    During his spare time, J. D. Redus of the United States navy station atthe
    United States submarine base in Honolulu, made two lamps fromgunshells and
    presented one to his mother, Mrs. I. N. Redus and the otherto his sister Mrs.
    W. C. Surratt, Jr., both of Dallas.
    One of the lamps is made from a shell that is larger than the
    Frenchseventy-five. The shell was polished and a flower design hammered on
    theside. A native wood of the Hawaiian Islands was used for a base of
    thelamp. A small lamp was made from a one-pound bullet.
    Both the lamps are on exhibit in the windows of the Howell Furniturecompany.
