Sacramento Penair Base I« Considered Strategically

United Prt«s Staff Correspondent
(CP) — The government's new
>7,000.000 Sacramento air depot
—largest and most complete shop
in the country for keeping trim
military fijrhtjnsr planes and huere
bombers in shape—is scheduled
to be in full operation by March
l.*», 1«):«». «
Army (juartermaster corps atid
«-iviliiin engineers in charge of
construction at the depot, five
miles northeast of Sacramento to
ward the foothills of the Sierra
Nevada*. report work is weeks
ahead of schedule.
Air corps officers and enlisted
men, with a lar«;e detail of civil
ian mechanics, will be working at
the depot soon after the first of
next y»ar as some of the units
of the repair base are placed in
As ot iwers arm innnaun aic
transferred t<» the Sacramento
depot, Rockwell field at Coronado,
CaL, near San Diego, gradually
will be turned over to the navy.
Rockwell field has served as a
repair base for the army corps
since World war 'lays hut ha-' been
antiquated by rapid strides of
army aviation.
The Sacramento depot will ser
vice all military planes on the
Pacific coast.. I'ntil completion
of a similar but smaller depot at.
Ifickam field near Schofield bar
racks in the Hawaiian islands, the
California base will act as repair
headquarters for army planes for
the entire Pacific area.
Sacramento was selected for
the new depot because of its lo
cation. War a large navigable
river and adjacent to two trans
continental marine railroad tracks
it is considered far enough from
the coast to be comparatively safe
from possible raids by enemy
planes if t.he I'nited State-; should
he invaded.
I.ivin" quarters for 20 officers
and their families, as Well as
about 120 enlisted men. are vir
tually complete. In final" stages
are a hospital; fire and guard
house and post exchange, all lo
cated in one corner of the 12.000
acres of former farm land, pur-i
chased bv the army and set aside •
as a military reservation.
Steel trusses for a three-unit
hanger whose roof covers 7 1-2
acres are in place. Workmen are
now fastening asbesto'-proterted
corrugated metal covering on the
bare supports.
The hangars are 200 feet deep.!
Rectangular doors that slirle back
into special pockets in the side of
1 the structure elope an opening 2r»0
feet wide and MS feet high.
Largest bombers in regular ar
mv service at present have a
wintrsnread of onlv 128 feet and
a height of 2'1 feet, but, engi
neers explained, the depot is de
signed for future development in
Authorities estimated six of the
largest bombers now used could
be stored in each hangar section
by careful parking. Innumerable;
smaller fighting and observation
. ships can remain under the pro
tective covering of the hangar,
while undergoing repairs.
An engineering shon and repair
! dock behind the hangars has a
j roof area of 1M 1-2 acres. Com
pletely new machinery of the lat
p«r desi« tn ».e» installed.
.Another lar^o, conernto - sroel
structure ha.- been built for gen
eral warehouse purposes, while
smaller buildings, apart from the
main plant, will contain paint, oil
and wnnir "dope" supplies
A half-mile from the hangars
are buildings containing- utility
machinery and a disposal plant.
Miles of storm drainage, gas and
water pines, and radio, electricity
and telephone wires have been
laid underground, eliminating all
overhead hazards except a larsre
wafer tank which has been vivid
ly marked and lierhted.
Apart from the general plant
"•roup is a small munitions build
ing, where small bore ammuni
tion and some powder for bomb
er testinc purposes will be stored.
Two miles away in another part
of' Sacramento valley near Math
crfield, former army base now
used only as a bombing target
ran-'e, will be a powerful radio
sending station. It will be con
nected by cables to an operations
tower atop the hangars, where a
dispatcher will control all planes
usinp the depot.
Ii. I). Swift, civilian construc
tion engineer. and Tol. Hugo E.
f'itz, constructing quartermaster,
est inflated that O.'i per cent of the
airplanes repaired at the Sacra
mento depot, will be flown in.
To take care of ships that crash,
a railroad sidine runs directly in
to the repair dock. For bombers
too largo to be transported on
flat, cars, a barge dock will be
built on the Sacramento river,
four miles distant. Sacramento
county is to huild a wide, hard
surfaced road to the depot from
the river for use bv trailers haul

Three criss-cross asphalt run
ways, each "j.000 feet long, are
to be constructed this summer.

denot was broken in Autrust,

started that fall, but major work

Lifted From Victims i
Along 'Gold Coast'
United Pres* Staff Correspondent
MIAMI. Flu.. April 14. (UP) —
Alonir "Florida's "gold coast,"
stretching from Palm Ueach here,
an army of confidence men p!ie<i
their trade during the winter sea
son, liberally fleecing Phineas T.
J'arnum'.s proverbial "suckers,"
authorities here revealed.
Working1 in gangs, pairs and in
dividually, the "eon" men were
estimated to have taken more
than $1,000,000 from their vic
tims, who included financiers,
prosperous retired farmers, col
lege graduates and people in all
walks of life.
Sixty per cent of the swindles
were never reported, authorities
said, and 20 per cent of the cha
grined victims in reporting their
losses made police give assurance
their names would not be reveal
ed. Such action, police lamented,
virtually eliminated any chance
of bringing a swindler to justice
Proximity of the Miami and
Palm Ileach areas to the state's
two horse race tracks—Hialeah
and Tropical parks—made the
bar?*- race betting swindle rhe
"con" man's most profitable rack
et in South F'lorida.
The horse race betting scheme
almost co.-t «»ne man $250,000
and in a tew known cases took
the ontiie savings of several ie
tiie<l business men.
The victim is led to believe that
hi.- "friends" credited u wager
with a booking agent and won a
huge amount of money, which
they cannot collect until they
prove they could have produced
the wager had they lost.
The victim is told if he "loans"
them the amount of the wager to
show the booking agent he will
receive a percentage of the
amount won. Later, the trusting
victim goes to a designated spot
to meet his "friends" and collect
his winnings and his "loan." The
swindlers never show up.
The plan has variations, equally
effective. The scheme outlined al
most cost a British industrialist,
who refused to permit use of his
name, $2.">0,000, A Miami banker
refused to give him the money
when the Britisher told him why
he wanted it. When their intend
ed victim failed to return, the
swindlers fled.
A crude but effective coin
matching game made sporadic ap
pearances in public gatherings.
Its operation usuallv produced
anywhere from $3 to $5,000 a
victim, authorties said.
The victim of the coin game
envisions tremendous profit by
becoming a swindler himself. The
"con" men work the scheme in
pairs. One engages the victim in
