Entrance of U. S. in the War
Causes Teutons to Reor
'HAVE 4 DIVISIONS
Fear of Supremacy by the
Allies Forces the Enemy
to Take Action.
(Correspondence of the Associated Press)
PARIS. Sept 7. The entrance of
America Into the war and the proba
bility that It soon would be lending
the allies tremendous aid in the
aerial department ot the straggle has
led Germany to re-organize and
strengthen Its own aviation branches
materially, according to The Temps.
This re-organization does not date
exclusively from the break with the
United States, but rather from the
battle of the Somme, but It has been
accelerated and intensified by the re
ports that hundreds, if not thousands.
of airplanes with the corresponding
aviators to man them, are soon to
be supplied to the Entente forces. The
re-organization of the German aerial
forces has taken the form of creating
four principal divisions into which the
fliers are now placed, roughly as fol
lows: The Army Fliers.
Army squadrillas or "Army fliers'
division," which are directly under the
command of the army chief of aviation
and the work of which consists main
ly of expeditions far to the rear ot
the lines. They also are employed
for bombardments, night flights,
protographic work, and the airplanes
employed are the most varied type, ac
cording to the character of the work
they are to do. Recently captured
prisoners say that a recently con
structed biplane of the Albatross type
is vastly superior to anything hereto
fore used by these squadrillas. It is
equipped with a 260 horse power
motor and attains a speed of from 100
to 115 miles an hour. It can rise to
an altitude of more than 2,000 yards
in nine minutes and carries two
machine guns. The machines travel
in groups of six or eight, according to
the position and needs of the army to
which they are attached.
The Troop Filers.
Corps squadrillas are "troop fliers"
which are attached to the staff head
quarters of the various German armies
and which are commanded by cap
tains. These generally remain with
in the sector of the armies to which
they are attached and are used in
general for reconnaissances, photo
graphing trenches, batteries and mak
ing patrol flights. HunUng squadrill
as, as they are called both by the
French and the Germans .are the
main attacking Instruments of the
German air forces, and for chasing
enemy machines which venture over
their lines. They are charged with
the destruction of the stationary bal
loons. The Battle Sgnadrihss.
Battle squadrillas or "flotillas" are
under the direction of great head
quarters, and shift from army to army
to carry out bombardments on military
establishments behind the front, as
well as ever and again open towns.
There are three of these squadrillas
now. Formerly there were more, Dut
the .others have been dismembered
and their units attached to other
arms of the aerial service. Squadrill
as one and two are generally trans
ported by train from place to place,
wherever they are most needed.
While perfecting their service in
the air, the Germans have also rapid
ly bettered their anti-aircraft meas
ures and weapons. The 77-milimeter
guns have given way to rapid-firing
guns of 105 milimeter calibre, and at
certain points along the front they
use shrapnel guns of 240-mllimeter
size. They possess special bullets for
the destruction of captive balloons,
but in many Instances have used them
with great cruelty against opponents
In airplanes. At least one squadrilla
captain, a Lieutenant Ellers, finally
forbade his men to carry these bullets
with them unless they were definitely
charged with raiding balloons.
Taube Out of Style Now.
The Germans, it Is said, are con
stantly putting new types of machines
Into the field. The famous Taube
went out ot style long ago, and It has
now been followed by the even more
famous Fokker, which less than a
year ago was considered the last and
final word in attacking airplanes. Its
inventor, a Dutchman, is now said to
be devoting himself to the perfection
of a machine with a 260 h. p. motor
which will break all records for
speed and efficiency.
Today the Rumpler seems to be the
favorite machine, though those with
ilo h. p. motors are not fast enough
to suit, and yet -the -machines will
hardly stand up "unaera heavier mo
tor. The raids on London were ac
complished with Gotha machines, but
these, though so recent that little is
known about them In France, are al
ready giving -way to faster airplanes,
especially to powerful Rumpler bi
planes, which have tremendous speed
and rising power. These machines,
of which there are not fewer than
thirty In the third battle flotilla, can
make great distances both because of
their powerful motors and because
of their huge gasoline tanks, two of
which, with a capacity apiece of 3S0
liters, are carried on each machine.
FIRE DAMAGES GROCERY WOO.
Explosion Is Cause Origin Yet a
The West End Grocery at the corner
of Ash and Garth was damaged by fire
at 2:30 o'clock this morning, amount
ing to about J400. The damages
were covered by insurance. The
origin of the fire Is not known. Mrs.
Lula Lamme, who lives across the
street fro mthe store heard a noise
which sounded like an explosion and
when she opened the door she saw the
store building in flames. Just what
caused the explosion Is a mlstery.
There were no explosive materials in
that part of the building. An investi
gation Is now being made. It is
thought that the store had been robbed
and then set on fire.

J. Kelly Pool, editor of the Cen

his paper: "Oh, yes. Max F. Meyer of
the Missouri University was born and
educated In Germany, all right, but
when he became a naturalized Amer

'If Germany wins the war, fifty years
hence Its government will rule the
American people. I do not want my
children to be put under this yoke,
which I escaped by coming here.'
Doctor Meyer appreciates liberty and
loves the land ot his adoption. Like
thousands of other erstwhile Ger

An Outlook on
When our allies entered the war their commercial
and financial horizon wai clouded with forebod-
ing. A pessimism, born of anticipation, disappear
ed only when the actual commercial gait was
realized. Business became very brisk after the
Marne. There had been a "psychological depres
sion," and the success in battle had restored the
national spirit the nation resumed buying.
The final reports of trade conditions showed that
the general state of domestic trade was good and
that the working class had never been more pros
perous. Where the war will lead us we have no
certain'means of knowing, but conditions here,
compared with those of other big nations at war,
give indubitable promise of a future of prosperity.
Our experience, in a modified form, is quite like-
11 . mr a a i m
ly to follow tintan s. lne psychological de
pression' ' that threatened us as we solemnly enter
ed the war is vanishing behind mammoth orders
for war sunnlies. It is largelv the waore-earners
who make a nation prosperous. The large de
mand for labor will bring an abundance of money.
Tn Enpland taxation raised prices and reduced the
purchasing power, but never fast enough to over
take the plentiful flow or wages, buch will be
the case here, perhaps in greater degree, for we
have not alone a domestic demand tq supply but
gigantic orders for export.

That will always be in style, always keep its shape and
wear well is the hind of suit that you will get if you have it
made by an expert ladie's tailor. Suits that are tailored to your
measure are far superior to the ready-made garment, because
a custom tailor has better material, better linings and better
sewing silks than is put in ready-made suits.
The custom-made suit is entirely made by the tailor himself,
no factory work is allowed, even the inner-lining is made by
hand. This insures perfect fit and non-shrinkage. The
same careful attention is paid to the making of other gar
ments; skirts, top-coats or dresses.
The custom-tailor makes a special study of each different
figure and by accurate measurments, the very best fit is ob
tained. For each garment a pattern is drafted, thus insuring
you against misfits which often occur in the ready-made clothes.
A suit made by us will please you because of its perfection
and beauty of style. There will be an added satisfaction in
knowing how every stitch is put in and that the workmanship
Special care is given to altering and remodeling
all garments. Our prices are reasonable.
