PAGE EIGHT BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Navy Tows Toy Ships '. Throng li Artificial Waves In Basin BY WILUS THORNTON NEA Service Slaft' Correspondent WASHINGTON, Feb. 4. — The test ship model testing devices (lie country has ever known svill be nvailable by Die time llic proposed new naval and merchant, marine shipbuilding programs art well under way. Everything that can be learned by the most careful and exuding tests of models will be available I'or the new ships. One of the-greatest model testing basins in the world is under way near Washington fit Carde- Jock, two trifles from Cabin John, Md., In n remote and seldom- vlsiled area on the upper Potomac above the capita!. Construction Is well under way for building the basins, which will replace the o!cl navy testing baaiii at the Washington Navy Yard, built in 1900, but now obsolete. The basins, wlien completed, will cost $3,300,000. U. S. Is Far Uelilml Many titties the cost of such basins are saved in ship operation later, navy engineers believe, because the tel.s- ivlth models enable the designers to choose the most efficient hull and propulstonv designs by practical experiment. And then as long ns the ship sails, it continues to reflect the saving. The United States Is far behind major foreign countries in testing basin facilities, and designers believe It Is very Important lliat the new ships be not handicapped in competition with foreign ships by inadequate pre-testlng wllii models. . On the remote site at Cardcrock, foundations have already been driven deep flown to solid rock for the engineering laboratories, shops, and long shed-like buildings which will cover the testing basins. The bedrock Is important, because the slightest sinking would throw out of alignment the delicate machinery with which the tests are made. Use Model Ships Three basins will be included. One will be long and deep, another short and shallow, with a turning basin, and another long and narrow for frictioiwl tests and seaplane trials. The model basins are to ship design what n wind tunnel Is to airplane design. Ship models are built 'of varying lengths (o a. tnnx- i imum of 20 feet, with the hull and other equipment to be tested in exact scale to the ship to be built Then, in the short or long, deep or shallow pools, wave conditions are created of the exact kind the big ship U designed to meet. Along the basins are tracks, with an overhead bridge arrangement , crossing the pool. This bridge moves along the pool, towing the model ship. Delicate instruments mounted on the overhead bridge record the actions of the model ship, and from tins data it Is possible to refine and improve the design of hulls, rudders, propellers and other- ijquipment. So delicately is this' machinery adjusted that the tracks paralleling the basin actually conform with the curvature of the earth In the space of lOOO feet, the length of the longest pool, that is pretty delicate measurement. Available to Merchant Marine Tlie new testing basin, while designed, administered and operated by the navy, will be available to private shipbuilders for testing their designs for new merchnn marine ships. Great Lakes, inlnnc waterways bargemen, and othei marine designers will find the ne\v basin available. The income fron such private use is expected t pay nearly half of the maintenance cost of the completed basin. A start of about 100 men will be required to operate it. While the testing basin will not be completed for nearly two years, it will be available for use on much of the naval and merchant marine construction that lies ahead In the present long-range program.

Four Cuban "Sugar Daddies" Are Sweet About Spending liV GEORGK KOSS NEW YORK, Feb. 5.—Of nil "Big Spenders" who have endeared themselves to. (lie owners of hot spots, the Brothers Sandiest of Ciibn arc regarded more nllcctlon- ately than most others. There :tre lour Brothers Snnclie?. — Julio. George. Marcel and Emilia—nncl ivhei) ' (hey nrc. out on n sprpp iti New York, fun, not economy, Is Hie object. Tlie playboy nnUcs of George niicl Marcel nrc recorded regularly when they are on a spending bat; the Messrs., Julio and Emillo are less prodigal with their $1000 bills and consequently, rate less publicity. But they do well enough. To cafe solons n round here, the four Sanchezes literally are the "sugar daddies" of the night life. For their wealth derives from n vast sugar mill in Cuba niul llic wealth rolls in fast. Toa fast. The excess burns their pockets. Easy Come, Easy Co Once, the legend runs, George Sanchez made n routine excursion to Manhattan iti order to dispose of a mountain o! sugar, \ylicii the deal was closed, he found' himself ivitli $58.000 more profit than he anticipated. Ills conscience liother- ed him. He didn't feel thai lie deserved tlic surplus. So. with characteristic good will, lie phoned four night clubs, reserved them for four successive nights and threw an equal number of champagne celebrations in them. Total bill; $56.000. One could almost hear the revolution approaching from around Hie corner. Between their suisar milling in Cuba and their gold mining 111 Costa Rica, Ihe Brothers Sanchc/. allot themselves four flying trips to the linrly-burly o( Manhattan own binding field nl Scnada nncl they linve been known to soar over here? will) n > flying squadron of their own guests. Their frantic vls- ils lo New York last but a month; so being pressed for time, they must perforce, hurry through their bankrolls. Being hospHnbie fellows, the Brothers Sanchez not only bring their Cuban friends to Nciv York. It is not unusual for them to round up a group of Broadway notables In the small hours, transfer them to the alrpovl and fly them dowr. to Havana for n week-long hoiise- civery your. They commute via their privately-owned planes from their party. Helen Morgan is their most frequent house guest on these Impulsive expeditions. Uulibling Generosity When the Brothers Sanchez sit in cafes, it breaks their hearts to notice (hat the folk at (lie adjoining eight tables are suffering alone; on i-colcli nnd sodns. Such libation reflects upon their reputation as self-appointed hosts. And so, they like to summon the wine steward nnd order magnums of the best champagne in the house to be served to people they don't know. When Ihe convivial spirit warms up and they make new acquaintances, the Brothers Sanchez instruct the proprietor to send up n case of champagne each ot their newly found friends' apartments—at night _club prices. dozen cases of excelsior Veuve Cllquot and the parly is in progress. For their gracious participation, in these amiable routs, the young ladies are rewarded with $100 bilis.

They also voted to have a party and a committee was appointed by tlie president to meet with him and make plans. Each jnemuer promised to serve on any committee that he or she would be asked to he on. The club made plans to take part in the 4-H Basketball Tournament at Manila on Friday and Saturday ot this week. Big Families on Farm • No Longer the Custom BERKELEY, Cat.
