US "

l::ardo Crane 44-1 ~bst of us were a pretty sad bunch after our deactivation. "Ie had, and still are having, a terrific time getting readjusted. In fact we got so d8rn tired having people tell us that after .mile we'd get adjusted after while "Tell, I met a gal the other day who has taken the whole thing with such calm good grace, toot I laughingly ['.sked her if she'd been to a Psychiatrist. She surprised me by replying seriously, ''No -- but I did psychoanalyze myself." So of course I had to know about tha t. It seems that one day she VlFl.S jolted into facing re<'lity by a young brotrer who had heretofore rrore or less hero-worshipped her because she VJRS a flier. She'd been moping around, feeling sorry for herself (as didn't we all!), when he snorted in disgust, nOh, for garsh sakes, you must be getting old! All you do is live in the past!" .il.nd'nith that, slammed the door, leaving her with something to think about. She picked up a pencil and started to write, analyzing herself -- how she felt; vlhy she f el t tha t way; and WM t she was going to do about it? "I realized a lot of things after that," she said. "Myanalysis was qui te reveAling - and believe me, being honest wi th myself was good for me, even if it was hard. As a result of it I finally had my own little three-point program. First: Keep busy. Second: Keep flying -- at least once a week, even if I had to pallm the family jewels! Third: Keep being glad I had the wonderful training and experiences I h,":ld a lVASP,instead as of being sorry I wasn't still flying those beautiful airplanes. Sort of a Pollyanna approach maybe -- but it worked for me." Well -- maybe. But, just between us, I think she's got something there!

At one meeting it was decided tha t the rnain aim and objective of this chapter will be to do everything in the ir power "to secure con.plete recognition for all those who served in the ';lASP program---they believe that we deserve the recognition and benefits accorded to all other wartime ,romen's organizations. f:nd here's some good news for you out of town gals, who might be travelling through San Francisco it ha s been proposed that a permanent "V[cSPNEST" be established there, under the sponsorship of this chapter. At the December 12th meeting, it was suggested that they get a houseboat and fix it over as a sui table next for roving ".JASPS sounds like an excellent idea! The St. I,oritz Hotel was the gathering spot for some 18 girls on December the 20th, to comrnemor8te that date. Nearly all present vJOre their Santiago Blues.t Three of the "Bay Area" newspspers carried adv8.nce publicity. Needless to say, everyone enjoyed themselves!

HUBBA - HUBBA!!!

The Los Angeles Chapter Early in December a meeting was held at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, where plans for a Recognition dinner on or near December 20th were discussed. The desire to be to-gether at this tbne of the year promoted the gathering of some fifty Wasps and several guests of honor at Eaton's in'Beverly Hills on Saturday, December 22nd. They were honored with Miss Jacqueline Cochran's presence, and she held everyone's interest as she enthusiastically related her recent trip around the world as an accredited war correspondent. She said there was evidence everywhere of the inhuman treatment accorded American prisoners by Japs and Nazis. She had the opportunity to see the doc~~entary evidence presented at the Nuernberg trials. The following are ~ few of her remarks, "If I hadn't seen this written evidence, I wouldn't believe the human mind capable of thinking up such devilish forms of torture. The twenty-one men sitting there on trial sbnply 10(jked_like a group of American businessmen. Only two looked the part of criminals, just as in any group one or two might look like gangsters. Goering lo.)ked for all the world like a good natured beer tavern keeper. In every defeated country I visited I felt sorry for the children. In Germany the children are beautiful, after all, only the superior specimens were allowed to survive. Not one Gennan child begs~ They offer to buy food and sweets, but they do not ask for charity." Miss Cochran visited Hannah Reisch, Germany's outstanding woman pilot whom she met during the International Air Races. If Hitler was still alive, she believed that Hannah Reisch had flown him to safety. Also present were several officers of the Civil Air Patrol, and Dr. Mary Crawford, professor at the Uni1J'ersi of Southern California and President of the ',Voman's ty Inte~national Association of Aeronautics. Mr. Pat Hogan, from the Los Angeles Examiner, was press representative. He devoted his entire column in the December the 30th issue to comments of the affair. Miss ~ileen Evans, Chapte~ President was,in charge of arrangements, assisting her were Lola Perkins, Social Chairman of the chapter, Elin G. Harte, SecretaryTreasurer, Callie Kurten, ~ member of the Project Committee, Hally Stires, Business Manager and Betty Williams, Editor. Barbara Searles made very attractive place cards. It was a very successful di~ner party, and it was so good to see such a representative gathering of former classmates, friends and those interested in our organization. Let's have more of these social affairs throughout all chapters. A meeting was held in January at the Civil Air Patrol Headquarters and many plans for the future meetings were discussed. Miss Mardo Crane and Jacqueline T. Harte have been appointed as a Membership Committee, to visit all possible members in this area and increase the organizations' register. The next meeting will be held on February 7th at Lola Perkins' horne, 917 South Stanley St., Los Angeles. The films which were taken at Avenger before deactivation will be shown.

Texas Chapter They have been very busy making plans for a Women Pilots Convention, jointly with the Texas Wing of Women Flyers, the ~inety-Nines and the Wasps. The gala event will take place in Austin, at the Driskill Hotel on the 9th and lOth of February. The program will include 12:30 Luncheon, 2:00 Business' Meeting, 6:00 Cocktail Party, 7:30 Dinner, and 9:00 Dance. Officers from Bergstrom Field will be. invited as escorts for the dinner and dance. Formal dress will be optional. They are planning to have several prominent and interesting speakers who will give the latest infonllation on aviation. However there w ill be plenty of time for "hangar flying tl The following are several projects with which they are concerned: Recommendation that Congress make it legislatively possible for the Army to turn over a abandoned airports and equipment for the use and furtherance of Civil Aviation; A membership drive, urging all eligible girls to join NOW; The compilation of a letter to be sent to the various Senators regarding separate command for the Air Forces, following the action of the New York Chapter in this matter. They have sent a very concise agenda to ell members, stating the organization and policy problems of their chapter. They have a state Newsletter, which is a media of advising all members of any and all important matters which might come up between meetings, besides keeping the girls informed of all interest items concerning the members. The Texas chapter has good organizationt on the abandoned airport project. Would like to see them follow through

"WE ONERE WASPS" This is the first book to be written about the Women Airforce Service Pilots. It contains "a vital day-by-day account of the lllany hilarious and serious happenings which constituted the life of these Flying Females. They worked hard, and though they may have trip~ed over themselves occasionally, they did a wonderful job. So this book is not only about them, but to them. Everyone of those girls should be proud to say 'WE WERE WASPS.' " Winifred Wood Duane 43-? and Dot Swain 44-5 can be proud of their work. CONGRATUL~TIONS to you both.
