Some ielea of the long-term im-
portance of this work can be gained
from a. recent statement by the Ca-
nadian Air Vice Marshal Harold Ed-
wards. Edwards, anticipating a
shortage of manpower for war tasks,
declared in New York that "as a con-
sequence we are developing the wom-
an's air force."
The Vice-Marshal made a special
point of dispelling any suggestion
that women be used in combat work,
but he pointed out that "we are com-
missioning women officers and eI-
listing women to occupy the same po-
sitions that men occupy today."
Edwards stressed the possibility of.
placing women in air mechanics

CPT girls are receiving six 'hours
of training. The local group. will
put in a total. of 72 hours, on navi-
'gational and mechanical phases of
flying with 18 hours in Civil Air reg-

Instead of choosing the Chopin
ballade to end the program, as might
commonly be supposed, and which
is a brilliant enough number, he
chose the Beethoven sonata in A-flat.
His reason for this is, that the
Chopin ends with such an air of fin-
ality, while the Beethoven concludes
on a hopeful, joyous note, and is more
apt to leave music continuing in the
listener's mind afterward. "The Bee-

For FM At Its Best


For World-Wide Radio Reception
For High-fidelity Record Reproduction

On many of the defense projects encountered by the Bell
System, the work sheets -showing telephone facilities
needed and time allowed-would make a good, conservative
engineer's hair stand on end.
For example, take the Navy's huge new air base near
Corpus Christi, Texas, which covers 14,500 acres, includes 29
separate flying fields and 481 buildings. Closely connected
ivith the base are Defense Housing projects for 1700 families.
Imagine the complex problems involved in planning tele.
phone facilities for this new "city" where formerly there
were sand dunes-in obtaining and installing miles and miles
