Instead of a visible "green line," however, a device has been perfected whereby vessels. seek In their way Into harbor In thick leather can follow with safety a sub mersed and enersized wire. In the outer reaches of New Tork harbor where deep water meets shoals, there begins a marine passage way known as Ambrose channel. This channel leads up through the nar rows into the inner harbor and to the docks and In this channel the guiding cable has been laid. Ships properly equipped to take advantage of its guid ing powers can follow it through any RUBBER STAMPS kind of weather with the same desree of assurance as can the passenger who weeks to make his way from Grand Central terminal to Times Square. The device consists of a cable 16 miles long laid in the center of the channel. It Is energised with an alter nating current from the shore. Ships to take advantage of it must be equipped with audiphones or listening devices attached to the hull. Ap proaching the channel the sound waves emitted by the cable can be heard for some distance, and the In creasing or decreasing strength of the sound enables the ship to be steered until it is right over the source. It is then a simple matter to follow its course through the dredged channel despite storm or fog which would make the marking buoys Invisible or would tend to confuse the warning notes of automatic bell and whistle markers. This cable Is but an additional pro tection for shipping entering American ports. It supplements the radio com pass installed and operated by tne naval communications service now in successful use all along the Atlantic coast. By the compass, ships can as certain their exast position in any kind of weather. Another protection recently tried out by the navy depart ment is a machine for determining depth of water and proximity of other ships through the readings of sounds from the propellers reflected back from the bottom or nearby bodies.

The only tree known to have been planted in memory of Abroham Lincoln right after his assassination has been nomi nated for a place in the hall of fame for "trees with a history," which the American Forestry association is com piling. A. S. Bailey of Decorah. Iowa, where the tree now stands, informed the association that the tree was planted by one John Finn, who is still living. When Abraham Lincoln was assassi nated Mr. Finn was in Chicago and he returned home much depressed. A few days later, on April 27, 1965, Governor Stone of Iowa declared a day of mourn ing for Lincoln. Finn went into the woods and dug up a small hackberry shoot, which he transplanted on tne street in front of his home. The shoot took root and today is one of the most magnificent trees in Iowa. It is 110 feet high and nearly 12 feet in circum ference, to which facts the American Forestry association points as a great lesson in what can be done In tree planting. . The Daughters of the American Rev olution, the Grand Army of the Re public and historical societies of the country are said to be reporting many other trees with a history to the Amer ican Forestry association. Other nomi nations for the hall of fame are: The first algaroba tree in the Ha waiian Islands by M. J. Riordan of Flagstaff. Ariz.
