People By FRANK CAREY WASHINGTON (AP) The U.S. Public Jfealth Service has reported evidence sug- gesting one in five American adults has experi- enced a nervous breakdown or felt one coming on. In disclosing some findings H termed surprising, the agency reported nearly 60 per cent of the adult population is fidgety and tense at times to the point of being bothered. The agency questioned adults representing the na- tion's ni-million population of civilian, non-institutional per- sons between 18 and 70. Persons interviewed were questioned not only on their history of actual, or threat- ened, nervous breakdowns, but also on whether they had ever been bothered by: Nervousness, psychological inertia, insomnia, trembling lands, nightmares, perspiring Five Held In Fraud Case SUMMERSIDE, P.E.I.

The survey found propor- tionately more women than men reported nervous break- downs. Women reported breakdown (lireats almost twice as fre- quently as did men, and had significantly higher rates for the 12 distress symptoms.

"The kids flying today have the same spirit we did." he says. "Tbey just have better equipment." LeBontillier helped train U.S. pilots [luring the Second World War and later flew for HoHy wood films.

To- day he admits to being "something more than is actively running a Las Vegas pharmaceutical distrib- uting company, and recently collaborated on a book cover- ing the controversy about who killed the Rr Baron. Richthofen shot down 80 Al- lied planes before he himself was shot down April 21, 1918, over Allied territory in France. CREDITS CANADIAN LeBoutillier remembers the dogfight with absolute clarity, he says, because "it was the greatest fight of any war under any circumstances." Noting that Australian ground forces claimed credit far killing the Baron, Le- Boutillier sr.ys it also could have been his fellow pilot, Capt. Roy Brown of Carleton Place, Ont., who stcaled the Baron less than a minute be- fore the Australians began fir- ing from the ground. The Ca- nadian air force officially credits "By God, I saw Brown's tracer bullets hitting into the fuselage around the cockpit area. The Baron turned his bead, knew he had been fired on, and continued chasing an- other Canadian pilot, Lieut. Wilfred (Wop) a native of Edmonton. LeBoutillier says Richthofen may have lost his bearings because of the dogfight in an unusual easterly wind and be- cause he was chasing May, a green pilot on his first patrol who was flying apart from the Allied formation. Eleven Sopwith Camels cf the Allied air forces tied into 27 German planes of Richtho- fen's so-called Flying Circus on the famous day, says Le- Boutillier. "We all came back that day on both Richtho- fen. "When we took off the weather was just clearing. IL had been bad. Still there was some haze am! fog.

Such action vyould clear the way for ratification of the treaty, previously worked out in the Geneva arms talks. Soviet disarmament expert A. A. RoscMn, opening (he arms debate in the assembly's main political committee, expressed the hope that the treaty "will become an effective interna- tional enactment serving all countries ard peoples." U.S. Ambassador Charles W. Yost said: "We hope that this year (he assembly will embrace the treaty and request that it be opened for signature and ratifi- cation at the earb'est possible date." The assembly is expected to accept the treaty after debate. The Geneva disarmament com- mittee has worked on it for two years and it has been amended at the insistence of small coun- tries, including Canada. Air Board Kepeats Hijack Call MONTREAL (CP) The In- ternational Air Transport Asso- ciation has repeated an urgent call to governments to establish effective deterrents against in- flight violence and aerial hijjck The call went out at the asso- ciation's four-day general meet- ing in Tehran last week. Its res- olution was made public today by the IATA office here. The resolution adopted imam mously "notes with regret that national laws in many states to not yet provide an effective de- terrent in that they do not as- sure prosectuion and punish- ment of these criminal acts ra- the extradition of the persons responsible."

In about 30 minutes we reached this position and bumped into these au-cralt and got tangled with them. "Everybody was mixed up. I never saw so many German triploncs in my life.

"I broke off because there were so many after me and some of the other Camels. I was a couple jf thousand feet above Brown and May. I no- ticed that Brown came in to make a pass at the red tri- piane. The red triplane was chasing Lieut. May low, over our lines and along the Somme River. I could see Broivn's tracer bullets hitting the red triplane in and around the cockpit area. "I was above and to the loft. Brown made his pass and pulled up in a climbing turn lo (lie left. In doing so his right wing blanked out his view of the red Iriplane. It was about 25 to 30 seconds later that the reel triplane seemed to slow down and make a shallow (urn to the right and glide down.

His dive took him rigiil down into the middle of the fight and his guns jammed.
