He is one of Ihe big fac- \ Icrs in air transportation.. A fe'V weeks.ago he gained con- |trol of the'New York Shipbuilding Corporation. 1 Whose' yards at ICamden, N.

In this |200-!icre plain, connecting with the I Pennsylvania and Philadelphia & iReadini; railroads, were built the [Manhattan and Washington, Inrg- lest American-biillt liners; and the •Indianapolis, navy's finest new Icruiser.
