MOORE United Press Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON. Mar. 12. (UP) — Gen. Carl Spaatz. new commandei of the Army Air Forces, today said than an adequate, alert peacetime air arm -— having equal status with the ground and navy services—is this nation's best insurance against surprise attack. The atomic bomb has so increased the effectiveness of military air power, he said, that "any future conflict will begin with air action and niay well be concluded by it." In a statement on the policies of the peacetime air forces, he outlined a new organization of three air commands—strategic, defensive and tactical. The strategic air command will comprise the combat groups of (he long range striking forces. Tlie air defense command will "be responsible for the air defense of the continental United Staates and for the coordination of the continental air units," including the air national guard and air reserve. The tactical air command "will be • charged with cooperative missions with the surface forces." EpaaU, preferred one unified military department with the air ground and Navy forces having equal standing. If this is not effected, .he said, there must be L' T;vej^cci ^"nrc'r, department.parnllc to the .present war and navy departments. The reorganization provides for nn air university to function directly under Spaatz. The university will provide formal schooling of all air forces officers. It will eive professional training iir sublets more advanced than studied by officers when they wer c acquiring their primary military specialities or ratings. His peacetime orgiiniaztion plan envisaged combat air groups stationed on advanced strategic bases where they "can be poised well within reach of the war potential of any possible enemy." The mission of the Army Air forces in peacetime. Spaatz said. "is to develop and lo maintain military a' r force capable of immediate, sustained and expanding application of the accepted American doctrine of military air power." This air .force, he continued, must "be geared to work in close harmony with the nation's ground and naval services in discharging the joint responsibility for supporting American foreign policy and for maintaining -the peace." The peacetime organization called for five supporting commands in addition to the three combat commands. The five subordinate commands will be: 1. Air material command, including maintenance, supply, research and development; 2. Training command, in charge of all except lop level and unit training; 3. Air transport command providing global systems of transport, communication, and flight, weather, rescue, safely and aeronautical chart services; 4. Air university; 5. Air force proving ground command. The air, university, directly under the commanding general of air, will provide formal schooling for all air fojcc officers. The prototype of the air university is Ihc Army Air Forces School. Maxwell ijield, Ala., which will begin an air and staff course In Scplember, 1946. MEMPHIS, Tcnn., Mar. 12. (U1M —Mrs. J. c.
