Mile Long Tube to Ocean's Bottom Ready By Nca Service HAVANA, Cuba.—Prof. George.: Claude, the busy French scientisl who believes he can put Ihe warn; walers of Hie gulf slrcam to wor;-. for mankind on an enormous scale. and who has spent most of his life prying Into the obscure corners cj Ihe domain of science, may al tosl ! be on llic verge of a dcvclo;j:;ie:v,, of far-reaching consequences. C!nudc is now close lo the |X>int where he can learn definitely whether his scheme lo generate power from Ihc sea Is practic.-.l. He lias, succeeded in sinking a mile-Ion;; tub? into the sea at Matanzas. after spending n million dollars in three altempls. He is confident tha; the result will be a revolutionary development in industrial engineering. If he succeeds H will mean llvit the humnn race Is forever Ire: 1 :!' ol Us fear of exhausting Us supplies of fuel. It may mean a new economic order and industrial up- lit aval. lion- Flau Works Prof. Claude's scheme. puz/liiv- to the average newspaper reader, is after nil iairly simple. "There are two waler supplies o'. unlimited quantities and niivnryhx temperatures throughout the year in the trnplc oceans," he explains. "There are Ihe surface waters, which rclain the temperature varying bclween 79 and 86 degrees Fahrenheit; Ihcn Ihe icy walers found beneath the surface al fi depth of 1000 yards or more, of a constant temperature of 40 degree; Fahrenheit." Temperature represents energy and so this difference in tempera- lure levels represents a supply ol latent, energy which Clauds proposes lo tap. Claude proposes to harness the tiopic ocean on a principle similar to that in an ordinary s:cam engine. But in n steam cn:;lne the water Is boiled and turner! into steam by healing H with fire. Claude proposes lo do it by substituting a vacuum for lire. His scheme is to .ntrodiice the warm surface waters into a chamber in which a vacuum has beer.- created. The boiling point of water depends entirely upon the nil- pressure. Water, lor example, boils at 212 degrees at sea level, but at so low a temperature on a high mountain that it is not sufficiently hot to boil an egg. Boils at 18 Degrees The-H'acuuav- says Clawlc. will cause the surface water lo bail nl i Its lemperalure, approximately 78 degrees. The sleam ilms lormeii would be used lo turn a turbine. From the turbine the sleam would pas; into a condenser. Here is where the mile-long lube comes in. This tube, extending lo the depths ol Ihe sea. would bring wa- ler at a temperature of -10 degrees. This cold water \vc-uld then be turned into the condenser. This would then condense Ihe slcam. The condensation of Ihe steam (conlraction) would ccate a new vacuum, causing more waler to boil or turn into steam and so, according to Claude, the engine would keep itself ill operation indefinitely. Claude says that each cable foot of water will furnish 11 pounds 01 swam and that it is feasible to build an engine using 35.000 cubic feet of water per second. Such au engine, he says, would furnish 300.000 horsepower. The cost of such plants would be about equal to the cost of modern hydro-electric power plants, with tlieir dams, etc. Is Famous Tnvrr.tor This plan lor getting unlimited power from Ihe sea—a plan tin', sounds almost like perpetual motion—is only one of many intricate problems Claude has applied himself to in his bu>y career.
