AIR CONDITIONING DEPARTMENT—COMPRESSORS AND COOLERS must be thoroughly refined so as to prevent as far as possible the accumulation of foreign salts in the nucleus solution and especially remove the potassium salts, which have the property of crystallizing out with the needle ammonium nitrate, forming a highly undesirable impurity in amatol.

Yes, I like the pictures too.  The Imperial War Museum in Great Britain has been a great source for them.  They don't care if you reproduce their pictures, either, just so long as you display the pic's https code and the IWM reference number.  The amount of pictures have been greatly reduced of late.  I guess that's to be expected, what with the war being over and all.

Ha ha!!!  Good comparison, Fish.  But now what can I do?  I'm a hundred years too late in pointing out to the author of the above V and the U that he/she missed a U in the word 'architectural'.

Reading the clips from The Richmond Palladium and Sun-Telegram., April 17, 1919 was a hoot. My two top funniest clips are the the happy-go-lucky steeplejack vs the psychic real estate woman. The man with the 4 month “arm” problem must be given honorable mention.  ???
