Aviation Advance Revealed at Show

New York-(AP)- Aviation's business men and scientists examined yesterday the newest developments in the flying industry as the groups gathered here for their annual winter sessions.

At Columbia University the scientists listened, under the aegis of the Institute of Aeronautical Sciences, to the men from the laboratories and classrooms describe their developing theories of flight.

In Grand Central Palace the National Aviation Show opened last night with the first indoor exhibition of planes Gotham has seen in seven years.

As the 32 planes in the show— ranging from "hedge hoppers" that run slightly over the $1,000 price mark to the bigger transports— were readied for the public showing, members of the Aeronautical Chamber of Commerce of America heard a report that 1936 business was up 85 per cent over 1935.
