New Crane Installs Huce Ship Machinery

The only place in the world where ships of 30,000 tons displacement
and upward can be litted out afloat under a glass roof. Clearance in the wet
dock at the New York Shipbuilding plant in Camden, NT. J., is approximate

traveling crane which map be noticed suspended above the steamship Wenat

years the same crane was used for the installation of guns, turrets and other

"We the undersigned, wish to bring

cent statistics gathered in Vienna
show Austrian children subnormal
both in weight and height. Recent
examination of apprentices in Vienna
revealed that boys of 17 years of age
have an average height of five feet,
two inches, instead of the normal
height of five feet, six inches, and that
their weight averages 101 pounds, in

about 16 pounds below normal
weight. Girls are correspondingly

of the unhealthful condition of their
