WILL GASOLINE SUPPLY BE EXHAUSTED?
In disousMiip I In" lnr-vrnm? demand for gasohlie ami the pros
pecis of an insufficient supply P. J Haskki says the oil supply I
Question, like every othci vita) question in Amcricaj has been con
Verted into a frightful bugaboo, which is used to scare, and ye1 th
truth is Hirrc is no uim reason for undue alarm, and Llaskill makes
ibis statement :
The consumption of gasoline in this country increases
at an alarming rate. That is the first important fact. 1
looks as though we would always use all the gas we can j
grt. Barring some improbable great find pi oil in this coun
try, we will always live in fear dff a shortage and we will
j occasionally suffer a temporary shortage ai least We are
dependent upon constant new discoveries foi keeping up
ur supply From 20 to 35 per emu of the oil we use in
I any year comes from new wells. Wo are to some extent like
the tramp who never knows where the riext meal i. coming
from, but who nearly always finds it somewhere. Each year
there is a little oil boum or a big one feonfewhere in the
United States, and that oil boom saves the situation If a
year or two should pass without the opening of new wells
i of substantial value, Mien- would be a shortage which would
probably continue until uev finds were made.
! In other words, whili il d "i our known oil supply
just a little way ahead our unknown ml supply keeps
( oming to the res ue But it is not a thing to relp upon.
Then, too. our known oil supply is being stretched in
LM ways that were nol dreamed of a few years ago Wells in
oil fields sueh as that ai P.radford. Pa., which were sup
posed to be about exhausted, are being made to yield, and
LLm the forcing of a flow of oil by means of compressed air are
LLm the best of these method.. As a result ot what they have
shown, some experts believe that we have nol been recbv
; ering more than 20 per cent oi the "il from our wells, and
i they believe that our estimate of oil supply in this country
must be increased at Least 50 per rent and perhaps Km per
J The sources of new supply of motor fuel are natural gas and the
I' tar produets of coking; also tin- "l from shales and tin' production
of alcohol from vegetable matter. But gas produced from either
source would be much more expensive than tne present ;irtKi
As to the present situation and 1 li outlook, Haskiu says:
'The situation maj ! sized up by saying thai no ri -at shorta
A sudden exhaustion of the oil Bupplj i- apl in occur bul Jempo-:-ary
shortages anl disturbing vacillations in pricf are almosl i ei
tain to occur. The supply of motor fuel probably can be sustained
indefinitely, and whether this is don and Imw well depends Largely ;
upon how the Bupph is administered bj the government and by the
private interests why) control it This administration in turn prob
ably depends upon how well the average consumer understands hist
own interest in the matter ami how vigorously he asserts it
I A WORTHY PRECEDENT
To the La! norma Olive association is due the credit for setting h
precedent ju the manufacture of food products that il generally
heeded as it should be, will eliminate for all time the cases of.
ptomain that continue to add an element of despair to the pages of
our daily press
This bogie to the food consuming publii has been mel and over
come. Heretofore we have been satisfied with frequentlj repeated
warnings, both in the press and on the labels of all varieties of
canned foods, to "boil contents before using
But human nature has always suffered from its own carelessness
or ignorance, and will continue sn to sutler unless il is protected.
The California Olive association ha-, gone directly to the bottom
of the matter
Last winter they helped to raise a fund of one hundred thousand
dollars to investigate the cause of spoiled foods and find means toj
The ablest scientists in the country w&rt employed to carry on
extensive investigations with instructions to continue their work
untd they had found au effective remedy.
What these scientists discovered sounds vei v simple but it is
very important to the consumers of prepared foods.
One of the causes of food spoilage is a germ known as bacillus
bstuhnus. This germ can be killed by a temperature of 240 degrees
maintained for forty minutes
They have secured the fo-perai ion of the California state board
of health to have a ruling written into the laws of the state that do
olives mav be packed for sale in I alifornia that have not beeu ster
ilized at a temperature of 240 degrees for Eortj minutes.
They have gone about this matter in a two-fisted he-man fashion I
and thev deserve the thanks and appreciation of the entire country.
They will not suffer by their action because it will not be long
before the public at large will realize that what they have done is
to secure the guarantee of the laws of the state of California of Iheir
product, and the confidence that will be given to ripe olives will soon
rpay them for their great expenditure of money and effort.
It 16 to be hoped that the manufacturers nf other canned food
products will not be long in profiting b the precedent set l the
California Olive association and that we will be freed for all tini'.
