Robison Is at Goodfellow Field GC'ODFELLOW FIELD, San Angelo, Texas—Having completed the first step of his training as a pilot in the fighting Army Air Corps, Aviation Cadet Frank Bryant Robison of Route 4, Hope, Ark., has arrived at this basic flying school to begin the intermediate phase of his flight instruction. From Goodfellow, Cadet Robison will go on to an advanced school to specialize in pursuit, bombardment, or observation flying, and win the coveted wings and bars of a flying lieutenant in the Army Air Corps. Cadet Robison is the son of Mr. Garland B. Robison, of Route 4, Hope, Ark. He received his primary flight training at Cimarron Field, Oklahoma City, Okla. 600 Killed in (Continued From Page One) was learned. Since the U. S. State Department has borne the brunt of representing the Allied cause at Vichy this was regarded as highly significant. It was argued here that the attack on objectives so near Paris would not have been ordered unless the Allies were ready to risk a German propaganda campaign seeking to turn the French against the Allies with stories of destruction in the working class districts and to historic landmarks. The sugar content of maple sap varies with the season— from 8 to 40 gallons being required for one gallon of syrup. Dad and Daughter Volunteers for Nurses Needed Ages 18 to 50, With High School Education Dr. J. G. Martindale, local Chief of Emergency Service and First Aid Chairman of the Red Cross, issues the following statement in order to further acquaint the public with this phase of the defense program. "To relieve the shortage of nursing service in civilian hospitals the American Red Cross and the Medical Division of the Office of Civilian Defense have combined to organize the Volunteer Nurse's Aid Corps. This is perhaps the biggest and most .useful role of women in Civilian Defense. "If a local disaster comes, the nurse's aide would be in the front line of action, as one or more nurse's aides will be in each squad of the medical emergency units, in accordance with the plan laid down by the Medical Division of the Office of Civilian Defense. "Although the volunteer cannot replace the nurse, there are many tasks she may safely perform, after taking this defense course and under the supervision of a nurse. She may help with equipment and supplies, give baths and shampoos, prepare patients for meals, make beds, feed helpless ones, arrange flowers, help patients to and from X-ray or other treatment rooms. These are only a few of the many things she may do and thus relieve the nurse for those tasks that require professional training. "The nurse's aide may be anywhere from 18 to 50 years old, must have a high school education, must be physically able, mentally flexible, and willing to sacrifice leisure. She must agree to give at least 150 hours of service each year to maintain her membership in the corps. During the first year the 150 hours must be spent in a hospital. where the chorus modestly (and. of course, practically) sheds a variety of noncssential clothing when national defense calls for silks and satins. The Martinique show builds up to a unique finale, in which the chorus girls roam through th eaudience selling defense stamps. They do about ?2500-a-week business. Selling defense stamps, or offering them as change, it is common nnd popular practice. Highest single sale reported to date was at El Morocco, where one customer peeled off enough bills to purchase a 5500 bond. But the show world's efforls aren't solely directed toward civilians. Starting early next month the American Theater Wing is opening a Stage Door Canteen for service men. Through the cooperation of every organization in stage, screen and radio, the Canteen will offer men in uniform refreshments, dancing and entertainment- free—every night from 5 to midnight. Broadway has signed for the duration. ••-••^•••MMHjU Bowen Hits Enemy Aliens Chamber Secretary Addresses KiwanisClub Striking out against nlicn enemies sabo eurs, management who demand exorbitant prices to manufacture war materials, and labor who strike for higher wages nnd so called better working conditions on defense projects, R. p. Bowen, Secretary of the Hope Chamber of Commerce, said Tuesday that to win this war was the most important thing in the world. Speaking to the Hope Kiwanis Club m their noonday luncheon at Hotel Henry on "Eye Sores," Mr. Bowen Minted out that eye sores in America are more Hum a few unsightly tin cans uncut weeds or dilapidated luildmgs. "The Kiealcsl eye sore in America re those alien enemies, saboteurs, nanufaetures who demand an exor- ntant price to produce war material. abor who strikes for higher wages or better working conditions on de- ense programs, those who spread false umors, criticize the conduct of " var. harass tin Income Tax Aids Ammunition Bill American Armed Force Spend $231 Worth a Second By NEA Service In every single second of the war from now on until June 30, the United States Navy estimates it will expend co-n :~ -.- ... 52.'!! in ammunition, or just about what ten small income taxpayers will band over to Uncle Sam this year. For one year's active war operations, the United States Navy counts that the losses of airplanes may be as high as 100 per cent. This is not guoss work.

