An Editorial About
Maj. Richard Bong
The New York Herald Tribune
carried the following editorial
about the late Major Richard Ira
Bong, a son of Swedish immi
grants, the greatest flying ace of
World War II.
“In a war so tremendous that
it has spread around the globe
and engaged the full energies of
millions of people, it is almost im
possible to assess the contribution
of a single individual. One might
say that Major Bong, in shooting
down forty enemy planes and thus
establishing a record unequaled in
American history, has set a stand
ard and ideals for fellow airmen
and every eager young lad in the
United States too young 'to be in
uniform; one might measure his
value to his country in terms of
morale; one might say that he
was lucky. an expert shot, and
superb flyer; or one might say.
here was a man with adventure
and daring strong in his blood.
devoted to a punishing task, and
fulfilling his duty with courage
and honor and intelligence. All of
which would be true.
But a. hero does more—he pulls
a war ahead with him. Among
American flyers. for instance.
there was first a race to see who
could equal or outscore Captain
Eddie Rickenbacker‘s World War
I record of twenty-six planes.
When that had been pulled down.
it was an open run for every one
out ahead. Now the object is to
outshoot Major Bong in a perilous
contest with laurels coming high
and flyers dying in attempted
General MacArthur pinned the
Congressional Medal of Honor on
Major Bong's tunic last December.
In two years, he had shot down
in Pacific warfare almost an en
emy a month. It was a prodigious
accomplishment. freeing the dan
gerous eastern skies of forty en
emy aircraft, and setting the seal
on Major Bong as a hero extra~
ordinary in the enormous conflict."
With peach season at- its height
and still quite a few hot days left.
ice cream season is still here. By
all means make» some fresh peach
ice cream. A good vanilla recipe.
without the vanilla flavoring, but
with a drop of almond flavor and
lots of mashed or sliced peaches
is wonderful.

Ice cream reminds us of freez~
ing. and if you have a locker. by
all means freeze corn on the cob.
it is one of the most satisfactory
of frozen vegetables. Simply husk
corn and steam for 10 minutes. or
drop in boiling water to blanch
and let come to a boil and boil 6
minutes. Then cool completely.
wrap individually in wax paper
and put in the locker.

White Is Helsinki's Color...
One does not take in all Hel
sinki in a day——it is not all of a
piece. It must be explained and
returned to if one is to get the
flavor and the variety—to see the
wise planning, from the areas of
public building to the sports fields
and the industrial sections.
If there is a dominating color
in the capital it is certainly white,
ranging from bone white to lus
trous white. ivory white. oyster
white. and thence into shades of
pearl gray and granite pink. The
new public schools, hospitals, and
various sports stadia, the arrest
ing new Agricultural College, and
hundreds of modern apartment
houses in white stucco and con
crete have strengthened the im
pression of whiteness. Certainly
there are more white structures
in Helsinki than in any other
European c‘ity. Buildings remain
white for years, for although the
capital is also the republic’s larg
est industrial town, it is virtually
smokeless. Instead of coal, birch
wood is used for fuel. and birch
wood gives off almost no smoke.
Rains in summer and snow in
winter keep the houses well
washed, and the fresh sea breezes
help the sun to dry them.
As in Stockholm. the visitor to
Helsinki is always impressed by;
the harmony of color of the better
apartment houses. They are not
monotonously white, but are re
lieved by bright awnings of deep
sea blue or rust or orange, or
aquamarine or pale lemon yellow.
Often the buildings are painted a
wheat-color or a whitish-green like
Malaga grapes. lnvarlably when
color is used on the new buildings
it is pastel and chalky in effect.
never violent, never murky. Some
of the architects have selected
colors that seem intended to re
flect the luminosity of the aurora

Groups Meet
Many Scandinavian conferences
have recently been held in Swe
den. August 11-12. for instance,
the postal employees. transport
workers and seamen's unions of
the Scandinavian countries met in
Stockholm to discuss common pro
blems. A meeting of shipowners
from the Northem countries was
opened in Gothenburg August 14.
Fifteen members of the SWedish
Riksdag are taking part in the
congress of the Nordic Interpar
liamentary Union in Copenhagen.
On August 5 the Scandinavian
peace associations held a meeting
at Eda, in the Swedish province
of Vermland close to the Norwe

and 18th centuries was a fortress.
but which now is known for its
“Peace Mounment,” commemorat
ing the peaceful dissolution, in
1905, of the union between Swe
den and Norway. About 15,000
people, mostly Swedes and Norwe
gians, were assembled. Among the
speakers were Count Foike Berna
dotte and a member of the Nor
wegian government, Conrad Bon
nevie-Svendsen. who during the
German occupation of Norway
played a. prominent part in the
resistance movement.
He called the Norwegian-Swe
