The state Council of defense having called for companies of state militia for service within the state Only a number have responded in Williamsport about 22 in All. This is not a sufficient number to form a company. It seems strange that men claiming to be Loyal citizens who when their neighbors Are being called to the National service will suffer the needs of the Home to go and not be willing to do their bit. The District of Pence and Hedrick Are getting a company in Fine shape we Are told also Marshfield has an enrolment of 26 for the same purpose. Williamsport which should be the Center of such an activity is doing very Little in the matter even worse. Some citizens Are reported As knocking and making statements calculated to deter men from joining such an organization. Such parties we cannot All them men Are worthy of the severest criticism if not punishment As it is obstructing the National program. It is said that if the response is not better next tuesday night that the men who Are seeking to form the organization will give the matter up. They Are All business men and their time is valuable and while they Are willing and glad to give of their time and Money for the National need they feel that in this it will be useless unless the Public respond and do their bit. It seems that it is up to the men to do their part and by their refusal so to do it is evident that they Are willing to Bear their just shame of being known As slackers not even willing to look after the interests of the Home while the rest Are fighting for Liberty in the National army. What Are you going to do about it. Aeroplanes have been called quot the eyes of the army quot on the French and belgian Battle Fields. The general idea of their work is that they Fly High Over the opposing lines taking observations and making pictures Send wireless dispatches fight an occasional enemy plane thousands of feet up and the like. The men in the aircraft do All these things but in Teter engagements particularly they Are doing a great Deal More. Apparently they have grown tired of being eyes and nothing More for accounts of the recent fighting i n Flanders show them in exploits for audacity and daring surpass the fables of the knights of ancient Days. Nor do they do All their fighting High in the air beyond the Range of any except specially constructed guns. They come Down and engage the enemy virtually on the ground Chase officers on horseback attack Railroad trains or batteries Fly at columns of infantry and tackle Machme guns at close Range. The following doings of the airmen at the taking of Steenbeek and bids choose is from the special Corres pon Ilent of the London times quot individual narratives Are told of the most thrilling description. One Man who went off met a German machine below the Clouds and a fight followed which ranged Down to within 50 feet of the ground when the enemy machine Side slipped and crashed. Another visited an aerodrome and fired into the Sheds from a level below their roofs and dived on and silenced a machine gun which fired on him from the ground. Quot another who went out shortly before five in the morning began a Happy Day by first patrolling roads and canals and firing on and scattering any troops he saw. He then visited a n aerodrome which h e found asleep and waked it by drop Ping a bomb on the shed. The place began to Buzz like a hive when he flew round at a height of 30 feet dropping a bomb now and a again on the Sheds and firing into them through the doors with his machine gun. He went off occasionally to change his Drums or fix his bomb lever and each time he came Back and flew round again silencing the machine guns which opened on him and once actually bumping the ground while fire Elf into the Sheds. Then he went off and chased some officers on horseback and scattered a body of 200 troops. He met two hostile aeroplanes and shot Down one and the other bolted. He went to see the machine he had crashed and find ing that a crowd had gathered around it fired into them and sent them flying.
