In another instance, the radio newsman says, n young second lieutenant in the paratroop corps was Jounil with his throat slit and a German knife beside his body. He apparently had become lodged in a tree while parachuting down and wn s killed as ho hung there.

Advantages of this type of assisted takeoff for carrier-based planes with heavy loads of gns and ammunition for long flights arc obvious. There Is n further advantage in extra bursts of speed In combat. Naval aviation, not. having the vast number ot planes and men lhat Die Army Air Forces can muster, has not had the publicity plugs of Us companion service. The Navy has few'air stations Inland, and its curriers are usually far - from home. But naval aviation has a number of tricks stuffed in its wlndsqcks.

Shaped like a tear-drop bomb »nil hung under each wing of a plane just like n bomb, this piickiiKe contains two machine guns and am munition.
