Wooden Ships May
Again Be Numerous
Demand For Ships And Scarcity Of
Steel The Cause Pacific Coast
Yards Will Take Lead . I
Mr. J. Fred Larson of the Heath
Shipbuilding Company recently em
bodied his views on the shortage of
ships, the future outlook of shipbuild
ing and the prospects for the Pacific
Coast in the following analysis:
"The world's merchant marine be
fore the war consisted of 50,000,000
tons; every ship was in profitable use
and the world's tonnage had been in
creasing at the rate of 2,000,000 tons
a year to take care of the increased
demand of commerce.
"Since August 1914, the commence
ment of the war, more more than 6,
000,000 tons have been destroyed,
4,400,000 tons interned ami 12,000,000
tons comandeered, leaving only 28,
400,000 tons, of 67 percent, in use, and
vessels are being driven so hard that
authorities in the shipping world say
that most of them will be scrap tn
two years. They also show that we
most have 60,000,000 tons in the water
by 1919 to move the world's commerce.
Nearly 35,000,000 tons must be built
new. Where Is it coming from?
"The present capacity of the world
is less than 3,000,000 tons a year, in
1284 shipyards, and two-thirds of these
yards have contracts running now
from 1919 to 1923. The others have all
they can do for 1917 and 1918. The
increased capacity of a number of
these yards are limited by
supply of engines and steel plate. The
demand for engines is rapidly increas
ing and contracts are now being made
for delivery from eight to twelve
months hence. Steel mills of this
country are more than 11,000,000 tons
behind in orders for steel, which has
raised in price from one and a quarter
to six cents a pound.
"Somebody has got to get busy to
replace the ships that are being de
stroyed nearly one thousand In the
past nine months, with a terrible in
crease each month as follows: April,
90 vessels; May, 63; June,64; July,
147; August, 102; September, 114; Oc
tober, 139; November,147, and Dec
ember,. "In November and December Eng
land lost 112 ships of 306,609 tons, Nor
way 77 ships of 94,751 tons, Denmark
25 ships of 22,692 tons, and Sweden
about the same.
"England has lost lost during the
war 1100 merchant ships of 2,500,000
tons; England's allies 292 ships of
532,448 tons. Total allies' loss, 1392
ships of 3,032,448 tons.
"Germany and the central powers
lost 88 vessels of 211,920 tons.
"Norway, Sweden and Denmark 473
ships of 528,301 tons. Norway alone
lost 308 ships of 368,548 tons.
"The United States lost 10 ships of
"Total ships lost during war, 2156.
"When peace is declared there will
be a scramble for drydocks and ship
yards to put in condition the 4,400,000
tons now interned. There are only
811 drydocks in the entire world, so at
that rate it will take more than a year
to put these interned ships in shape,
and for every month of continuation of
war we lose 350,000 tons ; so we come
back to the same point, more than
30,000,000 tons must be built and the
best we can hope to do from every
calculation Is 4,000,000 tons a year.
The present capacity is 2,400,000 tons
yearly in the entire world. It looks
like from seven to ten years will be
required for merchant vessels alone,
aside from the immense appropriation
made by all nations for increases in
. ..t rru yt t ,1 n,.,.a l -n
jposes to spend $185,560,000 for 66
naval vessels. These must also be
built in American yards.
"There are 417 ships now building
tn the United States and shipbuilders
hope to launch 314 vessels in 1917 of
960,899 tons capacity, and 105 ships in
1918 of 619,047 tons. That is 1,479,946
tons in tho next two years. Foreign
yards are full up for the next five
years, so our chances for future con
tracts are the best
"The opportunity of Oregon and the
Pacific Coast is here now, and we have
before us In Oregon a prosperous per
iod of many years of which we must
improve our facilities and methods so
much that there will be no question of
cur shipyard efficiency and ability to
"Steel ships, as you can see, are
limited by the supply of material and
steel yards have all they can take
care of for some time to come.
"It looks like wooden ships. More
over, Oregon-built wooden ships. First,
the raw material is here; second,
the development and standardization
of the semi-diesel engines (manufac
tured on this coast); third, the mild
climate, living facilities and labor
market, and, fourth, the percentage of
profit per dollar invested in a 3000-ton
wooden vessel with auxiliary engines
has been shown to be greater than
steel bottoms of larger sizes.
"There are 63 wooden vessels now
under construction on the Pacific
Coast. It will require 106,000,000 feet
of lumber to build them, and they will
have a combined carrying capacity of
"We have nearly 200,000,000,000 feet
nf standing Douglas fir and pine in
Oregon, and 35.000,000,000 feet of oth
er species. That will build a lot of
"Ships and shipbuilding have made
40 new millionaires in Christiana. Nor
way (a city the size of Portland) in
the last two years. Norway is pena
ing $150,000,000 for ships now in the
United States. That is three times
more than the United States Govern
ment proposes to Invest for the pur
pose of inaugurating a new era in
American mercnant marine." racmu
HOW TO FIGHT CABBAGE WORM
The common cabbage worm, the
most destructive Insect enemy of cab
bage and related crops in the United
States, begins its depredations as soon
as the young plants are set out tn the
spring. Steps to combat it should be
taken at an equally early date, there
fore, it is pointed out in Farmers' Bul
letin 766 of the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture, The Common
Cabbage Worm, by F. H. Chittenden.
Although the insect caused the total
destruction of cabbage, cauliflower,
and other crops In large areas in the
years immediately after its first ap
pearance in this country in the sixties,
control measures have now been per
fected to such a degree and adopted to
such an extent that losses need not be
great. Spraying with a solution of
two pounds of powdered arsenate of
lead, four pounds of arsenate of lead
in the paste form, or one pound of
Paris green to fifty gallons of water
should be begun as soon as the plants
are set out and should be repeated as
often as examination of the plants
shows it to be necessary.

"SOAKED" PEAS AND BEANS
Reports received by officials in
charge of the enforcement of the
Food and Drugs Act reveal that owing
to the great demand and consequent
high prices for canned peas and
beans, many canners are putting on
the market products made by soaking
dried peas and beans and then can
ning them. The process of soaking
gives the peas and beans much the
same appearance as the fresh article.
Products made In this way may be
wholesome, but, it is pointed out, they
are generally les3 desirable than those
prepared from fresh peas and beans.
Furthermore, if the consumers desires
the dried product it Is much cheaper
to buy the dried peas and beans direct
ly from the grocer and soak them at
home. In this way the Bame article
is Berved at a much less cost.
The Food and Drugs Act does not
prohibit the sale in interstate o rfor
elgn commerce of canned label on the
cans indicates plainly and conspicu
ously that the contents are made from
the soaked, dried product. Consum
ers can learn by carefully reading
labels whether they are getting a
product that was made from the dried
or from the fresh peas and beans.
