SEASONED, DEPENDABLE MEN ..IN SUBMARINES ONLY USED Only seasoned sailors and very «submarine men' got quite a shak- dopendable men are allowed to, train for submarine service in the i. U. S. Navy, relates the Northwest naval Recruiter. Tney must be dependable because one mistake, may cost the sailor his life and” 'inssihlv the lives of a number of his shipmatcs. The training starts With learning how to escape in the Momscn Lung. It combines the spectacular features of a death-defying circus stunt, a la- horatory demonstration in aqua- tic physics, in a super-colossal test tube that towers 138 feet in the air. pounds and is made largely of rubber covered with stocking. etc.. and was invented and worked out by Charles B. Momsen. a Naval officer. assisted by others. He proved its efficiency by a record ascent from a depth of 370 feet. This would be unbelieviahle were it not authentic. The pressure. in- 1 creases about one half pound for each foot of depth. The actual pressure per square inch at 370 feet is 164 pounds. What can’t the human body take? The train‘. ee does not go down to this depth, : needless to say. “Don't stay down more than a i . couple of minutes the first time,” the student is advised. “Just find :out for yourself how easy it is , to breathe under water. Next time stay under for five minutes.“ Every man in the submarine service must prove his fitness by taking a yearly test in the lu'ng~ 'training tank. An ascent faster than 50 feet a minute is dangerous. The pressure has to adjust itself slowly inside and outside the body. The average submarine can re- main submerged for about 36 hours without replenishing its air supply. The only connection one compartment has with' "another, is by a small water-tight door, which weighs 300 pounds. Should the vessel tilt in a direction 0p- positc to that in which the door closeskbrute force‘ would be re- quired to close the door. This was the situation'that confronted the electrician on the "Squalus" on May 23, 1939. His timely display of physical strength in closing the (lOor before the rush of water hit it, saved 33 men from death in the forward compartments. Every submarine crew is indoc- trinated in the law that quick decisions must be followed by im- mediate action. Emergency drills accustom thc men to shut these water-tight doors and secure them in a matter of solit seconds. The most important single instrument aboard is the depth gauge. A needle on the dial indicates the depth in feet. The description of the Army “men who took three ,Naval offi-" cers up in an airplane and gave, them a “ride.” is a classic. The ing up in the planeride. Not to be out-done, they invited the Ar- my airmen to have a .ride in a submarine. The hatches were se- cured, valves opened, gauges read and all hands were at station. All too soon, they had reached a depth of 300 feet. The boat was in im- minent danger of collapsing. A valve had stuck . . . All were ter- rified. After what seemed like ages, the needle» indicated the boat was slowly rising. Finally the boat broke the surface, the hatches were thrown open to the sky, and the three Army visitors The. Momsen lung weighs 141.; j joyfully clambered out on deck. The vessel was still quietly moor- ed to the dock; it had not moved. a foot. ’TheBulldczer, In the "blitzkrieg" of a forest fire, the big bulldozer is the coun- terpart of a tank in modern war. Powered by diesel thunderbolts. the huge “cats” crawl alongythe flanks of the fires, cutting swaths through brush“ and ferns and stumps and trees to bare the non-combustible earth in a flame- stopping ring. Where today’s tanks are primarily weapons of Offense, the “cats” play a major role in defense against “lightning war" in the woods. They move with awesome might ,i-trees fall before their blades like brittle sticks. Contemptuous- 1y they fling aside thick brush and. root out big stumps. Some- times, ‘it’s true, a huge.and hoary .snag may slow the. "dozens" calm. certain advance. He but. rumbles a bit decperin histhroat, lowers his great snout and plows on" re- lentlessly. Even if Some forest giant does bar his way immov- ably, the “cat” is not undénc. A springing whirl to right and left. a, circling movement, ,fast and without waste motion, and the Obstacle is left behind, still stand- ing, perhaps, but beaten and alone and looking a little silly in the monster’s wake. . , And the men who drive the “cats” are truly a race apart. Big, like the brutes they control. are most of =them;-proud of their charges andiproud of‘their jobs. Well they might be. None stands higher in his sphere than a good “cat” man. None needs more sta- mina and experience and cunning for the Job of fighting forest fire. And none, it ~might be added. commands a greater,- more pun- gent 0!‘ more picturesque variety of language When something goes, wrong To watch and hear the driving of a b1g“'cat” is to witness a fine meetmg of machine might and man’s mind. In their task, a man and his monster become one, roaring With irresistible furythru the fires smother. World. Shelton Valley News Brevities By Una ‘Vinsor Shelton, Valley, August 6~ers.
