NO "SMOKE OF BATTLE" IN MODERN WARFARE One of the marked features of the European conflict that distinguishes it from the wars of the past is the absence of smoke on the firing lines. Owing to the use of smokeless powder, no smoke is made when a rifle is dis charged, while the heaviest artillery throws off nothing more than a thin mist that is invisible a hundred yards away and disappears within a few sec onds after the gun Is flred. Only when shrapnel or a shell explodes in the enemy's lines is there anything visible in the way of smoke, the whole pur pose being to conceal the position of the guns throwing the projectiles while making the points where projectiles explode clearly visible. The expres sion, "the smoke of battle," so faith fully descriptive of the wars of the past, has little meaning when applied i to a modern war.—From the August [Popular Mechanics Magazine.
