TORONTO, Out., Kb. 21.--How proposes to shovel ot a k i l n ant! r o l l sections of roads, ho a'y* into one- end sides of houses, r-Mntorceil- floors, piling*, and beams o u t ot tho other, was related in d«tail to the-American Ceramic Society here by Prof. Joseph t!. Shaw, head of the. ceramics do-part- men'. ot Pennsylvania State College. He read the paper, prepared by him and his son, Myril 0. Shaw, at the ;i2nd a n n u a l meeting of the society, one of his throe con.iributicns to the meeting. His other two papers were ·A progress r e p o r t on abrasive tests of f i r e b r i c k at high temperatures, and a practical method of controlling the quart'/, content of tck'spar. ^ In t h i s new m a n u f a c t u r i n g process Prol. Shaw adopted I h o principles of processing steel to the requirements of coramlc materials, added some adv a n c e d Ideas of his o w n , and de- velo-ie.d. a r e v o l u t i o n a r y process.

Observations made %vhil·· testing fire bricks under pressure in 1'J.H gav« him t h o first giimpst) o ' t h i s new principle, Prof. Shaw s a i l . The'dis- tortion these bricks u n d e r w e n t at Uigu temperatures when subjei ted to press u r e demonstrated thai the clay flowed under those condition*, thus giving him the basis 1'or ili« first half of his new process. FacU discovered while working on slag b r i c k s in tho following few years led to the information which he Incorporated in the anneaHng process, th ·· concluding operation of this method Ho tound that through proper tmealing a strong crystalline product was obtained in which all the tendencies to crack or warp were eliminated, "This method," tho Penn State ceramist said, "has advantages over present processes in addition to open- Ing the Held 10 massive ceramic pieces impossible to make at present. It can be made entirely continue us, eliminating handling ot tho material and utilizing mechanical equlpini-nt for complete handling from clay bank to the linlshed article in the stock shed. Fuels used are no more, probably m u c h less, than used ui.d-er present processes. "It Is expected this pr eess will bo used in the p r o d u c t i o n of paving slabs, massive s t r u c t u r a l materials, to u.;e eyanite. CanUe, he pointed o u t , w i t h sllli- m a n t f i . a n d atut-ulasiu-. is the best n a t u r a l r e f r a c t o r y material k n o w n . The only a n d u l a s i t e deposit k n o w n in t h i s c o u n t r y , h o w e v e r , is owned and c o n t r o l l e d by a spark plug company, w h i l o there is no s.ilHmauite here, h u n c i r e d a of tons arc being imported rrotn India to wake tiro bricks. Cyan-ltd. he said, exists i i numerous extensive de-posits all through the Alleg h e n y M o u n t a i n s , but by no known commercial m e t h o d tuis it been possible heretofore to uso this material, due to its* peculiar jihyelcal properties. C y a n i t e , w h i l e posssss-lng tho same chemical makeup of andalastte and s,ilHmanile, c r u m p l e ? to a powder when shaped and Bred. By flrins it first a lid t h e n siiapinp. it. as the Penn Stall ceramist does : n his new p r u - i-es;», he handles it )\\si as ho does any nth':-:' c l a y or shale. I n this process the -MI tire procedure .{ m a n u f a c t u r i n g ceramics is reversed. The usual U K l i i o d is to shape Hie c l a y and t h e n tire it. but. the Penn H t a t t ceramist d e m o i - s t r a t r . d in his iab(?i atory , in the school c f mineral industries there t h a t it is '.'easible to f i r e the clay first and t h e n shape it. Tho raw e l n y is iivst burned, that iidizod, then to a plastic rolled or pres-ieU into shape, an steel is ha.uclk .1, atul then sent h a n aitaoaUiu f u r n a c e . Tho j is a douse, t o u g h product, whlcn and heavy refractory blocks. It seems likely that vitrified cl; y products made u n d e r t h i s process w i l l be used in m a n y canes where con rete is now used. Sea walls, piling, 1 eavy beams, foundations, building wal a, and similar articles which are of iargo dimensions, and which c a n u o be manufactured economically tint!or tho pres-* e n t practices, are the typ· of articles for the production of whi".h this process seems Ideal."
