America, which should have
been the birth place of the modern
style, lags far behind Europe in
awakening to the possibilities it
offers. The steel skeleton skyscra

it would seem that America ot

the development of a new Archi

Cascara Trees .
BROWNSVILLE, Dec. 21.
(AP) The possibility of cultivat
ing cascara trees as a new Oregon
Industry Is being determined here
by a local farmer, Thomas Miller,
who has a two acre planting now
four years of age from wild seed
ings he has set out.
With the wild supply of cascara
bark diminishing and the demand
from the drug trade remaining
steady Miller believes this crop
can be made to produce $1,000 an
acre at the end of ten years. The
farmer has asked the state colleKe
to aid him in plans for pruning tai
recover the same drug element
found in the mature bark.
