BUH/DJLNTG,.** r AILING YOUR LETTER on the roof may soon'be an ae- c-.omnli.Hiod fact in the big business woi-lcl t h a t has its bciiiff amid the canyon.* of downtown Manhattan, Â· The Post Office Depm-tment is keenly interested in a new pick-up device that will permit a flying plane to sweep up sacks of man from the roofs of skyscrapers and KO further expedite the handling of air mail. The daring attempt to pick up the m a i l will be made by Captain Philip Watson, of Roosevelt Field, who v/ilt seek to disprove (he theory that the varying nir currents among tall buildings would cause a piano to crash i n t o the sides of the skyscrapers that "abound in lowt-r New York City. The load of tent mail will include several mail hacks weighing: 40 pounds, which will be set into a catapult devicfl, which la to bo sot up on the f l a t topped tower of No. 120 Wall .St. The top of thin building rises four hundred and forty feet nhovs that narr,ow thoroughfare, and is surroundod by other gigantic structures. The air m a i l catapult iÂ« to bo adjusted by A. W. Card, one of the designers of the device. E, Bushrneyer, tho other inventor, will accompany Captain Watson in his daring attempt. Several practice pickups p/ili first be carried out before the amall plane finally swoops down cut of the clouds and 'carries tha mail to Hadley Field, where it will be loaded on the regular innil planes. Ths Post Offics Department has assign ad photographers to record the full details of the experiment, in which the Department of Commerce is alao interested. If the test is succeRsful, it is believed that soon heavy fnafc mail planes will throw out hooka to pick up loads of financial mail intended for branch houses of various brokerage houses, and so add still more speed to n. buniness to which time and speed is of vital importance. It is thought, too, that once the device is workable, mail will be placed on the roofs of Manhattan's skyscrapers to be dropped on the decks of outgoing llnent.
