A fifteen year old boy operating a dangerous boring machine at which he said a boy recently bored half his hand off. To operate this machine (which bores a large hole in the spade handle) the boy has to throw his whole weight onto the lever which pushes the handle (and himself) up against the unprotected borer. A slip might easily result fatally. Boy earns $1.65 a day. This factory has a number of unprotected belts and dangerous machines. One other boy, about the age of this one, was doing all kinds of work, taking away the handles from a huge rip saw, etc., and constantly exposed to danger. Pittman Handle Factory.

Durward Nickerson, Western Union messenger #55. One of the by-products of messenger work. Lives in Bessemer, R.F.D. #1.

He has recently returned from a hobo trip through 25 states.

National Archives. Washington, D.C., Nov. 22. In the powerful press, the sheets of acetate, under heat and pressure 'melt' into the pores of the paper and adhere to each other as well. One additional advantage of this process is that, after being pressed with the sheets of cellulose acetate, the paper is thinner and takes up less room than it did originally. The result is a sheet of paper and acetate which comes off the polished metal plates as a single sheet. Tests for the aging of this material made by the Bureau of Standards in Washington have shown that this treatment of the paper, called laminating is as permanent as it is possible to make any record of paper
