Amateur Inventor Tells of
-.Three Ways to Stop Oer
many's Best Weapon.
TO MAKE FLEET USELESS
By A. R. GROH.
The mother of Invention is well
known. She is Necessity. Surely you
have not forgottan that "necessity is
the mother of invenfiou.',
A necessity now exists "for an in
vention to put the submarines "on the
blink." 'And no doubt Necessity will
soon give birth to another Invention
that will make a submarine about as
-useful as a. wheel on a monument
and about as harmful" at a bean
shooter against a battleship..
t l.niitrh . I am nnt an inventor T
liave been directing mv urisantic iii-
.lellect-toward this. problem.. Didn't
a drug, clerk in' England discover the
inflammable bullet that put the Zep-
fpelins' out' of business.' Wan t he
jfeetting o a week and Isn't he getting
10,000 a year now from, the British
(government? The answer is in the
Affirmative ;o both questions. So whv
Ihouldn't I invent a submarine
aralyzer? . , ' .
.Now Working on 'Em.
1 have several-inventions now un
j'.cr way in my laboratories, anv one
)rf which when perfected will make
Xicrmany's submarine fleet as useless
s a one-niece swimming suit would
it to a chicken. (I mean a feathered
r barnyard chicken.)
One of these inventions is nothing
less than tangling up the propeller of
he submarine. Yep! A small boat
er destroyer sneaks up on the sub
marine from the rear, taking care so
Is not to be seen. Arriving right at
jlie stem of thy unsuspecting slibrhar
Hmc, it heaves overboard a great mass
of tangled wire. This wire is caught
by the" propeller of the submarine
and, zippl in an instant it has been
Vound all around it and the propeller
tomes to s stop.. The submarine is
Jielpless;' r It can't move. Then the
jlestroytr just fastens a line to the
submarine end tows it in to the near
L To,Scize Torpedo.
e-Iy second invention consists of
folhing less than trained fish to at
tack torpedoes. A number of por
ioises will be caught and trained to
follow submarines. They will be
taught to catch hold of. torpedoes
when they are released and to hang
on to them as they go through the
water. The training will be extended
jo such ' a degree that the Ash will
learn to-turn the torpedo completely
round so that it will go back and
Jirike the tubhiarine that discharged
t. Bam I- Good night, submarine!
IVith a school of these trained fish
following each submarine none of
them will ever dare release t torpedo.
I My third invention, is a new method
pi attack? by which one man can put
i submarina. out. pi commission. ; The
fian sneiks up on the, submarine and
gets omit.; He has a bjg clamp with-;
which e fastens & down the hole
through whicUtlle men enter the sub
marine. '.His only ."other, weapon con
sists of a can. of black paint and a
brush. Hc dips "the brush in the
paint aridlquickly .pajnts over, the
glass of till periscope. The submar
ine is now helpless, its crew impris
oned and left -to suffocate? death..
Wrjile all of my inventions may
he rejected by the naval authorities,
(as I atjj only an amateur), some in
vention is going' to be made very
soon that will make submarines as
useless as bows and arrows. Mark
my word. The . great -necessity al
ways bringsjthe great invention. The
invention will probably be made by
one of us ' Americans because we're
the greatest inventors on. earth. We
invented the submarine, aeroplane,
Lewis un, steamship, electric light,
phonograph, amoving picture ,and
nearly everything else. We'll invent
the submarine-smasher. ,
