Unclaimed Fortunes Under The Sea (Jan, 1950)
Off our own shores, within tantalizing reach of you or any other would-be-millionaire, lie fabulous treasures—finders-keepers!
LOOKING for money? Gold is where you I find it—and there’s plenty of that precious stuff down at the bottom of the ocean. On page 62 Mechanix Illustrated shows you just where you can drop anchor on $150,000,000 in sunken treasure, right along our coasts.
But there’s billions more, scattered almost everywhere under the seven seas—all yours for the taking!
On the bottom, even under ideal conditions, Sharp finds that visibility is never more than five feet. In murky waters you may find it much nearer to zero. Your underwater limit for any one day will run between two and three hours. You’ll be lucky then if you can really cover a 20-foot radius.
Movement is extremely difficult. Not only will you find yourself groping almost blindly about that dim world under the sea but the weighted boots and the blocks of lead attached to your belt make turning or bending hazardous and a stum- The Delaware’s gold bullion, of course, is but a minute fraction of the wealth that lies submerged in wrecked ships up and down both coasts of the United States and in many other parts of the globe.
There was the Ward Liner Merida, for example, which sank after a collision 55 miles off Cape Charles, Va., in 1911. She reportedly carried tons of silver bullion, millions of dollars worth of gold belonging to the family of an ousted Mexican president, and caskets crammed with jewels. Researchers claim the Merida’s treasure is more than $4,000,000 and might easily touch $5,000,000.
An effort to salvage the valuables from the Merida failed because the wreck lay too deep. With new improvements in underwater technique, another salvage attempt could be a success. This wouldn’t be a – “shoestring” recovery operation, however.
Over the centuries treasure hunters have spent more money on the wreck of the British frigate Hussar than on any other ill-starred ship of fortune. In 1780 the Hussar rammed a rock and sank in New York’s East River at the point now known as Hell Gate. She was loaded with gold to pay British troops in America. Valuations on her golden cargo range all the way from $4,000,000 to possibly $8,000,000. The Hussar’s multi-million-dollar hoard has inspired a long series of salvage attempts, including Simon Lake’s unsuccessful dredging for the strong boxes in the 1930?s. But the gold is still lying in the bed of the river—probably buried now under tons of silt!
Then there was the war sloop De Braak. carrying $15,000,000 in gold the British had captured from seven Spanish ships. She capsized during a storm and sank 84 feet below the surface one mile off Lewes, Delaware, in 1798.
The Don Carlos II grounded on a coral reef in Matanzas Bay, Cuba, in November 1812. After a vain effort to save the ship by heaving cargo over the side, the crew finally took to the boats and abandoned $2,000,000 in gold, silver and copper coins in the hold of the wreck. In the same waters in 1628 a Dutch fleet of 24 ships chased into Matanzas 15 vessels of the Spanish Plate Fleet, loaded with a fabulous cargo of gold and silver from the New World. The Dutch seized $9,000,000 in loot but the defeated Spaniards scuttled several of their large galleons and thus dumped many more millions into the Bay.
Another Spanish galleon, the Santa Rosa, still hides some $30,000,000 in stolen Aztec gold in its rotting hulk off Key West, Florida.
The most fantastic of all Florida treasure-coast booty, however, is the $76,000,000 in pirate gold lying 25 feet under water some 40 miles off Pensacola. And who knows how many millions may be locked up in the pirate hoard of Jean Lafitte, who buried it somewhere in the lower reaches of Lavaca and Neches Rivers and Matagorda Bay in Texas?
And don’t worry about anyone’s claiming the sunken gold you recover. You don’t need any specific official approval to hunt for your fortune either in the ocean or in inland waters. Technically under common law, the U. S. Treasury has a right to collect all sunken or buried riches that anyone recovers in American territory. But actually the government never takes anything except its bite for income taxes and sticks to the finders-keepers rule.
Of course, if the wreck is a fairly recent one, there is always the possibility that the original owners may dispute your claim to the cargo. No one seems to know exactly how much time must elapse before a sunken fortune becomes the undisputed, legitimate prize for anyone who can recover it. Lawyers have filled books arguing over this point. Apparently, though, you’ll have no trouble proving your claim to any salvage treasure that’s been under water more than 35 years.

