Escadrille Spad, 38,
Secteur Postal 240,
Q. C. 22, Aug. 11, 1918
Dear Mother:
I have just sent a little souvenir
to dad, made from one of the shells
X use in burning balloons. Tell me
if it arrives. If so, I may send some
more souvenirs. The Boche bom
barded us the other night but did
no damage. However, they are com
ing a little closer for I heard some
of the bombs whistle as they came
tumbling down. What did I do?
Oh, rolled over on the other side
and hoped the racket would soon
stop so I Could go to sleep.
They don't shut off the electric
lights now when the Boche come
overhead, because we have none.
We're back on a war basis and using
candles, but X am glad to report that
our barracks are finished and I live
in a tent no more, with its leaky
roof and danger of falling' on one
every time a strong wind comes up.
Of course,.we don't have the con
veniences here like we had at Me
lette, such as electricity, baths and
tennis courts, not forgetting the
bathing fountain and, come to
think of it, I guess those conven
iences are pretty well busted un,
since the Boche have been bombard
ing that place pretty regular. One
bomb landed squarely on the officers'
barracks. Fortunately, no officers
were in at the time, so no one was
hurt. The damage was not very
great, either.
Up in the Clouds
I have not done much flying since
I burned that balloon, except one
patrol, and that was a voluntary one
with two Frenchmen, and then the
clouds were so low (800 meters) and
thick that we lost our leader before
we had £ono half way to the lines.
I soon lost the other Frenchman in
the numerous balls of "cotton," but
kept on for the line just the same,
for if any balloons had been up It
was perfect weather for attacking
them. But nary a one was up, ex
cept a French one. Since there
were no Boche flying in the air
either, they rarely flying unless the
weather is very clear, I spent some
time flying around this lonely French
balloon, approaching it from differ
ent directions in order to train my
eyes in judging distances, since the
gun I use will not take effect at
close range or too far.
Hard to Judge
Judging one's distance from a |
Boche balloon while attacking is ;
quite a difficult matter, what with j
so many 'distracting'' things going
off around one. You can see how
valuable this training my eye on a
French balloon would be, where
everything was calm and tranquil. X
didn't go very close, however, be
cause it had been reported the day
before that a Spad, flown by a
Boche, had brought down a French
balloon in flames. I did not want to
be taken for that Boche, so soon
stopped maneuvering, flew around a
cloud, took a look around Rheims :
and seeing neither balloons nor |
Boche, pointed my plane in the gen
eral direction of a German antialr- I
craft battery near this city, which
is noted for Its activity and marks
manship, and let go with both guns.
In that murky atmosphere the flam
ing bullets from my balloon gun
looked like shooting stars as they
sped toward the "kultured" side of
the lines.
Another Plane
I was merely trying my guns, you
know, and they were working beau
tifully, when I had an intuition that
something was coming down on me.
Something was, for on looking up I
was startled to see a plane coming
straight down my way. Instinctively
I got out from under, watching the
oncoming plane meanwhile. As he
darted through a thin cloud I was
much relieved to see the white nose
and tail of my leader's machine, and
then he started to chase me all over
the lot. .
I didn't know what the big idea
was, but orders are to always follow
your leader, so I did my best to get
behind him, but he seemed in a very
polite humor that'day and did not
want to turn his back to me. I was
just as determined that he should,
though, so for some ten minutes we
were chasing each other's tails. In
cidentally, doing it right opposite
this battery X spoke of. It's a won
der they didn't help the fun along
with several well-placed "archies.
Probably they were tired, after the
big battle for none came our way.
and my leader Anally started home
There is a place to shoot neir our
camp, the target consisting of three
white rings drawn on the ground,
and I generally practice shooting
here every time I come home. As
we came to the target, however,
my leader on one side and I on the
other, I noticed a big French plane
high overhead, so decided not -to
practice just then.
That the big bird above me might
lay some "eggs." And that Is just
what he did do. His aim was pretty
punk, though, for the bomb even
missed the outer circle, and as luck
would have It, came down on the
side on which my leader was pass
ing so close that he was somewhat
startled as a bomb came whistling
past and landed on the ground be
neath him with a tremendous splash
and roar.
The big plane having passed on,
I had a little practice myself, and
say, I hit that inner circle nearly
evciV time. When I landed I want
ed to know what my leader was
chasing me around in circles for.
He laughingly explained that he was
having a mock combat and had kill
ed me four times and then surpfls
ed me by complimenting me on my
maneuvering, saying it was "tres,
treh bien." Sqch a compliment from
such a man, for he is an "ace" with
twelve Huns to his credit, carries
some weight, and you can believe I
properly appreciated the compli
. Honored With Bouquet
It may interest you to know that
the day I burned that was
not only Sunday, but the 4th of Au
gust, anniversary of the beginning
of the war, so the Frenchmen told
me. They celebrated it with a ban
quet of rabbit and champagne, and
got very angry at me because I re
fused to drink any. Not that I
never do, because drinking is as
Axed a custom to a Frenchman as
eating bread Is to an American, and
sometimes on very special occasions
I drink just a little. One could not
do otherwise, else ho would Insult
the whole escadrille, but since I in
tended to go after balloons directly
after dinner, there was no celebra
tion big enough to force me to help
it along, for I knew I would need
every faculty I possessed In perfect
working order to be successful. Even
the Frenchman that was going with
me laid off the champagne.
Of course one always comes back
from attacking a balloon in a zig
zag course, but I preferred my brain
to direct said course Instead of a
glass of champagne.
I have one balloon now. It Is a
start, and we will now see if the
rule that a "milk and water" man
is a failure cannot be busted. In
one of my former letters I once re
marked that "(he greatest danger
in approaching a balloon is run
ning into the cable"—"and a bul
et." I should add, now that I have
been near a Boche one.
While we are on the subject of
balloons, I belter tell you that my
commander, Lieut. Jladon, when it
was officially confirmed that I had
burned a balloon, congratulated me
heartily, glad to know I had, at
least begun to fulfill his expecta
tions. But his words of praise were
much fewer than his words of cau
tion. Naturally he knew of the dif
ferent planes I .had ventilated with

