Some guys arc stumped by a camel's humps.' They say there isn't any such critter in Ihn Korean v;ar. But t h e Air Force disngres. Cross our hem-Is find hope tn die, we've seen 'cm and even count-' r,1 the humps (t\vo), thft pilots re- jioit. Navy fighter pilots recently liacked up the Air Three's orgii- ' went. The Navy fliers reported they picked off two camels near Ilung- nam, oi) the east coast of North Korea. It was another rebuff far the skeplics who have been nrgti- intf since December .that the fly tioyr. arc"merely too eager,--that they mistake bundles ori other an- inialr. for".'camel humps, rust Sly Wink : One i n f a n t r y general even cast a sly wink at the sky and co'm- numtccl:- "I wish "the air force would send me a camel -- I've al- \v;iys wanted one as a pet." But whether yon believe in camel;; or not, the t r u t h remains they Â· u ie the most fat-mating; targets ui the U. S..Fifth. Air Force. They cfirfly outrank oxen, oxcarts and bicycles. Tlit 1 ' pilot who returns to base and says, "I got mo a camel today," instantly wins attention of Uie briefing officer. "How many humps?" "Two," says the pilot. "I counl- p.l them." Kan- Thing It would be.fi rare thing, indeed if the ail'mrn spotted a one-hump camel being used by the Reds in Korea. Old onc-humper is common to North Africa. Not Asia. Allied ground forces have never found a camel or a camel's carcass. But. there is nothing, signi- f i c a n t nhout that because Allied ; round forces arc not operating us uir north as the airmen. The air force first reported spoiling camels Dec. 9. Lt. Norman Rurhner of Des Muines, la., leading 1 a flight of F-80 pets, strafed a Red convoy noitheast of Pyongyang and reported knocking off right camels. Since that time airmen have reported swooping down on ninny camels m various Red arteries of North Korea.

Only final French government approval ot a contribution totaling $4,700,000, one quarter of the total estimated cost is needed for the project to become a reality. All the technical and administrative plans are ready for work to begin immediately from both sides of the mountain. The two points of departure, one near Chamo'ix,' France, and the other near Cour- moyeur, Italy, are Bcperated by' nearly scvcnt and one-half miles of solid rock. The Mont Blanc tunnel, when completed, would be four times longer than any existing vehicular tunnel in the world. ~ The Italian government has given its full approval to the project, but the French government, after approving it in principle on several occasions, continues to hesitate because of the cost. The govern-, ment's hesitation is encouraged by sectional Interests in Frarfce. The ancients believed cabbage had medicinal properties. Auto and Otner Financing , , Chilton Loan Insurance Co.
