Glasses vyorn for a short time now and then
are decidedly restful and Beneficial to
many people. The condition of the eyes
does not require constant use of glasses,
but the eyes do get tired and cause
distress. Properly fitted lenses givp
the necessary rest.
"Rest" glasses must be accurate or they
do more harm than good. ,
One is certain of securing exactly the
right lenses when the purchase is
made at Clinton's.

Dear Mr. Bvre;
Just-ii lino to lot you know how
things are In the aviation end of the

mads sorgeant tho Tlay tho squadron

non-commissioned olTlco in tho arifly.

Art Wormian was in our squadron
the first six weoks. He was sargeant
major and of course when ho passed
for commission ho was transferred
out to tho officers' rosorvo squadron
Ho 1b now in the non-flyers' school. I(
passed tho non-ilyors' exam, last woek.
but am going out with the squadron
and take the chance of getting u com
mission Inter on, as tho non-flyers'
school Is very well filled up now and 1 1
would probably havo to wait three i
months before getting in. Was sure
sorry to have Wormian leavo our
squadron, nu ho is a prince, and of,
courso tho only, former North Platte

Our squadron Is assigned to a con
struction battallion and will leavo here
In three weeks and go to Now York
for about four weoks and then to Eng
land tor tnrco months training and
then to France. Thnt will sure, be
some trip and tho experience will bo
worth a great deal to all of us boys,
The aviation section is the highest
branch in the army and 1 would ad
viso any young fellow contemplating
enlisting to try tho aviation corps as
thoy only take tho best class of men.
TJioio aro anything from a lawyer rind

Out of tho 1G0 thero aro over 100 that
havo been college men and all ard re
fined gentlemen. Tho feed is sure
great. I have picked up exactly twen-
ty-ono pounds sinco coming here, in
spite of tho heat. A follow would
havo to pay ?40 per month for board
Hko wo get in Squadron No. C4.
I have mddo two trips in planes, was
9000 feet ohco with Major Clarke. We
turned ton tall spina and looped-tho-loop
flVO'tinies. It makes a follow glad
ho is living to get up in a plane. 1
tried thp''aViators'exani. and passed
tho mental test, but was rejected" in
tho physical in tho dizziness test. It
surely takes great nerve to be an avi
ator and pass the exam., but I am go
ing to try It later on. .
There are 15,000 mon at Kolly Field
now nnd tho government is going to
put 75,000 hero for tho winter. There
nro about 200 planes here, and among
them two" battle planes. Tho Liberty
