Contribution Expected'
On the word of Canadian Air Min-
ister Charles G. Power, the confer-
ence is not expected to produce dis-
cussions of the higher strategy, but
will strive for pooling of manpower,
as aircraft are pooled, despite na-
tional pride and differences of lan-
guages and customs.
Canada is expected to make a val-
uable contribution to such a system
because since Sept. 26, 1939, the gov-
ernment and Royal Canadian Air

and the combined demands of the
government and private industry are
greater than the universities can
According to Prof. Kenneth K.
Landes, of the Department of Geol-
ogy, "Geologists, unlike members of
needed in the military services but
are needed in the services of supply."
Although the United States holds
first rank among mineral-produc-
ing couintries, there are a number of
mineral resources essential to the
war effort in which this country is
deficient. For the past several
months the entire staff of the United
States Geological Survey has been
engaged in searching for supplies of
manganese, quicksilver, tin, tungsten,
chromium, mica and other strategic
minerals, both in this country and
in Latin America.
Many more able and trained men
-are needed by the Geological Survey
in its work. In order to obtain more
geologists, the Civil Service Commis-
,,v11 recently realaxed its regulations
concerning assembled examinations.
Now any graduate geologist can get
on their payrolls by merely filling otit,
