Linoleum Provides New Cotton Outlet New York City?Virtual disap pearance of burlap from the market has resulted in a new use for cot ton. A large linoleum manufacturer here has resorted to cotton backing instead of burlap. The change to cotton has been pre dicted for some time, with scientists having done research on cotton back ing for linoleum for the past several years. The cotton fabric in the backing is a specially treated haevy duty sheet ing which is said to wear equally as well as the burlap formerly used. New Cotton Fabric Glows In Darkness Cleveland, Ohio?Unusual but use ful is a new cotton fabric being in troduced on the retail markets here. It's a cotton backed oilcloth which stores up light under normal condi tions and releases it during black outs. The new cotton material, expected to be in demand during National Cot ton Week, May 15-23, is impregnat ed with luminescent pigments which store up light from any source for release when normal illumination fails or must be turned off. Made in rolls that can be cut to any size, the luminous cotton can be used to edge steps and hand rails in homes and office buildings, to make arm and hat bands, and guide lines for exits.

(Central Pre$$) Rehabilitate Eyes For Military Service That eyes can be rehabilitated to meet requirements of the military forces is shown in a survey disclos ing that 437 men, rejected because of visual shortcomings, undertook corrective measures and upon re-ex amination were accepted for serv ice, reports the Better Vision Insti tute. Of those whose eyes were re hibilitated, 262 were admitted to the Air Corps, 82 to the Army and 93 to the Navy. Eyesight was im proved by visual training alone, by lenses alone, and by both lenses and training. The cases were reported by 253 eyesight specialists in 41 states. "The remarkable success in tun ing up the eyesight of these men so that they could go back and meet the stiff visual requirements of the air and other forces should be an object lesson to millions of men and women in the United States with functional and refractive shortcom ings in vision," . comments the In stitute. "Surveys of factory, office and other workers have disclosed wanton disregard of the need to take adequate measures for the con servation of eyesight. Millions of persons, studies indicate, pay little or no attention to their visual inef ficiency and take no steps to rehabil itate their eyes so that they can bet ter adjust themselves to the exact ing requirements of modern life. "In the nation's all-out effort for! victory, visual efficiency is as im portant on the production line as it is on the field of battle. Half-seeing soldiers cannot win a fighting war, nor can half-seeing industrial war workers win a struggle for produc tion and more production. America needa to eonseive and mubili/e to the fullest extent its visual resources. America needs vision for victory". Cotton is of such great importance in meeting military and civilian de mands that the United States is now consuming more than 45,000 bales each day.
