The New York conference, Mr.‘ Lang said, will be devoted to definite plans for location of USO Clubhouses and specific programs i of recreation, entertainment, spir— itual and social benefits to be con— ducted. Area conferences were recently concluded in the eight USO regions, being aimed at a summary of needs based upon re- . ports from representatives of the six USO sponsoring agencies who previously had made their own surveys in territories surrounding the crowded training camps. Northern California, allotted a quota of $433,789, with many of the smaller cities and districts long since over the top, but with; ‘worm can be grown in practically final reports yet to come from some of the larger financial and industrial centers, to date of $300,739.

In addition, $246,369 is expected to be raised: t h i s f by uncompleted districts, expectancy being based upon rea- . sonable compilations made at re- gional headquarters here. states, the cash amounts sorlbed to date and guaranteed by Community Chests are: California, $822,335; Idaho, $18,- 000; Oregon, $82,500; Nevada, $5,- 500; Washington, $131,489.

The government has appro- priated $15,000,000 to establish 360 service clubs, some of which are already under construction or in operation, in communities adja- cent to army and navy camps. training bases and stations, and defense industry centers. The U SO will raise $10,765,000 in the current campaign to staff and operate the clubs for the first . year. More than $8,500,000 Of the quota has already been re- ported to national headquarters. Elliott, Sexton Attend Furniture 'Market_1:z_lst Week Walter M. Elliott, manager of the Lumbermen‘s .Mercantile C0” and Lyle Sexton, manager of the furniture department, spent Sun- and Monday of last week all [the Northwest Furniture Market I in Seattle viewing the latest and most modern types of furniture. According to Sexton, this year's market was definitely a “buyers' market” with the demand so much greater than supply that met“- chandise had to be bought in many cases with delivery to be made months in the future. Although priCes are on the UT)- ward trend, the main difficulty for consumers will lie with lack of goods, Sexton added.

Since Japan 1 controls the Chinese market from , which we are dependent for co— ‘ coons, this country finds itself in ‘a position where something had better be done about it.

A second opportunity will bene— fit the business man in small communities. The silk hosiery in— dustry is the big user of reeled silk. Reeling machinery will , therefore be necessary. Farmers i will take their silk to town where reeling machinery will be avail- able. Aftcr this is accomplished, the reeled silk can be sent to the mills for fashioning into silk hOSiel‘y. A successful development will‘ mean a new farm product, new industry for small towns, new. machinery manufacture and a re- liable source of supply for the silk industry. 3. On May 11, 1826, the House of Representatives authorized an investigation of the possibili- ties of the silk industry in the United States. The report was rendered in 1828, whereupon 8,000 copies were printed for distribu— tion. The report was an excellent one, still worth reading. It brings out one very important point—and that is, that the mulberry tree which supplies food for the silk every part of the United States. K. M. Hazarabedian of Selma, Calif, has done much to prove the feasibility of the silkworm culture as a farm operation. He .claims that a net of about two dollars per pound is realized by the silk raised. If this is~accurate, and there is every indication that it is a sound estimate, it means that with approximately 70,000,— 000 pounds of silk being imported, there is a $140,000,000 industry awaiting the efforts of the Amer- ican farmer. The fruit of the mulberry tree is a by-product of the silk indus- try, which is not to be overlooked. There has been an old argument which has been a stumbling block in the development of the indus- try . . . the argument that wages in China and Japan were so low,‘ we could not compete. This argu- ment does not have the merit it once had; for new methods, de- velopment in this country, indi- cate the possibility of overcoming this objection. Suppose we must subsidize thisl .infant industry for a few years; That would be better than subo Sldy of surplus crops with no hope . of ever being relieved of the bur- den it entails. is a rte—awakening to the fact that America was made by men and women who had the courage to ‘ tackle long-range endeavors that ‘r took years before attaining suc- cess. The stamina required for such endeavors made a great na- tion. The silk industry is a chal- lenge to American agriculture. It is a big undertaking but promises a big profit. Rural Carriers Sales Agents For Defense Stamps Thirty-two thousand rural mail carriers are now acting as agents in the sale of Defense Savings Stamps, postal officials have in— formed the Treasury Department. Demand for the stamps in sparse- ly settled districts caused the Post Office Department to author- I 4. Installed Complete -— Wiring & Pluth , ize the carriers to act as sales- men. The stamps range in value from ; ten cents to five dollars. Pur- chasers are given albums in which they can be mounted. When fill~ ed, the albums may be exchanged for Defense Savings Bonds. Post Office officials that rural mail carriers acted in in 1917 find 1918 selling War Savings Stamps.

The team—work idea, which in 1933 started combining idle labor and idle materials to construct {Grand Coulee and Bonneville and Boulder Dams, built a bulwark of our Nation’s defenses in power supply, and laid the foundations for a greater industrial Washing- ton. In many parts of the coun— try power supply is a serious fac- tor of national defense; and rigid economies, conservation of “Sun- day power," are necessary to keep the wheels of the new factories turning. With almost limitless poner to be made available by Grand Coulee Dam, the Pacific Northwest is being considered fa— vorably as the site of more de- fense plants by the Office of Pro- duction Management. ' Lumber was lead horse. in the materials team which built Grand Coulee. To divert the Columbia River out of its ancient channel during excavation of overburden on bedrock, and during early con- crete placing operations, the world’s largest coffer dam sys- tem was employed. Here lum- ber was indispensable. In the coffer dams the smallest stick was 12 by 12 inches, and the larg— ‘ est 16 by 24 inches, all structural Douglas fir, 40 to 60 feet in Nearly 18,000 of these sticks were used. The heaviest and largest forms built at the dam site, weighing 13 tons, contained 12,604 board feet each. These transition forms formed the upstream .portals of the penstocks, through which a ’ portion of the Columbia; will plunge toturn the turbines, and the generators over them. They were 29 feet long; the upper ends rectangular, 30 feet~ high and 15 feet wide; the lower ends circular 18 feet in, diameter. the ; Secretary of the Treasury to make ‘ What we Ameri- ,» cans need more than ever before i recalled cial forms were those for the galleries of tunnel-ways inside the concrete mass—eight and a half N miles of them. Three million feet of lumber Went into the timber cribs on the face of the partially completed concrete foundation, 130 feet high, 200 feet long and 100 feet wide. Sixty million feet of form lum- ber did multiple service. Forms for the erection of. the dam struc- lture were five feet deep, fifty I feet square; their average use i was 35 to 40 times; some were used as many as 50 times. For use this fall, the Company lhas contracted for a million feet iof Douglas fir with which to i construct eleven arch-type con- [crete bridges, each 135 feet long, I over the piers of the 1650-ft. spill- ,way section, situated in the mid- ; dle portion of the dam. A high- way resting on these spans and on the two ends of the dam will imake possible an inviting motor trip from abutment to abutment, 1 across the crest of the 550—ft high structure.
