While an nrmy of 3,500,000 men has been raised, tho Investigating commit tee declares that tho aircraft situation presents the following aspects: First Six hundicd find one Do Haviland foura embarked for franco up to August 1. Of these, sixty seven had reached the front by July 1. On August 7 a squadron of eight een ,De Haviland fours flew over tho German lines. No details of Its per formance have been leeched.

Tho standard "J" train ing machine equipped with Hall Scott engines was put Into quantity production, and, after more than 1200 had been manufactured at a cost of $6,000,000. was condemned as dangerous and placed in sioiage. Seventh Three thousand Spad fighting planes weio ordered In Sep tember and the order was cancpled October 8, for the reason that the single-seat fighter was regarded as obsolete. Nevertheless, on April 23, this year, 1000 single-seat lighters known as the S K 5 tho English equivalent of tho Frtnch Spad were -dercd. In addition, the Gov ernment Is now using on the battle front every Spad It cap secure from the French, but has got only 418. Eighth When the Spad and Bris tol contracts weie canceled "wo were left without either a single or two seat filer." except tho De Haviland, four, originally designed as a two seat fighter, but equipped by the United States for reconnaissance and bombing. Ninth. Eighty-five hundred De Havilands ordered, but when 1000 had been dellveied numerous mis takes developed, when work was stsopped until the defects could He remedied. Tenth. Although InOctober, 1917. the United States had facilities for producing Capronl bombing planes, only one experimental machine had been produced to date. By this time the machines should havo be?n In quantity production, tho committee says. , Eleventh. Plans for the Handley page bombing machine were avail able In the summer of 1917, but con tracts for parts were not made until February. 1918.
