PORTRAIT s""l OF Quality, Character Artistry DIAL 6318 ADAMS STUDIO 8th Floor Trust Bldg. 22 YEARS IN WILMINGTON National Airlines Seeking New Air Route To Link Wilmington, Florida Cities With Pacific Coast Area »__ . An application for a southern transcontinental air route to link Wilmington directly with California was filed Friday with the Civil Aeronautics Board by National Air lines, Inc., it was announced yester day by G. T. Baker, president. Na tional, a domestic and international air carrier serving 28 seaports and centers between New York, Florida, Cuba, and New Orleans, is one of the major scheduled air lines of the United States. Through its application to the CAB, National seeks to bridge an important gap in the country’s air line pattern. Baker pointed out that the proposed service would estab lish a new transcontinental trunk which would provide cities in Florida, along the Gulf Coast, and through the border states with the same type of one-plane, through coast-to-coast air transportation that northern and central sections of the country have enjoyed for years. “The proposed new route, Baker said, “is a logical westward 'ex tension of National’s present opera tions.” He referred to NAL’s cur rently operated short-cut across the Gulf of Mexico which now saves two hours between Miami and New Orleans. National’s application is for the projection of this route, known as A. M. 39, westward from New Orleans to the co-terminals oi San Francisco and Oakland. Major Eastern terminals would be Jack sonville and Miami, Florida. Holds Record lne application is based upon ex tensive research and study by Na tional which has used the southern transcontinental route for years in taking delivery of new equipment from Pacific Coast aircraft manu facturers. President Baker himself holds the official speed record for twin-engined commercial aircraft between Los Angeles and Jackson ville, and unofficial records for 4 engined transports have been estab lished by NAL planes over the same distance. A total of 17 new cities would be added to‘National’s “Route of the Buccaneers’’ by inauguration of the new. transcontinental service. They are: Baton Rouge, La.: Dal las,. Fort Worth,. Galveston, Hous ton, San Antonio, and El Paso, Texas; Hobbs, New Mexico; Tuc son and Yuma,'Arizona; El Centro, Brawley, San Diego, Los Angeles, Fresno, and San Francisco, Cali fornia. Between New Orleans, western terminal of National’s present ope rations, .and El Paso, Texas, two separate routings are proposed — one via Baton Rouge, La.; Fort Worth and Dallas, Texas, and Hobbs, ■ New Mexico; the other, through Galveston, Houston, and San Antonio, Texas. National, Baker said, proposes to operate the new route with a fleet of 300-mile-an-hour Douglas DC-6 transports on which the airline will start to take delivery before sum mer. These planes, which represent the latest development in air trans ports, will be equipped to carry 58 passengers and a crew of four — pilot, co-pilot, . and two flight stewardesses. Supplements Fleet The new DC-6’s will supplement th? fleet of 46-passenger DC-4 Buc caneer transports and Lockheed Lodestars with which National is now flying 32,298 milfs daily. National has worked its way up into the ranks of the major domest ic and international operators in the comparatively short space of 12 years. G: T.

