The playground's conventional swings and slides stand idle »nd forgotten. "M just got here," said Mrs. Ethel Hamilton, whose second- grade boys and girls were oh-ing and ah-lng about their new plaything.

Mrs. Dorothy Pinkerton, principal, says the plane will, be a func tional piece of playground equip ment and a subject for sketching and drawing". "The youngsters love to study it. They'll be able to learn, wit] such a model to translate on pape their ideas of inanimate objects,' she said. "Then too, the plane will be a symbol to them of the jet age, an era of danger, and it will foste respect for the Air Force which dedicates ttsell to our defense and safety."

The Air Force happily noted tha "a lot of youngsters all over the land haven't seen a jet up close and it will surely contribute to these youngsters' education abou the world today."
