What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

A lecture was given by Mrs. Colonel Combs on Shortage in Burlap Alleviated by Com­ pressing of Wool DENVER, Colo., May 23—Com­ pressing of wool, a new practice in the industry, will be initiated at Merrion & Wilkins warehouse in Denver, Colo., it was announc­ ed Saturday by Russell Wilkins, partner in the Merrion & Wilkins company. This project is a cooperative endeavor between the Denver wool firm and the Government, and will be directed by J. M. Coon, senior agricultural econo­ mist of the Farm Credit Adminis­ tration, Department of Agricul­ ture, Mr. Wilkins said. The purpose is to alleviate the shortage in burlap supplies, large quantities of which have hereto­ fore gone into wool bags for the packaging of the clip and to re­ duce the facilities needed in trans­ porting the wool from the produc­ ing areas to the centers of manu­ facture. Where baling has been done in the past on a small scale, balers on the pattern of those used in Australia have been employed, producing a package in which the density of the wool is about 19 pounds per cubic foot. In the new process which is now being inaugurated, the wool in the bales will be compressed to a density of about 25 to 30 pounds per cubic foot, or approximately twice the 'density of the wool in a well packed bag. This will about dou­ ble the capacity of railway cars used in shipping the wool and a corresponding reduction in the rate of transportation should re­ sult. Merrion & Wilkins have been investigating the advisability of compressing wool in connection with their auction acitvities for a number of years, and had pre­ viously planned to employ this method of packaging. Now with the war in progress and the seri­ ous shortage in burlap supplies available for commercial purposes the need for compressing is much more pronounced, Mr. Wilkins stated. Mr. Coon has already conduct­ ed a number of experiments usiijig cotton compressors with very sat­ isfactory results. The project Will now be undertaken on a commer­ cial scale. Mr. Coon expects to arrive in Denver about June 1, to direct the compressing operation and will enlist the cooperation of agricultural colleges in the West in order to work out the most practical operation this season so that a lange portion of the West­ ern wool clip can be handled in bales rather than bags next year.
