LYNCHBURG -We finallymade it inOct-
ober.. .boarded our first 1000 passengers ,
to be exact, 1067. I believe there were
two factors that helped us to make the
goal. First, people seem to be turning to
air travel more and more, and second,
October was an excellent month weather-
wise. Don't believe we had more than 3
days of actually bad weather.
Looking forward to that steak dinner, with
all the trimmings. If the month of Novem -
ber holds up as faros weather is concerned.
we are looking forward to our biggest
month yet. The big day this month will be
November 23, as we will board in the
neighborhood of 125 - 150 col lege girls.
We have two big colleges here, and the
majority of the students travel by air. If
□ II goes well, we should hit 1250 at least.
The station wagon sure does come in handy
these days with increasing air travel. Be -
lieve it haspaid for itself already. George
Gilbert went down to RIC for a halloween
party - didn't see him for about four days-
when he came back he had quite a smile
on his face, wonder what went on?
NEW BERN - A little good news from EV^
this month. We have started our spri ng
cleaning a little early this year - maybe
we should say a little late. There is not
much we can do to improve the looks of
our office here except use a little paint
and rearrange the furniture, jf you would
like to know the color we are using forthe
walls,just look at the Atlantic Ocean on
the airl ine map.

experiences to relate, as has been the
case with her past vacations.

welcome and introduce to you Miss Pat
