Kaval Aviation had received very
little publicity up until the time the
Trans-Atlantic Flight was accom
plished by this branch of the Govern
ment Service. A big work was being
carried on during the war, however,
(both on this side and the other side
of the Atlantic) with very little noise
resulting from same. Twenty-eight
Patrol and Training Stations were be
ing operated In Europe by the U. S.
Naval Air Service when the Armistice
was signed. In addition to these, sev
eral Lighter, and Heavier-than-Alr
Patrol and Training Stations had been
established on our own coast, and an
efficient Patrol Station was being op
erated by the U. S. Naval Air Service
In the Canal Zone.
The European "War has thoroughly
-demonstrated the value of Naval Avia
tion for defensive and offenslvepur
poses In time of war. Valuable peace
time uses of this Arm of the Govern
ment Service have also been develop
ed from which U. S. Tax Payers will
derive benefits in addition to the mili
tary protection of their homes.
Aerial Photography is one of th
greatest by-products of the World
War, and the U. S. Naval Air Service
Is now utilizing this new profession
In connection with general coast-line
and military mapping, ; and also for
Fleet purposes. Aerial Photography
will be developed in time of peace by
Naval Aviation, and In addition to its
military uses It will be utilized In
ev-ery possible manner in conjunction
with the various Government Mapping
Departments for correction of the
present maps and charts and in the
mapping of xmsurveyed territory. Thia
work has a big field and provides an
Interesting and valuable employment
for those who desire to take it up.
Photographers are needed at thi3
time to carry on this work for the
United States Navy. Men enlisting
In thU branch of the Service will re
ceive instructions at a Naval Training
Station covering a period of approxi
mately two months, and then will be
sent to a School of Aviation Photog
raphy where they will be taught how
to make all kinds of photographic ex
posures on the ground, from speed
boats, and from Naval seaplanes. They
will be taught the theory of the vari
ous branches of photography, will re
ceive practical instructions in the mix
ing of chemicals, in general Jabratory
and outside photographic wortf, will
receive instructions In Aerial Photo
graphic Mapping, and be developed
Into efficient all-round photographers.
Graduates of the School will be given
a Petty Officer's rating and sent to
duty with a Fleet Aviation Detachment
or to one of the U. S. Naval' Air Sta
tions. - S
The U. S. Naval Air Service also
has openings at the. present ' time : in
the following ratings: Machinist's
Mates (A), Machinist's Mates (A) (In
strument Makers). Quartermaster
(A Seaplane and Dirigible, Carpen
ter's Mates . (A), Shlpfitters (A).
Blacksmiths (A), Coppersmiths (A),
Gunner's Mates (A), Special Mechanic
(A), Electricians (A) (Radio and Gen
eral), Enginemen (A), Molders (A),
and pigeon Men (A).
Men serving with the IT. S. " Naval
Air Service have an opportunity to
see the World both from Ships of the
Ocean, and from Ships of the. Air. .
The- following is one of the many
Incidents which take place in the lives
of Naval Aviation men and shows that
this life Is anything but the humdrum,
monotonous " kind, and is that which
naturally develops initiative, decision,
and careful judgment on the part of
Three Naval Aviation Photograph
ers. E. L. Windenburg, C. R. Kromer,
and C. J. Nassano. are accompanying
the writer on the cruise of the New
Pacific Fleet from Hampton Roads,
Va., : to Seattle, Washington. Upon
arrival at the Panama Canal we left
the New Mexico and proceeded im
mediately in one of the Ship's boats
to the Naval Air Station near Colon
for the purpose of, flying over the j
Canal and photographing the Fleet as
it passed through. ' j
Three Liberty-Motored Flying Boats
immediately commenced our first
Ocean to Ocean flight. , Both motion
pictures and still photographs were
made of the ships and points of in
terest, along the route. We flew over
the edge of Colon, then over Limon
Bay, and entered the Canal Zona
proper. After a short flight we passed
ovor the Gatun Locks and saw below
a dreadnaught entering - one of the
locks with another passing out into
the lake. To our right was the Gatun
Spillway which we circled several
times before passing on over Gatun
Lake. After passing over Tiger Hill
in Gatun' Lake) and photographing the
U S. S. Arkansas and Texas which
were taking on coal from lighters be
low us, we flew on at a speed of about
eighty miles an hour and soon passed

On. our left hand, several hun

in the lead. We circled them several
times and then passed on to the skirts
of Corozal, Ancon, Balboa, and Pan

the cities at our left while the waters

and other battlecraft at anchor. Now
In the distance as far as the eye could

Our flight from the Atlantic to the

t lan an hour with the motors of all
three seaplanes faithfully performing
the functions required of them. How
ever, soon after circling Panama City
the second time a water, leak was dis
covered in the coolingsystem of. "our
motor, and we glided to the calm wa
ters below in order that the neces
sary repairs could be made before
commencing our return trip. After si
short time we had the leak mended
but found the water, in our radiator

It was decided to hold a meeting of
the board of directors of the south-wide
organization in Savannah, Georgia, be
tween November 13 and 30 at which
meeting general business of the organi
zation will be transacted and definite
plans for -next year will be mapped out
Besides transacting routine business,
th? executive committee referred a
number of matters to a conference o

for consideration and report back.
The general outlook for the develop
ment of the south was considered by
the executive committee and the feeling
was exprssed that it is good and that
the merits of that section of .the coun
try are becomlnjr more widely and fa
vorably known than ever before. The
committee adjourned subject to the- call
of the chairman. - , '

Lankers. business men and others Into a
stae organization that will affiliate with
the Southern Settlement and Develoo
rr.ent organization. Mr. Ucker will be
an active spirit in this campaign, which
Is designed to piace Mississippi in line
with other progressive southern states

1st going on in ' the south with the co
operation of federal .and state authori
ties, - business organizations, railroads
and progressive people in all walks of
life. : . . .
Later on, in October, there will be a
campaign In Florida to enlarge the scope
ot the affiliated organization in that
slate. Mr. Ucker will participate in this
campaign also. The Florida organiza
tion, known as the Florida Cattle Tick
Eradication committee, has done much
go6d work during tht. past three years.
Largely through its Influence, the state
legislature created a state live stock
sanitary board and passed a county ,op
tion cattle dipping law; vats, for cattle
dipping have been built in every county
in the state and a majority of the coun
ties have voted In favor of systematic
and , compulsory dipping of all cattle.
This work has progressed in a very sat
isfactory manner, it is stated, with the
result that much of Florida has been
cleared ,.of the cattle tick.
It 1 proposed to . organize a Florida
Landowners association on a broader
basis than that of the cattle tick eradi
cation committee and that this associa
tion,:, as said by Dr. W. F. Blackmail,
secretary of the anti-tick . committee,
"will undertake to promote a number of
movements vital to the future of the
state, especially along the lines of agri
culture and Immigration, such as the
development of Improved pastures and
forage crops, the Introduction into the
state of registered breecrtng stock, the
conservation of forests and a better sys
tem of fire control, the more adequate
support of the state agricultural college
and, experiment station: the enrichment
of rural life, especlaly by means of bet