LUNAN Now that Clement Attlee and his goverjirpent in “Merrie England” are socializing all. important in dustrial activity in the "Tight Little Isle,” we feel a wave of appre hensiveness lest the Labor jiarty, after it completes the task of tak ing over the coal mines, railways and utilities, find it expidient to annex for the people the old inns of England. Without much ado, the “Old Lady of Threadneedle Street.” after centuries of aloof ness and solidarity,' was gobbled up,'lavender, old lace, gold bullion and prestige, into the maws of the latest experiment in socialism as currently practiced by Attlee, Ee vin, et al. And no teiiing—the many old inns of England, which for 700 years or more have played an important part in the social history of Win ston Churchill’s beloved country, may be next on the Attlee list. For the inns of England, have at oiie time or another been the meet ing-place of every typ? of English man from Kings to commoners, to say nothing of the millions ol tourists, including thousands oi American and Canadian service man, who in the course of two wgrs, have come to know them well. Historical Events Roaming the English country side during intermittent ‘ten-day’ leaves during World War I. we found that almost every ancient inn of town or village had some association either with historical events or famous persons who "have stayed under its roof. Old records reek with the names of poets, merchants, seafarers, priests and pilgrims who had passed an eve ning in quaint taproom or slept the sleep of the just in a canoped four poster. g.ou: can reaa somemyrg oi*rms land’s story in her -colorful inn-' signs. Names like the Royal Oak,' the George, or the Rose and Crown rdcall monarchs and their emblems. English sport is symbo lized in the Fox and Hounds, the Bat and Ball and the Compleat Angler. The Cat and Fiddle and Dick Wittington tell of national folklore, while familiar signs like the Lord Nelson and the- Duke of Wellington :commemorate. Eng lish heroes. Returning Gl’.s tell us that the character of the old English inn has not changed with the passing of the years, although in meeting the traveler’s needs it has tried to inaugurating, service over a 142 mile route between St. Peters burg and Daytona Beach, Fla., with two Ryan monoplanes of the type made famous by Col- Charles A. Lindbergh in 1927. During its first year of operations. National carried a total of 400 passengers. Today, National is flying nearly 1,000 passengers for every one it carried in 1934. In 1946, the airline flew over 173 million revenue pas senger miles representing more than 221 million available seat miles. The line became an international carrier oh December 15 by in augurating thp first one-carrier through service between New York and Havana via Tampa, and ad ditional one-carrier service between Miami and the Cuban capital. It is now seeking to further extend these international operations to Balboa in the- Canal Zone and Kingston, Jamaica, in the British West Indies. Profits Consistent Business reports attest that Na tional’s growth has been sound as well as steady. Through careful planning and management, and maintaining load factors at a high level during periods when other carriers slumped, National has been one of the few airlines which have consistently shown profits. keep abreast of the times They say that in roadside inns through out the country they found every reasonable comfort, yet the atmos phere is still reminiscent of days when stagecoaches roiled into spacious yards. During one ten-day journey into the hinterlands of beauteous Eng land we learned that some of the oldest inns of the land were actual ly built: and maintained by the Church, for use of pilgrims who journeyed about the country-side in the Middle Ages. After the monasteries were dissolved during the Sixteenth Century, many of the religious hostels became or dinary licensed houses and have continued so down to the present day. The Falstaff Inn, according to W. H. Owens, a recognized au: thority. on the subject, still stands just outside the West Gate of Can terbury, where if was built over 500 years ago. Housed Pilgrims The famous -George at Glaston bury. which was once part of the Abbey buildings, housed pilgrims from many parts of Europe and its fine stone facade shows the ecclesiastical influence in its de sign. The New Inn at Gloucester, which is actually the oldest in that city, was built to accomodate the Dilgrims who flocked to Edward II’s shrine in the cathedral there. ROund its open courtyard is the meaiaeviai gauery, approaqnea d.v a flight of stairs, by which pil grims entered their lodgings after washing themselves at the pump below. Few of these galleried court yards are left today, but there is an interesting example at .'the George in Southwark, London. It was'her.e that some of. the earliest performances of Shakespeare’s plays were given. Indeed, historians claim', the English drama had .'its beginnings in the courtyards of mils before theatres were especial