Strong Army Needed
To Back U. S. Policy,,
VFW Group Is Told
The Security Committee of the
Veterans of Foreign Wars was told
yesterday that In American foreign
policy, "the stick must be as long as
the voice is loud.” The stick, they
were told, is not long enough today.
The council met in the StatleP
Hotel to hear from representatives
of the armed forces and the State
Department on the overall picture
of national security. What they
learned will affect VFW policy in
the future, according to Cas D. Moss,
the committee chairman.
Speaking for the Army was Lt. Col.
Donovan P. Yeuell, jr., from the
office of the chief of information,
Department of the Army. Col.
Yeuell told the committee that the
Army is basing its security-require
ments on the report of the Compton
Commission, which calls for a pre
pared striking force and universal
military training.
Col. Yeuell said that the Army
places its peacetime manpower re
quirements at about 670,000 men—
nearly 150,000 more than its pres
ent strength. He said that uni
versal training was the only solid
foundation on which to base plans
for national security.
The cost of training—estimated at
about $1,750,000,000 a year—must be
PYnlainpri t.n tV»A nnhlir os a riAPAS
sary Investment In their own se
curity, the officer pointed out.
VFW spokesmen observed after
Col. Yeuell’s talk that what he had
said was “very much in line” with
■ the organization’s policy on national
: security. The veterans support uni
i versal military training, a strong air
| force and stockpiles of vital war
materials, the spokesmen said.
Others on yesterday's program in
j eluded Donald C. Blaisdell, associate
! chief of the Division of International
Security Affairs of the State De
I partment; Capt. Ira H. Nunn, of the
| Navy Judge Advocate General’s of

4 Killed in Air Crash
In Indiana; One Was
To Marry Next Week
iy th» Associated Press
TERRE HAUTE, Ind., Dec. 20.—
Four young men flying Eastward
from Kansas City in a rented air
plane were killed early today as the
ship crashed on a farm about 2
miles from the Hulman Airport on
the outskirts of Terre Haute.
Through papers found on the
bodies, Arthur McDermott, an air
port employe, identified the victims
at William P. Student, 26, and his
brother, Stephen Student, jr.;
Charles J. Fossler, jr., 20, and Ray
mond P. Zielinski, 22.
The four young men were Penn
sylvanians who had been attending
schools in Kansas City.
One Was to Have Been Married.
The Student brothers’ home was
in Lenighton, Mr. Fossler’s in Pen
field and Mr. Zielinski’s in Reading.
Pa.
Mr. Zielinski was to be married
next Saturday, to Miss Doris Sim
mons of Reading, to whom he had
become engaged shortly, after his
discharge from the Army.
Mr. Zielinski, Stephen Student
and Mr. Fossler had been attending
the Central Radio School in Kansas
City while William Student attended
an aviation school. William had
served as a bombardier instructor
for the Army Air Force during the
war.
Joe Jacobsen, operator of a flying
service at the Kansas City municipal
v i -
airport, said Will Student had
rented the plane, a four-passenger
Stinson flying station wagon, yes
terday. The young man. Mr. Jacob
son said, had a private pilot’s license
and was near completion of a course
for a commercial pilot’s license.
William O. Jones, superintendent
of the Terre Haute airport, said the
plane had radioed for permission to
land about 9 o’clock last night.
This permission was granted, Mr.
Jones said, but the plane did
not come in and it was assumed it
'had flown on to some other port.
The wrecked ship was found this
morning by Lloyd Ellis on his farm
two and a half miles southeast of
the airport. Observers said it ap
peared as if a wing of the plane
had struck a small hill, after which
the plane crashed In a wooded area.
