June 21.—About $1,000,000,000 is needed to put the aerial arm of the U. S. army upon a war footing, according to a statement made to a sub-committee of the house military affairs committee by Alan R. Hawley, president of the Aero club of America. The sub-committee had- under consideration a bill Introduced by Representative Hnrlbert of New York providing for the creation of a department of aeronautics to be presided over hy a secretary of cabinet rank. "To make an aeronautical contribution substantial enough to enable our allies to strike a decisive Mow," ton- tinned Mr. Hawley, "there will probably be -needed 100,000 aeroplanes and between 10,000 and 20,000 aviators to be trained In America. This should, of course, be done In the shortest time possible. • "Great Britain,' according to authentic reports, ls producing 4,000 aeroplanes per month, and Prance as many, but they are used as fast as they are manufactured. "There are even more reasons tor creating a department of aeronautics ln the United Statee than there was for creating the British aad French mlnlsteries, because England and France had large military and naval administrations forces Which It seemed advisable to utilize at once. T*ey feared"that to attempt to operate the already established air servlee from the war and navy departments might lead to confusion.
