FOOTBALL GAMES IN FRANCE
Director Anguish of Paris Division of
Y. M. C. A, Makes Request for
Pair of Pants.
Judging from a request made in the
Tar's edition of an American newspa
per recently, there is going to be a lot
of football played in France this fall.
The Hindenburg line is not the only
one that is going to be smashed over
J. L.' Anguish, director of athletics
for the Paris division of the'Y. M. C.
A recently asked for a pair of foot
ball pants through the columns of .a
newspaper. He explained that the pair
of pants was wanted to serve as a put
tern from which lie hopes to have 12,
000 pairs made for the use of the sol
diers. Inasmuch as the -great football stars
nt the past decade from the E:
West, North and South are with the
American expeditionary force i broad,
there should be some real all-America ti
games staged behind the lines soon.
That is, if Mr. Anguish gets that pair
of pants for a pattern.
Stellite, Metal That Will
Not Rust Hardness and
Other Qualities of Steel
Everybody knows that metals under
go changes through the influence of
Oiygon and moisture from the air
these two bodies being always ready
for chemical business. Therefore, as
everybody also knows, steel knives and
other familiar utensils require contin
ual cleaning because they rust so eas
ily. Steel is even more susceptible to
rust than iron.
The chemists' problem in this case
has been to make a metal which is per
manent and will not rust, having, at
the same time, the hardness and other
qualities of steel. That is, a metal as
"nolle" or permanent as gold and as
hiad and strong as steel.
El wood Haynes, a member of the
American Chemical society, relates in
Metallurgical and Chemical Engineer
ing of a long series of experiments
which he made during a period of
many years, especially in alloys of co
balt, chromium, tungsten and molybdo
num. He finally succeeded in ma kins
some of these metals so hard that they
can scratch any- steel in existence. He
has given the name stellite to the se
ries. Stellite may be indefinitely heat
ed without showing oxidation, except
for the fact that the surface takes on
i permanent blue color. Lathe tools,
milling cutters, saws, drawing dies,
boring tools, drills, etc., have bceu
made from stellite as well as surgical
and dental instruments which have
been placed on the market. Table
spoons and small spoons of stellite
have been in use for six years and
I hey may last, it appears, for a thou
sand years more without tarnishing.
