MOSq U/T... WIT/7H DEdDLY 8T//IQ / "Mosquitoes" are bad in Europe this year. Spawned and bred in Britain, these lightning fast, plywood bombers are whining over the big Rhine cities in broad daylight, or darting in at dusk to lead the way for the big fellows ... raising welts and leaving scars awful to Nazi eyes. It's Britain's pride-this new "Mosquito" that's streaking over Europe-and it's propellers for the "pride of Britain" that we're building here. They're made by the many thousands, and for other bombers, too: British Lancasters ... Amer ican Flying Fortresses and Liberators. Bearing these planes aloft, each Nash-Kelvina tor-made Hamilton Standard propeller is an en gineering masterpiece-so beautifully machined that a puff of a man's breath can set it turning. Into these "props" the men of Nash-Kelvinator are pouring not only their skill, but their heart's blood and the sweat of their brows! For their swift hands are guided to new records of accuracy and output by the knowledge that on these blades there ride the lives of their own brothers, and their own sons!
