Ties Now Live Longer
Back in 1915, railroad ties had tn |
be replaced after five years of ;
grinding and pounding under the
wheels of heavy trains. The 1947
model crossties, however, hardened j
and preserved with creosote by im
proved methods, are good for 30
years. Stretching the life of a tie
sixfold saves considerable as it
costs more than a dollar, not count
tag labor, to renew each tie. There I
•re are nearly 1,300,000,000 ties
constantly wearing out on all the
railroad lines in the United States.
Importance of Wheat'
Recent studies of the department
of agriculture show that wheat is
second only to com in economic im
portance among the cereal crops of
this country and is grown in nearly
all of the 48 states. It is the farm
ers’ chief cash crop over very large
areas and its culture is mechanized
to a larger extent than that of any i
other major crop.

Cellulose In Industry
Cellulose is recognized as an item
of universal importance. It is a raw
material indispensable in many in
dustries, notably in that of paper
making and for strategic items.
Production of the finished product
has expanded so rapidly that a
shortage of the raw material may
be foreseen. Consumption of cellu
lose has increased progressively on
account of its rise in other indus
v tries such as vegetable silk, cellu
loid, varnishes, films for moving
pictures and many other.
Shoes of Tomorrow
Air conditioned shoes are now
available for industrial footwear for
workers who have athlete’s feet or
blisters. The insole is made of fine
plastic meshlike material. Every
step pumps air into the shoes. An
Austrian shoemaker has announced
electrically warmed shoes. A small
battery fits into a cavity in the heel
and keeps the shoe constantly
warm. Eighty-five per cent of all
the 20 million cattle hides consumed
annually In the United States are
used in the manufacture of shoes.
