Abiity to Develop High Speeds
With Safety Will Eliminate
Much Competition
"The future of aeronautics de-
pends largely upon its business pos-
sibilities," said Prof. Felix W. Paw-
lowski of the aeronautical depart-
ment of the engineering college
yesterday afternoon in one of the
Summer Session lectures in the
Natural Science auditorium.
"Furthermore the ability to at-
tain great speed with comparative
safety will lead to the development
of aviation in the future," he ad-
ded. Railway trains can not de-
velop at the present stage of en-
gineering a speed much over 701
miles per hour due to the physical
inability of the rails and road bed
to hold in place. Similarly, in ocean
traffic, although the Atlantic pas-
sage has been reduced to five and
one-half days, liners capable of
carrying many persons can not be
.so constructed to lessen by more
than a day at the most the time
required for the trip. Due to the
lesser resistance of the atmosphere,
a plane can attain high speed with
greater ease than can land and
water types of locomotion.
With more than ten years .of
commercial flying completed in
Europe, air fatalities compare fav-
orably with railroad tragedies, and
are somewhat less than those of
navigation. The recently increas-
ing number of airplane accidents is
due primarily to the fact that there
are more and more planes being;
Professor Pawlowski said that in
the United States at the present
time these necessary facilities are
greatly deficient in quantity. How-
ever, commendable efforts are
being made by the government and
cities to provide adequate airports,

Organization to Abolish
(By Associated Press)
BOISE, Idaho, July 12.-An or-
anization of the 11 western states



to promote the welfare of aviatior
was formed here Wednesday at the
closing session of the Western
States Aeronautics convention.
The new organization will be
known as the Western States Aero-
nautics association and will consist
of one delegate from each state
to be appointed by the governor.
It was provided that the membei
appointed by the governor of Idahc
should be permanent chairman of
the organization. The new organ-
.i:ation is believed to be the first of
'its kind in the country.
A supplementary resolution adopt-
ed by the convention instructed the
association to work to bring all
state aviation laws into conformity
with federal regulations with a
view to greater uniformity.
Such an organization is expected
to accomplish much in clearing up
the difficulties arising under the
present situation with aircraft reg-
ulations as widely divergent.
