Only a handful remain In active duty, among them Hamilton Jjee and "Hud" Williams, Jack Knight and Ray Little. The crop of younger pilots who have taken up tho trust of putting through the mall fly under less dangerous conditions than did the pioneers, but the rigorous mall schedule makes mall fly- Ing hazardous at best.

"WAR DEBTS" ADDED ATTRACTION AT FOX NILE STAR RONALD COLMAN <J>- KERN—1200 "Mornlngr red, morning red "Lights me to nn early death." j This Is the melancholy battle song i of the helmeted troop columns as they swing forward after their retreating | foe through tlio burning city of Brest- Liltovsk, one of many spectacular and Impressive scenes In' "War Debts" which Is offered at the Fox theater today and tomorrow. Lmrld crimson flames from the tumbling buildings and homos leap Into tho rolling smoke clouds. Regiments of riflemen hurry forward stoically to pour death Into tho disorganized .armies withdrawing before them. Foam flecked horses trot the gun caissons through the smoke created twilight over the cobble stone streets as this splendid and ancient city of BO.OOO burns to ruins. The helpless fugitives—men, women nnd children—with their poor possessions piled high on carts and wagons, are trapped between the raking fire of the two armies. This authentic spectacle of -world history stirs the emotions and thoughts to profound depths as these destructive military machines annihilate the constructive work of generations, only to pile up for those yet unborn vast tax debts with all their attendant miseries. 6—Tom Howard and George Shelton, Chesterfield. 6:15—William Hall; Do Re Ml and orchestra.
