Consolidated, and Boeing companies were consulted. American Export Airlines Is now ready !o place orders for 20-plac e non-slop sleeper nlancs, announces Eaton, once Washington formulates "a definite foreign policy as regards trans- \l'untie aviation," Larger ships n'ould follow the traffic development.

Pilots, says Jliton, arc available. So the .American Atlantic air Iradc seeks representation adequate to balance the combined operations • ' r Giea.t^Brltaiu, prance, Germany rnd Italy,' And American maniifac- Hircrs arc coming up with ever larger ships to blaze th e trail. The Pace ts Terrific Olenn Martin, for example, frankly doubts there will be a 1 mil to the size of tomorrow's great Hying boats. He . started with the f'3,000-pound China Clipper and he 1-fls just laid ilie fundamental de- rign for a 250,000-pound, supercharged stratosphere ship to carry '10 passengers. "Ships like that," admits the Pan American's Atlantic manager, "will i lake the new ships now under (-.instruction but not yet delivered, obsolete before they are put into operation." Trans-oceanic plans are moving just that fsst today. STRAIGHT BOURBON WHISKEY This Whiskey Is I s Years r.
