IN BRASS MILLS
1,000 on Furlough to Re
lieve Serious Shortage
The United State* has been called
upon to prevent a famine in bras*. A#
flrst aid to overcome the serious
shortage 1,006 soldiers have been sent
from Camp Devens to the mills in
Bridgeport. Waterbury and Ansonia.
Conn. About 30 per cent of the mill
workers have been stricken with In
fluenza. and the brass manufacturers
state that they are short 9.000 men in
addition to those ill.
The 1.000 soldiers who were given
the opportunity of aiding in reducing
the brass shortage were, upon their
application, granted an Indefinite fur
lough which temporarily removes
them from the army pay rolls and
permits them to accept positions in
the foundries at civilian wages. They
are subject to recall to the army
whan ever their service is needed.
At the close of August official fig
ures compiled by the War Indus
tries Board showed that the daily
shortage in sheet bars was 1,450,000
pounds and the rod brass daily short
age 140,000 pounds. The daily re
quirements are 1220.060 pounds of
sheet bars and 1,140,000 of rod bars.
More Brass Battoaa.
Three measures of relief which are
now In efTect are: Release of sol
diers from camps for work in the
brass foundries, abolishment of an
brass buttons on uniforms; and
.sharper restrictions on all estimates
for proposed uses of brass.
Even with the curtailment of the
use of brass in all peace-time indus
tries. It Is feared that this country
may not be able to meet the war
needs. The allies require 2.000.000
pounds of brass daily for small-arms
munitions and artillery shells up to
The ease with which brass can be
worked as compared with steel makes
It almost imperative that copper cas
ings be made on all ammunition, if
the needs of the allied countries are
to be met. Germany's shortage of
ammunition is said to be caused in
large part through the fact that the
use of other metals has greatly re

NORTH SEA MINE BARRAGE
BIG ACHIEVEMENT OF U. S.
Important Factor in Crippling U-Boats Due to
Inventive Genius of America and Her
Co-operation with British.
The secret as to the origin and extent of the wonderful North
Sea mine barrage, which has done more to stay the operations of
Germany's undersea campaign of horror and destruction than any
| other single factor, was officially disclosed by Secretary Daniels yes
The stupendous bclow-water ordnancc construction was the idea
of the United States navy. The vast work of laying miles and miles
of ingeniously devised mines was performed entirely under the direc
tion of the United States navy, and largely by the officers and men
of our navy in co-operation with the British admiralty.
Invention of American.
The mines themselves are the in
vention of an American. They were
made in record time in this country
and shipped abroad In American ves

to be America's chief contribution to
the anti-submarine campaign of the
Until yesterday the strictest cen
sorship has been maintained as to the
details of the stupendous undertaking
which has won the admiration and
appreciation of the naval and ord
nance experts of the world. The
story matches up to the best tradi

The authorized announcement by
Secretary Daniels states that from
r the moment this country entered the
war, officers of the Bureau of Ord
j nance of the navy contended that the
most effective way of combatting: the
submarine would be to blockade the
enemy's coast by means of mines or
anti-submarine devices, and strongly
urged the placing of an undersea bar
rier around the North Sea to prevent
the egress as far as possible of the
U-boats from their home ba.?*es Into
the Atlantic. i
After studying various devices, such
as neta. mines and bombg In combi

waa concluded that the latter method
offered the moat promise. The ob
stacles to be overcome were the dif
ficulties of mining in such great
depths of water and the immense
number of mines required.

head of the District Health Depart-]

"Ijtt a patient get out of bed too

at naught by a quick relapse.
"While the situation seems to be
cleaving up it is not yet time to open
places of public gathering. While

the high mortality of the epidemic at
its crest, they are still high enough
to justify the utmost caution In any
move to relax the precautions that
have helped so greatly in reducing
the ravages of the disease."*

In answer to many requests that the
churches be permitted to open yester

health officer of the District and the
office of the Vnited State* Public
ITealth Service had advised against it.
and that no modifications of the clos

the week e nded October 19 shows 7Jb

to influenza and 97 to pneumonia. The
