UNHURT IN FLAMING PLANE
American Airmen Give Demonstration
of Efficiency of New Aircraft
Fireproofing Compound.
A hair-raising demonstration of the
efficacy of a new aircraft fireproof
ing compound was staged at Atlantic
City, N. J., a few weeks ago by two'
4merican airmen, late of the Lafay
ette Escadrille, reports Popular Me
chanics magazine, in an illustrated 1
article. Each of the men first donned
a special flying suit and metal helmet,
both of which had been painted with
the compound. Mechanics then
sprayed each with gasoline. Mean
while the plane, which also had been
painted with the preparation, was sim
ilarly drenched with gasoline. Pilot
and passenger climbed into their cock
pits. As the ,engine was started a
torch was applied to airmen and air.
craft. Roaring forward over the air.
dronme, like d flaming, smoking comet,
the plane rose into the air and for
five minutes horrified the spectatorr.
At the end of this time the flames
had died out and the plane was
brought to earth Careful Inspection
having been made, airmen and air.
plane were found to be unharmed ex
cept for a coating of soot.
Lunch Sentiment
It is fashionable these days to dis
count the "little red schoblhouse" and
remind sentimental political orators
who wish to defend it and other tradi
tions with a' stute constabulary, that
it was the workroom of an , verwbrked
teacher. But the "carry your own
lunch movement," which follows some
years of "proper hot lunch" in our
schools and offices, does bring the old
days back when the last half-hour be
fore loon was a squirming, anxious
wait before Johnny and Bobbje could
examine their little tin boxes and swap
apples and pears and thick cheese
sandwiches, and bopst about their
mothers' cakes. Those were the days
when hard-boiled eggs cost 2 cents,
instead of 10, ahd the doughnut and
the cookie were dot stereotyped bakery,
products but the treasure of home jars
on the topmost pantry shelf. Those
were the days!
Pollu to Keep His "Kepl.".
Some months ago stalwarts of the
old French army were grieved to
learn that the kepi was to go the way
of the red trousers, its place being
taken by a steel helmet for parade
occasions and a soft bonnet for u.
dress uniform. The decree was al
ways unpopular, since the kept, in ad
dition to being comfortable and smart,
is immemorably associated with the
glory of French arms.
Now, however, the minister of war
answers a deputy in the Journal Of
fdeel by stating that a return to the
kepl is actually "munder consideration.
