Belg-lium, -with the aid of Switzerland, is already rebuilding the cities and houses destroyed by the Huns earlier in the war. A committee composed of Swiss men of science, arts and politics was formed in Berne, under the name of "Oeuvre Suisse" in Belgium, committee in aid of the victims of the war, which raised the first funds. In August, 11)16, a delegation of architects was sent to Belgium with tho mission of making' the work for the victims of the war widely known and of putting at their disposal the sums offered by eome of their generous compatriots. It entered into communication and came to an agreement with the following institutions: First The union of the towns and communes of Belgium or the special commission for temporary shelters and for reconstruction, recognized as a section of the committee for national aid and alimentation. This is the powerful organization which actually centralizes all the efforts tending to the reconstruction and embellishment of the urban localities. Second The committee for studying the reconstruction of the rural districts, the commission for the embellishment of agricultural homes and for watching over esthetics in the country. Iike the former in-situation, this latter is a branch of the National Committee for Aid and Alimentation, which personifies the national life in Belgium.

Special to The Courier-;' piirnnl. New York, Oct. 31. The army i.uuu.uw wonters which the Catholic Church has agreed to deliver to the united War Work Campaign when the jurne was launched is now ready to iaKe tne field. The force has gone tnrougn the training camp and Instruc nun scnooi period and is awaiting the orders of the United War Work Ca i'""n wummancier. Tins view was ox- presseu to-day by Harvey J.

Leadership in (he campaign, according to Mr. Hill, bus not been determined by denominational considerations. F. J. Lenahan, who is a prominent Pittsburgh manufacturer and Knight of Columbus, finds himself not only organizing among Catholic parishes but the accepted leader in a num ber of Frotfcstani ana Jewish parlsnes as well. In speaking of this situation in a city known to be predominately Presbyterian. Mr. Lenahan says: "Well, you see, we are not making this united drive on the basis of church creed:1. We are making it as American citizens and we are going through the campaign shoulder to shoulder." "Reports from the whole Centrnl West," says Mr. Hill, "show that States are accepting tneir quotas ot ou percent, in excess of their proportions of $170,-SW.OOO."

(Continued From First Pa?c.) Their statement in the present case has been negatived by the British report of the tihtins. which states the real character of the opposition with which they were contending in the opening days of the offensive. Kt'treat ISct'omes limit. Once the Austrian defensive zone was passed, however, the situation changed and the Autitrian retreat became a i-oul. It is reported that over prisoners have been takt.ii, jieaiiy 110,000 sine Wednesday. This shows the nature ot the break, a break comparable in every wav to that which the Italians suffered when their lines were broken at Tolmino. There can be no question, of course, that the morale of the Atis-trians in at a low ebb. that poor as the Austrian soldier has shown himself to be in every light since 1311. it is even poorer to-day. This is a natural cor.seiuenee of an indifferent military force seeing confusion, it not revolution in ius rear. But that Austria is fighting, is attempting to stop the advance there can be no uuestlon. The war may be over. Peace may be on its way. Austria may Imvp surrendered. Germany may bo about ready to surrender. Of these things we cannot speak positively in spito of rumors antl reports from "authoritative soure.a." Hut I still contend that there is nothing i-n the military theaters that beans all this out. Reference has boon recently made in this column of British losses 35.C00 a week. What the ''reach losses are wo have no data. The French have, however, been lighting most bitterly between tho Oii-re and the Serre and eastward to the Aisr.e at Rethel. They havo been contending with a stiff machln gun defense which has broken down only after tho hardest lighting. Much Work Still Remains. Our own losses have also been ex-tremelv heavv. It is not known just how far behind the published reports of our casualties are. But that they are not up-to-date :s positive. Thera has been no harder or more bitter fighting in the war than that in the Ar-goime and north of the Arffonnc. it has been going on peiisttntly and without lctun since the middle of September when the lirst blow was-struck at St. .Mihiel. In similar fighting .n the much less difllcult Soinme country, the British loss ran. on some days, well into the thousands. On the Flanders front, although attacking over but a. narrow front, the British had ...W killed in one month. It is ridiculous then to suppose that we are getting ore as lightlv an our casuality lints would indicate.' The Germans then inflictni-r a weeklv lofu on the Allies or clrsc to 70,000 men does not bear the aspects or a badlv defeated army. If then our war programme includes the defeat of the German arm v. the indications are that there still remains much to be done.

