Terente Doctors Discover Extract te
Terente, March 23. Discovery of an
active paucrcatlc extract, which It is
hoped will prolong the lives of persons
suffering from diabetes, was announced
te the medical profession yesterday from
the medical research laboratories of the
University of Terente.
Twe young doctors, F. G. Brnntlng
and C. II. Best, directing the experi

records. Then, by Injecting under the
skin of si ven human beings suffering

discovered through animal experimenta

brought about in the patients, the sci
The experimenters de net claim that
the new discovery will effect a cure, but

WORK IS RUSHED
Launching in May Frem Cam
den Ways Expected te
Be a Feat
NIGHT AND DAY SHIFTS ON IT
The big calsen, which will rest be
neath the Delaware lllver Bridge pier
en the Philadelphia side, is beginning
te take form en the waya of the New
Yerk Shipbuilding Company, at Cam
den. When complete it will be sent
down the ways and towed te Its proper
position at the end of Pier 11, North
The launching will be n feat. The
base of the caisson Is tee large te slip
down the ways, se a special bottom will
be prepared which will be removed after
It is afloat.
In the meantime. 125 men are busy
rushing it te completion during the day
and twenty carpenters weric en u at
night. It is expected that It will be
completed by May 1.
The lower part of the caisson Is of
steel. All four edges are V-shaped
and sharp, se that they will sink down
into the river bed nnd protect the work werk
lng chnmber within. The "V" will be
filled with concrete. That chamber is
divided Inte five bulkheads by great fir
timbers. It is reefed with steel, which
will be leaded with concrete, and is
nine and one-half feet high. In that
space the men who drill and dig In the
Tlver bottom will work.
At first, when the material te be
taken out Is soft, it will be forced out
through n six-inch pipe by the air
pressure of the chamber. The pressure
will be about thirty -five pounds greater
than normal. Then when mere solid
stuff is encountered It will be dug and
lifted te the surface in buckets through
ten air locks which have been especially
repared se that the pressure at the
etifua Is net lessened.
It will net be easy for the workers
far below the water's surface. Te get
down will be a task which, if net prop
erly done, may cause death or Injury
of the laborer. First he will pass down
a shaft te the great air lock, which
closely resembles a large round boiler.
After entering the steel deer Is closed
and air pressure gradually increased.
When It equals that of the submerged
chamber u deer at the ether end Is
opened nnd, passing through another
concrete-lined shuft nnd down through
u "jump hole." the worker is en the
job. There will be three such air locks
two large ones for general use nnd
one smaller one for emergency.
Crawling up from the base chamber
through one of the jumn holes, the In
terior Is a network of steel beams.
Although the outer walls nre of wooden
timbers, all the supports arc steel, se as
te give the greatest safety te these far
below. The chamber will ultimately be
filled solid with concrete and will rest'
permanently en the river bed. The nlr
locks and supports will remain em
bedded In the concrete,- fur it trill be
cheaper te leave them there than try te
