Cover: In commemorating the tenth anniversary of the China Clipper this month, we reproduced on the front cover one of the most famous pictures of that gallant ship, made on the occasion of its first flight from San Francisco westward to Hawaii and the Philippines. The still uncompleted San Francisco and Oakland Bay Bridges are seen in the background. The orange stripe across the top wing was painted there to make spotting easier in case the ship was forced down while at sea. The story of the China Clipper and her sister ships, the Hawaii Clipper and Philippine Clipper, begins on page 8. ……. Articles Inside: … “Legal Beagle” ( Joseph C. Little ) …..
