According to a interview with his generally admiring former secretary, Miss Frosthe was led to the name while riding on the top of a London bus. It was evidently no pedestrian epiphany. The word first appeared in a four-page leaflet entitled Now or Never, published January 28, The leaflet was signed by Rahmat Ali and three fellow students at Cambridge University.
That leaflet used the form Pakstan no letter i and implied an expansion: At this solemn hour in the history of Indiawhen British and Indian statesmen are laying the foundations of a Federal Constitution for that land, we address this appeal to you, in the name of our common heritage, on behalf of our thirty million Muslim brethren who live in PAKSTAN - by which we mean the five Northern units of India, Viz: Punjab, North-West Frontier Province Afghan ProvinceKashmir, Sind and Baluchistan - for your sympathy and support in our grim and fateful struggle against political crucifixion and complete annihilation.

in the United States also developed controllable-pitch propellers. Prior to the development of VPPs, some vessels would alternate between "speed wheel" and "power wheel" propellers.
The controllable pitch propeller, which has attained great importance in aviation, may have an equally important part to play in marine engineering. The author in this article reviews the history of the controllable pitch propeller, tracing its beginning from successful water turbine applications.
