LONDON, June 6. London news
papers arc being delivered to towns
along the reacoast, cast, south and
west, and to cities In the midlands
by aeroplane. One of the nation's
most enterprising Journalists has
sent huge bundles of the - final
edition of a London morning and a
London evening paper to towns 100
to 200 miles distant in short time via
the air route, one machine often,
passing over several cities dropping
bundles of newspapers by means of
This adventure means that Eng
land more than everMn the past will
be dominated by London newspapers.
For years London newspapers have J
blanketed the Brfitish Is'Iea, selfing
in Dublin and Belfast, strange as it
may seem, as rapidly as they do In
London. The same has held true with
regard, to towns In Wales and Scot
land. As a result, papers in the
smaller towns, especially in the daily
field, lhave been stifled. Even cities
of 50,000 population have only weekly
papers printing only local news.
Residents at seaside resorts like
Margate, Brighton. Bournemouth,
have heen surprised by a machine
suddenly diving Into view from above
the clouds, releasing a. parachute
which gracefully floats down with
a 'JOO-pound waterproof package of
newspapers. A motorboat picks Up
the bundle and soon the prornenaders
are rea'ding the latest news of the
worid. The aeroplane clfmbs back
tnrougn tne clouds and proceeds to
other cities, releasing parachute
bundles of the latest edition.
Sometimes aviation news deliverers J
drop d6wn to the beach, taxi up to '
the unloading station an,d then reas
cend, sometimes the papers . are
dropped in a park. Seaplanes can
