Its modern facilities include genuine Frigidaire, Wedgewood tanges, and Marshall and Stearns wall beds. The house is- open for inspection. RECORD IS ' This new product of the Stanley Works of New Britain, Connecticut, has been hailed by architects, engineers and the building industry as a much-needed improvement. " 'v- IS PLACED OPENED BY T HEREC. R. HOUSE SUNDAY NEW PULLEflRflHTMEi.TS OUTSTANDING MARKE i S L A phenomenal record of progress In all branches of American aviation la revealed in the annual re. port of Major Clarence M. Young, director of the acronautlca branch of the Department of Commerce, which was made public today. The growth of air commerce and the air craft industry of the United Slates, Major Young believes, i due in no amall meaaure to the strict enforcement of federal regulations which has inspired public confidence in the safety of sir transport- During 1927 American factories produced nearly 2000 aircraft having a total value of $14,200,000 as compared withieas than 1800 val. nod at 18,870,000 during- the preceding year. Exports of aircraft and parts during 1037 amounted to nearly $3,000,000, an increase of approximately S6 per cent over 1U36. During the first half of the current year our total sales In for. in markets of aircraft products were 38 per cent greater than the entire shipments of last year. Air transport, Major young declares, has now attained a definite place in the economic scheme of transportation. The established-airway system is the backbone of our commercial aviation, although operations over this network form onlyone-tenth of all civil flying. These routes now cover 11,191 miles on which 87,817 miles are flown dally. Of these, lO.SSSNullea are under mail contract and 200 mail planes fly 153,234 miles daily over these routes. There are now 8880 miles lighted, 1800 miles under contract for night flying, and -8308 additional miles considered for lighting during- the fiscal year ID; S. The cities actually connected by the routes at the close of the fiscal year numbered 88. the trading areas served containing SO. million people. By the close of the cur rent fiscal year It Is believed that almost all of the larger cities and many of the middle-sized commune itles will be connected by air routes and that smaller feeder lines will serve many outlying cities- Communication to aircraft In flight along the transcontinental route, the report states, will be Available within a short lime. Kadio equipment is under construe, tlon for replacing obsolete appar-aiim now in use. The new apparatus will provide radio-telephone or radio-telegraph communication as may be required on frequencies between 100 and 600 kilocycles. Considerable research and testing work was conducted by the Bureau of Standards for the aeronautics branch during the period under review. These investigations embraced radio aids to navigation, lighting of airways, sound proofing of airplane cabins, airplane control tests, and tests of. commercial aircraft engines. 1 - Approximately 600 airplanes are ' ''V . 8 t i , v," . . j ? - WJS; .

It Js obvious. Major Toung states, that a very efficient org-anlsatlon of the inspection section is esen. tlal In order to carry out the work-involved. To this end, factory inspectors are being employed and trained as rapidly as possible for the purpose of Inspecting and licensing "new production" airplanes at the time they leave the factory. This, it is pointed out, will aid the Industry by facilitating the issuance of licenses in the first Instance, although these plane will still require periodical relnspection by the field personnel of the department. Applications for pilot's and. me. chanic's licenses showed striking increase during the past fiscal year, due in large m ensure to the publicity given the epochal flights which occurred during that period. By June 30 laHt applications wore on file for over 6500 pilots and 6000 mechanics which was about three times the number on file on the corresponding date the previous year. On June 30 over 4700 appli cations had. been received ror "M censing airplanes as compared wltn 1100 at the end of the 1937 fiscal .'.

In order to pass on the qualifications of these applicants, the bureau maintains 40 inspectors In the field.

'.The now pulley,. now being used In thu Must buy by Architects' U II, MoCorkle and Douglas Dacre Stone, is highly approved by tho building trades and has undergone extensive tets rquivalent to 140 years actual uso before th cord will snap." declared Parker. "Until the perfection of the Dillon pulley design the Stanley Works refrained from the production of a pulley. The 'Oillon' Is now offered lo the trade with the assurance that it. wfll conform to tho same standard of quality and workmanship which bus been characteristic to Stanley hurdware for tho past SO years.

HIE USE PUBLIC A recent market analysis of the United States, gathered and charted by the t'agool Motors company, shows that 1 to 3-ton trucks donil.' note In public improvement work, and thut Ibis field Is showing such a vemarkalilo increase ln truck buying that the eyes of manufacturers are being drawn toward It, These figures, from T. R, BUI. snlcsmonnger of the Fageol company, show how much of our tax dollar goea into trucks. Bill goes on lo say: "We find that 18,000 trucks are owned by SO00 counties doing effective work In highway construction and maintenance-averaging nlno trucks to each county. While a third of these are of the 2',a to' 8-ton sUe, 71.8 per cent of the 18,000 trucks have a IK -ton cnpaclty or larger. Forty- eight atates own 17,000 motor trucks of the same proportion of sizes as those used In county work, except that there itre fewer of 'the very small size. Figures show that 1407 cities having a population of mora than 6000 use 4S00 txucKs. ) per cent of which are of variety, 41 per cent of 1 to 5-ton sUe, and H per cent of ti-ton or larger sizes. These figures do nut Include 18,600 trucks of other city departments for such as street cleaning, refuse collection and disposal activities. Of this number, IS, 000 are dump trucks of 2-ton capacity or. larger. Email, munict-palltles having from 1000 to 5000 population use 841 1 trucks, most of which are of 1 to 9-ton sixes. "The fact that' there la an aver, age of four motor trucks to every paving concrete pilxer in use' on a, highway Job gives an Idea of the market for motor trucks among oontractors. Most of tho ney construction and improvement street repair work is done by contractor who also engage In other public Improvement work, making It difficult' to obtain, reliable data re. gardtng the number of trucks they use, though the number is very large. "Although we have met the demand for larger trucks, we feel the need for a lighter truok. Our desire to enter this field has led us to make an analysis in view of man--ufacturlng a truok which wllj meet the demand for smaller rucka tor road maintenance work. When .
