At primary schools they logged some 65 hours of flying in 200 horsepower training planes and won their places in the 450 horsepower trainers at Randolph Field. Early in August Taylor, a former basketball, baseball and football star, and Wright a fine golfer, will win their wings as second lieutenants in the Air Corps Reserve."
