A member of Mittcrands staff aid if the statements attributed to \tarquie in Moscow are confirm- d, the mission chief "will be dismissed and expelled from he army as soon as he gets back." Marquie was quoted as assailing his government for a "malicious attitude" to- vard Russia. His statement grew out of Frances and Russia's ex- f war veterans, who said he had Francois Nitterand, minister war veterans, who said ho had >ulsion of each ion missions. other's rcpatria- planes. He said instruments should be so simple that at least every other American coUld learn to be an expert pilot. ' The result, Fitts siaid, would he not only the saving of lives and valuable equipment; .and also a speed-up of pilot training which would be vital in wartime. An air force survey of pilot errors showed that 50 per cent involved substitution of one instrument for another. Iii 18 per cent, the pilots made wrong adjustments and in another 18 per cent they simply forgot what to do. In six per cent, the pilots did the opposite of what they intended to do, and in three per cent they used a control they did not' mean to touch. Three per cent of the so.- called errors were made because the pilot did not reach the control he wanted to use. : Fills said instruments must be | designed so that they can be manipulated easily and without pulling the pilot under abnormal "strain. One experiment proved that it took trained pilots 7.1 seconds to read the standard altimeter dial. And 11.7 per cent of the readings were wrong. Error in reading altitude is a frequent cause of crashes Fills said. Fills said the pilot's eye scans mtruments at the rate of two a second. This makes for confusion.

Wohiut HOPE ACROSS FROM POSTOFFICE Phone 709 suit seeking $50,000 from suspended City Attorney Jay Rowland and! two co-defendants. i Presumably, if he wasn't mayor, I then he still isn't. I The allegation was contained in j an answer filed by Attorney C. I Floyd Huff to the suit, which seeks to recover money which Rowland testified at his two recent trials for bribery that he received from Lewis W. Cherry, Little Rock bond broker, and split with Alderman Frank Moody and fprmer Alderman Sam G. Smith in connection with the city of Hot Springs' purchase of its waterworks in 1944. Cherry's firm handled a bond issue with which the city financed the purchase. Rowland was convicted at his second trial of accepting bribes from gamblers. Huff's answer seeks dismissal of the suit on several gounds of alleged irregularity, among them the allegation that Ricks, a plaintiff, was "not the mayor when the (city council) resolution authorizing the suit was adopted or when the action was filed, the mayor's office being vacant." The pleading did not elaborate on this point. After Ricks announced as a candidate for mayor last spring, assertions were made that he was not a legal resident of the city. These he denied, and he was elected last April by a large vote. Ricks recalled the size of this vote when appraised of the pleading and added that for a man who wasn't holding the mayor's job he'd "spent a lot of sleepless nights' in connection with it. Huff, an attorney for former Mayor Leo P. McLaughlin, attempted last week as acting chancellor to hear a suit seeking removal of a Ricks appointee, George Callahan, as chief of police. He became embroiled in a jurisdictional dispute with Circuit Judge Clyde H. Brown. The dispute still is officially unsettled, awaiting a supreme court decision, but Chancellor Sam W. Garratt has returned to Hot Springs and assumed jurisdiction in the case — and no one is contesting his right .to hear it. i .
