The real strength of Democratic countries is complete unity in the present world crisis. Washington Daybook By Peter Edson NEA Washington Correspondent Washington (NEA) Plans for a 90-to-100-group Air Force are now being prepared in Washington.

Present authorized strength of the Air Force is 70 groups. As this congressional authorization is being carried out by the Air Force, it will be a 69-group organization, with a number- of separate squadrons for troop weather reporting and other 'special missions. Up until the Korean crisis broke, Department of Defense plans called' for expansion of the present 48-group-plus Air Force to 58 groups by the end of 1951. In a second stage, the 58 groups were to be increased to 89 by the end of 1953. The 69-group Air Force was based on support for an Army of 800,000 men.

Now that the Army is talking about ground force strength of 1,500,000 men, a doubling of Air Force strength might seem to be in order. Present authorized strength for the 48-group Air Force is 416,000 men. For the 58-group Air Force, 568,000 men would be No figures have been given on how many men would be required for a 69 or a 100-group Air Force. Explain what?"

"Not speaking as the city clerk; I'm asking as the city treasurer trying to do his job." He said he was getting tired of trouble "over appropriations" and "running to the state board to get straightened out." Mr.

Montgomery said the tax representative was right, that only one exemption could be claimed. Mr. Lucas said he h3d been told by the chairman of the aviation commission that he had no ery asked.
