Mr. BROOKS:

That was the required number in the squadron I happened to visit, and it occurred to me that it was a large number. Has the department evef considered the possibility of lowering the number of flights in a tour so as to make it possible for some of those young men who have been trained and who are anxious to go overseas-and there are thousands of them-to take the place of other men who have had a number of tours? I saw a number of the men in our air force, and it seemed to me that many of them were tired and would welcome a lowering of the number of flights required in a tour. I mention thi^as a possible solution of the problem facing tne minister of arranging for the sending of these men overseas.
