Forester WASJHINGTQN.—Further progress irrexperimentst which ;proirijse'to: shift fhe Center of" American 'paper'-making from Canada to Maine to the forests of the South is reported in the annual bulletin issued by Robert Y. Stuart, forester of the United States Depart- -raent ?of '• Agriculture. "Unless all signs fail," Mr.. Stuart 'says, "the 'results of laboratory 'research' On pulpiiig of Southern woods soon will find important application In large-scale commercial developments. Interest hi this field Is-run- ning'high." A few months,the government-owned forest products -teboratory at Madison, Wis., made an announcements which atracted wide attention; namely, that on slash pine'free of heart wood the commercial sulphate process yields a .jAilp -satifsactory "in the making of white ! paper. iHeartwood makes its appearance in-slash 'pine at about 30 years. _, ^ Since this announcement, the-forest products laboratory haM developed a new «pulpingi process. wnich, f^Say-ief ^ fecttively eliminate the requirement" of resin-free wood in .paper making. •Thesprocess consists of "semi-chemical" impregnation of the wood with sodium sulphate and -sodium bicarbonate, followed ,by ordinary calcium sulphate • cooking. "Applied to resinous longleaf and slash ptaes,"- the' forester said, '"it produces a strong bleachable pulp comparable in ,<iuaiity ' to standard sulphate. 'The horizon of usefulness as paper making material not only for Southern pities but also for a large group of Nortrlern and Western species wiirbe indefinitely, widened if the new process, so successful 'experimen- t&lly/proves-adaptable In practice." • -In commenting upon the experi-' ments with slash pine, Mr. Stuart says: f "It was'demonstrated this year that the commercial sulphate process gives satisfactory pulps frosh slash pine free of heartwood and earlier investigations have shown that ground-wood pulp of satisfactory color and average strength can be produced from young slash pine with reasonable power expenditure. While rapid, growth of the tree is eminently desirable for rhaxi- mum volumes of pulps, late studies have shown that as a rule slow-grown material yields pulps of somewhat higher strength.

Natural ©is Corp, Britain Withdraws From Airship Field Germany and U. S. Alone as No Other Country Building Ships LONDON.—When very shortly the clatter of hammers and the flare of torches reduces airship R-100 to neat piles of junk, it will mark the end of England's proud forty million dollar dream of leading the world in airships. It will mean more than that. It will mean that England has definitely gone out of the airship game. It \vill leave to the United States the definite championship in s naval airships and to Germany the definite championship, in commercial airships. Other 'countries are not in it and never : h'ave been. A Sad Salvage The. end' of the chapter was definitely written when the British government made the brief announcement that it had given the contract to a firm of-metal dealers to break up the R-100 at Cardington whore she is moored. The ship cost about .$2,500.000. -The price forw^hich the metal in her-was sold was nbt me&tioned,"J)ut it prob- SablySfloes ^-not.:. exceed i$25,01K)., .The government is retaining the gas-bags. A small part of the metal will be retained and out of this souvenirs wilt be made for sale. The balance of the duralumin framework will go to the successful bidders. They expect to get some 54 tonf of metal. For a time the Britain government hoped to sell the R-100 to the United States government, but nothing came of it. Persistent III Luck England has had more bad than good luck with airships. In 1919 the R-34, built according to plans gathered by British engineers from German Zeppelins brought down during the World War, thrilled the British people by being the firs tto cross' the Atlantic. In July, 1919, she flew to New York in 108'hours and came back in 75. In 1921- she-was wrecked'at Howden. And from that time on most of the breaks were against the British. There were a number 'of mishaps, one of the. worst being with the R-38 which the government built for sale to the United States Navy. August 24, 1921J she broke in two arid fell in flames while she was on a trial 'flight over England. Commander Campbell, her constructor, and a'"crew of ydung American naval officers and men were in her and 44 of them perished. There was a pause for some time and then several years ago the British entered upon a grand scheme of airship building. Simultaneously the R-100 and the R-101 were constructed. Their cost, together with giant air sheds and mooring masts, ran up to about ten million dollars. The R-10C was designed for passenger trans-At- lantic flight between Britain and the United' States and Canada, if it could be proved to be commercially success- 'fore in order," Persons familiar with paper making and with the government experiments discussed above vision a possible solution of the South's problem of cut- over timbre lands through the growing of slash pine for use as pulp wood. ^Plastic Cement Liquid Roof Coating An asphalt compound re-enforced with asbestos fibre.

The R-101 was designed for ail service to India and back. If they were successful, more were to be built. The R-100 left her home base at Cardington July 28, 1930, and reached Montreal in slightly less than 79 hours. A Tragic End Then came the turn of the R-101. She left on Saturday night October 4, 1930, on her trial trip to India. She was a proud ship, considered the last word in construction, with ample berth accomodations for passengers, lounges, dining room and other things reminiscent of a true ocean vessel. The flower ot Britain's airminded men •were on her, headed by Lord Thomson, Secretary for Air. In the early hours of Sunday morning October 5 news came about the R-101 had met with a terrible disaster. The giant air liner had crashed on a hillside near Beauvais. France, anci almost her entire crew and passenger list had lost their lives when she 'became a seething hell of flames and explosions. The terrible doom of the ship and 48 out of 54 of her passengers also marked the doom of airship programs for England. France Bows Out The French got out of the big airship game almost before it got in. Under the peace treaties Germany delivered to them the Zepp known as L-72, which they re|VirisHened' the Dixffiude. She was sent out by the" French government on a cruise over the Mediterranean, and North Airica_ in'December^'1923. She never returned. Since then the French have adopted a plan for very small ships. One they call the Veldettes. They have only 123,500 cubic feet gas capacity and are intended for coastal observation. The Escorteur type have 353,000 cubic feet gas capacity and' are intended for convoy purposes. , w Italy only made two attempts to build big ships. The N-l constructed in 1925 was loaned to Roald Amundsen and called The Norge. In her, accompanied by Umberto Nobile, her, constructor, he flew from Rome to England, then to Oslo, Leningrad and Spitsbergen, over the North Pole to Alaska where she was deflated. In 1927 the citizens of Milan subscribed the funds for another ship in which Nobile flew to the North Pole but was wrecked on the way back. Germans Mfcrc Pioneers Germany possessed in the Zeppelin works at' Friendschahfen, the oldest airship plant in the world. It was founded in 1900 and regularly turned out Zepps until after the war, when for a time its activities were curtailed by the peace treaties. Later restrictions were removed and work was resumed. The Zepps had their tragedies, but the Germans kept right at it. September 10, 1913, the L-l was wreck-, ed' over Heligoland and 15 of her crew were killed. On October 16 of the same year the L-2 exploded at Berlin and 28 of her crew were killed. Of course a considerable number were brought clown by the British during the World War when Zepps came to England on bomb dropping expeditions. People's Pennies Build GrGaf Resumption of work on a big scale was only made possible in 1925 when the German paople contributed over 2,000,000 marks to what was known as the Zeppelin-Eckener fund.

Not only •was she safely flown to the United 'States, -but her total mileage is well vore 120,000. The recent completion and trial flights of the enormous Akron, the biggest ever built, of course, puts America definitely beside Germany in the airship game. Phone 314 HOPE TRANSFER & STORAGE CO. E.
