Flying With Shaffer
Escadrilie Sped 38,
Seeteur Postal 340,
G. C. 22,
August 21, 1918.
Dear Mother: —Now that I am right
where the big, battle was, near Cha
teau-Thierry, 1 have plenty of
chances to see just how much dam
age artillery given free rein can do.
It's a beautiful country hereabouts
and even Ihe passing of temporary
war clouds was not sufficient to dim
the scenery. 1 had ample opportu
nity to view some of it the first day
we arrived, for as we had flown to
a new "piste" we naturally had no
arrangements made for being fed.
Army Lives on Stomach
Our stomachs soon made tis agree
with Napoleon that un army lives on
it's stomach, so the whole escadrtl'.o
piled into a truck and away we went
to hunt some grub. Following a
road that followed all the curves
and twists of the Marne river was
a sight almost beautiful enough to
make one forget his hunger —almost,
hut not quite. Evidence of the bom
bardment was on every hand here
several houses demolished, and again
a thick wall which commanded an
open stretch of road would be cut
full of business-like holes for ma
chine guns, and apple orchards with
nary an apple in their shady depths
were simply masses of barbwire. a
use that their owner, I am sure,
never intended them for. ery tew
of the villages were inhabited, al
though a few had returned to their
partly demolished houses. We finally
arrived at a fair-sized village .thickly
populated with half a dozen different
nationalities ot soldiers and many
Fair Sex. but— '
I even saw some American can
teen girls. And while I am on the
subject of American girls—we passed]
one Red Cross girl on the road. She
was driving an enormous truck and;
doing it well, too, but she sure did;
get the "vazzoo" from the French
men, for she was the toughest look
ing specimen I have ever seen of the
angelic sex. In my opinion, it was
not so much Ihe girl's fault as her
work, for such rough work will have
its effect even on a man.
Tho Democratic French
Well, we had a wonderful dinner,
and had it with the officers, an event
that would probably cause a court
martial in any other army, but it
just goes to show how close French
officers keep to their men, and yet
they are as much respected as in
any other army. There even hap
pened to be a pretty girl left in the
town bombardments generally
leave the ugly ones —and she waited
on the table, serving us with a six
fcourse dinner, which is pretty good
considering how close we were to the
front. > The first course, as usual, j
consisted of the whole fish cooked
"a la naturale," head, entrails,
scales and tail being removed by the
diner. Don't look so sick! It really
is very good after one gets the cam
ouflage off. And while I am helping
your appetite for dinner, I better
tell you how the cook took a black
ing brush to get the dust oft our
bread for the supper. It had ac
quired quite a coating en route, and
after he had brushed the dust off
and handed il to me, he matter-of
faetly began brushing his coat and
shoes with the same brush. It tickled
me considerably, and I left out a
hearty laugh, which was a bigger
surprise (o that Frenchman than a
5-frano tip.
Wine Better Than Water
To come back to the dinner,
though, the water given us was ab
solutely unfit to drink. Looked
more like milk in color, and as for
the taste—ugh! t had to drink
something, and since wine was all
that was nroeurable, I took some of
that, for I had drunk nothing all day I
and was indeed in need of some
thing wet. The Americans dining in
the same restaurant looked at our
commander in awed admiration, for
he was wearing all his medals, and
it did indeed make a most imposing
display. Another officer with us
also had all his on, and he having
some ten Huns to his credit had con
siderable; therefore, as an escadrilie,
we made considerable splash.
Tablecloth For Napkin
Everyone was in quite a merry
humor and since no napkins were
served the officers began allotting
each other rart of the tablecloth as
a substitute. 1 was out of luck
again, as the cloth just about
leached the edge of my place, which
was embarrassing to say the least.!
What would I do if they passed the i
tingerbowls? Fortunately, that ca
lamity did not occur.
