MONDAY, MAY 8, 1850 New Plant May Help Arkansas Farmers; Sericea for Paper E (AKK.) COUKIEK NEWS By Hurley PershJug PET IT J E A N STATE PARK, Ark,, May 8. <AP)— A plant which ! thrives on Arkansas" farm weary' lands has been converted into a high grade of paper pulp. The cultivation of the plant, scrl- cea, may mean a new industry for ^ikansas and a new supply for the ^j-ion's hungry paper mills. DRvelopninet of the process for converting sericca into paper pulp v.';xs explained at the 34th meeting j of the Arkansas Academy of Silence \dticli opened here Friday. Details of the v:ei'e explained by Dr. Maurice E. Barker, head of the University of Arkansas chemical engineering departnient. Mo=L of the research us conducted by four students under Or. Barker. They were Mark fjeseni, Jack Griffin. John Delaloye and Jules llcn- ilrix. Of I.espcdcza Family What Ls .sericea? Dr. Barker described it as a member of the le.spedez:» family. It is a perennial legume which at full pro\vth closely i-escmble.s young riv-M- ixrtiom cane. HP explained the process lor reducing sericca to paper pulp this way: First the ."talks are cooked by a modified sulfale process. After sev-I eral hours in the vats the stalks are reduced to n substance resembling rough tobacco. This then is plarcri in a beater, a machine that works like an electric mixer. After several minutes in the beater the fibers arc separated and the sub- stance'is ready for processing into paper. All Grades of Paper Barker said all grades of can be made for sericca. w includes a high grade of rayon. Scricea grows best on waste or bud of poor soil content, explained Dr. Barker. After the second year the olants grow to a height of about six feet. Harvesting the crop does present a problem, s^ys Dr. Darker, but It Is easily overcome. The plant has to be chopped down by hand. The problem is passage through a field of mature sericca. Dr. Barker said the plants grow so closely together that 1L is hard work for H person to force his way through a seri- cea field. - ' One of the advantages of producing the plant is that the soil is improved after a harvest. The reason: at maturity the plant's leaves nnd small stems fall to the ground, adding needed minerals nnd the roots add nitrogen to Use soil. Yield Could Increase He estimated thnt the yield of corn ami cotton could be increased nj£rly five times when planted in s<Wp on which sericeu hns grown for-five years. The cost of planting sericeu? pr. Barker said it is almost negligible when comparer! with the price paid for paper pulp. Seed for an acre of ground costs about $10. Yield from the acre Is about two and one half tons of dry stalks. ; CRACKER BARREL" KICK-OFF - A nationwide "Cracker Barre Campaign" got underway in Philadelphia, witb little De" oral, (feed becoming the Hrst person to sign a petition for better government, a, her mother, Mrs. Franklin Heed, watched Watching the proeoodmgs, left to right, are: Arthur Kaufman RoLnrt U Johnson, aalional chairman ot the campaign, and Uncle Sam portrayed by Edward L.
