The Air Duel"-?one ot the pain country. - V- ? 1IHII FlIER If Not Sure Whether He Put His Man Chit or Not. WAS RATHERJOLD JCB And That Had Considerable to Do With the Way It j IlndecL By LIEUTENANT GRANVILLE A. POLLOCK. American Aviator in the Lafayette Flying Corps of the French Foreign Legion. I (Copyright. 1SI1S, by the Newspaper, Enterprise Association.) i Burins the height of the titanic i j struggle for the Chemin des Dames ] i I had my first single-handed duel with } a Boche flyer. j I had been transferred to Squadron | 65, after the firgt army was wtihdrawn from Flanders. I was return-1 ins from a patrol. Everybody was I hungrily looking forward to dejeuner ?I know I was?when we spotted a single Cerman machine just inside our lines. It seemed a crime to attack the Boche with such overwhelming cclds in our favor, but war is war, and it was our duty to surround and anni-1 kilate liim. Before concentrating on the Job II took the usual precautionary survey i above, below, and in front, in order to be sure that no other enemy planes, were in sight, ready to surprise me at work. ** If I had not .this tale most likely would not have been written. I was up 4000 meters. Under my tail, at the 3200 meter level. I saw two biplanes with the tell-tale black maltese crosses on their wings. So there were two Jobs to be done. I left the lone boche to the rest of the patrol. "Me for one of these other guys," I said to myself. It was bitterly cold. As I vol-! planed down, the icy blast chiiiea my Hispana-Suizza motor. The gauge was steadily creeping down to the danyer point. Keeping one eye dodging between the motor temperature indicator and the air pressure gauge of the essence tank, I continued on my dizzy dive, letting "two or three"; out of my Vickcrs gun through the] propeller, en route, to be sure it was all right. I foolishly put my head over the sido of the nacelle for a second, and peered below to \>& sure just where I was?and nearly had my head blown off. Down I "picqued"?almost vertically?at 200 miles an hour, and down my motor temperature went too. Six' hundred yards from the nearest boche and it had dropped to 35 degrees centi J" ?e> trt "b>a fV? O ^ I tlU C. JC lit* ^'5 vy wu -II- 1 - -W "dead line." Below that the motor might stall when I threw on the juice again, and then me tor the Karlsruhe concentration camp and paper pants! There was nothing else to do but flatten out my "cuckoo," put on full motor and let her warm up a bit This I did, and then returned to the attack. But the boches had seen my predicament' and had shoved off for their own lines. The maneuver brought both equidistant from me. Then I saw a French Spad making for the one nearest our lines. It was 1 piloted, I later learned, by Mv'or Luf f oerrv 01 me ***c, | only American "ace" now alive. I -c. lings by Lieutenant Henri Farre, Frea c. \ 5fUUOR??* is \ ^ ( -tESaweue. WV*?GER-y P OUS? VM ?HUH ' j I J J on the patrol of as adjoining sector. Sometimes, of course, we cannot resist the temptation to do' a little trespassing if the prospects of a successful encounter look too inviting to resist. In such a case, if we bring a boche 'down the fellows of the other squadron have to blow us to a champagne supper the next time we are -- enmo j-.-vrtr litfla rgndez vous is the rear. At these parties we could always trust Le Boucher, our pet humorist, to keep things lively. Poor de Boucher, he's now "missing" ?a prisoner, I hope, but I'm afraid not. Well, tn "continue. Foiled of one boche. I for his friend. I followed h.. . . : some miles, got behind and above, his stall, and let fly with a whole "belt." He went down in the steepest picque I have ever seen. My motor was again shivering around 30 degrees, and as I was two miles from home. I climbed back to the right air level, rejoined the patfol, and returned to camp. I didn't have time to follow the boche's coarse to the ground to see whether he smashed np or not. 1 j know he didn't go down in flames. I I reported a boche "shot down," but | as the incident was never confirmed by any observation posts or balloons, ! the rules of the game made it impos| sible ofr me to claim credit. But? Well, my time would come! 11Y OF ceo? UNDER fOOD RULES ' Clyde Morris Will See That Retailers Keep in the Right Track.
