numbers of units wings carrier air groups and similar terms Its real measure of strength is more accurately gauged in terms of the force which it could exert and the destructive power that it could deliver in the event of an emergency The power carried by a single airplane today equals that of an entire bomber force in World War II and is so large that it almost defies the imagination While this trend will continua to some degree it should not ba overlooked that our other forces both land and sea will continue to make a substantial contribu tion to our total defense IOWAN KILLED i MIDWEST Wyo
