S. Fuel Administra tion regarding the wasteful methods of handling gasoline and oil and gives it space: "There is no desire to put the country on a fuel ration but it is necessary that all users discon tinue all wasteful uses of fuel oil, gasoline, kerosene and ail other oil products. "Motorists should net run their engines when the car is not in motion. They should avoid overfilling tanks and see that no oil or gasoline is spilled or al- low :Q to leak. Carburetors snoui-a oe aaiusxeu io opcid.c uu the thinnest mixture. All un necessary driving should be dis couraged. "If sufficient gasoline and oil cannot ' saved from what in now wasted in the ways above suggested, then such mandatory control as will assure the quan tities needed for the conduct of the war will be inevitable." :Vo . . 1 .- x'l', V .
