NATIONAL AIRLINES added another facility for the convenience of plane passengers here
yesterday with the formal opening of a ticket office in the lobby of the Cape Fear hotel. Shortly
after the new office opened for business, the ca mera man snapped John H. Farrell in the act of
offering congratulations to Mr. T. Prevost, in cha rge of northern division activities for National.
Shown left to right are James L. Holomon, Wilmington manager, Farrell, Prevost and behind the
counter, W. H. Allen of NAL staff here. Opening of the new office gives airline passengers two
down-town ticket outlets, the other being the Wi lmington Travel Agency on Princess street.

The new “flying bicycle’’ un
veiled by the Army Air Forces
last week embodies a startling
innovation. Ordinary helicopters
require a large power plant which
delivers its energy to the hub of
the blades, or rotors. This 310
pound. two-rotor machine has
small jet engines which are at
tached to the tins of the blades.
It functions like a pinwheel.
The new engine probably is an
adaption of the power unit used
in the German V-l flying bomb.
This was a small tube equipped;
with an air valve nd a spark
plug which used the intermittent
jet principle. An engine not much
larger than t e exhaust pipe of an
ordinary airplane could t.eliver
75 horsepower.
As a military vehicle, the new
aircraft will serw as a simple
aerial observation post. Its val
ue to civilians remains to be seen,
but if the two little wing-tip jets
make half as much O' a Dopping
roar as one of those German

PARIS (U.R)—A “dollar curtain”
is keeping American books and
publications out of France at a
time when interest in the United

A new regulation forbids the

shortage. Booksellers, educa
