It will be easy to eliminate soot, dust and fumes when it becomes profitable for owners to do so and, from what chemical en gineers recently discussed at Columbia university a new process may make it a paying proposition to do so. Engineers have long worried qver loss of potential weallh along with the smoke that spouts out of chimneys and have studied ways to retrieve valuable ingredients, such as sulphur. The word is that a new process recovers sulphur, removes nitrous and hydrochloric acid fumes, the two other gases most responsible for air pollution. More important, the value of the recovered sulphur goes far toward making the "scrubbing of the air financially practicable. MEXICO'S COOD EXAMPLE With the United States anxious to prevent the shipment of war materials from this country to a nation engaged in war, the possibility of evading restrictions by shipping through a neutral nation has been evident. The rllexican government, however, has advised the slate department that it will not serve as an intermediary for such commerce without the consent of the United States. This means that Mexico, while selling war material of. its own manufacture to the Spanish government, will not be a party to the violation of the policy of a neighboring nation. I President Cardenas, it is said, acted against the advice of some snoutd nave enjoyea tuning mem, but somehow be didn't. ' "Nettie.
