Chiving gum is made of a gun base, sugar, corn sirup, and Jlav oring. The gum is what keeps i chewy for hours. Bubble gum it, made with a more rubbery gum base so that it will stretch with out tearing. Each manufacturer has his own recipe which is very secret, bu the method of manufacturing the gum is more or less the same for all. Al the factory, the gum base is prepared. The materials arc melted and sterilized in a steam cooker and pumped through a can trifuge. This machine spins at high speed and throws out dirt and bits of bark found in the raw gums. The clean, melted gum base mixed with sugar, corn sirup, anc flavoring. The usual mixture is 20 per cent gum base, 63 per cent sugar, 16 per cent corn sirup, anc about 1 per cent flavoring oils. Some of the more popular flavors are spearmint, peppermint, clove ; and cinnamon. While this mass is still warm, it is run between pairs of rollers. These thin it down into a long ribbon. Powdered sugar on both sides prevents the gum from slicking. The last pair of rollers it fit ted with knives which cut the ribbon into sticks. Machines wrap the sticks separately and then into packages. Most of the gum base that is now used is manufactured, that is, it's a product of industry. But some of it, like chicle, comes from trees. Chicle comes from the wild sapodilla tree of Guatemala and Mexico. The milky white sap of tin's tree is collected in buckets. Then it is boiled down and molded into 25-pound blocks to be shipped to chewing gum factories. People in Central America chew chicle right from the tree. In thi same way, early New Englani settlers chewed spruce gum, afte seeing the Indians do it. This wa the first gum sold in the U. S. in the early 1800's. Chicle was firs imported in the 1860's as a substi lute for rubber. Then, about 1890 it began lo be used in making chewing gum, and from then or our modern chewing gum industry became established. f.'
