America's surplus of wheat from
this year's harvest had all been sent
by December. An urgent appeal has
again come for 70,000,000 to 90,000,000
more bushels. This must be saved
from our normal consumption. It has
been estimated that already have
saved of this amount about 25,000,000
bushels. If wo can save one-third of
our usual consumption, we can answer
their plea for help.

Bagasse Paper Has Prospects
Olaa's proposed bagasse paper plant
will be be superior to anything which
was expected here up to the time that
the order for it was placed and Is
more extensive than was suggested by
R. Renton Hind when he returned
from the mainland nearly two years
ago after a thorough investigation of
processes and possibilities.
liegasso for paper making lends It
self better to the higher and finer
grades of paper than it does to the
coarse product which Is to be turned
out by Olaa for mulching purposes,
Mr. Hind says. Olaa wants paper for
Its. mulching process and the bagasse
paper which it turns out will answer
the purpose nicely and its manu
facture will Insure a material saving
over th cost of purchasing other paper
for that purpose.
This in no way lessens the possibil
ities for a great use of fine bagasse
papers in time to come, Mr. Hind
says. He is confident that the time
will come when Its use will be general
He now has in his office the samples
of bagasse paper which were shown
at the Maui County Fair last year
and the texture of some of these sam
pies is surprising. There Is paper that
13 suitable for letter writing, other for
wrapping and more than a dozen dif
ferent grades are shown.
It is the understanding that the
Olaa plants capable of turning out
finer grades than mulching purposes
require and, if occasion warrants, can
enter into the manufacture of other
papers. It I salso understood that the
new plant will be such as to permit of
a ready expansion.
