So far they have served us well, We believe that most of the news has been submitted; and where there has been failure to do so, perhaps the primary responsibility is ours as we went about the task of getting organized. Civilians and soldiers equally have shared in the submission of news reports. Hill Field as a going concern; Hill Field doing its war job; Hill Field training men for the battle lines; Hill Field repairing planes and equipment; Hill Field storing and shipping supplies; Hill Field at work and at play; Hill Field growing to mammoth proportions, becoming more and more important in the functional set-u- p Air Service Command: This is the story of the world-wid- e we are trying to tell, this is the story that a hundred small news items, apparently with no intimate relationship, do tell as they appear week after week in the columns of this paper. It is the story of America at work and at war. depends The cost of this newspaper is less than one and a half cents per copy per reader. We wish to thank the Civilian Welfare Council, its members d and president, Mr. Paul West, for their cooperation and the granting of the additional funds making possible the present expansion in size. We wish to thank the Special Service department for its helpfulness in organizing the military news sources and in arranging for the distribution of the papers to military personnel; we wish to thank the staff employes of the Civilian Personnel branch of the Personnel and Training section for their hard work in news gathering and in performing a job of newspaper distribution to the civilians. After all it is worth while to point out that the huge audience of almost 20,000 readers, not including members of employes' families, which receives each issue of this paper, is one of the largest in the state of Utah; it is just possible, in fact, it is the second largest news reading audience in the state. Not alone because of its size, but because of the important character of its constituent parts, the editors of this paper feel their responsibility very keenly.

This issue is an Important milestone in 'the life of the new tabloid Hillf ielder. Today it makes its appearance with 12 in place of eight pages. Thus it is much bigger, and as time goes on, we this hope it will also be much better. With the additional space, news publication is enabled to give its audience a far greater serve the to better coverage; it will have the facilities necessary new many interests of the field; it will have sufficient space to add features, including a double sports page, and we hope soon, an additional comic strip. For the many expressions of good will and warm commenda- -' tion which have been generally voiced by soldiers and civilians alike, the editors wish to say they are grateful. Constructive suggestions have been made by many of our interested friends, and they have been acted upon. The editors feel that this publication has served its purpose in past issues if, in reporting the day to day events which crowd each busy week, a true picture of the manifold activities of the field has been presented in order that the military can know what the civilian is doing, in order that the civilian can learn of some of the problems and perplexities which are being faced by the military.
