Taft Would Loan To Canada First Expresses Opposition to Sending U. S. Ships Into War Zone COLUMBUS, O.--Sen. Robert A. Taft, R., O, said today Canada should be given'lirst consideration if this nation decides to grant war loans to any foreign country. "In war, peace or anything else, we are tied closely to Canada," he said. "Moreover, Canada is likely to pay back any loans."

Only a few years ago the airplane airplane was a plaything for the wealthy and the daring. But they'ie common now, and in the last 1wo years flying lias become a fascinating hobby for more than -50 Coshocton people wiio are in training for their wings. T h e licensed airport where these 50 men and women have taken their instruction and practice practice flying is Tn-Riveis, two west of town along the level of the old Ohio canal. On the field is a capacious modern hangar hangar which now houses the port's "cub" training plane, a gasoline pump to service the trainer and any visiting ships, and a small building used as an office by James Roberts, the instructor and port operator. Tuesday Tri-Rivers "graduated" its first student--23-year-old Paul West, who earned his private pilot's pilot's license after 100 hours of spare-time flying. And P a West's experience is a typical example of what has happened to the 50 "fledglings" who are still taking an hour or so of instruction and practice flying at Tri-Rivers every week. The novice who walks into James Roberts' office for his initial initial lesson finds first that there's great deal more to flying than climbing into a seal and waggling some strange controls. His (list flight is preceded by an emphatic lecture from Mr. Roberts on common-sense common-sense rules, which lie learns rCantlnut'Ct un PdRf NEW COLD WAVE TO REACH MIDDLE WEST
