!!^LI^^TXlP OUR -~THE MORNING AVALANCHE Bomb Bursts Are Analyzed SCHENECTADY, N. Y., Feb. 12. (—Bomb shelter;; to withstand the terrific forces of bombs weighing 2,000 pounds and more src- being designed in America, according to Col. George J. R. Fisher of Washington, Fisher, chief of the Civilian Defense Division, U. S. Army chemical warfare service, rioc!aved in s science forum address iliat in 1939 and 1940 the typical high-explosive bomb weighed 100 poundF. ' "Occasionally," he said. "500- pound bombs were used, but these were rare in early stages of the v/av. "Today, however, 2,000-pound bombs are not uncommon; and sizes up "to three and even four thousand pounds are being dropped. As better bombers are developed, the proportion of larger bombs definitely increases." The Washington expert said structural strains imposed by these huge demolition bombs can be besl appreciated by considering the optimum effects they produce. These effects are three in number — all coming in split-second succession, and each having its own direct influence on the design of protective shelters. List the effects, Fisher said: "The first is impact—the shock imposed when a mass of a ton or more, moving at a speed o£ a thousand feet per second, meets a stationary body. The explosive reaction exposed the bomb case to heat as high as 36.000 degrees Fahrenheit; it distends and splits the case into a shower of sharp- edged splinters or fragments. "Thus we have the second effect —fragmentation. The flying white- hot fragments are prope'lled initially at speeds as high as 7,000 feet per second, which is well over twice the velocity of most military projectiles," the speaker said. "The third, or blast, is effectively dissipated by a well-designed shelter,'.' Fisher continued. "Yet as much as 35 per cent of the kinetic energy developed by the exploding bomb goes into a 'blast, or the ultra-rapid displacement of air to accommodate the transformation of T. N. T. into gas."

Historic Drum Still Used After 5 Years SAX FRANCISCO, Feb. 12. (U.S. —A drum whose rolling beat helped inspire George Washington's frost-bitter, forces at Valley Forge is still being used here by Charles J. Bessette, a recent arrival in San Francispo. The instrument has been through four wars since the American Revolution. Bessette once used it in recital, at Carnegie Hall. The drum is insured for 85,000 by the Smithsonian Institution, which will inherit it when Bessette dies. According to Bessette, the drum was one of 90 ordered bv Gen. Washington from a cabinet-maker in Flushing, L. I., during the Revolution. A fire destroyed all but nine of them. Bessette's is the only one still in use. The'others are in museums and private collections. "It came into my family in 1348, during the Mexican war, when it was -given to my grandfather's uncle," Bessette said. "My grandfather, Tommy Bessette, carried it in the Civil war, and my father. Mose, took it through the Spanish-American war. "My father drummed on it for V S2JT C *«»*l* Cyi..*-r» nn ,3 -..1^,,_» ihe World war came along "he ?ave it to me and I took it to France with the 'Fighting'69th'."- James Gorrell of Donegal.

Y. <U.PJ—Black- outs are just a .headache for Harry Torrillo. who works for the Department of Public Works. His job is to extinguish all of Kenmore's 317 gas street lights in case of a blackout. Kenmore missed complete electrification when depression forced the village to curtail expenses. TorilJo must start turning out the lights about five hours before the familiar electric arcs are extinguished in the village. This seems bad enough, but putting the lights on again is even worse. It takes about two days. Loosens Up Thick Choking Phlegm Spend a few cents today at Mark Hali^L- D ^ U 5 Stores. Bowen's Drug store. Lubooco. Drus Co..
