IMPORTANT PLACE IN WAR Hundreds of Snapshots Taken From Air Are Cunningly Fitted Togeth er to Make Complete Photograph of Any Given Section. London. To call the British airmen the eyes of the army Is a common metaphor. Even at the beginning of the war they did much observation for the artillery besides playing the lead ing part In general reconnaissance. But their present rvalue in all matters of observation greatly exceeds anything that was expected at the beginning. Without v aircraft In important num bers, and without aircraft, whatever their numbers, which can hold their own against the enemy, an army Is practically blind; and without their enmcras airmen would not be the all seeing eyes that they are. For, as the airman is the eye of the laud forces, so the enmera is the eye of the airman. It at least provides" that part of his vision which Is most penetrut lng and accurate, A series of photographs from the air Is a wonderful piece of work. Hundreds of snapshots go to make It, aud these are so cunningly fitted to gether that a complete photograph is obtained. So the work goes on, sec tion by section, and by degrees Is procured a picture, which cannot He. of the whole of the enemy's defenses from flank to flank of his lines. As his dispositions are constantly chang ing, or at least being elaborated In Important respects, there is no . rest for the aerial photographers and no end to their work. Every day on which there is a rea sonable visibility until the end of the war they must fly Into the face of danger to discover new secrets with their cameras. The danger Is of a particularly unpleasant kind, because throughout the operation they nre within effective range of Archibald the antiaircraft gun which is the fly ing miin's most Inveterate if not Ills most deadly enemy. To take n series of photographs of an enemy position needs a special coolness and nerve. A Trip With the "Eye." This Is n typical quiet morning in a dny of the photographers of the nlr. A machine Is run out'from the sheds, and pilot and observer mount to their places. It Is not a fast airplane, as speed is now counted, but each man Is armed with a machine gun, and attack from the air will be met with stout and ! efficient resistance. Attack from I he ground cunnot be answered. It can only be evaded by maneuver. Through a hole in the fuselage or body of the machine a enmera points earthward, capable of reproducing a considerable uri-a on each plate ex posed. The device by which the snap shots are taken Is as simple as It is ingenious, and It Is almost "fool proof." In half an hour or so the machine has crossed the lines nt a .height of little more than 4,000 feet. Far above nre small, fast scouts, ready to attack any aerial enemy that may attempt to Interfere with the work below. From tho first, antiaircraft guns are uncom fortably attentive, but the bursts can at this stage be defeated by climbing, diving or swerving movements. It is when the actual objective of photographic attack has been reached that the real difficulties and dangers come. Further dodging and diving nre no longer practicable, since an accurate pictorial record can only be obtained by steady flying. The airplane must be as level as possible when a snap shot Is taken. Yet the enemy knows the purpose of the Invader and chooses tills moment to make his utmost effort to destroy him. The Archl-bursts are thicker than ever. The range has been nicely judged; the bursts are wen aimed. Under Difficulties. In the midst of them the two must do their work as 'steadily and quietly as if the air were still.

Shells burst ctoseljr round them, on this side and that, beneath and above. At moments the pilot is forced to swerve, but he must quickly get level and . resume bis ordered course. ' Meanwhile the observer studies In tently the pitted earth below, which would appear to the uninitiated as In definite ns a huge plowed field.' But his practiced eye picks out its essen tial features, and, regardless of the shells, he presses his lever at carefully timed Intervals. At Inst the deed 'Is done Just as a shell bursts close under their tail nnd tosses them upward as a wave might lift a cork. Fortunately the damage is slight. .."Finished?" asks the pilot through his telephone. . "Finished," says the observer. And they swing for home with an inevitable sense of relief. 'It Is 'nil in the day's work a very ordinary jolt. But even the airman's most ordinary Job is out of the ..com mon as. a risky experience. As for the knowledge obtained, it mny prove of vital Importance. The camera Is more than nn eye; it Is a weapon. And the hand that controls It must be as pur poseful and steady ns if it held a riflo.

Guynemcrs and Lnfberys. The airdrome Is set In one of those beautiful spots that one cnlls to mind from classic pictures of English land scapes. It is early In June nnd the great level field that stretches awny in front of the hangars Is like a rich green carpet. Beyond there Is n wood land, nnd in the" distnnce Is n range of low hills whose smooth contour recalls to Western Americans the foot hills of California. It Is a peaceful place nnd very quiet except for the droning of airplanes. At least a dozen. are In the nlr and others nre prepnrlng for flight' Into one of these latter a young Keritucklan has Just climbed. For the first time he is going up alone. Passes All First Tests. - For weeks the British Instructor has been with him constantly nnd he tins passed successfully the major tests. Ho con fly straight, the Instructor sit ting beside him has mnde sure, nnd he can work the controls without fear or "nerves." , He knows how to stall, to glide and to climb, and he has learned a good deal, too, about the Important art of landing. On one memorable occasion the In structor has shouted to him above the roaring of the engine: "Shnll we loop?" and they did. But hitherto, of course, the instructor has been the real pUdt, explaining mnneuvers, en couraging the young" man to secure an 'accurate touch, and to become, ns he must If he Is to be successful, so per fect a master of the machine thnt he can make it fly of itself. The fact that it Is his first flight Is known at the airdrome and mnny eves are watching td see hlra "take off." Gives Final Instructions. With n tremendous' sputtering the engine starts. ' The instructor, stand ing on the step of the fuselage, holds to his cap against the hurricane raised by the propellers nnd shouts his final directions. He points to the instru ments, shows what the engine revolu tions should be, feels the controls, nnd blda the new "soloist" good cheer. LIEUT.

What the fledgling flyer's feelings nre only those who have flown alone know. He is dropping the pilot nnd embarking on the great adventure. On a first flight nlone the 'pupil's performance Is cnrefully watched for any faults. Usually he Is given a defi nite piece of maneuvering to carry out A pupil Is never sent into the nlr merely to fly about for a fixed time. Afterwards he will have more "dual" with his Instructor nnd much of the old teachings will be repented and emphasized. At this point perhaps the real understanding between Instruct or nnd pupil becomes manifest. Un derstanding and sympathy are impor tant factors in nerlnl Instruction.
