a number of cases are under investi

here. Congress recently passed
taw providing a maximum penalty of
$100 fine "and! six months Imprison
ment for killing government pigeons.
The birds trained in this country
can be used in France only for breed
ing purposes, as the winged cour
iers must be put into service before
the "settle" which is at the age of
eight weeks or less. France and
England hare about 0.000 of the
birds end Germany, at the opening
ff the war, is said to have had 50.
000. The United States Is expected
to have more homing pigeons of the
"90 per cent efficient" class than
any country in the world before win
ter, according to ofifcers.
Birds accepted by the United States
must have pedigrees and be of the
racing homer breed. Those now used
as carriers are not the original car
riers, bnj are known as the racinr
Belgian homer, a cross from the Enr
lish carrier to the tumbler and then
through one of the owl-pigeon breeds

have flown a far as eight hundred
miles on a single flight."
"Lieutenant Butler said that these
birds, when- released under the heav

cut a great circle to get their bear
ings and then dart for their lofts at
a height or half a mile with such
speed as to defr anti-aircraft fire.
