THURSDAY, JANUARY !i, man. THE DAILY COimiER. CONNLCbL.SVlL.L-Ui. JL'A. Urges City Port to Train Skilled Pilots United States Army Air bases, like the ore established at Conncllsvillo Airport, could be used to train 50,000 boys to become expert pilots, Congressman J. Bucll Snyder of Perryopolis, chairman of the House subcommittee in charge of Aimy appropriations, declared in Washington. The congressman made his suggestion as he revealed thai the committee "will be inclined to appropriate something like 3100,000,000 more this year for national defense equipment that we did last year." The appropriation last year was $463,000,000, Snyder said, the largest in peacetime history. "We expect by 1042," he said in a statement, "to have 8,000 airplanes, modern and up-to-date, with seacoasl and anti-aircraft equipment, and at the same time be able to help our neighbor, South America, in case the Monroe Doctrine should be encroached upon by a foreign power. "In the meantime, in our colleges and our Army air bases, such as ConneUsville, (Pa.), Langley Field, (Va.), Dayton, (Ohio), Allentown and Harrisburg, (Pa.), and the like we will train 50,000 of our boys to be skilled pilots." Striking at the aggression of some old world rulers, Snyder said their policies make it "absolutely necessary for all the governments in the new world hemisphere to be amply prepared at all times for any emergency."
