The House That Cotton Built
Almost overnight scores of concrete defense homes are rising at
Falls Church, Va. The rapidity of construction of these houses can
bo attributed largely to the ingenious use of cotton and rubber, the
National Cotton Council and Cotton-Textile Institute report. Room
sixed rubberised cotton ballon sections are inflsted and sprayed with
concrete When the concrete hardens the balloon is removed and the
concrete ^hcttfa covered-with- insulating materia I and an outer layer

sections, they can erect 100 houses in 60 days and 200 in 90 days.

APPLICATION OF AAA LIME
SHOWS INCREASE IN STATE
In line with the nation's wartime
need for large increase* of certain
essential crops, and continuance of
soil conservation practices, North
Carolina farmers are increasing use
of crushed limestone as a soil build
ing material, according to E. Y.
Floyd, AAA executive assistant of
For the period from November 1,
1941, through May 6, 1942, Mr. Floyd
said, farmers of the state ordered
23ti,HOO tons of limestone from the
Agricultural Adjustment Agency for
use on pasture lands, hay crops, and
small grain. For the corresponding
period of the previous year, he said,
196,351 otns of limestone were or
dered At the same time, he declared
11,471 tons of 20 per cent superphos
phate have been ordered this year.
He urged farmers who plan to use
idditional limestone on their land
this fall with small grain crops to
place their orders as quickly as pos
lible to insure delivery.
"The current transportation situ
ition is making it more difficult to
obtain supplies of limestone within
t short itme after orders are receiv
ad," he said. "This situation proba
bly will grow worse as troop and
var materials movements place an
additional burden on railroad facili
The AAA ufficial pointed out that,
n placing orders for fall delivery
farmers should give proper consid
eration to the possible shortage of
ither materials which now are going
'or war purposes, and that needs
>hould be considered in relation to
the war production program.
Crushed limestone is obtained
from the AAA through county agri
cultural conservation associations as
grant-of-aid material, and costs of
it are deducted from conservation
payments due farmers at the close
of the program year.
