Millions of Dollars to Be

Price of Paint Kept Down By
Substitute for Lead

ST. LOUIS, April 12. The living

dollars by chemical Invontltona and
discoveries, today said delegates to the
convention oC tho American Chemical
society. In seeslon hore.
Recent discovery by Fred G. Cottrell
chief metallurgist ol the United States
bureau or mines, of a lead, substitute in
the manufacture of insecticides Is ex
pected to save millions of dollars of
products and assist in lowering the
cost, of these products.
Experiments In tanning hides of
srarks. chemists assert, will assist In
cutting the cost of leather goods.
BilhonG in Farm Products Lost.
"About one billion dollars m farm
products have been lost each year be
cause insecticides, made chiefly of lead
compounds, wero beyond the reach of
the poorer farmers," Charles L, Par
sou, of Washington, secretary of the
society, explained.
By Mr. Cottrcll's discovery arse
nic is recovered from smoke 3si ulng
from copper smelters and this ha3
made it possible for chomists to sub
stitute calcium magnesium for lead,
greatly reducing the cost of insectl
clde.3. Substitute For Cremo of Tartar
"Prohibition in destroying the wine
industry, also removed tlio .-uppiy of
cream of tartar extracted from dopoaltsr
in wino casks. However, chemists have
discovered a method by which niallelc
acid is drawn from benzeno and used
as a substitute for cream of tartar.
"Then again, the chemist has kept
down the price of paint. Paint would
bo fifteen to sixteen 'jollars a gallon,
Instead of $3 to ? i, If the chemist had
not made lithopone and tilaneum pos

Roger W. Bahson of Wellesley, Mass.
Mr. Creel ?.lso made public a letter
to Senator Smot, chairman of the com
mittee, declaring tho senator knewl
there was no transfer of tho Official!
Bullotin lo Bahson. but that the Joint!
committee "aneakingly worked in se-j
cret lo frame the indictment that my
testimony would have made absurd.";
Ho added that the senator "as much as
anyone else," was responsible for wip
ng out tho Creel committoo June 30,
1919, "in the middle of Its orderly liq
uidation." The Joint committee charged that
the transfor had been made without

Letter to Palmor.
. In his letter to Mr. Palmer, Mr. Creel
"I insist that your office commenco
an instant investigation and put myself
and every record at your disposal. I
want lo know from you also what pro-;
lection, a citizen has against the delib
erate slanders of a member of con
gress. Not only are Senator Smoot's
charges false but he knew them to be
lies when fie utoered tLom."
"The Official Bullotin was not trans
ferred to Roger Babson or anyone else.
It was discontinued by the order of
the attorney general on the ground
that I had no right to sell the property
at public auction. Tho ono asset was
a mailing list and tills was publicly
placed at the disposal of any citizen.
"Any private citizen was at liberty
to start a publication of similar char
acter and this Is what Mr. Babson did.
He received nothing from the govern
ment except the right to copy the mail
ing list."
To Senator Smoot, Mr. Creel said
thath after ho had been ''dispossessed"
on July 20. 1919, his records had twice
been moved and had been jumbled into
army trucks. He declared a "private
memorandum staling this confustion,
was sent to Senator Warren, but some
one sneaked It but lo the press and
the conditions precipitated by con
gress wero credited to my 'desertion.'
"I am sick and tired of this long
distance lying," he said, "Your rec
ommendation to the attorney general
to bring action against me is bun
combe and you know It.- A bettor and
quicker way Is to have me appear be
fore your committee, or any other sen
ate committee, and make full answer
to tho Official Bulletin charge.
Shames American War Record
"Ever aince the armistice it has been
jour steadfast attempt to shame the
American war record, and besmirch ev
ery man with that record. To date,
theso congressional investigations
have cost ?2,000,000 but failure to de
velop a single instance of graft still
forces your group lo rely upon the ac
tivities of individual liars."

tho cry "We won the war," had been
made to cover many signs, while Rep
resentative DOremus asserted that "if
tho supremo architect of the universe
had built those camps, the bleacher
managers would have found fault with

To the Republican claim that the

national army eantonmen', through

ages, the Democratic member said if
his computation was correct, ho fig
