poor babies with all sorts of frills
and furbelows "because they look
What is prettier than the soft,
dimpled flesh of a baby? Could

STEEL-CLAD. SQUADRONS DROP LIQUID DEATH
Vague, ghost-like forms, dart
ing across the sky at ISO miles an
hour; bombs and liquid fire scat
tering death and destruction;
cities razed, nations terrorized,
immense armies helpless such is
the picture of the next'war paint

replaced cumbersome, flmsy craft.
Today 125 miles an. hour is the

can do this, so the'tiiplane is dis
carded, pracCically, by the war de
partments of Europe, although
still favored here.
One French monoplane has
been taken to the field in a motor
van, unpacked, assembled and
taken to the air in 14 minutes.
Another folds its . wings like a
beetle, which it resembles.
iBomb-dropping has reanhed the
