[no value]
A. Fage
A.R.C.Sc. The present paper gives the mathematical theory of the transverse vibrations of a rotating air-screw and its shaft, and also an application of the method to several practical problems. For generality, the calculations have been made for a two-bladed air-screw when the transverse vibrations are in a plane parallel to both the axis of the air-screw blades and the axis of rotation, and also when in a plane at right angles to the axis of the air-screw blades and parallel to the axis of rotation.

Aircraft Losses in July.—Our Air Service overseas had three famous days last month. The first was July 11, when our aerial activity seems to have borne no special relation to operations in the field. At any rate, our men destroyed fourteen German machines and drove down sixteen out of control, while another was shot down by gunfire from the ground.
