  • Description

    THE WORLD'S CHAMPION MILITARY PARACHUTIST -- HE'S A YOUNG FRENCH NON-COMMISSIONED OFFICER, ADJUDANT PIERRE ARASSUS. HE TOOK ALL THREE TITLES AT THE WORLD'S FIRST MILITARY PARACHUTING CHAMPIONSHIPS WHICH ENDED AT PAU, IN SOUTH-WEST FRANCE, YESTERDAY (MONDAY).

    IT WAS A TRIUMPH FOR FRANCE ALL ROUND, FOR NOT ONLY DID THEY TAKE MOST OF THE MAJOR PLACINGS, BUT SCORED A RUNAWAY VICTORY IN THE OVERALL TEAM CLASSIFICATION FROM THE UNITED STATES AND AUSTRIA, WITH SPAIN, BRITAIN AND ITALY BEHIND THEM.

    WHICH, AS ONE FRENCH CORRESPONDENT SAID, JUST GOES TO SHOW THAT FRANCE NOT ONLY PRODUCES THE BEST PARACHUTISTS, BUT THE BEST EQUIPMENT, TOO.

    ARASSUS MADE HIS CLEAN SWEEP BY TAKING THE FINAL EVENT -- THE ONE FOR JUMPING STYLE. HE WON COMFORTABLY FROM TWO OTHER FRENCHMEN OF THE SAME RANK.
