j^—-Junior. Editors Quit on "OLD IRONSIDES QUESTION: Wat "Old Ironsides" rtally mad* of Iron? ANSWER: "Old Ironsides" was the nickname for tho U.S.S. Con stlrution, a frigate, actually made of wood. It was her indestructibility in battle that won her the name of "Old Ironsides." On August 19, 1812, the "Constitution" came on the British ship Guerriere, about a hundred miles from Boston. The Constitution fought with the British ship and for 30 minutes the two exchanged a furious fire. The Guerriere lost her masts and surrendered. On Dec. 19 of the same year, the Constitution blasted out another victory near the coast of Brazil. Her crew, seeing cannon balls bounce off her tough oaken bulwarks, proudly named her "Old Ironsides." When the. Constitution grew old, It was proposed to scrap her, But Oliver Wendell Holmes wrote a poem about the old ship, and everyone from children to adults .contributed money to save her. Today, "Old Ironsides" still floats in the Boston Harbor where the public can visit her. FOR YOU TO DO: Ask your parents to help you look up Oliver Wendell Holmes' poem. Then read it to see how Holmes won over a nation to the cause of a ship. Evans Bissonette, Bay City, Mich., wins $10 for this idea. Send your idea to this newspaper.
