I/P) The Navy today dramatized its bid for a major combat role in this jet- atomiq age in formally launching the giant aircraft carrier Forrestal biggest warship ever built.

Arid crows will slyly follow a hunting fox until it kills a rabbit, then dive bomb until the fox desprts his meal — which the crows then share. Crows regularly post sentries to warn-of danger. If a sentry deserts its post the elders of the flock immediately organize a punishment party which literally knocks the 'feathers off the offender as a «j\esson to him and other sentries.
