"Tho fact that the present supply of matches on hand In the United States is low cannot be denied," said E. R. Stettlnlus, president of the Diamond Match company. Mr. Stettlnlus added that he had no fear of a famine as re gards matches In this country. "I want to emphasize the statement that there Is absolutely no need for alarm. In an emergency such as this is just the time tor us to keep ourlarJ n0ors bends, with the amount of chemicals tow on hand we can make enough matches to last Just about five months. That Is to say, our firm can keep Its regular customers supplied just that long. I cannot speak for the other firms that help supply the trade, but I understand their condition Is just about the same as ours. "To have even so large a supply as that on hand means a great deal when you consider that about 030,000,000 matches are used every day In the United States. On this basis, each In dividual would uso seven matches a ay. "The Ingredients that go to make our match heads come very hugely from the European countries affected by the present war. The safety matches mnde abroad come exclusively from Austria and Belgium. It Is possible to make matches In Norway and Sweden, but their product Is bound to be diverted entirely by the countries at war. "We have long been at work to dis cover a new method of making match es, and not long ago our chemists act ually succeeded In devising nn alter nate scheme which would not require any Imported chemicals. We believe that it will work, and, of course, we stand ready to put U to the test. All the details are not jet completed, but our experts are now hrt! at work at their task. I have Implicit faith that they will make good." regard to that drama. A new musical comedy entitled "Ii- dy Luxury" Is to be produced by V. C. Whitney for tho first time In Toron to on September 14.
