:PAGE EIGHT BLYTHEVTLLE, (ARK,) COURIER NEWS MONDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1941 BUSINESS^ Quantities Held Adequate With Development Of Many Substitutes CLEVELAND CUP)—Virtually all metals necessary to the defense program- exist in adequate quantities in the 'Western Hemisphere or can be replaced by satisfactory domestic.!, substitutes, according to W.- H. Eisenman, secretary of the American Society for Metals. Eisenman, in a discussion of the place of metals in the defense program,'said, "the government some time ago inaugurated a policy of acquiring and storing certain materials' normally imported. ••The army and navy munitions boards class the following as strategic metals: nickel, tin, antimony, tungsten, manganese, chromium and mercury. Most of these metals are used extensively as alloys of steel (or armor plate, guns, machinery and other uses. "Cana'da supplies 90 per cent of the world's nickel, and most of the antimony used in the United States comes from Mexico.'Manganese no ' longer reaches us from Russia and South Africa, but there are deposits in Cuba and South America which will, with refined low grade manganese ore, meet the nation's needs," he added. - Tin Stocks Stored Eisenman pointed out that tin conies from the Dutch East Indies, but that, smelters are being built ill this country for refining Bolivian tin i ore. He said there is enough manganese in "reserve in the United States to last nearly two years and enough tin for one year. Tungsten " imports from China have dropped off, Eisenman said, but deposits estimated ai * 30.000,000 tons have been found in Nevacia and a $250,000 refining plant has been completed there. He pointed .out, that.molybdenum can be substituted for tungsten in many cases and that the,United States has a world monopoly on molybdenum.* i Commenting on iron and steel needs, Eisenman said that alloys and methods of manufacture pros', cssed considerably during 1940 "The use of gray iron has shown a steady increase." he said, "as a result of laboratory and production line proof that it responds well to heat treatment Today, high quality gray iron castings are being heat treated, completely or at pcints. where special .qualities are required, and with satisfactory result?." ;..,,. J ., Stainless Steel' Favored "Eisenman said that stainless steel is coining into-use in aircraft manufacture. It is heavier-]than aluminum -" alloys'/' but . stronger. Both metals.-are being! used in increasing ~ amounts iri the j defense pio- gram. --'- • - • • " • Discussing', non.-ferrous metals, Eisehman 'saidt "First' oh' the •list She Makes Mercy Her Mission By Giving Blood Transfusions "My idea is 1o train one pelican to do the \vprk of a hundred pigeons/' New Winter Suit Fire Eating Helps Pay Expenses At Harvard CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (UP)—Reed B. Dawson of . Mount • Vernon, N. Y.. is paying part of his college expenses by acting as n "fire-eater." He i.s a junior at Harvard and his acts have made nun a popular attraction at Boston parties. His specialty is setting fire !to his hands and letting the flames creep up his arms. "It really^ only tickles," he said, "though most people think you are burning to death. I do it all with chemicals." Swallowing fire, he says, is just like breathing" in warm', air' •• —• if done properly. Dawson needs more chemicals before.''he can put on a big show because, without them, "even a" lighted'-match--burns the roof of my mouth.*' : • . : By NKA. Service WASHINGTON .—To 'hundreds of people throughout the U. s.,' 42- year-old Mrs. Rose McMullin of Washington is a symbol-6£. mercy, hi the past 12 months she has traveled 29,000 miles,' by plane and rail and car, to give .''53,05)3 cubic • centimeters 'of her 'lire- blood—53 quarts—in 256 transfusions. All she has charged • were expenses. • In 1935 Mrs. McMullin's, niece, then four, was dying .of a , siaphylococ-eus infection resulting from a Fourth of July burn. Only chance for t her recovery lay in discovering some one who had recovered from the same infection No one could he. found. So Mrs. 1 McMulJin herself submitted to inoculation with the germs. She almost died. But once recovered, she . was immune and able to give her little niece life-saving transfusions. : ' Appeals for aid have come." to her by . the thousands..' They come from "all over the country. As many as she could, she has heeded.. ." •'• Doctors seldom permit a blood donor to submit more than, a single transfusion every six- we'eks —after all,-the human body, holds only about five or six quarts of blood. But during- 1940.the remarkable Mi-si McMullin averaged a transfusion every, day and a half. Although physicians have often warned her that death may ' ;end tier work, Mrs. McMullin, plans to keep on giving her blood : to" sufferers from staphylococcus ; arius and streptococcus viridans until it does. She likes to think .of her unique career as an ••''assignment from God."
