Moat successful machine riui
now used in Europe is the Lewis.
Like the two other leading ma
chine guns, the Hotchklss and the
Maxim, It was invented in the
United States. And—also like
the llotchkis. and the Maxim—it
wa. promptly rejected BY the
Gihin That Won't Work.
Aside from several hundred of
an older type, tlie United States
army now has H7 7 llenet-Mercier
machine guns to show for an ex
penditure of Un ci' quarters of a!
million dollars: And those guns]
won't work. They jammed at
Columbus. They have Jammed
time and time again.
In a test at Sparta, Wis., the
commanding officer reported that
hi. alx machine gun. were all out
of commission In five minutes,
and tbe same number of riflemen
could have done better execution
In that period!
The invention of the machine
gun 1. exclusively an American
achievement, yet we are the only
first class nation on the globe that
ha. no workable machine guns!

LIEUT COL ISAAC LCWL?
For the paat three year. $150,
--000 to 9200,000 has been appro
priated by congreas for the pur
chase of machine guvs, but our
chief of ordnance. Brig. Gen. Wil
liam Crpzier, has bought not a
single machine gun during that
period, on the ground that no sat
isfactory type had been found.
AND ALL THE WHILE. THE
WORLD'S GREATEST MACHINE
GUN WAB AT OUR DISPOSAL!
It was In 1911 that Col. Isaac
N. Lewi, of the coast artillery
first offered hi. air-cooled gun to
the United State*.
The following year Capt. Chas.
DeForest Chandler, one of our
earliest army blrdmen, took a
Lewi, machine gun—he had never
fired one before that day—up In
an aeroplane from College Park,
Md . and from an elevation of 600
feet, hit hi. target wllh EVERY
ONE of the 4 7 shots in the maga

gun bad ever been fired from an
Scientists all over the country
hailed the exploit as epoch-mak
It was taken for granted that
the United States would adopt the

Reject (inn Hat.
But the gun was not even offi
cially tested until September,
ill l'l, when a board at Springfield,
Mass., tested It, Gen. Crozier him
self firing the gun.
The extractor broke six times.
It was evidently a flaw in the ma
terial, and In no wise a fault In
the design. Col. Lewis, a poor
man, had already raised f 10.000
for the development of his gun.
He had not been able to afford
the highest grade of steel.
But Gen. Crozier and his asso
ciates took the attitude that the
gun had failed on test. THEY
Instead of trying to perfect the
gun—theoretically this should
have been their duty—they sim
ply allowed the matter to drop.
