USO is launching a nationwide campaign this fall for funds to carry through its services until lh nd of 1947. Intent on lul- fllling its responsibilities to the young Americans who won uie war and those who are winning the peace, USO has set a goal of in million dollars in the current drive. Although the battle-clouds nave cleared, thousands of American servicemen still will be overseas thrnimhont 1947. In addition to occu pation forces, military and naval personnel will be stauonea in such far-off places as uie rnuip- plnes, Panama, Alaska, Hawaii, Newfoundland and the Antilles. Thousands In Hospitals. On the home front. Uncle Sam's military and naval uniforms still dot the American scene while thousands bf veterans, maimed by war, still are confined in hospitals. Foreseeine the continued neea for USO services, both the army and navy requested the organ ization to continue Its program , for 1947. President Truman has riven his unaualified endorse ment to the drive, urging that the appeal "should have prompt, generous and universal support." Maior undertakings during the forthcoming year will be mainte nance of USO clubs near camps ana hosnitals in the United States, sta tion lounees and travelers aid serv ices, USO clubs overseas and USO camp shows in hospitals.

Further flexibility was reauired of USO after the war with drafting and enlistment of 18-year-olds. Emphasis Em-phasis in the USO program shifted from more mature activities to those popular with teen-agers. When veterans' hospitals began filling up with war casualties, USO altered its program to Include rec reational and other services for those confined to hosnital wards. With the changing scene, many USO clubs have been eliminated in cities which no longer have servicemen serv-icemen stationed nearby. Native sons of those cities, however, still are in uniform and tney are among those whom USO is serving in re mote locales There's still a big morale Job to do for the one and a half million men who will be in service through out 1947, USO directors insist, and the organization proposes to fulfill its obligations until the end of 1947, when It too will seek its "honor able discharge."

The new development differs from the robot plane since the full automatic auto-matic flight is performed in a plane without a "mother ship." It is possible pos-sible with the automatic flight con troller for a plane to take off by "Dushbutton" and reach a destina tion without further manipulation of any Controls. The device regulates the Diane's altitude, sends the plane Into glider range and operates the landing gear. When Uie Diane touches the runway, the throttle automatically cuts back and the brakes are ap plied automatically.
