Sioux Center News (Newspaper) - April 21, 1955, Sioux Center, Iowa Volume m Numnik ctn Tir of Sioux Iowa official City and county newspaper april 1955 i commented last week on the navys flying platform and Ive been thinking a Good Deal about that new device years ago there was a popular comic strip called Buck Rogers that depicted life about 600 years i dont know if the striped but i know i Haven f seen it in Many it was quite popular Back in the late twenties and would be even More popular the characters in this comic strip were individually propelled by a pair of rockets fastened to a harness that was strapped on the Back and they Dida lot of flying at High now in beginning to believe this Buck Rogers Era was dated much too far ahead and that it May Well be that individual flight with some similar device of the kind worn in this comic strip will be accomplished before the close of this whether there will be interplanetary i the Progress of science would seem to that some of us will live Long enough to read about the first expedition to the and that will be quite a letting the travels to the Moon its rather fun to imagine what life would be like if most of us had Aerial locomotive devices we simply strapped on like a pair of roller the problem of keeping children out of the Garden or off a newly planted Lawn would be nothing like trying to keep a group of adventure bound teenagers off your most of us would have win burned faces at this time of the year and wed have to have two kinds of cloth warm things for flight and Light togs for on the weather reports would have to he a Good Deal More reliable than they Are because More people would depend on taking the family out for a flight would be a rather common recreation for f and the sight of father and Mother
