Los Ancles (UP) — Transportation of lettuce from California to the nation's markets by giant airliners is -one of th.c possibilities aviation., leaders ore considering for use of the tremendous wartime production of- four-motored pin new. : So • much attention has been jfivcn to the likelihood of usinfr -postwar air cargo planes—commercial versions of the "present warplnncs — for transcontinental vegetable shipments thai the U .S. Department of Agriculture has entered tho picture. This summer U. S. Agriculture technicians are flying- across the country in Transcontinental and Western Air, -Inv.. planes to study weather conditions and their effects on th« - vegetables. • First to make such a trip was Dr. .R. W. Hooker, chief of the Bureau 'oC Agricultural'Economies' fruit and vegetable marketing- section, who studied the effects of air transportation on lettuce.- . Tho results, he disclosed, were promising. Part of the first ship- ment.was taken to Washington ;'or laboratory study. The remainder was placed on sale- in unadvertised stores to test buying appeal. The lettuce was sold about 30 per cent above normal consumer prices to represent the added expense of air transportation and it was labeled as air-flown. Because lettuce is perishable and normally requires careful packing and icing, many aviation and agricultural experts view this vegetable as a prime postwar air- cargo possibility. They foresee overnight air transportation as eliminating this cost, preserving the outside leaves, where the vitamin content is highest, and thus delivering' a much 'sought food in the most attractive beneficial con- 1 ilition." The plan assumes that postwai air cargo rates will be far below those of today—a belief in which many aircraft leaders concur. ENROLL ;.•• 1944 Summer Course vale and. individual on the Accordion.
