Ford will increase raw steel output Wednesday, July 17, 1974 Ukiah Daily Journal Uklah Calif.—15 By EDWARD S. LECHTZIN UPI Auto Writer DETROIT (UPI) — The Ford Motor Co., beat known as the nation's No. 2 automaker, also is the 11th largest producer of steel in the United States. At a time when the steel supply is in a tight,situation, Ford is in the midst of a $150 million expansion and modernization program that will increase its annual raw steel- making capacity by three- quarters of a million tons. At the giant Rouge manufacturing complex in suburban Dearborn, the distance between piles of raw materials and the final car assembly line is a scant city block. The Ford Steel Division provides half of Ford's steel requirements. In late June, Ford officially inaugurated a new hot strip steel mill—the first built in the United States since 1970 and a replacement for the one that has been operating continuously at the Rouge since 1985. The new mill takes 10-inch thick steel slabs up to 32 feet long and weighing up to 25 tons, heats them to 2,300 degrees and then reduces the thickness to one-tenth of an inch before rolling them into coils that would stretch 2,850 feet if up- wound. The steel division's cold All aspirin is not alike WASHINGTON (UPI) — More than 100 varieties of aspirin are offered for sale in . the United States and the consumer is faced with confusing claims for their effectiveness, safety and cost. The Medical Letter, a nonprofit publication for doctors, evaluated ,drugs containing aspirin and concluded in its July 5 issue that all aspirin is not alike. But it said no important difference in painkilling effect between various formulations of aspirin has ever been established. Aspirin tablets disintegrate in the stomach and dissolve T*1ffiartIylfftftestiTaB intestine. The report said it is the rate the tablet dissolves that determines . the rate the drug gets into the ~ bloodstream. "Improperly manufactured tablets may either be so tightly packed that they do not readily dissolve, or they may crumble before use," the Medical Letter said. "Crumbled tablets and powder.may contain considerable amounts of degraded drug. Although these pharmaceutical differences between tablets could have clinical consequences,^ has never been proven in controlled trials of analgesic effect that one brand of plain aspirin is superior to another." The report said aspirin has been implicated as a possible cause of stomach or intestinal bleeding and a few other disorders.. To minimize such irritation, The Medical Letter said any aspirin table should be taken with a full glass of water. Buffers are added to some aspirin tablets to decrease gastric acidity. But the Medical Letter said in the amounts present in most buffered formulations, buffers do not produce a meaningful decrease in acidity. It said food or a glass of water probably works just as well. Nevertheless, the report said some scientists have found less gastrointestinal bleeding with buffered tablets, presumably because buffers tend to shorten the time it takes for the tablets to dissolve and there are fewer undissolved particles to irritate the stomach and intestines. , > . "It has never been established in patients with painful conditions, however, that there is a difference between buffered and non-buffered aspirin in time of onset of analgesic, duration or degree of relief of pain or incidence of gastrointestinal distress," the report said. The Medical Letter said Alka- Seltzer has a much higher content of buffering agents than other buffered aspirin tablets, and since Alka-Seltzer is dissolved before taken, the report said it is an effective way of taking single doses of aspirin. , But the report said the. buffering capacity of Alka-Seltzer is obtained at the expense of a high sodium content. The sodium and bicarbonate, along with its cost, makes Alka- Seltzer "less useful than other formulations of aspirin for long- term administration as, for example, in patients with arthritis." reducing and temper mills provide the desired finished surface depending on whether the steel is earmarked for inside or outside body parts. From these' coils are • stamped the hoods, doors, frames and many other parts that are combined to create Ford cars, trucks and tractors. George A. Ferris, general manager of the steel division, said Ford's steel expansion program is nearing completion at a time when "the steel supply situation is very tight and major indicators point to a continuation of that condition for some time." ' "In the United States, it is projected that an additional 25 to 30 million tons of raw steel capacity will be required by i960, an increase of nearly 20 per cent," Ferris said in a recent interview. "The steel shortage is not confined to this country," Ferris said. "It is projected that an increase in worldwide raw steel'capacity by as much as one-third will be required over the same time period." . Ford Steel Division's major customer is the automaker,, but when auto production drops and steel demand remains high in other industries, Ford sells its steel on the open market. The auto company entered the steel business in 1919 as part of the late Henry Ford's concept of processing raw materials that go into auto production on the same grounds where finished cars are produced. To accomplish this task, Ford operates extensive raw materi­ al reserves and mining properties in Kentucky, Minnesota and Michigan. The. low-grade taconite ore that is a prime ingredient of steel comet from Minnesota's Mesabi Range. The taconite is processed into pellets and transported, along with limestone and coal, to the Rouge by Ford's fleet of five ore carriers. From 1.5-millton ton storage bins, the materials are weighed and mixed for the blast furnace where highquality liquid steel is made and formed into 25-ton ingots.
