Wilkin Is Now Sergeant
Will Wilkms is now a 1st Sergeant of
the 1 33rd Aero Squadron atatiuned at
Rockwell Field, A letter from him
aayat "1 left Berkeley Ground School
on April 1 for my preaent atatlon. I
am enjoying life and like the flying
game. Hying Sergeant la a new rating
for the aviation service and commis
sions in this branch will not be given
to every flyer hereafter which ta for
the good of the aervice I think although
1 am hoping to get a commission either
for flying or non-flying. At preaent 1
am a npn-commlssioned officer, lat Ser
geant of a flying squadron. Thla squad
ron wa created aince 1 arrived at the
Island. 1 am in charge of a splendid
claaa of 122 men and some were very
well-to-do in civilian life. It la very
warm down here and at times I am re-
minded of Gilliam county duet storms,
especially when a wind cornea from
lower California or Mexico which la 14
miles from here. Gilliam county la not
the duatieat place in the world, although
we uaed to think o occasionally. We
eat dust here some afternoons and the
higher we get In the air the more we
notice it San Diego ia a beautiful ctty
and certainly nice thla time of year.
Today we all ahelved our O Da (olive
drabs) and donned khaki uniforms which
are much more comfortable in this
climate. Ex-mayor Mitchell of New
York la one of us lesrning the flying
, game. He I a major but common as
1 an old shoe. A week ago Sunday I
went out to Balboa Park and aaw
Charles and Bob Flttmaurlce. They
were packing up and I think are some
diatanee from here now. Both were In
the beat of epirtta. I wiah I could tel
you more of our game here but to show
hat it Is important will aay that we
cannot leave the Island without a pais
and civilians cannot land here at all.
Tou may rest aasured that thlnga are
O. K. and the time will come when our
branch will have a big part to play in

Labor Outlook Bright
"The farm labor situation just
at the present time is well in
hand," says J. W. Brewer, farm
help specialist. The establish-
ment of a uniform "wage of $60
in tbe wheat-raising counties has
done away with one farmer bid
ding against another for farm
labor and has resulted in a con
siderable less movement of tran
sient labor continually on the
lookout fur riiofc pay. . ,

The big cities are not getting
the credit for putting oyer the

are doing their part but it is the

sponsible for the showing made.

Appreciates Home News
Staryl C. Auetin is now a corporal In
the 834th Aero Squadron stationed at
Garden City, Long Island, N. Y. He
saye: 'Thi being Saturday afternoon
means a half holiday in camp and moat
of tbe boys are either getting ready to .
go to town or writing letters. Atpree
ent we arc camped oa th eld site of
Camp Mills where the Oregon boys
spent last winter but the eamp ia Un
proved quite bit t think. The tents
are all ditched, the squadron, streets
graded and graveled and tbe roads are
paved.' They are sou improving is ana
claim it will be one of the beet camps
in the United States. It is an Ideal lo
cation with two large aviation fielda
adjoining and has the advantage of be
log cloae to the largest harbor la the
country together with plenty of level
grounds for drilL Speaking of drill, !
haven't done any drilling since I left
Texas in February but have been ia
quarantine three weeka and in school
two weeka. Not, a thing to do Wbea
we were in quarantine except take three
medical inspections every day which t
will admit were rather strenuous bpt
necessary. Moved up to this eamp bt
Monday and have been ou detail work
aince, digging ditches and workiitg t&ei
roads. There ia not much doing in the
aviation camps at present although on
a nice day we can look in any direction
and see 7 or 8 aeroplanes but it is get
ting so common that we never give
any attention unless it is some- stunt
artist and we watch to see if he tumbles.
There are , two . French war .machines
at one field and a French aviator who
sometimes goes upjuat to sjhow every
one what real flying ia. 1 have seen
him go up 200 feet and atari looping
tbe loop, which is considered rmty dan
gerous at less than 1000 feet but be
doesn't seem to mind it la the least. I
often wish the folks at home could see
us at our work; men who never did a
day's work in their life before working
with a pick and shovel the same as we
poor guys who have worked all our lives.
The army is no respecter of person;
the sons of the "big guns" have to
obey orders the Same aa anyone eke.
This is a great life; I have never felt
better. Thank you for the Globe which
is just like' a letter from home and I
assure you ia eagerly read, ads and all.

don't know how long we will be here."
