Page Two AMERICAN HENS CACKLE PROUDLY Philosophers have long argued over why a hen cackl'e’s when she lays an egg. W. D. Buchanan, extension poultryman at the State College of Washington declares it is because she is proud of her work. After all, no other farm animal deIivers so much food in a sealed package. The hen is a big factor in na- tional defense, Buchanan says. She lays twice as many eggs as she did 50 years ago. She crams war- needed food into every egg. The egg, according to the Poultry and Egg National Board. contains B1. This is the vitamin that the warring nations feed their sol- diers to give them courage.

I l l I am finished at squadron two now and have put in about half the time required in the much pub- licised “Link” trainers in squadron three but due to bad weather have not been able to do any flying as yet. The work in this squadron is all instrument and from the take- off to the landing nothing is known of where you are except that the radio headset carries a signal that indicates whether or not you are on a certain path in the sky. All the time is spent under the “hood” and the only thing that indicates the altitude and direc- tion of the ship is the instruments on the panel before the pilot. It is difficult and rather nerve- racking but interesting at the same time and prehaps one of the most important things to know about flying that there is as it is possible to fly through clouds from one destination to another hun- dreds of miles apart with never any sight of the ground. It has been a beautiful day but now the wind is howling from the south and although the stars are out, tomorrow will probably be another non-flying day. Mar. 24, 1941 First I wish to report a _change of squadron—from 3 to 5, the ‘ squadron that trains the observa- tion and scouting men. This was my first day there and I flew for an hour and had to land on 30‘ count of a fog bank that came in unexpectedly off the gulf. The seaplanes are very easy to fly and I got along fine and had no trouble at all. It is the type of duty to which I have been as- lsigned and I think I’ll like it. i The weather seems to be break- Iing now and is becoming warm and muggy. I went to town and had my uni- form fitted Saturday evening and they are pretty nice to look at. I’ll be glad when the time comes when I can wear them permanently. April 12, 1941 I got thru a good instrument check in squadron 3 last week and now am the proud possessor of an approved instrument rating and , could , if need be, navigate by the laid of instruments and radio in the middle of a solid overcast. I passed the “solo check” in lsquadron with flying colors and spent a few more hours flying formation again since that time and tomorrow am supposed to start flying navigation and gun- nery. There are just three weeks left if the weather is good but today Was a continuous cloudburst SO the chances are that it will take longer. I don’t think I’m going to have the chance to come home but have not gotten the final word.

Phone 100 Cadet Donald Wise, the training which on the station (Pensacola) or at Jacksonville (Flordia) or Corpus Christi (Texas). The work is rather heavy now as the type of flying in which I am engaged requires a great deal of radio work and it is all in code and the procedure is quite exact- ing and must constantly be refer- red to for any amount of proficie- ncy in the art of communication. Also, flying and navigating over water andout of sight of land is a trick in itself which requires constant attention and provides an example of doing something different with each hand at the same time. Tomorrow I am supposed to check out in a first line ship of the fleet to complete the training in. They’are a very nice outfit and when in the air are very nice but the characteristics exhibited on the water are little tricky and they have a habit of shedding the wing floats at embarrassing mo- ments. This caused some excite- ment day before yesterday when one ship lost one float altogether and my roommate's ship practic- ally lost one. I sprained my ankle playing volleyball this evening and may be held up a few days. I don’t seem to have much to say or talk about except flyin but then that is all I ever do he e. The most radical thing we do for recreation is din- ner and a show in town, and things like that don’t make material for a letter. Fresh Onions—Not On Surplus Food Lists Next Monthl I Surplus foods which will be, available during the 'May 1 thrul 31 period to families taking part, in the Food Stamp plan in the, Washington area were announced today by Donald A.

Fresh onions, listed in April’ have been removed from the list of nationally designated surplus foods to be available in all areas during May. With this revision, the complete list of blue stamp foods for May in all Stamp Plan areas is as fol- lows: Fresh grapefruit, oranges, apples, carrots, butter, raisins, pork lard, all pork (except that cooked or packed in metal or glass containers), corn meal, shell eggs, dried prunes, hominy (corn) grits, dry edible l beans. wheat flour. and whole lo be sent in a couple of weeks but 1 th-at lGl‘aliaml flour. ball—vit’s perfect!” I h id IT’S PERFECT “There is no life like pro base- Those words, penned as a post- script to his letter to this depart- ment, tell better than any book that Norm Harris, ex-Highclimber diamond ace, likes his introduc- tion to the play-for-pay game.
