Shippen, Jr. Aviation Editor of Tho Star An extensive experiment com pleted here yesterday by the Air Transport Command reveals that an overwhelming majority of pas sengers would rather ride backward than-forward in airplanes. Since October, an ATC Skymaster on the tri-weekly "Statesman" run to Fairfield, Calif., has been trans porting passengers in reversed seats. Of mqre than 1,000 who made the transcontinental flight, 94 per cent voted for the safety, convenience and comfort of flying backwards. This result was obtained, however, in a modem transport on which the tricycle landing gear keeps the plane on a level position on the ground. Passengers might find backward-facing seats uncomfort able in older-model planes, in which cabins slant upward toward the nose while on the ground. When the goal of 1,000 passengers was passed, the Pacific Division of EDUCATIONAL. CIVIL SERVICE EXAMS. CIVIL SERVICE EXAM.—Be well prepared.

(Tivoli The ater Bldg- 14th and Park rd. n.w.) the ATC, which operates tne route, was Instructed to return the seats to normal position, while results of the test are under consideration. The method so far has been neither approved nor rejected for future ATC operations, it was said. ATC traffic officers and passengers agreed there is almost no noticeable change in flying backward, except in take-offs and landings. The project was based on a survey of opinions of AAF flight surgeons and an analysis of accident reports. Both sources revealed the human body, if properly supported, could withstand the decelerative shock of many crash landings. Reversed seats seemed a logical solution to ATC officers, who have seen to the safety and welfare of 4,600,000 passengers in the last four years. The Air Materiel Command now Is conducting experiments on the reaction of the human body to various forces of deceleration.
