Air Force Captain
LONDON (AFPS) A U.S. air
force captain will soon be living
the life of an English lord.
Capt. Robert L. Foster was hunt
ing a home for his family of nine
when he happened to wander on
to the estate of Lord Lucan Labor
Party whip in the House of Lords.
"I thought well they might be.
able to rent me some of it" the1
AF officer said. "A butler opened
the door. I thought at first he was

the guy who owned the place but
he wasn't." '.- •
Lord Lucan was not home but
the captain left his name. When
the English peer was informed
of Capt. Foster's problem he in
vited him to lunch at the House
of Lords dining room and offered
to rent the whole 17-room manor
house. The astounded AF officer
took an 18-month lease at an
"amazingly reasonable" rental.

in studies like the faces of medics

as well as abstracts composed of
shadows and silhouettes and the
wide open vistas of nature.
The camera is an excellent war
correspondent. No other medi
um of communication has so ef
fectively shown the civilian what
combat is like.
The possibilities of the camera
in war reporting were recognized
early. The civil War was the first
Amercian war to be. covered by
photographers. The Post Library
has a book edited by Roy Mere
dith entitled Mr. Lincoln's Cam
era Man Mathew B. Brady. It
contains a photographic record of
the civil war made by the lead
ing photographed of his times. He
was assigned on his own. insist-
ance as official photographer of
the union army and though his
photographs were made under the
most difficult .of circumstances and
with inadequate equipment he has
given today's" reader a chance to
feel a sense of knowing what war
was like in the 1860's.
