Without a word, Diana turned and walked out of the room and ,up the stairs. She felt that only by keeping silent could she maintain her dignity.

There was a critical shortage of coffins in many cities and headlines in New York newspapers told of "the unburied dead in .Queens cemeteries."

' STORIES IN STAMPS To Be Many Pilots in U. .5 Experts Believe That Soon Million in U. S. Will Fly By JACK STINNETT WASHINGON - Although much has been written about the training of Army and Navy pilots, few persons realize the enormity of the growth in civilian flying. The other day, I beard n reasonably conservative aviation association, official estimate that within the next few years one out of every 100 persons certainly—possibly one out of every 50—in the United States would hold a pilot's license of'some kind. Thai would mean a considerable acceleration in the rate at which the country now is turning out civilian pilots (about 100,000 a year), but when everything is considered, it is not an impossibility. For instance: .1. Under the inspiration nnd guic ance of the National Aeronautic As sociation, the number of model nir Plane builders in tile U. S. has crei up to 2,000,000. These youngsters lear the elements of aerodynamics an plane • construction, Although youth Cut hbobics can't always be taken i an indication that a youngster wi. choose a profession in that direction aviation is different n that the re wards which it holds out as a profes sion are likely to appeal to the youn : much as mode juvenile. 2. The Civilian Pilot Training Pro gram has come of age. Thousands o youngsters every month are rollin out of the cock-pils in hundreds o college and contract schools to ear wings for their solos nnd start th long trek through the airways townr becoming aces of private, commercia or wartime aviation. The Army an Navy has recognized the value of thi program nnd now is giving credit fo flying time when graduates enroll i the armed services. As an example of what this pro grnm is accomplishing, I wnnt to pas oh a report from little Doane College at Crete, Neb., which I saw the othei day. Out of 40 graduates of the elo mentnry CPTP course there i n the last year and a half, six are in the Army aviation corps; another six in the' Navy; three more are awaiting call';'two are taking advanced training- to become flight instructors; six others have completed secondary flight training in the CPTP course Out of 20 CPTP students there now, have applied for the advanced , December 3, 1941 Harrison in Hollywood I, PAUL MAMIWH, NEA Sefvle.

Nowhere is it more true than in Mexico. Mexico is proud to have one of the oldest universities in, the Western Hemisphere. It is the National College of San Nicholas cte Hidalgo, founded in 1540, long before the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock. Mexico issued the 1940 stamp above, which pictures Melchol 1 Ocampo, a former president of the school, as one of three values commemorating the 400th anniversary of the founding of the National College. Higher education has always been a force to promote goodwill among nations. Recently a large number of students from Amen* :an colleges and universities have ione to Mexican schools on an ex* .•hange basis.

The discovery by the Army and Navy that the air flivver, or "putt- putt," is of vital importance in organization of a modern war machine, borne experts on war maneuvers this summer are predicting that the part these little air "jeeps" played in messenger, taxi and observation service will result eventually in all the field services having their own "grasshopper squadrons." That means the nir flivver," at one time .believed threatened with ex Unction by priorities, will bave just as much opportunity as the fighter, bomber and scout plane to develop under the existing program. Back of it all, say the aviation experts, is the certainty that come peace nnd quieter times, civilian America will be the most air conscious country in the world. As Gill Robb Wilson, president of NAA, put it recently: "Combat aircraft moving at 400 miles per hour 35,000 feet above the earth are the couriers of tomorrow's commerce. Bombers carrying a load of 20 tons a third of the way around the earth without refueling are the forerunners of cargo and passenger ships of post- I Cable-Laying Crews in Utah They Are Heading for a Wedding of Wires AP Feature Service OMAHA, Nek-Just as the mil- oad had their driving of the golden pike, the communication systems in notlier yenr will have a wedding of he wires to symbolize tho historic mion of the nation's first coast-to- oast underground cables.

In December of 13-12 ossibly sooner, crews facing the west nd crews facing the east will meet at Wenclover, Utah.. When they do, the country will have a buried communications system protected against sleet, lightning, fire and easily effected wartime sabotage or destruction. And there will be greater insurance that there will be no disruption in the flow of long distance telephone calls, telegraph and ilit'Ietype messages, fy'ansmi!.s.sion' 'of pictures and radio programs. Hard work and lots of it is this $21000,000 project of the American Telephone and Telegraph Co. and affiliates, who are burying twin cables from Omaha to Sacramento—1630 miles almost as the crow flies. With exception of a few short gaps, soon to be eliminated, underground cables now extend from New York li Missouri Nearly fiOO miles of cable already have been plowed in from Omnhn westward, and the linos to Denver will go into service early in December, the A. r, & &T. announces.
