I was no longer shooting in the dark. Here was a job, definite and tangible. My thoughts went suddenly to my plane ... the condition it was in ... the gas it would burn ... the distance we'd travel. Doolittle was talking again now. 'It's going to be a pretty tight squeeze," he said. "But it's all been worked out the-best possible way. We've made complete arrangements for us to land at small Chinese fields not far inland —after we've done our bombing. We'll tank up at the small ficlds-thc gns is there waiting for us-niul then we'll all-fly on to Chungking." Again he gave us the right to back out. But, of course, nobody did. When the meeting broke up, all of us drifted instinctively to our planes. Sonic of the boys walked along the flight deck, measuring off the alarmingly short distance between the island and the prow. You sec, we didn't have to be told that we'd'be-ablc to use only half the deck. We knew there wouldn't''^ any place to put the 16 parked planes except to squeeze them together on the stern. Even yrlght, 1943, by Kins Features Syndicate, Ine. Text copyright, IMS, Our planes took up half the deck ... then we figured that they'd take up nearly half the deck. So the boys who were pacing off. the probable distance we'd have for the take-off were measuring from the island in the middle of the prow. And scratching their heads at the end of their pacing. 1 handed out pads of paper among the crew of the Ruptured Duck and told McClurc, Clever, Davenport ami Thatcher to jot down everything that came to their mind, that would get the ship in better condition. I didn't have to tell them how important this was to all of us. We worked on the plane day and night. There was always We worked night and day, something to do or test on the engines or equipment.' We were all put to work memorizing cities and geographical landmarks along the course \vc planned to use on the raid. We spent hours poring over aerial photo-, graphs of the four Japanese cities marked out to be bombed, and we got an indelible picture of them fixed, in our minds, t •• •> Doolittle gave us the right to choose the citywe wanted to bomb.

Just when we thought the Good Neighbor policy was rocking along smoothly and we could take our eyes off it for more important war affairs, Senator Hugh A. Butler, Nebraska Republican, makes a-20,000-mile trip trough Central and South America and comes back to blow the lid off with charges that the New Deal has "boondoggled" its way through six billion dollars on this project.

Senator Harry F. Byrd, the Virginia anti- Neal Deal Democrat, iniS leader of the economy bloc, already has announced plans for his committee's investigation. During the investigations, bear these things in mind . (1) It soon will be election year. The Republicans and anti-New Dealers > have apparently got their teeth in something 'that 'may embarrass -the iDompc'rats. It's good politics-to-pursue'it. (2) Don't let that vast discrepancy in 'figures bother you. Figures can be made to do most anything. (3) Don't underestimate -senator Butler's ability to make a survey. A one-time engineer, he's methodical and knows how to handle figures. A one-time flour miller and grain man, he has a knowledge of agriculture. A former Rotary International governor and board director, he has a knowledge of trade relationships. He also is an educator and once was state moderator of Nebraska Congregational churches. In addition, he's a political scrapper who knows how to take advantage of his adversary's weaknesses. That's why Republicans are so confident that they've got something here. . Washington —A newspaper publisher, recently here for a series of conferences, asked me: ."Why doesn't some one in Washington tell the story of the advertising contribution that is being made^to the war effort?" I thought it was a swell tip, because at OWI they told me that Uncle Sam will get about $500,000000 worth of ''free advertising" in 1944. And they do mean "advertising" — not news^Jories. For every favorable mentfen the war effort has had in these departments, there has been at least an equal line, mabye more, of criticism and that's the way Uncle Sam wants it. That's freedom of'expres- sion and freedom of the pre'ss, they say and the word "free" is used in quotes because they didn't cost the government a cent, being contri buted either by public spirited in dividuals, groups, companies or the newspapers themselves. In maga zincs, on the n.ir, and in other media, a similar job was done. Free advertising for the govern ment in times of national stress i 'nothing new. In fact, archives am 'the Library of Congress record -such advertising before there wa out the next day'and congratulated the "Doll's" surviving crewmen with "a good show,' boys, and God bless you.". "Everybody was 'happy," 'as Lieut. Miles McFann, -25, 'ofl-El-Dp- rado, Ark., the navigator, 'tells >it. "We'd been through a tough time in the target area, but we 'hadn't been hit.

Chase was probably the first government official to put the handling of war loan advertising squarely up to private agencies. How billions in Liberty Bonds were sold in World War I is too well known to need recounting, but again it was proved that the only necessity was to make Americans aware of their responsibilities and, the value of what they were getting for their money. The pre-Pearl Harbor "Baby Bond" sales fair support and fair sales, nothing like what has occurred since Japan bombed us into World War II. What has happened since then is one of the biggest chapters in advertising history and the Treasury and OWI would like to see somebody write it. and knees, and was cut around the head."

The effectiveness of it is being highlighted behind the scenes now because in mid-January, the Treasury is going to kick off with its third grat war loan sale. The goal is $14,000,000,000 — approximately four billion less than the Second War Loan garnered. That campaign was characterized by Secretary of the Treasury Morgenthau as '-'the greatest advertising operation in the history of the world," and when he. said ^ it, he was giving out bows, not taking them.
