Students taking CAA instruction can have their flying instructors submit information to the local -board which may result in defer ment, he suggested. Dykstra em phasized that no aviation school can guarantee postponement for service for its students.

Don West '4l, the mag's optimis tic editor, hints that the issue may even come out before school closes for the holidays. He hopes! changing their customs and man ner of living, and that the natives of Latin America resented this very much. "We can not hope to become friends•with the natives, of South America if we treat them as in feriors," de cla r e d Dr. Gray. "They must be regarded as equals to attain any political or economic successes with them." "President Roosevelt is well liked. in South America," stated Dr. Gray. "With South Am erica cut off from Europe as the result of the war, we must re double our efforts to straighten out our difficulties with the Latin Am erican nations and come to a real understanding with them."
