THURSDAY, APRIL 22, 1937 BLYTHEVILLE (ABKJ COtTRIER NEWS Aviation Speeds Development in Remote Paris of Canada the equipment wns unpacked nnd reassembled, and now there) stands a busting mining town with modern heavy machinery for extracting the ores—all transport-1 ed thvouKh the air. " | The Canadian development of, air freight has been remarkable because so many sections of the I country are remote from roads or | rail transport. Six-sevenths of the air-tame freight of the British Empire Ls carried in Canada. Winged "IJox Cars- Ill the early days of Canadian Mr-frplglU, room was made in the transport planes by removing the tents, and many a prospector flying to new "diggings" slept on the softest parts of piles of freight on the plane soared over the wilds if north Canada". Now freight traffic by air University Leader Increased to such has point By NEA Service WINNIPEG, Manitoba, Canada, April 22.—An entire mining town —machinery, equipment, food supplies, and people—has been shipped into an inaccessible spot of the Canadian wilds—by plane! This 20th century version of prospecting in the wilderness has Just been accomplished at Favorable Lake, Ontario, where gold is the principal metal mined. Rich ore deposits were found at the lake, 150 miles from Bcrcns River, Manitoba. But the lake lies In the center of a mane of rivers, small lakes, heavy forests and rocky land without transportation by rail or road. How could machinery nnd a mining settlement be set up quickly there? The airplane seemed the only answer. But could heavy mining machinery, Diesel and steam plants, a CO-foot smokestack, and other cumbersome equipment be transported by plane? Yes, replied Canadian flyevs. Pilots Never Missed Soon the clocks at Bcrens River became a conglomeration of heavy machines, tractors, 150-pound boilers, Diesel engines, huge ore buckets, rails, cranes, drums of oil and gasoline, pipe, steel cable, beams, and smokestack sections. Equipment that could be : city is rapidly b-comliv one of wedged through the plane doors J the greatest "mob" centers In the was so loaded. Larger machinery | United Slates. was broken down and carried' Within the past few months mo- piecemeal, to be reassembled at .lion picture studios have paid out the lake. The .smokestack, six, $30,000 in wages here for "mob" feel In diameter, was curried in j extras, white approximately $100,- scctlons. j 000 will be paid out during the When it proved impossible to' summer months for "mob" spe- load cargo of awkward length and cialists. Mobs ol 500 persons are that freight plnncs are specially designed and equipped, until they are veritable "flying- box cai-s." The boom In Canadian mining exploitation during the lust few years •tins opened this traffic to a point where n single company handled 3,000,000 pounds of freight and express in the northland in 193(3. Ninety per cent of it Ls connected with the mining Industry. And in all of the million and a quarter miles this aerial freight truffle was'cairicO, not a single life was lost. Substitution of these "flying freight cars" for the laborious nulls back over icy -mountain I passes is speeding up development of the more remote parts of Canada. The transportation by uir of an entire community, with ' all Its equipment, opens lip new I possibilities for the future. HORIZONTAL 1,C Presidentof Vale University.
