AIRPORTS BEING PREPARED ALONG PROPOSED ROUTE (Continued from page 1) of the above mentioned means of transportation could not be brought to a successful development without the proper establishment of adequate terminal facilities, and therefore if aviation is to be brought to a success ful establishment as a means of trans portation, attention and support must be given to the establishment of ade quate terminal facilities for the air craft being used. A glance at the development of any one of the above means of transporta tion and the accompanying growth in population and industry of the termi nal centers incident thereto, shows very clearly how closely the two are interdependent one upon the other. In the same manner the growth of coast al and river communities has been found to be most closely related to the harbor and docking facilities for the watercraft in use. Therefore it is not unreasonable for us to assume that from the standpoint of aircraft this development and this growth will result interdependently one upon the other. This brings up the point that mu nicipalities, should they desire to pre pare themselves in an adequate man ner for the developement of aviation of a commercial nature, both in its application as a means of transpor tation and with reference to its util ity in a community, must as a primary step establish adequate facilities for the development of an air port. The benefits to be derived from the establishment of a suitable airport by a municipality may be covered from two standpoints: first, from the stand point of the proper support being giv en to commercial aviation, and second, from the standpoint of its share of contribution to adequate preparation for national defense. The building of an adequate air port immediately places the city or community so doing in the system of commercial aviation in the United States. The city or community •is then available as a terminal or stop ping point for aircraft and the bene fits of a rapid yet comfortable means of transportation is available both to or from the airport. With aviatiop established as a utili ty of the community, the various uses of aviation are brought to its people. The every day civic uses of an air plane may be stated as follows: Archi tectural studies of individual buildings or groups of buildings; city planning and improvement; ambulance service; police patrol; fire patrol; mapping of forests; location and reporting of fires; photographs of forests for iso lating infested areas; patrol against •raids and depredations of any charact er; location of desired timber; bound ary patrol; mail service; military and naval; official government service; map making and national survey; prelinllnary study of grounds for pre paring development plans; engineer- 1 ing studies; factories, buildings and massive construction work; progres sive photographs; observations from all angles for inspection purposes, and hundreds of other commercial uses. Personal uses of airplanes include: overland travel to business; from sum mer home to city; missionary socie ties operating in localities that are far out of regular paths of travel; service vehicles for doctors and other professional men; vacation trips, trips; fishing; flying to and from hunting trips; sports and scien tific purposes. The late world war was a means of developing personnel in this coun try familiar with aviation from a re latively small number previous to the Avar to a number running into the hundreds of thousands at the close of the war, this number including pilots and men trained in the care of aA'iation material. There are some twenty thousand former officers of aviation now returned to civil life. If the training of these men during the last war is to be capitalized in pre paration for the future, facilities must be afforded in peace time * for them to carry on their interests in avia tion and retain a fair degree of prac tical and theoretical knowledge with reference to the subject. o Prominent Speakers Will Address Penney Managers Subjects of wide range, but all touching on business ethics will be featured by the speakers at the J.

TREASURERS ASK NEW DELINQUENT COLLECTION LAWS The county treasurers of the 14 counties fn the state will ask the com ing legislature to pass a new law re garding the collection of delinquent taxes. This was decided upon at the annual meeting of the treasurers just closed in Phoenix. Governor Hunt will be asked to include a recommen dation of the measure in his message to the legislature. The new law Avhich the treasurers Avill ask will be modeled after laAvs now in effect in Illinois, Montana, Utah, Oregon and several other states. It will provide for the advertising of delinquent taxes and the sale of the tax liens at public auction. All penalties for non-poyment of taxes will be discontinued in the pro posed measure and a straight one per .cent a month interest will be charged. As the law stands at present it is necessary for treasurers to bring suit in the courts to foreclose on property where the taxes have not been paid. This is a cumbersome procedure, ac cording to the treasurers and they say that the proposed law will simplify the work of collecting taxes and bring more money into the treasury. According to the treasurers the law that they propose Avill also give more protection to the taxpayers as they J will have three years in which to re deem the tax liens. The interest rate of one per cent a month will also be slightly less than the interest and penalities now charged, on delinquent taxes. State Treasurer Hubbs and Treas urer-elect Vernon Wright and County Treasurer J. K. Ward of Phoenix Avere named as a committee to draft the measure to be submitted to the legis lature. o Twenty-Eighth Annual Convention of Cattlemen The twenty-eighth annual conven tion of the American National Live Stock association will be held in Al buquerque, January 14, 15 and 16.

Kaibab To Be Name of New Trail Into Grand Canyon A recommendation that the new trail being constructed by the national park service from the south rim of the Grand Canyon down to the sus pensions bridge be named the Kaibab trail has been made by J. R. Eakin, superintendent to the Grand Canyon park. Superintendent Eakin says that the new trail will offer the short route to the Kaibab forest on the north rim of the canyon. The trail starts at a point three miles east of El Tovar , and decends through a wonderful scenic route to the river and Phan tom ranch. Despite the fact that severe winter weather has visited the canyon, the snow and cold have not halted the Avork on the trail. The new T route will be completed in several months. o COUNTRY SCHOOLS There are 17 4,9 4 7 one-teacher schools in the United States with 3,- 500,000 children attending these schools. you one of the any thousands who vk ke this better way? : Lytona Baking Powder—it Ssk er fails.
