New Life-Saver. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 13 May 1921
New Life-Saver. To a lifeguard at'Pablo Beach, Fla., is attributed the invention of a new kind of life-saving float, which is a * cylinder of thin steel, pointed at both ends, three feet long and weighing only six pounds. The contrivance is* attached by a short line to the guard’s belt. Thus. If an adventurous swimmer be in dan ger of drowning outside the surf, the life saver can swim out to the rescue the tloat blobbing behind him. To the float are attached rope handgrasps, which the drowning person"can grab. The float, however, is connected with the shore by a long line, so that when the exhausted person has "grabbed it he may easily be dragged ashore. Though very smajLin size it will support six men.

The Scotch rt\ ckod Scotland from Ireland and are not the descendants of Gaelic Celts who had been pushed north by a later (British) invasion of ' itain. The first authentic information on Scotland dates from the time the Romans, 70 A. D. Roman rule in Britain came to an end in 110, and Britain then ceased to be part of the Homan empire. The population of Scotland is made up of Pictish, Irish, British, Saxon, Danish and Norman elements, all of them Indo-Celtic, the three first, Celtic, the three last, Germanic peoples. The Piets contributed the bulk of the population, but were overcome by the Scottl (Irish), who had settled in Dali iada, a part of the present county of Argyle. The Scotti then became the dominant people. Brythonic Celts dwelt in Strathclyde; their chief city was Dumbarton (Dun Bretten, “Fort of the Britons”). Toward the c...
Would You Lika a Mew Name? [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 20 May 1921
Would You Lika a Mew Name? How many of us, if we had the chance, would change our Christian names? Lady Kitty Vincent, writing to the London Daily Express, declares that there should be a law that the name given by our godfathers and our godmothers in our baptism should not be considered binding. When we reach the years of discretion, she says, we might be allowed to change them. Her ladyship continues: “Remember the sad story of the parents who christened their daughter ‘Wylde’ because their name was Rose, and being artistic people, they thought it made a charming sound picture. But she married a man called Bull!”

MOVES WITH REST Or WORLD Abundant Proof That China Is V/akj ir.g Up From Her Sleep of Two Thousand Years. As a study in strange customs and startling incidents, China is interesting because it 1 as changed so littie in point of view during the iast two thousand years. The characteristic of China is satisfaction with the wisdom of the fathers, slowness to let go of principles tested by ages. The good old-fashioned Chinese soldier slouching along in his baggy clothes, or doubled up on a pony, the shave-paled priest, the magistrate with iiis glass button and peacock’s feathers, the coolie in his blue cotton drawers, the plumy merchant in his silks, have been coming and going for two or I three millenniums, just about the same. Up to two decades ago the land seemed unchanged and unchangeable. The empire has an organization under which the nation has as much internal peace, and more prosperity, than most of its neighbors. Nevertheless even a month or two I in China makes it clear enough ...
EARLY AMERICAN BLUE LAWS In 1643 the Idea of “Paternalism” Had a Distinct Hold on tho Communities. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 20 May 1921
EARLY AMERICAN BLUE LAWS In 1643 the Idea of “Paternalism” Had a Distinct Hold on tho Communities. In early America the township and provincial authorities regulated private conduct and personal affairs with a rigor which, if sought to be applied now, would raise a general and indignant outcry. What are called “blue laws” were familiar to our ancestors, and it would appear that they reprei sented public opinion as to what cou- | stituted proper and seemly conduct I on the people’s part. As bearing on the daylight saving ! matter, and as proving that it Is difI ficult to find something new under the I sun, the municipal authorities of Hart--1 ford, Conn., have found among their I records that a general town meeting ■ in Hartford, October 24, 1043, voted I (hat there should be a bell rung by 1 the watch every morning an hour be- ! fore daybreak, “and that they who are I appointed by the constable for that | purpose shall begin at the bridge and ; so ring the bell all the way forth and...
‘PEAS’ 1.1 SPOKE And Negro Bearers Hurriedly Abandoned Litter. Incident Would Have Shaken the Nerve of Men Far Less Superstitious Than the Dusky Soldiers. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 20 May 1921
‘PEAS’ 1.1 SPOKE And Negro Bearers Hurriedly Abandoned Litter. Incident Would Have Shaken the Nerve of Men Far Less Superstitious Than the Dusky Soldiers. I feel sure we are all pretty well agreed as to the genuine bravery disj played by Uncle Sam’s brunettes in i action! The little incident which I I am about to relate will not, I hope, I detract very much from the above statement, Louise M. itiis writes in , theJStars and Stripes. It happened on a dismal, rainy night; just such a night, in fact, as you all doubtless remember, when our C. O. usually elected to rearrange the classes of patients who were confined to bed in the various wards. A muggy, sloppy, wettish sort of night, when the bravest sort of chap hesitated to venture out with oilskins and hip boots. So naturally we were not greatly surprised when the order came to transfer a few of the flu cases to the ward opened on the opposite side of the camp. All such rases were kept at the extreme end of the ward, divided from the...
Shipbuilding is Intricate Art. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 20 May 1921
Shipbuilding is Intricate Art. the construction of a great ship requires more separate arts and trades than any other object made by man,” said Admiral D. W. Taylor, chief of the bureau of construction of the United States navy department in a recent meeting of the Royal Ontario institute. Among the actual branches of science which enter into shipbuilding the oldest is astronomy, which is still of great importance to navigators. Radio apparatus Is peculiarly an advantage to the navy. Mathematics is an essential, of course, to all the other sciences. Mathematical apparatus for range finding, he stated, Is employed, which determine instantly problems containing as many as half a dozen variables. Chemistry and physics contribute in a great measure to the complete battleship, the branch of optics alone ! having given many advantages. In the matter of electrical science the scope to which it is used on the batj tleship may be appreciated by the | fact that the average large warship j can...
Ingenious Planting Device. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 20 May 1921
Ingenious Planting Device. ! By the ingenious application of a discarded two-cylinder opposed motorcycle engine, a New York farmer has devised a celery-transplanting fnaj chine, says Popular Mechanics Maga- • nine, that automatically sets the plants while propelling itself. The motor, hung between the front wheels, transmits its power to them, and also operates two endless belts. While one man guides the machine, two others at the back place the small plants on i marks on one of the belts, as it crosses a feed table. The other belt holds them in position, roots forward, until they enter a furrow made by a small plow on the machine, and two following disks then turn the earth back around the roots.
