But 60 at noon is rated comparatively safe and will great— ly reduce inflammability, although fires can be started. A reading of 50 at any time of day indicates a dry spell is near, one of 40 means extreme caution should be exercised, and 30 calls for a com- plete shutdown of logging opera- tions. Contrary to general belief, the hold-over effects of brief rains do not. lastlong, especially if fol- lowed by an hour or two of low humidity. The other element con- sidered in relation to weatherand forest fires is wind. The rate of spread of fire varies roughly with the square of wind velocity. That’ is, a moderate spread with a five- miIe wind will be four times as great with a ten-mile wind. When all is said and done, how- ever, relative humidity remains the big factor in the start and spread of forest fires.

' . I Youngsters of a “cu ” fife and drum corps led the parade. There were 123 selectee‘sain the group, on the way' to-‘thé‘ r‘ail- mad station from the, Armory. Alongside. several of {them marched women, hand in‘hand, sharingrthe discomfort or the rain‘ in order to ,gain a" few precious finoments ‘ of' compan- ionship. They were-rather proud, these boys. You could tell it from the way- they stepped along and from the way they held their heads high. Each carried a suitcase with ' his name chplked on it, and a' cardboard box in which each had his rst Army supper. o THUS did they march of! to become part of our new Army. They must have been conscious‘of their mission in life ' as they took last glancesat the buildings of their home town. There was no joshing, not even a whisper in .-the ranks. They had come from all parts of‘the city, from .every walk of liter Each had' a stake in this democraby. They were prepar— ing themselves for an important part in its defense. The scene has been repeated many times in many cities. All. through fhe‘summer, quiet pa- rades of a similar nature will be held, and quiet farewells will be said. It’s a timehingscene—pne that reaches the heart of every onlooker. Without fanfare, without fuss, our boys are starting forward on fateful adventures‘in a fateful year. We who sit in our'oflicesi plow our farms; and man our lathesshould doubly resolve to do all we can to back them up.

E} Goodrich Company established the industry’s first research Labora- tory in 1895, has been one of con—i tinuing improvement in!the qual- ity of rubber products and thel trend is now being accelerated,” Improvement in the quality of tires, increasing their life andi mileage per pound of rubber, is as truly conservation of our sup-l plies, Mr. Fox pointed out, as the; amassing of rubber stockpiles or the creation of synthetic rubber, for manufacture in the United States. I Enumerating the discovery of.l organic accelerators, the evolu— tion of the cord tire and the tough carbon black tread, Mr. Fox re- viewed developments during two decades of experience in the usel of age resisters for rubber, first’ discovered in the B. F. Goodrich laboratories, which culminated in “Duramin.” “Duramin,” he explained, “is al combination of chemicals which impart to rubber, as vitamins do and vitality. By carefully sel-I ecting and blending the most ef- fective of these age resistors the‘ company‘s scientists evolved Dur- amin which imparts .to rubber, re- sistance to aging and deteriora- tion far superior to that obtained with the use of any, one age re- sister.” v Because Duramin counteracts the effect of oxidation on rubber it prolongs tire life and results in long mileage, Mr. Fox said. In terms of national defense the result is to make rubber last longer thus conserving America’s supply of this vital material.

From thousands of households will come kitchen utensils, refrigerator trays, parts of old vacuum cleaners. ‘From business establishmentswill come used aluminum of every descrip- tion. All this aluminum and all proceeds of sale will be used for defense. No individual or concern . Will profit from this nation-wide endeavor. i In proclaiming Washington’sl aluminum round—up week, I ex- press our country’s call for aid. It is urged that every family make some contribution to this drive,, that every resident donate some‘ piece of aluminum. Contact your local collection Committee or take your used aluminum to your near- (test fire station or collection lcen-i er. An all-out response to this campaign will show the world: that every American is ready to back the government of the Uni- ted States in defense of demo- cracy. ARTHUR B. LANGLIE, Governor of the State of Washington. Handling of the drive is under the direction of the Washington State Defense Council, with W. Walter Williams as chairman.

In 1917 it wasrnecessary to import 160 car-lots of eggs to meet the state’s demand. In 1938, besides supplying the needs of local consumption, 1,085 car—lots, or 19,530,000 dozen eggs were shipped to markets of other states. Poultry raising is carried on profitably in practically every pounty of the state and is es- pecially important in Whatcom, Skagit, Snohomish, King, Pierce, Lewis and Yakima counties. The Yakima valley alone produced nearly 100,000 turkeys in 1939. lTest Your 1. Q. l. Sofia, Sollum, and Smo- lensk have all been in the news in recent months. In what country is each located? 2.
