As life runs to-day, it is a long time since Kipling wrote his story of the airways of a future world and thrust out a prophecy that the bulk of the world鈥檚 air traffic would be carried by gas-bag vessels.

No; it all depends on you, Rhoda, whether I am glad of it to the bottom of my heart, or whether I give it all up as a thing not worth striving for. Except the Digamma, echoed the doctor merrily.

SoI called in Jack Shewmaker, by now our president and chief operating officer, and asked him if he wouldmind swapping jobs with David Glass, our chief financial officer. Not your everyday request from thechairman in most companies, I guess. I valued the talents of both of these guys enormously, but I had myown reasons for wanting to see how the switch might work out.

Like so many of the ideas that have made our company work from the beginning, we're still more or lessfollowing this same strategy, although today we've moved into some cities outright.