Chateau de Shaffer
The inhabitants of Shaffer's
Heights are not the only ones who
can boast of a bungalow! You
should see my war bungalow! Of
course, I only use one room .and
that, as a blase clerk would put it,
is "second ficor front," no baths or
electric lights and don't stretch too
quickly, you'll break something, and
Ihe Boche have done too much of
that already. It's quite a nice room
for one who is hunting the simple,
old-time effects. I even have lace
curtains on the window and there
are actually three windowpanes left
—I counted them, and to make sure
tho other throe were paneiess pushed
my hand through them. It's so iong
since I have locked through a pane
of glass that I wasn't quite sure
whether it was a mirage or not. And
would you believe it, an iron bed
with a real mattress? It's a fact!
1 turned a somersault on it and still
have a bump on my head where 1
hit the celling to prove Its springi
ness, which same, if it does nothing
is relieved of his duty as a citizen nor can he escape
by neglecting to perform that duty. A governmental
is usually daused by good men wickedly neglecting to
and vote. Such have no right to complain at
High Taxes or Public Immorality
All Voters Must Register
Again This Fall
Saturday, Oct. 5
pise, will teach me to confine my
looping where there is plenty of sky
100m. Sad to say, there are two
enormous mirrors, also, so 1 shall
do considerable suffering. since
every time I sec myself I get a pain.
Wonder if others see me thus? Of
course. I know you don't, but moth
ers always are prejudiced.
The former occupant of said room
certainly had a perverted idea of in
terior decorating, for the walls were
plastered with nothing but fashion
plates from La Mode.
The Demon I'TlCs
And you should see our dining
room. It's nothing more or less than
the village schoolhouse, wtth sen
tences still on the blackboard and
charts for the medical class hung
everywhere. Judging from the num
ber of flies, they must have moved
in when the children moved out.
Golly! I never saw so many in all
my life! Yesterday, while eating
my soup, I laid a small piece 01
bread down near my plate for use ,n
the near future, but when I wanted
it I could not find it, so well was it
I camouflaged by hungry flies, and
that isn't all. either. Many beee are
in evidence and several Frenchmen
have already been stung. It way
sound strange, but I have not suf
fered in that way yet—yes, 1 nave
mv fingers crossed and am knocking
wood, for I have not forgotten how
much they loved me in my younger
Hun l oops the Loop
My hunting range will n °w extend
around Soissons instead of Rheims,
and from reports it's quite a lively
sector. The first day ou * a P a * ,?L ,?
our escadrilie got in a fight wiith
biplane and one of them got the su -
prise of his life when he got on the
Boche's tail and began shooting and
the Boche did a loop. The next
thing the Frenchman knew he was
being used for the target.
I give this instance because Its u*-
ceptional for a blplane-a heavy,
two-man plane—to do .. . t
batics. It's, not only
dangerous, as the wings arei 1 .
come off with the unusual st.ai.i_
The -Boche biplane as a rule
a straight dive for home when a -
tacked, but it looks as if the rule s
not followed here. Anjway, Urn
morning my commamier knocked
down one Boche. and a lieutenant
another. What am 1 doing? Noth
inn at present, but waiting for n .
plane to be ready. You see, itwas
having its motor changed, and I
went to fetch it to-day from the
place where I had gone en panne
incidentally. I got lost on t ie way
here and nearly landed in Taris. It
was mv own fault, of course, being
so cocksure that I knew the route
that I paid little attention to my
map, with the result that 1 went
sailing over Chateau-Thierry with
hardly a second look. Soon discov
ering I was lost, I came down near
an aviation field, loaded up with
some more gas, found where I was,
and stat—• hack, soon arriving at
my proper loost.
Chateau-Thierry After
It. was when we went in the autos
to the place from which 1 was to
fly my plane that I actually saw
something that looked like the re
sults of a battle, for we went byway
of Chateau-Thierry. Thus we had a
chance to see the results of shot and
shell in this hotly-contested sector.
