Arctic Forces Insist They Need
10 Times More Men for Defense
By W. H. Shippen, Jr.
Aviation Editor of Th« Star
ADAK, Alaska. Apr. 3.—The men
.who would be hit hardest in a sud
den attack feel they have less than
| a tenth the strength they would
need here to give a successful ac
count of themselves.
This was a belief shared by the
Black Widow fighter pilots of the
449th Squadron who escorted our
C-54 into the field here and the
; naval construction engineers, the
| technicians, repairmen, ranking
! brass and GI Joes.
The battle against an always dan
gerous nature alone is tough enough
Ion this rough frontier 1.300 miles
southwest of the mainland, what
with williwaws, frozen tundra, earth
tremors, unpredictable freezes and
| thaws and the all-pervading fog.
| The international situation, the
!men think, is another reason why
a decision should be taken either
to give this country the very best
of everything at whatever cost or
turn it back to the blue foxes.
The widely dispersed base built
here during the war was thrown
up to last only two or three years.
Quonset huts and shacks dug half
.into the earth against the wind are
; disintegrating ajjd the plumbing
system is coming apart in spots.
The road network is increasingly
difficult to maintain with the per
sonnel available, as pointed out to
visiting newspapermen by Brig.
Gen. V. H. Kimble, formerly of
: Washington, who is commander of
the air force in the Aleutians and
chief of this base.
Construction nere costs two and
a half times as much wind takes
about three times as long as in the
continental United States. The only
true economy, Gen. Kimble feels, is
in heavy permanent installations,
ithe best of equipment and trained
| men.
Of paramount importance in a
country where pilots believe them
selves lucky when they can see
i where they are going are adequate
air navigational aids. Radio %ta
itions need to be spotted unusually
! close together to throw out ranges
j which clear the peaks. Accurate
weather reporting becomes a rou
tine matter of survival.
Winds up to 150 miles an hour rise
suddenly and ground fog can persist
despite a 70-mile surface gale,
i It is great flying weather wi.en
the winds get over 125 miles an
hour. One pilot told me all the
'houses take off.
The carpenters imported from
Seattle to nail and tie the houses
down make $2.05 an hour with time
and a half for 14 hours of weekly
overtime, along with free medical
attention, transportation and board
at $1.50 a day.
Plying the 1,300 mnes from An-1
chorage, reporters had a rare op-;
portunity to see the Aleutian chain!
of peaks and volcanoes ri^ng from
the sea. Glittering white pinnacles J
stood against the sky like the fangs
of a giant skull. Some trailed their
■own snow plumes, a few let off
black smoke from their crests and
others were like snowy caldrons
from which steam boiled upward.

Bay, the, 8,000-foot Pavilof volcano
and Atka. It was the first time some
of the air commuters who accom
panied us had seen so much of the
chain since last summer.
The Air Force, with tiie aid of the
10th Rescue Squadron, the Coast
Guard, numerous bush pilots and
an arctic survival school for air
men, has come a long way toward
relieving the spirit of fatalism of
men who flew the country in for
mer years.
Our co-pilot, 1st Lt. Richard Ban
ister of Erie, Pa., had occasion
only three weeks ago to be happy
that he is a graduate of the survival
school. His twin-engined C-47 ran
out of gas due to a broken fuel line
some 30 miles south of Naknek.
Eight other men of the 54th Troop
Carrier Squadron were aboard.
The pilots had some visibility and
were able to crash land on the
tundra without casualties. No
body got hysterical and everybody
kept busy, the lieutenant said, be
cause they had been through school.
Their radios were not knocked out
and bush pilots took them off three
hours after the crash.
The airmen had attended the
school at Nome. There they had
cared for themselves several days,
on the tundrla, two more on the
ice and another on the beach.
Eskimos along the coast came out j
to watch the antics of the strange
white men. The thing that struck
them funniest was an ice igloo, j
The Eskimos had never seen nor ;
heard of one before and roared with
laughter at such a comic house
‘The cost of building materials must
be going up everywhere," one of
the natives remarked.
