Big Submarines Are Ineffective. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 29 April 1921
Big Submarines Are Ineffective. rn n iuui hm in the submarine vs. battleship controversy, Admiral Sir 11. Bacon states that because of the constructional conditions attending submarine design, a craft which navigates below water loses a large per cent of her surface lighting efficiency. 'Ton for ton, the lighting and scouting efficiency of a submersible craft of whatever size is only alwjut 15 per cent of that of tiie surface vessel. Sir George Ov en- Thun ten, naval director of Vickers, Limited, gives figures to show that a submarine of 5,-150 tons, having n surface speed of 30 knots, could mount an armament of only one 5.5-inch and one 3-inch gun.

IN JUNGLE'S GRIP I Writer Tells of Varieties of Tropical Tramps. Three Distinct Types Encountered In the Wilderness, Far From Any Habitation of White Men. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 29 April 1921
IN JUNGLE'S GRIP I Writer Tells of Varieties of Tropical Tramps. Three Distinct Types Encountered In the Wilderness, Far From Any Habitation of White Men. The more one wanders In the tropics, the stronger grows tiie call of the wanderlust, writes Harry L. Foster in Leslie’s. It makes tropical tramps. I have met many of them. Some were bums; some were railroad superintendents or managers of mining camps. Their one common falling was the foot itch. When two ITotestant missionaries passed through Lima on their way across the jungles to the Amazon to see whether the cannibals would take kindly to conversion, I left the embassy and joined them. We traveled by mule over the Andes and down the headwaters of the big rivers. Then we paddied down in a dugout canoe, sleeping at night on mosquito-infested sandbars, eating turtle eggs and monkey meat. I had met one class of T. T.’s in the mining camps—the kind that travel from camp to camp, making enough at one mine to carry them on to the next....
Dangers of Other Centuries. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 29 April 1921
Dangers of Other Centuries. A good many hundred thousand years ago there were various queer animals on this earth, and one of the queerest was a creature that is known today under the pleasant title of plesiosaurus dolichodeirus, or longnecked sea lizard. These far from pretty animals had a body shaped somewhat like a cigar, with a snakelike neck and a head that resembled a duck’s, while it was thrust through the water by four flappers and a short tail. An idea of their size can be gathered when it is known that a single tooih was a foot or more in length, and its head, the smallest part of its anatomy, was six feet long. A total length of 00 feet would not be a giant by any means, and there is reason to believe its strength was so great that a single snap of the jaws would be powerful enough to cut through a tree with a 36-inch circumference. It lived almost ail of the time in the sea, and dined oil’ fish and other marine food. Its battles must have been terrific, as skeletons have...
ALL A “SIMPLE MAN ’ KNEW But His Cheery Greeting Caucccl Many To Take More Hopeful View of Life. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 29 April 1921
ALL A “SIMPLE MAN ’ KNEW But His Cheery Greeting Caucccl Many To Take More Hopeful View of Life. Used to have a man down our way that some folks called “short” In his upper story. We never looked for him to say a sensible thing or do one. lie couldn’t if he tried with all his might. He was the neighborhood fool, says a writer in Farm Life. IJut one thing that man did know, and that was that Cod never unde a day that was not all right. Whether it rained or snowed or blew or shone, It was a tine day with him. Meet him anywhere and you would never catch him without a smile on his face and a cheery, “Nice day 1” on his lips. And this man who was short in the upper story did more to make folks feel good inside of them and inspire them to look on the bright side of dtf© than any —ot her farmer ttt the neighborhood. We all went on after we had met him in the road with a warmer feeling in our hearts, thinking: “Now, maybe it really is a better day than I had thought it was.” No man could ha...
Singing Frogs, [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 29 April 1921
Singing Frogs, Frozen frogs are poultry. Ergo, live frogs must be birds. Such is the reasoning of the United States customs service. Lem Louie Wing, cook on the Persia Mam, brought a pair of singing frogs all the way from China as pets for his little niece up in Chinatown. P.eing honest, Lem Louie visited the customs house and declared his intention of bringing into the United States two frogs. Now, according to customs rules, everything entering the port must come under its proper classification. The tomes of the office were searchedand no classification of frogs war found. It looked like Lem Louie’s little niece would have to get along without her pets. Then Deputy Surveyor Cook had t&lt; bright idea. Reference to the appraisal lists under the heading of “poul try” showed that frozen frogs may enter as “poultry.” Such being the case, Collector Irby was called upon to rule whether live frogs might not enter as “birds.” “The reasoning is char.” he ni'ed. “If the general appr...
