Today the industry Is suddenly' face to face with such fart's of life as over-capacity here and there,! ; keen competition, price qtieasiness' land even the hard-sell. j | But industry leaders say it's i merely a matter of getting their i second wind: the industry is funda- j ! mentally healthy: and leading, companies continue their expan- j stem plans. They insist that neither i product possibilities nor market j potentials have begun to be ex- i hnusted yet. | The very lushness of the petro- j chemical growth since the war at-1 tracted a rush of companies into I the field and may have 'caused I temporary over-expansion in some j products. Some 80 oil companies j and 80 chemical companies are making one or more petrochemical j products derived from petroleum and natural gas. Rubber companies have jumped in, and now nearly a third of their sales are accounted for by their chemical subsidiaries. "Capacity slightly above demand is normal in American business— or was before the abnormal postwar boom years," points out an j official of the Oronite Chemical Co., subsidiary of the Standard iOil Co. of California.

K. BUTTKRFIEM) NEW YORK ff — Big league baseball, back on TV in quite a few cities for another season, looks a lot belter to me on the I home screen than from any grandstand. This is especially so when I see those fans bundled up in winter overcoats for the early - season games, And even if the camera can't see the human ability, it's in a much belter position than I would be at the ball park. However, this is not to discourage the faithful from attendance. If the seekers of the true almos- phere of America's favorite pas lime didn't pay their way in, there wouldn't be any baseball for TV to relay. When "Home," morning program for women, opened on NBC- TV six weeks ago it set up a garden plot called a "Growery" and asked each of the 48 states to contribute a bit of dirt. So far 36 have responded and six others have promised to send a contribution. That leaves only Maine, Mississippi, South Dakota, New Mexico, Idaho and Indiana to report. The idea behind getting soil from each state was to demonstrate how all kinds of plants can be handled in a mixture representative of Uncle Sam's entire domain.

USE OF A LOZENGE TO CURB SMOKING APPEAL Smoking appeal was effectively reduced in 77 percent of 349 smokers following the use of a medicated lozenge. The lozenge contains benzocaine, 1 20 grain, and is flavored with saccharin, extract of licorice, powdered ginger, and oils of anise, wintergreen, peppermint, coriander, and cloves. The recommended method of use is to take a lozenge every time there is a desire to smoke. The average number of lozenges taken by the subjects of this investigation was 6 daily, but some took as many as 15. There were no untoward effects. The safety of the lozenges is emphasized and it is pointed out that even if 63 lozenges were taken at one time, this would represent 3 grains of benzocaine, whereas the pharmacological dose is 5 to 10 grains. The anti-smoking action of the lozenge is attributed to: (1) its effect upon taste, and the effect of the small amount of benzocaine in the lozenge is to delay the absorption of the flavoring agents and thereby prolong their effect; (2) it satisfies the smoker's desire to have something in his her mouth.
