Uncle Sam Sets Example
in Safety-First Crusade
Uncle Sam, through the medium of
a safety-first special train, is showing
the people of the country how the
various departments of the govern
ment are guarding their lives and
property. Secretary of the Interior
Franklin K. Lane is responsible for
the unique exhibit.
The train, which is composed of
twelve steel cars, carries exhibits ol
apparatus used by the various fed
eral bureaus, and each of the bureaus
has representatives on the train to
give motion-picture lectures depicting
the part they are p1"- ing in the safety
The bureau of mines, department of
the interior, shows the modern life
saving apparatus which it has been
responsibla for introducing in the
mines of the country. This bureau has
as one of its duties the safeguarding
of the lives of more than a million
men who work under the ground. The
statistics gathered by the bureau
show tnat since it was created in 1910
there has been a steady decrease in
the death rate among the men, the
saving of life each year amounting to
between 500 and 1,000 over previous
years. The bureau is also charged
with the development of mere efficient
methods of mining and the more effi
cient use of minerals. Some time ago
it developed a new process for the
manufacture of radium from carnotite
ore, which reduces the cost of making
radium to such a point that it is j
thought hospitals can afford to pur
chase a supply for medical uses. An
exhibit of the wonderful radium is
shown on the train.
The reclamation service, depart
ment of the interior, which has charge
of the reclamation of 40,000,000 acres
of land in the great American desert,
shows hy colored transparencies what
it is doing toward making homes for
millions of people.
An interesting feature outside of
safety first is the exhibit of the na
tional parks service of the interior de
partment. In one of the cars is a pic
ture gallery, large transparencies in
rich color showing the range and
magnificence of the incomparable
scenery of the national parks.
Tho forest service and the weather
bureau of the department of agricul
ture, the coast guard service and the
public health service of the depart
ment of the treasury, the war and the
navy departments, the American Red
Cro^s society and the interstate com
merce commission are all represented
by interesting displays.

j Federal Tests of Electric Lamps Gov
ern Manufacturers and Other
Uncle Sam buys 1,250,000 electric
lamps every year and to be sure that
he gets his money's worth he has them
all tested and inspected by the bureau
of standards, department of commerce.
The specifications under which these
Hmps are tested are published by the
bureau and are recognized as stand
ard by the manufacturers as well as
by the government. They are used
also by many other purchasers of
The lamps are first inspected for
mechanical and physical defects, this
being done at the factory by bureau
inspectors. Representative samples
are selected and sent to the bureau,
where they are burned on life test at
a specified efficiency, at which they
must give a certain number of hours
of life, depending upon the kind of
lamp. About five thousand lamps are
thus burned on test each year.
For this test great care must be
taken in the measurement of the
lamps and in the adjustment and regu
lation of the life-test voltage.
