Cadets Are Now Taught Navigation IOWA CITY _ Naval Aviation cadets, whoso big job at the Iowa pre-flight school is to get into first class fighting shape before beginning actual flying, arc also given plenty of classroom -subjects during their three months preflight course. One of the most interesting--and one which will prove the most useful later, is a course in pro-navigation. W h a t (lie cadets learn hero about navigating will be supplemented in later training-. Some of the future flyers will attend special navigation schools anil become navigators foi- navy bombers, patrol planes and other aircraft. All of them will have a sizable background in navigation. At the Iowa City base the introductory navigation course was planned by a group of expcris which includes William McPhec, a civilian instructor \vlio was a navigator in the British merchant marine for eight years and Robert .Jackson, a Idiocies scholar, who has specialized in aerial navigation. McPhec, who holds a B. A. and ill. A. degrees from the University of Utah, points out the difference between ship navigation and plane navigation thus: "Navigation, or computing a position from an airplane must be done much faster than from a surface vessel. In the air one reckons wj'th three dimensions while from a ship there arc but two. A strong wind may throw a plane navigator off his calculations by taking him off his course as much ns 15 or 20 miles an hour, while the same wind would have only a slight ef- feel on the course of a surfac* ship." McPhee, a native of Scotland who became an American citizen after a r r i v i n g here 12 years ago, holds a first mate and navigator's license in the British merchant marine. Shipping on all types of steam and diescl ships, he missed very few parts of the globe on his voyages to all corners oC the British empire. The officers at the base also re. ccive a "brushing up" navigation course from Mr. McPhec. He says [ the greatest improvement in modern navigation has been the change away from the idea that it requires a great deal of mathematics. Today the navigators are taught to use prepared tables and learn where to fitul the references they need instead of knowing the tables in full.

Sonny, What yOU dO to your car is your business, although chances are you won't be able to gee another while the war is on. Now that you've smashed it, at least save the pieces for your local scrap drive. But what your daddy does to his car is the nation's business! The American way of Jife is geared to the motor car. Every automobile is a vital part of our country's transportation system. It takes the warworker to his job, transports munitions, and carries civilians in their many essential travels which form the basic pattern of U. S. business. Every Car that is laid Up for whatever reason places an additional burden on the already overtaxed railroad, street car, and bus systems. Thar is why cars and tires must be used wisely, must be preserved to play their part in holding war production at maximum. Your Phillips 66 Service Man is pledged to help you Care For Your Car. , . For Your Country. And though you drive less miles, don't make the mistake of assuming that your car needs less care. Reduced driving may actually increase crankcase dilution of oil by unhurried fuel . . . may increase sludge because of added condensation of moisture. Both greatly reduce the motor protection and lubricating efficiency of your oil. Your battery, with charging time cut down, will need more frequent inspection. And spark plugs must be scientifically adjusted to prevent waste of fuel. Remember, every Phillips 66 Service Man is specially trained to make your car and your tires ksc longer and go farther. Enlist his aid, when you stop at any Orange and Black 66 Shield for Phillips 66 Poly Gas, famous for fast starting pep and extra mileage ... and Phillips 66 Motor Oil, J00% paraffin base
