16 THURSDAY, JANUARY 18,, 1945 Fire Power Has Increased Five Times Washington, (#)--United States naval fire power--the ability to "throw steel"--has be«n increased to 5 times its July 1, 1940 capacity while tannage of combatant ships has been tripled. Two thousand tons ot destruction packing steel can be hurled by guns o£ the combatant ships, auxiliaries and coast guard vessels in a 15 second firing run. the navy said Wednesday in the first disclosure of its punching power. That is the equivalent of 50 freight car loads o£ steel, and does not include the powder used to hurl it Firepower as well as number of ships, measures a navy's supremacy. The navy explained that behind HIGHEST PRE-WAK QUALITY. its increased fire power lay radical changes in the armament of modern lighting ships. The most modern battleship, the USS Iowa, commissioned in February, 1943, packs a wallop 92 per cent greater than the pre-Peari Harbor USS Texas. The Jowa is described as being armed with 9 16-inch guns in threes, 20 -5inch double purpose guns in twin mounts, and many smaller antiaircraft guns. The Iowa, in a 15 second firing run under normal conditions, can fire more than 15 tons ot shells. The light cruiser USS Denver, commissioned in 1942 with 12 6- ineh guns, 12 5-inch and many smaller AA guns, could outshobt the USS Omaha before her modernization by 110 per cent. The greatest increase in firepower has been shown by destroyers the latest "cans," the 2,200 ton Sumner class, lay down a barrage 216 per cent greater than the old "4-staekers" of 1918 such as the USS Chew. r LEAGUE ELECTS Rake--The Luther league of Liberty Lutheran church held its annual election. Paul Vaagen was elected president to succeed Mrs. Glenn Olson; Mrs. Wallace Leland was elected vice president; Carmen Havnen, secretary; Elwood Toft, treasurer; Marlyn Ingebritson, and John Lee Sunde and Perlon Engelby, ushers.

Carton Bowling in Dark Helps Flyers See By EOMNEK WHEELER An 8th Air Force Bomber Base, Jan. 12, (Delayed), (#)--To look at Capt. Victor Mozersky, flight surgeon, you would never think ms interest was bowling duckpins in a pitch-dark room, or rolling white medicine balls across a darkened floor. It sounds a bit screwy, as Mozi ersky is the 1st to admit--but it produces night-flying American aerial gunners, pilots and bombardiers who can see like cats. They are members of the 8th air force "newsboy squadron," the only American unit flyinr nocturnal missions exclusively. It was originally organized to carry on a leaflet war against Germany and German-occupied areas. Mozersky, a peacetime surgeon whose home is at San 'Antonio Tex., set up the training for night flymg when the squadron first began leaflet missions 18 months ago. American air force officers believe it is superior even to the RAF system on which it was based. With the aid of ,3 enlisted as- sistants--Mozersky processes in 2 week courses every officer and enlisted man assigned to the squadron. Pilots, navigators, bombardiers and gunners, trained to fly daylight missions in close formation, must be re-trained to fly alone at night and to find tareels for pinpoint bombing without the aid of specialized pathfinders and flares used by the RAF. Night flyers must never look directly at an object, but above, below or to the side. "The reason for this," explains Mozersky, "is that the area directly back of the eye can't see at night, and light vibrations must be picked up by eye areas which receive them on an angle." The hardest task is teaching gunners to look one way and shoot another, and to judge distance Sn darkness. A complicated system o£ lights produces condi- Thompson-ONeilCo. »!?** SERVICE GROCERS ""?« BIRDS EYE FROSTED FOODS W. K.

Trained night flyin* crews become able to distinguish objects and Judge distances in light conditions which would b* total darkness to an ordinary person. Duckpin bowling at 20 yards, with white flare cases as "pins," is one of the exercises developed by Mozersky,. Another is to sit the men in a circle around a soft white ball suspended from the ceiling. They must try to catch the swinging pendulum. Aerial photographs of actual targets are shown under Ight con- ditions duplicating what the night crews will encounter. The crews practice gunnery against silhouettes of enemy night lighters on a machine which gives the score of possible hits under various degrees of darkness. The records of the squadron proves its success.
