GLOUCESTER. Mass., Dec. 21. A
new type of projectile which would
scatter a white-hot mixture of molten
steel over the object of attack and at
the same time permeate the atmosphere
with a deadly gas which would make
it impossible for fire-fighters to ap

ment made by the inventor tonight.
The new missile may soon appear in

for its purchase, he said. The United

ducting experiments with the new
projectile at Sandy Hook, he, added.
The. missile is designed for use in

Mr. Hammond explained that -th
projectile carries an aluminothermic
mixture, which, five seconds after the
projectile is discharged, turns the steel
inside to a white-hot mixture at a tem

When the projectile hits the target,

Instead of consulting Senator Reed,
the President consulted Postmaster
General Burleson, and on the tatter's
advice nominated a man who has held
a subordinate position in the Kansas

appointment was a direct slap at Sen
