PAGE g-NAUGATUCK NEWS <C QXN.V MONDAY, APKtt 9, 1951 WASHINGTON COLUMN . By Iff^R EPSON NEA Staff Correspondent Diplomats* Meeting Spotlights Hemisphere Defense Problems Washingtori-(NEA)- When the United Nations asked for military assistance for Korea, all it got from the Latin-American countries was one frigate from Colombia.'After a oouple of- months training on the U. a. west coast, that. Colombian frigate is now on its way to Korean waters. So give Colombia full credit Bolivia Gosta Rica, El Salvador, Panama offer volunteers, but none has been accepted. It is not to the particular discredit of the other-Latin-American'coun- tries that they offered no more Fifteen of them did offer economic aid Df a kind—money from Uruguay and Brazil, sugar from Cuba, beans from Mexico and ao on. The reason they didn't offer more actual military aid is that they didnt have it to give. And that sad fact is the main reason for concentration on .the subject of military cooperation at the Council of American Republics' Foreign Ministers now going on in Washington. Something drastic has to be done lo Bolster western hemisphere de- fences so that the U. S. and Canada don't carry a disproportionate share of the burden. i» J°1 ay ' ijter-American defense is largely a thing of paper. The Inter- American Treaty of Reciprocal As- H^ a "fn ?51 vid .

Eventually, the Brizilians got one division in the European fighting and the Mexicans had an air squadron in the Philippines. But if the 'Latin-American countries had been able to man their own defenses completely, It would have freed 100,000 or more U. S. troops for 'duty in other places. At is was they were tied down to Latin-American bases for the duration. The matter of equipping Latin- American forces :ls another sad story. At the end of the war, there were some general staff conferences on supplying Latin-American armies with U. S. surpluses. Their hopes ran high. The way it worked out, $146 million worth of supplies were sold to them for some $38 million. It was less than 10 per cent of what they expected to get. U. S. SURPLUSES FEIX SHORT From the expiration of the Surplus Property Disposal Act to the passage of the Military Defense Assistance Act in October, 1949, there was no authorization for anms aid to Latin-America. Even then,the original MDAP Act required payment of full cost for equipment furnished at replacement values. An amendment in July of last year permitted U. S. -surpluses to be sold at 10 per cent -of cost. But by then U. S. prices were so high the sister republics couldn't afford to buy A / ld f ince ? u} ?.' wh . en the Korean simply haven't HOW IKE'S COMMAND SHAPES UP all its own building .m Charles L.

There was no testimony on local conditions that might bring greater citizen pressure for cleaning up than was in effect before the committee arrived. _ Currently a band of corrupt police officers who have permitted gambling joints to. operate in .half a dozen spots are under fire. The town's pressure is focused steadily at them so the really big-time operators have to seek more profitable ventures elsewhere. From Al Ostrow, San Francisco News: . Illegal gambling is still a multimillion dollar industry in these - 'ts — and still going full blast although a few big operations have been seriously crimped.

Benefit cancer card pratv sored by Naugatuck Woman ;S American Legion Home, 8 p Wednesday, April IS (Courtesy of Providence Journal-Bulletin) VC-12, a highly classified Navy All Weather" squadron at Quonset Point, R.I., is exploring the capabilities of its flying radar stations as fingers probing far at sea on continental air defense line. Edward J. Sodlosky, Airman Apprentice, son of Mr .'and Mrs. E. J Sod- losky, 276 North Main Street, Union City, and a graduate of the Naugatuck High school, is serving with •chis squadron. A composite unit of the Navy in the air, VC-12 is one of the largest squadrons on the East Coast, nearly as big as a full air group, and has as its chief mission; Airborne Early Warning, the tracking on its radar scopes of enemy movements on the sea or in the air. Within the fuselages of their powerful, single-engine planes, packed with the latest in radar equipment, VC- 12's Quonset trained flying teams, hand-picked men from the Navy's field of electronics, are aptly called the eyes of the fleet. Quonset airmen fly above surface task forces, ranging far, and wide with their radar, watching scopes in -their sealed cockpits for any trace of enemy ships or aircraft. Any finds are sent by a special transmitted directly to the fleet for reading. These radar teams were first used extensively in the.initial submarine attack 'scares early in the present emergency and have flown with task forces in Korean waters. Besides probing for enemy craft, they also help task forces circumvent stormy areas and recently one plane's team searched .out a lost aircraft in the Atlantic. New VC-12's teams have entered new "fields," cooperating with the Air Force by "Exploring the capabilities of A.E.W. for use in conjunction with the air defense of the United States.' A.E.W. teams now operating in both hemispheres call X. Ju r horae - s °.uadron and at the Rhode Island base, fresh teams are going through rigorous training programs in hangar class rooms, handling radar gear and making endless practice hops. Pilot and the two-man crew spend weeks training together, establishing precise teamwork and top confidence in the abilities of each other, training that goes on day and night, fair or foul weather. Two teams usually work together one doing.the tracking and the other observing the effort or posing as the killer" plane. The squadron's men are so thoroughly schooled in their work that they are capable of repairs and adjustments on their radar equipment while airborne. All wear proudly on their flying jackets the squadron's emblem, a si houette of a radardome guppy with wings and a pair of carrier mnding officer's signal paddles, with green center beneath.
