Afr Transportation Has Possibilities
For Future, Worley Says In

London To Capetown, Is Flier's Hope

That the future success of commer-
cial aviation is probable from. present
indications, and that the industry
will undoubtedly develop in the city
of Detroit, were opinions expressed by
Prof. John S. Worley of civil engin-
eering department in an interview
yesterday on the probable growth of
/transportation in this country.
"As to air transportation," he said,
"it has all the earmarks of great
possibilities. Whether the means to
be used will be lighter-than-air craft,
heavier-than-air, or an entirely new
type of ship, it is difficult to say at
this time."
! The probable growth of the industry
in a city famed for its automobiles
was attributed to the facilities which
Detroit offers for the manufacture of
aircraft. "In addition to the manu-
facturing plants, which include the
large groups of mechanical engineers,
the community has large amounts of
,o ailable wealth and many men who
'ave shown courage in building up
the motor car industry," he said.
In remarking upon the future of
te motor bus, Professor Worley!
stated that this means of transpqrta-
tion will not develop extensively for
passengers or freight on long hauls,
but that the practice of running bus-
es from outlying communities to the
centers. of large cities will probably
'be successful.
In regard to the railroads, he said
they would not extend their opera-
tions into new territory, but' rather
would develop their present systems
more extensively. In spite of the bus
operations, "which are really only
*supplementary, the railroads will con-
tinue to be the backbone of our trans-
portation system," he said.
Hoover Names
Michigan Man
T0 mines Post
Scott Turner, mining engineer, who
was recently chosen director of mines
by Herbert Hoover, secretary of com-
merce, is a Michigan graduate, having
received the degrees of Bachelor of
Arts and Bachelor of Science in 1902.
Following graduation from the Uni-
versity, Turner studied at the Michi-
gan College of Mines at Houghton, re-
\?ceiving the degree of Mining Engineer
in 1904.
He immediately entered active work
in the mining district of western
United States, serving as field super-
intendent of the Ugnited States geo-.
logical survey, millman, executive,
and assayer for private interests from
1902-05. Traveling southward to the
Province of Veragua, Panama, he
spent one year as general superin-
tendent ,for the Pontiac-Panama Min-
ing company.- Retiring momentarily
w from field activities, he acted as as-
sisting editor of the Mining and Sci-
entific Press, of San Francisco.
Alaska was the scene of Mr. Turn-
er's next activity, where he acted as
operating engineer with gold-mining
interests in Nome, Dawson, and Fair-
banks. Field work in the tin mines
about Cornwall, England, occupied
hin for several months, after which
he journeyed northward to Spitzenber-
gen where he became general manager
of the Arctic Coal company, an Amer-
ican firm, with operations in Norway
and Spitzenbergen. During his con-
nection with the latter firm, he open-
ed and operated coal mines for five
years on the island of Spitzenbergeh,
825 miles north of the Arctic circle.
Recently the engineer offered an
extensive'collection of minerals to the
department of Mineralogy of the Uni-

ment, the myths that were spun
caused throughout the North a wave
of sentiment that threatened to kill
Florida as a resort state.
Gambling Passes
Th results of the awakening are
apare t in Florida at the present
tinie. The moment of insane gamb-
ling has passed and has been super-
ceded by staunch investment and sub-
stantial business. The days of sales
on "binders" or optional deposits with
a given time limit, have gone forever.
Realtors make it clear to prospec-
tive buyers that a binder entitles
them to no equity in property, with
