THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 1939. THE D A I L Y C O C K I E R . CO.V.VGLLSVILLK. PA- f AtffC ii'JUEVEHV. THROUGH TESTS NEW YORK, Feb. 23.--In an emergency American farmers may grow the country's soft coal in their fields. The fact that fairly good soft coal 5s now being made from sugars, the carbohydrates oC farm crops, was reported to the Amencan Institute of Mining and Metallurgical Engineers by E. Berl, of the Carnegie Institute r _of Technology. The sugar coal Is too expensive to be practical but was made to settle an old controversy aoout the origin of coal and oil. In the Carnegie laboratories, whose experts include some of the leading scientists of tne coal fields, the artificial coal is made in two ways. Sugar heated in water at high temperature produces a sandy form of coal. When weak alkali is added to the ·water, Bcrl said, "excellent cooking coals" are the result. Adding pressure to the hot sugar water increases the amount of carbon in the manmade coal. I These farm product coals, said j Berg, can be treated with hydrogen to make the same products which th.e Germans and English obtain from "hydrogenated" coal. These products include gasoline and oil for motor cars. In nature, he snid, water in contact with certain rocks develops the same kind of alkalinity used in the sugar-coal retorts at Carnegie Tech. These rocks include limestone, dol- raite, magnesite and zeob'te. It is concluded that nature made its coal Eiom plant sugars. The old idea, Eerl said, that coal *ame from the woody, or Lgnin, part 3f plants is as dead as the idea that Detroleum is from dead fish. He said ;he Carnegie experiments show that real, oil and bitumen all come from carbohydrates in plants. Billions for /Arms Confluence CONFLUENCE, Feb. 23.--Rev. and Mrs. J. S.
