Hello, Humidity! – Strength Magazine – July, 1924

Very recently a motion picture was shown in New York City showing a number of men and women confined in an air-tight chamber with candles for illuminating purposes. It was shown that as the candles became dim because of low Oxygen, the people showed evidence of discomfort and fin~ · became unconscious from Oxygen starvation. It was a very thrilling scene, but not based upon fact, as I hare explained. The writer of the scenario had the usual superficial know ledge of the amount of Oxygen air must contain to sustain life.
