In Dr. Aha. sailer's and Dr. Boat's
chapter on "Some New Derivatives
of Nicotine," they point out that
ia ens season just before the war,
North UaroUna produced 517,210,000
pounds at tobacco which resulted in!
a loss of 108^42 pounds (it is esti
mated at least SO per emit of the to

Nicotine Is Wasted
Estimating that 1 per cent of that I
waste material ia nicotine, the au
thors figure that the nicotine obtain
able from that one crop amounted
to 1,034,422 pounds.
"This does not take into considera
tion the waste represented by the
stalks left in the field after harvest
ing," they pointed out "The chief
uses of nicotine at present are as an
insecticide and in the manufacture
of nicotinic acid and nicotinamide."
In a summary they pointed oat
that tobacco affords' en abundai
supply at waste material in the form
of stems and stalks worthy of chem
ical study and that the amount of
nicotine derivable from waste tobac
co ia enormous. "At the present time
nicotine is the chief chemical com

Fortunate, indeed, is that paster
who doesn't have to worry about Ids
flock attending church. In one small
town I know, each of the churches
has a full-time pastor but attendance
at evening services dropped off So
much that the ministers agreed to
have a union service each Sunday
night. Finally, the evening worship
was dispensed with during the sum
mer months. I'm not a. pessimist;
nor do I thiak the worid is headed

do wish that members would take
more .interest in religious activities.
I firmly believe that if congregations
would, concentrate on strengthening
their churches the community's
'problems would soon disappear.

Jjast Wednesday marked the first
mmiver8ary of the Japanese surren
der and the end of World War II. I
am not advocating that the day be
made a holiday but I do think that
everyone on that day ought to pause
prayerfully,and .resolve to do every
thing humanly possible to prevent
the outbreak of another war. Nervous
and tense, ttto world is sitting on a
powder keg. Straight thinking and
positive action are necessary. Last
Wednesday was an appropriate time
to set our sights on peace as the goal.
