Paris Morning News (Newspaper) - October 2, 1921, Paris, Texas The Paris eighteen pages today. News established 1869. Paris Texas sunday october 2, 192. Member Oci Tell in re a. Number 71. Row in air service the Cloud on their horizon reprint and through Courtesy of the fort Worth Sta Telegram concerns defences Mitchell has been contending for efficiency in and is about ready to admit that he is Defeated. By Herbert Corey Washington oct. 1.�?briga Dler general William s. Mitchell is about ready to quit. To is today the acting chief of the air service for major general c. T. Menoher has asked to be relieved. Mitchell has done More to make the United states air service tick than any other Man it it. He has fought for More planes and 1 Otter ones. It is due to his challenges that the bombing experiments were recently held off the Virginia capes. He has repeatedly declared than a battleship Fleet cannot live under bombardment from a proper Force of planes. If he leaves the service it is because he believes it is going to seed. The flying men in the army and Navy Are All that can be asked in spirit and skill and courage. Hut they feel they Are hammering away at a Wall of fog in their Effort to create an Arm on which they sincerely believe the National safety May depend. Mitchell and others believe today that what further immediate Progress May be made in flying j will be made by commercial companies. They fear the military branches have ceased to Lead if Mitchell leaves the service it will be to enter the commercial Field. It is not impossible others will leave with him. Mitchell an enthusiast Mitchell is a flying Man who commanded the largest fore of flyers Ever assembled in France during the attack on st. Mihiel. He is an enthusiast. He cares just about As much for official dignity a sips Gay. Weeks has shown himself thoroughly alive to the needs of the air service but likewise sympathetic t othe unhappy position of a major general who like Menoher had As vigorous an assistant As Mitchell. Confidential a it in it it gets out maybe the result of the former weeks Menoher Mitchell Confer ence accounts for the fact that Menoher did not submit Mitchell s a a confidential report to the Secretary of War. Some one knew about it confidential or no for on sept. Fat representative Curry referred to it on the floor of the House and Vised his fellow members to get posted on air affairs when it a made Public. No one in the Navy department seems to have known anything about the Mitchell report although the blessed hide had been taken off the advocates of big slow ships in it. There was an apparent intent to smother the report. Maybe it is More fair to say there is no evidence tha there was any intent to publish it. Thyn it was published. Now every one wants to know How it got out. It Isnit the truth but the leak tha seems to worry Oft ii Ial Washington. If you want to be Fine respectable Salt bearded old gentlemen show How thoroughly Peppy they Are visit the Navy department and listen to the admirals. If it keeps up Long enough the admirals will be listed As one of the attractions of being Washington Tours. Hating hours Sot vex it morning and evening hating hours have teen set aside so go sheriff resisted by the Kun Kluvers nine men founded in l ight at Lorena when Sli Riff attempted to i Ake american f lag f rom a masked parader. I a w v a it a Chanan Imi were wounded when Jho sheriff duties attempted the t to Cross Bear i the s i Riff precedents traditions and intellectual Deai lines As a Cannibal does for the holy roman Empire. He has been shaking the it dry Bones in the War and Navy departments until the visitor to either breathes tract Cully nothing but dust. He recently threw his controversial hat into the ring again and his controversial hat weighs about As much As the Liberty Bell and always Falls on a few toes. So Mitchell is in trouble. And he is about disgusted enough to quit. Mitchell engineered the bombing test recently held off the Virginia capes in which several sex German vessels were sunk before the bombing test most naval officers except the naval fliers and most army officers except the army fliers said that poor Mitchell was hearing the pretty Chimes every time he Shook his head. They said that flying machine is were perpetually n. G. Against Large hard battleships and that even if they could find ships at sea they could do them no harm even if they could hit them. But the fliers hit and Sank every target offered. Joint boat to d the joint army and Navy Board of which general Pershing was the chief made what was considered by most a very favourable report. There were traces of conservatism hanging about it it is True. Broadly speaking however the