Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - September 16, 1929, Mason City, Iowa TWO MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE GERMAN RIVALS WlTOliOWN Graf Zeppelin and D oX Leaders in Competing Aerial Craft FRiEDRICHSHAFEN Germany Sept 16 the shores of Lake Constance is being waged in seriousness despite Its out ward appearance of frienllriess a battle that will to a considerable extent Influence the future of avia tion is essentially acontin uation bit the generationold strug gle between lighterthanair and Fieavlerthanair craft the batOa of Cake Constance bids fair because of the energy being expended and the aver increasing size of the weapons employedxra either sideto bring the issue to a more or less definite conclusion Eckner Is Leader HereiaFrledrichshofen are on trenched the proponents of the Ilghturfthauair theory represented by tha Zeppelin company Their most active leader is Hugo Eckner commander of the Graf Zeppelin Perhaps no aeronautic enthusiast in the is so firmly convinced that the future of aviation lies with the dirigible as is DrKckener Not withstanding his inherent cautious ness and conservatism a short con versation with this 61yearold Zep pelin pilot imniedlatly reveals that hs sincerely belieyes he will live to see the day when the dirigible has been securely established as the backbone of travel by air Across the lake at Altenheln in Switzerland are located tie famous Dprnler works There haa been bullfc the giant airplane Do Xp whichthe Cornier brothers Claud ius arid Maurice will soon send forth as their reply to Eckeners challenge In bringing the Graf Zen pellri safely aroundthe world While the Graf Zeppelin normally carries 20 passengers and a crew of40 tno Do X carries a crew of 20 and forty passengers thus roughly speaking cutting costs in half and doubling1 the potentiaHncome of the ship For shorter flights the DoX is expected to be able tq carrjrSO passengers in addition to theegular crew Performance Compared Performance aswell aspotentiiU revenues be com pared toguage properly the relative capabilities i and usefulness of the two monsters of the air As yet the Do X has only been given a few trial flightsover Xake Constance It has not beenput thru its paces over a longer and consequently more trying course Compared with i this record the GrafZeppelin has made several successful flights the most notable being the recordbreaking trip around tKe pleted Zeppelin officials herebe lieve this lastflight alone should oe sufficient to1 convince the doubtr era that the dirigible hasa long lead over the airplane for endurance flights On the other handthe honors for speed must go to the Do X It has already developed more tlian miles an hour in ifstrial flights and its constructors clainv a niaxir mtum speed of 150 miles and a malcruising speed of ISO milesan hour for it when It is takenovera longer course This contrasts with the normal speed of the Graf Zcp peliri which Is only 65 to 80miles an hour Flies Only Short Time Admittedly however the Do X falls far behind in the matter of can cover With load that is of passengers and freight it can carry fuel enough for a flight of only eight hours althb by sacrificing the profits of some of them which would be derivedfrom a full load additional fuel can be carried for a longer trip The Grill Zeppelin can carry a full passenger load arid still have enough room for a trip of at least 120 hours Discussing the economic potenti alities of the Do X Dr Claudius Dorriier designer of the alrplaue told the United Press Why are the revenuemaking possibilities o the airplane today almost nonex istent Simply because the airplane up until now could hardlytlo more than carryIts crew and Its necess ary supply of fuel and oil whenever It had to cover a distance of more than 500 or GOO miles DISTRICT COURT JURORS DRAWN Court Will Convene Under Judge Reed of Cresco on Sept 30 DECORAH Sep tember term of the District Court will open at Deborah Sept 30 with Judge
