plane which has just made its initial
successful flight. These machines
have a wing spread of sixty feet, a
fuselage of forty-eight feet, but their
total weight is less than that of a
sedan automobile. The capacity, or
as it is technically phrased, "useful
load' is 2,000 pounds. There will be
room in these planes for eight or ten
passengers, in addition to the seat
reserved for the pilot.
It is the intention of the "flivver
king of the air" to ultimately pro
duce these machines at the low figure
made posnible by "quantity produc
tion." The first two or three plane?,
being in the nature of experimental
machines, were quite costly, as is the
case in all initial production of any
nort of machinery. The speed of these
"Airford"" will be 100 mi)e an hour
for pleasure cruising, and a capacity
of 40 to 60 miles an hour in addition
to that, for war use.
It is Mr. Ford's intention that the
first commercial lines of his activity
will be the transportation of letters,
express and valuable freight.
The dream of Darius Green and his
flying machine fell far short of what
the Fords expect to accomplish. In
addition to these airplanes, or rather
"Airfords," the Fords are building an
all-metal lighter-than-air machine.
The portion containing the gas will
be made of duralumin, which is 90
per cent aluminum, 4 per cent cop
per, and a little cobalt. These gas
containers will actually weigh less
than the silk bags with their interior
"cells" now used In the every-day

Our Washington Letter
N. P. 8.
WASHINGTON, D. C April 21.
The country is still suffering
from the offhand creation of indepen
dent governmental agenciea all finan
ced with the money of the taxpayers
and all functioning largely indepen
dent of direct control. The total ex
penditures of these various depart
menta runs into many million of
dollars. Ostensibly under the direct
control of the President and free
from ordinary ' departmental super-
vision, it has been long appreciated
that money was being wasted, and
that the country was being committed
to a number of "foldcrol" activities.
All this for some time has been hold
ing the attention of the President
and in. his own matter-of-fact way
he has now ordered a survey of these
departments, their personnel and
their activities, and particularly their
payrolls, with the idea of -eliminting
or consolidating those divisions which
are not justifying the expense. It is
about time this was done, and the
President has selected the proper
moment. It Is already intimated that
a saving of from ten to twenty mil
liona is possible. Of course, there
will be walling on the part not only
of the chiefs of these little govern
mental principalities at losing their
Jobs, and there will be additional wail
ing on the part of the gentlemen who
got them their Jobs In the first in
stance, but the President need not
worry, and is not likely to worry,
judging by his attitude in the past,
over these temporary teapot tempests
which may develop.
THAT the United States is enjoying
a period of prosperity was empha
sised by the report mado by Secretary
of Commerce Hoover to President
The United States is the only na
tion In the world showing a substan
tial gain in business affairs.
Figures submitted by Secretary
Hoover show that the exports In
March were valued at 462,OOO,000
Imports at :W6,000,000 leaving
trade balance In Uncle Sam's fnvor
Comparison of figures showed that
the export trade of the United States
has Increased nearly fifty per cent
over that of 1014.
The report also shows that the out
flow of cold which started last De
cember is continuing. Exports of the
yollow metal for Mnrch amounted to
125,104,416. Against thia were im
ports of MAM Mi. Silver exports
wore greater than the Imports by
