HOW NAMES BECOME CHANGED
Sometimes Intentionally, but Mora
Often Due to the "Wear and
Tear of Time."
"Who "Was Who?" is" the suggested
title for a new book to contain the
names of all persons who have
changed their names. A new publica
tion will do that in England. If the
work Is carried back far enough It will
be found that scarcely n name has
survived the wear and tear of time.
Some of the changes are Intentional,
like our dally applications In court, but
most of them are due to bad spellers
'or poor pronunciation and phonetic
spelling to express the errors of pro-'
mraclatlon. Our Dutch ancestors had
a habit of cutting off everything that
went down to and Including the "Van."
The name "Burch" was originally
Birch" and meant a man who lived by
the birch tree. It Is a curious com
ment on this new book that the Lon
don newspaper editor who is putting it
out has juggled his own name after
the English custom, when taking a
tile. Good names are a misfortune
when they are veed like family por
traits to make snobs. Exchange.

Washington. Skillful use of French
cavalry has innrked General Foch's
tactics ever since he took over control
of the allied armies as supreme" com
mander, according to information
reaching military circles here. The
horsemen have played an Important
role In the whole battle of 1918, as
the struggle which began March 21
with the first German drive has come
to be known.
The employment of swift-moving
columns In the present counter-stroke
from the AIsne-Marne line has been
noted In the dispatches. Again Gen
eral Foch took advantage of the great
mobility of the mounted arm to throw
It In wherever his advancing Infantry
units threatened to lose touch with
each other in the heat and confusion
of the contest. No gaps have been left
where the enemy might strike back,
for always the horsemen came up to
fill the hole unlil the Infantry line
could be rectified and connected In a
The same tactics marked the first
use of French cavalry in the battle of
ricnrdy, when the French took over
55 miles of front from the British
to permit the latter to mass reserves
at seriously threatened points of the
line farther north.
Cavalry Fights Afoot.
A French cavalry' corps complete
with light artljlery, armored cars and
cyclists arrived first on the scene in
lMcardy and relieved the British. They
fought it out afoot until the heavy
French Infantry arrived and took over
Three days later the horsemen were
on the move again, this time hurrying
to the front, where the enemy was
hitting hard at the Lys line. The cav
alry rode hard as the advance guard
of the French Infantry columns march
ed toward St. Omar. In the first
24 hours, despite the long strain
of fighting In Picardy, they covered
80 miles without losing a man or a
horse on the way. In GO hours they
had transferred their whole corps over
125 miles and jjrrlved east of Mont
"It was a wonderful sight,", writes
the chief of staff of a division. "The
horses were in fine condition ; the men
were cheerful and went singing, in spite
of the sufferings and privations they
had to endure.
"In truth, our boys looked a little
tired, but they were all very proud
that such an effort had been asked
of them and all were bearing It cheer
fully." The cavalry corps stood In support
of the British for ten days In April
after the enemy had forced the line
held by the Portuguese division. It
maintained communication between
two British armies and organized the
ground from Mont Cassel to Mont
Kemmel, while the French army
moved up behind It. As the French
Infantry came Into llnethe cavalry was
drawn off to the" left In the
Mont Kemmel region, and for five days
the horsemen, fighting afoot with two
Infantry divisions, withstood the ter
rific assaults of the Germans who
soughtto hammer a way through be
hind Ypres at any cost.
They stood steady bombardment for
days, and when the infantry was hem
med In on top of Mont Kemmel,
the cavalry drove forward in counter
attack and held oft the shock divisions
of the enemy while the French gun
ners got their pieces away.
Later, at the battle of Locre, the
cavalry also shaoed fully with the In
fantry, blocking gaps in the line, and
the final definite occupation of the
town for the allies was accomplished
by a cavalry battalion. A sergeant
and a handful of dragoons drove 40
Germans out of the town, and at -another,
point a cavalry officer and 20

A few days later the same cavalry,
after another long ride, met the en

fighting today Is waging fiercely, and
where the horsemen again are en

DEATH IN FLYING
New York. Considerable concern
ha been expressed at the large num
ber of fatal accidents reported from
our American military and naval avia
tion training camps. Considering the
risks the novice necessarily takes and
the very special physiological and psy
chological factors that enter Into the
science of flying, these fatal accidents
are few In proportion to the number
of men undergoing training, and they
are not more numerous than those on
the training fields of Great Britain,
France and Italy.
A perfect knowledge of all the rules
of the game of flying will not save a
man who lacks confidence in himself
and Is inclined fo hesitate. A half
second of Indecision may be fatal. In
itiative, the sporting instinct and a
certain irresponsibility, qualities In
herent in American youth, have been
found of far greater value in the air
than the logical, sclentlnc, severely
disciplined character of the Gvrmans.
and account ror the superiority of the
allied aviators in general.
The most eminent of British scien
tists have devoted special study to the
psychological and physiological as
pects of flying.
One authority says that good eye
sfglit, normal hearing, good "muscle
sense" and equilibration are Indispen
sable qualifications. But most impor
tant of all Is the right temperament
not an easy thing for a medical hoard
to examine. Of the types the imagi
native and the unimaginative the
imaginative youth is said to make the
better pilot If he can keep his imagi
nation under control.
Surgical Operations No Bar.
In the British air service previous
history of wounds and disease Is thor
oughly investigated. Persistent head
aches, vertigo and easily induced fa
tigue are serious defects. But some
times even a serious surgical opera
tion Is not regarded as Important.
Thus a doctor recently passed as fit
for flying a man who had quite a large
piece missing from the frontal region

and severe coughing and vomiting en
sue. Direct contact with the spray causes
blistering .of the skin, and the vapor
penetrates through the clothing. Gas
masks, of . course, do not protect
against this. The symptoms are similar
to pneumonia high fever, heavy
breathing and often stupor.
The damage done by mustard gas s
a slow and InAidlous development. The
breaking down of the affected tissues
Is slow, the height being reached from
five to ten days after the burn Is re
ceived. The painlessness Is also a
marked characteristic. Healing Is
slow. t ,
Mustard gas besides being used In
direct attack, Is also used for "neutra
lization." For Instance, where supplies
and ammunition are being brought up,
a few mustard gas shells will result
In dangerous confusion and delay. A

Considerable Importance Is attached
to the respiratory system. In addition
to good, healthy lungs and vital capac
ity, the would-be pilot must pass a
breath-holding test. This gives an in
dication of his capacity to stand the
strain of flying at high altitudes,
where the air is rarefied and breath
ing Is difficult. No man with a weak
heart can hope to pass the tests.
Self-balSncIng Is another test. The
candidate has to stand on one leg with
his eyes shut uud his hands on his
hips. There Is also the old test for
sobriety walking a straight line heel
to toe with eyes open and then turn
ing round and walking back without
losing balance. The Importance of
this test can be understood, seeing
that an aviator flying In a dark cloud
or in a fog becomes unconscious of his
position and sometimes the machine
Is actually upside down. It Is essen
tial that he should not lose a second
in recovering his balance.
The throat, nose and ear are care
fully examined, for any defects might
seriously handicap a man during the
great strain that all flying Imposes.
With regard to the eyes, It Is consid
ered that pilots should have perfect
color vision, In order to pick out the
color or marking of hostile machines,
and in recognizing signal lights and In
judging the nature of landing grounds.
Air Sickness Rare.
A candidate who suffers from sea
sickness or train sickness would not
be rejected on those grounds alone.
Air sickness, caused by the rolling and
pitching of the airplane, Is a very rare
complaint, and sickness usually occurs
Immediately after landing.
