The 1942 bag comprised 723 planes destroyed, 250 probably destroyed and 313 damaged, the announcement said. Most of the planes were shot down over New Guinea, where a single squadron of Curtiss P-40 fighters held off the Japanese from mid-March to the end of April. "Odds didn't matter," the announcement said. "Both American and Australian fighter pilots took on as many as seven or eight to one and always came out well on the right side. "Allied losses both in individual combat and in aggregate result have been small in comparison with the enemy." The review said that allied control of the air over New Guinea, combined with the steady improvement in methods o't air co-operation with land forces and increasing success in attacks on enemy shipping, "is an excellent augury for 1043."

HEADQUARTERS, SEVENTH VIRFORCE, (#)--Lou Zamperini, ormer national collegiate mile hampicn, finds it easier to face apanese anti-aircraft fire on a ombing raid than to compete gainst Cunningham, Fenske, or "enzke on the cinder track. Zamperini, 25-year-old former f. S. C. distance star from Torance, Calif., was a bombardier on le army air force's Wake island aid Dec. 24. Lou, a second Heuten- nt in the army air corps, bombed runway and bunkers on Wake. te was one of those awarded an ir medal for their deeds. * * * "Nobody was scared," said Zamperini after his return. "I think everyone had an excited, jumpy feeling -- exactly the same as that one gets before a big race. I've been scared more before a race against Cunningham, Venzke and Fenske than I was that night." * * ·# The Wake island raid was the irst combat flight for this group, vhich was organized a few months go and is comprised of young men just out of Randolph and Celly and Midland, Tex., flying chools. "As bombardier," Zamperini ontinued, "I have all the fun. We iad orders to watch everything. Ve checked everything carefully. ?here was only one miss by our whole squadron. That was a bomb hat fell offshore only 20 feet and t might have done some damage. * * ¥ "The Japs were asleep for a lone while. My plane was one of the last In the formation.

TIDE REVERSES TO GUP B. .C MIAMI, Fla., (U.R) -- Alabama played its heart out and came from behind to win the hard way and added the Orange bowl crown to an impressive string of post-season victories. The Crimson tide rolled over Boston college 37 to 21. The 30,000 fans saw 'Bama turn what looked like certain defeat into decisive victory. Boston, collegiate champions of the east, beaten only once during the regular season, opened the game like a sure fire winner.

A few minutes later Holovak scored again, taking a lateral from Ed Doherty and racing 35 yards to the double stripe. Mickey Connolly split the uprights for botii extra points. * * * At the start of the second period, Alabama was perched on the Boston 14.

Weather Men in Air Forces Play Big Role By WTLUAM McMENAMIN United Press Staff Correspondent CHICAGO, (U.R--The lives of thousands of American fighting men may depend upon how \vel members of the army air forces nev* technical training command learn their lessons in a training school here. The trainees are aviation cadets studying in the University of Chicago meteorological department for commissions as second lieutenants and assignments to air force command weather stations. * * * Every time an army bomber roars down the runway for a takeoff, the pilot and navigator must knov/ to the smallest exacting detail what kind of weather they will encounter on the mission. If weather conditions are too severe on a certain leg ol the flight, the navigator plots a course to circumvent the storm area. Weather forecasters must make careful studies of charts, calculate the movements of great air masses and apply intricate formulas to data relayed in from distant points before the great 1,000-plane raids take- of{ from England for European objectives. Success or failure of the raid depends much on the skill of the weather men. They can determine if the target will be visible or obscured by low-hanging clouds at a given time and if winds, foe or violent storms will make the air voyage perilous. * * * The new weather officer candU dates learn to analyze charts showing existing weather conditions. The charts are intricate and meaningless except to an expert but to him they show at a. glance ground weather conditions throughout a whole continental nrea. They show vertical cross-sections o£ masses of air. The charts indicate barometric pressure conditions at various levels and the movement o£ fronts of cold or warm air. From them the weather expert can forecast the weather for a reasonable perioxi ahead. The weather is also a vital factor in chemical warfare. It determines when a gas attack can be safely launched without the danger that the wind will blow the gas back into the attacking troops. ·? * * High-angle artillery fire also is affected by the weather. Long- range seasonal probabilities enter into plans of campaigns as when the Germans in Poland counted on, and cashed in on, a longer dry season than had been expected. Observation locates the zones of separation between the vast moving masses. Experience, formulas and calculations determine how they are moving, and what their position will be at a given time. Study of the characteristics of the individual masses of air themselves suggest what will be the reaction in the form of weather as the masses pass a given point. The reactions include drops in temperature, clouds, rain, snow or thunderstorms. * * * High school and college graduates with training in trigonometry, algebra and physics are being enrolled for the new air force technical command training course. The high school graduate trainees will begin their training Feb. 1 and the college students will begin their course March 1. Both groups will be paid while in training and will receive free uniforms, board, room and tuition. Buy War Savings Bonds and Stamps from your Globe-Gazette carrier boy. MOAN NUMSKULL I it-19 PEAR.
