The Chinese used iron and lead anchors 3000 B. C. The word anchor is of Greek origin meaning hook or crooked. Iron an­chors have been fished up from the bottom of the ocean near Europe dated 600 B. C. Cast steel is now used for anchors in a ratio of one- half pound of anchor to each ten of ship. Our battleships carry three or more of thesc anchors. * * * * That during 1937 the Normandie crossed the Atlantic 36 times cover­ing 122,400 miles averaging 28.87 knots.

History goes that within the moat ( In which an ever present army of expectant sharks swims) the fa­mous prisoner Ianquished in a dun­geon like cell for eleven long years. Food was pushed in to him through a small opening in the cell door. His release was then occasioned strange­ly enough by a reason similiar to the one which brought about his trial, his desire to aid and remedy human suffering. The Doctor proved the stop gap which halted a serious epidemic of yellow fever at the prison. As a result of this service his release was effected but so broken in body and spirits was the kindly doctor that he lived only a few years.
