THAT repairman's headache, the jumble of wires on the bottom of a radio, may join crystal sets in the museum. Two new processes mass-produce neat circuits, easy to check for trouble. They promise to do for average radios what printed circuits (PSM May '46, p. 131) are doing for miniatures. In a system invented by A. M. Hathaway and developed by Spraywire Labs, of Minneapolis, a plastic panel is covered by a Scotch-tape stencil of the circuit. Through this, grooves are sandblasted, then spray-gunned full of atomized metal. Two guns can spray more than 1,000 units an hour.
Luxurious new Independence replaces the travel-worn Sacred Cow to speed President's aerial travels. WHEN the President of the United States travels, a 315-mile-an-hour plane speeds him swiftly and safely to his destination. Named the Independence, after President Truman's home city in Missouri, the special new Douglas DC-6 cruises 100 miles an hour faster than the Sacred Cow, the DC-4 that carried Presidents Roosevelt and Truman and other high officials to 55 nations in trips totaling 431,000 miles. Extra gasoline tanks give the Independence a range up to 4,400 miles, and a pressurized cabin permits high-altitude flight. A blue-and-tan exterior design, representing the American eagle, outwardly distinguishes the flying White House from other craft of its type.
