They were Impressed by the first testa of the C-122 ax » faat carrier of heavy equipment in the war stamps which reachtd IhMr final pha.s« here this morning. And they see no reason way infantrymen couldn't be landed with the snme eiftclency. 'Inventor Dies in Curio Air plane Built at Home WARNING OBDEK IB the Chancery Court, Chleka- «awb« DMrict, MlwMppi Co«»tj, The ina.« jumps and .dropping ol heavy equipment by parachutes are daring the spectacular—but sometimes they are costly in both men and equipment even conditions. under ideal Lt. Gen. John. Hodge, commander of the maneuvers, told reporters he believes the C-122 assault aircraft 1 has "tremendous possibilities" for ' transporting both men and equipment Into battle. "We should do all we can to develop the assault landing craft," he fatrf. Air Force MaJ. Gen. W. R. Wolfinbarger, deputy maneuvers commander, said the assault craft have "great possi bill ties in eliminating th* mass pnrfttroop Jumps-" "And we should work toward this end," he added. This wouldn mean the end of the cocky and well-trained paratrooper entirely. For partroopers still would be needed to 'chute to the ground behind the enemy lines In small numbers to prepare crude landing strips and guide the planes in. "There will always be some situation where paratroop jumps are needed," Wollinbarger Raid, "but developing an assault landing craft would mean we could move the bulk of equipment and men by air." Army Changri Habits Elimination of mass paratroop jumps would be another sign that the Army i s changing fl&htlng habit* It used extensively In World War ii. Over the weekend it WHS learned that the famed Rangers are being broken up and assigned to Individual Infantry missions, There still will be Rangers, but they will b« trained and assigned as Individuals, not • at units, That marks the end of »n era (or the daredevil boys, this country's equivalent to the dashing British Commandos.

But to get back to the C-133, the •peedy assault alrcrnlt— • The big shtps were used to land Jeeps, howitzers, and other heavy equipment during the drops of 6,000 paratrooper* and their equipment In the past two days. All the ships landed safely on a makeshift land- Ing strip and the airborne infantrymen quickly got the equipment Into action. Some Equipment Smashed In the parachute drop of equipment, some was badly smashed. One paratrooper was killed and 26 others hospitalized with serious Injuries during the mass Jumps, Hundreds of onlookers watched in horror while 2D-yeai>old Salvador Camarena plunged 1,200 feet to his death. HLs parachute failed to open. 'Camarenn struggled to open his emergency chute, hut it did not open in time.

Thirteen other deaths during the games were attributed lo non- combat causes, Reviewing the exercise, General Hodge fold reporters the Army nnd Air Force had been able to settle • 11 their disputes amicably At she operational level. "There Ha« Been No Dispute" "At the operation level," he salrt. "the Army and Air Force have worked well together. There has been no dispute we hp.vrn't been able to settle very amicably." Hodge declined comment on the Army-Air Force high level disput? over the control and use of tadical air power. He said these disagreements "are above my level" and Involve policy matters on which he ctJiild not comment, Some top Army men believe the Air Force should concent rat* tar Meal air in close sup;>ort of groun troops as the Marines do. And they think Ihe operational control of the aircraft should be in the hands of the Army. The Air Force doe* not want to give up operational control of its planes nnd insists the problems of tactical air support should be handled by Joint control as It now Is being done. A ho, the Air Force insists close tactical support should mean hitting enemy targets far behind the front lines as well as giving the infantry help against enemy guns. tanks and troops.
