Washington, Sept. 16.— Five hun-

wood and similar products, have been
asked by the National Conservation
Commission for information as to all
possible uses of sawdust. From this it
will be seen the Commission is going
into fine details in its inventory of the
natural resources of the country.
Seven thousand lumbermen have been
asked for their opinion as to the waste
of lumber in saw mills, and more than
two thousand lumber dealers and coop
