FREEDOM OF FLIGHT -10-

VANDEBERG:  My answer, Miss Scott, is positively 'yes'.  Now we have an opportunity ... perhaps our last ... to give the airplane to the world as an aeronautical step to solid, international economy, which simply means friendship and peace.  But first the work you began thirty-six years ago must be completed.  The airplane must be universally accepted.  That's why the doors to this First Annual National Aircraft Show have opened tonight.  That's why visitors are coming by the thousand to see the message of peace power staged with aviation's first total exposition.

SCOTT:  Thank you, Mr. Vandeberg.  Now, Mr. [[strikethrough]] Gene Wilson [[/strikethrough]] Harry Woodhead, President of Consolidated Vultee Aircraft Corp. and a Governor of the Aircraft Industries Association.  What does your Association promise for the air age?

WILSON:  We're looking ahead to better living thru air transport, Miss Cott.  Aviation is no longer dangerous, bu the industry needs men of courage to help the airplane realize its full potential.  Civic leaders are especially able to help.  The Air Show's host city, Cleveland, Ohio, is one of the most air minded in the world.  We need the keen vision displayed by the Mayor of that city, his honor, Thomas A. Burke.  Perhaps Mayor Burke can tell us what opportunities he expects of aviation for his city.  Mayor Burke.
