      Well, Florida IS not! Sebring, Fla., Nov. 8 (&). Major Clarence L. Thacker of Kissimmee, Fla., told a Florida girl he would name a Flying Fortress for her, the Hendricks Field public relations office said. Then, the story goes, she saw an Associated Press wirephoto from England showing the major standing by his plane. The name on it: ”Bat Out of Hell.”
