(International)- Fire Marshal Shea Discusses Fire, Panic (Continued Irom Pnge 1) The conditions which produce it. however, may be reduced to a point where the possibility of the creation of a panic is almost nil. Nevertheless, wherever a crowd gathers, the danger is always present. "Punic has occurred under many circumstances. It is common among lower animals—cattle .stampedes, among others—and when human beings lose their heads in a panic, they revert to the status of animals, whose only reaction is flight. "Fear robs man of his power to reason. History is full of catastrophes which have caused death rind injury to persons when fear has gripped a crowd. Whole armies have thrown clown their arms and fled in disorder when panic marched onto the battlefield. If .1 fear cannot be mastered it results into panic. It is this transmission of fear which must, be prevented. To overcome it, rigid discipline and extensive training are used in the armed forces, which accounts for the steadfastness of the veteran as compared with the recruit. "Fire as a possible cause of panic in our modern civilization always must be considered, particularly in connection with places where large numbers of people congregate. "The cry of fire alone may not cause u stampede, as several coolheaded persons can assume control, but the glare of flames and the rush of smoke and heated gas- e.s. can set the .stage .for a panic of the worst sort, "This fire and panic hazard exists not only in such places of assembly as theaters, night clubs, and schools, but also in factories, stores, churches, hotels, and any other- place where a large number of people can collect. . "As a safety measure, the matter of exits is the first thought that comes to mind. ll cannot be denied that adequate exits, well placed, and suitably marked will go far towards giving an individual a sense of security, thereby lessening the panic complex. '.'.ISxits alone arc not the answer. Fires also produce toxic gases, so that even if people do remain quiet. .sitting or slowly making their way nut, instead of joining in a mad scramble to leave the building, may bo overcome or perhaps be lost in flames. Thus, the complete danger can never be eliminatd no matter MS there is always margin for error. "Help the fire marshal's odlce to help you and yours by taking advice from his experience. Remove oil barrels or drums to a safe place. The back veranda is not a safe place. Remove all rubbish from cellars and buck yards. Clean chimneys now, and avoid fires in the fall ».nd winter. "Lot us be mindful of the fact that wo itrc not Immune from fire, and that-It happens only-to someone else. "The tragedy in Hartford where the huge circus lent wont up in flames like cellophane will probably go down in history, as the worst fire of that kind. How little those pfcoplc attending that performance thought that their joy would be turned into sorrow in such a short time. Fire seldom gives warning, and for this reason every effort to avoid it should be made. "From time to time, I make those suggestions and they are accepted hy many people who arc anxious to avoid the inconveniences of .Ire. "The wholehearted support of the people of Naugatuck is asked for—cooperate and remove all hazards," the marshal concluded.

Thousands of workers read News 1 Want A(U Daily.. ' .7 Sailor Spends Spare Time On Magno-lotor By PATT -PATTEUSON United I'rCKS Stuff Correspondent Jacksonville,. Fla. , (U P). — A mapno-molor invented In his spare time 1 by an cnll.Mtcd.-'irmn 'at . the Jacksonville naval air station-may not .be. "porpoiualMiiotioiv.-!—wnicn, science tells us: is/Impossible, anyway—but It sure comes close to it. He is J. P. .Sparks,..who wus ; a railio repairman;:at. Blueficld, W. Va., before entering 1 ', the navy two years ago. The''basic'.Idea'for Klaj 'motor came 'to him two years bc-i fore that when he w.-i.s fooling- around .with some magnets; ' He noticed that a . magnet suspended on a string, above.a bucket of magnets begun to turn and, con-, tinucd to spin }3r three hours until he moved the.buck'ct. ' : ' Principle of K par Its' magno- motor Is the insertion and withdrawal of a soft-Iron 'shield bc- 'twecn -two movable magnets causing 'them t'o alternately attract and repel 'each other. Movement of the shield, Sparks estimates, 1 requires only J-30th of' the energy gcivcratcd by the motor, leaving the other 29-30ths for useful, work —powering .an automobile or airplane, pumping water, running a. dynamo or turning miichinery. Cost of one of his. magni-rnotors will be only a fraction of the cost of an electric or gasoline motor to do the same work, Sparks'•.says, mid one of his motors would require no fuel, would run for a year and could be recharged, in a .second to run another year. He says recharging can be done by allowing one second of ordinary house electric .'current to Ilo\v through tho magnets for • one second.. ' . • Electrical engineers at the naval station are enthused about Sparks' little gadget and have declared that a fullsr/.e motor' similar to the working .model he has would be fully'as ellicient^as a gasoline or electrical motor of equal weight. Sparks Is ' now experimenting with the third model he has built; The first attained a speed of 100 [•evolutions per- minute and generated almost three volt's of useful electricity. It-weighed - loss, than two pounds. ,;S.p a.r.k s says he neglected to provide a. brake or governor for his 'second, machine, a larger one, antl it 1 reached such terrific velocity 1 that magnets ficw all over tho shop-several narrowly missing the-inventor. •".•'• An aviation radioman, t h.l r d 'class Sparks has'.set up- a. small machine, shop o(T'. the b;isc and clcvotcr] every minute of his - liberty periods to' playing with, his beloved'magnets.'He feels he really; has something—it .he can oust contact someone 1 'with .a' little money and the vision- to.'pioncer with him in construction of a lull .sized magno-motor.
