He could speak loudly enough to be heard by 20,000 peo- nle. Actor David Garrick once said Vhitefield's oratorical power was so great he could reduce an audience to tears merely by the way he pronounced "Mesopotamia."

Left over from the Bikini tests are several battleships and cruisers, almost a dozen destroyers, a half dozen submarines and a variety of transports. ' Formidable Blast The "Baker" test in Bikini lagoon produced formidable results; two battleships, a big carrier, three submarines and some small craft were sunk in that single 'blast of one weapon. . But scientists and m 1 1 1 1 ar y leaders believe a great deal of the destructive force of Ihe bomb was lost because of Uie shallow depth of Ihe lagoon--about 180 feet at the deepest point. A great deal' of the bomb's power was expended in the spectacular al though tactically useless column of water thrown up by the blast. Scientists believe a deep underwater shot might produce" far greater damage over a much wider area. This is because the full Blasting power of tile bomb would e held within the water and the shock transmitted to the hulls of ships. An inkling of what under- vater shock could do was had at Bikini. Some-ships which escaped actual sinking were seriously lamaged internally. Engines were wrecked, bulkheads and equip lent torn loose and thrown vio- cntly about. Had men been in he ships they would have been illed or seriously injured.
