The Folly of Despair.
Less than nine months ago eighteen
officers of the Royal flying cerps,
which had been training In Canada,
left for England on the Meganlc.
If any of them was over twenty-five
years of age, he had successfully con
cealed the fact, because they don't ac
cept older men for the R. F. C.
Nine of the squadron were British
subjects; the other nine were Ameri
cans, who, tired of waiting for their
own country to take her place with
the allies, had Joined the British colors
In Canada. I was one of the latter.
We were going to England to earn
our "wings"—a qualification which
must be won before a member of the
K. F. C. Is allowed to hunt the Huns
on the western front
This was In May, 1017.
By August 1, most of us were full
fledged pilots, actively engaged at vari
ous parts of the line in dally conflict
with the enemy.
By December 18, every man Jack of
us who had met tbe enemy in France,
with one exception, had appeared on
the casualty list The exception was
H. K. Boysen, an American, who at
last report was fighting on the Italian
front still unscathed. Whether his
good fortune has stood him up to this
time I don't know, but If it has I would
be very much surprised.
Of the others, five were killed In ac
tion—three Americans, one Canadian,
and one Englishman. Three more were
in all probability killed In action al
though officially they are listed merely
as "missing." One of these was an
American, one a Canadian, and thf
third n Scotchman. Three more, twt
of them Americans, were seriousl)
wounded. Another, a Canadian, Is a
prisoner In Oermdny. I know nottiinf
of the others.

very much the worse for wear after all
I've been through, and, as I write these
words not eight months have passed
since my seventeen comrades and I
sailed from Canada on the Meganlc.
Can It be possible that I was spared
to convey a message of hope to others
who are destined for similar trials? I
am afraid there will be many of them.
Tears ago I heard of the epitaph
which Is said to have been found on a
child's grave: '
"If I was so soon to be done for
What, O Lord, was I ever bepun for?"
The way It has come to me since I
returned from Europe Is:

At any rate, If this record of my ad

It would be very far from the mark
to imagine that the optimism which I
am preaching now so glibly sustained

contrary, I am free to confess that I
frequently gave way to despair and
often, for hours at a time, felt so de

didn't care what happened to me. In

would happen to put an end to my
But despite all my despondency and
hopelessness, the worst never hap

my salvntl/.n must have been designed
to show the way to other*.
I Became a Fighting Scout.
I started flying In Chicago In 1912. I
was then eighteen years old, but I had
had a hankering for the air ever since
I can remember.
As a youngster I followed the ex
ploits of the Wrights with the greatest
Interest, although I must confess I
sometimes hoped that they wouldn't
really conquer the air until I had had

whacks than I was looking for later
Needless to say, my parents were
very ranch opposed to my risking my
life at what was undoubtedly at fftat
time one of the most hazardous "pas

every time I had a smashup or some
other mishap I was ordered never to go
near an aviation field again.

machine, which we flew in various
parts of the state.
In the early" part of 1010, when trou
ble was brewing In Mexico, I joined the
American flying corps. I was sent to
San Diego, where the army flying
school is located, and spent About eight
months there, but as I was anxious to
get Into active service and there didn't
seem much chance of America ever
getting Into the war, I resigned and,
crossing over to Canada, joined the
Royal Flying corps at Victoria, B. O.
I was sent to Camp Borden, Toronto,
first to receive instruction and later to
Instruct. While a cadet I made the
first loop ever made by a cadet In Can
ada, and after I had performed the
stunt I half expected to be kicked out
of the service for It Apparently, how
ever, they considered the source and
let It go at that Later on I hud tile

In May, 1017, I and seventeen other
Canadian fliers left for England on the
Meganlc, where we were to qualify
for, service In France.
Our squadron consisted of nine
Americans, C. C. Iloblnson, H. A. Mil
ler, F. 8. McClurg, A. A. Allen, 8. B.
Garnet, H. K. Boysen, H. A. Smeeton
and A. A. Taylor, and myself, and nine

Within a few weeks after our ar
rival In England all of us had won our
"wings"—the Insignia worn on the

We were all sent to a place In
France known as the Tool Pilots Mess.

