When it comes to acting without precedent the present occupant of the White House holds the blue ribbon. Is there anyone President Wilson met at the peace conference with whom he has not quarreled? Is there anyone of his own entourage with whom he is now on good terms? If so, for the love of Mike, break the suspense and name him.

The 66-mile smoke screen that has had the Germans guessing for weeks along the Rhine, described March 22 in a press dispatch as “the largest, longest and  most protracted screen ever used in warfare” is made of a petroleum derivitive, a single particle of which cannot be seen by the naked eye. It is composed of billions of tiny non-irritating particles, so small that it would take tens of thousands of them, set side by side, to make a row one inch long. They remain suspended in the air for a long time, hiding all movements on the ground and at the same time throwing a reflected glare back at enemy aircraft observers.
