MM E mm AERO OBSERVERS "Shooting" the enemy with a camera Is Just as essential a. part of modern warfare as shooting him with a rifla. War Department records disclose. Army photographers 3,000 of them, one-half of them overseas are play ing a most important part in Amer ica's war game. Where formerly fccouts and spies supplied the only Information as to what lay behind the enemy's lines, today the airplane, with its photographic apparatus and its observation instruments, is the eye ot me army. Army photographers never take pictures themselves, except when they are on special missions. The cameras attached to the airplane do Uie "shooting." Once started by the aviator wnen he Is "up" they auto matlcally take their own pictures. Interpret rietnres. Tho photographers themselves work In the dark room, or with pen and ink in the map room, interpret ing tho pictures. Trees, buildings, hollows, gulleys. waterways, wnerever taken, show sharply and distinctly. In other words, tho earth and what is on it. wnen taken rrom an airplane direct ly overhead, does not appear on th dim as a flat, even surface, but throws sharply into relief every con tour wnetner roiiage. waterways, de pressions, elevations, or structures of any kind. This effect is produced, of course. through shadow, photographs being tauen either in Uie morning or af ternoon, when the sun is on one side or the other of the noon hour. Without the shadow, the water tank, for instance, would, on the man. show exactly the same as a silo, a circular spot. With the shadow, however, the steel supporting columns underneath the tank show sufficiently to differ entiate it from the solid cylinder of the silo. Ileveal Details.
