At Pensacola Naval Air Base
WAVES TAKE OVER—A WAVE at Pensacola is shown operating the synthetic training device by which aerial gunners learn how to recognize enemy planes, estimate the range and “shoot to kill.” The student is aiming an electric-eye gun at motion pictures of airplanes in simulated attack. —Navy Photos. By MIRIAM OTTENBERG, Bt»r S’»ff Correspondent PENSACOLA, Fla,, Oct. 26 — Wherever you go in this “Annapolis of the Air," you'll find a WAVE at work. That's what a group of 11 news paperwomen learned when the Navy flew' them down to Pensacola for a look at their sisters in uniform. WAVES were everywhere—in the gunnery school, in repair shops, in the air traffic control towers, in the radio rooms, in the “ships store ashore," in the parachute lofts and In the dispensary. There were grease - streaked WAVES in the coveralls they call “seabags." There were WAVES in Navy blue slacks climbing into Link trainers. There was a WAVE an swering the telephone in the ad mirals outer office and a WAVE in formal whites holding the diplomas at the designation ceremony wffien cadets received their wings. Men Released for Sea Duty. There were hospital corspmen WAVES and aviation metalsmith WAVES. There was a WAVE on the Pensacola-bound plane. She was a public relations WAVE. Every day the Navy is discover ing the WAVES can do something else that will release more men for sea duty. For instance, officers were doubtful about putting WAVES in the low-pressure chamber where aviation cadets learn how to use boy jump a ’chute she'd packed. There's a WAVE officer, whose name can't be used for security rea sons, who is in charge of the secret communications files. She holds a "burning party" every week or two to destroy secret and confidential material. Two of the WAVE officers are couriers, carrying secret information to other stations. They wear a gun on the hip and know how to use it. They always take an armed guard with them but the guard may be a WAVE, too. Assist in Repairing Planes. On most of the jobs sailors and WAVES work side by side, taking or ders from the same male officer. You see two figures in coveralls mounted on an airplane wing, one holding a part in place while another twists in the screws. Both their faces are covered with grease. One of them, however, is a WAVE. | "I thought they might be afraid I to get their hands dirty,” admitted ■ their commanding officer, ‘ but they ! ' pitch right in with the boys.” They kid each other a lot. The saiior in the ship's store pauses to say, “Sure, we like them fine.” Re torts the WAVE beside him, “They like us because we help swab the decks.” While the men on the station get used to the WAVES at work, they are sometimes a surprise to stran : gers. They tell about the pilots com Already skilled at dozens of jobs, WAVES at Pensacola soon will take over the low-pressure chamber where aviation cadets are taught how to adapt themselves to high altitudes. Here, a trio of newspaperwomen, visiting Pensacola to see the WAVES at work, “take a hop,” complete with oxygen masks. their oxygen masks and how to take high altitudes. It was thought offi cially that women couldn't take it. It was found officially that they could. The only difficulty there came when the flight surgeons, who go by b blueness of the lips and fingernails to detect the effects of altitude, had no guidepost to indicate when the wromen might faint. Between lip stick and fingernail polish, the WAVES had their symptoms care fully masked. Many Tasks Performed. Four days around Pensacola and Its outlying fields with a look in at the naval air station at Atlanta was hardly long enough to cover all the tasks the WAVES are performing, but here are a few' typical ones: Radioman (Third Class) Adelaide Glow, blond, 22, and attractive. wras a secretary in civilian life. Now she's teaching radio communication to aviation cadets. She