WOOL PROCESS Minimising Shrinkage INTERESTING STAGE SYDNEY, Wednesday. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury — 27 December 1939
WOOL PROCESS Minimising Shrinkage INTERESTING STAGE SYDNEY, Wednesday. The new process for minimising shrinkage in wool had 3'et to be proved and there should not be too much optimism about the pro ject until success was put beyond doubt, warned the chairman of the Council for Scientific and Indus trial Research, Sir George Julius. The process had reached the stage where it was very interesting. The new process for making wool 'unshrinkable' has been devised by two scientists, Messrs. R. R. Fresney and M. Lipson, at the McMaster La boratory at the Sydney University. 'The C.S.I.R. undertakes hundreds of problems and success has one chance in every hundred,' said Sir George. 'Every no-v and then we get a winner that pays dividends.' Ho explained that 'unshrinkable' meant a reduction of. shrinkage and I was purely a relative term, iden tically the process must do effectively what it set out to do and do it at an economic cost. This particular pro cess was made more effective, but the c...

BETTER PASTURES Value of Phalaris Tuberosa PALATABLE GRASS SYDNEY, Wednesday. ? Sown pastures are adding great ly to the stability of the dairy industry on the near South Coast, »ays the chief agrostologist of the Department of . Agriculture, Mr. J. Whittet, after a tour of inspection of the area. As in past years, Mr. Whittet said, he found that most landholders had sown the standard mixture of per ennial rye and white, red, and sub terranean clovers with a consider able measure of success, but the manner in which paspalum domin ates the pasture after being estab lished for a number of years and tends to crowd out the winter grow ing rye grass, had made it essential that a more persistent perennial grass species be sown. 'In Phalaris tuberosa,' sa.id Mr. Whittet yesterday, 'wo have a pala table, all-the-year-round grass which is more dry-weather resistant than perennial rye and, when sown with clovers in a well prepared seed bed relatively free from paspalum, will, when well establ...