joint Board admitted that no warship As at present constructed can resist attack from the air by heavyweight bombers and advised immediate Progress in the creation of a really effective air Force. But that was not enough for Mitchell. He began to shoot fast and Low. In a confidential report rendered to general c. T. Menoher then in command of the air Force although not a flying Man Mitchell said among other things a that aircraft can operate under conditions that would Render sea Craft helpless. A that aircraft can protect the entire coast. A that the present coast artillery Force has Cost 11,870,000,000ft and that is about All the Good it is. Lack of Liason a that our National defense system is marked by a masterly Lack of he is not being quoted verbatim. The sentences used above however Are accurate presentations of his Case. General Menoher received this confident Ila report and retired to his closet with it. He seems not even to have taken secret iry of War weeks into Iii Confidence. The reason May perhaps be that the last time Mitchell burst out of the Cave of silence and said a lot of things which were unpleasant sue has tha the flying service was Beig ruined by the lives of flying men sacrificed because the service was being run by officers who did All their flying in swivel chairs or something of that sort Menoher undertook to reprimand Mitchell won t Sam a softly a you must speak softly a said Menoher in effect. Mitchell would not speak softly. Menoher asked the Secretary War to remove Mitchell from his individuals who Are libellous and unknown say that when the admirals have gone As far As their blood pressures permit the one Way in which they can be calmed Down is to say that bless Al word Librers Sny soothes and mollified them. Brigadier general Mitchell says he did no to have to give out his report and every one believes him. Not Only does he Tell the truth by instinct Anil nature but he is too mad and fearless to Tell anything but the truth. There is a theory that one of his enemies gave it out on the principle invented by Samson when in pulled Down the pillars of the Temple. It May be recalled that the it list of casualties filled the entire first Page of the Gaza Gazette on that occasion and that Samson a friends As Well As enemies got rocks on their neets. It May possibly injure Mitchell to have it generally known that he Isnit ready even yet to shut up and let the battleship admirals have their to air shipped Way. But it is a Heap More Apt to injure other people. Mitchell being investigated Mitchell is being inquired into by chief of staff Harbord. That does not necessarily mean that Mitchell j is being disadvantageous inquired into. Harbord is about the Livest wire in the army outside of John j. Pershing himself. He is not a West Pointer hut made his Way to the top through sheer ability. In France he skippered the marines through Belleau Woods and then was dragged away from a most1 enjoyable Job of fighting to be the big chief of the Supply department behind the lines. If it had not been for Harbordt keen vision and absolute Broad gauge wide open disregard for brass buttons Gold braid red tape and tradition the Ameri can army would not have got its supplies on time. So that it does not necessarily follow that Mitchell is in the hands of an enemy when the chief of staff is looking into him. But his friends say that Mitchell is jus about ready to quit. He has had a Fine offer from a commercial flying firm although that does not. Influence him. What does influence him is his conviction that no Progress can be hoped for in aviation in either the army or Navy he believes firmly that the safety of his country will depend largely upon the air Arm in the next War Anil that if our military Fon t s will no develop the Aerial weapon i is duty to do what he can toward developing i through civil aviation. He is wholly sincere and unselfish in this conviction his friends say. Alabama tests useless they Point to the Forth bombing tests in which the old battleship Alabama is to be sacrificed As a proof of Mitchells Contention that the door is closed to Progress in aviation in both the army and Navy. Mitchell had As iced that the Alabama be turned Over to the army fliers to do what they wished. It having been demonstrated that a battleship can be sunk by heavy bombs he did not a am to waste time in vain repetition. He wanted to make a real test of bombing of i under Battle conditions. 1 a we wanted to fill her magazines Centennial Celebration and Lamar fair opening at hand Jwj Jwj a Quot a colonel Mason Mathews Patrick of the Engineer corps has been nominated by president Harding As chief of the army air service with the rank a if major general.
