pondence (Correspondence of the Associated Press)
The anti-aircraft barrage is today the
most dreaded enemy weapon which
the airman has to face in his flights
ever the lines. In the midst of a se&
of bursting shells, the airplane bobs
up. and down like a ship' in a violent
storm.. The concussions which the
shells make in bursting produce a
swift succession of air pockets and air
bumps, and it is absolutely impossible
to keep a machine steady through
them. Meanwhile there is the strain
of knowing always that the next in
stant one of the thousands of flying
shell splinters may reach a vital spot
in either machine or pilot.
Yet it is not possible to avoid flying
through a barrage at times. The lat latest
est latest type of anti-aircraft guns can
place a shell as high as 23,000 feet,
and it is not practical to turn about
and try to climb over the barrage. Ii
takes a very highly specialized scout
machine to climb 23,000 feet, and the
heavier machines cannot achieve that
altitude under any circumstances.
The longer the airman hes'tates to
run the barrage, the longer he is ex exposed
posed exposed to the fire. Anti-aircraft gun gunnery
nery gunnery at the front has now reached a
point where the rangs is calculated to
a nicety, almost instantaneously b
processes of triangulation and, there
fore, the flyer who hesitates is lost.
The only thing he can do is to take
his chance, just as a, ship at sea takes
a storm and accepts its chances of
weathering the gale.
Next to the barrage, the most fear feared
ed feared of the ground ; defenses is the
"cluster." This is a group of six anti antiaircraft
aircraft antiaircraft shells, sent up together, and
placed just ahead of the machine,
with one shell aimed to burst at the
top of the fuselage, two on each side
of it, two on each side just ahead, and
one farther and directly ahead.
The side-slip is the favorite protec protection
tion protection against these "clusters." The
anti-aircraft gunners get their range
nowadays so accurately that the
slightest move out of range is fairly
certain to get the machine out of
danger's way unless the gunners
have anticipated this move, as they
sometimes do, by placing another
cluster at the most likely spot for an
expected side-slip.
The side-slip is produced by tipping
the plane down slightly, and while
flying ahead., slithering over sideways
and down, thus changing the range
without seeming to do so, for the
gunner looking up sees as much of the
machine as before and is justified in
estimating its height to be the same.
In reality the machine is a little to
one side and several feet lower as the
result of his skillful side-sliD.
Below a height of 5.000 feet anti antiaircraft
aircraft antiaircraft guns cannot be used to ad advantage,
vantage, advantage, but machine guns and rifles
provide equally dangerous enemies. A
machine gun playing a stream of 500
bullets a minute is no mean foe, even
though the bullets are not explosive.

"I myself am a walking example of
our people's attitude," he says. "I am
a social democrat and therefore, in

"Before the war I was one of the
many Alsace-Lorraine politicians who
were content to limit our national

boundaries of the German empire.

From this is must not be gathered
that we had forgotten that in 1871

we were willing to limit our demands
for the sake of peace, and that was
all. We knew that we could be re reunited

war and we wished to avoid that."
He further explains the reason why
the people of Alsace-Lorraine do nov
wish to and cannot become Germans.
"Our national culture is French, not

however, is untrue, or only partly

The greatest reason why we have
no confidence in Billy Sunday is that
he commercializes religion.' He doesnt
go where the spirit calls him, as the
apostles : of old ,were said to have
idone -he books : his dates in advance,
like a gran d opera singer or a prize
fighter, only he demands more. It
would be a pretty safe bet that few
of Billy Sunday's converts stick. Peo People
ple People who "get religion" under such 'in 'influence,
fluence, 'influence, ; generally lose it soon after
the influence is withdrawn.
Retail merchants are now-trying to
get rid of an -evil they? have saddled
on themselves. For the 'last 'twenty 'twenty-five
five 'twenty-five years they have spoiled their
customers by free delivery of 'goods
in the most disproportionately small
amounts. Each store tried to gain
custom by the quick delivery of any
amount of goods, from a nickel's
worth up. Consequently, the average
American housekeeper, instead of or ordering
dering ordering for a week, or even a -day, at
a time, would go to? the phone and
order oods "sent up" two br three
times a Iay. This habit Ms one the

having uphill work.
The American censorship is about
the most stupid thing ever inflicted on
this country. It 1 is -downright" dam dam-phooKshness

among the American people to know

Civilians "know very little about
army customs, and when they inter interfere
fere interfere with them they generally make a
muddle of it. Representative Cary of
Wisconsin has introduced into Con Congress
gress Congress a bill forbidding any officer in
the army from employing a private

to play politics, and he is possibly

Whitlock Opposed Belgian Idea.
Tn order' to understand fully the
situation, It Is necessary to go back to
the autumn of 1914. At the time we
were organizing the relief work, the
Comlte National the Belgian relief or organization

commission for relief In Belgium
proposed an arrangement by which
the Belgian government should pay
to' its own employees left in Belgium,
and other unemployed men besides,
the wages they had been accustomed
to receive. The Belgians wished to
do this both for humanitarian and pa patriotic
triotic patriotic purposes; they wished to pro provide
vide provide the unemployed with the means
of livelihood, and, at the same time,
to prevent their working for the Ger Germans.

any way with this plan, and told the
Belgian committee that it had many
possibilities of danger; that not only
would it place a premium on Idleness,
but that It would ultimately exasper exasperate

was adopted, and has been continued
in practice, and on the rolls of the
Comite National have been borne the
names of hundreds of thousands
some 700,000, I believe of idle men
receiving this dole, distributed through
the communes.
"The presence of these unemployed,
however, was a constant temptation
to German cupidity. Many times they
sought to obtain the lists of the cho cho-meurs,

he could ship canned grasshoppers in

he could, and soon all the small boys

from that time on.
To make a long story short, Mulloy
now has a large factory devoted to the

He has perfected several ways by

t Took Adolph Weiman Seven Months
to Make Perfect Designs for New
Dimes and Halves.
Smoothing out the wrinkles in Miss
Liberty's dress, and keeping the die die-makers
makers die-makers from cutting off the tips of her
fingers, took seven months of the
hardest kind of work on the part of
Adolph A. Weiman, who designed the
dimes and half-dollars, which, if you
are fortunate, you are now jingling in
your pockets.
Sitting in his studio, the artist who
designed these coins for Uncle Sam,
told how the work was done.
"The first task is to make a detailed
sketch of the design. From this sketch
is made a finished model from model modeling
ing modeling wax. Some men work with small
models; some with large.
"The models I made for the coins
were 14 or 15 inches in diameter.
"When this model Is completed it Is
necessary to make a reduced model
from it by means of a mechanical de device
vice device by which one needle traces the
large model and another, connected
with it, but moving on a reduced area,
reproduces the originaL This reduced
model was, in this case, five times the
size of the coin. From this smaller
model a bronze alloy cast is made.
"This cast is used by the mint Iden Identically

ter "master die' although It Is not a die: at
all, but simply a relief model.
"The steel of which It is made Is
then tempered and made very hard;
is placed in a 'chuck and a piece of
soft steel Is forced down upon It with
terrific pressure. This produces the
final die, which in turn Is hardened,
and from it the coins are struck.
"These dies will strike from 100 to
120 coins before being defaced. It Is
necessary, therefore, continually to
take new dies from the "master die' to
keep up the coinage.

and ancient plays. My face was almost
