Thursday - Friday "SILVER RIVER" ERROLL FLYNN - ANN SHERIDAN ALSO ALWAYS TOGETHER By ALTON L. RLAKF.SLCE Aswcliid Frrtu Science KtporUr CHICAGO, S«pt. 1. (AP)—Saw- dint can b« turned into synthetic lopsoil to grow bigger, greener vegetables. Dr. Eduard Farbtr of Washington, D.C. said today. ' Chemically treated, the sawdust becomes like humus, to nourish crops, lie told the American chemical Society. ' Erosion robs the nation of millions of. tons of precious topsoil annually. And lumbering piles uu mountains of sawdust, estimated at 60 million tons a year, for which there are no great uses. •The new chemical piocesa might help solve both problems, said Dr. Farber, of the Timber Engineering Co. Early tests with the snwdnst topsail have been promising, he said. Seeds Germln»t« Sooner From 10 to M toits of converted sawdust were applied to an acre of soil. Seed* germinated sooner, and more of them germlnattd, he snid, "Unves were bigger »nd greener, the weights of produce like ind ra<l! s f]«, beets, onions, and tomatoes were greater." The sawdust is treated »'ith mineral gelds, at temperatures well over the boiling point of water, but not hot enough to char the cellules- materials in the lawdust. h« explained. The sawdust "forms humus-like substances by loss of water aJid some side reactions. We need products which act like humus to improve our soils." This Is Just one of new chemical treatments being developed to make economic use or sawdust and other wood wastes from himberlns, Dr. Farbtr said. Present methods turn some waste wood products into lur- fural, a raw material tor nylon and for. resins, or Into sugart or feed lor animals. War Reporters Die in Crash TOKYO, Sept. 7.
