No, Just One Lane Formation Combat Will Mark Air War This Time By BRITE CATTON \KA Washington Cnrrcsponclrnt WASHINGTON -Nobody aruund heie really knows, of course, just what the great European powers wili do with their jir fleets if the pre.-i'nl crisis develop.-: into ;> seneral war . Military experts, however, who h.ive.; - — made it their business to study trends in aerial warfare, have some pretty good ideas about wh.it is likely to happen. First of all. they remark that the ordinary- civilian has a misconception of the tactics which probably will be seen. The famous single-handed combats of World War days-the "dogfight," familiar to inovie-goers~-aie apt to he rare. Instead modern practice places emphasis on formation fighting. Fighting planes are believed more effective when they cruise in groups, flying high and waiting for .1 chance to swoop clown on smaller enemy groups. Brvlin Mav Not Be Raided It is considered doubtful here that British and French bombers will attack Berlin—not even in retaliation for possible German raids on London and Paris. Instead, it is held, the British and French tombing fetes are likely to concenlrrate on German industrial plants and railroads lines. And there is more than a hunch that the German bombers may operate in the same way. at least for a time. Nevertheless, it is believed that a basic point of French and British air strategy will be to guard the great civilian centers in those countries from attack. This will call for aggressive action to " bottle up" the German air force, if possible, and decrease its effectiveness us a long- range striking arm. There is still a good deal of uncertainty about the exact degree of effectiveness of anti-aircraft defenses. The supposition is that these defenses may be considerably more effective than is popularly supposed. Army men point out that the only actual demonstration in recent years was in Spain, where the anti-aircraft equipment was neither as complete nor as efficient as that of England, and France. Even so, it is said, defensive activities in Spain made precision! bombing difficult. I Pursuit Planes Chase Bombers I The chief effect of anti-aircraft bat- I tcrics is to keep raiding planes so! high that it is hard for them to drop bombs very near to their selected targets. Even better than the batteries are squadrons of fast pursuit planes. Ahle to move faster and maneuver m"if rapidly than bombers these can har-iy .1 bombing feet so effectively as to i inn it.< Ability to accomplish it.s mission, unless the bombers are ac- compained by Luge groups of protecting fiehters. U. S. army men never did join in! the sneers which were directed at ITritain's famous "balloon barrage" for > the aerial defense of London. On the c'Mitiary. they're deeply interested in it. ; This ,-ystem calls for whole strings' of captive balloons moored around the city, with loops of wires beneath them. In theory, at least, it would make it impossible for any bombers to cruise at less than a 5000-foot altitude—and one of the important points in air raid defense is to make bombers stay up high. The Zeppelin raids of World Wai- days aren't likely to be duplicated. /Vs far as the U. S, Army knows. Germany has but one or two dirigibles left, and it isn't expected that anymore will be built—at least not for bcmbing purposes. The Germans suffered huge losses \ in ihf World War Zeppelin raids, and experiments since the war have convinced most military men that the ; dirigible is too clumsy—and makes too good a target.

He is uneasily aware that his po- •; — -••si lion here is utterly withoul precedent. Until now, only Charlie Chaplin ever bad the authority—or the audacity, either—to try to produce, wii'e. cast, direct and play a leading role in a picture. But Chaplin had a lot of experience. The 25-year-old Welles came here about a month ago an absolute stranger to the myriad; complications of the movies. According to all the rules, he hasn't got a chance. That's why the smug I Hollywood hierarchy, with its pat- j terncd plots and ponderous, factory L o'.cthods of production, is watching < i him with alarm. And for the same | rcti>on, all the real creators in town wliosi- efforts and dreams are squelched by executive interference are roi>t- ing for "Heart of Darkness" to he a .s.nash piece of entertainment. "I vc known for a long time that Id '•nine out hero eventually." Welles .-aid. "Four years ago. after I put 1:11 'Macbeth.' I began talking with slii'licis. But I bad to have full au- thci kcd ili'i, en- thorily—nobody telling me what to do; no story conferences with producers, who Mimehow sec'in to regard ihem- -•elves as endowed by God to make decisions.

Thai agreement was made a year ago. and Welles fiidn't have a story in mind at the Im.e. Recently the studio wanted him to play "The Hunchback of Notre Diiir.e."

"What happens from now on is entirely up to me." Welles admitted. "Nobody can read my script; nobody can cut my picture. They can't even come to -see the rushes. "I'm scared, hut not. as seared as I was. Because I find that although nobody is trying to boss me. everyone is j trying to help me. The theater is full i of co'mplacement men who believe the j artistic and technical millennium has | been reached. But pictures are a young I business and most of its people are not yet bored or spoiled. "Almost every evening I've been seeing three or four hours of selected pictures, from silents to the newest ^pict. to study fiim technique. A director, cameiaman orctittcr goes into the projection room with me and they ! explain different phases of produc- ! tinn. Most of 'em have theories of their own. ideas they'd like to try, and ] you ought to see their eyes light up \ when they talk.

"I figured Hollywood was one i place in the world where it wouldn't j be noticed," he said, "because I knew i bat players often went around in whiskers and long hair. But I can't get by with it. People seem to think it's an affection or an insulting gesture, or something: they attack 'me in reitaurants and hoot at me on trc streets." Besides himself.