We not only saw it- we had it duly
impressed on us, for many of the
shells had landed in the road and |
the newly-fixed holes gave us some
verrific bumps. Hitting a bump with
a' truck —or a Ford—is nothing
amusing, epecially when it happens
often. It's not like getting a bump
in an airplane. There you bounce
up and stay up, but in an auto there
is always a comeback. When you go
u pyou always come down, and the
seat is sure to meet you half-way
every time. However, the novelty of
the sights along the way were worth
the discomfort. Shell holes there!
were everywhere, and villages were]
mostly debris. Trenches zigzagged
through tho clover, oats and rye
fields, and apple orchards were noth-j
ing but barbwlre entanglements,:
while all along the mad there were!
numerous places for battery em
placements. Piles of empty shells
lay in numerous places, and yet in
direct contrast to all this, the farm
ers were cutting their oats and hay
as if nothing like a battle had ever
occurred. Oh, yes, the Huns left
the grain, because they were in too
big a hurry to leave to take anything
Trees All Destroyed
The saddest thing I saw, I think,
were the mutilated, dead and dying
trees along the road. France's roads
are noted for their good construction
but they are also noted for the trees
that line their sides. This not only
makes travel cooler for the autoist
but is pleasing to the eye as well.
Sad to say, many of these big trees
were cut clean off by bullets. Others
shot up so badly they died,
while some of the small forests
we passed through were literally
stripped of branches, so terrific had
been the hail of bullets. Which will
give you a vague idea of what the
American troops went through to
win that battle, which Harrisburg,
Dauphin and Marysville helped to
celebrate. ]
Hunting Trouble
Finally got my plane ready yes
terday and tried it over Chateau-
Thierry. As I was at 2,000 meters I
took a good look around the country
in order to get the lay of the land,
as this Is an entirely new sector to
me, and since there are no trenches
to guide an aviator as to the position
War Results Convince Kaiser
| and Austrian Emperor the
j People Must Dominate
Washington, Oct. 3. —Signs are
mulyplying in reports reaching thi
State Department front various
agencies,in neutral European coun
tries of the rapid weakening of the
despotic control which the military
elements in Germany nnd Austria
have imposed upon the civilian pop
ulation. So extensive and conse
quential are the events quickly fol
lowing one another in Berlin and
I lenna that American officials are
becoming convinced the Im
perial rulers have been forced, how
ever reluctantly, to - the conviction
that if they arc to preserve their
dynasties from destruction they must
yield to the growing demands of
the civilian elements for the rights
of participation in the government
during this crisis.
The military parties have retained
their control only because of their
asserted ability to secure a military
decision that would confirm German
supremacy over continental Europe
and the British Isles as well. Now
that the German armies are being
defeated and driven back into Ger
many, and the nation is confronted
with the painful certainty of an in
vsion and retributive justice for the
wrongs Inflicted upon the French
and Belgians, the influence of the
pan-Germans and military parties
is waning and it is believed that the
two emperors have decided that if
they are to retain the support of
the people they must turn to the
civilian parties that have been de
manding a voice in affairs.
It was pointed out yesterday that
President Wilson repeatedly has de
clared that with the military rulers
of the Central Powers convicted of
broken faith and deceit there can be
no discussion of the peace for which
the Germanic people apparently are
clamoring. Hence the belated at
tempts of the emperors to erect a
structure of real democratic govern
ment through the creation of cab
inets responsible to the parliaments
in the hope that with these the En
tente statesmen will be willing to
confer about peace.
As a half-way measure and in a
desperate effort to save the Imperial
prerogatives, Emperor William al
ready has tried the expedient of
himself selecting leaders of the op
position parties for minor places in
the cabinet and promising to for
ward the enactment of popular
measures. But the Socialists gener
ally have declined to accept any
thing short of absolute control
through the Reichstag of the cab
inet without reference to the wishes
of the Emperor and officials be
lieve that at length they are about
to realize their aspirations.
