The Use for
That there is urgent need of con
serving the supply of gasoline if the
ever Increasing demand Is to be met,
Is pointed out elsewhere In this issue
In an announcement by the Standard
Oil Company. Everybody interested
in gasoline including the oil refiners,
automobile engineers, and the Govern
ment itself, is giving a great deal of
thought to this problem.
The war called the attention of the
people to the drastic need of avoiding
waste. Wh.it the Food Administration
did to conserve food is still vividly in
the memory of everybody in the coun
tiy. What the Fuel Administration
did, while Just as valuable, was not so
spectacular, and there are many facts
about the conservation of gasoline
nnd other petroleum products which
have not hitherto been brought out.
For the past few years the petrol
e'um and automobile industries have
both been making great efforts to
keep the supply of gasoline up to the
demand. The oil producers have been
stimulated to find new sources of sup
ply, and have sunk many new wells.
Oil refiners and chemical engineers
have been Improving processes of re
fining, which have made the crude
il yield more gasoline than was
thought possible ten years ago. Auto
mobile engineers have constantly Im
proved the efficiency of engines and
the methods of carburization, so that
the gasoline used will give the great
est power and mileage.
In spite of all that has been done
the War made it necessary to take
still further measures to keep up the
upply. The demand had become so
great that the Fuel Administration
was forced to prohibit in Eastern
States all non-essential use of pas
senger automobiles, and for a time
this request was so extended that only
automobiles in Government, emer
gency or war service were in use on
Sunday. Fortunately the motorist of
the Pacific Coast was not required to
undergo this hardship. Enough gas
oline was produced in California for
all Pacific Coast needs and its distrl
button did not require the use of trans
portation facilities for War purposes,
However, so great was the need of
conserving gasoline in all parts of the
country that President Wilson ap
pointed a Government committee last
summer to determine on and adopt
standard specifications for gasoline
and other petroleum products. This
committee consisted of the U. S. Fuel
Administration and representatives of
the War and Navy Departments, the
U. S. Shipping Board, the Director
General of Railroads, the Bureau of
Standards. It was assisted and ad
vised by technical, experts from each
of these Departments and bodies.
After extended discussions, tests, and
at a reasonable; cost.
These iipeelflcations for gasoline are
for the benefit of the public as a whole.
Tkey make certain a satisfactory gas
oline and at the same time assure a
future supply by using the crude oil
to the best advantage by eliminating
The Standard Oil Company reports
that Red Crown gasoline Is now refin
ed to conform with these United
States Government Standard Speci
fications. It Is gasoline having the
full and continuous chain of boiling
points, from low to high, which Is
absolutely essential in a full powered,
dependable gasoline. It has low boil
ing points for easy starting, medium
boiling points for quick and smooth
acceleration and high boiling points
for power and mileage.

A recent number contains among
many other good things, an article en
titled. "Our Daily Milk," which Indi
cates that the milk question is a per
plexing one on the Mainland, even as
it is here. According to this article
the Children's Bureau has in recent
months conducted Investigations in
Baltimore, Washington and New Or
leans to find out the extent to which
milk is used in families where there
are small children. In Baltimore it
was found that 66 per cent of the , jS
children under eight got no milk at g
all; in Washington, 45 per cent; In j
New Orleans, 70 per cent. In the last kd
named city, only one out of every J jg
twenty of the children between two 2
and seven years get as much as three jg
cups of milk a day; and this Is the E
minimum which the bureau has found j
necessary for the maintenance ot S
The investigation showed a culpable 1
indifference to the issues Involved;!
people apparently do not care. Fifty j
three per cent of the milk sold In New :
Orleans is neither pasturized nor in-'
spected. In Baltimore the foreign
born mothers, although their incomes
are slightly lower than the Incomes of
the native white mothers, have more
generally than any other group con
tinued to buy milk. In Washington
this underfeeding continues in spite
of a public health regime which In
many respects is a model to the whole
The reason generally given 'for this
unfortunate condition is the high
price of milk. But this condition pre
vailed very much the same before the
advent of high prices. "No matter

Ask the foreign mothers of Balti
more why nine out of every ten of
them buy fresh milk. They, know the
value of it! In New Orleans in spite
of increasing milk prices, a tendency
is shown to purchase milk of a better
grade. The average consumption of
canned milk in New Orleans is nearly
five times as large as that in Wash
ington, and twice that in Baltimore.
At that rate surely it would be pos
sible to buy more fresh milk even at
16 cents a quar.
