MAGNETIC ISLAND FOUND IN THE ALASKAN CHANNEL (Science Service) Washington, Dec. 23.--Sinbad the sailor's remarkable story of a magnetic island is partially confirmed by reports just received front Commander F. B. T. Seims of the Coast and Geodetic Survey steamer Explorer. East Island, in the Revilligido channel to Alaska, is the source of the magnetic disturban- ces. Obscrvations on the shore of the is- land show that magnetic iron ore is present in the rocks. This attracts the compass needle to one side and ren- ders it unreliable while the ship is passing the island. The only way to get rid of the dis- turbanee wouhl be to mine all of the rock containing the ore. Since there is a deep channel around the island such drastic measures are not deemed necessary. Pilots of vessels lnust use caution when running in foggy weath- er, in order to keep from going on the rocks near there. Slight magnetic disturbances have been noticed near Juneau and Port Smetifham, also in Alaska. The location of magnetic East Island is about 45 degrees and 52 minutes north latitude, and 131 degrees and 12 minutes west longitude. On the line southeast from the island, and one and one-half miles off-shore, it is 11 de- grees, one mile off it is 21 degrees, and four miles off the compass is normal. Mike and Pat, who had partaken very freely of some high-powered moonshine, were strolling down the streets of a large city. Pat happened to notice a large sign and stopped to read it. The sign read: "Ladies Ready to Wear Clothes." "IFGosh! Mike," said Pat, "shure, I think it's about time."
