II WESTLtY CASS OF j j.' : J REMODELING FURNITURE 'i wwii'"'" " 11 "'"" imii ii in wi ii i imm m i urn iMirr 'ii' t r Trr - w-t SALE PUTNAM ENGINEER BIG BUMP ZR-2 Wesley Cass, son of C. N. Cass, Fi 1 i I til Tj 1 f:, i I ? " . fV a resident of Putnam county, living On the St. Johns river below Palatka ig a member of the detachment which was sent to England by the Navy Department recently to bring the giant, dirigible ZR2, formerly the E38, to the United States this sum mer or fall. It will be interesting to Palatkans to know that the Gem City will be represented on this, the largest rigid airship owned by the United States government, and one of the largest in the world. Mr. . Cass spent much of his time in Pa latka while residing near here and before he enlisted in the :.avy. i He entered the navy about four Ijears ago and has gained p.v.no tion tfter promotion in rapid suc 'cesion until he has achieved a rat .'ing uf first class engineer in the navy. When he was sent to Eng land, he won his way to the position of second engineer on .the world's ' greatest airship. It is an honor to be a member of the first crew of the United States Navy to cross the At lantic in,a dirigible, and the fact ! that Mr. Cass is- to be second engi neer makes it still more impressive. The ZR2 is supposed to leave En- ' eland sometime this month on her ! transatlantic voyage. Her sailing date has been changed twice and it is not known exactly when she will j get her final sailing orders, but they are expected soon. Wesley Case and his father, C. N. Cass, have lived in Putnam coun ty for about eight or nine years, ' moving to the county from Berlin, , Pennsylvania. What the Ship Looks Like. i i A recent issue of Aerial Age gives the following description of the ZR2 ' on which Mr. Cass will be third in . command: . "The R38, which will be known in ' ' the United States as ZR2 is now al most ready to undergo her first trials "Next month, if her trials are completed satisfactorily, the Ameri can crew now being trained in Eng land on R80 will take her over and ; ' fly her across the Atlantic to New "York, and then across tVie United ."States to San Francisco. At full j speed the ship has an endurance of ' 6,000 miles, so that it should be com- ; 'paratively easy to make the flight i successfully wh only one descent J at New York. ' j "The desig-i of R38 was de:iJed ' tpon by the Admiralty in the spring i jot 1918, and construction was slart- ! -eo by Messrs. Shori Bros at C.-.rd- ! ington, in November the same year. i Later, in April, 1920, when the Air I Ministry took over the works, work '. (was continued by the Ministry, B.38 is the largest rigid yet con- structed in any country. Its capac ! ity is larger by some 300,000 cu. ft. ! than that of the ex-German airship L71. "R38 was designed for naval pur : ' poses, first consideration being giv ; " en to the attainment of the greatest possible ceiling the experience of Germany in the use of airships for scouting and night raiding having demonstrated the necessity for the ability to climb rapidly to high alti tudes. "It is intended that after trials have been carried out and it is ex . pected that these may take place any moment now and the airship has been handed over to the American Government, the American crew which is now completing airship training in this country will, after a few further flights to, accustom themselves to the behavior of the airship, fly across the Atlantic to a base in America, where a shed has been built to accommodate the ship and where, it is understood, a moor ing mast is also to be erected. "The main dimensions and char acteristics of R38 are as follows: Lencth 69 j ft Diameter 85 ft. 4 in, Capacity 2,700,009 cu- it, Total lift under normal conditions 83 tons. Total h.p 2,100 Eneines 6 Sunbeam "Cossacks'" of 350 h. p. Normal crew (officers and men) 28-30 Armament, 14 Lewis guns, 1 1 pounder automatic, 4 520-lb bombs, 6 230-Ib bombs. The disposal lift, i. ., the useful lifting power available for petrol and oil, ; crew, stores, armaments, ballast, etc., as originally designed, was in excess of 50 tons aa against SO tons in the case of R33 and R34, but some reduction of this figure will follow from various addition which have been made, such as bow moor ing gear to permit of the airship's being moored to a mast.
