Ton of Oil Can Made From Two Tons Of Bituminous Coa oC the the PITTSBURGH, Feb. 23.--A process whereby a ton of oil can be made from two tons pE bituminous coal by hydrogenution was described by John W. Finch, director of the Pittsburgh experimental station the U. S. Bureau of Mines, a'. advisory board meeting of bureau. Although" costs now are loo high for commercial use of the process. Finch said that in 10 or 15 years the United States may be forced to resort to such methods to obtain oil, if present reserves should become exhausted. Describing the process, Finch said: "The tests in this hydrogcnation plant indicate that the bituminous coal o£ Western Pennsylvania is the best coal for this purpose. Our . scientists have been able to extract a ton of oil'from'two tons of. this coal." Finch pointed out that although the costs are still exhorbitant, -hydrogcnation processes are steadily -being improved and simplified and "that "within 10 or 15 years," this country may be forced to obtain its oil from coal despite the expense. - Finch also described to the board, which is composed of prominent mining : company ^executives and 'labor leaders-appointed;by the Secretary.'of .thnr Interior, a'new method of extracting."manganese from ores. .The process, .developed in the Boul' dor Daul region, will obviate imports "of manganese. lor'.the making of .steel.

Iowa Boom For Hopkins Chilled In Washington By LYLE C: WILSON United Pi oss Stall' Correspondent. WASHINGTON, Feb. 23.--Secretary of Commerce Harry L. Hopkins' first normal appearance as concilia- to- between business and the lMc\v Deal became embarrassingly involved today with 1IMO presidential politics. Hopkins left Monday night lor Grinnell, la., to remain three days before delivering in DCS Moines his widely publicized first address as the representative of! business around the Roosevelt Cabinet table. His departure was preceded by dispatches from Des Moines (hat Democratic Stiite Chairman Ed. H. Birmingham has undertaken to align 1940 Demo- ratic National Convention delegates for Hopkins. He did not comment on thai unexpected development. The Iowa boom for Hopkins sot a chilly reception here. Old line Democrats, battling for with President Hooscvclt for control of next year's convention, generally concede Hopkins' administrative ability but they do not want him as their 19-30 presidential candidate. There have been some indications, however, that Mr. Roosevelt might like Hopkins' to succeed to the White House, provided, of course, there is no third term. Witii emergence of the Hopkins boom--with or without his sanction --Iowa comes up with two New Dealers cither of whom probably would be acceptable to Mr. Roosevelt next year but against whom Postmaster General James A. Farley and a powerful bloc of conservative Democrats would raise every available obstacle. The other lowai; is Secretary ol Agriculture Henry A. Wallace. Wallace and Iowa are almost synonymous. Hopkins also is a tall corn boy, roared in Sioux City and educated at Grinnell College, where he will renew old acquaintances this week. But lie has been away from the home town a long time.
