Bows To British, In Commercial Airplanes; Factors Behind Cardinal Spellman's Trip To Rome; John Maragon Did Not Get "Usual Treatment" In His Perfume Smuggling Case.

But that day is about to pass. The British are now ahead of us in commercial airplane design, while the Swedes are about even and will surpass us soon. Alert Undersecretary of Commerce C. V. Whitney has been visiting England to investigate British commercial" air superiority and is reporting 1 that the British already have a jet-propelled transport plane far ahead of anything even started in the U.S.A. Reason for the slump in commercial airplane design is that the Republican 80th Congress objected to Army funds being used for development of commercial planes. Hithijrto. U. S. transport planes have been designed by Air Force funds used in cooperation with commercial companies. Now that money is cut off, and the big airplane manufacturers aren't designing new types. i Note—Both private industry and such GOP leaders as John Foster Dulles and Guy Gabrielson have been yelling about "statism". But when government money is cut off from the aviation industry, it falls behind the rest of the world, and airplane manufacturers, most of them Republicans, want back the "statism" money cut off by the 80th Congress. Cardinal Spellman's Trip Prior to Cardinal Spellman's flight to the Vatican, it was authoritatively reported amoifg the Catholic Hierarchy that Spellman had lost his onetime position as favorite of His Holiness. Those who have visited at the Vatican during and since Cardinal Spellman's dispute with Mrs. Roosevelt, report that the Pope was not pleased ' over Spellman's outburst and that this was the chief reason why the cardinal later called on Mrs. Roosevelt at Hyde Park. At one time Spellman was considered in line to be papal secretary and perhaps the first American pope in history. But now it's reported inside the Hierarchy that among the American cardinals, wise old Cardinal Stritch of Chicago is more in favor at the Vatican. Th»se -factors may be one- reason for Cardinal Spellman's flight to Rome.

S. labeled as champagne for the White House and later pot the case squelched bv the Justice Department, amiable Clyde Hoey. the swallowtailed senator from North Carolina, described it all as "just the usual settlement." Since then, this column has inquired of the 'Customs Bureau regarding other smuggling cases to see exactly what the "usual settlement" is. The Customs Bureau has been extremely loath to talk. One week of queries has disclosed no information whatsoever. However, The New York Times contains the record of the case of one Jack Benny -where the value of the goods involved was almost identical to that of Maragon's. Maragon's perfume was valued at $2.300. The jewelry which Benny tried to bring- into the U. S. was valued at $2,131. Maragon, thanks to his good friend. General Vaughan, was permitted to settle his case for a fine of only $1,500. Jack Benny, however, had no General Vaughan inside the White House. So he paid a $10,000 fine, received a suspended jail sentence of a year and a day, and was placed on probation for one year. Benny had not smuggled, the jewelry himself. Nor had he disguised it as a gift to the White House. He had given it to Albert N. Chaperau at the latter's suggestion that he would smuggle it for him. Along with Benny, George Burns of the radio team of Burns & Allen, was fined $8,000 and got a suspended jail sentence and probation. Mrs. Edgar J. Lauer, the wife of a New York Supreme Court justice, also was fined $2,500 plus three months in jail, while public opinion forced her husband to resign from the bench. In contrast, Maragon paid only $1,500—which. Senator Hoey calls a ''usual" settlement—while the gentleman who saved him from further punishment. General Vaughan, has not resigned but is still sitting pretty at the White House. Detectives Enter B-36 Battle If the battle over the B-36 gets any hotter in actual aerial combat than it is on the ground in these piping times of peace', then we will see the hottest war in history. For one airplane manufacturer —Glenn Martin—has even resorted to putting private detectives on the trail of blond, handsome Stuart Symington, the secretary for air. Symington, devoted to his wife and leading an exemplary life, nevertheless has had the gumshoe men aTiecking on him, especially in St. .Louis where he used to live. 'Unfortunately for the society cMfemn and the Navy they haven't colSe up with anything. Note—Glenn Martin, who has specialized on Navy planes in the past, has been irked because of lack of orders from the Air Forces.

Sharp-Eyed Printers Two New Members Make Odd U. S. Bills Collectors Items , By TED HAMMER (Librarian, The American Numismatic Aaociatlon) Response from readers of the recent article on two-denomination notes indicates a wide interest in paper money oddities. While the two-denominatoln note is the king of oddities in paper money, there are other more common ones. The two-denomination note Is one with one denomination on one side and a different denomination on the other—$3 on the fa'ce and $10 on the reverse, for example. One of the more common oddities Is the note with a crease. This results when the paper becomes creased during the printing, resulting in white spaces where there should be colored design. Most creased notes have this oh the reverse side, perhaps since it'is noticed more reaflil yon the face, and thus the bill does not get into circulation. Numerous off-center notes appear; In which there Is no even : margin all around the note. These are so common that collectors seldom pay-more than 26 or 50 cents plus face for such a note. Occasionally notes are found, that are not of standard' width or Ifength— sometimes larger and sometimes smaller than normal. Notes with portions missing such as signatures, seals or serial numbers are scarce enough so that they command premiums of SI to $5. The "upside down" note was common through the series of 1899. but seldom is found nowadays. This is called "inverted reverse" by collectors. Actually, such a note Is an inverted obserse, since the face of the note is printed last. In turning a note over.from left to right or right to left, starting with the face right side up, one will find the face and reverse always right side up. In an inverted note, this will not be true. Employes of the U. S. bureau of engraving and printing have such sharp eyes that oddities don't often get past them and reach circulation. Thus any that do are worth premiums because they are so scarce. MANUFACTURING ABBA Providence—Eight percent of all American manufacturing is concentrated in the northeastern section of the" country.
