MAPLE STREET TEL. 3507 Says It's Fair To Shoot Down Parachuting Pilots Washington, Sept. 2G—(UP)—One of the leading Kuropeixr. ui:- aces— Major George Prctldy of Greensboro, North Carolina—says it is fair game '-o shoot enemy pilots parachuting- down on their own turrity. .13 u I he has never done so him- SL-lf .and he believes that half of ihc American pilots refrain from rtuiug so. P rudely points out that allowing the enemy pilots to escape only moans thai they may be up again the next day. But the'ma- jor adds: "There is something that holds' you back from shooting a doi'enseloss enemy." Preddy points out tho situation i.-; different if the enmy tighter pilot parachutes onto territory whom he could be imprisoned. There's no reason to- shoot him then, because he's likely to be out of the war, jujyway. Freddy has parachuted twice—once into the English channul .and once in a soi-thwest Pacific jungle. He has shot down six German ilghturs in a single combat. And has ;i total of 23 and-a-half planes destroyed in aerial combat—plus live on the ground.

The Bell System went into action with a special service which had been prepared for just such an emergency. Four hours after the call came from the.Army, a complete telephone exchange, weighing 15 tons and packed in 152 separate containers, was on its way to an airfield. Five army transport planes carried it swiftly to the camp. The fighting forces at home and abroad have first call on new telephone equipment these days' . . . and they need vast quantities of it.
