FIELD OF FUTURE
Army Officer Discusses Possi
. bilities cf Aeroplane.
COULD DESTROY A NATION.
By Dropping Incendiary Mixture Fly
ing Machine Could Duplicate San
Francisco Fire After Circling Two 6r
Three Times Above a City.
Believing firmly that the field of fu
ture war operations will be at least
partly in the air, the heads of the
United States' army are looking Into
the matter of trying out the aeroplane
as an offensive weapon. According to
Major George O. Squier, president of
the army aeronautical board, the aero
plane at the present rate of construc
tion and art of manipulation will be
capable of flying at the rate of 100
miles an hour within two years. Lieu
tenant Foulois, .who accompanied Or-
ville Wright in his five mile straight
away dash from Fort Mye'r to Alex
andria, Va., and return, says that at
one time the aeroplane was 500 feet;
in the air. ' - . ' x
Since that flight Orvllle Wright has
attained a height of 1,500 feet in Ger
many. Foulois declares that Wright
could bave flown four times as high as
he did at Fort Myer if he had cared
to do so.
Dropping, Explosives From the Air.
. It was suggested to Major ' Squier
that with the Improved capacity of the
Wright machine to soar In the a'r,
practically at the will of the aviator,
the aeroplanes may be made to. carry
explosives for offensive purposes, to
be dropped on cities or warships.
'It will hardly be explosives," said
Major Squier, "that will constitute the
really dangerous weapon of the aero
plane. It will use what we term 'in
cendiary mixtures compositions con
taining phosphorus, and other chemic
als which ignite readily on contact
with the air. Destruction by fire rath
er than by explosion will be the real
war work of file flying, machines. I
really believe that- in two years or per
haps a little longer we will have aero
planes that can fly at the ipte of 100
miles per hour, and the dirigibles will
probably be. making seventy or seven-ty-five.
- . -
"An aeroplane armed with a hundred
pounds of the strongest of these in
cendiucy mixtures- could duplicate the
San Francisco Hre by circling two or
three times around a city. The de
struction which they could wreak at a
total expense of $10,000, including the
aeroplane, would t surpass that of a
bombardment by 'the biggest battle
ship fieet that ever was got together
firing $10,000,000 . worth of shot and
shell into the doomed town.
Terrible to Contemplate. , .
"Army officers have not talked of
this aspect of the possibilities In pub
lic. The talk is rather 'scary,' but
there is no exaggeration in saying that
the value of the aeroplane as a fight
ing force' to. be reckoned with in the
wars of the future is something ter
rible to contemplate. - - . '
"What may be done with the dirigi
ble is anotherproblem. j The dirigible
is neither as convenient nor as mobile
an affair as the aeroplane. It is a bet
ter bad , weather, craft, and it is capa
ble of carrying far heavier loads of de
structive. agents. At the same time,
as I have said before, an aeroplane
can carry enough to do. a damage that
would 'stagger humanity.' and if the
dirigible can do more damage it also
figures in the newer war problem."
JOIN WAR ON TUBERCULOSIS.
Unions and Fraternal Organizations In
Fight on "White Plague."
Ten. fraternal and benefit organiza
tions with a membership of nearly
4,000.000 and three International labor
unions with, a membership of over 100,
