Air Derby Emphasizes v
Need of Airport Here
It does a fellow good sometimes to get out of town for a
few days gives him perspective, the ability tcT see both the
good points about the home city and the places where im
provements might be made. So thinks Walter Zosel, who has
just returned from Spokane wfrere he attended a convention
of Seiberling tire dealers.
It so hanpned perhaps not too incidentally that the
Seiberling convention was held on the same dates as the
famous air derby, and Mr. Zosel was greatly impresd with
the hold which aviation is: takiag on the Ameridan people,
and with the prospects winch av;iation enjoys for future ex
pansion, as revealed there.
Salem ought not delay in protruding landing facilities which
will be a credit to the city, Mr. ',Zosel urges.
Another thing which impressed the local business man
while on his trip to and from Washington was the attractive
entrances which are being built at the outskirts of many of
the cities through which he passed.
Highway entrances to Salem should be similarly beautified,
and there is no reason why they should not be outstandingly
beautiful and impressive, considering Salem's natural ad
vantages, he declared.
