PAGE EIGHT BLYTHEVJLU3, (AKK.) COUKiKK 'Airbees' Set To Join U.S. Air Force Combat Unit To Do Work of Navy Seabees WASHINGTON, Sept. 1. (S>) _ .Something new Is being added to the Air Force—the "Alrbecs." That'i the nickname given the Air Force's proposed new combat ground troops by chairman Vinson (D-Oa) of the House Armed Services Committee. The Air Force would prefer to style them "aviation engineer bat- tal lions." All this came out in a report, Just made public, of closed com. oijttet hearings on a bill to authorize a »5,768,000,ooo military construction program. The measure was passed by the House and Is now pending in the Senate. The House committee spent the major portion of one session mulling over a. request for $39,314,000 to build up Camp Beale, Marysville, Calif., as the first training center for an Air Force fighting ground arm. Wliai'. Their JobT i The committee wanted to know what these new units ar» to do — what'i their job. Col. Howard E. Webster, of Continental Air Command, explained that "aviation engineers have as a mission the construction, maintenance and defense of air fields and air field installations overseas." Vinson remembered the wartime Navy's "Seabees"—men who fought their way ashore and then rebuilt the port^men who In civilian liie had been carpenters, engineers, electricians, brick maaoni, plasler- •rs. "So w* can get It In our mind exactly whit it (t£e proposed Air yorm arm) li, then it Is somewhat tike the seabees," Vinson said. He added: 'Tht« U the Alrbces?" "That U Rljht" "That ta right, sir," replied the colonel. He said the men would be borrowed from the Army Engineers and trained by the Air Force over- was. MaJ. Gen. PnU-ick W. Timber- like, Air Port* director of iiutilla- • tlont. Mid the engineers would be trained aj combat unit* to fight their way ashore in a hostile Inmt, •hd ' then ^construct airdromes. The men are not only trained to fight, but to meet Air Force needs. They are specialists in paving, Timberlake said. Early units have beta'proTiug their worth, rehabilitating the air fields in Korea, he added. WEATHER (Continued from Page 11 templating delaying school opening until Sept. TO. A decision is expcct- •d Monday. Opening schools at Harrison si- ready has been delayed a week because of hot weather. Study In Contrasts Th« nation's weather map was a •tudy in contrasts today. While the Southern states, the Ohio Valley and the Central Atlantic Seaboard continued lo swel- l«r In temperatures around 100 degrees or higher, cool air had overspread the northern and cental itates. McAlejter, okla., and Presidio, Tex., had 108 yesterday. Agriculturists said the continued hot spell threatens heavy cotton crop damage in Mississippi and Louisiana. The cooler air meanwhile had spread Into Pennsylvania, Ohio, Northern Illinois and Indiana, and Into Missouri and Kansas. In Chicago, a summer's high of 92.3 was hit yesterday afternoon, but the thermometer then dipped more than 20 degrees in a few hours. Showers fell early-today in Missouri, Eastern Ohio, North and Western Pennsylvania, New York, and at several spots In the Northern plains. ill- CEASE-FIRE (Continued from Page I) Chun San, accused Kinncy of "u terior motives" and "lying." Kinney said, "I can see no polnl In continuing to discuss the matter further." No Evidence pound Kinney tolrf newsmen in Munsan the "bomb craters" he raw could have been caused by a planted ground blast or by explosives dropped from the air. He said there was no evidence to back up either possibility. Kinney led an investigating lentil into Kaesong to look Into charges made by the Reds oarlier In the day. Ke was accompanied by Marine Col. j. C. Murray, three Air Force experts, staff assistants and four newsmen. The investigation lasted tiiree hours and 50 min-ites.

But, there is something In the idea of a state worshipping which cannot be entirely cast aside, it must be made thoroughly spiritual and it must be completely separated from politica entanglement.';. It remains a witness to the fact that the state must not be allowed to become merely secular and materialistic Institution." Dr. Hough added: "Whenever the political usurps the place of the spiritual the church is taking the wrong way. Whenever the intellec- ual analysis takes the place of Christian experience and Chrlstiar action the church is moving upon false path." The Methodist have been meeting si;ice Tuesday. So far, their deliberations have focussed on theological interpretations of Wesleyar doctrine and preliminary discus ions looking toward closer unity of the world's several brands o Methodism.
