THURSDAY, DECEMBER 5, 1940 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Beauty For Christmas One Out Of Every 13 Pilot Trainees Get By By WILLIS THORNTON MA Service Staff Correspondent HAK'DOLPH FIELD. Tex.. Dee 5.—No wonder fledgling army pilots wear iheir wings with u certain conspicuoiLs pride, and no wonder &an Aiuonio mothers right to gel. their debutante daughters on fh« n'sts for inviiaions to "hops" at the West Point of the Air! iilvwy man who succeeds in attaining wings lias lea behind nlm 13 who tried and railed. For Instance: by next'June, those wings will be blossoming at the me of VOO evei-y live- weeks. For every L'ias:: &240 will have applied for the i:han«e to try for those wings. Only i:i2ij~one in .seven—will be nc-cepied for ihe elementary ilying schools. Only 770 or the 1320 get to Randolph. And only 700 wjll win the coveted wings. Those are the percentages in terms or present experience. Everything at Randolph moves' with a quiet and effortless precision that means speed, speed, and more speed. A plane comes slithering up to the runway with a cadet. itonchidlng his morning's flight ' practice. He slides out of the cockpit, and 'while he is making out his report, another cadet has already slid in on the other side ready to take the plane aloft again. A course that three years ° ago took one year to complete, with 350 hours of flying, is now completed in 31 weeks with 215 hours that are considered to turn, out quite as competent a pilot. The 10-week course here at Randolph is almost all spent in the air.. Since last January 165,000 hours have been flown at this one field with only three fatalities, and the complete year will see 200,000 hours—more than the entire air corps flew 10 years ago WEST POINTERS HELP IN'- TRAINING Every effort Is being made to bring pilot training up to an eventual rate of 12.000 a year. About 7-i2th of those pilots will train at Randolph; the others at Maxwell Field, Ala., and Moffett Field, Calif. Elementary schools, now 18 in number, will .soon be increased to 29. 'Every"'-minute is made to count. .Here's ah example: before the '"suTCeSSf ill -graduate "of" a C. A. A. (Civilian Aeronautics Authority) course ever gets to Randolph, he is measured for his slate-gray cadet uniform, the tailor shop at Randolph makes it up, and it is waiting for him when he arrives on the post. The C. A. A. elementary flying school graduate can fly—a little. .But often lie has had no military training at all. Randolph assumes he hasn't, anyway, and starts him at the bottom, remembering it must turn out not only a pilot, but an officer. So snappy young West Pointers take cadets' military education immediately in charge and attempt to. instill in them in the first five weekii something O r t h e military Mrs. C. B. Wood was assisted with iho nfternoon program by Mr.s S. J. Smith lending the devotional Mi's. J. i.

Waller, and her tji'm Klein lighter, Miss Caiherlno Davis, motored to Memphis. While in MemphLs,. Mrs. ( Waller visited Mrs. Rend Dunim- jvant. who has recently undergone ' n very serious major operation at ' the Methodist hospital, and then .went to see the Passion Piny ut ;thp Auditorium. Mrs. Walter, in view of her active life. is most certainly "ninety-two /years young." She keeps up with • the latest current, events, makes .her house .dresses, and looks after her chickens.

Lazy Bowels witii h«ffc taxativ«,c4>ntbined with syrup pepsin to nuke it agreeable and easy to take When constipation brings on acid indigestion, bloating, dizzy spells, gas, coated tongue, sour taste and bad breath, your stomach is probably "crying the blues" because your bowels don't move. It calls for Laxative Senna to pull the trigger on those lazy bowels, combined \viLh good old Syrup Pepsin to make your laxative more agreeable and easier to take. For years many. Doctors have used pepsin compounds, as agreeable carriers to make other medicines more palatable when your "taster" feels easily upset. So be sure your laxative contains Syrup Pepsin. Insist on Dr. Caklwell's Laxative Senna, -combined with Syrup Pepsin. See how wonderfully Us herb Laxative Senna wakes up lazy nerves and muscles in your intestines, to bnng welcome relief from constipation. And sec how its Syrup Pepsin makes Dr. caldwcll's medicine so smooth and agree- u-j to a touch y gullet Even finicky children love the taste of this pleasant iaimly laxative.

Failure to make a formation, to shave or get the hair properly cut, to polish a shoe or keep a locker straight, results in an immediate "gig" or demerit. Demerits mean punishment, usually in the West Point .style of going "on the ramp." That means walking a certain post, which doesn't sound bad, but 30 hours of it taken out of the few moments of free time when the rest of the cadets are in town, on pass or enjoying infrequent relaxation, is not so hot.. And too many '/gigs'S may end the hopeful flyer's ^career. - ^ ; THESE GRADUATES GET JOBS—AND QUICKLY Active tactical units of the air corps and Randolph Field itself fight, for its graduates, the former claiming their need is greatest to fill units for combat practice, the latter claiming that without sum- expanding later. One talented young graduate was so badly needed as an instructor that lie was set to this work immediately on graduation, though he was not yet 21 and hence not yet able to don his lieutenant's bars. Training planes are all too scarce, also. Foresight in designing Randolph Field and its buildings have made rough pine-board barracks umieces- cient ; instructors ihe program must suffer sary. Tlie post suggests a ccuntri club or campus more than the usual army camp. Quarters for cadets, instructors and ground crew men are commodious and comfortable. There is room for expansion. Here is one place where somebody 10 years ago looked ahead to that future which is now the urgent present.