'The Evolution of Matter' and 'The Evolution of Forces' on CD
Years ago, I had been told by several people, that the US government frequently removes books they deem dangerous or 'sensitive' from libraries. Some are replaced with sections removed or rewritten so as to 'contain' information that should not be available to the public despite the authors intent. A key example was during the Manhattan Project when the US was trying to finalize research into atomic bombs. They removed any books that dealt with the subject and two of them were by Dr. Gustave Le Bon since they dealt with both energy and matter including radioactivity. I had been looking for these two books for many years and fortunately stumbled across two copies for which I paid about $40.00 each. I couldn't put down the books once I started reading them. Such a wealth of original discoveries, many not known or remembered today. / Page 88 - Without the ether there could be neither gravity, nor light, nor electricity, nor heat, nor anything, in a word, of which we have knowledge. The universe would be silent and dead, or would reveal itself in a form which we cannot even foresee. If one could construct a glass chamber from which the ether were to be entirely eliminated, heat and light could not pass through it. It would be absolutely dark, and probably gravitation would no longer act on the bodies within it. They would then have lost their weight. / Page 96-97 - A material vortex may be formed by any fluid, liquid or gaseous, turning round an axis, and by the fact of its rotation it describes spirals. The study of these vortices has been the object of important researches by different scholars, notably by Bjerkness and Weyher. They have shown that by them can be produced all the attractions and repulsions recognized in electricity, the deviations of the magnetic needle by currents, etc. These vortices are produced by the rapid rotation of a central rod furnished with pallets, or, more simply, of a sphere. Round this sphere gaseous currents are established, dissymetrical with regard to its equatorial plane, and the result is the attraction or repulsion of bodies brought near to it, according to the position given to them. It is even possible, as Weyher has proved, to compel these bodies to turn round the sphere as do the satellites of a planet without touching it. / Page 149 - "The problem of sending a pencil of parallel Hertzian waves to a distance possesses more than a theoretical interest. It is allowable to say that its solution would change the course of our civilization by rendering war impossible. The first physicist who realizes this discovery will be able to avail himself of the presence of an enemy's ironclads gathered together in a harbour to blow them up in a few minutes, from a distance of several kilometres, simply by directing on them a sheaf of electric radiations. On reaching the metal wires with which these vessels are nowadays honeycombed, this will excite an atmosphere of sparks which will at once explode the shells and torpedoes stored in their holds. With the same reflector, giving a pencil of parallel radiations, it would not be much more difficult to cause the explosion of the stores of powder and shells contained in a fortress, or in the artillery sparks of an army corps, and finally the metal cartridges of the soldiers. Science, which at first rendered wars so deadly, would then at length have rendered them impossible, and the relations between nations would have to be established on new bases."

14 Ways to Save Money on Fuel Costs
This eBook is the result of years of research into various methods to increase mileage, reduce pollution and most importantly, reduce overall fuel costs. It starts out with the simplest methods and offers progressively more detailed technologies that have been shown to reduce fuel costs. As a bonus to readers, I have salted the pages with free interesting BONUS items that correlate to the relevant page. Just filling up with one tank of gas using this or other methods explained here will pay for this eBook. Of course, many more methods are out there but I provided only the ones which I think are practical and can be studied by the average person who is looking for a way to immediately reduce their fuel costs. I am currently using two of the easier methods in my own vehicle which normally gets 18-22 mpg and now gets between 28 and 32 mpg depending on driving conditions. A tank of gas for my 1996 Ford Ranger costs about $45.00 here so I am saving around $15-$20 PER TANK, without hurting my engine and with 'greener' emissions due to a cleaner burn! The techniques provided in this ebook begin with simple things you can do NOW to improve your mileage and lower your gas costs. - eBook Download / More Info
The Physics of the Primary State of Matter
The Physics of the Primary State of Matter - published in the 1930s, Karl Schappeller described his Prime Mover, a 10-inch steel sphere with quarter-inch copper tubing coils. These were filled with a material not named specifically, but which is said to have hardened under the influence of direct current and a magnetic field [electro-rheological fluid]. With such polarization, it might be guessed to act like a dielectric capacitor and as a diode...
