Cpl. Harper Seeks

Did you ever see a mother "swoose" towing her three baby "sweese"? There's a lot of it these days at
Grand Rapids airport, when LT. RICHARD KEEVY and other pilots arrive to pick up and tow new gliders to
a transport command base. The "swoose" and her "s weese" are the transport command's insignia. (Associ-

High Calisthenic
Record Made by
Army Air Corps
Showing the results of their physi-
cal hardening programs, Army Air
Corps students at the University of
Michigan have compiled records that
made the Army calisthenic standards
appear Lilliputian in contrast.
In one of the outstanding instances,
Schonewald of section B holds the
record here in push-ups, doing 68,
while the Army standard is 23. He is
also tied with Hyman of the same
section for the sit-up mark, having
done 510 to the standard 33, but this
mark has been excelled many times
all over the country.
Dexter of section A also garnered
two records for himself, doing 130
squat-jumps to the standard 32, and
also marking up 22 pullups to the
standard 8. Another student from
the same section, Carlisle, took only
17 seconds for the pick-a-back, the
standard being 26 seconds.
Levantis, from the A section also,
turned in another of the more nota-
ble feats, running the 300-yard dash
in 32.5 seconds.

Grad IStd(enit
Tells Panama
War Policies

Co irtry Ieogn zed
ap pThreat Long Ago
"My country was one of the firs
in America to declare war against the
Axis," Osvaldo Velasquey, Grad., stu
dent from Panama, said yesterday
"Since the Pan-American ConferencE
which was held in Panama City in
1939, shortly after the second Worli
War began, my country has follower
a marked anti-axis policy.
"We realized," he continued, "tha
sooner or later Japan would be ir
war against the democracies. HencE
we considered the Japs as our ene
mies and we began to treat them at
such. Pearl Harbor was not a sur
prise for us; we expected something
like that.
"As we are a very small country
with a population of 600,000, we havE
not the capacity to organize an arms
and send it to the fighting fronts, bu
our cooperation with the Unitec
States to win the war is unlimited
we have provided bases for the de
fenSe of the Canal; we have provider
thousands of men to work in defensE
work, and all our natural resource;
are being used for defense work."
Velasquey also stated that "Sinc
the construction of the Canal, Pan-
ama has cooperated with the United
States in a loyal and effective man-
ner for the maintenance and defense
of the Canal. Since then some dif-
ficulties have arisen between both
countries which as yet have not been
resolved. The main difficulty that
we have encountered is the marked
difference of rights which exists in
the Canal Zone between our people
and the people of the United States.
"We are fighting for freedom and
democracy," he added, "hoping that
when victory comes, democratic prin-
ciples will rule the relations between
the countries."
