AERIAL WARFARE [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 29 January 1915

AERIAL VYAliFARE There is no denying the lmportanci . f aircraft in tile war, but bo far the giant Zeppelins, which. Germany ap pears to be keeping in reserve, are really an unknown quantity. It is interesting to note that a corres pondent, who ha& returned to Eng land from Germany, comments as follows on the hope of the Germans that their Zeppelins will, in the nestr future, cause panic and destruction among British sailors, soldiers, and civilians. . He writes :—"This is more or less nonsense and bluff. If a Zeppelin wiBhes to escape the anti-aircraft guns, it would have to dy at such a height that the aerial warship would appear like a star in the heavens. The damage which may be accomplished by Zeppelins is, therefore, probably small, and large ly a matter of good luck." The dying machines have, however, done a great deal so far, but principally as scouts, in ascertaining the move ments of the enemy and directing artillery fire. As engines of de struction the flying mach...

THE LATEST NEWS. The ha§ been an encounter in the North Sea in which a German cruiser (the Blucherj was sunk, and two others gained the shelter of their mine field in a damaged condition. The British ships sustained very little damage. A Zeppelin has been brought down by Russians at Libau, on the Baltic. A report has been received that the Turks have come into contact with the Allies at the Suez Canal. As we go to press there are but few particulars to hand: but the affair can only be one of outposts, or more propably an attack by a small raiding party.

I found afterward that this was a peculiarity. His nose was apt to turn scarlet in a cold. wind. He.was standing near a small camp-fire, evidently lost in thought and making no effort to keep warm. He seemed six feet and a half m height, was as erect as an Indian, and did not for a moment relax from a military attitude. ."Washington's exact height was six feet' two inches in his boots. He was then a little lame from striking his kuee against a tree. His eye was so gray that it looked almost white, and he had a troubled look on his colorless face. He had a piece of woollen tied around his 'throat and was quite hoarse. Per haps the throat trouble from which he finally died had its origin about then. Washington's boots were enormous...
