Transportation week May 14-20 Reviewing the history of progress National Defense Transportation Day (May 19) and National Transportation Week (May 14-20) are observances which underscore United States dependence on mobility. Throughout U. S. history, the nation's transportation system has always measured up to the demands placed on it whenever and wherever it might be needed. During World War II, the United States turned out its famous Liberty ships by the hundreds, providing a means for de- livering wartime materials to nations all over the world. The genius to excel in the field of transportation goes back to the nation's beginnings. Nowhere else in the world were there wagons and carriages that surpassed in performance and durability the Concord Stage Coach and the Cones- toga Wagon that carried the entire na- tion westward. It was also in the United States that the railroad received much of the im- petus that was to make it the world's primary means of transportation before the advent of the motor age. That age was also an American inspiration, the brain child of Henry Ford, who made possible mass production of the auto- mobile. On the sea, Do port, MA, came up clipper ship, a b answer to transpo merchant ships of sailing ship to d speed records pf The decline of was brought about one of whose earl the American Robe nald McKay of Newbury- with the idea of the eautiful and speedy rt competition from other nations. No ate has equalled the the clippers, the sailing ship by the steam ship, iest developers was rt Fulton. Then, ships took to the air when a pair of bicycle builders—Orville and Wilbur Wright—decided to launch a new ven- ture, and the air age was born. In proclaiming this year's Na- tional Defense Transportation Day and National Transportation Week, Presi- dent Carter pointed out the funda- mental relationship between transpor- tation and the nation's welfare: "Transportation helps maintain our pros- perity, ensure our national defense, and bind us together as a people. An effi- cient transportation network is impor- tant to maintain our quality of life."