flies a couple times a week to pratice radio naviga tion, sends recipes for mint juleps in code to keep the boys interested in their work. Her students call her "Glow" since she's enlisted person nel and doesn't rate "Miss.” Mrs. Fran Greenwood had just graduated from the University of Miami when she joined the WAVES. She teaches aerial gunners how to train their sights on enemy planes. One of her first students was Lt. Harold Greenwood. They were mar- 1 ried a month ago and he'g gone off1 to become a marine dive bomber pilot ’Chute Packer Is Speedy. Parachute Rigger (Third Class) Lucille Dasbach was in the account ing department of an insurance com pany until she joined the WAVES 10 months ago. She can pack a ’chute in six minutes. She and the other girl riggers are fast but careful.! because if a ’chute doesn't open and It's the fault of the rigger, they can be court-martialed. Biggest thrill j *he’s had in the Navy was seeing ai ing in from the South Pacific. A pilot calls Pensacola from the air and a girl's voice answers him. Bv the time the pilot has gotten around to asking for a date, a deep bass voice is responding on the other end. WAVES and enlisted men share the radio work at the communica tions center. More WAVES Needed. Everywhere the newspaperwomen went they were told by the com manding officers that more WAVES j could be used. Of course, there was ■ the senior medical officer who mur mured that he hoped the WAVE doctor who was scheduled to arrive soon ''wouldn't like the South,” but; 50 per cent of the hospital corpsmen in his dispensary were WAVES. Then, there was the squadron commander who thought having WAVES around “keeps the lan guage cleaner." "We're getting a lot of boys here straight from home—17-year-olds. Seeing the girls helps them to get started. They feel more at home." Generally, the sentiment here is that the sailors aren't completely , kidding when they swing past the i Wave barracks singing: "The WAVES are going to win the war Maryland Flyer Killed in Action LA PLATA, Md„ Oct, 26—Mr. and Everett L.

WASHINGTON AND VICINITY WASHINGTON, D. C. P)e f-umiitg J&kf OCTOBER 26, 1943. * SOCIETY AND GENERAL District Court Hears PEPCO Rate Appeal OPA Attorney Asks Electric Charge Cut Of $2,000,000 Arguments on a motion of the Po tomac Electric Power Co. and the Public Utilities Commission,to dis miss suits brought by four Federal agencies, including the Office of Price Administration and the Office of Economic Stabilization, who are seeking lower rates for Washington consumers, began today in District Court before Justice Jennings Bailey. Lloyd B. Harrison, one of several counsels for the defendants, opened the arguments after Harry R. Booth. OPA counsel, outlined for the court the background of the case, which opened last March with a Federal study of the sliding-scale method of arriving at power rates. Mr. Booth, explaining that the Treasury Department Procurement Division was Pepco’s biggest custo mer” told the Jurist. "We think the rate reduction ought to be at least $2,000,000.” Procurement Division and the Federal Works Agency are the other two plaintiffs. The attorney also claimed the Gov ernment has been denied "a full and fair” hearing before the PUC when it first went into the rate question later in March. He further asserted that the rates have been "erroneously calculated” and should be "reconsidered in the light of the war and the Economic Stabilization Act.” Government appeals filed with the court have attacked the PUC order of April 26, giving consumers a rate reduction of 1.5 per cent and have maintained that the reduction should be 10 per cent, retroactive to March of this year. 43 in Fairfax County To Report for Service 18 Men Slated to Begin Army Training at Meade Eighteen enlisted reservists from the Fairfax County Selective Service Board will report to the reception center, Fort Meade.

