Discuss Chain of U. S.-British Air Bases In N. Africa LONDON, Jan. ' 22--U.1!--Con- struction of a chain of Anglo- American air basas on the Mediterranean coast of Cyrenaica. the eastern section o£ Libya in North Africa, is under discussion "at a very high level," informed military Sources reported today. Informants said they understood the talks between the American and British governments were initiated by the United Slates. ~They said several bases were contemplated between Benghazi and Tobruk, the port cities that were the scenes of bitter fighting during the North African campaigns. The proposed bases, informants said, would be smaller than the transport base which the United States is reopening at Mellaha, outside Tripoli in western Tripoli- tania, the western part of Libya. They were described as being "more in the nature of tactical bases," IntcrcolicKh (e Billiards Harvard and Ya.'e played the flrst Intercollegiate billiard match at Worcester, Mass., in 1800.

But I admire veterans like Dick Ncwcomb ... who's 23, but tfoing to college under the G.I. Bill of Rights. Intends to be a sheep farmer--but a better- informed, more scientific farmer, with more know-how! And veterans like Dick aren't letting anything interfere. What little relaxation they allow themselves is in the form of needed exercise, or books, or conversation and an occasional «lass of beer with frlfrmls. Seems as if, just by liavinj; their education postponed, they've put a higher value on i t . . . a n d on thinfcs like temperance (that tfass of beer, for instance), understanding, and good citizenship. And from where I sit, when Dick Rets his sheepskin--he won't have lost much time. He'll be an even better farmer than his Dad. (Exactly what Dad wanted 1) a Copyright, 19IS, United States Brewers Foundation WASHINGTON'--(N'EA)--Presi- dent Truman's Air Policy Commission report, "Survival in the Air', Age," makes some of the gloom- est reading in a long time. It says the United States had better get ·eady for a war by Jan. 1, 1943, which is called A-Day. The honorable Commission says we can blunder into a war before .hat time. But the five-year interval between then and now is all the time in which the U. S. may be reasonably sure of having a monopoly on the atomic bomb. If tnis report hattyeen written by a bunch of admirals, generals and representatives of the aircraft industry, it might be discounted as so much propaganda from the militarists and the manufacturers who want a subsidized industry. That the report was written by five distinguished, and presumably disinterested, private citizens after exhaustive investigation is merely evidence of the seriousness of the situation. The five were. Chairman Thomas K Finletter, lawyer and special assistant to the Secretary of State from 1941 to 1944. Vice Chairman George P. Baker was an Air Force colonel during the war, then head of international aviation affairs in the State Department and is no%v with the Harvard business school. The three members were Denver newspaper publisher Palmer Hoyt, Dun and Bradstreefs Authur D. Whiteside and Jahn A. McDone of the Joshua Hendy Iron Works, who replaced Henry Ford. - Couple their forebodings with the heaw preparedness outlays m the President's-budget-' message, and you really get the glooms. The Finletter Commission estimates that, for the past year, military expenditures have been rough- Iv $3,000,000,000 for the Army, 53,000,000,000 for the sea-going Navy, and $4,000.000,000 for tne Air Force plus naval aviation. This $10,000,000,000 total, says the Commission, should be increased to $11,600,000,000 for the calendar year 1948, and $13,200,000 000 for 1949. 0£ this last total, $5,500,000.000 should go for a strong defensive and counterattacking air force. In short, air power must be the future first line of defense, instead of a strong Navv The projected total cost of Armv Navv and Air Force in 1952 would bc"$18,qOO.OOOO,QOO. All this talk of increased mili- Uarv appropriations will probably be'used by the Moscow Radio, 'Henrv Wallace and the American Communists as evidence that the U S is preparing for another war. Such arguments will have to be taken cautiously. £ * * The Finletter Commission apparently appioachuu iu JOD with i t h e idea that it wanted to work 1 for peace. But the farther the 'Commission pursued its studies the more convinced it became that the onlv way to keep the peace was to 'make" the U. S. strong in the air. The outlay it recommends i for building up U. S airpowcr is j therefore the price of keeping the i PC If CC this is correct, it leads to a ! number of sobering thoughts. If '.the U. S. taxpayer is ever to get out from under this . burden of .maintaining huge military establishments, the U. S. S° vcrnm £nt ' must dedicate itself to a number of parallel courses of action. I It must work still harder to- I wards international control of ·atomic energy and the outlawing 'of the atomic bomb.
