THE LEAVENWORTH TIMES, FRIDAY EVENING, AUGUST 29,1952^ Jet Aces Know Opponents Not Official Enemy DETROIT UPi— The jet aces of the Korean War are well aware of who the real enemy is over there. Eleven of them told the Air Force Association about it, in a symposium last night. Said Maj. James Jabara, 28, the first air force jet ace: "We have never seen the fellows that are flying the MIG. We have never seen the color of their eyes or face.- But seme of them are not Chinese and not Korean. "Some of them are very good pilots. They have flown combat missions somewhere else, and they have a lot of jet time. They have not flown all that time in China or North Korea." To which Col. Francis S. Gabreski, 33, the top ranking surviving air force ace, added that communist pilots who survive 10 to 15 missions in Korea are "sent back to Russia, where their aggressiveness is an important psychological factor in the training of new Red fliers." ' The pilots agreed that "the reason we are beating the Commies in Korea" is superior pilot ability, and that there is little difference i between the limits and capacities of the opposing airplanes now in action. Jabara said the air force Is not getting the right people in pilot training command. "We are not offering rewards to come into the air force and fly jet airplanes. The kids today can make more money outside. Besides, there's little glamor left in flying since they did away with the goggles and the 50- mission gap." Highway Toll Seven Times Greater Than War Rate CHICAGO Iff) — Nearly seven times more Americans were killed in automobile accidents thanjin the Korean fighting during the first seven months of this year. The Korean dead in that period totaled less than 3,000. The nation's traffic death toll was 20,000. The figures were made public by the National Safety Council, SUBSCRIBE FOB. THE TIMES whose president, Ned H. Dearborn, said the comparison "is not meant to minimize the hazards of war, but rather to emphasize the highway hazards here at home." The total of 20,000 deaths for seven months increased 2 per cent over the same period last year. The quickest KO by Joe Louis in defense of his heavyweight crown was 2:04 of the first round. His opponent was Max Schmeling. KENTUCKY STRAIGHT BOURBON WHISKEY, 93 PROOF. . THIS WHISKEY IS S YEARS OlD. DISTRIBUTED BY McKESSON & ROBBINS, NEW YORK IVz Miles East of Ft.
