Tears Down Chimney While much of the work has been of a constructive nature, one project has a distinctive destructive character, namely, the wrecking of the chimney of the old heating plant. This item is being accomplished by a student, Paul Lionberger, whoso chief claim to the steeplejack profession is experienced in shipyards. The youthful wrecker startled spectators when he stood on top of the 90-foot chimney equipped with a pneumatic triphammer with which he removed a foot- thick concrete slab which topped the structure. Seated on a specially constructed device in the chimney hole Lionberger sledges his way through course after course of brick, as he works his way toward the base of the chimney, 90 feet below.
