INTEREST IN Y.M.C.A.
CLUB WORK SHOWN
Preliminary meetings for the or
ganlzation of club work 'Under the
supervision of the county Y. M.
C A. have been held at Kekaha.
Waimea, Lawal, and Lihue and an
enthusiastic response has been giv
en after the comprehensive nature
of the county program has been pre
sented by Secretary Neil Locke, and
the possibilities of Its varied actlvl
ties for the all around development
of those who participate explained.
Workers with boys and young
men have found that more than
athletics and social gatherings are
necessary If Interest Is held and liv
es gripped. In connection with the
physical and social phases of the
program the county clubs promote
discussions in which the application
of Christian principles as found in
the lives of the world's leaders are
examined. Interesting activities of a
mental and moral nature are intro
duced, the aim being to stress the
equal Importance of moral, social,
mental and physical sides of the
boy and young man's life.
Clubs will be organized in other
communities of the county as rapid
ly as qualified leadership can be

may be handled practically.
Weight is Low.
"Celotex weighs approximately
a sixteenth of one pound per square
t'oot, said B. Q. Dahlberg, president
of the new company. This makes
it not only lighter th:in lumber but
practically an artificial cork board.
"Our patented board la homogen
ous, inasmuch us It is not built up
of layers, but is of uniform struct
ure throughout. In this respect Celo
tex is, unique in that all other build
ing boards are built up of layers of
paper cemented or glued together,
while our product is one homogen
ous board. It Is filled with minute
air cells formed by the interlacing
of , the fibres, in addition to the
presence of the cells of the fibre and
the pith of the cane. It is this that
makes our board so light in weight
and so valuable in insulation qual
ities. It can be handled just like
ordinary lumber and sawed to any
"Our Celotex Is waterproof, broke
In . J. K. Shaw, vice president of
the new concern. In the process of
manufacture the bagasse is bo mix
ed with chemicals so as to make the
individual fibres as well as the
tire board, permanently waterproof.
Therefore our product can be used
as an outside board as well as an
inside board. It will stand all kinds
of weather and a box built of it
will hold water indefinitely.
Will Stand Age:
"According to the officers of the
new New Orleans concern, the feat
ure of Celotex is its security against
decay. The bagasse fibre itself ac
tually resists decay and in the cook
ing of the stock from which the
board is finally rolled, the tempera
ture is brought so high that all
gernu are destroyed and the steril
ized fibre resembles the old parch
ments of the Egyptians, that have
been handed to us through the cen
turies In perfect condition.
"The use of this material On a
house will practically convert it In
to a thermos bottle in summer it
will be cool and In winter it will
be warm. The use of Celotex for
housebuilding It but one of Its many
uses. Its Insulating-, qualities are re
markable, say Its producers, and no
other material is so well suited for
the construction of incubators, bee
hives, phonograph rooms and oth
er places calling for absolute sound
proof and thermatlc qualities."
A few, years ago it was the cig
arette that was the great evil of
the age. Now It Is salt. Too much
salt causes an inflammatory condi
tion in many diseases.
"Jazz Lane," is the name of Cin
cinatti's newest street. It Is to be
presumed that the hospital for the
hopelessly insane will be removed to
that locality at an early date.
SOUTHERN PLANlT CONVERTS
BAGASSE INTO BOARDING
Conversion of bagasse into board
ing suitable for building and oth
er purposes for which wood is now
used is being accomplished by the
Louisiana Celotex Co., of Marrerro,
La., according to an article on the
subject which appears in the New
Orleans Item .
From the account it would Beem
that a satisfactory manner of using
the waste from sugar cane has at
last been discovered. While the ac
count does not go into technical de
tails, some idea of the process is
given. Boards up to 12 feef broad
end 900 feet long can be manufactur
ed in the Marrerro plant, it is said
Plant 1000 Feet Long.
Thj plant is 1000 feet long and
125 feet broad, there being included
under one roof a power plant, engine
room, boiler house, and 800 foot
dryer, storage tanks and a main
The Item's account of the new
process Is in part as follows:
"Once the baile.d bagasse is unload
ed from the freight cars that car
ry it to' the plant from the cane
fields and started on Its journey
through the plant to be convened
into boards, it is not touched by
human hands until it rolls out i
fine finished product ready to be
cut into standard lengths, bundle 1
"The sugar cans stalks, or b?g
asse, are first carried to the breake,
then into snaking t.mks, through the
steam cookers, into washers, beat
ers and to the cutting up saws by
automatic machinery. The bagasse
is chemically treated, mixed with a
patented solution, and then fed into
the great steel rollers.
"Here it starts its 800 foot jour
ney into the dryers. This process
when the mill gets thoroughly un
der way, will run continuously day
and night throughout the year.
"The manufactured article is
known as insulating board and hjs
been given the trade name of Celo
tex adopted as a designation of the
product as the name suggests the
cellular character of the material.
It comes from the rollers in standard
thicknesses of one-half and one-
