Flappsr Foe Will Take the Place of Gasoline in Belief of Chemists Studying Problem. By ISRAEL KI.KI.V Science Editor, ;NEA Service Chemists of the United fifU and Europe are making progre with alcoliol as a substitute fuel for g&foliiie in automobile;,. These experts now say they or prepared to offer the motorist art even more efficient fuel when t present oil supply has dwindled. Furthermore, they add, there will he no worry over [lie future supply of alcohol as alcohol is ;i natural plant, product made easily from vrgetaWes nml other materials that heretofore have been wasted. It can be produced continuously like a crop. Today alcohol as a motor rue' is generally used in Sweden. Hungary, Italy and Czechoslovakia, while England. France and Germany are experimenting with u Cuba, Brazil, Panama, the Philippines also have automobiles that run on alcohol, or a mixture en alcohol and gasoline. In England, in order to solv» the gasoline fi;cl supply problem, the Royal Automobile Club Is 01- ganizing a spring contest o: mote.- vehicles run on fuels other tlriii gasoline—alcoliol. heavy fuel oils, gas and solid fuels such as \vood peat and coal briquets. It's Beller Than Gasolins Experiments made by a laruc British company show that, alcohol is much more efficient than benzol or gasoline in preventing cirjinu knock. This" •company has produced an alcohol that is almo^ entirely free from -.rater, which can be mixed with gasoline in any proportion. Plans arc being made to prepare such mixtures as nn:i- knock fuels. But an American cheinisi. e;<.pert on alcoholic fuels. go?s Sir.- ther with ;he statement iiui improper fuel is pure alcohol alone. He is Dr. Henry Arnestein of Philadelphia. Dr. Anistein says that aicono.' the rcmnrk "One flapper will ruin a Imlf dozen (;wl men." Pr •'• M.

Having siarti with gasoline, tliey have continue: designing their motors for tins fuel. Dr. Arnstein points out th; va rious ways iu; which alcohol is superior to gasoline. Has No Poisonous Kxhiust "Gasoline," he says, "contains no oxygen, while alcohol contains <ii 1-2 per cent of its weight in i!i:form of oxygen.'This is the rckv- I son why alcoliol burns up com- i pleiely in the eiujhie while gas... i line, due to its lack of oxygen, re• quires a larger amount of air lor ; its combustion tlir.n alcohol. Tlu' •j nitrogen of the excess air. rt- ( quired for the combustion of gasoline, dilutes the exhaust, carrying luvay mucli heat, find thus ureuii 1 . reduces the thomial I'irici.'ncy 01 Ilic engine." The (.•oinbustlon prculuct of gsi- ollne is carbon monoxide, a deadl. gas. The combubtlon product t: alcohol Is carbon dioxide, ft clcr.::. harmles.s pruduet used for th" pre^'rvatlon of foods and o'.luri lii'lplul piir|»srs. Alcohol also ts safer In the fi'.e. thin it mixes easily with ivatei. while gasoline does not. An nk-u- 1ml fire can easily be extiugiil.shc'.i. .M.nle From Waste I'rudiiils Alcohol can be mucli chcup:" llian ijn.soliiie. says Dr. Arnstcm, because it is made from suc:i waste products ns spoiled cereals. molasses and sawdust, while i:. by-products are valuable. Large quantities of alcaliol n-. automotive fuel were us?d durin' Hie wai- by Germany and founu highly efficient and economical At that time it was mixed wilo benrol and napthnlcne. The U. S. Post Olllce Department experimented with nlcohol m airplane engines, in connection witn H.s airmail service, and io:m.i that alcoliol resulted in nn increase in miles per gallon of fuel used, a marked increase in power and considerable saving in lubricating oil.
