Waste Paper Need
Greater Than Ever
Residents of Morrow county can
supply . enough waste paper for
14,456 "suits of armor" for 105 mm.
shells, if they will buckle down
and save an average of 10 pounds
of newspapers, wrapping paper and
boxes a month. The 105's are the
big ones that have been helping
American forces in their advance
toward Berlin and Tokyo.
Last year Americans saved 106
pounds of paper per capita, or
enough for about 35 containers
each for the 105mm. shells.
For each ammunition container
or "paper suit of armor" used to
protect the shells from salt water,
dents nicks and corrosive dirt, ap
proximately three pounds of waste
paper are required. Ammunition
container board, one of the princi
pal materials used in making the
"suits of armor," is made from
mixed paper and old corrugated
boxes. . Another material used is
called "tube and can stock", which
is made from all types of waste
Salvage Drive to
Be Made in July
A statewide drive to salvage
waste paper and tin cans will be
held during the last week in July,
according to Mrs. Lucy Rodgers,
county salvage chairman. The drive
comes during one of the busiest
periods in this section but critically-needed
paper and tin must be
gotten in and forwarded to repro

effort is not to be handicapped.
