National Archives. Washington, D.C., Nov. 22. In the powerful press, the sheets of acetate, under heat and pressure 'melt' into the pores of the paper and adhere to each other as well. One additional advantage of this process is that, after being pressed with the sheets of cellulose acetate, the paper is thinner and takes up less room than it did originally. The result is a sheet of paper and acetate which comes off the polished metal plates as a single sheet. Tests for the aging of this material made by the Bureau of Standards in Washington have shown that this treatment of the paper, called laminating is as permanent as it is possible to make any record of paper

Defense housing, Erie, Pennsylvania. Pre-fabricated sheets of asbestos reinforced with gypsum serve as an economical base for plaster walls and ceilings. These sheets, nailed directly to studs, also afford protection against heat and cold. A crew of fourteen men (ten lathers and four laborers) can lathe a four-unit building in a few hours. A crew of plasters moves in as the crew of lathers moves out. Although defense homes are speedily built, they are soundly constructed. Government inspectors keep a rigid check to see that all construction materials live up to government standards
