They did not sty where the instruction* would come from. By Dale M. John. United Press Staff Correspondent BARTOW. Fla. (UP)—The byproduct ol a 2,030,000-} far-old disaster offers new hope to the earth's hungry people today. Rich deposits ol phosphate, urgently needed to fertilize soil drained of its productive capacity during the war years, lie here beneath the heart of Florida's citrus fruit bolls. The deposit: are near the resort towns of Winter Haven and Lakeland. To help meet the demand for fertiliser. Noralyn, one of the world's largest phosphate mines, expects to begin full-scale production this month. The ore, from which Noralyn will produce 1,500.000 tons of phosphate a year, comes from the bones and teeth of countless fish and mammals destroyed by the convulsions of a planet's growing pain*. Sciential* Explain Scientists say the rise and fall of the earth's crust and the sudden descent of glaciers caused Flor- .da's phosphate deposits. Some 3,000,000 year* ago, they explain, myrl»d» of shell fish, sharks, manatee and whale* lived in the warm tropical waters which covered Florida. The land emerged from the sea to meet the glacier age. Horde* of mammals, including the mammoth, the saber-toothed tiger and the three-toed horse, were driven southward, to death Irora jreeaing and overcrowding. Then the loe melted. Once more the Florida peninsula sank into Uu aea. The bone* and teeth that remained were .covered by earth, sand and clay. Later the land rose from the sea again and the peninsula of Florida remained. Still to be found in the phosphate deposit* are 'many fossilized remains, including teeth. Jawbones and vertebrae ol the mammoth, which carry It to a "flotation" plant where phosphate Is .separated from foreign mtvucr, chiefly white sand. Alter the phosphate is recovered, it Is dried by giant oil burners and treated with nclds so it will be absorbed easily by life. Demand Brisk During the war years phosphate ! production In the United States was about equal to the country's needs. With the end of the war, foreign demand rose sharply. According to the Department of Commerce, ferliiiier supplies still are Insufficient to maintain maximum crop yields all over the world. Noralyn's capacity is described by Franklin Piirley, vice president in charge of International's phosphate division, as double the amoucH of phosphate needed to supply the minimum needs ol a country the siie of Italy fur one growing season. That la equivalent to about one- fifth of the phosphate production in the United States. Florida phosphate account* for 75 per cent of the domestic supply and nearly half the world production.
