PAGE EIGHT 9 By Harry IMffin A World's Record for Lady -amgler using 3/6 tackle. On October 27th. while fishing from the cruiser "Gar- daze," of/ Seal Rock. Catalina. Mar- garet Lawrence of Compton, Califor- nia. established a new world's record on 3/6 tackle for lady anglers, by i~ringing to gaff a 169 pound marlin swordfish, and to do the job right, attd to give other lady anglers something to shoot at. she gaffed her own fish, and to prove that she is a champion, at no time, did she aIIm more than I50 yards of line off her reel. Now this is angling, be it, lady or gentle- man angler. much credit must be given to her skipper, Bobby Garcla for the magni- ficent way in which he handled the boat during the 2 hours and I0 minute fight. Congratulations to you both, Margaret and Bobby. I)ID YOU KNOW?~ By Harry Diffin THAT Mr. Campbell of the Island Photo Company is making a grand offer to the girl bowlers ?

The report was prepared by OTS investigator Dr. George Ornsen, a con- sulting sanitary engineer, of New York C'ity. After a thorough investigation, Dr. Ornsen concludes that the sewage disposal process deveIoped at Niers accomplishes its intended purpose eeo- no~nically and that it deserves consid- eration where waste is wholly or in major part of industrial orig~n. 'Dr, Ornsen states that an associa- uon was formed in the late twenties in the Niers River district to combat in- creasing sewage disposal probiems arising out of growing industrializa- tion, mainly in the cities of Munchen Gladbach, and Rheydt. The Niers RAver, a .~mall tributary of the tower Rhine, has a rate of flow of about 250 gallons per second. It receives waste of textile mills, bleach- enes, dye works, tanneries, and paper and straw mills.The concentration and composmcm of these effluents (7,500.000 gallons daily) makes for a pollution load equivalent to the quan- tity of domestic sewage of 6100,000 peo- ple. To this daily load is added ,000- 01710 gallons of normal domestic sewage of 200,000 inhabitants. "I~us the 12. 500,000 gallons of sewage to be treated daily corresponds in degree to pollu- tion to a total of 20,000,000 gallons of domestic sewage while the rate of flow of the Niers River amounts to only 21,600,000 gallons a day--a ratio, of ahnost 1 :l Early laboratory tests using conven- tional methods of precipitation with ferric chloride, settling, and subse- quent aeration with activated sludge resulted in satisfactory efflflent. How- ever. the chemical sludge was very dif- ficulr to digest and the costs estimated on a mass basis prohibitive. The Niers process was developed by a German chemist. Dr. H. Juu~,to overcome these two draw~cks. The technical difficulty of digesting the sludge properly was solved by de- priving the sludge of part of its iron content, and. mixinq it, prior to diges- tion with the other sludges produced in the plant. "l~e economic diffieuhy " -as solved by using cheap iron scrap (cast iron turnings) as the sole initial source of won, instead of iron compounds, and by recovering about 60 percent of the iron from the sludge and returning it to the process after being used as a coagulant. Forric hydroxide in the sludge ~ reduced to ferrous hydroxide bv aeration and the latter is dissolved by carbon dioxide to fon~ sohrble fer- rous bicarbonate. Stack ~,~ases con- raining 10-12 Percent carbon dioxide are mixed with the incoming sewage under slight pressure l~rior to treat- ment with fmc ~ron particles. The'reimrt describes present operat- ing and processing practices in detail, the use of slu&ze as fertilizer and sewage gas methane, 90-94 percen,t) as an automobile fuel, and construction costs. The appendix contains a bibli- ography, four photographs, and eight detailed drawings of the disposal plant and its component parts.
