Dean Calkins predicts that many men who were preparing for careers in law, architecture, dentistry and other professions will go into business rather than resume their long training. He foresees also a 'desire for business training in many mature' men who had little or no college education but who may have definite business objectives. The latter, lie says, will be offered a special instruction course, under direction of selected advisers, before being entered in the school of business.

" · II, S, PILOTS FLY CHINA WOUNDED Airmen Speed Across Burma Plains to India By ALBERT RAVEN'HOM United Press Stair Correspondent With The Chinese Army In Northwestern B u r m a , (U.R)-- Wounded Chinese soldiers are be- ·ing flosvn from close behind the battle areas back across the mountains to -hospitals- in India- by a group of American army enlisted pilots. On a liny landing strip, somewhere . in the swampy plains of northern Burma, the pilots set t h e i r 2-sealer "grass-hoppers'" down. Battle casualties who've been carried .back along jungle trails from the fighting are hurried :in the arms of American enlisted medical men from a hidden hospital into the waiting plane. Back inIn4ia a, U. S. army ambulance isCwaiting tor- the patient. He Is lifted from the still sputtering plane and carried . t o an American hospital where all the means of* modern medical science are available to rebuild his shattered body. In the forward areas the mere suggestion of his being flown out was enough to bring a smile of anticipation on the face ol a suffering Chinese fighter. "They've so grateful it hurts a little," said 1st Lt. Ned O. Epps, 29, Raleigh, N. Car., the dark- haired vigorous officer commanding the planes. "This moniinjj one of the Chinese boys wouldn't fret into the ambulance after he landed until the pilot accented a gift from him--an oranse and a pair of rope shoes, which was about all he had, I guess." Col. Jasper N. Bell, 34, Santa Barbara, Cal., the air force representative on the staf fof Brig. Gen Haydon L. Boatner, described the organization as a liaison outfit. "They not only fly patients," he said. "When there's an officer or a piece of equipment we want to get to a. spot In a. hurry, that's where they go." The pilots in prewar days came from every walk in li£c--school leathers, truck drivel's, jewelers and a student of theology. They fly over terrain where air currents and emergency landing conditions would make peacetime operations prohibitive- ( "If we went by flyiup resula- tions, we just couldn't function," one pilot said. "So we just think fast and do what we can." One plane mechanic summed up their job as we slood \vatching one more "grass-hopper" come down across the Patkoi mountains, separating us from Burma, with a wounded soldier, circle and glide to a stop under the trees. "The American army-is doing everything it can to give the Chinese figrhtiny up in front an even break. I suppose we're just part of the whole show." U. S. Utilizes Color to Speed Beach Supplies Philadelphia, U.R)_The army said paint was playing a major role m reducing (he beach-head confusion which attends any invasion operation. Col. Fred A. Alcitfahon. commanding the Philadelphia ord- dance district, said that in. past operations boxes and containers Jut ashore under enemy fire bore 175 different hues. "With the co-operation of the various war department agencies " le said, "army ordnance has elirn- nated 103 superflous shades and standardized 72 colors" When the all-out offensive igainst the mainland of Europe is aunched, each branch of the armed services will have a dislin- iuishing color for its shipments, likewise, bombs of envying types vill have a particular identifying olor to facilitate their handling n the confusion ol battle.
