C., June 8.— Chemical research In the laboratories of the United States department of agriculture has resulted In transforming millions of tons of waste farm products into cold cash for growers. The story of scentlflc research In the utilization of farm by-products is a continuing one to which fresh chapters are being added almost weekly. Only recently, a new use for cotton seed meal, commonly used for cattle- feed, was discovered. Results "of nutrition studies on cotton seed meal revealed the product was rich In Vitamins G and B and excel- to* us* 1H W«atln« ffellAgaffc,- a seMbus nutritional disease especially prevalent in the smith, In thW retpect, cotton seed meal WAS revealed as a rival of yeast, which is the richest known natural sdurce* of these two vitamin*. Researches into uses of by-product* of corn and cotton have been specially fruitful of results. It ha* long been scientifically practicable to make high quality paper from corn stalks, and at least one plant has been formed for commercial manufactufe of such paper. The surplus of timber .for papeis however, has retarded growth of this new industry. , , , Development of the rayon industry Is a monument to the chemical laboratory's research In this field. Rayon Is made from the celelulose of cotton lint- ers, corn stalks, etc., and corn stalks are also being widely used to make wall board and Insulating materlalv An enormous business has been created In recent years based on the manufacture of insulating board from the bagasse of the sugar cane, formerly regarded as waste pulp of the cane flt only for fuel. So great Is the demand for bagasse that the new Industry not only takes all the South can supply, but Imports it from Cuba. Dh.

Furfural, formerly Imported at a cost of $30 a ton, Is how 6«lng utilized as a by-product of the oat processing industry to manufacture resins, paints, lacquers, etc., in which It la used as a solvent. Chemists believe It can be used also to make Insulating material. A by-product may even have by-products of its own. In pressing the cotton seed to extract, the oil the cotton fuzz was a nuisance. This fuze Is calfed Itnters. There now exists a large industry making a product of llnters which looks and feels like silk. It is also used in making mattresses, explosives, and other materials.
