'4 Thandar, Jia. «, 1H4 KASOK CITT GLOBE-GAZETTE NAME OF 'WAG' IS ASSAILED Psychologist Claims Title "Unfortunate" ntteburcb, (UJS--The name WAG "sounds I' 1 "* a Bronx cheer no matter how sweetly it was intended," Dr. Donald- Anderson Laird, internally-known · psychologist of Middle-Haddam, Conn., told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette when questioned about the failure ol the women's army recruiting program to attract more women. Two senators in Washington ·charged that the uniform of the women's army corps was at fault. But Dr. Laird referred to his public statement early in 1943 that the name WAC was "unfortunate" and would likely hold down enlistments. "Developments since fhgn have borne out my prediction," he said. Dr. Laird told the Post-Gazette "the nickname WAC must have been concocted by a man who calls his wife the 'drudge of the ecullery.'" "Men don't like to be called by downright unpleasant names such as 'stinkey* or 'pukey" or 'the squirt'--but some men thought ·women would like to be called yfACs," he said. The psychologist praised the names of other auxiliary services, and added that WAC uniforms are line, and "so are the women wearing them." With regard to the charges against WAC garb, he said, "it is far easier to change the name of the women's army corps .than to change the uniform. Anyway, it's the name that matters." WACS DECLARE THEY AKE PROUD OF NAME - . Des Moines, (U.PJ--The WACs at ·Fort Des Moines are proud of their nickname and they have no patience with theories of Dr. Donald Anderson Laird, 1 internally known psychologist. -Dr.-Laird contended that the name ""WAC" sounds like a Bronx cheer and is responsible for failure of the women's army recruiting program to attract more women. "I think it is nonsense," said Cpl. Lola C. La ' Faugh, Seattle, Wash, "The term WAC is short. It is distinctive. It means exactly : what it is intended to mean-women's army corps. No other word could tell the story so simply." Pvt. (F. C.) Doris E. Mincher, : Oakland, CaL, asked: "What would become of our navy if men refused to enlist because they would be called 'tars' or 'salts?' " Lt. Marie H. Eichelberger, Olympia, Wash., head of WAC recruiting for Iowa, said: "I have interviewed personally · thousands of women. I have talked to groups of thousands more and at no time have I sensed the slight- ·est reluctance about joining the ' corps because of its name. In fact · this is the first time I have heard * ci any such reason." NAZIS DECLARE WAC : RECRUITING "INADEQUATE" ! BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The German radio boasted Wed' aesday that the response to re- quests for volunteers in the WACs * and other women's services "has ·been totally inadequate." ' Berlin said that Time magazine had quoted Col. Oveta Culp Hobby, WAC commander, as saying that requirements can be filled only by compulsory recruiting. BIGGEST VITAMIN BUYS QSCO DRUG OFFERS) You Highest Quality at Lowest Prices DEM1LL.E, JB., WEDS--Sign- Ing up for a marriare license in Los Angeles are Richard DeMUIr, 21, son of Movie Directory Cecil B. DeMille, and Bosalind Jane Shaffer, 24. Family in Auto Mishap En Route to Wisconsin Hntehhu--Mr. and Mrs. Harold Perkins received word from their ' son and daughter-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Calvin Perkins, stating that while enroute to their home at Madison, Wis., an accident befell them near Claremont. Their car skidded on ice in the road and upset off the grade, turning over twice. Luckily no one. of the fam- , ily was seriously injured. Mrs. Perkins received several severe · ^ body bruises and the older son, Glen, received a gash on the top of his head. Mr. Perkins and the baby, Dennis, were uninjured. The car was damaged to the extent of $300 or more. The family ·was able to complete the homeward journey in it. ESTABLISH AIR ROUTE TO CHINA Brains and Bravery Mark Supply Lane By PRESTON GROVER An American Air Base in Northeast India, IJP)--The brains, bravery and Brilliant organization of American airmen in the air transport command have been largely responsible for developing the new 600-mUe aerial supply route to China to the point where it is a worthy substitute for the Burma road. The upward spurt of deliveries over the hnrap coincided with the arrival of such civil airlines experts as C. K. Smith of Dallas, Texas, former president of American Airlines, who now is a brigadier general, and the appointment of Brig. Gen. Earl S. Hoatr of Sioux City, Iowa, to take charge of the India-China wing of the ATC. Scores of flyers have been downed in the"dense Burma jungles while helping to establish the new supply route. Some have died and some have been rescued after incredible hardships, but due to the secrecy with which the ATC, for obvious reasons, surrounded the operations, the story of their heroism has been a closed book. Now that the route is'firm- ly established some of the tale can be told. The story of these flyers is one not of split second bravery that develops under sudden emergency in battle, but the kind of courage and nerve that must be sustained for many hours or days and sometimes many weeks. Sometimes the planes do not make it and the crews most bail out. Sometimes Japanese pursuit planes dive from the Himalayan clouds to down such easy meat as a lumbering transport. When anyhody gets out of the jungle safe it's something of a miracle. As an example, take the case of the plane piloted by Lt. Ted R. Carmack, Brewton, Ala. Those with him in a plane loaded with gasoline included Hadio Corporal James King, Eugene, Ore., and Cpl. Muriel E. Sampson, Oakland, Cal. A Japanese zero attacked, forcing them to jump at 10,000 feet One of the airmen landed in a native village and sent out patrols which brought all the others into the village within 2 hours. Then began a 35-day hike. On the 17th day they met an American missionary, Allen B. Cook, who fed and doctored them and turned them in the right direction. They reached an American air base in China, Dec. 9. To handle such situations an elaborate air rescue service has been organized.
