FOR ACTIVE SERVICE
Will Require 1000 Years at
Present Rate to Equip
Efficient Aero Corps
Governor Withycomhe has been noti
fied by the Aero Club of America that
the Curtiss Aeroplane Company has of
fered to train an officer of the militia
of each of the 48 states gratis.
As Commander-in-Chief of Oregon's
military forces he has been asked to
select an OrOegnian t take advantage
of this offer.
The governor hag conferred with Ad
jutant General (ieo. A. White, reuost
ing the general to take steps towards
the selection of an officer or private
whose training will be most valuable to
the Militia in this connection. The
training will take place at the Curtiss
school at San Diego, California. The
Aero Club states that such a course as
will be given the Oregon representa
tive is worth 00.
Through the generostly of Emerson
McMillin, of New York, the Aero Club
is adding 10 per cent to the if 100,
which will be contributed towards the
traveling expenses of the aeronautic
The Aero Club letter is in part as
"This contribution of the Curtiss
Company to tho National Aeroplane
Fund will add 48 trained militia of
ficers to our aerial forces as well as en
able the militia of most of the states
to take the first step toward organizing
an aviation section.
"Conditions being as critical as
President Wilson states them, this
country needs immediately five thous
and trained aviators. (lad this coun
try a reserve of five thousand trained
aviators, it would be in the hnppy
position of the porcupine, which spends
its days in peaceful pursuits, banning
no one, but is ever rendv to defend it
self. "Tho aeronautical equipment of the
Army and Navy consists of less than
twenty aeroplanes in commission, and
a dozen ordered, which lire needed to
replace some of the aeroplanes in com
mission. The plans being considered
by the present congress aim to only
provide less than 200 aeroplanes to the
Army and Navy combined. No pro
vision whatever is made to provide
aeronautical equipment to the Militia.
"Hut it is being realized that if the
Army has only about 10 aeroplanes iu j
commission at tho end of seven years,
when it should have 1,000; and the
navy lias only about 10 aeroplane, in
commission nt the end of five years,
when it should have 2,0n0; at this rate
it would take tho best part of 1,000
years to supply the Army's and Navy's
aeronautical needs. I he Army, .Mivv,
and Militia need 2.ri,O00,0OO for aero
nautics. Less than that will leave this
country behind the thud and fourth
class powers, who now have many times
more aeroplanes than this country bns.
"It is geneinllv appreciated that so
long as the Army and Navy are so
short of men, the militia forms thu
baoMiono of our detenses. there is
also being appreciated the fact that
the efficiency of the militia can only
extend as far as the menus provided
for equipment and training will reach."