House Is Ready To Aid District, Leader Pledges Legislators Thanked By McCormack for Co-operation on Bills Assurances that members of the House stand ready to give prompt consideration to legislation needed by the District were voiced yesterday by Majority Leader McCormack as the House quickly passed four Dis trict bills. “May I observe,” Mr. McCormack said, “that the Committee on the District of Columbia has been given every opportunity to bring up legis lation as quickly as possible after it is reported out of the committee. The leadership on both sides of the aisle has co-operated to the fullest extent possible with the chairman and the members of the Committee on the District of Columbia in see ing that legislation reported out re ceived prompt consideration. “As a matter of fact, the leader ship has enabled the legislation to be brought up where it has been re ported out unanimously without the committee's being compelled to wait until the regular District of Columbia day. Further, I think the business in order on District of Co lumbia day has been dispensed with as little delay during the last two or three years as during any similar period. “Should Have Confidence.” “The leadership ' on both sides recognizes that while we are mem bers of Congress we are also mem bers of the legislative body of the District of Columbia and that that is quite a serious trust. We want to see that the people of the Dis trict receive as prompt considera tion in the passage of legislation as possible. We want the Con gress and the legislative body of the District to convey to the people of the District of Columbia and the city of Washington that knowl edge so that they may have confi dence in the fact that Congress as a legislative body is legislating as quickly as possible. “The chairman of the committee and all of the members are aware, of that fact. The condition will' continue as long as I am leader, but I am very much concerned about the constant tendency and effort on the part of some individuals, and particularly one of your news papers—and I speak frankly and impersonally—to bring about a mis understanding between the people of the District and members of Congress. "We should have confidence in one another and respect for one another. I think that instead of trying to bring misunderstanding that they should attempt to bring about a feeling of confidence and under standing. Certainly the Congress, during the last three years, and I am confining myself to that period only, has done everything in its power to convey to the people of the District of Columbia the fact that we recognize our trust and are leg islating just as quickly as Is humanly possible, even not compelling the committee to wait until its regular District day, in order to get legisla tion through which relates to the District. Congratulates Committee. "I think it is only fair to make these observations so that in the future, instead of trying to bring about a feeling of misunderstanding, that a feeling of confidence and un derstanding, which the action of the members of Congress justifies, be a better course to pursue." Later Mr. McCormack said he be lieved the House District Committee had done "a wonderful job." Chairman Randolph of the House District Committee said both House Democrats and Republicans had co i operated "in every way" with the District Committee. Title Law Changed. One of the four approved meas ures provides a system for clear ing the title t& District prop erties sold at the annual tax deed auctions for nonpayment of taxes. This was described as desirable, but Mr. Randolph and Represent ative Dirksen, Republican, of Illi nois both voiced dislike for the tax auction sales. The latter called the practice "archaic." He explained that tax deed brokers come to the sales from other States and bid on the better properties, leaving the District to bid in the "cats and dogs." The purpose of the amendment was to provide for removing the tax deed "cloud" from the title to a property if the purchaser of the tax deed fails to obtain a fee sim ple title. This can be done row only through legal proceedings. The new measure provides this may be done after five years by the owner paying the back taxes, plus interest for the first two years, at 12 per Waste Paper Drive in Schools Passes 100,000-Pound Mark 80 Institutions Are Now Co-operating In Big City-Wide Salvage Campaign Schools participating in The Eve ning Star-PTA Salvage-for-Victory paper collection program yesterday passed the 100,000-pound mark with the totals for eight schools yet to be recorded. The first truckload to be picked up. which included 3,021 pounds from Randall Junior High, standing second in totals in the First District, and 1,680 pounds from Giddings, brought the aggregate to 100,112 pounds. When the other figures are in, a substantial start toward the second 100.000 pounds will have been made. Today, despite the rain, many children were observed carrying bundles of paper, magazines and cardboard to school, and a fair col lection is in prospect. Five more schools joined the campaign today, making the total number in the campaign 80. The new schools were Hearst, Oyster, Browne Junior. Blow and Webb. Practically all of the big producers of last year, with only three exceptions, are now in the program and only in the 4th district, which is west of Rock Creek Park, haa there been a lag i in • enlisting this renewal of the effort to bring in the paper so badly [ I needed in the industries supplying' ammunition, food, plasma and other medical supplies, and the manifold articles which require, .cardboard cartons for shipment. So ! far. Montgomery, Hardy, Key, Mann, Stoddert, Hearst, Alice Deal, Reno and Oyster are the only schools in this district in the program. Oyster will not be visited by the collection trucks until next week. Several of the schools in the Fourth District, however, are co operating with the District Salvage Committee in the once-a-month pick-up campaign and the paper is flowing to the mills, even though by a different channel. Today the Raymond School re ceived a windfall in the form of sev eral hundred pounds of paper of fered by Mrs. Sara A. Friedman of 3539 Holmead place. Other house holders without children of school age, having accumulations of paper, are urged to follow this example and notify some school pupil living close by in order that the school may ar range for the pick-up.

