(By Associated Press)
Chicago, Dec. 3.-America's fast-
changing airway map for passen-
ger air lines today had two new
projected routes dotted , in-one
spanning the continent by the first
all-air route, the other linking
New York and Chicago with over-
night service.
Giant monoplanes equipped to
carry 32 passengers in comfort
equal to the finest railway accom-
modations are now under con-
struction in the New Jeey fac-
tory of the Fokker aircraft corpo-
ration for use on the two routes.
Announcement of Anthony H. G.
Fokker's latest achievement in air-
plane design, the largest passen-
ger plane ever projected on a pro-
duction scale in the United States,
was made Sunday night by Herbert
Reed, secretary-treasurer of the
Fokker corporation.
News of Fokkers latest plans
spread rapidly among flyers and
air enthusiasts at the Internation-
al Aeronautical Exposition where
the announcement was made, and
brought to life dozens of stories
concerning the Dutch designer's
experiences with planes.
Thirty-five thousand person'
milled around the Coliseum ex
position halls Sunday, examining
the wide range of new planes or
display. Hundreds filed by the
booth in which Fokker, recognized
by few, spent the day listening
to comments of people who ex-
amined his new eight-passenger air
yacht, on display for the first time
at this show.
"Has that funny looking air-
plane-boat actually flown?" a wo-
man asked Fokker, pointing to his
new air yacht.
The Dutch designer smiled
broadly and nodded his head. He
turned to one of his associates.
"That women just asked me a
question which I have been asked
hundreds of times. In fact, many
so-called experts have been ess,
polite, predicting that my planes'
would not fly."
The new 32 passenger Fokker
plane will have a wing span of 100
.feet, an over-all length of 65 feet,'
have a high speed of '145 miles a
hour, and will be powered with
four 525-horsepower enginAs in
double tandem so arranged that
the plane can fly on any two mo-
tors.

350 USE BUILDING DAILY
With the completing of the vari-
ous units of apparatus in the In-
tramural sports building at Ferry
Field, an increasing popularity is
being gained by the building, the
latest addition to the University's
athletic plant.
All of the squash and handball
courts are now in use, the lighting
equipment, which held up their
use, being complete in every detail.
The last unit to be finished, the
swimming pool, has continued to
draw a large number of men stu-
dents. Installing of the final
equipment in the huge gymnasium,
of the sports building is nearly'
completed, only the screens for theI
windows yet to be erected.
With all the handball courts
available and the swimming pool
in use, the number of students us-
ing the building has greatly in-
creased in the past few weeks. At
present more than 1,000 are mak-
ing use of the equipment, the
number of lockers shows. Approxi-
mately 350 men studentsdundertake
athletic activity each day, it isI
estimated.
Forestry Books Are
Moved From Library
Most of the booksf or the new
Forestry library have been trans-
ferred from the main library it was
announced by Inez Bowler, forestry
librarian, yesterday. At the pres-
ent time there are 2,500 books in
the library, most of them having
been transferred from the main li-
brary. but some are new additions.
The capacity of this new depart-
mental library with the present
facilities is about 80,000 books.
According to Miss Bowler, the
purpose of the forestry library is
as much as possible to be a re-
search library. With this end in
view a great many foreign books
have been purchased. A predomi-
nance of the books of this type are
German, although Swedish and
French are also included. In addi-
tion to books the library also sub-
scribes to about eighty magazine
pertaining to forestry and allied
fild of wild life. Many of these
too are foreign.
