QIMULTANEOUSLY with Washington's announceO ment that movie actors would be deferred from military service to help maintain the nation's morale came Hollywood's statement that many stars, though not slated for front-line duty, would help to defbnd their country as pilots with the Civil Air Patrol and other semi-military organizations. Cynical leaders who detect the rich aroma of press-agentry in this news are, for once, over-skeptical. In a city whose residents have contributed more revenue to commercial airlines than any similar group in the world, there are a great many glittering stars who are capable, serious, enthusiastic pilots, and eager to put their planes and pilotage at the nation's service. No new-found interest, the movie capital was airconscious long before Jean Harlow and Jimmy Hall brought the glories of aviation to the screen in Howard Hughes' "Hell's Angels." From Wallace Beery, who first flew in 1919, and Ruth Chatterton, who soloed in 1926 to become Hollywood's first licensed woman pilot, to Paul Henreid, refugee actor from Axis-annexed Austria, the movie people have been strong for aviation. The twenty actor-prlots on these pages have all made flight a serious matter. They are, therefore, more than ready for induction into service with the California Aero Police and the Civil Air Patrol attached to the California State Guard, two organizations which have already been assigned to patrol of coast-line,
power lines, and aqueducts. Unchallenged patriarchs of film city flight are Wallace Beery, top-salaried star, and Paul Gustine, once a star, now a bit player. lhe former, who now owns a Howard, has logged more than 5,000 hours during the past twenty years-no mean mark for part-time flying. Gustine, formerly an American Airlines' pilot,

is credited with nearly

10,000 hours.

Several of today's stars have made aviation a business, presumably an ace-in-the-hole for an uncertain future. Edgar Bergen, who puts the words in Challie McCarthy's mouth, owns one of the best-known Coast schools specializing in blind flying instruction. At nearby Van Nuys, Jean Parker and Richard Arlen, respectively, help operate the Parker-Dawson Flying Service and the Arlen-Probert Flying Service. Margaret Sullavan is a director and major stoekholder of T.W.A.
