CEILING OF THE EARTH.
Air experts say the next war will
be fought on “the celling of the
earth," and in the saying they give
us a new expression. They flx the
limit of altitude at 25,000 feet, there
by establishing the height of the cell

reason to doubt the statement of the
aviators. Indeed. military men gen

war will be fought largely in the air.
The nation that dominates the air tn
the beginning of the struggle will be
the victor, they say. Just as it used

next war will be fought, says Colum

navy blue, black, and deep brown. The
number of these one sees thus meta

Some appear to have bad a change
