Just the same, this earnest fellow, armed with nothing more deadly than a kit of service tools, is doing a plenty good job of throwing monkey wrenches into enemy plans. We ought to know, because one of Buick's many war jobs* is training sol diers to service Buick-built Pratt & Whitney aircraft engines. Ever since May, at the rate of 50 a week, we've been steering them through a tough, eleven-week course that has been singled out for official commenda tion as the most outstanding school of its district by reason of its 94.3% effi ciency rating. We're turning them back to the Air Corps in a steady flow now - trained, keen and able mechanics who know how to keep engines turning up their peak power for any air-borne task that comes along. They're good, clean, earnest, intelligent American kids who are working like blazes at a job with little respite and less hope for glory. We know. We've met a lot of them and we're proud to have known every single one. *PRODUCTION NOTE: You'll be glad to know 'we are meeting schedules on every one of our ¢war assignments: Pratt& Hhitney enginesfor bombers, steel shellcasingsfor our busy guns, 'vitalpartsfortanks, and so on and so on. >1° "Buy U.
