Mar. 17—bast 'week Tuesday morning at 1:30 the Ledyard German Evangelical pastor, the' Rev. Martin John'Dammann, died at a hospital at Fairmont, where he had been a patient since January 10. On January 20 he underwent a major operation, followed by a second one a week later. Following this hemorrhage of a brain vessel caused him to lapse into coma, from which he rallied at times, but never fully recovered. He grew weaker from day to day, and death was peaceful. The Rev. Mr. Dammann was born at Freeport, 111., April 20, 1859, and was nearly 72 at death. His parents later moved to Iowa, and the family was at Muscatlne for a short time,, after which a change was made to Newton.

First Prize Essay Second Prize Ess Algona'g Artificial lee-Making Plant By Hazel Keeling. I wonder Just how many people In Algona | know how the ice they use Is made. Several j weeks ago the Physics class had the opportunity j of visiting the ice plant and discovering -how the j fundamental principle behind the manufactur- i ing of artificial Ice is carried on. Thl8_maklng i of artificial tee Is an.appllcatlon of the principle j that when certain liquids change to a vapor or j gas heat Is drawn- from surrounding objects, j thus reducing their temperature. i Compressed air from a large tank just inside ! the door Is used to start the large Diesel engine, j which is used to run the plant. Ammonia gas I is used In the plant because of Its low boiling i point (34"C), and because it has a high heat of | vaporization or it takes a large number of cal- I cries of heat to change the liquid ammonia back j to a gae, and therefore absorbs a large amount ! of heat before it changes back to a gas. ! The gas is compressed by pistons which are ! operated by the power produced by the engine, i The ammonia is still in the form of -a gas when I It leaves the compressor, but It is very hot be! cause of heat taken up during 'the process of ex| panslon. The hot ammonia gas runs through a ! . system or coil of pipes. In the inner pipe Is cold j.' 'water and in the outer pipe the gas. By this I method of having, the cold water running | 'through a small' pipe inside the large the am! monla gives off heat not only to the water but ! to the air outside as well. As the gas gradually I liquifies it trickles down into a large tank at the I bottom of the colls. j The liquid ammonia is then forced under enor- ! . moiis pressure through a small pipe along the | ceiling over to the opposite end of the room I where it enters an expansion valve. Here the I I pressure is reduced and the liquid enters anoth- | ' er pipe which passes back and forth through the | brine tank containing cans of fresh water which ! are to be frozen Into ice. .-.-In this pipe the am! monla expands Into a gas, .the heat required for ! this process being absorbed from the brine ! which ler'then able to absorb more heat from the i cans of fresh water. ! When the ammonia has gone through the en- j tire tank it is led away through a much larger | pipe because the ammonia gas has a larger vol- j ume. | The part-gas part-liquid ammonia, is then j piped, through the ice storage room so that Its 1 power to still absorb a little more heat may not j be wasted. The ammonia gas Is then drawn I back to the compressor which acts as a pump, I forcing the liquid, which has been compressed, ! through the pipes, and then drawing it back to ! be compressed again 'after it has gone through I the system. i One-third of the total number of cans of Ice are emptied and refilled with fresh water every twelve hours. The water In these cans is kept in continual motion. Pipes of compressed air run to and fro between the cans with connecting pipes to each can. This compressed air . keeps ^the water in constant motion so that only the pure water freezes and that containing the mineral matter, which has come out of the solution, stays in. the center. When almost all the water is frozen the mineral water is drawn off and fresh water let In. This fresh water has a small per cent of mineral matter in it— but only a small per cent. This Is why the center of the block of ice Is opaque. The blocks of Ice are completely frozen in thirty-six hours. ..The cans containing the ice are then taken from the tank of, brine and placed in a trough I >vhere. warm water is run over the cans until the cake of ice slides out; The cakes of ice are then put in the storage room for future use : Ammonia liquid piped from the tank of am- I monia under the coils enters an expansion valve ! just outside the door of the. storage room The ! liquid then circulates through a system of pipes i in the storage room under reduced pressure and ; when it has absorbed a sufficient amount of i heat It Is drawn back to the compressor | From the ice plant we next go to the main 1 building .where the ice cream is made, in the ! basement of this building is another smaller . ammonia plant. The only difference between , this one and the one In the ice plant Is that this | small one is run by a small electric motor In j place of a Diesel engine. ! The ammonia is compressed by pistons' In the | -compression chamber. The- hot ammonia gae I ' passes through an oil trap on its way to the | cooling coil. The- purpose of this oil trap is to j catch all oil that may have vaporized during the j compression of the ammonia. If the oil were j allowed to go on into the pipes, they would be- I come corroded' and thus lower the efficiency of i the plant, . | TJie ammonia gas la piped through the cooling | coll and gradually liquifies as it did in the other j piai)t. ,.*'.; , The yjater used in the cooling coll l s 6U pplled from a large tank.

