repute in the American army. His
statement in part follows:
"Each witness testified on the sub
ject about which he had experience
and every witness knew what he was
talking about. A complete and incon
trovertible case for a united air serv
ice was made out. 1 shall report the
matter to the complete Committee on
Military Affairs of the House. I know
that if the bill is repotted it will have
no difficulty in passing the House.
"Gen. Mitchell, in closing his testi
mony. said: "If we are not to have u
separate air service, then let us not
have a?y at all.'
"Jfivery ace with a record came to
Washington and testified to their per
sonal troubles owing to the lack of
centralized control during the wat
and all urged a united service.
"I can ?ay also that the fliers of
the navy are in favor of a united
service.- The bureaucratic navy it*
against it."
