Bomber Crews Now Wear Body Armor Protection Found Especially to Benefit Gunners Bomber crew members of the Eighth Air Force are now wearing the modern short skirt version of the battle dress common to the knights of King Arthur's court. When flying over enemy terri tory, the members wear a body armor to sheathe them from neck to hip, and .as protection against missiles of relatively low velocity, which have been found to cause the majority of wounds. The armor is a thin steel plate weighing 20 pounds. Its base is with tranverse a canvas slip-o- n pockets into which plates of steel are slipped. It consists of front and rear covers suspended from the shoulders and laced together along the side.

Decision to make the survey fol lowed a meeting of members of the Ogden chamber of commerce re tail merchants division and other chamber groups with Public Relations officers and representatives of the Army and Navy installations and members of the OCD offices in the Ben Lomond hotel during the luncheon hour Tuesday a week ago. The meeting was called at the request of C. N. Woods, chairman of the OCD Child Welfare and related committees, to determine what could be done to provide care for children in this age group whose parents are working. Reports were made that facilities for the care of children between two and six years of age are adequate in the . nursery schools, but the older children are greatly neglected and in need of constant supervision. Hill Field will join other military installations in mak-g a survey of their employes to determine how many children between six and sixteen years of age mfght be in need of organized supervision and care, while similar surveys will be made by the separate business and industrial institutions in Ogden. A complete report of these demands will be made to the Ogden committee of child health and protection which will, providing there is sufficient need, submit a request to the Ogden City Board of Education for applications tot funds under the Lanham act to carry on such an activity through the city schools. Lanham funds must receive application through tne puduc scnooi system. Representatives of the Armv and Navy depots attending the lunch eon were Major A. L. Anderson of Ogden Adjutant General Depot; Major Robert R. Renfro, Lt. A. B. Wanamaker, and Viva Oldroyd of Hill Field; Lt.
