the automobile industry in catering to the woman's point of view. "Air passengers, especially women, aro tired of landing at airports which disappoint them from the standpoint of the modern terminal affording full restaurant, ticket, transportation, communication and comfort facilities. The big airports which have modern terminals are being repaid by heavy increases in air travel to and from their ilelds. Many women air passengers arid ilyers have told me that they would rather go miles out of their way to . land at an airport with modern con- OUR BOARDING HOUSE r VOLJ GUVS' AR6UtU<3 TOR A • KALF HOUR, ABOU-T By AM EH N 6F r younie MEH!

Their disappointment Is quickly apparent, when they come down at an airport not having an up- to-cliite restaurant, rest rooms, speedy tranHportatlon to metropolitan areas nearby and adequate telegraph and telephone communication. "Airport terminal development has been overlooked in the great rush to devnlop airplanes. The tima has now arrived, howover, when a rush must be made by major airports to meet the demands of air travelers for up-to-the- minute terminals. There is no question that women are playing an increasingly important role in aviation and if their demands for more modern and complete airport terminals are not met then o.ltf passenger travel is bound to lag." Casey says it Is planned to. spend from $100,000 to $150,000 on improving the Chicago municipal airport to meet heavier traffic and provide adequate terminal conveniences, Including' passenger waiting rooms, ticket offices, rest rooms, department of commerce inspection branch office, department of agriculture weather bureau, probably a radio station, restaurant, showers, pilots' rest and sleeping rooms, city executive and maintenance offices, supply rooms and the 'ike.

PEIPINO, Nov. i. — Undaunted by their failures during, the past two years In attempting to alter age-old customs, Pelplng's Nationalist mtinl- Ipal government is making a new onslaught on bound feet, queues,.and the festival of the Chinese New Year. The most recent campaign of the Kuomintang reformers is heralded by a decree that all queues must be cut by January first next, and that all bound feet not yet hopelessly deformed shall be unbound before that date. At the same time, another decree has been issued stating that the Chinese New Year festival must not be celebrated in 1930. The reformers show a hcd'dy spirit, as' their previous efforts along this ine have not been very successful in Peiping. • They obtained the government's consent to a decree several nonths before this year's New Year 'estival, asserting that this ancient 'estival was outlawed, and should not >e observed. But the people placidly went aheae' vlth their plans, after: listening t< ;hd earnest arguments o_f'the / reform- >rs at mass-meetings and in smal gatherings. The 'Chinese New Year :estival in 1929 was celebrated with a universal abandon which struck foreigners as being superior to that In any recent year. The reformers have encountered a similar difficulty with those tenacious few who stick to their queues. Decrees against queues and bound feet have been issued, at -stated intervals since the foundation • of the Chinese republic in' 1912. Several such decrees have, been-Issued since the Na-, ilonalists occupied Peiping In June, 1928. But a few old-fashioned gen- tlemen stick to .-their !'pigtails.", When the Nationalists'' came ih'to Pelplng, they announced that no mote feftt must b'e .bound, and th'at women with bound feet,must remove the bindings within three months. The same decreed of queues. But three months passed) and the decrees were not obeyed. The officials ' then decided that a little mortj; time was necessary to instruct the people, and another three months' .extension was granted. Some progress may have been made, but it was not apparent to the casual observer. Almost two years have gone by, and the reformers report with deep concern, that some men still weaf queues, and that some women, still have bound feet—even in this center of culture the ancient capital. They add that the feet of some .young girls have actually been bound since the Nationalists arrived. . tfhe most recent decree states that January fli-st is • absolutely the final date. By that time, all queues must come off, and the wrappings must be removed from bound feet. What will happen if this decree Is Ignored, like those which have preceded It, is not stated. But the reformers believe they can education the people to give up these ancient customs In the time specified. They feel that Peiping—seit of ancient culture—must set. an example to more backward sections 'of the country.
