Mine Elected To National Honor Society Emergency Fund Would Give U. S. Air Supremacy . By GRATTAN McGROARTY United Press Staff Correspondent. ·WASHINGTON, Jan. 13.--Aviation authorities said today that President Roosevelt's request for an emergency National defense appropriation would enable the United States to gain supremacy of the air with nearly 13,000 first line planes within the next two or three years. Mr. Roosevelt, in a special message to Congress yesterday, asked for approximately $525,000,000, of which $210,000,000 would be spent in the fiscal year 1940; the remainder would be hi the form of contract authorizations to be paid for at a future date. This was in addition to more than 1,100,000,000 requested in the regular army and navy budgets for fiscal 1940. PAINTER'*! 8 DRESS SHOP" 151 E.

Aunt Het By ROBERT QU1LLEN ·13 "If Jane wonts a man, she'd better go where women are scarce. In some sections a pumpkin is just cheap cow feed, but in the cotton section I've paid seventy-five cents for a little runty one." Snyder Proposes Army Training For Graduates THE GRIM REAPER "Leadership counts today and one should cultivate the opportunities presented to _ improve one's charac- er," said Superintendent William G. /is when he addressed the High School assembly at an initiation scrv- ce'held by the National Honor Society to which nine seniors were elected. He suggested that each student set an objective and never give up until it has been reached. He said "it is time to take Stock of one's self and do the utmost to repay parents for the numerous sacrifices they avc made. Now is the time to make choices and resolve to have enough courage to stand by those resolutions you have'adopted." He commended he society on the impressiveness of .he service. Hie assembly was opened by Ceclia Sapolsky reading the Scripture to the piano accompaniment of "The Task," Ashford, by Miss Catherine Zimmerman. Thomas Soisson, vice-president, explained that the purpose of the meeting was to receive new members, who "-were selected from the upper third of the Senior class. He introduced the secretary, Sara Bailey, who read the names of Jean Sullivan, Winfred McCairns, Ger- Irude Wausaman, Jack^Willard, William Black a, George Hart,- Paul Swallop, Frank Sccan and John Barbor, who were called to the stage, where they registered and received the NHS arm bands. President Ned Shipley, in welcoming the new members, said that because of the distinguished work they "had accomplished in the Held of scholastic endeavor and demonstrated v Hlingness to cooperate as well as ability to assume leadership, you have gained the recognition of the teaching staff. This should be the first of your many outstanding accomplishments and membership in this organization should instill in you a greater degree of sportsmanship and loyalty to your school." "The Keystone and the flaming torch is the emblem of the N. H. S.,' said Mary Elizabeth VThittaker. "The keystone symbolizes strength of character expressed by four letters at the base of the emblem:' S--for scholarship, ~L--leadership, C--character and S--service. The flaming torch is significant of our purpose as its glowing light leads the way to th love of greater goals and the desire to serve with unselfish loyalty wisdom and honor." John Jackson played a coronet solo, "Willow Echoes," with Norma Elpern the piano accompaniment. Principal E. Stanley Phillips administered the pledge after which Superintendent Davis was presented. Congressman J. Buell Snyder would have 50,000 young high school graduates given a three-year course in the United Stales Army to tram as pilots, mechanics and technicians, he informed The Courier today as he voiced his support of President Roosevelt's National defense program as outlined to Congress Thursday in a request for more than $500,000,000. The congresbmin, chairman of the House Approprial ions sub-committee, said it would bi: much cheaper to have the young men in the service receivini! training than on the relief or WPA rolls. The plan, Snyder said, would be to train young men for life's work. The congressman said: "1 think the President's recommendation to Congress this afternoon (Thursday) was timely, appropriate and moderate. Those ot us who know some of the inside activities of military preparation in some of the cUctator countries would even go tarthcr than the President's recommendation. I think if \vc would take vote of the mothers in the United States they would vote that we should have every available National defense installation equipped adequately so that if their sons were called upon to defend our shores against a foreign foe or to protect the VIonroc Doctrine, they would not be slaughtered because of inadequate equipment. "This program will put tens of thousands of men to work and boost private industry. I believe my committee will provide for the $210,000,000 called for in the President's message for the fiscal year 1940. "J would go farther than the President docs in training young men for life's work, I would set up a three- year program to train 50,000 young men who are high school graduates to be pilots, mechanics or technicinns. It would be economical to do this. We have more than 1,200,000 high school graduates in the United Statts now who cannot secure pos'-tions. It would cost less to have 50,000 enlist in the Army and receive three years training than it would to have them on relief or WPA rolls. At the end of the three years they would be prepared to go out into the business world if they did not choose to stay with the Army." MRS. WILLIAM A.

D., Jan. 13.--Colonel Frank Knox, Chicago publisher and Republican vice-presidential candidate in 193G, recommended Thursday night that the G. O. P. change its policy ot high tariffs and strive for lower taxes and strong enforcement of anti-trust laws as a cure for the ills of American agriculture. He attacked the high tariff system as an artificial expedient "which raises the price of everything the farmer must buy, and consequently destroys all efforts at establishing parity in purchasing power of the farmer's dollar by loweiing prices X X." He said that of the original reasons .for the need of a high tariff, only one remained--protection of Amci- ican labor from cheap foreign standards. He said the other reasons, cost of raw materials, crude transportation facilities, lack of capital, skilled labor and skilled industrial management, all have disappeared.