One morning an order came In for
a scout pilot and one of my friends
was assigned. I can tell you the rest
of us were as envious of him ns If It
were the last chance any of us were
ever going to have to get to the front.
As It was, however, hardly more than
three hours had elapsed before an
other wire was received at the mess
and I was ordered to follow my
friend. I afterward learned that as
soon as he arrived at the squadron he
prevailed upon the commanding offi
cer of the squadron to wire for me.
At the Pool Pilots' Mess It was the
custom of the officers to wear "shorts"
—breeches that are about eight Inches
long, like the boy scouts weur, leav
ing a space of about eight Inches of
open country between the top of the
puttees and the end of the shorts. The
Australians wore them In Ralonlkl and
at the Dardanelles.
When the order came In for me, 1
had these "shorts" on, aud I didn't
have time to change Into other clothes.
Indeed, I was in such a sweat to get
to the front that If I had been In my
pajamas I think I would have gone
that way. As It was, it was raining
and I threw an overcoat over me,
jumped into the machine, and we made
record time to the airdrome to which
I bad been ordered to report.
As I alighted from the automobile
my overcoat blew open and displayed
my manly form attired In "shorts" In
stead of In the regulation flying
breeches, and the sight aroused con
siderable commotion In camp.
"Must be a Yankee 1" 1 overheard
one officer say to another as I ap
proached. "No one but a Yankee would
have the cheek to show up that way,
you know I"
But they laughed good-naturedly as
I came up to them, and welcomed me
to the squadron, and I was soon very
much at home.
My squadron was one of four sta
tioned at an airdrome about eighteen
miles back of the Ypres line. There
were 18 pilots In our squadron, which
was a scout squadron, scout machines
carrying but one man.
A scout, sometimes called a fighting
scout, has no bomb dropping or recon

to anyone who Is hankering for excite

but you are swept by machine-gun fire
.from below. I have seen some of our
machines come back from this work
sometimes so riddled with bullets that
I wondered how they ever held to
gether. Before we started out on one
of these jobs, we were mighty careful
to see that our motors were In perfect
condition, because they told us the
"war bread was bad In Germany."
One morning, shortly after I joined
the squadron, three of us started over
the line of our own accord. We soon
observed four enemy macMnes, two
seaters, coming toward us. This type
of machine Is used by the Huns for
artillery work nnd bomb dropping, ami
we knew they were on mischief bent.
Each machine had a machine gun In
front, worked by the pilot, and the ob
server also hnd a gun with which he
could spray all around.
When we first noticed the Huns, our
machines were about six miles back
ef the German lines and we were lying
high up In the sky, keeping the Sun
behind us, so that the enemy could not

and one another. AM I saw him crash

Brut hostile aircraft. ¥ie of my com
rade* was equally successful, but the
other two German machine* got away.
We chased them track until things got
too hot for us by reason of the api»car
ance of other German machines, and
then we called It a day.
This experience whetted my appetite
for more of the same kind, and I did
not have long to wait.
It mojr he well to explain here Just
what b spinning nose henl I*. A few
yearn ago the spinning none (live KM
considered one of lIM Mt dangerous
thing* a pilot could attempt, and
many men were killed getting Into this

This spinning nose dive has been
frequently used In "stuut" flying in
recent years, but Is now put to prac

from hostile machines, for when a

In the spin.
Tills Is all right, when a man Is

good way of getting down Into a

looks exactly like a spin thut Is made
by a machine actually being shot
down, so one never knows whether It

either rights his machine and coines

Another dive similar to this one Is
known as Just the plain dive. As
sume, for Instance, that a pilot flying
at a height of several thousand feet
Is shot, loses control of Ills machine,
and the nose of the plane starts down
with the motor full on. He Is going
at a tremendous speed and In many
Instances is going so straight and
awlftly that the speed Is 100 great for
the machine, because It was never
constructed to withstand the enor

wings, and they consequently crumple
If, too, In fin attempt to straighten
the machine, the elevators should be

frylug to bring a machine out of a
dive, the strain Is again too great on
the wings, and there Is the same dis
astrous result Oftentimes, when the
patrol tank Is punctured by a tracer
bullet from another machine In the
air, the plane that Is hit catches on
Are and either gets Into a spin or a
straight dive and heads f»r the earth,
hundreds of miles an hour, a mass of

In the sky.
The spinning noae dive Is used to
grenler advantage by the Herman*
than by our own pilots fur tbe reason
that when a fight gel* too hot for the

German lines, for you would In all
