Big Air-Sea Hunt

I - - - -- -- ---- --- ---

Underway For Six
Lost Navy, Planes
27 Men Aboard
Missing Aircraft.

By The Associated Press
MIAMI, Fla., Dec. 6-Mysteriously
swallowed up in the swift dusk of the
tropics, five Navy torpedo bombers
with 14 men aboard and a sixth Navy
rescue plane with 13 crew members
were the object of a great air-sea
hunt covering thousands of square
miles off the Florida east coast to-
Dwindling hopes marked the
search, described as one of the great-
est in peace-time history, but Navy
officials said the planes had a high
degree of buoyancy and that in simi-
lar emergencies the crews had been
able to launch their life rafts "with-
out even getting their feet wet."
Great Search
Reinforced by a baiy flat-top, the
v'. S. Escort Carrier Solomons, hun-
dreds of Army, Navy and Coast
Guard planes and scores of surface
craft searched the waters on a 400-
mile front from Jacksonville in
northern Florida, to Miami in the
The front extended 150 miles out
into the Atlantic to the Bahamas,
where the Royal Air Force pressed
every available plane into the quest.
A last, flickering message of dis-
tress, sent by radio from the flight of
five avenger torpedo bombers, puz-
-led officials as the hunt intensified.
Didn't Know Position
"Have gas for 75 minutes more ...
Can't tell whether over Atlantic or
Gulf of Mexico," the message is re-
ported to have said, in effect, indicat-
ing they had been caught in a blind-
ing storm.
Commander Howard S. Roberts,
executive officer at the Fort Lauder-
dale Naval Air Station, where the ill-
starred flight began, said the airmen
were apparently blown far off their
course by strong winds.

Sorry, Don't Know
A young lady in Prof. Dunham's
History II class wanted to know
if the Roman girls weren't attract-
ed by the big brawny Teutonic men
who conquered their country. "It's
possible," replied Prof. Dunham,
"but I'm afraid we don't have any
statistics on the subject."

before the war. With the advent of
the war the University evacuated to
Claremont Ferrand, where many of
the students divided their time be-
tween studying and fighting for the
Resistance Movement. The Univer-
sity of Strassbourg resumed classes
last October under great psychologi-
cal tension. There is a major prob-
lem in transferring students and fac-

who allowed only German to be
spoken and who enforced German
A Chinese University turned bar-
racks for the enemy in the record of
the University of Tsing Hua, for-
merly located in Peiping. It was in
Peiping that war broke out in 1937.
The students of the University, de-
termined to continue their education,
moved, by foot, bicycle, boat, or any
other means they could, to Chang
Sha. Soon the Japanese caught up
with them. The students moved
again, this time to Kunming, 1,000
miles away. Kunming was within
the range of Japanese bombers. Be-
fore classes each day the students
would clear the rubble and bury the
A will to learn is about all that re-
mains of the University of Warsaw.
During the war, the students at-
tended clandestine "underground"
classes, knowing that being caught
meant the death sentence. Now the
University has resumed classes, but
the classes are held in ruined build-
ings and the equipment, what there
is of it, is at best makeshift.J

Jones To

from Percy
Enroll Here

*hi~eaftjen at lda.'I

Twelve aphasic patients from the
speech clinic at the Fort Custer annex
of Percy Jones Hospital visited the
University Speech Clinic this week.
The aphasics, who were accompan-
ied by staff members of the Fort Cus-
ter clinic, were all wounded service-
men who have lost their speech func-
tion to various degrees because of
brain lesions. One, who will be dis-
charged from the armed forces this
month, will be enrolled in the Speech
Clinic after Christmas for further
training. Others will follow as soon as
they are ready for discharge.
Miss Vivian Mowat, former Speech
Clinic assistant who earned her mas-
ter degree at the speech department
here, is the director of the Fort Cus-
ter clinic.
The Speech Clinic is now giving in-
struction to nine aphasic patients,
including five veterans.

With wire scarce and wartime calls increasing,
telephone engineers made existing pairs of long
distance wires carry nearly four times as many
calls as before. This was done through installa-
tion of additional carrier equipment, requiring
closer spacing of the wires on the line and trans-
positions at shorter intervals.
Three pairs on the Southern Transcontinental
Route were rearranged, and in a 430-mile section
this had to be done while keeping the urgently
needed wires in service all the tine. To do this,
