Not the least of the dangers attending the business of be ing a mariner has been that ot losing one's bearings while at sea. Time was when the sailor's life was more re plete with danger than in these days of advanced maritime efficiency. But though the ocean terrors were elim inated one by one until there remained little to be afraid of, there still was the disconcerting possibility of a ship losing itself; of fogs and compass ir regularities; of mishaps to instru ments and disabilities of steering mechanisms. Thus every so often a liner or freighter or a warship was re ported "lost in the fog" or "out of its course." The United States naval communica tion service has perfected a system of triangulation that has eliminated the possibility of further maritime reports of this sort. It is not the discovery of any one man. Indeed, it truly can not be classified as a discovery. It Is simply a perfection of a basic ruleof position finding that has formed the fundn mental of range determination in the army and a straightforward geometric theorum concerning inter secting lines. , . System Explained. 1 The perfected system has been in use in the American navy for a year. At 44 Whitehall street the system was explained briefly by attaches of the New York district central controlling radio station, j It is to be ajssumed that a ship is a hundred miles off the middle Atlan tic coast. She has lost her bearings Her navigators are unable to tell her latitude and. longitude. At once the bewildered ship's radio flashes the American coast a demand to be told the data she needs most: "Where am IT The request coming within the sec tor for which the New York district central controlling radio station is re sponsible, the appeal is received by five radio compass stations located at Montauk Point, L. L; Fire Island, Rockaway Beach, Sandy Hook and Mfttitoloking, N. J. Each of these stations is connected with 44 Whitehall street by telegraph and telephone. These radio compass stations cannot communicate with the "lost" ship, as they are receivers only and not transmitters. However, each of the radio compass stations notifies the central station . In Whiteall street that a ship within the district Is de manding to know its location. Imme diately i the central station radios the bewildered mariner to continue flash Ing his call letters for at least , thirty seconds. And at the same time the radio compass stations begin obtain ing bearings on the ship. Then Its Simple. The operators in the five stations turn their compass wheels until each has an accurate bearing. These five readings are transmitted to the cen tral station where, on a huge chart, the five readings are combined. Each reading will indicate a certain num ber of miles between the ship and the station that took the bearing. It is a relatively simple matter, then, to project these lines upon the chart un til the five lines intersect. And that point of Intersection is the location of the calling ship. Acknowledgment from the ship completes the operation Every American port is now being safeguarded by just such systems oi radio compasses and central stations. Within a few months, at any point along the coast, marirfers will be abl to approach channels, reefs and shoal waters with an absolute assurance that they will not proceed too near, nor yet exercise such great caution as. to throw them out of their course And thus also is the danger attending fog banks eliminated. , Lieutenant Commander R. B. Coff man, U. S. N., is superintendent of th central station at 44 Whitehall street Lieut. M. W. Arps, U. S. N., is it direct . charge of the New York dis trict. Just a Quiet Smoke, But It Shocked Some. Topeka, Kan. Clouds of smoke coming . from the wom en's waiting room at the Rock Island depot here caused the patrons of the room to make an investigation. Over In the cor ,ner, smoking a clay pipe peacV fully, was an aged woman, all unconscious of the excitement she was causing. When the ma-: tron told her it was not the place to smoke,; the aged wom an calmly went ,'outside the de pot and completed"5 her smoke. She said she came from the mountains of Kentucky and was on her way to Nebraska. ADMINISTRATOR'S . NOTICE. 4 Having; qualified as administrator of-thev estate qft H.
