Herbert Hoover, Jr., son of
President Hoover, has taken up his new position in Los Angeles,
where he will be in charge of planes operated by the Western Air
Express. It is the desire of this company to make commucations
possible between passengers in planes and ground officials.
Officials of the air line assert that under Mr. Hoover's
direction, it is the intention of the company to provide such
complete service that a passenger aboard the plane may be
connected with any ground number, and a person at a ground
station may put in an ordinary call for a passenger aboard the
plane in flight....
