ARMY FOnCES ON NEW BRITAIN, Aug. 1—The task of operating the "biggest little airline 1 : in the Southwest Pacific war theater 1ms fallen to two officers and three enlisted men of n Held artillery battalion at this advanced island outpost. The pilots and operators of this two-plane passenger and freight service are First Lieutenants Wnr- ren Brandow of 8974 Cooper Ave., Forest Hills, Long Island, N. Y., and Herman Carlton, 1027 Chtckasawba Ave., BIytheville, Ark. Lleuts. Brando wand Carllon. Hying Piper Cubs designated L-4s by the Army and referred to as "grasshoppers" by civilians nncl service personnel alike, maintain scheduled flights between three isolated Kir- strips on the north central coast of New Britain. Airstrip No. 1 was Inherited from tile Marbles when Army forces moved onto the island; strip No 2 wns cut out of tliu jungle In four days by Infantry and engineer troops, and strip No. 3 was occupied several vtocks ago when Japanese troops withdrew from the sector. Following the occupation of the third airfield, there developed an urgent need for a more rapid form of passenger and messenger service than could be provided by a water route along the coast, which bears the heavy traffic. The; result—an airline operated with planes normally Intended for use only us observation craft for spotting artillery fire against the enemy. The ground crew of the airline Is' composed o fTech. 3 Ivan Settles, 10018 McNerney Ave., Southgate, lallf.; Pvt. Bert E. Hnrt, J047 Oak St., Ogden, Utah, and Pvt. John Pehlapek of Wnlnul, Kansas. Neutralization . of. Japanese, air power In the New. Britain area has almost eliminated danger of Interception by enemy planes, but the hazards of tropical weatlier conditions, are forever present. None of the airfields In use by the Cubs Is large enough to afford safe landing for transport or combat aircraft, therefore the entire burden of air communication frills on the shoulders of Lleuts. Brandow and C.irltou ami two small unarmed planes. ' One plane of this Island airline will often travel the circuit from airstrip No. 1 to strip No. 3 via strip No. 2—a distance, of approximately 10 miles—three or four times dally. In addition to the routine runs, the Cub pilots almost every dny nre called on for special missions. These may Include everything from contacting an infantry patrol operating inland toward Jap positions to evacuating a seriously wounded soldier from the front line area. Lieuts. Brandow and Carlton were strictly "landlubbers" before the war. They received night training at Dcnton. Texas and nt the Field Artillery School, Port Sill, Okla. Each pilot has registered more than 100 combat hours since arriving in the New Britain sector Mrs. L. T. Wilson, Leachvllle. Memphis Mclliortlsl Hospital Admitted- Mrs. Sadie Hall, Hayti, Mo.

GII.ROY, D I) I These texts, widely chosen, have In common the note ot emphasis upon -discipline and self-control with regard for wise counsel and Instruction. i "Fools," says the writer of pro-' verbs, "despise wisdom and Instruc- ! tlon." There were fools abroad in, the ancient world, and there are plenty of the same sort of fools today-perverse people who think it, clever to disregard the teachings of experience and the counsels of the wise. Fathers and mothers, says this ancient philosopher; are good guides. Alas! it is not always true- there are too many instances today in which they do not set a good example or give good Instruction to tholr children. The problem of juvenile delinquency too often roots back Into adult delinquency Nevertheless, fathers and mothers are for the most part good counselors —die Fifth Commandment is slili valid. . ' ' The Rechnbttes of whom Jeremiah writes offer a fine example In self-control and In fidelity to a high ideal, but modem youth would not want to follow them In every particular, for a part of Hit admonition ot Jonadab, their father, ana of Reehab, their grandfather, wns that they should build no houses, .sow no seed, plant no vineyards, but should live In tents Whei) Paul admonishes the Corinthians about self-discipline with reference to the athletic Held and the prize ring lie is on more modern ground, and what he says is reinforced hy every athletic coach. "Every man that striveth for mastery Is temperate In all things " It lias ever been so; and Paul remind, us that the business of living of winning an Incorruptible crown as the approval of a good life Is vastly more important than victory in an'athletic contest. Surely there never was a better disciplined man than Paul, yet what a warning for lesser nien to be on guard is his confession of his care and watchfulness and constant discipline lest he himself should be a castaway! It is in the same spirit that lie advises the 'Ihessaloninns to "abstain from all appearance of evil." How different all this sounds from the counsels one often hears today, especially from the so-called sophisticates whose attitude toward temptation is that it is something to yield to! Self-expression, they call it, and the spirit of it is to follow your impulse, trust your feelings, disregard your inhibitions. Dignity, Force Integrity Re-Elect MRS. E. W.

But old truths are finding vindication In the experiences of many disillusioned youths' who have followed these false counsels. "Be not deceived; God is not mocked; for whatsoever a 'man sowetJi, that shall he also reap," What Is true manliness? What are the marks and qualities of a good woman? fs the Bible wrong, or Is it a sound hook, a book that speaks out of man's experience with sin, as well as out of man's discovery of God? There is nothing weak or sisdfied about the well-disciplined life Uie Bible describes in Its many passages, both in the Old Testament and 1 nthe new. The revolt against the sort of life, evidenced in so many quarters, bodes 111 for our American life. It brought pain, and sorrow, and downfall in the life of Israel. A sound national life is based on well-UiscIplini'd individual lii'Ing.
