S. Army aviation cadets are Johnny Berardino and Martin Chaves. Berardino was the brilliant shortstop of the St. Louis Browns. He played his college baseball at Southern California. Chaves, a gtiard, started 1942 by captaining an underdog Oregon State football tea mto a transplanted Rose Bowl victory over Duke in Duhram. Today the two are undergoing basic training at Williams Field near here. It's easy to see why flying would appeal to the two young men. The romantic, devil-may-care sort of life is made to order for athletes. To date they have found little gla- mor, however, and they're too busy for devil-may-care. Army aviation cadets are drilling these days—marching, close order drill and routine for six hours a day at reception or replacement centers. For five weeks prior to assignment to primary training centers, they are drilled, sent to ground school, vaccinated and generally prepared to be officers and gentlemen. Eat With One Arm From Plate Properly Dressed Uncle Sam intends to make well- rounded men of aviation cadets, judging by the report of an Arizona boy assigned to a replacement center. From his description, cadets are due for a rigid training program. "You have to learn to speak, eat, walk and sleep all over again—in the West Point way," explains the trainee. "It will be nice to be an officer so I can use a chair again to sit in while I eat. "Right now it amounts to squatting at attention, using the chair as a prop. We use only the front four inches and use only one arm during the process of eating, the other being held stiffly down at your side— not daintily draped across your lap. "And the plate! Well, its' no longer a plate. It's a clock. When you're eating, the knife is parallel to the edge of the table, edge toward the eater, at 12 o'clock fashion. Your glass is also at 12, cup at 1 o'clock, and bowl, if any, at 3. "When you're through eating, the knife, for kand spoon are placed side by side on a line from 4 to 10 o'clock, with the edge of the knife again toward the eater, and the napkin over a 9. The plate then is properly 'dressed.'

When you speak to an upperclassman you begin with a 'sir' and end with a 'sir.' "When he asks your name, the reply is: 'Sir, new aviation cadet, Jones, J. J., sir'—nothing else. When he asks for your serial number, you'd better know it, and zeros are zeros, not 'ohs.'

Food for Defense The United States is at war! To lave a strong nation and a victorious nation we must have a healthy nation. A strong body and an alert mind are important to all of us behind the lines who are busy in many different fields helping to win the war. At the same time war tapes and the increased cost of living means that economy is of vital importance to the home and the nation. How can we have the best health possible when there is less money to spend for food? Follow the rules of good nutrition —and eat the following foods every day: 1. Milk—at, least a pint for everyone, more for children—or cheese, or evaporated or dried milk. 2. Oranges, tomatoes, grapefruit, or raw cabbage—at least one of these. 3. Vegetables — green, leafy, and yellow—one big helping or more, some raw, some cooked. 4. Potatoes and apples—and other vegetables and fruits. 5. Loin meat, poultry, or fish—or sometimes dried beans or peas. Eggs—at least 3 or 4 a week. Bread and cereal—whole grain products or enriched bread and flour 8. Fats, sweets, and seasonings as you like them. Do your part in the national nu- .rition program by working with your ocal nutrition committee.

Normandie Burns and Sinks Former French Ship Capsizes After New York Fire NEW YORK —(/P)— The United States Navy's largest auxiliary, the 80,000-ton former French liner Normandie, lay capsized, fire-ravaged and water-logged at her icy Hudson diver pier at New York Tuesday as the result of an industrial accident as destructive as the work of a bomber squadron. Renamed the Lafayette after her siezure by the United States last December, the 60-million-dollar vessel toppled to port at 2:45 a. m. (EWT) under pressure of the incoming tide in the dramatic sequel to a fire set off by sparks from a welding torch. Shifting of tons of water used to control the flames Monday put the ship off balance. All personnel was ordered off after a 21-dcgree list developed. Of the 2,000 workmen preparing the vessel for war duty when the fire broke out one was killed and 220 were injured.

This is a Newspaper It contains advertisements. Advertisements are vehicles that carry messages. THESE MESSAGES SELL THINGS. They can sell PRODUCTS-like pants. They can sell SERVICES—like pants pressing. They can sell IDEAS— like styles. Newspaper ads can sell products because they can show them with pictures, explain their merits and quote their prices with words, and tell the members of the local community where the"products can be bought. Newspaper ads can sell services by showing what they are,-who renders them, where they can be obtained and how much they cost. When it comes to selling Ideas, newspaper advertisements have unlimited uses. By economical repetition— .., they have taught people to brush their teeth, ... they have inspired people to support many charities. ... they have made a laughing stock of the idea, "The automobile will never replace the horse" THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A BETTER WAY INVENTED TO MAKE IDEAS STICK THAN THE POWER OF THE PRINTED WORD. * * * When business is better in this town everybody benefits. When everybody in the town knows what's going on all over the world, each man can tell better how to vote, what to buy and how to protect himself. Read these ads each week. Tell your friends to read them. They tell you what an important part your newspaper has in helping you to know what's going on, so you can decide what you personally are going to do about it all.
