D. Cohen, '19D, of Johannesburg,
South Africa, tells in the fifth article
of a series of eight of the undeveloped
resources of his country.
One of the most conspicious features
of South Africa that strikes the casual
observer, is the lack of what one might
term the scientific spirit. The few of
the many resources that are being de-
veloped are in the majority of cases
controlled by men of little scientific
The writer happened to visit a small
ammonia factory last year. It will
astonish chemists to hear that the pro-
cess employed in manufacturing am-
monia was by heating caustic soda and
ammonium sulpIhate. The manager ex-
plained that he was worried because
he could obtain no further supplies of
caustic soda except at a ruinous price. ,
He was agreeably surprised when he
was informed that he could use lime
instead of caustic soda, and as there
are plentiful deposits of almost pure
limestone he was also greatly re-
At first he was rather skeptical as to
whether ammonia could be obtained
by using lime, but a simple experi-
ment in a test tube soon convinced
him and he immediitely ordered a sup-
ply of lime.
This is only one of numerous in-
stances. And the company made a
larger profit, too. Of course the fact
that the country is new is some excuse
for these conditions. What South Af-
rica needs is well trained analytical
chemists, particularly research chem-
Among the many resources of South
Africa which could be developed, the
most obvious is the utilization of by-
products. The mere fact that these
industries can be worked at a profit,
with, in some instances, entire disre-
gard of the by-products, is a further
testimony of the potentialities of our

is aware of the importance of the coal
A film exchange has been arranged'
at the Engineering society's room for
those who took pictures at Camp Davis
during the past summer. A box will
be provided in which the men can
drop sealed envelopes containing their

the number of films enclosed should
be written on the face of the en-

The pictures will then be turned
over to Daines who will immediately

there are extensive fields of coal and

large cities. But no attempt is made
to utilize the valuable coal tar except
for the purpose of mending roads.

Producer of "All That Glitters" to En-
ter Field of Silent Drama
Another theatrical star has just an-
nounced a change of allegiance from
the stage made famous by Florenz
Ziegfield to the one equally renowned
through the efforts of Mary Pickford,
Theda Bara, Charlie Chaplin, and
others of more or less note. Contrary
to the usualrconcomitants of such a
change, however, the coming of Eu-
gene B. Sanger to the cinema will not
iean the the dimming of lights and
closing of theaters along Broadway.

Mr. Sanger is not an actor, but a pro-
Mr. Sanger will be remembered by
many as the producer of "All That
Glitters," the Union opera of two years
ago. He has also produced plays of
a similar nature at Princeton, Harvard,
Pennsylvania, Yale, Columbia, and
Barnard. His 35 years experience in
the theatrical field has led him into
practically every line, ballet, min-
strelsy, vaudeville, musical comedy,
light comedy, light opera, Shake-
spearean repertoire, director, and
finally photoplay manufacturer.
It was during these experiences that
Mr. Sanger formed the comparison
between the regular chorus girl and
the college man chorus girl with the
balance in favor of the latter.
