War Demands Pushed
Paper Consumption in
'43 to Near Record
By the AssocUted Press.
Increasingly heavy war demands
ran the consumption of paper and
paperboard higher last year than at
any time except the peak year of
1941 despite Government conserva
tion and limitation orders, the Of
fice of War Information said yes
terday in a report on the paper
situation.
Almost simultaneously the War
Production Board announced more
drastic controls on the use of pa
perboard containers for shipping
civilian goods, Including restrictions
for the first time on the packaging
of more than 30 food items, effec
tive April 1.
WPB said the restrictions are ne
cessitated by increased military
shipment needs which exceed the
supply of containers despite the
fact that container board is being
produced to the limit of its allotted
available woodpulp supply.
34 Food Items Affected.
Thirty-four food items, from ba
con to vermicelli, appear on the
restricted list, with quotas ranging
all the way down to 40 per cent in
the use of cartons. Animal and pet
food, formerly allowed 80 per cent
of base period shipping carton sup
ply, are cut to a new quota of 50
per cent.
Nonfood items newly restricted
under carton quotas of not less than
70 per cent include curtains, cush
ions, slipcovers, household screens,
office supplies, mirrors, drinking
straws, soap and tobacco products.
Statistical breakdowns of supplies,
consumption and inventory of pulp
wood, paper and paperboard for this
country are contained in the OWI
report which is based on informa
tion obtained from the War Produc
tion Board, the Commerce Depart
ment, the War Department, the
Government Printing Office and the
Budget Bureau.
War Take* 38%.
WPB states that 38.6 per cent of
the country’s total paper and paper
board production is purchased and
uesed directly for war purposes
while another 33.5 per cent is used
largely to maintain a war economy,
such as communications, transporta
tion. health and welfare, agricul
tural products and drugs, construc
tion and public utilities. The re
maining 27.9 per cent is shared by
civilian users.
Wartime consumption of pulp
wood, primary raw materials for the
manufacture of paper and paper
board. has been at a higher rate
than imports and domestic produc
tion, the report said, with the result
that inventory is down to about
three-fourths of normal.
Both imports and domestic pro
duction of newsprint are expected
to decline this year, OWI said.
Newsprint Drop Expected.
Newsprint consumption, already 8
per cent under the 1941 figure, is
expected to drop in 1944 to 19 per
cent below that of 1941.
Net saving of newsprint during
1943 was 7.7 per cent of the normal
consumption, WPB said, but con
sumption nevertheless exceeded the
supply by 134,910 tons, with the ex
cess being taken out of inventory.
Newsprint supply for the first
quarter of this year is estimated at
819,000 tons. Consumption and in
ventory adjustments are estimated
at 808,121 tons, leaving 10.879 tons
for appeals and other contingencies.
Government agencies, excluding
the Army and Navy, consume ap
proximately 1.2 per cent of the total
supply of paper and paper board,
GPO figures showed.

Eye Transfer Unfeasible,
Doctor Says of Girl's Offer
The transfer of an entire eye from
one person to another Is unknown
to surgical science, according to Dr.
Dexter Davis of the Episcopal Eye,
Ear and Throat Hospital, who was
consulted about a report that a Cal
ifornia woman had offered an eye
to an American soldier who was
blinded in an air fight over Europe.
Dr. Davis pointed out. however,
that the transplanting of a cornea
from the eye of one person to that
of another was a feasible operation.
He defined the cornea in popular
language as the clear, glass-like
part of the eye which is a portion of
.its front surface. Serious damage to
i the cornea wUI result In blindness.
According to Associated Press dis
patches, it appeared that Tech.
Sergt. Forrest Vosler, who has been
recommended for a Congressional
Medal as a result of his heroism in
trying to save the crew of his Flying
Fortress, might lose the sight of
both eyes. Miss Pauline Venard, 25,
a University of California co-ed. of
fered to give him one of her eyes.
However, Army doctors said Sergt.
Vosler was losing the sight of his
best eye by a cataract and that a
cornea graft was not indicated in
such cases.
