chairman for September.
Mr. Bishop told the Rotarians of
his recent conference with Cap
tain Eddie Rickenbacker, presi
dent of Eastern, at EAL head
quarters in New York, at which
Captain Rickenbacker evidenced
an interest in year 'round service
including passenger, mail and ex
press, but not in seasonal service
only. Captain Rickenbacker was
particularly interested, the speak
er indicated, in the outlook for
tourist business and transporta
tion in connection with the many
manufacturing plants located in
this general area, including Aber
deen. Carthage, Candor, Robbins,
West End, Vass, Southern Pines,
Rockingham, Hamlet, Troy, San

Among reports he had received
were those of Mayor Forrest
Lockey of Aberdeen, Karl Rob

that are in Eastern's territory.
A letter to Mr. Bishop from Col.
Samuel T. Moore, assistant to the
commandant of the USAF Air

that travel to and from the school
would require 40 seats a week
each way.

tioned that the proposed schedule
would give one-day mail service
to Boston, New York, and that