Main St. and DYERS (Incorporated ) Louisville, Ky. At Malines, at the corner of the two streets, Des Pierres et De l'Etuve, a house with the signboard, "In de Pekton," has been reconstructed, with a wooden gable, a remarkable specimen of the Inst buildings of this kind in Belgium. At La Dyle, this old town of beautiful chimes, the "Oeuvre Suisse" is also rebuilding a historical patrimonial house. In perfect agreement with the Land en Tuinbouwcomiteit der Provlncie Antwrepen," an important organization for rural reconstructions and embellishment of the agricultural life of the province of Antwerp, also a branch of the commission for temporary shelters and of the National Conwnittee of Alimentation, the "Oeuvre Suisse" has constructed a certain number of farms, "some of small, others of greater importance at Bornhem, Marlekcrke, Emblehem, Konings-hoyckt, as well as the first home for a disabled soldier. All these are so many examples of good reconstruction, combining the improvement of agricultural style with the estheti-cal traditions of local architecture. It is in the province of Brabant, at Kppeghem. that the first house for a victim of the war was constructed with the financial aid of "Oeuvre Suisse." The plans for this house, a baker's establishment, have been carefully studied by a young Belgian architect, with the assistance of an agricultural expert of the State, and submitted for approval to the provincial Consulting Committee, dele-wated by the Union of Belgian Towns and Communes. Other farms are being built at Humbeek, Bueken, .Sappelle-au-Bois and Haekendover, under the same conditions-and with the same guarantees. itors. That evening our poor, weary, footsore peasants did not have their soup, rye bread, kyvase and other things we had prepared for them. The (Bolshevik sat down anu devoured everything. Then all went away, some saying they would return next morning to j confiscate everything. Next morning they left the town, taking with them j the son of a priest. They killed him in the forest." The other day I accompanied a few re-enforcements some miles further up the river to Novjenskala, where we had to land through shallows on horseback. Primitive little cannons were brought in. With one piece there our small force was keeping at bay some hundreds of Bolsheviki who had Intrenched themselves. L.ess than two miles away, engaged with busy Mails or open air I threshing floors, were families of villagers whose faces were serious as they garnered their harvest of rye and other grain. Small wonder if some could .hardly concede faltering allegiance to j the Allies who had come to their aid. i Before they retired the Bolsheviki had i forced some of the finest men of Novjenskala to join them, when it came about that at night, under cover of darkness, several obedient wives slipped out to carry food to their husbands in the enemy lines, and. alas, nervous Bolshevik sentries. fearful Jest the snapping of twigs meant the approach of all ide patrols, tired in a panic, killing 'three of these brave, faithful women.

