American Girl Is
Hero When Quake
Strikes Armenia,
LEN INAKANT, Armenia, Oct. 2.-1
An American girl's heroism saved1
many lives in the great earthquake
which devastated Armenia last Fri-I
day night. Miss Edna Steiger, a,
slender nurse from Williamsport, Pa.,
was sitting at a fire place talking with
another American when a terrifying
rumbling, like a stormy sea, was
heard. She saw chimneys topple and
the earth open, followed by the crash
of collapsing walls and shill cries.
The nurse thought only of her hos-
pital at Kara Kilissa, four miles dis-
tant, where she had left scores of
crippled patients. She jumped into
an automobile and speeded across the
broken road. She reached the hospital,
to find it partly in ruins. Against the
entreating of her companion, she ran
into the trembling buildings, and with
the help of natives dragged out the
terrified patients until all were re-
Then, learning that an Armenian
nurse still remained within the totter-
ing walls, she returned and carried
her stricken Armenian associate to
the threshold of the hospital and fell,
fainting,*as the third quake leveled
the structure to the ground.
Miraculously she escaped the fall-
ing debris, but her sister nurse was
seriously injured.

Lecture On "'The Corrosion Resistance
Of Metals" Will Be Dedicated
To Professor Campbell
Dr. William Minot Guertler, director
of the Metall-Instiut der Technischen
Hochschule, Charlottenburg, Germany,
will give two University lectures here
Nov. 1 and 2. His first lecture will be
dedicated to the late Prof. E. D. Camp-
bell, head of the chemistry department
who died last year, will be on "The
Corrosion Resistance of Metals." The
next day he will give "Systematic Pro-
cedure in Establishing the Limits of
the Utilization of Metal Combinations
in Technical Practice."!
Dr. Guertler is one of the Iest
krawn metalurgists in the world. Af-
ter his high school education, he stu-
died at the Institute for Technology
in Hanover and Munich, and at ther
Universities of Munich and Gottingen.
While at these latter institutions, he
came under the influence of Profes-
sor Tammann, the famous chemist.
Upon receiving his doctor's degree in
1904, he became Tammann's assistant.
In this capacity, he worked out,
in cooperation with Tammann, the
