Visit City Water Works, Local
Dairy Plant and Sulphuric
MAKE INTERESTING STUDY
Did you know that, if for some reason,
the water supply were cut off, Greens
boro would have only enough water to
last for two days? This was one of the
interesting facts that the Creative Chem
istry class learned when they visited
the city water works recently.
They found also that the city uses
about five million gallons of water
every 24 hours, and that the two reser
voirs hold about 21 million gallons of
The group also visited a local dairy
plant, where they saw how the milk re
ceived from the farmers is carefnlly in
spected and how payment for it is made
on a basis of percentage of butterfat
found rather than on a basis of volume.
The group also visited the sulphuric
acid plant where 600 tons of sulphuric
acid are produced weekly, and where
they learned that the body of a man,
falling into the chambers where the acid
is produced, would be dissolved in a
very short time.
Reports on the different plants vis
ited have been made and are being col
lected in a scrapbook as part of the
necessary requirements of the course.
Experiments are also part of the class
program, and the students are preparing
their own laboratory manuals. Some
of the most interesting experiments
were related to the making of soap and
cleansing powders, etching glass, and
removing iron rust.
Out of 20 students, ten made A’s, nine
made B’s, and one made C during the
last report period.
