(fl — An organization called Junior Engineering Training for Schools is bringing the lacts of engineering to a growing number of young people and may boost America's race with Russia for trained engineers. Originated by Michigan State University to 1950, the JETS club program is doing in engineering what 4-H and FFA clubs long have done in agriculture — and with amazing results. Since the first JETS club was organized in Bast Lansing high school in November of I960, the program has grown to include 77 clubs in 19 states with an active membership of lore than 2,000 boys and girls.

The ground tore past him ai he looked dowo. He tased back to the platform and crouched beside the door, poised to spring on Mosley the instant the door opened. The train screeched to a sudden stop and Mike's feet flew out from under him. The sound from the sky — he knew it now—Stukasl Little black s p e c k s circled overhead and began to take form • they dropped lower. Mike leaped from the platform and rolled down the siding. Behind him men mured from the train, from the platform, through the windows. . .. The scream —the .hideous scream as the bombs fell to earth. Mik« covand his head. . . The ground rumbled and split under the impact of the bombardment The Urst volley fell wide of the train. Everyone was up and running madly over the Held toward a grove of olive tieaa. They fell and elawad at the earth as the Stukas came in for a second pass. Over bis shoulder Mik« saw the third car disintegrate The line of can went into a snake dance. The engine skittered off the track and rolled down the rail bed, snorting and hissing. • • • MIKE tumbled in at the edge of the olive grove. Soldiers pound In all about him and tell 1st and lay motionless. The Stukas turned from the destroyed train and began to bias 1 the »oldi«rt in the Held who wen scurrying Ilk* frightened ants.

"Do you want them to know when we are?" the officer yelled. "They know where we artl What kind of a war is this?" The argument ended as a hafl of bullets ripped the earth around them. Then, their bombs gone, their machine guns empty, the Stukas ende- their sport and flew off. Someone tapped Mike on his shoulder. A young Australian captain stood over him. "You there, get over there." He pointed to a unit of men forming outside the grove. Mike wobbled to his feet. "Colonel Potter—where is he?" "The Colonel's been nit" "I want to speak to the next in command." He dug into his pockets for the credential. It was missing Mike looked about The whole place was in utter confusion- It would be useless. ... "Sorry, sir," Mike said to the captain and he joined the group of men at the edge of th* grove. • • * . OTHER officers were forming groups of a hundred men, regardless of former units. The Aussie captain stood before Mike's group. "All right, lads, pay attention," the captain said. "With thoa* Stukas about, we've got to stay in small units. No more train rides . ." Feeble laughter. "We strike out by foot and stay together." "Captain, sir. where are we going?" "That's a top secret," the cap-, tain lied. He wished he knew. They moved out over the raila toward th* foothills, marching at a murderous pace in search at refuge before' the Stukas ' r«- lurned. . • As for Michael Morrison, American tourist ... He was helplessly snarled in a gang of desperate, fleeing men. It was useless tor him to try to find someone in command —no on* seemed to be in command. Wher* to go?
