The First army has its cap off to f rank ^nke, w ho has brought down 11 ® nemy observation balloons and one plBDe within a week. Luke vol unteere<1 (,,r probably the most peril pus air work * oln k out on stunts as toniHhin e to his comrades, and also probably »bounding to the writes 1 rederick A. Smith in the Chi cago Tribune. I sought out this demigod of avia tion who has become in a few days the American ace of aces In balloon destruction, and found him to be a boy of nineteen, whose bine eyes show ingenuous surprise when he is asked about his exploits. His enterprises contribute to the fine record of Amer ican aviators in this offensive. Sixty three Boche planes have been downed in a week, nine of which are already officially recorded, and 30 balloons. Chicago Boy Downs One. enemy, Thorne C. Taylor, son of Judge Tay lor of Chicago, dropped one. adding to his already fine record. Eddie Ricken backer, former auto racer, just out of the hospital after a mastoid operation, added three to his string, two of which are official, giving him seven Boche air men to date. When the offensive opened volun teers were asked for balloon attacks. Luke and Joseph F. Wehner of Ev erett, Mass., stepped forward, although they had only been pilots at the front for a few months. They started, but became separated ; but each got a balloon. That means they went singly far across the foe's line and flew close to the ground under the fire of machine guns and aircraft guns, which, with "flaming onions." were filling the air with fire. The onions are balls of fire intended to ignite the plane. It is said that Lnke in the Marne campaign followed a Boche ace far into German territory and dropped him, but there was no chance to con firm this for the official record. That was his first blood, and he determined bis next accomplishment should be made official. After dropping the bal loon in flames Luke recrossed our lines, alighting near an American ob servation balloon and getting an im mediate written statement from the observer, who saw the battle. The next day Luke was accompa nied by Wehner. who. falling behind and reaching the other side of the Ger man front, was just in time to discover Luke sending down a balloon In flames unconscious of the fact that seven Hnn planes were right on his tail. Wehner, rising, came down on the Boche near est Luke, shooting down the Hun and saving his comrade. Wehner then crippled another Boche, both then e» coping. Lake's plane was riddled, a bullet hitting under the seat back of him. damaging the tank and cutting a strut. Attacks Antiaircraft Guns. Saturday Luke went out with Joe Dawson, getting another balloon, but he was piqued because the bag didn't burn, and descended almost to the ground, driving the antiaircraft gun ners away from their pieces. Young Lnke, who quit school in Phoenix, Ariz., to enter the war. causes Germany a loss of $7.000 for each balloon dropped, in addition to valuable instruments and maps requir ing months to make. On Monday eve ning Luke and Wehner announced that they would get three, the first at 7:15, | the second at 7:30 and the third at 7:45. Observers near the front saw the three fall almost exactly on sched- ; ule. The daring flyers were forced to i return after dark, but were guided by rockets and flares, and finally reached home, both wrecking their machines in alighting. The Arizona boy one night on re turning after bagging two more was forced to land far away and was picked j up after walking some distance, sus pected as a German in an American j uniform. He proved his identity, but | was forced to wait until morning be- ! fore returning to his airdrome. Rickenbacker Is a different style of j battler. "He lies in the sun." often 20,000 feet high, attacking only when j be bas the advantage or some eom rude beneath needs help. He always flh , s alone 0n s; 1>turda y, northeast of Kan bombers back toward our lines. He maneuvered into the sun and came down on the rear German, then rising j sharply or "zooming the German." He > escaped to a safe altitude easily, as the downward swoop has such terrific ^ pee d it carries the plane up like a jj lis b when the "zoom" starts. Viguelles, Rickenbacker encountered four Boches who wore pursuing Amer Mayor Joins Union. Mayor Oie Hanson of Seattle.
