RECLAIM MANY SUNKEN SHIPS
Hundreds of Vessels in British Waters
Have Been Salvaged-Possibility
of Raising the Lusitania.
Most welcome is the announcement
from London that since January, 1915,
407 ships sunk by the Germans in
British waters have been salvaged;
147 of them, by Improved piethods, in
five nonthst of the present year.
Britain's coast, like our own, is
edged by a broad belt of shallow wa
ter. For 200 miles of the channel's
length no spot reaches a depth of 100
fathoms; much of it is quite shallow,
which accounts for the chop that makes
so many who cross it briefly unhappy.
From our own Norfolk one gets well
out of sight of land before reaching
water too deep for salvago operations.
Depth lerIn ases more rapidly off the
Irish coast, but even the Lusitania
lies near ie 50-fat homn line, below the
shatter of the storm, yet near enough
the surfne so that many practical
wreckers live sai(d thatt it would be
possible, though exceedingly dillicul t,
to bring her forth to a nautical resur
That some things can he done as
well as others our engineers showed
when they raised the U-boats' biggest
victim along our coast, the 1Herbert
Pratt, and brought her safe to shore.
What the "Improved methods" used of'
England may be we shall probably not
know until after the war. That they
are cheating the murderous subna
rines of their prey in so many cases is

It seemus that the tendency every

of long, wearisomie working hours.
Where such consideration was not
given workers in peace times war step

great influence. Dr. Woods Ilutchin

there by the business man11t1 of today.
He showed that the biggest mnen of the
country are those who usually play as
hard as they work, and who devote

thousands of acres of dry or cut-over
land are still to be converted into
