German Lieutenant Tells of Engage-
ment In Which French Aviators
Lost Their Live.
"One afternoon a French flyer ap-
peared." says a German lieutenant.
"It circled over Douaumont nnd then
rose high above the clouds. For n long
time It seemed to be just hanging lu
the air. And then from our side there
arose a buzzing n fierce sharp buz-
zing and It made straight like a bee
line for the little French flyer. It
went through the clouds and disap-
peared. No tiling could be seen. Tbi
clouds covered all. Five minutes of
suspense passed and then a shot f.
after thnt a ronrlng. Wo waited
breathlessly and then two little black
spots were seen breaking through tha
clouds. Tiny little spots and these
spots were tbe two French nvlatorn.
They grew bigger as they fell. A mo-
ment after the men came the tlumlng
machine. It came down roaring and
crashing. Its wings were jet on fire
and the red white and blue wf the
trl-colors looked like a revolving
American barber pole. Everything
crushed to the earth a hopeless man-
gled mass Again a spot broke through
the clouds. It en me swift and straight
without any spectacular showing. It
vvas lioc-lko returning home."
