MADRID, Aug. 9.-(R)-You can't
name a hero on the fast-flying loy-
alist air force.
For one thing, the government
scrupulously guards the names of its
flyers, many of whom are still in
For another, air battles no more
are the glorious affrays of the World
War, when a Rickenbacker or a Rich-
thofen could single out an enemy
and send him crashing to the ground.
As seen from Madrid, they re-
semble naval combats. Squadrons
of from half a dozen to as many as
50 planes go against enemy squad-
rons. They maneuver for position.
When a ship is brought down it is not
so much the prowess of the individual
pilots as the swift intervention of
other planes at the right moment.
But although residents of this be-
sieged city have no air heroes, they
have formed attachments for planes.
Having stood open-mouthed watch-
ing, time after time, that most thrill-
ing spectacle of modern warfare, an
air battle,stheyshave become acutely
In Madrid, the populace has given
pet names to air battleships.
Their favorite is a snub-nosed, fast
fighter with retracable landing gear.
What makes it a favorite is the fact
that the daily bombing of the capital
in the dark days of last Nove ber
ended abruptly when this snub-nosed
bird first appeared. The Spaniards
immediately dubbed it a "chato."
That's Spanish for any snub-nosed
Chatos are made under American
patents. So is the next in rank, the
"1mosca." "Mosca" means "fly." Any-
one who has seen these tiny, speedy
craft in 'action, buzzing around an-
noying the enemy until the more
deadly chatos can get into action
will know they are well named.
So popular have the pet names be-
come that even official government
bulletins use the terms freely.

Snell Terms Letter From
Attorney General 'Inane'
And Asks Investigation
WASHINGTON, Aug. 9.--()-Rep.
Snell (Rep., :N.Y.) made public today
what he termed an "inane" letter
from Attorney-General Cummings
stating that the Justice Department
is "making an inquiry" into the sale
of Democratic yearbooks autographed
by President Roosevelt.
Snell ,who is demanding a con-'
gressional investigation, had asked
Cummings for an opinion as to the
legality of the sales. The New Yorker
contended the books were sold to
corporations for $250 each in viola-
tionrof the law governing campaign
"As you are aware, under existing
statutes, the Attorney General is per-
mitted to render opinions only to
the President and to heads of the
executive departments of the govern-
ment," Cummings wrote. "However,
you are informed that the depart-
ment is making an inquiry with re-
spect to this matter."
Calling the letter "inane in every
respect," Snell said it "doesn't mean

which his resolution was referred, is

doubt, however, that it would recom-

How To Teach
Of Curtis Talk
In the teaching of science, nothing
has been taught if the student just
learns facts, Prof. Francis D. Curtis
of the education school yesterday told
a group in the auditorium of the
University high school.
"There are three things to teach
in science instruction," he said, "prin-
ciples of science, methods of science
and attitudes of science."
Prof essor Curtis pointed out that

Two Ansaldo Brothers Famous
As Flyers In Spanish Conflict
By CHARLES S. FOLTZ
WITH THE NATIONALISTS IN
SPAIN, Aug. 9.-(A)--The flying An-
saldo brothers are as famed on the
nationalist side of Spain's war as the
Dean brothers are in American base-
Juan Ansaldo, slim and dark-
haired, is the family's "Dizzy" Dean,
the flyer about whom a host of leg-
ends have been told.
Brother Pablo is more quiet, but
his flying prowess is none the less
famed. There's a third brother, but
he's on the government side so Fran-
co's followers have little to say about
But the brothers are not all. There
is a host of relatives, all bearing the
name Ansaldo, who have become fly-
"The air practically belongs to the
Ansaldos," Juan is quoted as saying.
The Babe Ruth of the nationalist
air force is Lieutenant Pombo, who
flew to Mexico for a girl and married
her. Now he is a proud father fighting
in Franco's air fleet. Pombo's part in
the war has not been spectacular,
Juan Ansaldo's latest stunt gave
his mechanic, a portly and long-suf-
fering sergeant named Jiminez, a
bad case of jitters.
