Reporter Finds There's Nothing To It By DAVID-A, STKIN NEA Slaff Corresponded! ST. LOUIS, Nov. 1C.—tf anyone ells you that you can take-off and hiid a plane ail by yourself with- mt any previous flying experience, ipllfVe him, I know, because I've ust done it, without ever having jeeil nl Ihc controls of a plane bc- ore. When I climbed Into the llltlc fro-scalei', (lie Instructor simply ;ald, "Take over." He pointed out i red-knobbed throttle. To gain peed, hi said. I should pull the hrottle forward, (hen simply rc- 'crsc the process lo sloiv "down. That's all the Instruction I was given before I tnsied the craft- out o the runway, The plane had an ordinary slecr- ii(f wheel. When I h« ( | gained n peed of about 50 miles nn hour, 1 vas-lold simply to pull the wheel oward me. We rose skyward, To urn right or left, I turned Ihc wheel Jiul as I would In nn niilo- nobile. To land, I simply slowed lown, pushed the wheel forward, and the tricycle landing gear took care of Hie rest. I had flown this ircoupo without the Instructor hnv- ug so much as touched the con- 1-ols. Alter.such n flight, you won't be full-fledged pilot, of course. He- ore you cnn solo, CAA rules require U, least eight hours or dual In- Iriictlon., But once you have ex- jcricnccd the thrill of lifting a fly- tig flivver into the air and brlng- ng her down safely, you'll have « low and exciting impression of the wsslbilities of postwar private fly-1 " Many times its own wci'hl water Is absorbed by the mat 0 , leaves and moss that covers the ground in a forest. .ci i w f.iu unit If you suffer from rheumatic pain or muscular aches, buy C-2223 today rCal "-"""'ing help. 60c$f & - ep. c$ : Use only as directed, t'irst bo tie purchase price is refunded If >QU are not satisfied.

Already Spanish Is being taught p • students In (he. third grade In lenrly 30 Texns elementary nubile chools. nnd there arc mo'rc than 5,000 members of Pan-American J'oruins In Ihe state where prob- ems of Texas nnd Mexican nationals arc discussed at regular neetihgs. ' Newest innovation in the Good Neighbor policy Is the revamping of the teaching of Spanish in 7'cxas liigh schools. ; Under direction of Miss Myrtle Tanner^ director ol •Inter-Americail education in the stntc department of education, n new course of study Is being put Into final form for introduction In schools at beginning of the 1345 full term. "So many students study the required number of years on Spanish' and then when completed, the student is unable to speak the Inn- gunge," Miss Tanner snld. "We are going to try to eliminate that full- ing by starting on the imaginative Journey from the student's home. After obtaining basic knowledge of Spanish words \ised In the home, family nnd market place (lie mythical trip W ill begin." • Along the route, the conventional stopovers will be made, where IM student will acquire hew words for his Spanish vocabulary. The first year course of study will end it Mexico City, the second year beginning there and progressing into Centra] my Soulh America ami to Caribbean Islands. Customs, folklore, songs nnd dances will be studied nnd 'learned. Special recorded lessons will sup- pJeiBcnt the course to aid pronunciation. Third and fourth year Spanish classes will be devoted largely to steel nnd oil, (ho popular nlrplanc Is sure to Imve (nr-ivnclilng ef- lects. Air htgllways will hnvc to l)c Ijulll, complete with landing strips, air service slnllons, hangar facilities, and "ncrotcls" where yoil cnn find n place lo sleep nnd a bite lo oat.

Moreover, flying conditions are not all they should be yet. There must be more airfields, better nav- IfiHtlon iiids, Improved .servicing facilities, low-cost hangars. Air enthusiasts point out that private Hying Is now sit IliC'samc singe of development as (ho'automobile in the iniuicdinlG posl-Wprlcl Win- I dnys. "they foresee devblopincnt of air highways and flying facilities following the same pattern that marked the growth of the aiitomo- livc industry. Manufacturers of private planes Imve concentrated their efforts on safely, and emphasize splnproof factors, ciisc of control, and stability. They point'out that town min-klngs, nil-parks, and navigation aids should make it possible for anyone at Uic controls of a plane to fly safely after passing a pimple course In rules of the air and map rending. Surveys have Indicated a vast future market for private planes, Price Is H major factor. The public wants a practical, snfc, Inexpensive plane. Two major reasons given by peojile research, blending more Into the literary nnd cultural phases of the Spanish-speaking people. • Many Texas educators are lending their assistance toward limug- urntlug the course, which also -has been boosted by aid from the Coor- riinnloi- of Intcr-Aiiierlcnii Amirs.

Ensc of land- Ing and parking, ease of operation, safety, utility, and economy nre given as rcnuons for (tils preference. Surveys show that CO per cent of prospective buyers wnni planes for recreation, nnd only 35 per cent want planes for business, Including commuting. A vast majority expect lo pay at least $1,500 for a "coupe", and $2,000 for a four-passenger "sedan." incidentally, nlrcraftcrs' sci- nn important market,fpr '•llmou- slnc" type cabin planes, with room for nl leMt six pflttcngers and a pilot, "chauffeur." The four-place family sedan .type of plane''lias been given preference by most prospective buyers. One- of tlie most disputed fnctors In post-war aviation forecasts Is tho disposition of wnr-lrnlried airmen toward private flying.

However, she early became familiar with the world of make-be- lieve, bolli backstage and a's a member of the audience. The first role In which she saw her famous mother was. tlml of "Camtllc." The first role in which she saw her uncle, John Barrymore, was "Peter Ib- belson." Het* uncle John also took her to see Ihc motion picture, "Dr. Jekyll and Mr, Hyde," In which he played the tlllc roles. Accompanying them were her two hr6thers imd all Ihree of them would shudder at the behavior of Die horrible Mr. Hyde on the screen and then turn and look at their handsome uncle sitting beside them, thoroughly Unconvinced that they were one and the same man. And John Barrymore, who whs visiting them had lo tell thein some quiet lltlle stories lo put them iistijep. Miss Colt relates many of the interesting and amusing incidents tiiat have happened to her and lells ff.'jcinatlng story will! her lecture. She will illustrate various points of llit' story wi'h a few songs from her repertoire.
