ABSTRACT
The author comments on various issues in New York as of February 18, 1956. Governor William Averell Harriman's incumbency, to him, is the reason why New York has no state tree and this might get him into a conflict with tree lobbyists. There is concern about an airline whose flight to Cleveland was taken by a New York working girl. The author tells why he considers the solar furnace in his hometown not a new invention, but comparatively a new tool for pure research.
