Omaha Boy Invents "Mole Torpedo" for Trench War Harry Peterson, an Omaha boy, employed by the M. E. Smith com pany, may become famous aa an in ventor of man-killing devices for trench warfare. Nothing that will bore through the ground and into the trenches had been thought of prior to the Omahan'a device. Peterson has invented this kind of death-dealing machine, but he is not saying a word about it, as it has been taken over by the govern ment for examination and experi mental purposes. Peterson is 23 years of age and comas from a family of inventors. He has been working on his in vention for some months, and, in the presence of army officers, is said to have made a number of ex periments in the hills north of Flor ence.
