But previous congressional testimony by members of the Aeronautical Chamber of Commerce suggests a logical way toward practical operation. They would have air power research carried out for the Army and Navy by pi i vale aviation industry. And there are many aigunients to support their stand. The industry already has plants, equipment, and trained personnel; It has need to keep as. much of all these as possible on the job in peacetime. For, unlike such industries as auto mami- f acturirig, • airplane builders cannot le convert in peacetime., .'They can onlj shrink— and Uva.^less shrinkage, the better for all concerned. These same facilities would likely. make it possible to' carry on the ic- acrrch program in private industry with greater economy. If competition is still operating normally after the war, it should provide the incentive' to turn out the best possible product for the least '"possible cost, even when the com, petitors are working for the Army and Navy. And there are : Historical reasons to support the industry's stand. Most epochal military inventions have been the work of civilians, not professional soldiers. That is certainly true of aviation, and it ought to be equally true of developments in jet-propelled, radio- con'.rciled flight. The last war was followed by a decade of neglect -and bad planning from which our military aviation had net recoxered at the time of Pearl Harbor. This time we must be ready to resume military production almost at a moment's notice, and to turn out the lest aircraft in the world for the wcild's best flyers. SO THEY'SAY.

I'd declared that the whole works would icak at Hie first sign of rain, and she'd maintained that it would be ucrfectly all right.

As the last strains ol the tone poem died down. I could hear the cloller of dishes in Ihe kitchen. "Mickey,'.' I called, "why don't you quil making that racket and come and entertain Papa?"
