WAF GrowthI
To Start Soon
Col. May Stresses
Strength of Women
The war of the sexes will soon
be in full swing in the Air Force.
The number of women in this
branch of the armed service is
expected to triple in the next six
months, and that means stiff
competition in Officers Candidate
School, said Col. Geraldine P.
May, director of WAF.
THE NUMBER of women Col.
May commands was restricted by
law to 4,000 until June, but she
disclosed that they have been re-
cruiting WAFs at the rate of about
500 a month since then.

ed more than two percent of the
authorized strength of the Air
Force, we hope nearly to triple
our strength this Spring, de-
pending on training facilities,"
she added.
Col. May gives several good rea-
sons why servicemen should never
underestimate the power of a
military woman.

graduating class for Air Force

the head of the present class."

the WAFs, Col. May took up the
matter of the blue shirts recent-
ly assigned to Air Force men
along with the new blue uni-
"Wesdidn't quite like that col-
or of blue, so we sort of scouted
around and found this light blue
Oxford cloth for ours;" Col. May
"Now the men are going to use
this color too, as soon as they use
up about about 7,000,000 yards of
the material they already had,"
the WAFs ranking officer pointed
