THE DAILY NEWS—LUDINGTON, MICHIGAN. FRIDAY, OCT. 13, 1939. H. Canfield Cook Was Formerly a Member of British Royal Flying Corps Thte Influence of the airplane today, In both war and peace, was yividly related to a large audience at Gray hall Thursday night by H. Canfield Cook, noted traveler and lecturer, who spoke on the influence of aviation In international relations. Mr, Cook, who during the World war saw active service in the British Royal Flying corps, now lives In Chicago and is an American citizen. He displayed, throughout his talk, a keen appreciation of the development of air power and its international implications. The lecture was the third in a series of four addresses being staged in Ludington by the Rotary club's Institute of International Understanding. After tracing the early history and development of aviation Mr. Cook came to the present day, telling how air power was born in Germany in 1935 •when that nation started building planes on a large scale. In discussing bombing operations in the present war, which he thought might break out very suddenly, Mr. Cook stated Germany had a decided advantage because they had only a short distance to fly over England 'before London, undoubtedly the first objective, would be reached. English planes on the other hand, he said, would have to fly a considerable distance over German territory before reaching Berlin. He stated France would have a better chance than England in more successfully bombing Berlin. In another few months, England and France will be able to match Germany, plane for plane, at the rate they are being produced now, he said. '^ Mr. Cook spoke briefly of Russia's air might. Regarding Germany's air supremacy, he said, since its air force was used principally as a threat, lieved ' that reports of its strength and numbers were ex- Frontiers, William H.

The importance of aviation as a threat was first brought home during the Munich crisis, a year ago, he said. After speaking of the air strength of various nations, including the United States, Mr. Cook spoke briefly of three methods of air attack and three methods of defense. Defensive measures, he thought, are not well enough developed yet to cope ; with a strong offense. Before he concluded, Mr. Cook said that the airplane could, if used right, be a .great force for world peace. to-1, Supervisor E. M. Briggs of Scottville voting in the negative.

In a discussion with former Gov. Philip F. LaFollette of Wisconsin on the neutrality act, Knox, the Republican vice- presidential nominee in 1936, i asked: ! "Can you make yourself seriously believe that any man, except a madman like Hitler, would deliberately involve a great nation in war to promote his own, or his party's 'political success? "Merely to start the proposition is enough to compel its prompt rejection by serious- minded citizens." Knox and LaFollette spoke on "America's town meeting of the air." In his appeal for retention of the arms embargo, LaFollette ] said the group favoring repeal "wanted us to take the same j route we took in 1916—a road] that begins with the .sale of i arms, then come credits, followed by loans, and lastly, if need be, come our army, navy and air force." eo : Unch 52.5 ' 52.5 52.8 52.6 53.5 •H.6 54.7 33.7 i 16.9 157.7 61.8 Light red kidney beans $4.00 Dark red kidney beans S4.00 Dark cranberry beans SI.75 Light cranberry beans S2.25 White pea beans $2.45 •.
