Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 2, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta TUESDAY, APRIL THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD PAGE Recruits Wanted Air Force Seeking Ground Tradesmen 18 to. 25 Years of Sqdn, Ldr. Spafford, D.F.C, Addresses Jaycees Members of the Junior Charafeer of Cora.ro.erct; were guen an insight into the requirements and opportunities of the Rovai Canacian Air Force- Monday night Lhev feeird an address by Sqon.-Ldr. TV. H. Spafford. DJP.C- Sq5n.-Ldr. Spafford is a member of the interim force assessment board at No. 2 Air Coiamand. Win- nipeg.. The officer isas accompan- ied by Fit. If. A. S. Collins. IXF.C. Public Reiauons OSicer for Ko. 2 Air Command. Sqdn--Ldr. Spafford Junior Ofeaasber members thai the asr force is really seeking recruits from smosg j oaths just out of high school. Many of the men who been and are In the force ha-.e seen fi7e or sis sears of active service, and they are reaiiy past the ideal age for enlistment for air force ser- vice. The R_C.A_F. would like to get recruits at the present time for ground tradesmen, and the age bracket from which they would like to acquire them is from 38 to 25 years, the airman said. The top limit of 25 jears will be extended'io take in men TV hose ages, less the manner of jears they served on active duiv, are not more than 23. These men. regardless of ine branch of the armed forces in which they served, provided it was in an Empire unit, will be able to count their active duty towards the air force pension upon retirement. Praises Ground Crew The air force officer had the high- est praise for the ground crew men of the who served in the Second World War. They were really the forgotten men. he said, point- ing out that they had "slaved at times" to get. crafc readv for autv. They earned out their duties in the "mud, rain and out-of-doors and not in the comfort of hangars. At times they were call- ed upon, to do their work almost in the "irons lines, servicing aircraft on the forward airdromes. In spite of the inclemen; working conditions, they were expected to get the planes into the they conducted their jobs cheerfuilv and well, he said. ?or the permanent force ground Lemon Juice Recipe Checks Arthritic Pain Quickly If Ton soSe? firosa or pain, try tins sinsjj'e, inexpeasiire xecioe. a padogc of RH-CC Prccupooa frosa JTOT Mix JC quarr of -KIICT add YOB used only 2 tablesjocnfols two times a 4iT.

There are very few trades which will take men wifh less than a grade eleven education. TLa force have eight acu-.e squadrons operating under Eastern Air Command. No. 1 Air Command. No. 2 Air Commaad. and Western Air Command, he said. The Eastern and Western Air Commands will be torfcmg chiefly in conjuacuon with the Navy on operational duties, tihile the remaining two commanos will be primarily set up as training units. Service Life Advantages Speakmg of the advantages of service life in the air the offi- cer said that, pay for the permanent force men. particularly those carry- ing out ground duties, will be in- creased. Exact rates of pay have not as yet been set, however. Bar- racks will not be crowded; there will be single beds for the men in- stead of double bunks, and fewe- men will be quartered m each build- ing. There will be living-out allow- ances and allowances for the wife and children of the married ser- vicemen. Sqdn.-Ldr. Spafford emphasized that the servicemen need have no fear of unemployment; he has ac- commodation .supplied and medical services available free of charge. At the end of 20 years of service, which .ncludes service during wartime, he is able to get a pension of 20-50ths of his salary. In addition the post-war members of the R C.A.F. have full recreation- al facilities on the station aad everything possible Is done to make their life on the station normal and enjoyable ia every way. The airman also receives 30 days leaie-oi-ab- sence wiih pay and travelling time coning the year, and may. depending on the circumstances, get certain additional leaves. QncstfeM IB a question and answer period following his address Sqdn.-Ldr. Spafford said that wartime service counts only for the actual time of service, and cot double as many! believe. The airmen sign up for a period of five vears, and then, at the ead of that time they are offered the ODOortunirv of signing on for an additional five years. Actually, they may get out of the RCJLP. any time that they really desire to leave. Ground crew personnel in the post-war force will specialize on one particular trade, he said, but they will also be taught a. number of other trades. The training will be more intensive than that given dur- ing the war years. The new recruit in the post-war is nou forced into some trade he does not want, as some-times happened during war- time. A vote of thanks to Sqdn.-Ldr. Spafford was on behalf of the Junior Chamber by Bernard Simmons. 1200 Attend Annual MA.

March Wedding It is alwavs well to know exactly where vou "are going. Old Man Covore "knew exactly where he was going. But had you been watching urn. vou would not have guessed where" he was going. You see, he was not going there in the short- est, most direct way. Ee was craftv to do that. Where was he ;omg? He was going up w> the dam of Paddy the Beaver. Every few minutes he stopped to look, listen, and try the air with ills fcgpn nose, fafn time he grinned as he listened :o one sound that was steady, insistent, louder than all others. It was the soucd. of rushing water, the sound of La-igh- ing Brook, no longer gentlr mur- muring or chuckling or laughing, but shouting and roaring and fill- ing the Green Forest with its noise. "Tes, sir, there is a hole in. tnat dam and the water from that Beavr pond is running out. Unless Paddy and Mrs. Paday can stop that leak soon there won't IK any pond. That could mean a couple of Beaver dinners for some he trotiM say to himself. Then he would grm and lick his lips and it very plain whom, he meant by that one. Ee kept stray from Brook. He couldn't even see it He didn't need to for he could hear it Ee was crafty enough to kriow ihat if he were beside is he might be seen by some one "who would guess where he was going and might carry word to those Beavers. Blacky the Crow or Sammy Jay would" love to do jus; tnat. So he kept from Laughing Brook, but was going in the same general dnrection as if he had been running beside it So IE was tha; when he met Lightfoot toe Deer the latter didrt't guess where he was bound. Old Man Coyote sat down and grinned as laghrfoot as the latter stopped and began to paw the ground with one forefoot in a threatening man- ner. "I said Old Man Coyote.' that you were naif as big as yot are. What a dinner you woult make! What a dinner' But even vathout your horns you are a little too much for me he grinned again. "Don't think that Tm afraid of you." snorted Xaghtfoot. replied Old Man Coy- ote. "Whv should you be' Bv the way, ho-v are Mrs. Lightfoot and the twins'' And where are "What is that to you'" Ugnt- foot asked. Then he answered his own question. "It is none of your he snorted.
