Preface
This week’s focus is on the War in The Sky.
You’ll learn about some new action up there,
the death of one of the most prominent aces of the era,
new educational materials arriving this week for teachers about the WWI air war,
and a story about the tech that kept pilots from shooting off their propellers as they engaged the enemy.
But first… as we jump into our centennial time machine and go back 100 years this week - we are going to start --  
not in the sky but with a mysterious story about the war on the seas and also Germany’s claims about the success of their u-boats!

World War One THEN
100 Year Ago This Week
It’s the middle of April 1918 and in the pages of the Official Bulletin, the government’s daily war gazette, published for President Wilson by George Creel, his propaganda chief --  this week we find articles of a missing ship - A big one !
[SOUND EFFECT]
Dateline: Monday April 15, 1918
The headline in the bulletin  reads:
Naval Collier Cyclops Overdue Since March 13 at Atlantic Port;
Left West Indies.
Personnel on Board Consisted of 15 Officers, 221 Men of Crew, and 57 Passengers - Searched for, by Radio and Ships, But No Trace is to Be Found.
An the story reads:
The U. S. S. Cyclops, a navy collier of 19,000 tons displacement, loaded with a cargo of manganese, is overdue at an Atlantic port.
She last reported at one of the West Indian Islands on March 4, and since her departure from that port no trace of her nor any information concerning her has been obtained.
Radio calls to the Cyclops from all possible points have been made and vessels sent to search for her along her probable route and areas in which she might be - all with no success.
Weather Has Not Been Bad.
A Collier is a Coal Carrier and The Cyclops is a massive one. She is 540 feet long and 65 feet wide. It is so big it is often referred to as a “floating coal mine,”
The ship should have been docked in the waters off Baltimore after she  was sent to Brazil to pick up a load of manganese.
Now, manganese is pretty valuable stuff right no
