The 1 out of 20
that didn’t get smoked
HP here’s a lot of satisfaction in pointing out something good to a friend. That’s why
1 it often happens that one cigarette out of a pack of Dual Filter Tareytons never does
get smoked.
People break it open to demonstrate its unique Dual Filter containing Activated
Charcoal. They may not know why it works so well, but they do know this: It delivers
far more than high filtration ... it brings out the best taste of the best tobaccos-05
no single filter can!
Try a pack of Tareytons. We believe the extra pleasure they bring will soon have
you passing the good word to your friends.
Product of ij’/mt
1. It combines a unique inner filter of ACTIVATED CHARCOAL
... definitely proved to make the smoke of a cigarette mild
and smooth ...
2. with an efficient pure white outer filter. Together they bring
you the real thing in mildness and fine tobacco taste!

Federal Aviation Agency
Reveals New Title, Program
In its accelerated program to
greatly improve air safety, the
Federal Aviation Agency has an
nounced a new name and impor
tant new and stepped-up pilot
services at Bryan College Station’s
FAA Air Traffic Communication
It will now be called FAA
Flight Service Station and will
still be located on Easterwood
William S. Hall, station chief,
said today, “There are more than
250,000 individual flights a day
over the nation. Over 90 per cent
of these flights are made under
FAA’s Visual Flight rules, and
only 10 per cent of these flights
are made on instruments. Most
of our work here at BryamCollege
Station’s FAA Flight Service Sta
tion aid this large group of visual
flying pilots.”
Last year more than 13,000 pi
lots responded to the radio call
“College Station Radio” and were
helped to make their flight safer.
Hall Explains Flight Plans
Hall explained that flight plans,
filed by pilots under Visual Flight
Rules, now are being teletyped to
each FAA Facility along the
planned flight route, instead of
only to the destination station.
Each FAA Flight Service Sta
tion which receives a flight plan
computes the time at which the
airplane is due over each station’s
area. The FAA specialist on duty
is able to immediately relay to the
pilot any last minute weather
changes or other flight hazards
Weather Reporting System
“The new system,” FAA Station
Chief Hall said, “also makes pos
sible the maximum u^e of the new
pilot weather reporting system re
cently established between the
FAA, the military and civilian
“This is a voluntary general
weather reporting plan tlndbr
which each pilot aloft reports any
weather he is flying in or can see
that might cause a hazard to fly-

ing; These helpful weather re
ports are then relayed to other
pilots in the area.”
The Bryan-College Station FAA
Flight Service Station, as do the
335 other such stations throughout
the nation, also aids the pilots by
accepting and closing flight plans,
offering pre-flight briefing to pi
lots, furnishing point-to-point
communication, broadcasting reg
ular weather information, giving
expert assistance to aircraft in
trouble, and, when necessary, in
itiating search and rescue actions.
At Bryan-College Station there
are 8 people highly trained for
this work.
Giant Program
Hall commented today, “This
stepped-up service to private and
executive pilots is a part of the
Federal Aviation Agency’s giant
program to modernize the federal
airways, and to do all that it can
to foster and develop civil avia
Created by Congress in the fall
of 1958, the authoritative Federal
Aviation Agency, in addition to
modernizing the airways and fos
tering the development of civil
aviation, has the task of directing
air traffic control of both civil and
military aircraft, allocating the di
minishing airspace and both issu
ing and enforcing air safety rules,
said Hall.
