Bombers ProtectI Landing Craft Nearing Cape Gloucesler

Fearless Reporter Rides in
Nse of Bomber To Get Story

Associated Press Correspondent
Jan. 23.-If you have any tendencies
toward claustrophobia, don't ride in
the plexiglass nose of a Boston light
bomber. You feel like a lonely por-
poise stuffed into a gold fish bowl.
I rode there yesterday to get an
eyewitness yarn on the landings be-
hind the German lines up the west-
ern Italian coast. We were bombing
Frosinone-a major reinforcement
road junction.
After I got up inside I buckled on
the big seatpack parachyte and then
added a heavy "flakvest" which is a
steel-lined piece of equipment simil-
ar 'to a :baseball catcher's body-pro-
tector. Even before I fastened the
safety belt, I couldn't wriggle.
"In case-ha, ha,-we should have
any trouble, how would I get out?" I
asked, laughing lightly to show my
careless disregard for danger. Sgt.
Lee Duncan, the assistant crew chief
from Portersville, Calif., entered in-
to the spirit of the moment.
"Well, I Aoi't k~now, ha, ha," he
said, "there's an'emergency escape
hatch above you but you can't get
out that in flight or you'd break
your back. That's just for use in
case of a crash landing-you know
In as belly landing the nose probab-
ly woulb be all smashed up, ha,
ha. -"
He went on cheerfully to explain
that if I had to bail out I would have
to (1) take off the flak armor, (2)
undo the safety belt, (3) pick up the'
folding floor over the lower escape
hatch, (4) grab the emergency lever
on the hatch-itself, (5) lower myself
downwith my back to the slipstream
'or you'll break your back there,
too," (6) hang there carefully to be
sure I fell straight down and not in-
to one of the props whirling at arms
length on either side, (7) and let go.
"Do you think I can get through
there with a chute-in time?"
"Oh, some of them do," he said.
"I never talked to anyone whoI
With that, the crew chief, Tech.'
Sgt. :Melvin H. Doehrman of Fort
Wayne, nd., handed"me my steel
helmet and Pfc. 'Rudolph Bellande,
of Los Angeles, the other assistant
crew chief, locked the escape hatch
and the three of them stepped back,
their faces masked with those cheer-
ful hospital sick-room grins. I show-
ed my teeth back at them.
We had -just learned that Frosin-
one was so "hot with flak that a
whole bunch of A36 invaders had

To make a long story not too
much longer, we had a "milk run"
-uneventful mission-no planes
attacked us and what little flak
a ppeared was fired at other for-
mnations and we successfully block-
ed the road at Frosinone.
So, after the never-ceasing thrill
of a takeoff, I listened to the pilot
and gunners chatting. The talk
eased the lonely locked-room isola-
tion of the greenhouse-as did the
magnificent view of the successful
Allied landings on the coast.
Not until the landing was I again
unpleasantly aware of the closeness
of the nose. Then, when I saw the
ground crew waiting, I waved to
them airily.
"Milk run," I said lightly, "just a
milk run."

Comedy Will
ie Staged, by
Play Productiont
Shakespeare's "The Comedy of'
Errors" is now being cast by Play'
Production of the speech department
and will be staged at 8:30 p.m., Feb.
9 through 12 and at 2:30 p.m., Feb.
12 in the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
One of the most popular Shake-
spearean comedies for production,
"The Comedy of Errors" treats the
farcical situations occasioned by the
confusion centering around two sets
of twins. The twins, Antipholus of
Syracuse and Antipholus of Ephesus,
and their twin servants, the two
Dyomios, find enough trouble to keep
any number of twins busy.
To top it all off, romantic compli-
cations set in for both sets of twins:
which adds greatly to the general.
Tickets for all the performances'
will be placed on sale at the theatre'
box office Feb. 9 with mail orders.
being received before that time.
his use of the rifle, automatic rifle,
machine gun and bayonet.
Sgt. Yankoff was at Pearl Harbor'
when the Japs bombed it. He was on
shore at the time and watched the
enemy planes dropping their bombs.'
He was put in charge of a Jap lieu-
tenant who swam to shore from a'
suicide submarine. After some Amer-
ican soldiers had captured the Jap,
Sgt. Yankoff took him to Army head-
quarters for questioning.
Sgt. Yankoff says that the Ha-
waiian Islands are the best place
America has for training soldiers.
He found that conditions there were
most like the 'conditions on the vari-
ous islands where he later fought.

The English Language Institute,
started three years ago under a grant
from the Rockefeller Foundation, is{
now working as a round-the-year1
ThetInstitute began as an experi-
ment in the teaching of English as a
foreign language. Prof. Charles C.
Fries, director of the Institute, said,
"We found many students coming to
the Universitywith practically no
knowledge of English. Our method
of work," he continued, "is to take
the advances made in linguistic sci-
ence and the research done in En-
glish and Spanish and bring them to
bear upon the practical problems of
teaching." The courses conducted in
the summer were formerly merely a
means of testing the research.
This Rockefeller-Michigan experi-
ment was concluded last summer.
However, government agencies which
had sent Latin-American scholars to
the Institute for training in English
were very much impressed with the
work and requested this fall that the
training be continued as a round-'
the-year project. The Regents gave
their approval and this year a series
of four eight-week courses in English
is being conducted.
Prof. Fries said Basic English is
not being utilized because "we believe
that the vocabulary materials used
should be adapted to the particular
background experience and interests
of the people being taught."
The Institute is the only one of
its kind in the country. Prof. Fries
said he believed the University
would do a great deal more lan-
guage teaching in the future, but
that it would be largely in the
summer months.
The English Language House at
2006 Washenaw is an important part
of the Institute. Students living there
are required to speak English and re-
ceive practice in informal conversa-
tion. Prof. Leo L. Rockwell from Col-
gate University and his wife direct
the House. During the three years in
which the Institute and House have
been in existence 20 of the Latin
American nations have been repre-
Residents of the House gain a

States. Prof. Rockwell said of this,
"Some have considered the sympa-
thetic understanding they have gain-
ed of their neighbors' problems
through personal acquaintance with
citizens of their sister nations as of
almost as great importance as their
progress in English."
Speaking of the aims of the
Hcuse Prof. Rockwell said, "The
Hcuse attempts to give a fair pic-
ture of United States life and cul-
ture. Without any attempt at def-
inite propaganda idealizing North
American civilization, members of
the staff attempt to counterbal-
ancethe grossly distorted notions
of the United States spread by
American movies and many tour-
ists, by exemplifying and discuss-
ing some of the less sensational
habits of normal Americans."
Students in the Institute at the
present time represent a large num-
ber of the .atin-American nations.

from Santiago. Upon returning to
Chile Dr. Alessandri will ,be the head
