•-PAGE EIGHT Caruthersville Society—Personal Army Sergeant Develops Secret' Aid For Fighting . . Ships CLEVELAND, O. (UP)—A revolutionary now fuel system, developed secretly, by an Army Air COTJK sergeaitt and a Clevqland concern will enable United Stales nilllmry plaaes to Sly for great di.Maiu-es at altitudes above 2d.NOii leet, out of the- rouge ol anti-aircraft (Ire. Experimental night (lain on American military airplanes disclosed that they could noi be depended upon to maintain consistently high altitude:,. One pi:nc might be able to fly at 22,000 feet today and at oniy 18,500 tomorrow. Tile reason for tills varying performance i.s known to s^ronaiclcir engineers as "vapor.lock." and re- suits from an uneven (low of fuel because of the varying atmospheric pressure in the "thin air" ol the sub-stratosphere. At certain altitudes high test gasoline vaporize. 1 ! and replaces liquid fuel In teed lines. Tests al IVrlgli! FMil • ' It was to overcome (hi; "vapor lock" that Sergt. Ralph E. Gray and the Pump Engineering Service Corporation of Cleveland carried on a series of experiments at Wright Field, Dayton, O., and developed the new fuel .system, which is being .produced exclusively for army and navy planes. { Secretary of War Harry II. Woo'drlng recently wrote Gray congratulating him "tor this de- V..O[:nK-nt which is ihe product of your ingenuity, skill, zeal tind enthusiasm." All engineering- details of tlie new fuel system have been kept .secret, but it was disclosed that "vapor lock" was overcome by placing the fuel pump at a point remote from the heal of the motor and at a level more eqtnl to Hut of the gasoline tank and fuel supply. Altitude Not Consistent Military aircraft using conventional fuel systems have been able in the past to approach 20,000 feet altitude, but have been unable to operate consistently above that level. Al! statistic. 1 ! of the experimental flights with the new system at Wrlghl Field have been kept secret by army officials, bill It has bee levealed thnt it lius made po«lb)<- long flights at much hlghsr ,i, twles. '"Aeronautical engineers irellsv that the secret development iv give .American bombing, reoau nalssance and pursuit, planes • great ' advantage over those o' other'nations, more vulnerable nnti-aircrnfl gurs.

BV U'AI/riJR United l' rl:ss staff oiicii MONTGOMERY, Ala, ilJP) _ There Is a new "vanishing American." He is the hired man on the nnlIon's farms. The Alabama state extension .service reports that a majority of American farms lociay depend on tile laborers "going through the country," instead of ihe olii-fash- lonoO hired man who was considered almost one of the family. The service estimates tha't today more than n million workers move from farm to farm and stale to .stale, ".sonic traveling several inndrcd miles In it year, following the crops." They have virtually .supplanted the hired man of old Ujroiioljoiit the nation. The farm security administnaion points out Hint, In ih L , eastern half of the country "several thousand mleralory workers" follow the crops from Florida and the Gulf Males to Michigan and New Jersey. At prospiu, these nomads of the soil are cunveifjiii; on Florida ,"<»• the new harvest season, where they will remain until laie spring, harvesting beans, celery, lettuce, tomatoes and other truck crops and citrus fruit in the lower state. i)y late spring, these groups will start moving northward again I'hey will follow !!><• harvest up the Atlantic coast, gathering peaches and Georgia, asparagus in South Carolina, truck crops, strawberries and potatoes in Vir- t'i'iin, potatoes and truck crops In Maryland and Delaware, and asparagus, white potatoes, strawberries, beans, pens and cranberries in New Jersey and New i'ork. They will stnru the soullnvnrd trek again in (he fall, most, of them starling all over aeain early next winter in Florida. Others with a dlflcrent yen for ravel will leave Florida this spring I" pursue Ihe harvest up the Mis- f Mmp, valley.
