Army Air Corps
Has Openings
—For Cooks
Washington youths who itch to
get in the Army Air Corps now
won't have to know how to fly a
plane. And they won’t have to ful
fill the usual requirement of a high
school education or equivalent me
chanical training.
All they need is to be nimble at
peeling and boiling spuds.
The Army recruiting station here
issued a call yesterday for cooks to
serve with the Air Corps at Langley
Field, Va„ giving assurance that "to
applicants qualifying, other educa
tional and occupational require
ments have been waived."
Successful applicants will he fitted
up in snappy Air Corps uniforms,
says Sergt. Norman W- Morgan, in
charge of the station, "but, of
course, they'll have to stay in the

for service with the medical depart
ment at Fort Belvoir, Va.; Fort
Meade, Md.; Fort Monroe, Va., and

There are also*general vacancies for
colored applicants, and openings in
the field artillery and engineers.

Relief for Spanish
Refugees in France
Urged at Session
Commission Hears
Plea for Assistance
A plea that the Intergovern
mental Commission on Refugees
initiate efforts to aid Spanish Loyal
ists now held in French concentra
tion camps was voiced yesterday by
officers of the Spanish Refugee Re
lief Campaign, nosy holding a na
tional conference in the Harrington
Douglas Jacobs, campaign direc
tor, just returned from an inspection
of "deplorable” conditions in the
French camps, declared that the
Intergovernmental Commission "has
ignored the existence of a Spanish
refugee problem.”
The commission, headed by the
United States delegate, Myron C.
Taylor, former chairman of the
United States Steel Corp., was
formed largely to relieve persecu
tion of Jews in Germany.
The condition of the Spanish
exiles is becoming more desperate
since France went to war, Mr.
Jacobs said, since the French gov- !
ernment can no longer bear the ex
pense of supporting them. “And
Franco has frightened the French
by telling them the Spanish govern
ment will consider it an unfriendly
act if the Loyalists should be en
rolled in the French Army.”
“Chile and Mexico have set no
top limit to the number of Spanish
refugees they will accept. An effort
should be made to use American
ships for trans-Atlantic transporta
tion just as soon as American citi
zens have been evacuated from
Europe,” he suggested.
The Rev. Herman F. Reissig of
New York, executive secretary of the
campaign, gave his official report
during afternoon sessions. Panel
meetings on resettlement, reprisals
and amnesty and emergency relief
were held during the evening.
At 10 o'clock this morning John
P. Davis, executive secretary - of
the National Negro Congress, will
speak. Members will hear Harold
Lund, member of the President’s
Conference on Children in a De
mocracy, at the afternoon session.

Mrs. Simms to Learn

By the Asiocieted Presi.
Ruth Hanna McCormick Simms,
dean of American woman politicians,
came to Philadelphia today, an
nouncing she is returning to politics
after an eight-year lapse to devote
her time to the Republican cam
paign in 1040.
“I am starting out to make a
tour of the Eastern States to Inter

get their views on policies and
candidates for the pre-convention
campaign,” she said in an inter
Mrs. Simms, daughter of Mark
Hanna, widow of Senator Medill
McCormick of Illinois, the wife of
former Representative Albert Simms
of New Mexico, has been absent
from politics since she was defeated
for the Senate by James Hamilton
Lewis in 1930.
Mrs. Simms, who has attended
every Republican national conven
tion since 1896, declared the Eu
ropean wifr must not be allowed
"to obscure the issues of the 1940
Asked if she had any particular
man in mind as the Republican
presidential candidate, she replied:
"Candidates? We can talk of
them later. The Republican party
has many good men. But the lead
ers should remember that this ia
hot a ward light, and not a scramble
of favorite sons for some trivial
personal or trading advantage.”
