FRIDAY, OCTOBER T, 1955 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS PAGE SEVEN Faure Defends Morocco Policy By HARVEY HUDSON' PARIS (AP) — Premier Edgar Faure, waging an uphill fight for the life of his weakened government, today faced a barrage of criticism of his North African policies in the National Assembly.

The Cabinet authorized him to seek a vote of confidence — perhaps on Monday — Her four Gaullist ministers refused to go along with his program and were forced out. Weakened by the loss of Gaullist support, as well as by many defections in the ranks of Peasants and independents, Faure appeared to face an impossible task of rallying the required 314 votes in the 627-member house. However, several factors might save his seven-month-old administration. Mastering Rebellion He already has turned aside threats from a group of independents to force the resignation of more ministers, including Foreign Minister Antoine Pinay. Another factor was that French military forces appeared to be mastering the rebellion of tribesmen in the Riff Mountains of northern Morocco. Resident Genera! Pierre Boyer de Latour, anxious to win over the rebels, turned them loose after accepting their arms. Further south, however, in the Atlas Mountains the warlike Berbers were said to be vanishing sullenly into their hideouts where their fighting spirit might flare anew _ at any time.

Nam»_ Addr«i«_ CHy —(RUTILE) The Sleeping Giant' Points to A Fabulous Future on Our Doorstep- TITANIUM In the MAGNET COVE Area! 19 Outstanding Companies now in Continuous Research for new processes. Reprints from September Issue of MODERN METALS ''Report of Investigations 5064 (U. S. Bureau of Mines) July Iflo-I, i-n which they estimated ore reserves in the three cohimbium-bearing titania deposits (Magnet Cove Titanium Corp.. Christy brookite, Hardy-Walsh Deposit at 8,000,000 tons , . . and (he Columbium content of these reserves was estimated to be 12,000,000 pounds," *The Bureau considers the columbiiim-bearing RUTILE deposits of Arkansas important because they comprise the largest known potential source of columbium in the United Stales." Did yon know that documented facts by Government Agencies indicate that there are millions of •tons of titani'iim (Hulile) and Columbium that should sustain a large, new industry in the Magnet Cove area? New Process Plates Titanium With Chromium Tiarco Laboratories Corp., Clark, N. J., have developed a process for plating titanium with chromium. Called the Baylig process, it is chimed to be the first !o successfully plate titanium directly with chromium without any chipping or pealing under the most severe tests. According to Frank Ri//o, president of Tiarco, the process was perfected nearly a year ago. Tiavco has been working privately during this time with various companies such as Buffalo Arms in order to test the process completely. Tests have been completely successful, Rmo reports. •Paul Topelian, director, of research and partner in the concern, believes the Bayli£ process will open the way for more extensive use of titanium by industry because of the metal's very high coefficient of friction. Chromium, on the other hand, has one of the lowest co-efficients of friction and is one of the hardest metals known. It is also very resistant to attack by most chemicals and atmospheres. Chromium plated titanium parts have been subjected to several physical tests at Tiarco. When plated strips of RC-70 titanium were given the reverse-bend test, there was no chipping or peeling of the deposited chromium. When a plated sample was struck repeatedly with the edge of a hammer, the marks of the blows were quite visible but the chromium followed the indentions without cracking. In another test a piece of plated titanium 150-A alloy was subjected to a buffing wheel with polishing compound traveling at a very high rate of speed. J Held to the wheel for almost five min- j utes to one spot, it became exceedingly j| hot but there was no "giving away" of the chrome. A mirror-like finish with ;j exceptional smoothness was the result. Another tough test called for heating a piece of plated titanium to 1600° F. ft and then quickly quenching the part in : cold water. Adhesion was perfect, ac| cording to Topelian. Tiarro has de\ eloped similar processes for chromium plating aluminum and steel. The company is issuing licensing agreements whereby manufacturers and commercial concerns may use one or more of its proa^srs under a royalty arrangement.
