N D U S T R I A L REVOLUTION NOT YET OVER Continued from Page Four, ilacing wood, glass, metal and paper n the making of such products as ountain pens, ash-trays, jewelry, dlchcnwarc, and knickknacks. Artificial fibres are made from iclluloso which in turn is produced rom plant stalks. Rayon is a well- tnown artificial "silk"' fibre. But now "wool" fibres are to be spun in actorics rather than sheared on the ;hccp ranches. Bifi changes are ihead in woolen mills, sheep raising, and allied occupations. Synthctle rubber has long been a dream of the chemists--not-just to make rubber cheaper than it can be 'raised," but t o , do things natural rubber cannot do. They have flnal- y succeeded but costs are still too ligh. Coal is a major ingredient. Gasoline under a new hydrogenation rocess also comes from coal. These wo development"! give new hope to thnt hard-hit industry. Television still has technical problems which prevent it from being successful commercially. It is now out o£ the laboratory, however, and is a sure-fire new industry within ihis'generation. The changes which television would bring beggar the imagination. 3. HOUSING. This: was the major laggard in our 1835-37 business recovery. It is the key log in our current economic jam. Prefabrication will some day force building to drop its medieval "hammer, arid saw" customs but so far results have been disappointing. Habits and building people are holding back the factory- house. The poor comparison of hand-made $10,000 house,with a factory-made SI ,000 automobile means prefabrication win win in the end Factory-houses, along with , cotton pickers, will create the biggest and sharpest change In our industrial life Air conditioning- is making steady prograses. 1937 sales were SO per cent above 1936. But the markc will never be big in the residcntia field except in new homes. It is a tnilor-made. cosily engineering job to air-condition an old house. The Industry, however, has n groat future in commercial fields. It will help to stimulate industrial migration into warmer climes. 4. TRANSPORTATION has -pos Mbililies too. Mobile homes--real, factory-made houses on wheels--fit righ in with the "farm in summer-factor} in winter" program. A ]qw-pricec airplane would add another boom ii the one which the aircraft maker are already enjoying. Moreover rumors of a more economical car buretor may point'the motor indus try's life-line into new high grounc Some of these new Industries ar just crawling out of their cribs; bu others are already big businesses They would hold the promise of mil lions of new Jobs, of continuing th upward march of the American tandard of living. Revise our tax ystcm, encourage capital to push long these young industries. Then he present era o£ unemployment, of abor strife, and of political hatred rill become just another chapter In 10 history of Amercan progress! Shaft Nearly Completed: . .
