GTONFED OF PROPERLY ^TRAINED AIR FORCE U. 8. AWAK, EQUIPPED President is Making an Effort to Put Service on Footing of its Own. CURRY BILL IB IMPORTANT By Edward Percy Howard Washington, D. C., Dec. 23.—France has 50,000 aeroplanes in actual serv ice. Japan has seventeen factories work ing night and day turning out aero planes, England has an air Admirality and a startling national development In: aeronautics. America invented the aeroplane, bat America has no air service worthy of consideration. These facts have burned themselves Into the mind of President Gollidge. Quietly he has been digesting the growing comment of the press on this subject. Calmly and without any splash he has been analyzing the sit uation relative to our national de fense. Now, without any dramatic message he has set out to give Ameri ca her proper and sensible place in the air. -M The President; is disposed to believe the aeroplane is destined to supplant the battleship as our first line of de fense. He is determined to know whether his judgment is correct. He has put the subject before ««. expert, board and ordered a thorough invest 1 - , ., gation and report. While the war s . ,, . . experts are working out their prob , lem the President has sent to the „ , . „ , , . , „ Budget Bureau for facts and figures 8 , „ *4 1 cohering the small appropriations al , . f _. .. lotted to the various government <le par men of ai n,p a.u purposes. tVant Air Department and Secretary Peculiarly, while the President is thus pressing his inquiry, Charles F.

He knows that the scrapping of aero planes is as noth ng to the cost scrapping battleships.' He senses the fact that one daredevil American with some high explosive and Yankee pluck can sink a battteahip with its thous and or eighteen hundred men in less of influence or politics. etnafth. hut a* aas«*.
