Lufthansa Report Reveals
Numerous New Lines in
South America.
Chicago Dally Xt.i Corrcipondant.
BERLIN, June 15.—Hie determina
tion with which the Nails are increas
ing their air service from Europe to
South America, and in South America
itself as well as to the Far East, is re
vealed in the annual report of the
German Lufthansa for 1937, published
here today.
German planes crossed the South
Atlantic with mall 104 times during
1937, compared to 75 times the year
before, according to today's report, and
have now crossed a total of 350 times.
In South America itself the Germans
last year added a new line from Natal,
Brazil, to Buenos Aires, Argentina, and
several new lines northwest and into
the interior of Brazil itself, the
Lufthansa report reveals. A complete
service is now in operation from Natal
over the Andes to Santiago, Chile, and
during the current year Lima, Peru,
and Natal also will be connected with
the Brazilian coast.
Most of the westbound mall which
the Lufthansa carried over the South
Atlantic last year came from Germany
Itself, although tiiere was a big in
crease in mail from England, Italy and
Holland as well* Most of the east
bound mail originated in Argentina in
1937 and Brazilian mail, which had
led the year before, fell to second
place relatively, although there was an
actual Increase in its volume.
A new route to the Par East is in
process of being opened up to replace
the previous route over Russia which
the Soviets have blocked. The new
line was opened to Bagdad via Syria
during 1937 'an dhas since then been
extended to Teheran (Persia) and
Kabul, Afghanistan. Trial flights have
now shown that the new route is prac
tical, at least so far as Sianfu, Shensi
Province of China, but there is no reg
ular service that far as yet.

This is no discourse on the adage that

cause . . . sometimes there jp plenty of
sunshine but not enough rain and some
times there’s plenty' of rain but no fertile
soil; but it is a fact that many small ad
vertisers get splendid results from con
sistent, though small, advertising; this,
of course, is proved by the fact that many
small advertisers who started the prac
tice years ago . . . still continue. In
creased sales produced by the use of
advertising have made the businesses
of these small advertisers . . . grow
steadily larger!
The Star, finding this to be true from
experience, seeks to help other mer
chants who, as yet, have not relied upon
advertising for increased sales. Star
records will show innumerable cases
where small advertisers have been very
successful and Star service today holds
out its helpful hand to those anxious to
“do something” about getting business

over the bathers.

council limiting the speed of auto
mobiles In Oreenbelt to 25 miles per
hour. Violation of the regulation
would be punishable by a line of 52

persons making .unnecessary noise.
