bten deliberately shelling an Ameri

office in Washington this sheet sold
The stamps bought by Colonel
j Green were turned back by a Wash
u ington citizen at the stamp window be
cause the airplane was inverted. In
the line behind this citizen was a man
who sensed the philatelic value of the
sheet, and purchased it at its face
value, and it reached the hands of a
Philadelphia stamp dealer, who re-

Colonel Green said he planned to
retain a portion of the sheet for his
collection, and dispose of the other

sheet proves to be the only one in ex
istence outside of government owner

The weather has changed for tha
worse and rain is reported falling
generally on the Somme and Picardy
fronts. This imposes additional hard
ships on the Germans who hold tha
shell torn lowlands, while the allies
occupy the high ground, most of
which is unscarred by war. If the
Germans were not prepared to attack
when the weather was most favorable, '
i is not likely they will essay a new
offensive operation while rain and
mud retard their movements.
American airmen now patrol the
sector northwest of Toul and '; a
squadron is acting as the eyes for
and protector of the American troops
on this front. The recent activity of
American airmen in the region east
of St. Mihiel was carried on by this
squadron, which also is aided by
other American aviators.
'' American troops also may be soon
fighting the Austro-Huntrarians in the
mountains of northern Italy. At the
climax to the celebration of Italy's
entrance into the war, in New York,
Secretary of War Baker announced
that machine gun and artillery units
soon would be standing side by side
with General Diaz's men. Strong
patrol and artillery activity continues
on the Italian front.
