An Aerodrome in Southeastern Eng-
land, Oct. 1.-Two principal factors in
eliminating the midnight Zeppelin
raids on London and other British
cities were the perfection of night fly-
ing by British airplane pilots and the
multiplication of small airplane sta-
tions. From these stations powerful
air craft could be sent up like hornets
to cover every possible avenue of ap-
proacht whenever the Zeppelin fleet at-
tempted invasion. Probably the full
story of the elaborate and pains-tak-
ing steps by which the Zeppelin men-
ace was overcome, will not be fully
told until after the war. It is 1ow
known, however, that every airplane
pilot in the British army and navy is
required to spend a certain number of
hours of his course of training in night
flying in the most varied conditions.
A visit to one of these small air-
plane outpost stations, housing only
two machines, on a night when a raid-
er was sighted off the coast and there
was "a bit of work" to be done, showed
how they guarded England against
night attack. At nightfall, the two
airplanes were drawn from their hang-
ars and rolled out ready to be called
to work, the work which involves such
a strain as has never before been en-
dured by man or wood or iron. Both
machines were fully equipped with
machine guns, already loaded, aerial
torpedoes and flares for landing pur-
poses. The engines were tuned to
perfection.
Silence Broken by Telephone Bell
In a tiny office adjoining the hangar
sat the officer in charge of the sta-
tion. Within reach of his right hand
was the telephone, and on the desk in
front of him a litter of books and pa-
pers dealing with the personnel of the
two airplanes. It was just after mid-
night when the silence was at last'
broken by the sharp telephone bell.
If the message is an order from head-
quarters, the first words must be the
authorized password for the night as
a guarantee of its authenticity. The
officer took off the receiver and list-
ened.
"'For American' is the word. Zep-
pelins sighted over North Sea travel-1
ing north, 50 miles from the coast.
Good night." The officer hung up the
receiver and hurried out along behind
the hangars to the tent."Wake up, you
sleepy devils," he said. "Zepps out
skylarking." The two pilots who were
next in turnrose and quickly dressed.
Five minutes later they were out be-
side their machines drinking a steam-
ing can of hot coffee. They climbed in,
the engines sputtered and roared, the
whole frame work quivered under the
strain of the curbed power. Released,
they moved, gathered up speed, rose
quickly off the ground and disap-
peared into the darkness of the night.
Flyers Climb Until Cold Is Intense
From below, all that could be seen
was the stars blotted from sight, first
one then another, as the airplanes
circled around gaining their height.
They turned eastward and soared out
toward the sea, past the town beneath
the cliffs, while far below passed a
streak of red, the midnight train for
London. Still higher they climbed,
until the cold became intense, criss-
crossing back and forth over their
allotted "beat," always on the lookout
for the enemy.
No sign of the raiders was to be
seen, but the two policemen of the sky
remained aloft until petrol and oil be-
gan to get low in their. gauges. They
then turned homeward and glided.
quietly to earth. The landing was ef-
fected after just two hours aloft.
News Letter to Add Illustrations
More illustrations will be used in the
University news letter during the com-

ing year.
The letter published by Prof. John
R. Brumm of the rhetoric faculty each
week reaches more than 250 newspa-
pers in Michigan and is the official
publicity agent of the University.
Special inquiries will also be fea-
tured in the letter in the coming sea-
son.

sun,
When yellow-robbed morning is due;
Blue are the curtains that evening
~has spun,
The slumbers of Phoebus to woo;
Blue are the blossoms to memory

And blue is the sapphire that gleams
like a tear;
Hail! Hail to the ribbons that na-
ture has spun,
Hurrah for the ellow and Blue.
3.
Htere's to the college whose colors we
wear,
And here's to the hearts that are
,true,

hair,
And eyed that are brimming with
blue;
Garlands of blue-bells and maize in-
ter-twine,
And hearts that are true and voices
combine;
Hail! Hail to the college whose colors
we wear,
Hurrah for the Yellow and Blue.

5,000 PLANTS MAKE CITY
MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN EVER
Ann Arbor's Civic association has
with 55,000 plants made this city more
beautiful in the last three years than

ever before. Not only have shrubs
and plants been sold at cost to citi-
zens, but expert direction as to ground
planning has been furnished without
charge by Ray E. Basset, city forester.
Student groups as well as private
residents have used this method of
getting well planned grounds.
For the coming reason the associa-
tion will turn its attention to national
defense and food conservation with
special reference to the coal situation.
Cincinnati has barred some of the
German text-books from the public
schools.
Fountain pens, all the best makes,
