Before the outbreak of the war, Dickson, who has been credited with making the French conscious of professional athletics, operated the Palais de Sports in Paris. He returned to the United States four years ago. A native of Natchez, Miss., he served in Prance during the last war and received several decorations. Afterward he remained in Paris. Within a decade lie had become the most outstanding and colorful sports promotor in Europe. He featured Sonja Henie at his Sports Palace three years before she was known in America and had a hand in nearly every major prize-flghth staged in Europe, including the two bouts between Young Strib-ling and Primo Camera. MARRIED IN 1939 In 1939 Dickson and the former Miss Mastbaum, divorced wife of Elias Wolf. 2d. of this city, were married at Greenwich, Conn. A year later he announced the French government had taken over his Sports Palace and he settled down in his native Natchez to await the end of the war in Europe so he could return, and resume production of his sports shows. The debonair fight promotor, whose career has included wartime photography, the promotion of lion fighting and the creation of "bloodless bull fighting," became restless, however, and in 1941 joined the Army Air Force intelligence. He attended officer's training school at Miami, Fla., and the Army Air Forces Intelligence School, at Harrisburg. Six months ago he was sent overseas. Yesterday he was reported missing.

Evans, in the service about one year, trained at New Orleans and Pensacola, Fla. Phila.

Hamilton is an electrical engineer and Shcpard a newspaper man. JOINED IN MARCH Shepard Barclay said in New York that his artist brother went on active Naval duty last March, after having served as a Naval camofleur in the first World War and remaining in the Naval Reserve throughout the intervening peace. "The last letter we got from McClelland," he said, "was received here on June 27 and was postmarked somewhere in the South Pacific." The last paragraph of that letter read: "My duty has been all I could hope for. I have only missed one thing action! After all, that' what I am here for was announced yesterday. Plans for the base, which it is expected will serve as a model for similar projects in other naval districts, were completed less than two months ago and were given immediate approval by Vice Admiral Russell R. Waesche, commandant of the Coast Guard. TRAINING CENTER In addition to serving as an operations base for Coast Guard river patrols, the new station will be a training center for new members of the auxiliary, and may later be used for training new men in the regular Coast Guard, under the direction of the District Training Officer of the Fourth Naval District. Major features of the new base will include a marine elevator, for hauling out small craft for repairs; a machine shop to service auxiliary vessels, and a radio station powerful enough to contact all patrol craft from Camden. CAN BE DISMANTLED A number of innovations have been incorporated in the plans for the station building. To facilitate use of the base for classrooms, the mess hall may be divided into several rooms by sliding doors. The pre-fabricated design of the entire structure will permit quick dismantling if it proves desirable to transfer it to another site. Sleeping quarters for 32 men are included, with locker space for many more. A sick bay, operations office, weather observation station and radio room will be on the second floor together with an "Admiral's Room." to be used for the entertainment of distinguished guests.
