After his graduation from
military academies and cavalry
schools In Athens, Belgium and
Italy, he fought In the Balkan
war of 1912 and 1913, rising from
a lieutenancy to a captaincy. In
the World war, he fought against
Bulgaria and Germany and, In
the campaign of 1929, had a staff
assignment In Asia Minor. He
was made minister of war In
1933 and chief of staff and chair
man of the supreme war coun
cil In 1939.
If he uses ammunition at careful

supremely effective fighter against
all comers. Most characteristic is
his reserve, his calm precision in
action and his capacity for swift de
cision. Also characteristic is his
long aloofness from intrigue and
politics, during changing regimes.
He has opposed and bested the

Mr. Burcham, test pilot for

ditioned himself for his hazard
ous career by nailing a chair up
side down on the beam of his
kitchen, and spending a lot of
his time sitting head downward
as he coached arteries, nerves
and vision for a topsy-turvy life.
That was in 1933 when he decid
ed to make a try for the upside

His record flight of 4 hours, 5 min
utes and 22 seconds was just like
an afternoon of pleasant lounging in
the old kitchen chair. He had been

orientation on an also topsy-turvy
world. He is thirty-seven.
