One of the most exciting! tasks to which airmen are assigned is what is known us "desultory bomb ing" over one snot for an hour or more. The object is to distract the attention of the 'anti-aircraft defend ers of a given district, and a machine carrying a dozen or more bombs is employed for the work. At first the airmen, a pilot find an observer approach thrir target cau tiously. With engines throttled down the. craft glides ri"arer and nearer. Below all is unlet. No Herman search lights are sweeping the sky. When the attackers are almost over their objective a rocket rises toward them and bursts Into a cluster of red stars. The machine has been discovered. At once si:; or seven searchlights throw their beams aloft. The pilot looks at his watch; it is time to begin his desultory bombing. He flies steadily on. although tt bar rage of bursting shells lies now In front or him. The observer looks through the wires of his bomh sight to the ground below. At the proper instant he thrusts his lever forward and releases two bombs. A few sec onds later he sees the flash of their explosions and above the crackling barrage be can hear two dull roars. He signals to the pilot and the ma chine turns and sweeps away from the fiery ring of shells and search lights. A few miles away the airplane flies to and fro at ton speed. The puzzled searchlights vainly feel the sky in all directions and then, one by one, are switched off. Then the pilot ipiiekly moves again oward the target. Another bomb is dropped. As H explodes the search lights reappear and the barrage Is renewed while through the thickly grouped shell bursts are threaded the chains of green flaming globes, so much used by the Germans. Again the machine flies away and this time to bewilder still more the soldiers below, the observer fires a white Verey light which slowly drifts neiow and fanes our. All the search lights follow it until It dies. Hepeateilly the airmen return to the attack. Bombs are dropped at In tervals until the end of the hour. when the machine departs, flickering fires and clouds of smoke telling of the havoc wrought by the bombs. Censor r -vn j.,$ - ' EL. M.

The house ways and means committee, in-tentatively Hareeiiig today upon a graduat ed tax on war excess profits estimated by the treasury to yield only $1,699, OOO.ono revenue, found that either all its plans so far would have to be re adjusted in orden to produce the B,non. oon.iioo sought from excess profits and incomes or to resort to some new tax proposition. As now planned the revenue from these two sources would fall $1. 6ii0, 000, Olio short. The committee tentatively agreed to a specific exemption of $2,000 plus 10 per cent on - invested capital, in stead of $11,000 plus 7 to 9 per ct. exempted from excess profits lax un der the present law. Various taxing plans also were discussed, with lhe committee favoring 30 per cent on all net income in excess of the exemption or ni per cent and not in excess of 20 per cent excess profits, 50 per cent on net income in excess of 20 per cent anit not in excess of 25 per cent, and 80 per cent on net income in excess of 25 per cent. ' IS NUkiMG SHELLS TO HURL AT FOE Female Labor Is Extensively Employed in Munition Fac tories; Average Pay Equiva lent to $10 Week, (V MORNINO JOURNAL .RKCIAL LKAB.O WIR.I Manchester, England, July 25. The women of Kngland aro making the shells with which the British army is beating back the enemy, and are do ing the work at an average pay equiv alent to S10 a -week.- The managing' director of a big naval construction works here Is un able to employ domestic servants be cause all the women formerly em ployed as servants have gone to work in shell factories. When the factory men were called to the colors, women quietly stepped into their places. The vast majority of the women hnd neither skill nor training in' munitions work, but the factory engineers by installing what is known as sinsle process machines made it possible for the women to do the complicated work that previously only skilled men had been able to ac complish. In a week or ton days ft woman learns how to operate a single process machine. She does her work effi ciently and faithfully. Recently in one factory the women made 31,000 4.5-inch shecls In, eighteen weeks and not a flaw could bo found in any shell. Many of the women workers before the war were operatives in plants for textile manufacture, the chief indus try in' this region. In peace time their wages averaged about the equiv alent of $5 a week. Now the average is well over $10 and. in exceptional cases, $15 and more. In some factories women work three shifts of eight hours each, ro tating each week. Their employers say that they arc not affected by the strain of night work. A large num ber of the women are doing tho hard er t kind of manual work. Piece work is the system used in most of the shell factories, and the managers say that the introduction of piece work increased the output to an amazing degree. "Women," one of the managers continued, "are more competitive than men workers. Men will work up to a certain point and stop, either because they are Indifferent and1 easily satisfied with the amount of their earnings or hecause their mates would protest. On the other hand, women do not seem to care what their mates think or say. Each Is for her self." He pointed to a machine where a girl was working at a great rate of speed. "That'young woman," he went on, "doubtless wants a new ribbon for her hair, and she is going to make the shop pay for it." Tim minimum wage naid to women In shell factories where the piece work system is in effect is about $7. JO a week, but unless a girl proves herself capable of making at least $9 a week she is not regarded as a good worker. It is not uncommon for a particularly intelligent ar.d energetic woman to draw each week from $17 to $20, REDUCTION IN SUGAR RATION TO BE MADE IN U. S.
