Saved from Dsstracfeo by the Use
Oil on the Turbulent Waters
Br GARRETT . P. BERY1SS.
Th growing us of motor WU has
given renewed Interest to the queatkm at
the usefulness o the method, which has
beea known from remote antiquity, of
waves by means of
oil oread upon
then. It la a mat
ter of common ob
servation that a
thin film of oil
resting upon a
surface of water
prevent the latter
from rippling un
der the action, of
a brink wind. The
popular ex plana-1
tton is that the oil

down. But thla Is not tbs true explana
tion, (or the ell Is lighter than the water

fact that Its surface tension Is less than

It protects the water beneath from tbe

the summits of the waves. '
In a series of letter published fai tb

Interestingly stummed up. Tbe oil oan
