Operate Machines Ten Days After They Enter Munitions Factories. Washington.—Within 10 days from the time they enter the factories Ens- I IB1I women master single-process shell-making machines and are able to render efficient aervlce', according to Information which has reached the Department of Labor from England. They are paid from $10 to $16 a week whore the time basis is in effect, and from $7.60 to $20 a week by piecework. Some of tho factories run three shifts, and hours are changed each week. The women say that they do not mind ulehj: work in the least, although some of them are engaged in heavy manual labor. Piecework systems have been introduced in many places as a means of speeding up production. Woincu workers, it Is said, take much more pains than the' men to Incruaso their incomes when they are working on that basis, for they operate their machines at (op speed und turn out enormous quantities of work. Men are more disposed to limit their production to a Itguro approximating that of thoir companions, but women do not pay much attention to what the other women arc doing.

J American Aviation Center, Isso- doun, France.—t Correspondence of The Associated Press.)—This American flying camp IB the largest In France and is said to be greater than any other In the world. A Dying field of iifi square miles, the area of an American county, with nine separate flying fields on which American aviators advance to the singe of flight combatants, and airplanes—Liberties, Nieuporta, Capro- nls and all the others with officers, Instructors and newly equipped aviators swelling our squadrons each month—these were some of the main features of this vast aviation ground. As the Associated Press correspondent entered one of the fields a big gray machine rose from a nearby field with a loud droning noise. "There goes a liberty airplane,' said one of the officers. It was with keenest interest and growing enthusiasm by those who will put It to tho supreme test on the fighting front. Only one opinion wo£_heard among these men, that it was the biggest and fastest machine of them all. It was doing wonders In quick ascent, and besides straighl-away flight it had been put through all the Intricacies of acrobatic flight and had been pronounced equal to the whole range. Croups of aviators were lined up as ns we arrived, preparatory to taking tho air.—They were lithe, stocky young men, like two football elevens about to take the field. The flying grounds stretched for miles—nine fields of four squarn miles each—all cleah-cut stubMeflelds on which the machines could light without shock. Above them circled counUess planes, singly and In squadrons drawn out like veilA geese, looping and diving and In nil the evolutions of flight, with groups ofNaerobatlc planes over to the right making headlong spirals, wing-slips and reversoments. City of Barracks. In the foreground rose a city of barracks, one-story pine shacks 100 Teet long, not very highly ornamental hut very practical. Fully a thousand of those barracks had risen on this level plain to house the army of flying men on the way to the fighting line. "We went from field to field to note each stage in the development of combat aviators. Generally speaking, it was explained, there are three distinct branches of this aviation for warfare: Chase and combat work In which most of the fighting occurs, bombardment of enemy forces, camps and towns, and scouting or reconnaissance work for^ purposes of observation of enemy activities. It is for combat and bombardment that the training is done here, and of those going forward monthly about four-fifths are combatants ami one-fifth bombardment pilots. "These are the 'grasshoppers,'" said the captain as we came to field No. 1, where the Initial ground work and theory of flight begins. The grasshoppers were diminutive machines with jyst enough horsepower lo jump'over" the ground, and occ.-e; slonally rise ten feet. The men call Iheni taxis and roulers. They were skipping about singly and in squads. They were having a race across the plain, and one taking a dive burled Its nose In the ground. Thin was the circus part of flying, at the start, but there was plenty of very practical wcrk beside, with motor instruction, gunnery, trap-shooting, rifle range nnd machine-gun firing. Small dummy enemy airplanes dotted the field aa targets, and the bounding grasshoppers took their shots and were rated by the watching Instructors. On the second field the aviators had left their grasshoppers and wore In a double-control machine accompanied by an instructor. They were getting the "feel" of the machine in actual flight, and if the rudder was not manipulated deftly tho instructor was thero to make tho correction. And "it was necessary hero to learn how to come down as well as to go up, and to come down at a definite point. Small numbered flags marked the landing- point of each machine, and tho descent must bo made close up to the flag. The captain of field No. 3 was about to step into the "Flying Dragon," one of the most curious machines of the fleet, for besides 'being a very fleet 15-meter car, it was famous for its dragon body, with flaming scales nnd tentacles and great red eyes. Here on this field the aviators entered Bingle-control machines, without an Instructor, and for the first time took their own risks. On field 4 it began to develop whether the aviator could qualify as a combatant airman, or for bombardment or scout observation, lie was now in a fast machine with a wing surface of 18 meters and was beginning to make dips nnd high air