Ground for 440 new federal hous ing units with three and four bed rooms in the Ogden and Hill Field area was broken this week. The projects, located at Bonneville Park in Ogden, Sahara Village and at Anchorage, near the Clearfield Naval Supply depot, are expected to be completed within five months. One hundred and eighty of the units will be at Bonneville, 200 at aanara Village and 60 at Anchor age. Rental fees for the units have not been determined yet, and will probably not be set until the de velopments are near completion. The homes will contain three and four bedrooms because experience nas shown that occupying families in this area are larger than average. As single men and married men without children are bein drafted, larger sized families are becoming predominant. The dwelling units, to be built by the Robert E. McKee Construe tion firm, will be of concrete blocks. Ceilings and walls will probably be of gypsum boards, though the use of plaster has not been definitely ruled out at this time. The homes will not be the Utt3e calf in but """ nere, nas are Jnvestigat-of the accident in W,ho Three officers and 11 enrolled members of the Women s Army Corps arrived on Hill Field Mon conday to form the first WAC tingent of the Army Air Base here.

Berman, commanding officer of Ogden Air Service Command, and others for their efficient handling of fire hazard at time of plane crash. Members of the Hill Field fire department take a bow this week following a letter of commendation and congratulation from Major General Walter H. Frank. He cited their handling of the plane crash last June 2 in hangar No. 1 when one person was killed and a large quantity of gasoline spilled which might have resulted in a conflagration had the department not acted with dispatch. "It is the desire of the officers of this unit," Major General Frank's letter read, "to extend "their commendation to Chief W. C. Jensen and members of his fire department on their quick action in neutralizing the gasoline and oil which had leaked from the crashed aircraft to the floor of the hangar. "It is felt that this prompt action prevented what possibly could have caused a serious fire." Other letters of commendation were received from Col. Morris Berman, commanding officer Ogden Air Service Command; Col. Lilburn D. Fator. Base commander. Hill Field; and Capt. Nedwin R. Weber, Base Security Officer, Hill Field.

Gordon had been working on the repair job here for two weeks. He is survived by his wife, now living in Salt Lake City. She Is prominent in the Women's auxilary of the Veterans of Foreign Wars. When the accident occurred, at 2:15 in the afternoon, the victim was walking up the sloping hangar roof, hugging the steel strips which are set in the portions of the roof. Evidently the steel strip and the glass both gave way, and he plunged to hu death. The accident took place only a few feet from the gaping rent in the roof left when a light bomber crashed there during s snow storm almost two months ago. glass-enclos- ed Attendance Record Continues Better The drive for perfect attendance as USACs mechanic learners class es was near realization this week, as figures for the last week revealed 96.3 perfection.
