Bible Students Find Tire Rationing Passage HARfciTSBURG, Pa. (UP)—<Bible - students hereabouts insist the Good Book envisioned tire rationing and , carries a prophesy of the cm-rent conservation of garment materials. Authority cited for the inevitabil- _ ity tire conservation is the 18th ,-verse, 3d chapter of Isaiah, reading: '•In that day. the Lord will take "• away the bravery of their tinkling " ornaiiients ab.out their feet, and ! their .cauls and their round tires, like the moon." *• Another verse in the same chap- T ter says "That changeable suits of apparel shall be taken away from \the people." - By ;NEA. Service Sweet tooths in what Undo Sam calls the ".sugar scanty areas" oi 'America's northeastern .states will not go unappeased—thanks to the -lowly sugar beet, which is stepping into the breach caused by the cane sugar shortage. The western and middle-western beet sugar •states are sending 200.01/0,000 pounds to the su^ar-hungry east, accompanied by Price Administrator 'Leon Henderson's sharp warning to industrial users to buy it up or "have only themselves to blame" if a sugar shortage .smacks them. We are all going to be using a lot more beet sugar in the near future. Normally it makes up 30 per cent of Americas annual sugar- bowl. l<ast year 795,000 acres were planted. This year, Department of Agriculture reports indicate, there will be a 24 per cent increase. The increase would be even greater if we bad. more .processing, mills. About 15 years ago, the west':; siijjjir beet.crop was faced with extinction by the curly top disease. But Bureau of Plant Industry workers developed new varieties that co.uld witlistand the blight. Then*it became necessary to produce our own seed. W-j used ,to have to import seed from Central Europe, where its production took two years and much hand labor. During World War I we had a seed famine, and just missed one in this war because we learned to produce our own before the war's outbreak stopped trade with Germany and Poland. Not only do we produce our own crop, but we do it in (J months with better! seeds, and have enough to supply England and our other allies. Furthermore, the American Beet Sugar Association is reported to be developing a stunt, of splitting the seeds, which just about doubles the supply.
