D. C. Flyer Returning
With 5 Decorations,
But Minus Beard
By THOMAS R. HENRY,
Star Staff Correspondent.
HEAVY BOMBER BASE IN ENG
LAND. — Tech. Sergt. Egbert R.
Rude, 3410 A street S.E., radio
operator and gunner on the Pica
dilly Queen, which was long one of
the best-known Flying Fortresses in
England, now is on his way home
with five decorations—but minus his
famous brown beard.
It all started with a modest goatee
which the former Federal Works
Agency accountant started when he
first came to England. In the face
of much “kidding,” he came to re
gard it as a good luck emblem and
swore that he would not shave it
until he had completed the tour of
missions required for heavy bomber
combat men in this theater.
It required a lot of fortitude to
keep this vow, for if there is any
place where a beard is inconvenient
and uncomfortable, it is five miles
high at 50 below zero, where the air
is so thin that It is necessary to
wear an oxygen mask all the time.
The mask fits tightly over the
face. The breath congeals against
the beard and forms icicles, and the
result is a rather painful ordeal
until the plane comes down into a
strata of breathable air again.
Went on “Tough" Missions.”
On the Picadilly Queen, Sergt.
Rude took part in some of the
toughest missions over Germany, in
cluding the bombing of the Focke
Wulf factory at Mariensburg and
the ball-bearing works at Schwein
furt. He also had part in raids
over Munster, Bremen and Ludwigs
hafen and has been awarded the
Air Medal, Three Oak Clusters and
the Distinguished Flying Cross.
It was Just after Sergt. Rude had
completed his tour that the Picadilly
Queen, which had piled up the rare
record of 31 missions without a
single turn-back, went down. An
other crew was, flying it that day
and all were lost. A German fighter
had dived in to attack it. The ball
turret gunner hit the Nazi plane.
The pilot must also have been hit,
because the enemy plane went com
pletely out of control. It zoomed
up madly and hit the right wing
of the “Queen,” shearing it off.
Both planes went down in a spin
together. The Fortress had previ
ously shot down eight enemy planes
and had more than 85 tons of
bombs.
spaniel Constant Companion.
When Sergt. Rude first came to
England he was signed to another
plane with which he made his first
two missions. The crew had a mas
cot—a little black spaniel. One day
Sergt. Rude was left behind. The
ship went down and all the crew
were lost. He adopted the dog and
it has been his constant companion
in England.
Sergt. Rude is an amateur pho
tographer and painter. He wants to
take up one of these hobbles as his
profession when he gets back to
Washington after the war. But for
the present, he says, his chief ambi
tion is “to take my 5-year-old son
fishing.”
The 34-year-old gunner and radio
operator has been overseas since
June. His wife, Mrs. Eva Rude, said
yesterday she expects him home al
most any time now. Formerly a
commercial artist, Sergt. Rude at
tended the National Art School and
Corcoran Art School in Washington.
He was employed by the Treasury
Department and the Federal Works
Administration before he entered
the air forces.

and numerous types of movie cam

posure meters. For all other, ma
terials a formula for computing
ceilings is provided.
The regulation replaces a “freese"
order now in effect pegging prices
at March, 1942, levels. OPA said,
however, that the new measure will
hold prices at the same Nation
wide level as during that period,
but is expected to eliminate localized
inequalities that have resulted under
the freeze order.
As at present, the ceilings are
binding for sales by private owners
as well as dealers.
