I certainly hope by the time this Album reaches you the snow is all gone for the year I'M READY FOR SPRING! What about you? And so, you probably have your catalog orders sent in, your visions of your gardens all on the way may I suggest one plot of your garden be THE CHURCH GARDEN This is what you plant Three rows of Squash: 1. Squash indifference. 2. Squash criticism. 3. Squash gossip. Four Rows of Turnips: 1. Turn up for meetings. 2. Turn up with a visitor. 3. Turn up with a smile. 4. Turn up with a Bible. AND Five Rows of Lettuce: 1. Let us love one another. 2. Let us welcome strangers. 3. Let us be faithful to duty. 4. Let us truly worship God. 5. Let us give liberally.

And before we go on I must tell you we have a new grandson, Timothy Patrick Flannery brought in the big snowstorm here January 22. 8 lbs., 14 oz., 21 in. long Many of you will remember Keli as she worked for the magazines for several years. This is her third, as she has a darling 8 year old, Kortni Lynn and an adorable 2 year old Megan Julie and we are all trying to help the family get back to normal. There are plenty of changes you know when a new little one arrives changes in more than one way! We're all happy and thank God for all His blessings. Onto the letters as we have more material this time for which I am grateful.

The reason for this letter is in reply to an inquiry in the Jan/Feb 1987 issue of the Album, by Mr. Ross Abend roth, Route 1, Greenville, Wisconsin 54942, 'On How a Steam Engine Injector Works', says HAROLD I. STARK, 3215 S. Meridian Street, Indianapolis, Indiana 46217.

'I have several old engineers books which cover in detail along with diagrams about everything and anything a person needs to know concerning steam engines, locomotives, marine engines and etc. 'These books are old 1900-1925 and are no longer being printed, and were used in engine schools as knowledge and text for aspiring young men to become steam engineers. I could not have built my scale size Gaar-Scott model without the aid of these wonderful books that I borrowed from old retired engineers, and upon their passing were passed on to me; to them I shall be forever grateful.

THE PENBERTHY INJECTOR

453. The injector is probably the most generally used means o f feeding boilers. It was invented in 1858 by M. Giffard, and large numbers of the same types are still made. The action of the injector will be understood by referring to the sketch (Fig. 229). Steam is taken from the boiler and passes through the nozzle A to the injector; the amount of steam is regulated by the valve B. In the tube C the steam is combined with the slow!)' moving water, which is drawn up from the tank D. The swiftly flowing steam puts sufficient momentum into the water to carry it into the boiler. The delivery tube E has a break in it at F where the surplus steam or water can overflow.
