FRAKCE ORGANIZES
AERIAL SQUADRON
Overhead Service Drilled With

Correspondence of the Associated Press.)
Paris, Oct. 27.- Now that France
has developed an aerial force with
battleDlanes. . cruiser-nlanes. . scouts
aid lesser aircraft, which the officers
refer to as torpedo-planes, it has
been necessary to organize this over
head service with the same exactness
of details that armies and fleets are
organized, with tactics and manoeu-
, v'res of "advance and retreat-, attack
ajgjd defense- Unlike an army or fleet,
which can move only in one direc
tion parallel with the surface of the
earth or water, a fleet of air warships
can move in any direction, upward,
downward, forward or backward and
at any oblique.
All of these tactics of the air are
now being worked out with pre
cision. Already the official reports
rller almost daily to the. manoeu
vres of an "esquadrille," which is
the French term for a squadron of
air-fighters, and soon there will be

these squadrons, as the tactics pro

9 lorries, 9 trailers, 9 portable can
vas aero-sheds, 3 autos.
There is one lorrle and trailer and
one shed, for each of the fighting
craft, soas to transport it rapidly to
any point, and house it until need
ed. The autos are for the com
manding officers, and to follow up
the flyers when possible. Gasolene,
tools, supplies, etc., are carried on
the lorries.
The "esquadrille" thus made up,
is commanded by a commissioned of
ficer of the army, who acts as pilot
at aero-parks scattered all over
France, the names of these places
being withheld from mention. Here
they are gathered in hundreds and
given, their final tests before going
to the fighting line.
Parka Back Of Lines.
But it is on the fighting line that
the real manoeuvers begin. The aero
parks for actual service are a short
distance in rear of the fighting forces,
each park at the front being made up
of four "esquadrilles." So that, as
each "esquadrilles" has nine aeros,
including battleplanes, cruiserplanes,
and scoutplanes. In turn, these parks
back of the line are connected, so that
these equipment of 26 machines in
each can be rapidly brought together
for a concerted attack or defense.
As these parks stretch from end to
end of the long battle-line their num
ber and aggregate of aircraft must
be very large. As stated, the con
centrations of 6 5 fighting craft have
already been carried out, and much
larger concentrations are in view. .
Strange Devices TTsed.
The fighting tactics have developed
a number of interesting phases. It
is a strange fact that one of the most
useful devices has resulted from the
capture of an enemy aero. This
brought to light a fine instrument of
precision, made by a well-known opti
cal firm of Berlin. The instrument

ARE ALWAYS BEST
GREEN LABEL BEER
(BREWERY BOTTLING)
This Beer is brewed from specially selected
extra pale Northwestern barley-malt, the choicest
imported Bohemian hops and the finest brewers'
rice, imported from India.
It is guaranteed to be brewed only from the
above-mentioned materials, and to be at all times
at least four months old.
It is of a pale color, and is so bottled as to
present a very attractive appearance. It possesses
an exceptionally delicious and distinctive flavor.
YELLOW LABEL BEER
This beer, made from the same high-grade
materials as "Harvard Green Label," Is sold only
in cases, and is designed for local or present use
rather than for export.
It is pale in color, of full body, fine hop flavor
and delightful sparkle. It is carefully brewed and
well aged and is easily the leader among all present-use
case beers, as Is "Harvard Green Label"
among exports. It is known as "Yellow Label."
HALF STOCK ALE

This ale Is pale ln color, full-mouthed In taste,
and hoppy in flavor. u
It possesses all the best characteristics of the
carbonated ales now growing jo rapidly in public
favor.
It has no sediment ln the bottle like stock ale,
requires no settling but pours clear and sparkling.
'
Hold a glass of Harvard Ale up to the',llKht
You can then see what a brilliant, luminous al '
it is as bright as a new dollar and as clear as
a crystal.
This ale is brewed from the finest materials
and every precaution is taken to insure its Mgn
quality and healthfulness.
It has the flavor richness and body that are"
the distinguishing characteristics of a high-grade
ale.
In addition thereto it has a brilliancy that Is
distinctively Its own. It is a notable achievement
in the art of brewing.
Besides being a delicious beverage we espe
cially recommend Harvard Sparkling Pale Ale on
account of its health-giving properties as a body
builder for invalids and convalescents and for
those in active training.
