Some American Jurassic Ammonites of the Genera Quenstedticeras, Cardioceras, and Amoeboceras, Family Cardioceratidae

Description: Introduction: The interpretation of the data furnished by the study of these fossils has been hindered somewhat because the exact stratigraphic location of much of the material is unknown. It was gathered with regard merely for the general stratigraphic and geographic position. However, as a knowledge of the general relationship forms to those of other areas is in itself of value to the stratigrapher and systematist it has seemed desirable to describe and figure the species.

War Gas Investigations: Advance Chapter from Bulletin 178, War Work of the Bureau of Mines

Description: From General Statement: "Beginning with an investigation to develop the best type of gas mask, the scope of the work extended until it included researches relating to a wide range of devices, such as different types of poisonous and irritating gases and smokes, smoke screens, gas shells and gas bombs, signal lights, and incendiary bombs. When the results obtained through this research were to be applied by the War Department, the Director of the Bureau of Mines cooperated in the selection of men to have charge of manufacture or further development, recommending chemists who subsequently received commissions in the Army. Perhaps the greatest result of the research work has been the demonstration of the value of the services that the chemist and chemical engineer can render in time of need and the recognition of chemical investigations as a necessary function of the Government."

Recovery of Zinc from Low-Grade and Complex Ores

Description: From Introduction: "Vocalization in retorts has been, until recently, the only commercial process of producing spelter, hence the zinc mine operators have had to meet the terms of the zinc mine operators have had to meet the terms of the zinc smelters in regard to the following requirements: (1) Minimum percentage of zinc the ore must contain; (2) the chemical combination of the zinc in the ore; (3) the proportion present of those elements that interfere with the successful recovery of the zinc when the ore is retorted. As stated previously, and as will be shown later, a large part of the valuable mineral content of the ore is lost in effecting this concentration. As a result of the other requirements that have to be met in zinc smelting, much zinc is lost in the mining and milling of zinc ore."
