HOODOOED NORMANDIE There is not much consolation to be had in connection with the virtual sinking of the S. S. Normandie? ex cept for one thing. The French had gone to a lot of expense to build the giant vessel so that she could be converted to an airplane carrier in wartime. To this end, special funnels were arranged on the side of the deck, to give space for runways; especially large eleva tors were installed at each end of the snip; and the top deck consisted oi x'ne biggest "sporis deck in me world. However. U. S. naval engineers decided that despite all the French preparations, the Normandie's UPP^* decks were not strong enough to hold a flock of planes. The French had sacrificed reinforcements below, for the purpose of beauty in the pas senger salons. As a troop ship the Normandie was considered useful, but not near ly so useful proportionately as a medium-sized vessel, such as the Manhattan. Reason: big ships draw so much water that they could not efficiently carry troops to Dakar or West African ports. Small boats would be necessary to take soldiers and cargo ashore. Also the Normandie was too big to get through the Suez canal. ? ? ? SINKING U. S. TANKERS The navy is being more hush-hush than usual regarding the sinkings of oil tankers off the Atlantic coast. However, here arc a few important facts about the situation which are j r.ot military secrets. First fact is encouraging. The tankers sunk were old, small and slow. All of them were 20 years old over, ar.d the largest, Standard Oil's India Arrow, was 8,327 tons. On the surface, this would indi cate that oil and gasoline losses on the East coast would not be heajy^ Huwevei, tills ia iiuv the C?5c. rwi all of the big, new American tank ers have been taken over by the navy. This was under an arrange ment whereby the maritime com mission had lent the oil companies around $800,000 per vessel to build fast modern tankers making 19 knots. This is so fast that they can avoid submarines and also keep up with the fleet. However, these new tankers, built in co-operation with the navy, are now with the fleet. ? Buv Defense Bonds ? HEAVY LOSSES Two other factors indicate the im portance of the sinkings on the At lantic coast. One is an announce ment made by the British last week that sinkings for the entire Atlantic, including the East Coast of the Unit ed States, has been heavier in Janu ary than ever before. The other is the fact that comprehensive rationing of oil and gasoline for the East coast is now a certainty. In other words, oil and tanker losses have been very heavy. Reason for these losses is easy to understand. It requires no official explanation. As everyone knows, especially the enemy, we had to rush various kinds of shipping to the Pacific to replace the damage done at Pearl Harbor. Also we had a large number of warships busy convoying vessels across the North Atlantic. Hence we have been caught snort handed on the East coast. Note: Most people don't realize it, but the oil shortage along the At lantic could be relieved considera bly by a curtailment of tank car rates on gasoline and fuel oil. Last tall the rail rates were reduced on crude oil but not on gasoline or fuel oil. ? ? ? POLITICAL-GO-ROUND Democratic insiders are predict ing that Gov. Herbert Lehman of New York will be persuaded to run for a fourth term this year. Lehman has told party chiefs he doesn't want another term, but they urge him to be a candidate again on the ground of wartime duty . . Meanwhile former District Attorney Tom Dew ey is busy behind-the-scenes organiz ing his political fences for another try at the governorship. This will be the springboard for a second sbnt at the G.O.P. presidential nomina tion in 1344. Wisconsin's Gov. Julius Heil will run for a third term this year to get himself in position to take on isolationist Sen. Alex Wiley when he comes up for re-election in 1944. Both are Republicans, but privately no love is lost between them. Fiorello LaGuardia's ambition al ways has been to become a U. S. he steps out as mayor j oi New * ork city. Farm Topics CHOLERA REMEDY NOW PERFECTED Disease Costs Hog Raisers Twenty Millions Annually. By W. H. BOYNTON ( Proleisor oi Vttrrtamty Scirmcr. U Biversttr ?! Cahlaimia.) Hog cholera is admittedly one of the most destructive of all animal diseases. The yearly cost of this disease has been estimated at be tween $20,000,000 and $30,000,000 in the ITnit?*? =Icr.s. With?. the past few years the author has de veloped at the University of Cali fornia college of agriculture a new tissue vaccine which is expected to cut this annual cholera "tax" very substantially. This vaccine is known as BTV and is now available from commercial companies. It has been used on more than 100,000 hogs on the Pacif ic coast and in the Middle West. BTV is composed of finely ground glandular tissues from hogs infcct ed with cholera. These tissues are taken from the hogs at the height of the disease and then treated with puraiyptol. The result is a vaccine which cannot produce cholera in a hog but does produce an active im munity to the disease. When BTV is used, vaccinated pigs can mingle with unvaccinated pigs without transmitting cholera to them. Furthermore, pigs harbor ing latent infections, such as pneu monia or enteritis, at the time of vaccination arc not subject to the danger of flare-ups of these infec tions due to the lowering of body resistance. This danger of lowered resistance followed by death from some secondary infection has been one of the major drawbacks of the semm-vim? of vnrrination for cholera. The vaccine is not intended for pigs that already have cholera. It should be given only to swine that Ho not have the dissssc. Sine* 2 period of at least three weeks is re quired to build up a satisfactory im munity in the animals, pigs which have been exposed to cholera or are suspected of having it should be treated first with anti-cholera serum to make sure that the infection is checked. Later they can be given the tissue vaccine. At present this vaccine is not rec ommended for garbage-fed pigs, al though successful experimental re sults have been obtained by admin istering the vaccine before and after weaning. AGRICULTURE IN INDUSTRY By Florence C. W??d (This is one oi a series of articles showing how farm products are Ending an important market in industry.) Research on Hemp As soon as science can produce a hemp plant free ?from a narcotic drug, this crop will offer a good market for farmers. Unfortunately the plant, in its present form, pro duces the narcotic, marihuana. The misuse of this drug has caused the passage of the federal marihuana act which forbids the growing of hemp .except under federal super i vision. ! Because of the lesll ictlofiA, less than 1,000 tons annually are grown ] in this country although in former years the growing of hemp fiber was a flourishing industry, in 1859, Kentucky alone produced 75,000 ! tons. The word "hemp" is sometimes ' applied to about three different fiber plants including manila hemp and sisal hemp. The common variety grows well in the United States, at taining a l*ight of 3 to 20 feet and sometimes yielding 800 to 1,000 pounds of fiber per acre. The plant is cut by machine and allowed to dew-ret on the ground. Then it is i collected in stacks and sold to the hemp mill. The mill dries the stalk ! and removes the fiber in a "hemp I brake." Cordage, which can be made from | hemp fiber, is one of the urgent needs of the defense program. Hemp | can also be used in making ciga I rette paper and this commercial out let has already been opened. From the seed a useful oil can be ex I tracted and when mixed with other seeds the hemp can be utilized as bird food. Research is already under way to find a variety of hemp that will con tain only a small amount of mari huana. This work appears promis ing since some plants have been found to produce only small quanti ties of the resin. * IMPROVED j UNIFORM INTERNATIONAL SUNDAY I chool Lesson By HAROLD L. LUNCQUIST, O. D.