BALTIMORE, Oct. 26—Federal Judge William C. Coleman, “shocked by testimony in damage suits against a Maryland State Guardsman, sug gested an investigation involving the guard, the commissioner of motor vehicles and a Cecil County court.; Judge Coleman said yesterday that “in the interests of the public.” he suggested the proper authorities be advised that: A State guardsman continued iri that organization after a man slaughter conviction and after he had operated an automobile with out a license. The commissioner of motor ve hicles had issued a learner’s card to the guardsman after the recipient had been involved in a fatal acci- j dent and had been driving without a license. The Cecil County court had fined the guardsman “only $250’ on the manslaughter count, i Judge Coleman made his sugges tion after hearing these statements entered as testimony in a damage 'suit brought by two Bainbrideg , Naval Training Station pharma cist's mates. The men. who were awarded damages totaling $20,000. had claimed they were injured in a collision between a taxicab and a car driven by State Guard Corpl. Allen William Clark. Clark's conviction of man slaughter was in connection with ;the death of the taxi driver. He ;and Ernest K Taylor, owner of the taxi in which the two sailors were passengers, were ordered to pay the damages. Judge Coleman suggested that authorities of the State Guard and the commissioner's office and the Cecil County State’s attorney ! should be informed of the testimony.

Mrs. Byron Price Christens Ship Priscilla Alden at Baltimore Bjr the Associated Press. I BALTIMORE. Oct. 26. — Mrs. Byron Price, wife of the director of censorship and a lineal descendant of Priscilla Alden, christened a Lib erty ship named for her Colonial ancestor yesterday at the Bethle hem-Fairfield shipyard. The small, brunet wife of the for mer Associated Press official almost missed breaking the champagne bottle over the vessel’s bow. “Fascinated'’ by the shipyard, the first she had visted, Mrs. Price was telling friends what she had learned about shipbuilding when the launch ing whistle blew. Mrs. Price paid no attention until J. M. Willis, yard vice president and general manager, rushed over and called her atten tion to the blast. She hurried to where the bunting draped champagne bottle hung on their breaths a.s the big gray ship moved away. Then, she swung and shattered the container across the bow. Mr. Price, describing himself as "just a husband who came along for the ride ” watched the performance from the background. Mr. and Mrs. Price live at 4521 Lowell street N.W., Washington. Also watching tne ceremony were Mrs. Loyal R. Alden, Pikesville. Md„ Mrs. Price's aunt; Thomas L. Stokes of the Scripps-Howard Newspapers, and Mrs. Stokes, and Mark O'Dea of the Maritime Commission.

Alexandria Students High in State Tests Seventh Graders Rate Third in Virginia Alexandria public school pupils rated third highest in the State on standard tests given in all seventh grades in Virginia last spring to de termine school system efficiency. T. C. Williams, superintendent of schools, said the figures were given to him by officials of the State De partment of Education in Rich mond. Alexandria seventh-graders aver aged 13 years. 5 months, chrono logical age. which is the national average. Their average mental age was found to be 13 years, 2 months, but on the standard tests given they achieved an average of 13 t years, 11 months. Mr. Williams said the age rating achieved in the test was six months higher than the national average, nine months higher than the aver age in Virginia cities and 16 months higher than the average for State cities and counties. Mr. Williams explained that Alex andria's rating of third was an even greater achievement than the fig ures indicated, because 365 children were tested in the city, while the schools which rated first and sec-' one had groups of fewer than 100 pupils which, according to those familiar with the tests, tends to dis tort the accuracy of the figures. 43 in Prince Georges To Report for Duty j Forty-three men from the Upper Marlboro area will report soon for duty with the armed forces follow ing their induction last Wednesday by Prince Georges County Draft Board No. 3 at Upper Marlboro.
