Abstract

Spiral lamps show abt 11 per hp, but don't last long. Ott is trying to get better shaped spirals. Howell and Holzer are doing related experiments. Do you want double chamber lamps tested for life, or should we wait till you come out here? "How about the names in our paper as asked the other day? Shall we keep the names and add that of Maj MacLaughlin?" Welsh is "doing fairly." "The carbons are very good resistance and excellent body and color." "Lawson does not want to take charge and experiment with Welsh here, as he says he could spoil any experiment if he so wished to, especially as he Lawson would have to use the men that are under Welsh now." Turning out about 800 lamps a day off the pumps. Curves are about same as before. 24/25 of the 16cp lamps last longer than 8 days. consider for inclusion: view of lamp factory dh 13dec02
