. An experiment which Is expected to
havo an important bearing upon subma
rine development In this country 'was
performed at the Drexel Institute, 32d
and Chestnut streets, today by William
S. Bond, a chemist, of Wilmington, Del.,
Who was submerged under water In a
small air-tight compartment from 10:60
o'clock thfs morning until almost'J o'clock,
breathing the same air continuously dur
ing that period.
The box In which the chemist was.con
flned Is but a six-foot cube, containing
only enough air to keep a man alive but
a, half hour without the use of purifying
agents, Tho invention prefected by Bond
ncrnilln that he be kept Indefinitely In
the box without suffering ' because of
bad air, It consists of an electrlo fan
.which keeps the air circulating" and forces
it through a chemical which absorbs the
carbon dioxide given off by the body and
replaces if with oxygen.
The. submerged box Was equipped with
a glass (op, an electrlo light, a stool,
food, magazines and a telephone, throulh
which the Inventor communicated with
those watching the experiment. The only
trouble which occurred during the afte
noqn,was when the electrlo 1 Hht and;
telephone connection became disengaged
momentarily. In reporting oyer the tele
phone, Bond "said that 'the experiment
was successful, but that the electrlo light
made the heat so excessive that he was
forced to remove the bathing suit Jh
which he was clad.

SHIBE PARK. June 23. Manager Mack
sent out his other recruit pitcher, Bruno
Haas, to oppose tho Highlanders In the
second game today. The grand .pitching
of Crowell In the first game created con
siderable . Interest In Haas In his first
appearance, as It ' Is claimed that ' this
youngster Is better than Crowell.
Haas appeared, to be a trifle nervous
and. was Inclined to be wild. Jack War
hop, the smallest pitcher In the major
league, was Donovan's pitching selection.
Because Haas Is a left-handed pitcher,
Manager Donovan sent Mullln to replace
Plpp, a left-handed hitter, at first base.
High walked. Pecklnpaugh filed to
Striink. High tried to steal second while
Haas held the ball, but the youngster
threw to Malone In time to retire the
runner. Matsel walked, Malone threw
