German plans for a resumption of the offensive have . been seriously hampered by sudden blows of the Al lies along- the front.

AVIATORS GIVE TEXAS ANOTHER BIG SPECTACEE FORMATION FLYING WHICH IS NOW BEING PRACTICED AT ALL FLYING CAMPS, SO IM PRESSIVE. DALLAS, Texas, May z-j. iue ators have given Texas another spee- tacle. Formation flying which now is being practiced in all the aviation camps, is so "different," so impressive tHriiiino- witnpss that it has ihiu hu.mm.o - . overcome the ennui with which the avowee citizen has viewed a sky flecked with individual aviators, and the epi demic of "arched neck," which was common when the aviators first came south to practice, again threatens. There is something about the ap pearance of airplanes in formation, each fiver rigidly keeping an exact dis tance from the others, that Impresses one with the feeling that ttiese meD actually, have control of the air. The simple airplane may respond to condi tions in the air, rising ana railing to uatlon, but in formation riying eacn must maintain his proper place, and the sight of a fleet of machines, flying in a triangle or in a square, causes the real ization that conquest of the air had ze advanced to a point hitherto unreal The formation flying usually starts in the evening, at about the civilian dinner hour, when the air is generally quiet. This adds 'to the SiTie9 of the housewife because when there is a fleet of war planes just over tne , nouae dipping ---dB , - -;;" ter nor husband or father is going to ai'Vome in to dinner."

Aviators on this duty must travel in groups, guards flying at the side, before, behind and, above the planes which carry explosives to be dropped upon the enemy. The leader usually flies much higher than tho others in the part, not only for the ad vantage of the additions vision his height will give, buet also so as to be able to dart down upon an enemy plane which undertakes to break up the party. The scout planes travel alone and the aviators who will adhere to this branch of the service are not so much in need of skill at formation flying. Neither is the artillery branch nor the . contact patrol, which latter branch must per fect itself In flying low to report the position of its own and enemy troops during the progress of a battle. Training in all branches of the fly ing service is highly specialized now and the concentration school at Camp Diok is filled with men who have com pleted their ground school training and are awaiting to be assigned to a fly ing school as soon as. there is room for them. The student aviators have become a part of the community life in many Texas cities and are much liked. CLAIMS SHE FURNISHED INTOXICANTS TO SAILORS A colored woman named.
