The fact thnt tho four machines, nbscnt rdnco yesterday, have not returned to their stations wis announced hy tho official press liurea'j here to-day. The Dully Mali draw nttentlon to German announcements that ten llrltlsh aeroplanes have been downed nnd eight airmen killed on tho weatern front lu tho past month, Jind asks what the rea son Is. In this connection It speculated on whether tho new battle plane, known as the Fokker, with a reputed speed of 112 miles nn hour and tho ability to climb 8,000 feet In ton minutes. Is estab lishing Its superiority. It remarks further on tho possibility of daytime aeroplane raids on Knglnnd, such n the French and llrltlsh' have Instituted at times, against Germnny. and wonders whether the Government Is pre pared for such a contingency. Gunfire, It contends. Is practically llselee. the only method of combating an aeroplane raid of the kind being with swifter and more heavily nnned planes than the enemy's. Attncks by both sides are reported to-day from the region of I.o Mesiill In Champagne, which has been the secene of almost continual fighting for the last week. , Tho Germans attempted a surprlso at tack with grenades northeast of tho llutte du Mesiill and another in thu dis trict of the Mnlsons de Champagne, tioth of which were checked by the French lire curtain.
