He sulked and refused to talk. SIXTKKN VICTIMS. Mendkopf Is credited with sixteen victims, including an American. He Is one of only six German aviators who wear the cross of merit.

One of the most exciting tasks to which airmen are assigned Is what Is known as "desultory bombing" over one spot for an hour or more. Tho object Is to distract the attention of the anti-aircraft defenders of a given dtHtrlct, and a machine carrying a dor.en or more bombs Is employed for the work. At (list the airmen, a pilot and an observer, approach their target cautiously. With engines throttled down, the rrnft Klldeg nearer and nearer. Below nil Is quiet. No German searchlights are sweeping the sky. Whan the attackers are almost over their objective a rocket rises toward mem and bursts Inlo a cluster of red stars. The machine has been discovered. At once six or seven searchlights throw their beams aloft. The pilot looks at hla watch; It Is time to begin his desultory bombing. He flies steadily on, although a barrage of bursting shells lies now In front of him. The observer looks through the wires of his bomb-sight to the ground below. At the proper Instant he thrusts his lever forward and release two homhs. A few seconds later he gees the flash of their explosions, and above the crackling barrage, he can hear two dull roara. He signal to the pilot and the machine turns and sweeps uway from the fiery ring of shells and searchlights. A few miles away the airplane file to and fro at top speed. The puzzled searchlights vainly feel the sky In all directions and then, one by one, are switched off. Then Ihe pilot quickly moves again toward the target. Another bomb is dropped As It explodes the searchlights reap pear and tho barrage la renewed while through the thickly grouped shell bursts are threaded the chains of green flaming globes, so much used by the Oermnns. Again the machine files awny and this time, to bewilder still more the soldiers below, the observer fires a white verery light which slowly drifts below and fades out. All the searchlights follow It until It dies. Bepeatedly the airmen return to tho attack. Bombs are dropped at Intervals until the end of the hour when the machine doparts, flickering fires and clouds of smoke telling of the havoc wrought by the bomb. ITALIANS REPULSE HUNS.
