SEVEN Wooden Ships May Again Be Numerous i 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 24,558 tons. "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 meet competition.. "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 59,500,000 feet. "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. "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 Marine Review. 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.

CASE, J.

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. Weekly News Letter.
