The Navy Department at Washing
ton, D. C, has been calling for binocu
lars, spyglasses, telescopes, sextants,
Melvln Fenwlck, a well known resi
dent of Springfield found this call ot
his country in one of the leading news
papers and answered by sending his
telescope to the Navy Department,
and a few days ago received a letter
which is here published:
"The enclosed check, payable to
your order, in the sum of $1.00, Is
payment in full for article purchased
from you by the Navy. However, if
practicable, at the termination of the
war to return same to you, the $1.00
payment will then constitute the
A complete record, giving your
name and address with complete de
scription of the article, will be kept
at the Navy " Department. Each artl
cle Is also engraved with a number
which acts as a key to designate
where same is to be returned at the
termination of the war. In this con
nection the return may be facilitated
If the Navy Department is advised as
to any change in address."
These articles have been manufac
tured in only two countries of the
world, Germany and France. Since
the war began the work of making
Uiem has been completely stopped
'and the only ones in existence are
those which were made before that
time. They are extremely useful in
'sighting U boats and along with her
other preparations of war, Germany
'purchased every one possible, for
she realized they would prove useful
and to her disadvantage in the lands
of the allies.
The Navy Department at Washing
ton, D. C, offers a check for one dol
lar to any one now holding one of
these instruments if they will lend it
to the Government for use until the
termination of the war. I f at that
time it Is practicable the article will
be returned to the owner, and the
dollar will simply be the price paid
for the rental of the glasses.
Any one who is so fortunate as to
possess one of these rare instruments
should be willing to turn It over to
our good old Uncle Sam at this time
of his great need for use as long as
he shall need It. It is at least one
way, and indeed a good way, of "doing
our bit." -. , ..