ly. buiit for the purpose. ' : , .i - 'When : traveling / became, more frequent' and stage-coaches were introduced' the English inn became a national institution. Many of. .the earlier hostelries were enlarged,a.nd new ones were .built along the chief highways., and .in the market towns. Coaching inns are still distinguish ed by their splendid fronts, spaei-. ous public rooms and wide covered courtyards, where. the horses drew" in while travelers refreshed them selves. ..... As we recall, among the inns of that period is the Great White Horse at Ipswich where Dickens stayed, when as a young reporter on the Morning Chronicle, he visit . _— ;d the town to cover a parliamen ary election.. The Angel at Bury it. Edmunds and the Bull at Ro chester are two other famous coaching inns associated with the iiTjmortal Mr. Pickwick and his friends. Traveling along the Great North Road, one day, we passed many nterestirig inns which were just ly celebrated in the coaching era, and we understand, continue to serve motorists today. The village of Stilton, near Hunt ington, gives its name to the cele brated cheese which was served to coach passengers by the host of the old Bell Inn there over a century ago. The Angel at Grant ham, originally a pilgrim’s guest house, displays the carved heads of Edward III and his queen Phil ippa, over its courtyard gateway. Richard III was a guest at this inn in 1483. Inns with literary, associations abound everywhere in England. The Three Crowns, at T ichfield was a favorite meeting place ol Doctor Johnson and his friend Boswell, and every year a festive supper is held there by Johnson admirers on the anniversary of his birth. In the parlor of the Red Horse at Stratford-upon-Avon our own Wash ington Irving, penned part of his “Sketch Book.” The Lion at Shrewsbury was frequently visited by both Dickens and De Quincey, the last describing a sleepless night spent in its huge ballroom in “The Ooium Eater.” uia Aunospnere Hie older inns around the shores of England have a charm and at mosphere all their own. Most of them are small, intimate places which have served for centuries as meeting-places of fishermen and seafarers. Many a costal inn has memories of the smug\ers and sea-pirates of the Eighteenth Cen tury when their landlords took a hand in that unlawful “free-trad ing,” .And so today on the coasts of Yorkshire or Cornwall, one may find inns with secret cellars and hiding places which . were once .used for storing contraband goods away from the eyes of the law. Although they all reek with the musty odor . of by-gone days, the old inns of England are today a very important link in the chain of industry which under Mr. Atlee, is fast passing from private hands to public ownership. ^ Perhaps the British Labor party’s “noble experiment’’ will not in clude . socialization of England’s historic inns and Weary travelers will continue to enjoy a tankard of Burton and a game of darts with Ye Olde Hoste amid surroundings of charm 'hat have lived on with the passing of centuries.

MENTHO-MULSION FOR COUGHS DUE TO COLDS W«rD-73« . STATE SENATORS TO DRAFT PLANS South Carolina Legislators Facing Busy Week At Columbia By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS COLUMBIA, S. C„ Jan. 12 —UP)—. A Senate caucus Monday night will be the starting gun for the 1947 session of the new 87th general as sembly that will meet organization and new administrative problems. The caucus of holdover and for mer senators will agree on a Sen ate president pro tempore and on committee assignments as its prin cipal business, with Edgar A. Brown of Barnwell slated to hold his presidency, and his finance committee chairmanship. nigh noon Tuesday will bring the formal convening of the assem bly and start the House on its un predictable course of electing a new' speaker to succeed Rep. Sol Blatt of Barnwell, who after 10 years as speaker has said he would not seek the post this time. Rep. Bruce Littlejohn of Spartan burg, Rep. Charles Plow’den of Clarendon and Rep. Thomas H. Pope of Newberry are the an nounced candidates for speaker. An address from outgoing Gov ernor Ransome J. Williams is due sometime this week, probably Wednesday, and an inaugural talk by Governor-elect J. Strom Thur mond was on next w'eek’s agenda. The beginning of Thurmond’s term Jan. 12 will be the signal for initiation of new administrative policies that will crowd on top of minor Senate and major House reorganization difficulties. George Bell Timmerman, Jr., will take office Jan. 21 as lieuten ant-governor, the state's first since Williams succeeded to the govern orship in January 1945. With a new speaker who will ap point all House committees anew, the representatives will be in the throes of committee organization and committee work for a week or more. Demands for a 25 per cent teach er pay raise, expansion for over crowded state colleges, and vet erans’ bonus proposals loom as principal problems for the new assembly that numbers 47 World War II veterans among its 90 new members.
