Pictures Used To Instruct The Army Officers There has been a lot of publicity about how the army is being mechan ized. That modernization applies just as well to methods of instruction for officers and non-commissioned of ficers of the 115th Infantry. They are going to the movies now for their lessons. Twice a week all of the officers and non-commissioned officers at tended schools at night for instruc tions in various phases of military tactics. Heretofore the schools had been conducted separately by the three battalions of the regiment. Col. D. John Markey, of Frederick, com manding officer of the regiment, Monday night, however, instituted a regimental school for the officers and non-commissioned officers. This school will repluce one of the twice weekly battalion schools. Through Col. Markey’s efforts vis ual education methods were introduc ed to keep the 115th in step with other advanced army techniques. The motion picture method is explained by Col. Markey as being particularly clear in its instruction. Monday night every available seat in the regi mental recreation hall was filled as a capacity attendance observed the first motion picture class. Map read ing and all its details were distinct ly outlined. Not only is the visual method out standing for its clarity but it also is a time saving device aimed particu larly for expediting instruction. As Capt. Guy Anders, commanding of ficer of Company A, of Frederick, expressed it after the map reading movie on Monday night, “If I could have seen such films before attending map reading classes it would have saved me about three gallons of mid night oil.” Even the privates first class and the buck privates are taken into con sideration in the new educational sys tem. Many times it has been impos sible for all the men in the regiment to attend the different classes in cluded in an extensive military pro gram and the men who did not rate as non-commissioned officers got their instruction by the older teach ing method.

EXPLOSION SETS FIRE TO YACHT APRIL 2 Fire of unknown origin, which started in the form of an explosion, completely destroyed a 53 feet cruis er yacht, owned by Rolf Selquist, of McKeesport, Pa., Wednesday, April 2nd. The yacht was completely equip ped for living purposes and well fur nished. On board the boat were Cap tain Sam Taylor and James Conner, of Chincoteague, who were bringing the yacht from Norfolk to Chincotea gue. The accident occurred near Fisher’s Island. The occupants of the boat were forced to abandon immediately and get in a small boat. They wish to express their appreciation for the quick action of the Smith’s Is land Coast Guard crew, who came to their rescue in so short a time. “They surely were on the job,” is the expression Taylor and Conner made concerning the crew. Coast Guards men took them to the station and lat er carried them to Magotha where they were sent home. WORCESTER DEMOCRAT, POCOMOKE CITY, MARYLAND T. G.

ARMY OFFICERS MAY RIDE WITH BRITISH PILOTS In the role of observers, Ameri can Army officers may ride along with British pilots when the first new American-made four-motor bombers raid Germany. Reporting this, authoritative sources explained the observers’ as signment would be to report to the Air Corps on the performance of the long-range craft under actual combat conditions. With a similar mission, American naval officers have been stationed for months on ships of the British fleet in the Atlantic and Mediterran ean. Numbers of Army observers al ready are in England ready for the new assignment. Others are believ ed to have gone to Egypt, headquar ters for British operations in the Mediterranean and Balkans. Because of possible diplomatic and military complications, both the War and Navy Departments have been ex tremely reticent concerning activities of American officers in the combat zones. More than 50 Boeing and Consoli dated bombers, capable of cruising 4,000 or 5,000 miles with heavy bomb loads, have been turned over to Brit ain under an arrangement announced in November by General George C. Marshall, War Department Chief of Staff. Not all have been delivered, however. Twenty-six Boeing B-17 planes were exchanged for British-owned en gines manufactured in the United States, and priority rights were given the Royal Air Force to assure early deliveries of a comparable number of Consolidated bombers. General Mar shall said a part of the deal was full reports of their performance in ac tion. Of the Boeings, seven or eight al ready have reached North Africa to bolster defenses of the Suez Canal and possibly to operate in the Bal kans, according to reports reaching Congressional quarters. The first of the Consolidate bomb ers flew last month across the Atlan tic to England, the British announced at the time. Responsible sources said that none of the big craft, each of which is manned by crews of seven or more men, has yet been under fire. Royal Air Force crews are being trained in the United States to op erate the heavy air cruisers. 43,000 Different Designs A total of 43,000 different designs of telephone apparatus for use in nation-wid; telephone service is made by the Western Electric Company, manufacturing and supply unit of the Bell System.

The Governor Secures Much Legislation The session of the General Assem bly, just closed, saw the passage of numerous measures backed strongly by Governor Herbert R. O’Conor to clarify and strengthen the laws per taining to taxation and insurance, both of greatest importance to the revenues of the State and to the safe guarding of the insurance interests of many thousands of Marylanders. Five measures drawn up by the Rawls Commission were enacted in to law, dealing with various phases of the State’s fiscal structure. This Commission appointed two years ago by Governor O’Conor, and headed by William Lee Raw’ls, one of the State’s foremost authorities on fiscal legis lation, made a thorough study of tax structure of the State, and as a re sult of this study had ten bills intro duced, nine of which have passed and are now awaiting the Governor’s sig nature. At the same time, some 29 meas ures drafted at the request of the State Insurance Commissioner, John B. Gontrum, were introduced and passed dealing with details of insur ance administration and licensing, 0 s ■ jfe A\ ftte **<*;; \ 4fe- \\ 15 \ _ M,: 1\ rtHWYlt®® 11 9 t,t us tk c 1 \ j*±**Mj .

Since the appointment of Commis sioner Gontrum by Governor O’Con or in 1939, it has been agreed gen erally by insurance people in Mary land and throughout the country that the State has had the most efficient handling of this department in its history.
