at the school auditorium last Fri
day by the students of the third,
fourth, sixth, seventh, eighth, and

the following teachers: Misses Lil

way. The pageant was historical and
educational. It was a continued story
of history from Columbus up to the
present day. The students were well
trained and presented each scene in an
effective way to an over-flowing
house. Some say it was the largest
crowd that had ever gathered at the
school auditorium. So many could

suitable and up-to-date. The main

Monday morning the address was
delivered by Professor Currie of Da
vidson College. Dr. Currie said that
the momentous problem or task of
the day is that of outlawing war.
He said that once the ministry led,
but that it had lost its leadership by
wasting its time and energies upon
questions of little or no moment; that
the bar succeeded to the leadership
but became intent upon gain and fell
| from its high estate; then the teach
ers became the leaders of public
thought and progress, but that they
began to think too much about where
we came from and too little about
where we are going and leadership
has been assumed by the business men
of the country. He hopes that the
momentous problems of the time will
be solved by the business men.
The Senior Play
On Monday evening the most en
joyable and probably most success
| ful event of the series occurred, when
the play “Nothing but the Truth” was
most creditably staged. The cast of
characters comprised Roland Goldston,
Sam Beard, Brooks Snipes, Lester
Farrell, Grady Snipes, Mary Lou
Burns, Mary Dell Bynum, Louise
Brooks, Carolyn Burns, Mary Sue
Poe, and Nannie Lanius.
Roland Goldston had’ the part of
the hero Robert Bemnett, who had
bet a friend ten thousand dollars
that he could tell the truth and noth
ing but the truth for 24 hours. He
told it, but old man Trouble soon got
busy and there were many compli
cations. Roland has been particularly
praised for the successful manner in
which he played his part,* but the
whole performance was creditable.
There was an admission charge of
fifty cents, and $185.00 accrued as the
consequence, which goes to school im
It has been apparently a success

community goes with Principal Nolan
and his corps of teachers as they

NEW TORCH MELTS
STEEL UNDER WATER
Will Be Used to Open Hull of
New York.— A torch that can melt
and cut steel at any depth under wa
ter has been perfected by the United
States navy, and will be used in open
ing the sunken submarine S-51, now
on the floor of the ocean off Block is
land, Commander Ellsberg of the
Brooklyn navy yard has told a re
Such a torch Is hailed as a valuable
aid in cutting through the steel plates
of submarines and submarine compart
ments. It was the lack of an ade
quately powerful torch that prevented
the piercing of the submarine S-51 last
fall, after it was rammed amidships
by the steamer City of Rome in Sep
tember. At that time acetylene torches
were used, and they were practically
useless when forced to pressure of
more than 20 pounds under water.
The new torch consists of jets of
hydrogen and oxygen which emanate
from two separate sleeves to the tip
of the torch. From a third sleeve
comes compressed air. When the com
pressed air is applied at any depth
under water It forces an air bubljie to
surround the hydrogen and oxygen.
Thus protected from the water, the
fire within the bubble of air is injected
into the steel. It usually reaches a
temperature of 5,000 degrees Fahren
heit, according to Commander Ells
The steel plate melts. From the
time the flame is applied the steel
plate, usually an inch thick or less
on submarines, can be cut at the rate
of a foot a minute.
The navy has been experimenting
on the torch for several years. When
the submarine S-51 sank, the torch
was in the experimental stage.
With the aid of the torch, it will
be possible to get into the innermost
compartments of the submarine. Holes
will be burned in the hull of the sub
marine, as well as in the walls of
the compartments, and the com
pressed air will be forced into the boat,
thus driving out the water and mak
ing the craft more buoyant.
The bodies of 24 men are still in
the submarine. It is believed, and these
will be taken out probably before the
submarine is lifted to the surface.
Working Model of Solar

the solar system which, according to
Professor F. R. Moulton, head of the

j Arzic was educated as a mechanical
engineer at the Technical School of

four years’ labor in the little shop at

An electric-lighted ball represents
the sun in Arzic’s machine. The ma
chine is motivated by a clock, regis
tering central time, the day, month and
year, and operating 110 gears that con
trol movements ranging in time from
one minute to 12,500 years. Thus, the
position of the models at a given sec
ond corresponds to that of the plan
ets. and the movements of the moon
around the earth and the earth around
the sun are portrayed with correct pe
riods and eccentricities. The entire
mechanism is mounted on an elliptical
frame nine l'eet in diameter.
“In my opinion the machine is a
very remarkable mechanism,” said
Professor Moulton. “It makes particu
larly clear those features which are
found difficult to teach.”
