Sci'iTdiry of War (U'rillen fur NKA Service, Inc.) WASHINGTON. The problems of the air force orrani/ation io- day are vastly more complex than those of the day, 30 years ago, ^hcn the liist plane was bought for the arm}'. Tlie mission of (lie army air corps in (he fulfillment of the present augmentation, program is threefold. It must, with the cooperation of the aeronautical Industry nnd the interested services of (lie nrmy. insure production of tlie planes and auxiliary ctpilp- inenl according to the desired schedule; it must provide the increased base facilities; and it must prrame and (lain pilots and mechanics to operate and maintain tho planes. Congress has recognized our re- [UiiroincnU of a total of 40U5 officers and approximately 43.000 enlisted men and has made available $3,528,300 for inUifii (raining of pilots In certain civilian schools during tlie period July 1, 1933- Jan. 1, 1941. The War Department decided to use civilian schools for primary training of pilots in order lo increase the number of graduate pilots, heretofore educated exclusively at. air corps training centers at Randolph nnd Kelly Fields. AIM AT 21CO PILOTS Under Ihc present plan, graduates of the- civilian schools will .be sent to tlie two army centers lo complete their basic training and to receive their advanced combat training. H is estimated that approximately 2100 pilots Mill lie trained and become available for commission either In officers' reserve cor|)s or in the regular army. The following civilian sciK.ols arc being utilized for the training of pilots: Spartan School of Aeronautics, Tulsa, Okla. Siinta Maria .Schnnl of Flyinj, Santa Maria, Calif.

It got started too soon—and it stopped too soon; It may yet survive both handicaps, but (hey don't make the going any easier. As soon as the former boss of WPA was. made secretary of commerce, the word went round that tills was a build-up for the presidential nomination. This made him a natural target for his foes, willi which lie is amply equipped, and tlie heat, on. Then, just as he was getting set- lied in his new office, lie fell ill, and was away from his desk for about 10 weeks. Both the build-up and the secretaryship bogged down as a result. Fully recovered, Secretary Hopkins is driving ahead now. He is the New Deal's chief advocate of "business appeasement' 1 (lie hates the cxpre.%sion).