ma' ueuvering. lie was being accustomed to all types of machines. Thero waH a fleet of one of these strange types drawn across tho plain. Their chief novelty was ilihaving ball bearings on all their mechanism, giving a hair-trigger response to the slightest touch. , Delicacy of Mechanism. "if you sneeze, you loop tho loop," was tho way tho officer explained the delicacy of this mechanism. Progress is rapid now that it is evident what a flyer can do. Ho enters a very fast machine at No. 5. with" 16- meter wings capable of making 10 milt's an hour. Some of tho men drop out of tho training at this point, as it has become evident that they lack the deftness or get faint at the height or the beat of the motor. The rest go on to ficlil No, 6 whonce they begin pursuit work and same of the early Btages of acrobatic-Aose divers and slops. "Thero Is nothing freakish about these acrobatics," said the officer, "for they aro one of tbo most essential parts of combat aviation. To be a chase and pursuit pilot ono must 'be uble to oul-uiauouver the enemy aviator; to make quick turns under fire and get above your adversary or on his trail. Ono or the other will be out-maneuvered, and the fastest man wins the came. Tho enemy la very skllirul at acrobatics, and he must be •beaten at his own game.", Lieutenant Quefttin ROOBOYOU was in command or field JJp. T while ho w oa here, and the car of the lato officer stood in tho hangar with ti group of flyers about It paying tribute to the splendid qualities and daring ot their late leader. His good humor was.re called 'by the name he had given his car, "Doc Yak," and the doctor with his flowing whiskers was painted In flaming colors on the side of the car, This Is the Held on which formation flying 1 Is begun, in squadrons up to IS machines but usually with five. The squadron .flies In V'-shapc, with the commander at tho apex of tho V, carrying a streamer wliich signals the commands, A fleet of 1G machines was starting as wo passed, and another had just come after two hours In the air, ending with a figure eight, a difficult evolution executed by "cross- Ins 'the controls" so that the rudder serves as the elevator and the elevator serves as rudder. At night this field is lighted by powerful' searchlights, end night flying goes on from 10 o'clock until daylight. Scores of Machines In Air. On tho combat and acrobatic fields, Nos. S and 9, scores of machines were in She air going through their fighting evolutions dipping and looping. The combat planes carried camera guns, a novel device combining n dummy machine gutt and a photographic camera. It looks like a gun, but ns the trigger is pulled, the camera lakes a picture of the target, showing just what would have been hit if a shot instead of a lense had blazed ahead. It was over the acrobatic field that the real wonders were going on, In the vertical virage, spirals and wing slips. Spectacular as these seemed to be, each had its use in the fighting game. The "vlrillo" Is that dizzy i head-first tumble, and the chief tiling is not to do it but to undo it and come out of it. It has Its uses too in deceiving nn enemy Into the belief that the aviator has been hit and 1 Is tumbling, then as the enemy is off guard, attacking him suddenly as the aviator comes out of his headlong" dive. One of the fly. era made four virtues as we watched. "It is dangerous only when near the ground," said the escort. "High in the air there is comparatively no danger for thero is plenty of time to set your levers so that you are sure to come out of the virille." Others were doing tho spiral, another form of head-first dive except thnt tho car is always under control whereas in the virille the control is lost until the aviators succeeds in emerging from his fall. Often the machines seemed to stop suddenly, turn over and then glide away in the opposite direction right side up. One of the best maneuvers for escape from a dangerous fight Is the vertical wing-slip, an is the fastest means of losing altitude and getting below an unequal combat. When an acrobatic maneuver mlsws or Is badly done It Is a "pancake" qr a "barrel.'' There lsasmnch lingo to tho aviation field as th'ero is to the. baseball diamond. Leaving the Held we passed a crippled aviator limping on crutches. "Ho has had 21 crashes," said the officer "which is about the record. But be goes back every time and he's eager now to get iu his machine again. And that Is the spirit of every man here, to be ready for combat and to beat the Bocbe."

Catarrh is a conditloh of the blood and can not be cured l>y local applications of sprays and douches; this has boen proven by tho thousands who have vainly resorted to this method ot treatment. Catarrh should not be neglected or experimented with. The wrong treatment is valuable time lost, during which tho dlseaso Is getting a firmer hold Upon its victim, and making it more difficult for oven the' proper treatment to accomplish results. . Though Catarrh mates its first appearance in the nostrils, throat and air passagea, the disease becomes moto and more Aggravated nnd finally reaches down into tho lungs, and everyone recognizes tho alarming condition 1 that results when the lurifts are affected. Thus catarrh may be the forerunner ot that most dreaded and hopeless of nil diseases, consumption. No local treatment affords permanent relief. Experience has taught that S. S. S. Is the one remedy which attacks the disease at its source, the blood, and produces satisfactory results In even tho worst eases. Catarrh sufferers are urged to give S. S. S. a thorough trial.
