Paper Andy sends a complete 20- volumc set of the Merit Stu- (ients Encyclopedia to Vir- ginia Sperry, age 8, of Cor- ona del Mar, California, lor her question: Can tbey really make paper from wood? A sturdy tree looks uolhing at all like a dainty sheet of paper. Making paper from wood seems downright Impossible. Hut a long time ago, somebody thought of a way to do it. Later Hie recipe was improved many times. Nowadays, making paper from wood is no problem at all, though it is a very big job. Paper mills need lots of run- ning water, sacks of chemicals and huge'piles of lumber. They also need mighty machines to do the heavy work and fur- naces to cook the soupy mix- lures. Wood is made of lough, stringy fibers. To make paper, these fibers arc chopped into tiny-tiny pieces and matted to- gether, AVater and chemicals arc added to make the mixture soft and white. Then the soupy .stuff is squeezed in thin layers. When it dries, tiie bits of wood fiber hold the material togeth- er in smooth, sheets. In fe'.v a paper mil] can turn a huge pile of tree trunks into tons of everyday paper. Naturally the big job must be done step by step and all the proper ingredients must be handy. The best place for paper mill is near a forest and beside a stream. II may be a lonely spot, bnt there must be a read to bring in the needed chemicals and perhaps some of the. mighty Iree trunks. The same road is there to take the tons of finished paper to mar- ket. Most of it goes to other factories that use it to make notebooks and envelopes, tis- sues and towels and dozens of other papery items. The first step is to chop up .hose mighty tree trunks. There are buzzing saws to slice them in sections and spinning drums to peel off the hark. Other ma- cluncs work hard to chop the slices Into small chips. T h c flaky fragments are washed and dropped into a huge metal pot called a digestor. Chemi- cals and water are added and the mixture is cooked lo a soupy pulp. Most of our everyday paper is made, from this wood pulp. When it leaves Ihe digestor, the pnlp is washed and rinsed, stirred and beaten and blown through screens, 'lliese opera liens remove the gritty bits and fluff up the fibres. Then it goes to a mixing box to get ready for the driers a n d rollers. thin layer of moist, pulp spreads onto a long moving bell which guides it through the roll- ers. And way down the line, otii comes a never ending strip o: finished paper. It is flat and dry enough to wind in huge rolls. can make paper from all sorts of other materials and some is better than the kind made from wood pulp. Paper made from rags lasts for years anil years. Paper with cotton threads is extra strong. But these papers are expensive. Our everyday papers of wood pulp arc cheaper, but forests must be cut down to them. We can save some of the trees by recycling our used papers. Per- haps you know a center they collect bundles of used paper. Some mills use them in- stead of fresh wood chips to make recycled paper, which is as good as brand new.

In a letter to contributors she slates: "Everywhere I was re- ceived with open arms as the representative of a n agency which is deeply trusted and respected for its strictly norv dcnominalional, non political, non racial principles. I am happy to assure you that the depth and usefulness of our projects have reached new heights, Itt close co-operation with our indigenous partner agencies.