Boche bullets, and the fact seemed
to him to point to recklessness on
my part. Anyway, he cautioned me
never to attack a balloon If I saw
a Boche in the air, and to always
look thoroughly and carefully for
such Boche before attacking. "If
you don't, said he "you may per
haps burn fifteen more' and then—
he finished the sentence with a ges
' ture of shoulder, eyes and hands so
eloquent of my finish, that It left no

It is that the soldiers take It green.
Believe me, I did not pass such a

Advice to the Lovelorn
I am twenty, and 1 have taken
quite a fancy to a man of twenty
two. 1 do not know him personally,
but I expect to be Introduced to htm
wllthln a few days. Is there any
thing I could say to him ao he would
know I cared for him?
I have a friend who has spoken
to him about me. and he thinks I am
a very nice girl. The other night I
saw the young man I am going to
meet, talking to another girT. From
what 1 hear, this girl is very jealous
of him. Pleaae tell me how I can
gain his friendship. I have no one
to tell me what to do, as I am all
alone, so I thought you might be kind
enough to help me. ANXIOUS.
I wish it were possible for me to
talk to you instead of writing, poor
little girl, who has no one to ask for
advice. The first thing I'd tell you
would be that nothing could be more
111-advised than to tell the young
man. at your first meeting, you cared
for him. He would probably take to
the "tall timber," and who coul°d
blame him.
It takes a great deal of skill and
much worldly wisdom for a woman
to tell a man. successfully, that she
cares for him, and then—she does
not really tell him she only shows
her preference in many little ways.
But to come out and say what you
suggest would be the greatest pos
sible mistake.
When you first meet the young
man talk about every-day things or
listen while he talks to you. At the
same time, there is no telling how
deeply he may be Interested in the
"other girl" you mention. Try and
interest yourself In other things,

the news —that will give you some
thing to talk about save your