Daughter Mary wears the Auxiliary, •territorial Service uniform these davs Takes Patriotic Mote Sees Red, White, Blue in Night Spots of New York BY TOM WOLF NEA Service Staff Correspondent NKW YORK-The night spots in this show world capital will be glad to help you forget the Axis and any other troubles. But they aren't letting tiny one forget Uncle Sam. Each impresario has brought his show up to war-date in a different way, the only common denominator of these patriotic efforts being the singing of the Star Spangled Banner, which is universal. But even in this the techniques are as different as is the Stork Club (where the national anthem i:; sung with the greatest simplicity; from Leon and Eddie's (where, in a darkened room, a scot- light picks out Old Glory flying in an artificial breeze during the sine- ing.; As a general rule, the more out-of- towners in the clubs clientele, (he more fervent the patriotic note. The ice show at the Hotel New Yorker, playing largely to transients, goes all- out in its military motif. The grand finale finds (he skaters dressed as an aviator, a Red Cross nurse, a drum major and even Uncle Sam. "Swing Out to Victory" At the other end of the scale of subtlety are such -strongholds of the sophisticates as Cafe Society, where dusky songstress Haxel Scott weaves the clipped notes of Army bugle calls into her swing version of Li.s/t'.s classic "second Hungarian Rhapsody." In butween these two extremes come the majority of the .shows, combining the subtle with the obvious At Copacabnua, cufc- society's current glitter spot, the show builds up to a ••Swing Out in Victory" finale, but costumes are restrained—n vivid while Jersey dress, contrasted by long gloves, 'He red, one blue.

The contemplated ...._ ture of ammunition and attrition of airplanes, shows that the navy expects to do a tremendous lot of offensive warfare. The bill contained, in addition to previous amounts for naval aircraft the sums of 54,176,066,000 for more aircraft, which is supposed to bring production of naval aircraft this year up to 18.000. Rear Admiral J. H. Towers, Chief of Hi, — mose in command with oolish demands, predict defeat, dodge ax payment or in any way hamper the effort to win the war," the speaker said. Showing that ignorance is an eye sore in Arkansas, Mr. Bowen said more money is spent for crime or even tobacco in Arkansas than for education. He called for the public to arise and eradicate ginorance in this state by demanding hi.qher paid teachers and better equipment for the schools. Pointing out that "eye sores" may be generally classified under three heads—Metal, Moral, and Physical," the ^speaker went on (o say. "The mental eye sore is ignorance. The moral eye sore is not necessarily unkopt gardens, uncut weeds or things offensive to the eye, but those houses which deal in questionable practices or promote habits that are injurious to health and morals. Our moral Code is based upon the teaching.'; of the Christian Religion. Nations' which have turned their backs upon this teaching are today wallowing in the filth of moral degeneracy and the Bureau of Aeronautics, warned the committee that the loss (officially, "attrition"; of aircraft would be high, perhaps 10 Oper cent a year. "Attrition" means chiefly, if course, actual loss in battles. It also means loss by accident and just plain wearing out. / In connection with expenditures for ammunition. Rear Admiral W. H. P. Blandy, Chief of the Bureau of Ordnance, said to the committee: "Our ammunition expenditure estimates, of course, are not based upon our own war experience, because we haven't had enough yet. They have been checked, however, with British war experience and allowances made for the type and number of enemy ships and planes we will have to fight, compared with their opponents to date. I might mention that one of the reasons we arc putting it high is that we must distribute this ammunition as bases and in ships all over the world and we have contemplated a certain percentage of loss in shipment, through sinking of cargo ships." Admiral Blandy said this involved the major part of 56,000,000,000. The Federal fiscal year ends June 30 next. Taking only half of the above sum— •53,000,000,000—means that tho cost of ammunition expended blown up wili average per month, $600,000,000 for the remaining five months of the fiscal year. This means about 520,000 000 per day, 5833,333 per hour, or 513,888 , every minute night and clay. London Makes Merry at Night Pubs, Food Clubs, Gaming Houses Flourishing By PAUL MANNING NKA Service Staff Correspondent LONDON -Blil/.-frce London on a bhicked-out winter night takes its fun where it finds it. As surprised by the absence of air raids as a small boy who expected another whipping and got a bag of candy instead, the British capital is (.•aught up in a nocturnal swirl of itainbling, vice, two-timin, spying, pleasure and tragedy. When darkness comes.

There's still life, though, up along iccadilly. If it is Saturday niglii, few thousand soldiers and airmen, ind their girls will move along in a; weeping .stream, keeping always to' he sidewalks, because pedcstraiii accidents in the slreet still remain high. Into Lyons Corner House, or a pub, they wander before catching tho last movie at one of eight or ten most popular theaters. Maybe they've already been to the pictures, and then they join the stream but break away cjiiiekly and step down into Brasserie Universalle, which U noisy, smoke- filled and crowded, but the beer and food is inexpensive and there is a loud, brassy band dressed in South American costumes.
