SOYBEANS C'onlijiucil Irum I'aga I. Inc first soybeans were brought to the United Slates. "The war years," Mr. Slrayer said, ••emphasized the place of soybeans in the agriculture of the United Slates." The war abroad shut off sources of two-thirds of the world supply of fats and oils and'U.S. soybean acreage doubled, lie said. Farmers of the South, he said, contributed greatly to the supply of scarce oil through the frowth of soybeans. Mr. Straycr iwlnted out that from eight 10 10 pounds of oil can bc- obtained /rom one bushel of soy- beam. There then'remains about 15 pounds of soybean meal, which contains from 40 to 45 per cent vegetable protein. He also pointed out the food and industrial uses of both, including the large use of soybean meal for feeding livestock. Many Uses for Soybean Meal "We have only scratched, the surface in the use of soybean meal," he said. "No other product has produced so much oil and protein." The soybean now has more industrial and chemical use than It has ever had in the U.S., he also said. Urging increased soybean production for use as human iood, he said,- "We must grow, handle and ship human food as cheaply as possible," Mr. Straycr also pointed out the benefits brought by the use of soybean as a rotation crop with corn and cotton. Soybeans originally came to this country from China and Manchuria aiVd there arc stiH only three or four U.S. varieties.
