Malonty Barbecm' Is Boon For Charcoal By CARROLL ARtMONI) CHIfAGO (AP) -The backyard barbecutst in hid chef's hat and asbestos mittens may be mining n delicious cut of porterhouse but he's making alot of people happy. There is the charconl suppliers who, thanks to the outdoor Hving craze, now haw a 20 million do!' lar annual industry. More than JpO.OOO tons of char coal are being used annually, the American Foresl Products Industries, Washington, D.C., reports, and the figure soon is expected to reach 500,000. Pioneer open air cooks will recall that 10 or 12 years ago char coal often was hard to con^e by. A chef caught short of fuel on a Sunday, for instance, had to sur render his meat fork to the little woman who carried on via prosaic gas or electricity. Today, however, charcoal is about as universal a staple as matches. It is stocked at gasoline stations, drug stores, groceries, hardware and sporting goods shops. For tree farmers this new mar- OWN YOUR SHARE OF AMERICAN BUSINESS GOOD INVESTMENTS CAN PAVE THE ROAD TO A SECOND INCOME. Serving Alton Investors lor 28 Years NBWHARD, COOK & Co. OfnCI • OHM SATURDAY MORNING! ket has been a boom. They are ujili/ing portions of trees harvest, ed for other purposes such as con- struclion lumber and papermak ing. The industry also makes ust of weed frees, thinnings and saw mill leftovers. Robert Minshall and his father, Dr. L K. Minshall of RockfonJ, 111., are making charcoal from treetcips and dutch elm-infested trees they formerly burned as waste. Donald S. Kimball of Franklin, N.H., is doing the same with weed trees and trees he cut down to thin out his timber stand. E. W. Morris of Cave Junction, Ore., is supplying chefs in his region with charcoal he makes from forest leftovers. Many users of charcoal don't really know what it is. why tt ignites so easily, burns so evenly and so long and produces such Intense heat. Dfscrihed simply, charcoal is baked wood. The best is obtained from dense hardwoods such afi maple, birch, beech, oak and hickory which yield about 30 bushels of charcoal per cord of wood. The wood is cooked in kilns of brick or masonry or in retorts made of steel. In the retort method the wood is baked at high temperatures for 22 to 24 hours. At first the oven is heated by gas or oil fires but after the charcoal wood starts carbonizing, the gas from the wood itself feeds the fire. The charcoal is cooled either in a series of ovens or by the use of live steam. The AFPI reports that the extrusion process is one of the newest developments in the industry. Sawdust, chips or shavings are pushed through a long, heated rube'by a worm gear. The wood is cabonzied as it moves through the tube and the charcoal pellets are cooled by steam as they dro- from the end of the tube. Oldest of the processes, sued for centuries in Europe, is the pit method in which the oven is fashioned from grass, leaves, I branches and a layer of soil. Cari bonization by this method requires from 7 to 21 days or longer and requires extreme care to prevent the charcoal from bursting into | flame when the oven is broken down for removal of the charcoal. f Bachelors beat married men in the annual four-mile perambulator race between Bedford and Ampthill, England. There were 15 starters this year. /Vetw of Stock* IndustrialLosses Pace Decline NKW YORK (AP> - Losses by industrials paced another slow market decline late this afternoon.

CHICAGO (AP)—Soybeans were under intermittent flurries of profit taking today and led the setbacks in a lower grain futures market on the Board of Trade. Offerings were heavy at the opening gong and first prices quoted for soybeans ^vere down major fractions to more than a cent. The selling appeared to have been cued by easier prices for soybean oil and soybean meal but traders said the government report on June crushings also was disappointing. It showed only 33,157,000 bushels crushed during the month, down almost a million from May. Liberal receipts of cash wheat, corn and oats over the weekend created active hedge selling in those pits. Wheat was unchanged to J i cent a bushel lower about noon, September 51.83%; corn %-Mi lower, September $1.16%; oats %-»/ 2 lower, September 68%; rye - %-ltt lower, September $1.16%; soybeans 1-1% cents lower, September $2.14.
