Graduates of School of Aviation Medicine.—  Col. John R. McGraw, acting commandant of the Air Force School of Aviation Medicine since the death of Brig. Gen. Edward J. Kendricks, in addressing a class of 90 medical officers of the Air Force and Army and from nine other nations at Randolph Air Force Base, April 5, said:"The 16 graduates from abroad in this class come to more than the entire list of those who attended the School in its first 23 years. Up to the start of World War II we had graduated only 13 surgeons of other lands, and four of these were from the Philippines, at that time a possession of the United States."In the decade since the War, we have extended our roster of graduates in other countries to 209, and they are advancing the techniques of aviation medicine in 40 nations outside the orbit of the Soviet Union, besides our own."
