Flight Tests of Modifications to Improve the Aileron Control Characteristics of a North American XP-51 Airplane (AC No. 41-38)

Flight Tests of Modifications to Improve the Aileron Control Characteristics of a North American XP-51 Airplane (AC No. 41-38)

Date: June 1, 1942
Creator: Hoover, Herbert H.
Description: Investigations were undertaken to improve the ailerons of a P-51 fighter so as to obtain greater effectiveness without increasing the stick forces. Modifications consisted of increasing the deflection range of the aileron to 70 percent and changing the original concave section to a thick section with beveled trailing edge. Results of the modified ailerons showed an increase in effectiveness over the original aileron of 70 percent at low speed and 55 percent at high speeds.

Stubble-Mulch Farming for Soil Defense

Stubble-Mulch Farming for Soil Defense

Date: 1942
Creator: Carter, L. S. (Logan Sampson), 1906- & McDole, G. R.
Description: "Stubble-mulch farming, spectacular in its recent spread across the West, has sound scientific support. In one form or another, it has been demonstrating its advantages on experimental plots and in isolated field trials for many years. It is a practice that furthers the highest crop and livestock production compatible with the principle of soil security. It is a simple but effective method that will help us to avoid in the present emergency the disastrous aftermaths of the plow-up program of the 1920's. Materials for mulching are at hand -- products of the land itself -- waiting to be used for the retention of crop-making moisture and soil. Equipment can be bought on the market, or it can be rigged up by the farmer himself. Stubble-mulch farming can be fitted into a general conservation system -- applied to grain fields, row-crop land, and strip-croppered areas. It is flexible and economical, requires less mule power or machine power." -- p. ii
