(fl'i—Jl takes 888 engines to keep American airlift planes zooming throUBli the corridors to Berlin. Ah 1 force main- tpivince crews work on a 24-how-a -ijf, seven-days-n-wcok schedule. Dtirlng January they made four engine changes a day on airlift planes. It takes nearly two days to install a new engine. Each weighs roughly 2,400 pounds. The average life of an engine is 192 trips to Berlin. The steady grind of three-a-day flights to Berlin quickly wears out engines—and many other parts. But as a part, wears out It is replaced. So the planes do not wear out as your automobile wears out. Air Force officials say not a single airlilt plane has been scrapped —except those which have crashed —during the gruelling months of supplying Berlin with food and fuel. An airlift plnne plods through the corridors to the former German capital for about four months before it is shuttled baclt to the U. S. for overhaul. It flies an averaee of eijlit hours a day. Some days it will be in the air 12 or 14 hours. And some days It will squat on the ground for overhaul. The pilots and crew inspects each plane dally for defects. After about 12 trips to and from Berlin it gets what the Air F«rce calls a 50-hour inspec .Clout 150 items on the plane are checked. Rfad Courier News Want Ads cnmiuiiD IT MH MIVKr.

Lilly Warren said sharply, "Be quiet, you're all right now- Just be quiet." The others, accompanied by Harding and Mabel Jones, entered. The two men were George Bascombe and Fred Sillwell, and the girl carried between them was Mollie Stark. Nona McGuire, the girl who first came to the house, gave their names. Fred's principal clothing was a bulging money belt, while George's once white pants were stained anc .n rags, showing the source of the 3 lood -stained Mollie's thigh.

She wLU sleep soon from the morphine." "You did a good job," Bea said. "It was necessary for my plan to know something of medicine and surgery." Harding said shortly. He picked up the girl.
