No small measure of credit for their resurrection belongs to modern techniques of underwater cutting with the oxy-hydrogen flame and underwater welding with the electric arc. These methods are serving the nation's needs in wartime, and are also opening the way to new peacetime ac complishments in submarine salvage and construction.
