Boys in Uniform Want Girl to Be Good Listener By ALICIA HART NEA Staff Writer Bonila Granville ot the movies offers H good cue to girls who wish lo skip Die so-called awkward age. Bonila suggests simply: be your aye; do not try lo appear younger or older than you are. A Rirl of 13 may feel thai, physically, she looks mature enough In pretend she's 1G or 18. But even though she's bright, quickminded, she simply will nol have the judgment, the personality, of 18. Therefore if she starts dressing and trying to talk like 18, she is bound 'to come a croppci—il takes a pro- fessional nctrcss to carry off that kind of a pose. •lust as obvious a pretender is Ihe 'teen-ager who, probably at her doling mother's suggestion, wears the baby-doll clothes and has the helpless, dependent manner of a child. A 'teen-ager is neither a woman nor a child. The notion that she must be one or the'other is out of dale.Shops and cosmetics houses fortunately caler nowadays to her. She is. in their eyes, a type different from both the others. Take advantage of that: don't apologize for your age, and you'll wonder what ever made you think Ihe age was "awkward." Marine Flying Circus Shoots Down 72 Japanese Aircraft MRS, MOORE: USO leader. By ALICIA HART NEA Staff Writer You modern charmers, who want lo bo popular with the boy& in uniform, would do well to follow the old-fashioned rule: bo u good listener. So says Mrs. Maurice T. Moore-, leader of a half million young women volunteer hostesses in USO clubs and units, who has found that faithful followers of this rule never run the risk of being wall flowers. The girl who not only listens but looks interested in what her partner has to say, finds plenty of young men wauling to cut in on her all evening long. "Thai doesn't moan a girl has to be perenially stricken speechless," Mrs. Moore wants il understood. "Bul knowing how to listen intelligently and keep Ihe conver- ^salion going, will make her much ."more popular than trying to com- ^mand and force the conversation." Romance Rationed Seymour, Conn. — An 84-year old Jfarmer admitted to the ration |board that he had used the gaso- pine allowed for his tractor on his £.car instead. Asked why, he refplicd: "To go to see my girl ffricnd." Cautioned by the surprised gboard, the Octogenarian quickly suggested a way to eliminate Ihose Pleasure Irips. "How about extra gas for a rr Aeymoon?" he asked, i.IiplMqtanUy,".i.h;eAboard said no. (The following story was written by United Stales Marine Corps combat correspondents.) Distributed by The Associated P^ess Somewhere in the South Pacific, March 26 (Delayed) — Vivid descriptions of combat flighls of three heroes of Captain Joseph J. Foss Marine "Flying Circus," which downed 72 Jap planes in nine weeks in the Solomons area were told today. Captain Gregory E. Locsch, 23, a wing leader of the circus, who is credited with bagging eight enemy planes, was shol down and crashed into the sea on his first flight. "The day aflor we arrived on Guadalcanal we wenl righl into combat," Locch, a native of Mon- Irose, Colo., related. "We were flying al 20,000 feel over Tulagi when I got a dive bomber. "As he was falling, a Zero got on my mil. He ruined me before I knew he was (here. He shot my plane full of holes, coming in so fast I couldn't do a thing. The oil coolers on both sides of the Gruman Wildcat, were knocked off and a tiny piece of shrapnel wenl into my leg. "I knew my plane was knocked out and I dove straight down. I was his mercy if he had kelp after me, but ho pulled away and let me fall. I crashed on Ihe water about five miles from Henderson field. "1 am nol a good swimmer but I swam and paddled like Hell until I got within 50 yards of the shore. Then I began to tiro out. That last 50 yards seemed like 50 miles. "Not knowing whether I was in Jap territory, or not, I ran full speed down the beach in my bare feet. Later, I learned lhat two Jap patrols had been in Ihe area jusl before I landed. I ran lo Ihe front lines and as I shove into sight I was scared, for I could see Marines running for their rifle and machine guns. "I waved my hands and arms like a crazy windmill — they pused jusl long enough to recognize me as one of their own — and in a minute they had helped me into their lines. They took me to Sick Bay where I got a rubdown, sonic rest, new clothes and within a few days I was back on duty." "My firsl hit was a bomber which burned and fell inlo Ihe Guadalcanal mountains," Firsl LI. William B. Freeman, a pilot in the Circus recalled during a stopover on his way to his home town of Bonham, Tex. Freeman's bomber - hit was the firsl enemy plane credited to the circus. He has been awarded Ihe Dislinguishd Flying Cross. "I was never shol down, bul I had the Hell knocked out my Grumman. My score was six: The bomber and five Zeros," he said. Lt. Freeman began flying in June, 1941, after attending Texas A. and M. and pulling in a year as a highway construction engineer. First Lieutenant Thomas W. Furlow of Ogdcn, Ark., who bagged three enemy planes with the circus, related today how he and Lt. Oscar Bate of Essex Falls, N. J., tossed, a coin to decide vvWcb should g6t credit for down- ing a Zero. "While searching for LI. Colonel Harold Bauer of San Diego. Calif., who had been shol down Ihe night before — I think it was Nov. 14— our flight came upon two Japanese reconnaissance planes," he said. "They were float planes and float pilots know their besl proleclion is lo gel right down next to the water so fighters can't get a run on them. "Captain Foss went after" one plane and got il. I was firing on the tail of the other when Lt. Bate joined me and we both fired like Hell at the same plane. Suddenly i lexplodcd and fell. II was listed as an official 'kill' because of the witnesses who saw it, bul lhat did not decide exactly who should bo credited with it. We tossed and he won." Furlow also related how Second Lt. Cecil J. Doyle of Marshall, Minn., lisled as missing, crashed inlo Ihe ocean. He recalled that a ('light, ran inlo a number of Jap floal bi-planes ICO miles oul al sea in (he Solomons group. "The floal planes immediately got down right over the water. Lt. Doyle wenl after one. The float planes can quickly gain altliude without doing what we term 'squashing.'.By that I mean thai a fighter plane, due lo ils wing loading, has a decided tendency to 'squash' downward with its tail before it starts to gain altitude," he said. Lt. Dole's plane, traveling at a terrific clip low over the water, "squashed" as he pursued the float plane and his Wildcat crashed in the ocean, Furlow added Captain Foss, ot Sioux Falls, S. D., commander of the Circus, is credited with knocking down 26 planes to equal Captain Eddie Rickenbacker's all - time American record. (.The accounts were written by Sergeant Edward L. White of Washington, D. C., and Sergeant Theodore C. Link of St. Louis, Mo., Marine Corps Combat correspondents.) Shuffield Named Medical Group Chief Little Rock, April 21 —UP)— Dr. Joe F.
