I / Sometimes when you sit back in your chair \" l '|
tj and look around the room you wonder what \J
,>y little thing could be added to the decorations to \
I j make the room more beautiful. Every person has \
I a certain amount of artistic temperament. Every ]
• home lover wants the home attractive. There \
i might be a number of things necessary to make
the room more pleasing to the eye. Perhaps one
I i of those things is the little matter of curtains.
Of course, if you wish to have curtains made
tip to tit the windows it will be quite an easy
matter to select from our line of grenadines.
-crims. marquisettes and madras. Something
,yi at 25c a yard will answer the purpose adniir
ably, or you may select up to 75c a yard and /
then if you want something like Scotch swiss /

j Waves Aside Own Accom
■ plishments in Air to Laud
Other Flyers
That the romance of the recent
| war was to be found in the air was
I evident to the audience that enjoyed
the lirst-hand story of his experiences
Iby Captain "Eddie" Rickenbacker.
' America's ace of aces, at the Or
pheuin Theater last evening.
The famous flyer, wearing the rib
-5 bons of the D. S. C„ the Croix de
| Guerre with four palms, and the
! Medaille Militaire, made a very fa-
I vorable impression upon and was
j heartily applauded at frequent in
tervals by an enthusiastic audience.
His talk, interspersed with hunvor
; ous stories and anecdotes, was fol
i lowed by .a number of photographs
' and moving pictures showing some
|of America's foremost air lighters
• and an actual combat in the air be
tween a German l-'okker and a
' French Bpad, taken over the Amer
ican front.
Tells Story of White
j The story he told of Lieutenant
; Wilbur White, of New York City,
commanding the 147 th Aero Pursuit
: Squadron, was one of extraordinary :
i heroism. "During the battle of the J
j Marne I went out on a reconnais- j
! sance mission with my squadron, the
94th Pursuit Squadron (.the only aero j
outfit, by the way. that went into )
; Germany with the Army of Occupa
itioni. Two other squadrons were
j assigned me for flank protection.
I' one on the right, the other on the
left. While flying over the Ger
man lines we ran into a veritable
army of enemy planes, which seemed
'to be everywhere. I could see that
i it was going to be some 'dog tight.'
"One of Lieutenant White's in
experienced flyers was set upon by a
German during the mix-up. As he
was getting the range and setting
his sights the lieutenant opened up. :
but his guns jammed. Without hesi
tation. and in order to save the life
i of this boy of his squadron, he dived
headlong at the German and rammed :
' him, both planes going over a hun- !
! dred miles an hour. The fuselages
'of the two planes telescoped and
'dropped to the ground in flames. For
i sheer bravery it was the greatest and
' finest thing, to my mind, that has
i happened in the air in this or any
i other army. The sad part about his
death was that he was on his last
flight and had already received or
ders to return to America as an in
structor, with the opportunity of
seeing his wife and two small chil
Ixtuds Major Lufbcry
Captain Rickenbacker. who talkeC
about everybody but himself, paid
a high tribute to Major Kaoul Luf
bery. who had formerly been in
command of "Rick's" squadron, and
to whom he gave the credit for the
reputation which the 94th Squadron
acquired. A picture of the little
yard belonging to a French peasant,
i into which the body of the famous
flyer dropped when his plane was
sent down in flames, was shown or
' the screen, as well as the broker
picket fence which he struck in fall
: ing.
i He told a story of a new membe:
of his squadron who was anxious t<
! get a look at German territory and
begged Rickenbacker to take hin
' up. So one morning at 4 o'clock
• they started, well bundled up agains'
! the intense cold of the upper air.
! While in the clouds the famous act
i lost his companion, and when he re
turned to the airdrome several hours
'later, the young man met him
"Hello, eskimo," he said. "I got s<
■ cold I had to come back to thav
out: I'm afraid to laugh yet for feu*
i I'll crack: why. we were so high ut
I that I saw the sun rising for daj
' after to-morrow."
Violet on the Ground
He then referred to Lieutenant
i Frank Luke, the premier "balloor
strafer." whom he declared was :
violet when on the ground, but t
j regular firebrand in the air, driving
! everything and everybody out of hi
j path. "The day he was killed," saic
jf'aptain Rickenbacker, "he had gorn
| out alone on a still hunt for the
Roche. Returning a short time later
i lie dropped a note to one of his ow>
balloon observers, telling him tr
watch the German "sausages" op
posite. that he was going to get them
and wanted official confirmation o!
his victories. Sure enough, after i
few minutes, one of the balloors
went down in flames, then the th
other two in quick succession. W
ail waited for him to return, but h<"
never did. After the armistice wa c '
signed we got the news of his death
from some French peasants in terri
tory previously occupied by the Ger
mans. It seems he had been at
tacked by half a dozen enemy planes
two of whom he got before they
brought him down. Landing withir
their lines, he dived into a shell
hole and drew his automatic, kill
ing several German infantrymen whr
tried to capture him. Finally the>
turned a machine gun on him and
killed him."
Talks Impersonally
As he talked on and on. in an in
formal manner, one wondered if
perhaps he wouldn't describe some
of his own engagements, but with
the exception of one or two flight"
he talked impersonally. He did ten
of one "dog fight" in which be saw
a German plane pursued to earth by
a member of his own squadron, who
in turn was followed by another
German. So Rickenbacker "tagged
on to the procession" and of the four
that made up the column, each fir
ing at the plane in front of him,
all three but himself crashed.
Hun Shows Pictures
Among the pictures shown were
a number of aerial photographs
taken by a German flyer whom Rick
enbacker met in Cohlenz after the
armistice was signed. This flyer
heard "Rick." as he called him. was
in town and looked him up to show
him these photos that he and other
Germans had taken over the Amer
ican lines. They were taken thou
sands of feet in the air. but clearly
showed hangars and aeroplanes, bil
lets. trenches, roads, trees and shell
holes with unmistakable clearness.
They had even taken a picture of a
section of Paris just as a shell from i
the long-range gun was bursting on |
the bank of the Seine river, a pic
ture that must have proved of in
estimable value to the Germans in
ranging subsequent shots.
The language of the aviator was a
bit hard to understand at times, bu'
when he remembered too. Captain
Rickenbacker explained the meanine
of such words as "zoomed," "piqued "
"taxied" and other characteristic ex
pressions of the airman.
Asked as to the sporting qualities
of his opponents, he said he thought
they were about flftyv fifty. "Some
were hard-boiled eggs of course, but
I ran across a number of decent ones
who played the game and were dar
ing fighters."
Gives t'p Ocean Plights
Captain Rickenbacker returned
from the other side primarily with
the intention of making an attempt j
at the trans-Atlantic flight. He had
the support and backing of Generals |
Pershing and Liggett, and collect
ed all the necessary data, returning
via England in order to gather fur- j
ther information as to trade winds. |
etc. When he got back to America, j
however, he found little enthusiasm i
