Air Force Hasn't Yet Opened,Door, But.. Northwut Arkansas TIMES, Sun., Oct. 27, 1974 FAVETTEVILLE, ARKANSAS Fighter Pilot's Job Beckons To UA Girl ROTC Cadet By KICK 1'KNDKKGUASS TIMES S t u f f Writer The young KOTC cadet giggled, looked around the donnitory room full of dainties and dolls and smelling of per- f u m e and makeup and said, "What I really want to do is be an Air Force jet pilot." The cadet, Nancy Callaway, is perfectly serious about her life dream. She already Is committed to an Air Force career and is convinced t h a t with CADET NANCY GALLOWAY . projects an image still ncio to the Air Force ROTC some push for a change, the Air Force may in her career allow women to pilot the thundering jet fighters, still officially the domain of men. Miss Callaway, a Junior at.lht University of Arkansas, recently was awarded the Air Force ROTC scholarship--a two-year full tuition grant that will pay for the rest of her time in college, minus the last semester- FIRST SCHOLARSHIP Before Miss Callaway's name appeared on the scholarship awards list, a woman's name had never been mentioned in that capacity at the University of Arkansas. "I think .the Air Force is changing, certainly faster than the other military services," she said. "If they can make progress here, I don't sec why they can't some day allow me to fly fighter jets." She has some definite Ideas about military service in general: benefits and standards for women in the military should be raised so a 'hotter class' of women will be attracted to the uniform; women should be allowed to serve in combat; if there has to be a draft, wo men should be drafted, but to her, there reaily shouldn't be a draft in the first place. Miss Callaway, whose only experience with the military is what she has learned in two years of Air Force ROTC. wil graduate in 1976 with a degree in mechanical engineering. When she g r a d u a t e s , she wil automatically become a second lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force "I hope I'll get a duty assign ment right off." she said "What I want from the Ai Force is a job designing ail craft, hut, of course, they couh send me, anywhere they wan to do anything they want." She hopes eventually to into the Air Force--NAS/ program as a design engineer. "My friends arc ahvay trying to talk me out of a ca reer in the military, hut I know what I'm getting into." sh said. "At least I'm not unde the delusion that it's all peache id .cream and 'Wild Blua onder' and all that. I mean, ght now I really want to get U aircraft engineering and ic Air Force is without a doubt 10 best place to get a further ducation and then get a job 3r sure." In a time when big aircraft rms are hard pressed to keep ] the black, an Air Force areer may be the only secure ob available for an aero- nautical engineer. And since Miss Callaway's ultimate g o a l is to work on such, programs as the proposed space shuttle and other spaco research, the Air Force may be the only way in. "What I really want eventually is a feeling that I've accomplished something...you know, look at something and know it was my idea, my design," she said. ' Miss Callaway often wonders just what It will be like as a woman in the military structure, traditionally male oriented and dominated and with little p l a n n i n g in the overall system for women. "The Air Force really hasn't learned how to handle women yet," she said. "For instance, all it takes for a woman to get into ROTC is for her to take the test, and at that she only has to take a small section of it. "When I took the test I completed the thirig in about half an hour, while the guys had stuff that kept them two hours. Then later I was told it didn't matter how I scored, because any college girl that a p p l i e d w a s automatically accepted. I don't think that's going to assure the Air Force Reds Eye European Countries By WILLIAM L. RYAN A News Analyiest While Soviets and American eaders. talk a detente, the So- iet-Communist party exhibits craving for political turn- bouts in Europe, eyeing in Â·articular such countries as taly, Portugal, Spain and Greece. Soviet hopes could hardly be made plainer than was done a veek ago when 27 Communist parties--from all the Soviet Ioc and Western Europe--met n Warsaw to plan an all-Eu.- opcan Communist conference lometime before mid-1975. Pravda carried a long account of an address in Warsaw jy Boris Ponomarev, and he eft a strong impression that .he . Soviet party regards de- .ente as a Highway to Commu- list fortune in Europe. Ponomarev, now 69, is a par- .y secretary, veteran of the Stalin era. For 40 years he has been involved with inter national Communist planning. Pravda, as the official Soyie party voice and transmission belt for the line around the world, carries such material tc inform and enlighten parties in the bloc and abroad about tac tics and strategy in the inter national, movement. In Communist language "de mocracy and progress" synonyms for the Soviet bran of socialism. "Workers' move- icnt" means the Communist movement. "Liberation" means Communist-oriented struggle. People" means Communist arty. "Forces of peace" and uch all mean pro-Soviet elements, and "imperialism" neans the American and Wst- neans the American and West- rn systems. Now let's see what Ponoma- ev was telling the others. What happened in Portugal nd Greece, he said, had "very ;reat meaning for liberation all anti-im- movements 11 Europe and for all for whom he causes of democracy and rogress are dear." In Spain, .e said, an "antifacist stuggle" vas developing. Ho profssed Measure at events in Italy. In Portugal, trie Communists have emerged as a strong force n the backwash of an author- tarian regime. In Greece after recent events involving CypruF and the Fall of the dictorship anti-Americanism has been widespread and the Communisi party has been legalized. In Sp.ain, Generalissimo Francisco Franco is aged and fragile and passing can signal turbu lence. Italy is in economii chaos approaching anarchy am the Communists, a strong and disciplined force, are demanding a significant role in government. That's most of tha northern eer of the Mediterranean, has .'s little wonder Secretary of late Henry A. Kissinger has oundcd worried about that area. What should the Communists [o now? Ponomarev said there are great prospects to Influence svcnts "in the interests of peace, the workers' movement and all toilers." He noted that while the capi- .alists struggle with conflicts and problems created by "irV 'iation, energy crisis, agricultural policies, the sharpening of social relations and the scope of mass movements," the Communists are more and more ready to act. Tha strategy now, he in- GOLD Top Prices Paid Far Old Gold and Jewelry. Underwood's 611W. Dickson, Fayettevilli Monday Is Ladies' Day The Ladies Are Taking Over The Store!
