J1DAY, JANUARY 8, 1937 BL'ifTHEVILLB, (ARK,)' COURIER NEW8 kbson Sees luvesliiienl Opportunity of 1937 in AH Indushy. By KOG1C11 HABSON' BAUSON PARK, Mass., Jan. 8 -Early ench January I try to seed for my own satisfaction one particular industry which I uslieve :ias an excellent outlook. List year I nominated building. Up until a few days ago I was prepared to vote for It again. However, ii\ spite of recent unfavorable accident pub liclly, certain figures have been ro leased which have shUtctl my pref erencc to aviation. In a recent review while summarizing the 1337 outlook for trans porlallon securities, I sail!: "Rails may be n feature markelwisc, hut airline issues offer better lon»-pull possibilities." My runciamsiitnl position on railroads for the past four years lias been that the coining era of prosperity may be the Jast opportunity to (jet rid of nil 'tocts. They have a high leverage flctor and some limy show sbarj >Uvanci?b In the nest fen jeirs ventually, -however, a big portioi if. present railroad mileage mus lie scrapped. Labor, taxes, am equipment replacement will skin vhat cream is left after the nir ines steal the high-paying an preferable traffic. That is why 'avor aviation in the transports ion field. There are three separate-aspect t the aviation business—(i) Iran? »rt, (2) express, and (3) .mami tfaclurlng. All have enjoyed tre ncndous growth, particularly in th ast two or tliree years. They nr nontlily registering new peaks I volume of business. Figures rcleas eel recently snow that not eve :lie coining of stormy weather an (unfortunate accidents have tse able to, halt the moiHh-to-mont gains in passenger miles flowi This is the first winter that pas senger business has actually show increases at this season. At th same time, airplane manufacturer have • orders to keep ihelr plant running at capacity for months' i advance. The air express divisio lias also made startling progres recent months. As I look at it, commercial avi tion is going, through Hie', "awl ward age." It :E growing fast an on the surface it is not showing ti profits it should. The real story that depreciation charges are keep ing ayiallon companies "broke Eventually, a good portion of wlu IB now being charged to obsol? •ence can be used for dividem rile time to buy into an industr » not in the early stages wheii is being written up in magazine. Nor should one 1 \vait : (mlil it-is inak ing btft profits Ihe'tmiL to buj during tile intermediate i>:rio;l a tcr the balryhco is over, but befo the dividends are being declared That is where aviation seems be today and why I nominate it the 1037 "industry of the year SALEM, Mass.

Steps In Purification Filtration, ns disclosed earlier in one of these advertisements, was first employed in the purification of the public watei supply of London about 1829. .Today filtration affords.a far more scientific and accmatc puiihcation treatment than crude filters could have furnished. After the sedimentation process has been carried to the proper, point, the water flows to filters, still carrying' in suspension tiny particles of solid matter, which purposely have been allowed to rehiaiii after the previous settling treatment. These tiny particles, known as "floe," form in a thin porous mat on top of the sand in the filters. The water must not only percolate through this "flbc" but also through the graduated sand and gravel of the filters themselves. As the filters become clogged, they are taken from service and washed by a : reverse flow of water. Here is another itiiportant step, employed by the modern waterworks plant in the purification' of your daily water supply. BLYTHEVILLE WATER CO.
