By NBA Service APPl.ETON, WIs.-Thc wolf who couldn't blow down the brick house built, by the three little pigs would have an equnlly frustrating time if he tried to Imir and puiv until he blew (he paper house down. Scientists have built a house in tills Wisconsin town, using nothing but paper for walls, roof, decora I Ions, window shades and even carpeting. Built on an experimental basis, to show that paper can be used for emergency housing, tlie Mouse has so far shown itself nigged enough to withstand strong winds, heavy rain and snowfall, as well us protracted hot and dump weather. For less than $CO, tlie cost of construction, that is quite a house. Scientists [joint out that the scarcity of paper is chic to circumstances of war, and not because there is any shortage of wood, from which most paper is made. Forests today are being grown under sound principles of scientific management, that fissure a continuous supply of wood for pulp, jiapcr nnd kindred products when war demands arc relaxed. KAS1I.Y ASSEMBLED The paper house, covering an area about 8 feet by 1C feet, Is not a large structure, but results indicate that additional units could be added to provide any space desired. Tills one-story house was built of 21 prefabricated panels including four lloor panels which' were placed In Immediate contact with the ground. The paper used is chipboard, which Is made on paperboard machines from waste pa- per only, ami is reenforced with u material llmt is <.'xm'<lln«ly dieaii and relatively noii-erltlcal. A minimum of wood and metal connectors was used. A few days after the experimental house was -erected, n terrific wind and rain storm struck Ap- pieion nnd vicinity, wind velocities up lo !>o m.p.h. were recorded as (lie storm damaged 'buildings and felled trees.In Its ferocity. Inspection of the house showed thai no damage Imd been done, Hint It had not even shifted on Its sills although nncIiurnecK had not yet been provided.

The WPB committee estimates that only about 50 million square feet of the hide will be available, compared with 90 million last year.

">' cl} l> • 1945, t we tire required $$M$WW«'* matt needs: BEEF: 60% of choice, good, and commercial steers and heifers, except extremely light weights. 70% of all utility steers, heifers and cows. 80% of all cutters and canners. PORK: 50% approximately, of dressed weight. LAMB: 40% to 50% of choice and good lambs. VEAL: 50% approximately, of choice, good, antTcom- mercial veal produced within specifications; LARD: 75%, approximately, of production in accordance with recent order; sen on? shortage of meat for the civilian population. The current incut situation is not peculiar to any local area. The problem is national in scope. Government figures indicate a decrease of 38% of civilian meat supplies is expected during this quarter (January to March, inclusive) as compared with a year ago. The decrease will vary on ihc different types of meat. It is also estimated that during the second quarter of this year (April to June, inclusive) a decrease of 35% is expected. Consumer misunderstanding and dissatisfaction also arises from another important factor that does not show up in these figures. The civilian population has more money now than in 1939 and fewer goods on which to spend it. Also, imorc people arc working longer hours and need more food . . . particularly meat. The demand for meat has, therefore, increased tremendously. The Federal Government accepts only Federally inspected meats. Tin's, of course, places a tremendous burden .'on those packers, like the St. Lottis Independent Packing Company, which operate under Federal inspection. AH Mayrosc brand meats arc Government inspected. ST. LOUIS INDEPENDENT PACKING COMPANY MEAT PRODUCTS
