The ancient romans used it to Seal bottles and made sandals and in the modern world it has countless other uses. We also have synthetic corks but none of these Man made materials have All the Good qualities of the real thing. For that we must go to certain sturdy old Oak Trees that prefer to grow in sunny parts of Europe. Chances Are there is a slim lining of Cork under a bottle Cap and maybe a layer of Cork in the sole of your shoe. There is Cork inside the Walls of most refrigerators and often it is used to line entire rooms. For Cork is used to Nake materials used to cover floors insulate Walls and soundproof ceilings. Some is used to make bottle stoppers and of course Cork is the most dependable material you can use to stuff a life Belt. And All of these Corky materials Are made from the bark of the Cork tree. The sturdy old tree is an Evergreen Oak that keeps its Lively Green leaves All year. A obviously we would like this valuable tree to grow around the world. But it does Best in Spain Portugal and the algerian Region of North Africa. There every summer they Harvest thousands of tons of thick porous bark from the Cork Trees. For the first 20 years of its life a cultivated Cork tree produces nothing More useful than Shade. Meantime it gradually grows a layer of remarkable outer bark around its trunk and branches. All Trees of course grow a rough layer of outer bark built from boxy cells of dead Wood. But the Cork tree s outer bark is something special. Its thin Woody cell Walls Are thickened with waxy material and filled with air. There May be too million of tribute in English and French the two languages of the conference. Votes Are never taken and titles Are never used. A government official or an ambassador is Plain mister. Bernhard is or. Chairman. Quot the purpose of the conference a he has said a is that eminent persons in every Field get the Opportunity to speak freely without be ing hindered by the knowledge that their words and ideas will be Analysed commented upon and eventually criticized in the press his pulling Power appears to Date from world War ii. Having taken his family into exile he won his wings with Britain s Royal air Force and reputedly got into rows with the British for going on unofficial bombing excursions Over Germany. He ended the War As commander in chief of the dutch armed forces and a Good Friend of Gen. Dwight d. Eisenhower. Bernhard now 62. Unhesitatingly used his wartime contacts to get the Hilderberg Conception rolling. He has consistently asserted its Only aim is to Foster the transatlantic relationship. Bernhard clearly expects that within influential circles the ideas emerging from Hilderberg will make their impression. Of his personal role he said a i d consider my own work in the same Light As practically everything i do. I am Only a Richmond a. Apr the Richmond police detective who handled the Case of a child kidnapped from Georgia earlier this month has been reassigned to his Post after a stint on uniform patrol duties.

Safety director Jack m. Fulton said. A i have no comment on the Transfer. More than necessary has already been made of this. He s been restored and that s the end of the a Caine a Transfer involved the hours that passed Between the discovery of a 4-year-Oid boy in a Richmond store june 5 and the notification of authorities at the boys Marietta ga., Home. The boys Mother and police in Marietta strongly criticized Richmond police for delay in notifying Georgia authorities. Cain had been in the missing persons Bureau for 12 years and had a clearance rate of cases exceeding 95 per cent when he was transferred following the criticism. The child later identified As Gabriel Goodman was found the afternoon of june 5 with a note pinned to his shirt saying a i am from Atlanta. Please help me get Atlanta police were notified the following Day and his Mother flew to Richmond to pick up her son that night. In his letter Leidinger said a it appears to me that det. Cain made a mistake in not following up on the note which was pinned to the Young child stating he was from Atlanta and requesting help in getting him the City manager said.

Because of this porous Quality Cork floats on water keeps out moisture and tends to insulate against heat and cold. After 20 years Cork strippers arrive with Long handled knives. They make careful slices Down the trunk and along the main boughs and Peel Back the valuable outer bark. The Job must be done with great care for if the inner bark is bruised the next crop of outer bark will fail to cover the wound. If All goes Well the patient Cork tree will spend the next ten years or so re building outer bark Over the stripped area. The Best Quality Cork begins with the third Harvest when the tree is 40 years old. Ten years seems a Long time to wait Between harvests but cultivated Cork Trees live and keep on yielding through three or four centuries. And usually the growers arrange to strip about one tenth of their Trees every year. The strips of Corky bark Are boiled to remove tannic acid and to soften the Woody cells. It is sorted into different grades and the Best qualities Are made into bottle corks and such. Poorer qualities Are ground into crumbs pressed and remodeler to make Flat Rolls of insulation floor covering and soundproof materials.
