BE IT ORDAINED BY THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS: Section 1. This ordinance shall be known as the “garbage ordinance” of tourists camps, apartments, sanitariums, rooming houses, schools, private residences, vacant lots, and all other places within within the city limits of the City of College Station, where garbage or trash accumulates in ordinary quantities. The various kinds of garbage shall be defined as follows: (a) By the term “Kitchen garbage” as used in this ordinance is meant dry kitchen refuse, all meat, vegetables and fruit refuse, small dead animals and dead fowls, from any premises within the city limits. (b) By the term “dry kitchen refuse” is meant the solids after the liquid or slop has been drained off. (c) By the term “trash” as used in this ordinance is meant paper of all kinds, tin cans, bottles, paper containers, small boxes, and such other smaller items as are usually discorded by households or businesses; it does not include refuse from building construction, large trees and limbs therefrom, heavy accumulations of brick, stone, lumber, ashes, dirt, or other heavy bulky materials. Section 2. every person, firm or corporation owning managing, operating, leasing or renting lises, or any place where gar- trash accumulate, to provide a any premises, or any place where gar bage or trash accumulate, to provide a portable garbage can constructed of gal vanized iron, tin or other suitable metal, with two handles and a tight fitting cover of a capacity not less than five gallons nor over thirty gallons and the daily accumulation of kitchen garbage and dry kitchen refuse shall be placed in this barbage can. It shall also be the duty of every person, firm or corporation owning, managing, operating, leasing or renting any premises to place all trash Du Paiil Hems of Interest in the Fields of Chemistry, Engineering, Physics, and Biology Chemistry Provides New Colors for New Cars In Detroit this spring, automotive engi neers and designers were shown a dozen cars finished in glowing colors never be fore seen on any automobile—colors that diffused and reflected light back to the eye from within the finish instead of from the surface. These new ”Duco” Metalli-Chrome lacquers which attracted industry-wide attention are expected to give new beauty and durability to America’s cars. The story behind their development is an interesting one. New Techniques for Pigment Preparation As many commercial pigments are now made, they are precipitated from chem ical solutions in the form of fine parti cles, which are then dried, ground and reground with a liquid vehicle to pro duce the final paint, enamel or lacquer. The fineness of the particle-size largely determines the luster of the finish. Al though mechanically ground pigment particles can be made extremely fine, they are not nearly as small as the par ticles originally precipitated. A few years ago a program of research was started by Du Pont scientists to try to take advantage of the very fine particles formed by precipitation. They proposed to eliminate the drying and grinding processes entirely—to trans fer the microscopically sized, precipita ted, hydrated pigment particles directly from the mother solution to the lacquer vehicle. Extended study by organic and col loid chemists, physicists and chemical engineers finally solved this problem. The procedure consists of mixing the wet pigment in a heavy-duty mill with water-wetnitrocellulose,dibutyl phthal- ate and castor oil. Dibutyl phthalate forms a colloidal solution with nitro cellulose. The colloid absorbs the castor oil and pigment, but eliminates the major portion of the water as a sepa rate insoluble phase. ! A New Range of Color Effects After the method of transferring wet pigment particles had been established, the second development in this program was the practical utilization of precipi tated ferric hydroxide. Although it had been used for a long time as an inter mediate for the manufacture of dry fer ric oxide pigment, ferric hydroxide in the wet form as a pigment had been ap plied only to a very limited extent and its true value had gone unrecognized. When used in conjunction with the new process, wet ferric hydroxide produced a lacquer of unusual brilliance and dur ability. In combination with other pig ments, a whole new range of color effects became possible. Because of their extremely small pig ment particle-size, the Metalli-Chromes are somewhat translucent, having a dis tinctive, soft innerglow. This lustrous depth is further enhanced by introducing into the film aluminum particles which act like mirrors to reflect the light with in the finish. Not only are these new lacquer fin ishes more lustrous and more beautiful, but they are also more durable, as proved by four years of laboratory and road- testing.

Questions College Men ask about working with Du Pont WILL I FIND COMPETITION DIFFICULT AT DU PONT? It is to be expected that there will be competition in an organization where every effort is made to select the best trained and most promising graduates. However, such competition is not de liberate or is it on an elimination basis. New employees are given every oppor tunity to grow in the organization.
