Prof. Walter Loehwing, head of the University of Iowa's botany department, Monday gave credit to this product as a food and source of artificial wool and plastics, in addition to its earlier importance as a soil building crop and as stock food. Soybean meal has been developed into an artificial wool by the U. S. regional agricultural laboratories and the synthetic product compares favorably with sheep wool for blankets, felt, upholstery, and suiting fabrics, Prof. Loehwing said. "It is filling a vital place in the war effort as a source of edible oils and food pastes which are being made into meat substitutes. In 1943, lend-lease alone purchased one million pounds ot soybean flour and grits for our military allies," he declared. He said that such products al- :ady have a prominent place in the so-called "K" ration of the United States army and the use of soybean plastics is Increasing on a phenomenal scale. . · : ·'·' "The perfect way in which soy products meet the requirements" of diet, wartime transportability, and storage have led to the export of most of America's production and' left the home folks largely unaware of the unique place which these probably will assume in our post-war economy," declared the university botanist Inflict Losses on Nazi Troops in Dalmatia London', (U.PJ--Jugoslav partisan troops are inflicting heavy losses on a crack German Alpine division in Dalmatia, and have captured the town of Promina a communique s a i d Thursday.
