intensified campaign to salvage
vital scrap materials will le form
ally opened July 13, because the
only way the U. S. can meet
materials requirements of war pro
duction is "to collect every last
bit of scrap from every farm and
home, and from every commercial
enterprise and industry in the
country, The iron and steel in
dustry has raised about $1,500,000
and the glycerin industry about
$500,000 to finance national adver
tising to stimulate scrap collec
tion, the board said. The Farm Im
plement Industry has offered to
assist the country's 12,000 state
and local salvage committees in the
collection of rural scrap. Mate
rials to be sought in particular are
iron and steel, rubber and waste
The rubber, scrap salvage cam
paign will close at midnight July
