Designs Useful and Practical Physics
Sv.lcs of Texas A. & M. College has
designed a very simple unique piece
of apparatus for determining t-oef-fictont

dulus. Many different types of ap
paratus for this purpose are on the
market both foreign and American !

features such as cost. Inaccuracy dif-
ficulty of manipulation' and length of
time required for the student to make
test With the purpose of overcom-
lng these handicaps Mr. Wright 'plants. Then scatter a tablespoonful
worked for several months last year'of nitrate of soda around each bill
cn the unsolved problem and at last and cultivate clean. Never prune
aoooeeded through the employment of .the vines at all. In the absence of
js method involving an entirely new
principle of operation. Ills apparatus
coals about one-eighth ' as' much as
those on the market; measures ac-'
cnrately to one twenty flve Uuhdredtbs

snore student can ruq several tests

iiuraal laboratory period of two hours.
After the model had been perfected
!laat year Mr. Wright had four sets
.constructed In the physics shop
which alnce then have been used by
n of the sophomore engineers with
-entire satisfaction to the Instructors
..anl students. Mr. Roberts and Mr.
Cadwell of the Central Scientific
Company Chicago have examined the
apparatus carefully and they are In-
-. terestcd In putting It on the market

"The many attractive features of this

atandard experiment In the colleges
i and universities will doubtless Insure
.its gonoral use.

BY SHIP SALES
Captured Vessels and Cargoea Since
War Started Yield Big Revenue
(Corresiiondence of Associated Press)
London May 17. A net gain of $24-
250000 has been realized by Great
Britain from the seizure of enemy
ships and their cargoes in the last
twenty months of the war according
to the record of the prize court. The
government has captured 157 ships
which have been disposed of after
decision by the prize court as fol-
Requisitioned .' 42
Detained till after the
war and requisitioned 73
Total 157 195970
The results of the sales have been
Proceeds of condemned ves-
sels and Interest $ 1674026
Expenses of sale 26540
Total proceeds of saleB of '
ships and cargoes 34250000
There are many more vessels and a
large quantity of cargo still before the
court. Some Idea of the work already
done may be gathered from the fact
that more than 1000 writs for prize
proceedings bave been Issued.
The goods which bave been seized
and condemned as contraband repre
sent every possible variety ranging
from windmills tomnstones and hu-
intended for the Berlin Zoo.

after eleven tallies had been counted
Olson went in and stemmed the tide.
The Farmers scored elulit times. A.
& M. made things look uncertain In
the sixth. After they 'batted around
once for four runs Carmlchacl went
in and escaped with two more. A. &
M. scored twice in mo tlilrcV. rtlgney

the former getting two the latter two. .
Ezell Williams and Keltner did the
star stick work for Texas. Ezell hit
a homer Williams a three-bagger and
a single and Keltner three singles.
In the second with the bases full
Williams made a beautiful stab of
Burns' line drive and wound up A. &
M.'s chances in that frame.
Sellars Thomas pitched a pretty
game until the sixth when on ac
count of recent Illness he weakened
The game was very exciting
throughout. The onslaught of A. & M.
In the sixth raised the rooters from
their mood of satisfaction and from
that Inning forward every person In

were on their toes. This wound up