Selnoeder with Special to The Courier-Journil. Washing-ton , Oct. 31. Maj. Gen. William L. Kenly, director of military aeronautics, has made public an interesting document describing the leat of Oapt. R. W. Schioeder. Tho Captain recently set a new world's rpcord for altitude flying when he ascended 28,900 feet above sea level from the Wilbur Wright aviation field at Dayton, O. The record has been confirmed by the War Department. In the report Capt. Schroe'ier says: "In order to take an airplane to a higher altitude than any other pilot Sn the world I found taat it Wftild require more than one or two attempts. I made three attempts. The first one took me to 24,000 feet, the second to 27,000 feet and the last one to 28,900 feet, hut now I feel certain that I can get to 30,001' feet. "The cold thin air is one's greatest adversary. First of all .ne must make a study of the performances of his motor at these high altitudes. 1 took off at 1:45 p. ni. Wednesday, September 18, and made a steady circular climb, passing through c-louda at 8,000 feet, 12,000 feet and 16,00ti feet. 4 Gosirles .tre Frosted. "At 20,000 feet, while still climbing in large circles, my goggles became frosted, making it very difficult for me to watch my instruments. When I reached 25,000 feet 1 noticed the sun growing very dim, I could hardly hear my motor and I felt very hungry. The trend of my thought was that it must be setting late, that evening must be coming on, but I was still climbing, so thought I might as vell stick to it a little longer, for I itnew I could reach my ceiHnh" pretty soon; that I should go down, and even though it were dark I could land all right, for I had made night landings many times before. So I went to talking to myself, and this I felt was a good sign to begin taking oxygen, and i Old. "I was then over 25.000 feet, and as soon as I started to inhaie the oxygen the sun grew bright again, my motor began to exhaust so loud that it seemed something must be wrong with it. I was no longer hungry. The day seemed to be a most beautimful one. I felt like singing with sheer, joy as I gazed about through the small portion of my goggles which had no frost, due to a drop of oil which had splashed on them from the motor. Mercury 32 Degrees Below. "1 kept at it until my oxygen gave out and at that point I noticed my aneroid indicated very nearly 29,000 degrees below zero, Centigrade, and the revolutions per minute had dropped from l.nUD to L.ibO. This is considered very good. F.ut the lack of oxygen was affecting me. 1 was beginning to get cross, and I could not understand why I was only 29,000 feet up after climbing for so long. I remember that the horizon seemed be very much out of place, but I felt that I was Hying correctly and that I was right and the horizon was wrong. "About this time the motor quit. I was out of gasoline, so I descended in a large spiral: When I descended to about 20,000 feet I began to fe.el much better and realized that the lack of oxygen had affected me. I passed down through the clouds at 1 0,000 feet, and, as I remember, it was snowing from these clouds upon the next layer, some 4,000 feet below. I am no: positive of this, as I may have been affected by the lack of cxvgen. I noticed as I descended that the air seemed to be very thick and -stuffy, but very nice and warm. I did not see the ground from the time I went tip through the clouds above Dayton until 1 came down through them again at 4,000 feet above Canton, over 200 miles from where I started. Lands O. K. At 7j;ist. "I was lost beyond a doubt, with a dead engine over very rough country. I landed O. K. and broke the tip of my propeller, which was standing vertical when I rolled into a depression in the ground. However, I did not nose over or do any other damage to the plane or myself. I flew back to Dayton with a new liropeller." The Signal Corps is maiing it R practice to supply aviators who have to go to great altitudes with thanks of oxvgen such as the one Cap. Schroeder used in his record-breaking flight. It has been announced that every pilot in the American army who gees aloft over the German lines in combat or bombing planes will carry-United States-made oxyge.-i tanks with sufficient air for from six to eisrht hours' breathing. Pilots and observers in reeonnoissanco planes on photographic wor-K also win carry them on clear days when such work is carried on at 15,000 feet or higher. Anti-aircraft guns force aviators to high altitudes. O.xyfren Supply Decreases. The normal atmosphere near the surface of the earth contains about 21 per cent, of oxygen and 7'J per cent of nitrogen. At 19,000 feet the density of the air has so diminished that each cubic foot contains only half the amount of oxysen found at sea level. The few pilots able to continue for any length of time beyond 10.-000 or 12,000 feet have a ot "lack of air" and involuntarily open their mouths to get more air.

Independently of gifts for the victims, the "Oeuvre Suisse," by its linancial aid, helps the above mentioned institutions Oy intervening for the reconstruction of ruined buildings, by offering premiums for beauty and hygiene, and by loans, to be repaid in part by the victims of the war. By making these loans repayable to permanent organizations the "Oeuvre Suisse" perpetuates its beneficent influence in Belgium, because these organizations will thus' have permanent funds for continuing the work of the embellishment of the country. In offering these premiums and conceding these loans care is taken to distribute them to the victims according to their needs. The "Oeuvre Suisse." in perfect agreement with the above Belgian institutions, prepares the road for similar work of other countries which also have the intention of lending their aid to these reconstructions. At louvain three houses have been built, one of which is situated on the old market place, facing the entrance of the University library, where it will help to reconstitute the secular frame, of the university and college buildings.

It seems that Bolshevik! from without arrived to stimulate some Bolsheviki rising from within. For a while the situation had looked suflicJent-ly grave, but the menace passed won-drotisly away. The incoming Bolsheviki did not wait for force to come to help their outgoing. Even in matters of pillage and murder they seem to have been strangely below their traditions.

Slowly we have traveled some 200 miles from Arc-hansel to Beresneski, where the majestic North Dvina is swollen by its noble tributary, the Vaga. Thirty miles further up the river we have taken Seletskoe after a sharp scrap with the Bolshevik i. who, before retreating, mined the river and blocked the fairway with sunken barges. Against these obstacles our craft must go southward soon or be frozen in for the winter. Meanwhile a small force of ours has penetrated sixty miles up the Vaga in the direction of distant Vologda and Fetrograd. Eastward of the line Shen-kursk is about half way from Archangel to Vologda. This is a dialogue I heard when he left the north Dvina for the perilous trip to the Vaga: "Shenkursk, I am going there, see?" "Well?" "Will you come?" "We went. We were soon on a commodious steamboat with a Mississippi deckhouse. Presently we were steaming in a strong current of sherry-colo:ed water, severat hundred yards wide, which ran down northward between shores of clean sand. Like the more impressive mile-wide river from which we had emerged the great North Dvina the Vaga has verdant low banks, sloping for the most part into goodly stretches of farm land plowed or planted. Here are palisaded pastures where cows and horses graze. Wf. never went manv minutes without seelntr on one bank or the other some village of substantial wooden houses.
