I notice by the program that this was to be a progress report, new aspects of control. I'd like to narrow the scope a little bit, at least for my remarks; they will be essentially confined to activities of MAC, Military Airlift Command. There are 10 major commands in the Air Force. I'd like to reduce the word progress to lower case letters, at least; and I'd like to deemphasize the word new, for most of these things are not brand new for us. The scope of this problem is world wide, air force wide; and I'm going to confine my remarks essentially to activities on MAC bases, of which there are ten in the continental United States and two island bases, Kindley AFB on Bermuda and Lodges in the Azores. But we'll take a brief look at this on a world wide basis just to orient ourselves.
