Union Bus Terminal Lubbock Cotton Research Project Mapped Development of a fabric and system for manufacture through substitution of r.hemical means for the customary intermediate processes will be the initial objective of the cotton research project for which funds were allocated to Texas Technological college Monday, C. M. Stanley, jr., who will direct the project, said Monday. Chemical means would be substituted for the roving, spinning, ways of preparation and weaving processes. • Cheaper Process Seen "We believe that we can make a fabric much cheaper than tho/.e made by the orthodox means, witl the ultimate result of lower prices so that people will use more cotton fabrics," said Stanley, who is head professor of textile engineering at the college. In the project, attempt will be made to "spot weld," a term coin ed by Stanley, the fibers togethe to form a fabric, rather than tc twist them into yarns and weave the yarns into a fabric. Such process, if successfully developed would eliminate considerable ex pense in manufacturing. Severa methods of approach to the problem are being considered. The Texas Cotton Research and Use committee, established by a bill passed in the last session of the Legislature, allocated $30,200 to Tech for the project at a. meeting in Austin Monday. President Clifford B. Jones of-Texas Tech, President Homer P: Rainey of the University of Texas and President T. O. Walton of Texas Agricultural and Mechanical college are members of the committee. Texas A. and M. and the university also received allocations for projects. To Employ Researchers Name of the Tech project will be '•Improvement in Cotton Manufacturing Techniques." Initial objective will be to attempt to develop the new fabric and method of manufacture, but the project will not necessarily be confined to that problem. One research engineer and one skilled mechanic will be employed in the near future. Orders were being prepared Tuesday for equipment needed. I-imediate changes and additions which the project will involve include coupling of two pickers to make a single-process machine; purchase of one control draft drawing frame; conversion of a roving frame to long draft; purchase of a combination cone, tube and spring weaving machine for yarn; one cone type creel for the warper; conversion of one spinning frame to long draft; purchase of one high-speed X-model loom and installation of a new compressed air-powered humidifying system Vu 6 textile building. Additions will be made to testing equipment and supplies and a considerable amount of work will be done in construction of machines and machinery attachments, said Stanley. The allocation provides for financing of the project until the fall of 1943. FORMER U. S. PRESIDENT HORIZONTAL 1,7 Pictured U.

Don was promoted from Junior High school to Senior High school at the end of the 1938-39 session, but did not attend classes in Senior High. National Guard Members Both boys were members of a Lubbock company of the national guard, and were inducted into regular Army service with that unit in the late summer of 1940. They received their training in Camp Bowie, Brownwood, and sailed for the Far East about two weeks before the attack on Pearl Harbor last Dec. 7. Survivors > of the slain soldier, additional to the mother, are his father, Harvard Barnes of Ama- rillc, and his sister, Lahoma Barnes of Lubbock, route 2. "V" IS LIGHTED LOS ANGELES, Feb. 11.

Feb. 11 (/Pi The state through the attorney general's department today iil°d proceedings in 94th district court asking removal from office of Sheriff John B. Harney of Nueces county. The petition alleged Harney has been and is now guilty of official misconduct, willful in c ha r acter, and incompetency in office and of gross carelessness in discharge of duties involving brutal treatment of prisoners. •This man may have been in the wrong pew, but at least he had the.right idea. A young fellow turned up yes- : terday in the recruiting office for Lubbock's new Army Air Base at 702 Main street. That was all right. He wanted to pitch in and do his bit in the national defense effort. That was all right. The trouble was that he didn't want to stay here near home. Instead, he wanted to go straight to Pearl Harbor! Couldn't Help Him A welder, the young South Plains patriot wanted to sign up among the civilian workers who are going to Hawaii to rebuild Army bases destroyed- there in the Japanese attack of December 7. Air Base recruiting officers admired his spunk, .but they couldn't help him much. Meantime, however, enlistments were still being accepted at the office for service at the Air Corps Advanced Flying school being completed 10 miles west of town. But Col. Thomas L. Gilbert, commanding officer oE the field, has asked that all prospective candidates for enlistment report at once to the Main street office. The units assigned to. the field are being filled in as rapidly as possible, with troops from reception centers as well as with men recruited here. Candidates for enlistment must be between 18 and 35 years old, must be physically and mentally fit, must have no one dependent upon them for financial support, and must present statements from their local selective service boards that they are not engaged in key nna SKIN BREAKING OUT 9 • 7 —due to external Irritation?
