You can then send me to Alcatraz or Atlanta. I don't want to go to Leavenworth, that's •too hot. Any place but there. I'll be needing the rest, anyhow, so you can make the sentence as long as you like. But to solve the petroleum problems of this war, we'll have to do a lot of things that we've never done before and I just want you to know, about it in advance." That is a dramatic statement of the case, but probably is not much of an exaggeration. Breaking a few laws is perhaps the least of the changes that must be made in the gigantic oil industry, for as Secretary of Interior and Petroleum Co-ordinator Harold L. ickes told a congressional committee the other day, the problem is to shift the economic base of the industry and to do it in weeks instead of years. You are familiar with the main events of the background—the tanker shortage, eastern seaboard fuel oil shortages, gasoline rationing for a third of the nation's motorists, the rubber shortage reducing the need for gasoline, increased haulage by railroad tank car and tank truck. Those are the points where the petroleum industry touches the public at the consumer level. But above this consumer level is where revolutionary things are happening. As' consumption declines, as transportation becomes lighter, the stocks of gasoline are increasing at many southern seaboard refineries. This is happening despite the fact that crude oil product-ion has been curtailed from the 1941 daily average of 4.1 million barrels to around 3.5 million barrels. CHANGE IN TECHNIQUE Refinery technique must be changed to cut down the production of regular gasoline, while the output is increased for 100 octane aviation gas, fuel oils and heating oils. These changes involve a major industrial revolution, but they are only a beginning. Also to be considered is the increased production of petroleum products from which synthetic rubber can be made—butadiene and styrene, which in ratios of 80 HORIZONTAL 1,5 Pictured chairman of Management- Labor Automotive Committee. 9 Senior (abbr.) 10 Serpent. 11 Atmosphere. 12 International language. 14 Discard. 16 Noblemen. 18 Retired nook. 20 Energy. 21 Mountain pass (abbr.). 22 Tall structure. 38 Kitten. 23 Area measure. 41 You and I.

But it may have to be done. * * • WASHINGTON PIPELINES Links between existing petroleum products pipeline systems are being considered as one method of increasing- eastern seaboard deliveries... For instance, on existing gasoline pipeline map. Phillips has line from Texas to East St. Louis; Shell has line from Roxana, 111.. near St. Louis, to Limn. O.; and Sun has line from East Akron, O., to Philadelphia and New York... Links between St. Louis and Roxana, or between Lima and East Akron might help on some supply problrms, and there arc dozens of similar gaps In crude and gasoline lines where short connecting links might solve supply by minimum vise of steel... Catch is that competing companies are now restrained from getting together and fear establishment of connecting links if they would make lines common carriers, open to all producers. . .Entire pipeline picture is now being surveyed and action to make existing lines get together may be forthcoming.

To do this it will be necessary to use less than 150,000 barrels of crude a day. Fortunately, the oil is there, though the equipment to do it with is not.

Refinery experts say that both butadiene and stymie can be produced in high temperature tlu\pnal cracking units. Half the country's normal gasoline supply comes fron this thermal cracking process where temperatures of from 800 to 1100 degrees are employed to break down the crude petroleum. Whei the temperature is raised to 1300, a 4 per cent yield of butadiene and styrene can be obtained, but this can be done only in the best refinery equipment that will stand this extra high temperature. Costs may be higher, yields lower, by this makeshift production, but' im- nediate production can be obtained. CALLS FOR PLAN Here is where a demand comes in for national program planning on a vast scale. Refineries that can make only gasoline would have to be given that job. Other refineries would have to be allocated to 100 octane gas proudction, and those that can produce the materials for Announcements The Courier News has been authorized to announce the following candidacies, subject to the Democratic primary in August, For State Senate L.

You probably have hcardrabout certain government restrictions on telephone service and equipment now in effect. We should like to tell you a little more about these restrictions— why they are necessary, and what they will mean to you. The reason for them is simple and complete. They arc to save materials which are needed to fight the war. What will they mean to you, the telephone user? If you have a telephone now, they mean no change except that you might in some places and under some circumstances have to have other parties on your line. And you can't get an extension telephone in your home if you haven't one already.* For people who have-no telephones and want them, we shall supply at least party- line service wherever there are now enough lines and switchboards. But in general, where new construction of this type would be necessary, we shall uot be able to provide service.* SOUTHWESTERN BELL This will mean inconvenience and perhaps hardship to a few people now. As time goes on it will probably mean inconvenience and hardship to more people, but we need your help and sympathetic understanding in this important step to save the maximum of materials for the war. Beside the great savings in materials already made by substitution and wartime engineering, thenewrcstrictionswillmean that more lead, iron, steel, zinc, copper, and rubber used in telephone equipment will now go into arms, t In spite of all this, and while telephone service may not be available to all who want it, we believe we can keep the service up to a high standard. At any rate, we shall do our level best. These difficulties arc something that neither the government nor the telephone companies can help. They are part of the price of protecting liberty. * Except for those coies where the need for telephone service hat been recognized by the War Production Board as necessary for defense or public health, welfare or security.
