ByFE. J. MAGNIN
Cincinnati, to you and to the
average Yank soldier, is more or
less just a place famous for good
beer. But right here at Drew Field
is a handsome, human example of
a much more important Cincin-
nati war product-one that will
do a great deal more damage to
Axis pipe dreams of conquest than
all the beer in the world.
We're referring to Major Wil-
liam E. Zins, who only three and
a half years ago was working in
the experimental laboratories of
an aircraft plant and dreaming of
a career for himself in the air.
Major Zins, who claims Cincin-
nati for his home town, but is also
claimed by San Diego, Calif., as
one of its famous sons, came to
Drew recently after establishing
an enviable record as CO. of a
fighter squadron at Howard Field,
Panama Canal Zone.
His aerial career really started
when he was still in Roger Bacon
High School in Cincinnati. It was
there that he decided his future
was in the air, and made up his
mind that he was going to do
something about it.
He did. He went to the Univer-
sity of Cincinnati to study and did
so well that he was graduated in
1937 with the degree of Aeronau-
tical Engineer. From there he
went into practical work in the
Consolidated Aircraft Corporation
in San Diego and worked on ex-
perimental wing design a year.
With war clouds over Europe
growing blacker and blacker,
Major Zins decided that the lab-
oratory wasn't exactly the place
to be and applied for appointment
as an Aviation Cadet and .was ac-
cepted June 29, '1939. He was
graduated from Kelly Field on
March 23, the following year,
after preliminary training at
Ryan Primary Flying School in
San Diego, Randolph Basic and
Brooks Advanced Flying School
in San Antonio. He was commis-
sioned a second lieutenant in the
Air Corps Reserve the day after
graduation, and on July 1, 1941,
-was commissioned in the regular
Major Zins served with the
40th Fighter Squadron at Self-
ridge Field, Mich., for a year be-
fore being transferred to a squad-
ron at Dale Mabry Field. He flew
to Panama after the Japs attacked
Pearl Harbor. and in. May of last
year was made C.O. of a squadron
at Howard Field.
Promotion to the rank of ma-
jor came last August 29, and the
Zins- family back in Cincinnati
welcomed the news. His father,
Mathew Zins, Sr., gathered with
the rest of the family four
brothers and two sisters-to sa-
lute their favorite soldier.
