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
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

"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

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

pet humorist, to keep things lively.

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

by any observation posts or balloons,

sible ofr me to claim credit. But?
Well, my time would come!

' Clyde Morris Will See That
Retailers Keep in the
Right Track.
Households are bott limited in the
purchase ot wheat flour to one and
one-halt pounds per person, in the
household, per week, according to instructions
received by Clyde Morris,
the recently appointed retail grocery
representative for Marion county. Mr.
Morris will represent the grocers of
Marion county and it will be his duty
to see that they are posted on all
new food rulings as well as to investigate
and report violations.
Mr. Morris has willingly acceted his
appointment and is taking up his work
with much interest. He will co-operate
with the Marion county grocers in
and way possible and will be glad to
lend his services or give any advise.
He will cooperate with the local grocers

amendments to the present food regulations

individual consumers in the country

shall they sell and deliver more .flour
than is reasonably required by the
purchaser for his household or establishment
during the next thirty days.
Appeal to Farmers:?In order that
me may comply with the Allies
for urgent demand of the
wheat, and at the same time take
care of our domestic needs we must
have this year an earlier and more
complete marketing of the wheat in
farmers' hands than usual.' Appeal
to the farmers of your County to
bring all of their wheat to market before
May first. This is a war call
and a service for our Country in its
struggle for its very life.

either singly or in the aggregate,
more than two ounces of wheat
flour. Morover, they most not serve
any wheat products unless specially
ordered. They must not buy more
