Aviatrix Ruth Chatterton 'Flies' The Link

Women Fliers May Be Called
In Next War, Actress Declares

The blue-eyed, notedly feminine'
Ruth Chatterton, striding back in
slacks from her visit to the aeronau-
tical engineering department Tues-
day, declared that if the United States
enters the war women flyers will be
expected to offer their services-and
that she will be among the first to
Star of both stage and screen, Miss
Chatterton, who is appearing here
this week in the Dramatic Season's
"Pygmalion", spoke as a well-knownI
pilot of six years standing, accredited
with 1,000 flying hours.
Not Aerial Combat
"You can't expect women to take
part in aerial combat, of course,"
Miss Chatterton explained, "but forI
women with nerve there is important
work to be done. Like taxiing .
and delivering planes . . . and ground
work. In this way an enormous in-
crease in manpower could be counted
upon for the actual fighting."
Vitally interested in aviation, Miss
Chatterton, accompanied by her lead-
ing man, Barry Thomson, and Alan
Bott, '42E, president of the University
Flying Club, was conducted on a tour
Winston Will Talk
On Current War,
"Is this a War for Freedom?" will
be the topic of a lecture to be de-
livered by Henry Winston, national
secretary of the Young Communist
League, under the sponsorship of
the Karl Marx Society, at 4 p.m. to-
morrow in the Union.
Winston is one of America's lead-
ing Communists, according to Anna-
bel Hill, '41SM, president of the So-
ciety. During the past year he has
addressed Communist rallies, speak-
ing on the same programs as Earlj
Browder. This will be the second'
lecture held under the sponsorship
of the Society.

Long and i Lithe




of the pilot training apparatus at
the East Engineering Building by
Prof. Edward Stalker.
The trip was highlighted by her
inspection of the Link, an airplane-
like contrivance for training that
never leaves the ground. Both Miss
Chatterton and Thomson, members of
the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Asso-
ciation, took their turn in 'flying'
the Link by instruments. Although
she has not taken up a plane for
three years, Miss Chatterton acquit-
ted herself with credit, according to
Professor Stalker, expressing amaze-
ment at the sensitivity of the Link.
She promised to return for a month
of instruction this summer "if hum-
anly possible."
Aviation Bill
In an interview preceding the tour,
the surprisingly politically minded
actress revealed that she had hoped,
along with the late Amelia Earhart,
famous aviatrix, to see through Con-
gress a bill that would aid airminded
youth in America to keep flying.
The measure, in brief, would pro-
vide to young flyers passing a rigid
test a government subsidy, to pay
half the price of a plane, which would
have to be repaid in five years. This
extension of flying privileges to civil-
ians would make available more flyers
for defense and better pilots.
