SATURDAY, OCT015KK 4, 1047 U.S. Navy Relies, On Sunday Pilots Admiral Commends Men Serving in Ready Reserve Units By MAUREEN OOTHLIN d'nilcd Press Staff C'orrp.s|nmclinit) WASHINGTON, Oct. 4. <UPi- Ki-ar Acim. Irvins M. McQufoton, spcciiil adviser fol 1 thr. Nnvy'.s Air Reserve, snid today tl>;it tills country's hopes of success la another emergency rest largely with her "Sunday pilots.'* McQuiston referred specifically to 1,000 'hot" filers who went from World War II into the Navy's ready reserve. They're still hot cnnu<;]i, he said, to "mobilize this afternoon If Ihry had to." "You can't have national .^eeur- ily without aviation," McQuiston said, "i\nd naval aviation couldn't exist without these boys." Ninety per cent of them were combat pilots, according to the admiral. Now they spend their weekends losing eiLjht hours-a-mnnth thine tune at 22 air stations scattered over the country. McQuiston said 87 per cent of the pilot personnel quota is filled but the Navy wants still more fliers. It wants to sot up reserve programs at Akron, O., Buffalo, N. Y.. Louisville. Kv., and Portland, Ore., where there are heavy potentials of reserve pilots. According to the best estimates, the proposed expansion would take another $5.000.000 in the Navy's 1?49 appropriations. "But," McQniston said, "it's !ho most economical way to Ret national defense." The air stations are set up on existing landing fields. A croup of pilots use one plane. flyin» it in shifts. In case of war, part of the reserves would be assigned to combat duty immediately, he said. The rest would he used lo man the reserve fleet as soon as it could lie brought out—a matter of atom 30 days. Meanwhile, the Navy's much lar£- •cr corps of voluntary reserves would vo into intensive trniliin«. The voluntary pilots get two weeks of training a year under the present program. Tile ready reserves are a lightly . knit force. Although they Ket less training Ihnn Ihe regular Navy fliers, McQuiston said, they are organized into squadrons that parallel (hose of the regulars.