The power required to run i' compressor is supplied- by a large Diesel emtln,- i Leaving the condensing colls, the ammo i flows on through an expansion valve where i email quantity is ^allowed to flow through at. time Into a system of pipes of larger diameto providing more room for expansion and reducl.,' the pressure. -These pipes are in the form »l coils In the tank.'of salt brine. Here the am.' monla expands Into a gas, the heat required for the process being absorbed from the brine Thi' latter, though It does not freeze, is cooled'untj- its temperature is several degrees below He* freezing point of fresh water. The water whlth • Is.to be frozen is placed in cans the shape and : size of the desired -cake of ice and Immenei)' among these colls along the floor. A steady stream of compressed air Is constantly directed into -these can* to keep up a circulation of the water. Since pure water freezes at a higher' temperature than that containing mineral mat-? ter, that along the .edges freezes first, while th water containing minerals is carried toward the center, pumped out, and fresh water introduced to take its place. Since the water which Is pumped in contains some minerals, the area ot I white or opaque Ice is accounted fpr. About one-'-| third of the cans are filled at twelve hour Intervals so that some cakes can be removed whll* others are being, filled and still others are jui beginning to freeze. About thirty-six hours are: required to completely freeze a cake of artlficlsl- Ice. The pipe entering the brine tank is coated with a heavy covering of frost due to the a-" ceedingly low temperature of its contents. The one leaving the tank has a much thinner frost; coating since' more heat has been absorbed and is being carried through it. From here the ammonia Is piped through the storage room back I*. the compressor. A large tank of liquid ammonia extending*' full length of one wall of the plant keeps thi' flow of the fluid constant, increasing the cooling capacity, To remove the cakes of ice from the cans, the ; Algona plant has a regular hoisting device to llfl'j. them from the floor to a place where enough hot;. water is sprayed over them to loosen them from/ the cans from which they slide down a chutf; into the storage room, where ammonia along the ceiling keep . the temperature i»o^ Since these pipes are placed along the celling they are particularly effective, for the heafl, cool air circulates 1 to the floor around the stored; ice, and the hot air goes to the celling to to.' cooled by the ammonia in the pipes. As the. frost collects on these pipes from time to tlnM", It Is knocked off and shoveled out of the room so that'the ammonia wlllhave a greater cooling effect. i From these pipes the ammonia is sucked «S drawn back to the .'compressor, where It ta unedf over again, . I The cool water, which, during the process fcaiJ -been warmed somewhat, is pumped up, cooled,;! and used again inside the pipes for the samta purpose. .. . The plant also has another system, very =«-. i liar'to the one Just described,-which is used l»l making .ice cream. Just 'above the compressor! is a tank whose purpose It 'to catch all surplujf oil and grease-from the-machinery to, keep |1 from corroding the circulatory pipes and loff«"i] ing. their efficiency; ' "" All of the cream use* py the local plant is I teurlzed. After pasteurization it-is run throi a cooling coil. Next it is put in the mixer v the other necessary ingredients, and when mushy stage is reached, it is put in the hard* ing room in containers which are set on shelve^ • composed of coiled pipes of the cooling ey where the hardening.process is completed. • temperature of this robin is very low.