Such a change in Germany doubt
less would be followed, if not indeed
preceded, by a similar revolution in
Avstrian parliamentary govern
ment and it is fully expected that
as soon as real representative gov
ernment is a fact In the central em
pires there will be an irresistible
movement towards peace even on the
terms laid down by President Wil
i of the line, he must needs keep an
eye on his map. If he loses himself
on his map, be certainly is a gono
goose.. So I flew around looking
over the country, impressing the lo
cation of large forests and rivers in
my mind, as that is all one can seo
at our usual flying height of 5,000
meters. It's almost impossible to
find a road at that height, camou
flaged as they are, tand as for arail
road, I've given up trying to look for
theni, as 1 never can find them. I
had been flying around this way for
some fifteen minutes when I sud
denly saw a big biplane coming to
ward me from the direction of the
A Fresh Humorist
Not knowing whether it was
French or Boche 1 climbed into the
sun to have a look. It turned out
to be French, so I swung around and
continued on my tour of inspection,
when I noticed another big plane
immediately overhead. However. I
knew that w'.s a French plant right
away, but as he was only some hun
dred meters above me, I kept an eye
on him. "It was well I did, for when
directly over me he stood up on one
wing and giving his rudder a kick
came diving head first down on me.
I did not know what the Sam Hill
the big idea was. Maybe he thought
I was a Hun, or he may have only
been amusing himself. Nevertheless
I lost no time in getting out from
under, for with such a big plane
there was no telling whether he was
out of control or playing. As lie
went on down and landed then I
dove for home myself.
Pool Shooting in Clouds
' Coming down over the "piste" I
opened fire with both guns on a
small pool of water situated in the
middle of the field. Golly! you
should have seen the water fly! 1
was particularly interested in seeing
if my telescope sight was regulated
right, also whether my balloon gun
was in good working order. It sure
was, for it was a sight for sore eyes
to see those flaming bullets go hiss
ing into the water. They did not all
go in the pool, of course, some land
ing alongside, setting fire to the
grass in a number of places. The
French pilots are still kidding me
about my marksmanship, saying 1
actually killed two fishes, that being
the number of holes in the target
which was floating in the water.
However, it was not a big pool, and
I am satisfied that if I group my
bullets as well when shooting at a
balloon it will surely burn.
This morning I made my first pa
trol over our new lines. I wasted no
time in looking for Boche, letting
that duty to my lieujenant. I was
more interested in studying my map.
Thus we got down near our old
hunting ground at Rheims, and I
saw my loader suddenly dive. I
promptly followed. looking around
meanwhile to see the object of the
dive. Far, far below I saw four
planes, but they looked like Spads lo
me, which they were, as the lieu
tenant pulled up and started home
soon after, as we had been out over
two hours then.
Guardian Angel on Job
When I arrived at the home roost
T found it was. not the four Spads
the lieutenant was diving on. He h.. I
seen a biplane Boche right over me,
and since his motor was not power
ful enough to pull him up to the
Boche's heights, he dove In the hope
that I would follow and thus get out
of danger. And nil the time I had
been ambling along, all my attention
being concentrated on reading my
map, blissfully ignorant of the men
ace overhead! Truly my guardian
angel has not fallen down on the job

Realizes That Humanity and
Reason Should Control
Central Powers
By Associated Press
Amsterdam, Oct. 3.—Baron Von
Hussarek in his address to the Aus
trial lower house of parliament on
Tuesday, admitting that the situa
tion resulting from the withdrawal
of Bulgaria from the war was grave
but in no wise crtical, declared the
Teutonic allies had taken com
prehensive military measures for
ameliorating the sltuaton.
| "We are making good progress,"
said the premier, "and according to
[communications from competent
quarters I can declare that we have
done everything to permit us calmly
to face further developments of the
| Balkan affair. On this front our
troops, standing shoulder to shoul
der with the German troops, are
splendidly preserving our unshak
able. alliance.
"As in battle, so we will go hand
in hand to work for peace. Mean
while it is not permitted us to lift
our eyes from the terrible welter of
battle. The dreadful check human
ity is suffering in the march of civi
lization by this prolonged trial is be
coming clearer."
Baron von Hussarek urged that it
was the injunction of humanity, as
