6 Friday, Feb. 18, 1941 MASON crrv GLOBE-GAZETTE P-38 Film Has Surprise for Cadet Army life has its lighter and brighter moments, even for the hard working air cadets. It has 51s surprises, too--such as the one Cadet Lafe Stueland, son of Mrs. Marie Stueland, received the other, day at Williams Field, Chandler, Ariz., when he saw another Mason Cityan, Betty Chapman Cadwell, in a technicol- or film at the field. The film was designed to show the P-38 and its flight characteristics, but its introductory matter consisted of a shot of Mrs. Cad- weH, in a bathing suit, standing beside a swimming pool. Action showed her diving in, swimming back toward the camera, stopping, · smiling and winking. Then the voice ot the instructor says, "Okay, fellows, let's get down to business." Cadet Stueland described this experience in a recent letter to his mother and commented favorably on Mrs. Cadwell's appearance and performances. Not so long ago, the 2 were in the cast of a Mason City Little Theater play, "George Washington Slept Here."
