Dukes'Bill Day 'Ace'Both on Court And In Air; One of Pacific War Heroes I .- .'—... I' "" ^ "*' > IV ." -•''' ICitation Won't \Attegany High's Unbeaten Grid Potomac Staler T?«« T« F^.-.i-11-..A T^~.~ T^ R^>•HT/in/»>4/7 T/*ni'o7if PreDariiiff Eof Like the ojd saying, '"You,can't judge a book by its cover," neither can one .fairly pass Judgment on an'-athlete without first knowingj something about his past. Take the case'of Bill Day of the Cumberland Dukes basketball team. About the only thing: followers of the Dukes'know/about Bill is'that he is a pretty fair basketballer who formerly played ' with . Bucknell University. , • ... • Bill has been a resident of Cumberland less than six months and as a newcomer to the local sports scene is deserving of proper introduction. Not so many months, ago he was known simply as Major William C. Day, Jr., Red • Lion, 'Pat, of the U.S. Army Air Forces. And,-'Major Day, it so happens, is a World War n hero, being one of the first aces in the Pacific war. Bill, with 130 missions, to .his credit, piloted a. P-40 in the .early days of the war and had five Japanese aircraft to his credit ,at the same time Major Richard Bong, one of the war's best known.' Jap air slappers, had nine Nip planes in his book. • Finds It Easy To.Relax One big factor in Bill's success, both as a basketball player and as a war aviator, is his ability to relx. He can "unloose" himself and turn. into, a damp dish rag at a moment's notice. The former Army officer is-never tense before a game and .neither was he tense while taking-off on a' mission against the Japs. You see, he just couldn't afford to be because had he been tense, it would be impossible for him now to relate his many war experiences. Lieut. Day (that was his rating Bill Day . . . One of racifio war's first air aces. in the- early part of his flying career) zoomed through Pacific skies when things were really rough, UJS. airmen being outnumbered in almost every fight by a. five-to-one margin. But Bill today considers himself a lucky man, since he came out of the war with nary a scratch. In fact, his plane caught only five Jap bullets during those 130 missions and. 18 straight months of combat duty. He brought back three bullet holes one time a^d two on another occasion. Had Best Day Over New Guinea A veteran or almost five years, Day had his best day in 'the air over New Guinea when he brought down a Jap "Betty B.omber" and a Zero fighter plane. He and his buddies were outnumbered thrtie to '50 at the time. Day was also credited with two planes over Lea, five all told, and -has his name, in the records with five probables. Bill was one of Ice firs: ten American aces in the. Pacific and was featured in the ncwsreels, cameramen grinding out pictures for posterity ol this group at New Guinea early in 1943. When separated from the service in October, 1945, Major Day listed among hi.s many decorations the Distinguished Plying Cross with two clusters and the Air Medal with a like number of clusters. At the end of his tour of combat duty, Day was charged with the training of pilots for their baptism of fire. Overseas 27 months, he has more than 1,500 hours ol flying time to his credit and in addition to the P-40 which he regards as his favorite plane, he has piloted P-SBs, B-Hs, B-2Ss and B-25s. Starred at Gettysburg Five feet, 11 inches tail, Day is 28 years old and a chemical engineer at • the Kelly-Springfield Tire Company plant here. He is man-led and tho father of a small daughter. Before going into the Army, Bill attended Gettysburg College where he played basketball, football and track. 'Upon returning to civilian life, he enrolled at Bucknell from where he was graduated last June. Like almost every other combat veteran, Major Day wants to forget about the war, but it's easy to see how he could have been so cool under lire once you watch him cavort on the SS. Peter and Paul court in a tight ball game.
