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."

And P a u l West's experience is a typical example 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 a great deal more to flying than climbing into a seal and waggling some strange controls.
