FT, LRAUIRDAh, FLA. A group of technicians of the Soil Conserva-
tion Service of the USDA'is making the most comprehensive survey and study
of the organic soils of the Evorglados that has over been undertaken by any
- agency. This group of workers has already completed a detailed survey of
474,24. Wores and a reconnaissance survey of 1,585,920 acres. The entire
project cov6rs a total of 4,499,200 acres, and it is hoped that the field
work can be concluded by the first of July. It is felt by those most familiar
with the Everglades that the information being assembled by the SCS will prove
quite helpful in planning a sound, long-time development programs and will
greatly aid in preserving this vast expanse of organic soils.

Citrus Products Laboratory hero, hhs announced the perfection of a process to
make industrial alcohol from previously unused by-products of citrus pulp
cattle food mills. Tho development of this process sooms particularly timely
to holp in some measure in the production of alcohol for ppudor manufacture
from sources other than sugar. Tho juice from which'the alcohol can be made
is pressed from the pool and pulp in the manufacture of cattle food from cannery
wasto. It has boon estimated that 61 million gallons of this juico was produced
last season, the disposal of which was a problon. Based on findings of the
Laboratory it is boliovod this juice can be utilized in making industrial
alcohol at relatively low cost*
