^SATURDAY, JANUARY 9, 1937 " rr " EIIIS; China From Tennessee Glay Tennessee Valley Develop-i merit Opens Way to New Industry By NEA Service KNOXVILLE, 'Tenn.—Within the shadow of Norris Dam a Email group of men have transformed gray Tennessee Valley clay Into light, white, egg-shell porcelain dinnerware that is acclaimed as fine as any in the world—tile first time that porcelain has been made from clay found in this country. Up to now, either the clay or the finished, product has been tin- ported from Europe or Asia. And capping the achievement of open- Ing Amerira's clay deposits to In- '•istry, for the first lime the firing baking has been done uy'clec- .ricity. According l o s, T. Henry of spruce Pine, N. C.. who conceived .tie idea for the experiment, their success will have far-reaching consequences. It means, for Instance, that high grade dinnerware will become avall- iblc In this country at a low price -possibly low enough so it can be iotd in tin? lowest-priced stores. It means a new, major iridus- :ry in the United slates. Now you liave" only lo took at the back of your plates, cups and saucers lo see lhat they come from Japan, Eng- laha,-France, Poland and Checho- slovakia. Hereafter, in times of "war, we no longer will have to depend on other countries for the kaolin vitally essenlial to make spark plugs and electric insulation needed in military .transport. The fact that North Carolina, Georgia and Alabama have rich deposits of kaolin is not news. Up to now small '.quantities of it have been used in a mixture with i ported kaolin. The real news is that porcelain can be made from the native clay. Also that, in such a refined state, It can take the place of imported kaolin. Mr. Henry and TVA administrators picked one Robert ' E. Gould, an American ceramics engineer lo head the experimental laboratories. Mr. Gould, then chief engineer of a ceramics plant in Po land, picked his staff' and set t' work. After months of experiment 'ng with a washing and settlini process that had not been used be Jlwc, they found ways and mean •a remove all impurities from tli jrative kaolin. Electric Oven Invented Next war tackled'job No. 2, firin by electricity! Up to |now electricit had been used'in a small way i: firing fiecoraligns pn, pprcelai, ware, but this -called .for'.a- temperature of only 'around .'900 "degree fahrenheit, whereas the TVA re searchers required a temperature o 2500 or more degrees for fusing tin kaolin, felspar and quartz into porcelain. ' . . The use of heat units made of metal was out of the picture Metal would not stand up under such heat. Experiments were made with other materials. Finally car- borundum bars were decided on They 'worked. See Wasle Reduced Mr. Gould and his' electrical experts want to find a material that will last even longer than car- borundum. They think that they have found it. It is graphite in a •vacuum inside a carborundum bar One furnace with such resistors lias been kept at 2600 degrees shTce last April,and the units haven't burned out yet.. • A much larger kiln is being built It will be the only one in the country and a high degree of efficiency is expected of it. Up to now ceramic plants have fired with oil, gas or coke. Electricity is believed to have several hi" advantages, provided it can be bought cheaply. Mr. Henry said electric fifing will greatly reduce the waste because the heat can b° Wntcolled nnd is more uniform ^ liforin heating js important be- KUtse if, for instance, more heat BUS one side of a cup than the other, it will warp or break it.

Simple Cakes Often Spoiled by Too Prolonged Beating, Too much beating may spoil the cake, if it' Is not very rich, says Miss. Colcman, home demonstration agent.- It ruins the texture, and makes the product" tough and full of tunnels. Too much beating after the flour is added spoils more plain''cakes and: muffins than any Other one "thing. • '•" •' In making muffins, using 2 cups j flour, 3 teaspoons baking powder,' 1-2 teaspoon salt, one egg, one cup of milk and 3 tablespoons fat. Miss Gertrude E. Conant, extension nutritionist; University of Arkansas College', of Agriculture, recommends ' a three-step mixing method. First, mix and sift all dry ingredients together; then combine beaten egg,. milk and melted Jat- and, as the third step, add liquid to the dry mixture, stirring just enough- to • moisten all ingredients The rather sliff batter, still with a rough appearance, is baked about 35 minutes in a hot oven. The liquid material should be all the same temperature when combined, the eggs, and milk at room temperature . and . the melted fat warm. • A plain cake can be made with one cup sugar, 4 tablespoons fat 2 eggs, 1-2 cup milk, 1 1-2 cups flour, 1-2 teaspoon salt, and 2 teaspoons of baking powder.
