THURSDAY, MARCH 20, 1941 American Pilots Help Canada Build Air Armada BLYTHEVILLB. (ARK.) COURIER NEWS By MAJOR THOMAS WAYLLVG NBA Service Correspondent OTTAWA.—Some of the most prized feathers in the British lion's newly-sprouted f wings were grafted from the American eagle. The Fighting Eagles of the western world, the U. S. Army and Navy Air Forces, are not, in the war over Britain—not as international law recognizes belligerency. But American planes are there. And so are volunteer American pilots and observers and bombers and g u n n e r s. Over 1000 more young American pilots are n o \v completing their training here in Canada. In addition, and perhaps moreim- i'owerportant, are -the 500-odd volunteers from the United States who arc also here as instructors in the Royal Canadian Air Force, major unit in Britain's Commonwealth Air Training scheme.

Since then tne eliorts or United States industry have relieved t,hc pressure ot tne need for planes— crews. They all want -to fly and do battle, but, when the weeding out process starts and they realize they cannot make the age or physical limits, they stay on to do a ground job, which has" become a great change from the days, not: ., viM , nnrf - f Mln ,. .-•—•-•- nuieri more man a year ago wiu-n ; P e War in tho air - iMuny of the young Americans :f. their commissions without the lew pianes wnicn cotud be o^ cameo soucn of tne borcier nad to be towed across cne international oounaary.

C. Power: "At the I end -pf January 1941 we were just four men better than double what WQ promised." Major Power went on: "We doubled, then re-doubled the number of Air Training .schools. We have speeded up in every direction;* For diplomatic reasons Major Power doesn't discuss the advent . of the Americans into the Air Training plan, but he's delighted. They conic of their own .free will and ^ receive a welcome that r warms their hearts. They don't jfifiave to take any oath oi" allegi- 'ance. If they are physically fit, competent, and want to take a '•rack at Hitler, there's a place for them. DIFFICULTIES AT THE START The Air Training plan .started From nothing. Canada hud u scut.-' tercd few planes at the outbreak of war—till obsolete. .She had no airplane industry before the war. Now Canadian industry has risen to the occasion a.nd is turning out Hurricane.'? and every other type. (The Hurricanes arc shot over to England where they can do the most, immediate good.) The Air 'J.'naniru: pUw now covens Cnnacio lik? a radio network. .From coast to coast arc flying schools, nil- schools, schools, servers ) gunnery difficulties which would have discouraged anyone less forceful than Major Power. "L'Audace, tonjours, 1'audace" is his slogan and he has put it into effect. The planes needed for the Air Training Plan were on the way out to Canada when the Nazis struck last fall. They were turned back and Major Power youngsters tne present air battles call lor. Tne men wno flew tne OKI Jennies of Power. "So we're giving her what she wants. A fighter now is worth two next fall, so we've yonc all out to gel. the men ready. We have as many now as we originally planned to have ready by next August." American planes and American volunteers have been of material help in this scheme. And when, as and if thr Luftwaffe strikes, tTio Empire airmen, with their American buddies, will be on tho spot— watching, waiting, striking- It is reported that, by mid-Febru- \ __ ... ary, liMl, the entire $40,000,000 pro- cotud not fly the swift, gram for construction and I inhuming comoat planes of today. j provement of 200 airports vital to .
