April S.- Safely in airplane flying hinges more upon a perfect nervous system than any other single element, according to experts who attended the congress of America.* Flight surgeons here. Good nerves are more essential than mere physical strength and muscular development they declared. Pot this reason, mental condition Of fliers was watched at American I training camps even more closely j than their physical condition. Major J. O.

Nearly every flier carries the maximum $10,000 insurance, the machine costs between $12,000 and $20,000, and the remainder of§the sum represents the government’s Investment In training the aviator.
