General Davis Says U.S., Nationalist Air Groups 'Are Clicking'

TAIPEI, Formosa (AP) -- An official newspaper here quoted Brig. Gen. Benjamin O. Davis Jr. as saying the American and Chinese Nationalist air forces would give the Chinese Communists a bloody nose if they dared to invade Formosa.

The China Daily News said the commander of the U.S. Air task force in Formosa made this assertion in an exclusive interview.

It quoted Davis as saying his task force, the Nationalist air force and the U.S. 7th Fleet were "clicking like a ball team."
