with Raleigh was out of the question

but they gave off a metallic sound
that drowned the human voice when
it tried to articulate and efforts to
reproduce the spoken words were vain.
It was expected that the lines
would be placed in commission some
time during- the day, and in the mean
time the Record is minus its usual
