SAFER FLYING Army Air Force fields now have instrument landing systems at stra tegic airports along their 100,000 miles of military airways which make it possible to bring planes down through low ceiling condi tions to within 50 feet above the center of an airport runway. Samuel Inman Speaks Tonight Samuel Guy Inman is going to speak tonight in the Queens audi torium at 8:00. Samuel Inman is the advisor to the State Depart ment on Latin American affairs and a member of the United States delegation to the Mexico City con ference of the American Republics. Immediately at the end of this con ference, which has just been con cluded, he took a plane to North Carolina where he is giving a series of addresses in 21 colleges and universities during the two- week period from March 8 to March 22. 'These addresses are being sponsored by the Southern Council as a part of its program of public information which was inaugurated in North Carolina last fall. This state will be the first in the country to get from a State Department official a first hand analysis of the results of the Mex ico City conference. So let’s all take advantage of this wonderful opportunity! Would you like to help a poor, helpless negro child? You can. Furthermore, it will not tax you greatly to do so. A new negro nursery has been started here in Charlotte at the Mount Maria Baptist Church and is in dire need of supplies. S. C. A. here at Queens has asked 'Mrs. Williams, who is head of the nur sery, if the students cannot help her in her efforts. Emphatically she says we can by contributing any or all of the following articles: dishes, glassware, towels, wash clothes, blankets, sheets, tooth paste, tooth brushes, soap, chairs, tables, blackboard or small slate, rugs, cooking utensils, silverware, sleeping garments or any chil dren’s clothes, toys, dishtowels, toilet tissue, paper napkins and towels, and kleenex(*) S. C. A. is positive that every Queens girl has it in her power to find one or more of these articles, either by writing home for them or by actually getting them herself at home. An appeal is made especially to the day stu dents who will probably find these supplies more easily obtained than the boarding students. Bring these things to school soon and place them in the large cardboard box in 'The Hut. The nursery will not be able to open and rvm effectively if these commodities are not supplied soon. Can you find it in your attic or basement and gather cast-off things your young brothers and sister have used? We hope so. POST WAR AIR TRAVEL An average of 280,924 passengers will travel annually via air to Europe according to figures com piled by the Civil Aeronautics Board.
