At Air Force "Escape And Survival" School
Reno -- The controversial "Escape And Survival" School operated by the U. S. Air Force at Stead Air Force Base near Reno, was opened to the press yesterday, and here is one of the realistic tableaux observed. The men with their hands on their heads are "prisoners" being herded by "enemy" captors into a compound under the menacing guns of a tank. The school teaches air Force men in a 17 day course how to take care of themselves if captured, ways and means of escape and methods of survival in enemy-held territory. It also teaches how to resist "brainwashing" techniques of their captors. (1955)

Titleless But not Undecorated.
New York -- Arturo Godoy, the Chilean challenger, walks to his dressing room after a futile fight to lift Joe Louis' heavyweight title. Arturo weathered almost seven rounds at Yankee Stadium without much damage; using the same crouch and cling tactics which carried him through 15 rounds of his first fight with the Brown Bomber. But Joe caught him right as the seventh round was ending. Arturo dropped. From then on it was a question of time, and not much time either. Arturo was dropped twice in the next round and referee Billy Cavanaugh stopped the bout to award Joe Louis technical knockout victory in one minute 24 seconds of the eighth round. Arturo may not have a title-but he is not entirely undecorated-notice his battered face. (1940)
