American Supplies Aiding Russia

below-zero temperatures, and sev-
eral feet of snow. But each morn-
ing, when the telegrams were ready
to go, so was the car.
American tanks are less notice-
able to the Russian people, since
they are assembled deep in the rear
and sent directly to the front. I
have visited an assembly point,
however, and seen hundreds of
medium and light tanks, ready to
go into action.
The first M-3 models, with a
riveted frame and fixed cannon,
proved less effective than the
welded types and mobile turret,
but since then, more modern ma-
chines have been delivered.

The Russians still prefer their
heavy KV, medius T-34 and light
T-60 tanks for major combat. They
used these principally in their
southern offensives this winter, but
American tanks, as well as the
British Mathildas and Valentines,
are doing service on other fronts.
American fighters, the Toma-
hawk, Kittyhawk and Airacobra,
are defending some of the most
important points of the Soviet
Union, including Moscow, Lenin-
grad and Murmansk. Crack pilots,
many of them wearers of the high-
est decoration, hero of the Soviet
Union, are flying them- Unani-
mously, they like them.
All these, too, I have seen at air-
ports outside Moscow. They have

had little to do there recently, for
the Germans have not raided the
capital since last April 5. That, in
itself, is a strong recommendation
of their efficiency.
American attack bombers have
not been on public display, but
they are reliably reported to have
been used effectively during the
defense of Stalingrad and the Red
Army counter-offensive.
It may be a prod to American
pride to note that the Russians
believe they have fighters, as well
as tanks, superior to anything we
have delivered to the Soviet Union.
A foreign pilot, who has flown So-
viet, American and British planes
and who is now fighting on the
Russian front, told me he agreed
the Red Air Force Yak was better
than anything else he had handled.
In addition to the principal
equipment, I have come across nu-
merous other items of American
supplies: field telephones with a
Cossack unit, woolen blankets in a
military hospital, granulated sugar
in a Red Army mess, lard on the
shelves of a Moscow store, all of it
being given good use.
.Since my return to New York, I
have heard some comment that
the Russians do not seem to real-
ize or appreciate the extent of our
effort to aid them.
They do realize it, for every state-
ment President Roosevelt or Prime
Minister Churchill has made on
this subject, complete with figures,
has been reproduced in the Soviet
press, and the Russians. are avid
newspaper readers. Those with
whom I have gone into contact
have also made clear that they
appreciate it.'
The man behind American sup-
plies to the Soviet Union is Brig.-
Gen. Philip E. Faymonville, for-
mier military attache and present
lend-lease representative in Mos-
cow. He speaks Russian fluently
and is on friendly terms with the
Soviet authorities, from Foreign
Trade Commissar Anastas Mikoy-
an, with whom he deals, on down.

"Celestial avigation" a new ex-
tra-curricular course now being of-
fered on campus, will train 21l local
civilian afir pilots to fly scientifically
by the stars.
Taught by Dr. W. Carl Rufus, act-
ing chairman of the Department of
Astronomy, this course will apply the
principles of navigation to flying. Of
a highly technical nature, "celestial
avigation" instructs pilots in the use
of a rare and valuable instrument
called the "bubble sextant."
"The only way to find one's posi-
tion on the earth-independently, is
by observation of celestial bodies,"
said Dr. Rufus. "This method is par-
ticularly useful on long-flight trips,
in night flying, and on bombing expe-
ditions. By training pilots in the use

And all other furs Every one is worthy

of the bubble sextant we have shown
them one of the shortest and easiest
ways to determine their position on
the earth's surface."
The instrument itself is small and
delicate, and will fit inside a case not
quite as large as a portable radio.
Technically, said Dr. Rufus, it should
be called an "aeronautical octant."
Its name comes from the bubble
which, when focused on a celestial
object, enables the pilot to determine
his latitudinal and longitudinal posi-
tion within ten minutes by the aid of
charts and a special timepiece.
Approved by the University War
Board and Dean Edward H. Kraus of
the College of Literature, Science,
and the Arts, this course will continue
for about eight weeks.
Nearly all of the members enrolled
in the course are experienced pilots;
some have earned their living for
years by flying. One man is a com-
mercial pilot who has had 8,500 hours
in the air. Two other students are
test pilots from Willow Run. Six
are women who have secured their
pilots' licenses. Mrs. W. Carl Rufus,
known as 'flying grandma' has done
transcontinental flying. She is also
enrolled in the course.
The class meets at 8:30 p.m. every
Monday in the' observatory.
