Vol. II No. 12
Cover: The picture on the front cover is another of those combined efforts of The STAR’s indefatigable photographers Charles Cignatta and Fred Parker. Both were in the camera ship while the Mars was making its famous 32 hour test flight recently, both madly snapping picture in black and white and in kodachrome. Which one took the picture is unknown. The drawing on the back cover was made by John T. Gorsuch, Art Department, who did the June, 1943 cover in color and whose work has frequently appeared on the pages of The STAR. ……. Articles Inside: … Began at Beginning ( Edwin L. Zivi ) …..
