Experiment! on that have been In progress at the army air corps laboratory at Wright Field, Dayton, O. Equipped American p u r s u i t planes with "five times" as many cannon as they now carry. One standard pursuit planes production manufacturer in the United States carries a single cannon, another manufactured for Britain, two. Jouett asserted that the Germans, now stopping production to retool on new models of bombers and fighters, "are nowhere near up to their potential production capacity.' Of the aircraft factory labor situation, he forecast the employment of a half million persons in the next few months, adding, "strikes by labor, more than any other factor, can disrupt the aircraft production program so seriously as to render our effective aid in this war too little and too late." Monte Proser won't object to this story about Monte Proser being illustrated with a big picture of beaute ous Yyette, because Monte used to be a, press agent, and understands how those things work.

(Serves 10,500) Take enough room for a six- day bicycle race or a rodeo or a hockey game or a three-ring circus. Roll out a dance floor. Sprinkle with a 110-foot waterfall and several 70-foot giant palmettos,. Add three "name" bands and let- them sizzle. This is the $100,000 dish ;which Monte Proser is just about to serve up as a 6-cent special in Madison Square Garden for three months this summer. By so doing the short, dark-haired, English- born impresario, now in his middle 30's, walks away with America's night club crown. The dance hall situation in New York has been definitely inferior to that of any small town for years," he explains. "We are far behind the rest of the country in this respect. Even the suburban honky- tonks have it all over the so-called ·Gay White Way' in what they offer. "Because New York space is at a premium, a young man can't hear a good dance band in New York unless he wants to blow at least $5. To meet that situation, we're building what I hope will be the most beautiful and elaborate popular-priced dance pavilion of all time." FROM HOBO TO IMPRESARIO Glowing descriptions like this come naturally to Mr. Proser. Before entering the management end of the night club business he was an after-dark press agent. Born near Liverpool, Proser came to America as a refugee from the first World War, A one-time hobo, later a guide in Yellowstone Park, then a Western Union messenger who sold himself into a job as office boy when he delivered a telegram to former President Hoover, he drifted into the Broadway world by chance. When he was 16, he walked into the station with a dollar in his pocket and asked how far he could get. He landed at Freeport, L. I., which was then a vacation center for show people. Within two years he was press-agenting for vaudeville acts, which soon led to space- grabbing for night -spots. In 1934 he got the urge to swap positions, went to Hollywood and opened his own club. "I wanted to do something different," he says, "and I remembered that in New York lots of the 'right people' were going to Havana and coming back excited about tropical rhythms. I also remembered a band in a New York vaudeville act- one of the first tropical rhythm bands in the U. S. No one knew what it was all about, except that it was wonderful. "So I came to the conclusion that Americans could be sold on South American atmosphere and rhythm. That's the story behind La Conga--my first night club." FIRST TO SELL LATIN ATMOSPHERE The Latin-American formula was a successful one. From it developed New York's Beachcomber and the famous Proser "only-two-to-a-customer' 'drink--the Zombie,-Beachcombers in the "Proser circuit today take in Boston, Providence and Miami Beach in addition to Manhattan. In New York, Proser also under-writes the very successful Copacabana. Successful as he has been hi the pasfc he still faces his biggest test in the gigantic Madison Square Garden dance hall project If it is a hit, he will take it apart and reassemble it in many cities throughout the country. But Monte Proser himself is the first to admit that "it will either be the biggest success New York has seen for many .a day--or the biggest flop." AIR CONFERENCE TO CHAR CONVOY QUESTION SEEN Q Development of H u g e Bombers Across Atlantic Would Help LOUISVILLE, Kjr., June A spokesman for the American Aircraft industry today proposed that long-range, four-engine bombers deployed across the Atlantic on an sir highway 2w miles wide "can help to solve the convoy problem." In an address prepared for delivery before the annual convention of the National Aeronautic Association, John H. Jouett, of Washington, D. C, president of tAe Aeronautical Chamber of Commerce, said "sent out from bases on 1hi§ side of the Atlantic, departing on something like every-hour-on- the-hour schedules, they can carry enough heavy bombs to sink large ships. PILE MISERY Tlie itching and sting of piles can often be relieved by antiseptic SAJJ- CUEA Ointment. You have the cam* opportunity as many others who have been relieved of these great discomforts. Antiseptic SAH- CU»A is also a splendid soothing application for minor sores, burns, cuts and skin irritations. 35c and 60c at drug stores.

"lliey can patrol a zig-zag course qyer a convoy route, say 200 miles wide, all the way to England with a fair chance of spotting and destroying surface or sub-surface raiders that might be lurking within striking distance of the supply ships in a convoy." Whether ofttcial Washington or the British government actually contemplated any such move Jouett did not say, but he emphasized that the current production objective of the Roosevelt administration was 500 heavy bombers a month. His address opened four days of discussions by more than 1,000 leaders in American aviation. Jouett said American air research engineers were working toward: Making airplanes faster by shooting engine exhaust gases through jets to obtain a "rocket propulsion" effect.
