OAKLAND, Calif., March 15.— Little heaps of gunpowder exploded mysteriously in the open air as Army officers watched a demonstra tion of a "detonator ray” described by its inventor as potentially able to blow up enemy ammunition and gasoline stores at a distance. The demonstration was staged yesterday by Otto H. Mohr, elderly inventor, after spending several months in constructing the ma chine. Mr. Mohr said he had offered the device to the Government as a possible instrument of defense. Mr. Mohr declined to tell exactly how the machine operated but said it depended on both sunlight and electric power and produced vibra tions which caused the powder to explode. The powder was poured into lids and bottoms of ordinary tin coffee cans, about a teaspoonful on each. The cans were set on the ground about 20 feet from the instrument. Ray-End Contains Bulb. The machine is a box-like thing about as big as a good-sized table model radio set. In one end is a short tube-like affair pointing to the material to be exploded. On top of the box is a coil of wire suggest ing an electro-magnet and a small antenna-lik^ structure of wires roughly in the shape of a cone. Along the axis of the cone runs a slender pipe into the box. An electric cord leading out of the box was plugged into an ordinary light socket aqd the pipe in the cone antenna was pointed toward the sun. A gentle buzz like that from an electric transformer came from the box. Through the tube at the ray end of the machine could be seen a bright light which Mohr said was from a small neon blub. The tube at the ray end was pointed toward the cans with the powder heaps on them. For sev eral minutes nothing happened. Mr. Mohr extended a small stick toward one of the cans as If to adjust Its position. As the stick touched the can there was a hiss and a puff. The powder had exploded. Other Heaps Explode. After the machine had been run ning about 20 minutes two other podrder heaps exploded when no one was near them. A fourth exploded as Mr. Mohr stirred the powder slightly with the stick. During the operation the sun was moderately warm and the sky clear. The tin cans felt only slightly warm after standing the 2b minutes in the sun. Under ordinary conditions most types of gunpowder are said to re quire nearly 300 degrees of heat, Fahrenheit, for ignition. The Army officers refused to com ment on the test. Mr. Mohr said they suggested additional tests with the explosives shut off from all di rect exposure to the sun. Mohr, an inventor of several in struments designed to utilize the sun’s heat, says he has used a larger machine of the same kind to explode gasoline and other substances at even greater distances. He expressed the belief it eventually could be used effectively on explosives a miles dis tant. Pennington Minthorn, Hoover's Uncle, Dies By the Auoclated Preu. NORTHRIDGE.
