UNCLE HARRY EXPLAINS HOW TORPEDOES WORK
"Toll us about torpedoes, Uncle
Harry—the kind that the submarines
are using in sinking ships, and how
they are used/" asked Jimmy.
"How big was the torpedo that sank
the Lusitauia?" asked Joe.
"About 16 or 18 feet long, and it
'weighed about a half a ton," said L'n
cle Harry. "Some of the torpedoes
that are being used in this war are
14 feet long and others are 19 feet
from tip to tip."
' "How far can one of these torpedoes
'be shot?" inquired Jimmy.
"Well, an officer in the United
States Navy was telling me on the
.train this afternoon, tliat it is pos
sible for a torpedo to travel 4,000
Jards, and if it strikes a battleship,
even at that distance, sink the big
.ship," said Uncle Harry.
"Isn't that more than two miles?"
"Yes, and 4 10 feet over two miles,"
id Uncle Harry. "Although most
of the torpedoes that have struck ships
have beeu tired at a shorter distance —
1.000 or 2,000 yards. You under
. stand, boys, the shorter the distance
.the fa-ster the torpedo is traveling when
it strikes, and also, the more accurately
it can be aimed."
"How fast do they travel?" asked
"If a torpedo is fired at a 4.000
yari range—that is, 4,000 yards from
' the object it is aimed to strike, it goes
at a flite of about 30 knots an hour,"
explained Uncle Harry: "But if it is
Jired at a 1,000 yard range it goes very
much faster—anywhere from 35 to 40
. knots; and a knot, you know, is 6.080
feet or 800 feet more than a mile."
"Why are they called torpedoes?"
asked Joe. "They're shaped like ci
gars, aren't they, and torpedoes are
"That's right about the shapes,"
said Uncle Harry, "but a torpedo does
not gets its name from its shape, but
from the cause and manner of the ex
plosion. The kind of torpedoes boys
have on Fourth of July contain a cap
and a lot of small stones—all encased
in a little paper bag. When you throw
a hand torpedo against a wall 'or a
etone step, the cap explodes and drives
the little stones through the paper cov
ering. The war torpedo has, at the
.pointed end, what is called the 'war
head I ,' which is a compartment contain
ing a mixture of dry and wet guncot
ton and mercury, which, together, make
a dreadful explosive. When this 'war
head' strikes the side of a ship an ex
plosion occurs, just the same as when

explode and in a few minutes she
"But. how is a torpedo fired
what makes it go through the water?''
"It is fired through a tube (or big
pipe that runs from the inside of a
submarine out into the water), by the
expanding of compressed air and it
carries a compartment filled with com
pressed air which is automatically re
leased the v instant the torpedo strikes
the water," explained Uncle Harry.
"But what's compressed air?"
"Just what its name says it is,"
said Uncle Harry. "You use com
pressed air in your bicycle tire—air
pressed or pumped into the rubber
tube. If a tack or a piece of glass
cuts a hole in your tire you have a
puncture and the air that has been
pumped or compressed into the tire,
hisses out with force, just like a stream
of water from a hose. On the sub
marines and battleships—yes, battle
ships have torpedo tubes—there is ma
chinery for compressing air and letting
it out in such a way that the force
drives the torpedo out the tube and
starts it on its journey. Then—in the
torpedo itself, is a tank containing
more compressed air. The instant the
torpedo touches the water the com
pressed air in the torpedo's compart
ment is released. This force is ar
ranged to drive two little propellers at
the rear end of the torpedo and it goes
scooting through the water—a combina
tion of a boat and 1 a shell fired from a
big gun. In another part of the tor
pedo is an instrument called a g-y-r-o
--s-c-o-p-e which steadies the torpedo
and keep it from going off the line of
"Torpedoes are wonderful things,
arn t they, Uncle Harry?" Joe.
"Yes, they are wonderful, and fear
ful," said Uncle Harry, "aud, boys, it
seems awful that such a wonderful in
vention should be used to destroy peo
ple's lives. I want you to understand
what torpedoes are and how they work,
but I also want you to remember that
the world would be a much better
place if there were more talking ma
chines and fewer torpedoes. The talk
ing machine is just as wonderful an in
vention and many times more important
because it gives people pleasure and
helps them in their work."—Copy
