Ashcraft COMPANY Block Smu, By Douglas I.Arscn XKA Stjfl Correspumlcnt WASHINGTON. <NEA>—"Cllem- uiRy" is a word that may become very popular in the next .lew years. Coined by scientists of the u. S. Department of Agriculture. It means I the use of chemistry to find greater I uses for farm products. Chpnuirgy I already Is responsible for the giant i soy bean Industry, with nil of its • by-products, to name just one beue- jtll. Ii helps the farmer and makes ' Hie more comfortable for everybody. ' One of the most significant , clu-niurfiical projects lutrler way In USDA laboratories might help to | relieve the crowing drain on U. s. i petroleum reserves. It's 11 brand new aiipronch lo that old idea of using a'.cohol. made frmn waste farm I I products, as automobile fuel. The I lariners and oil companies have been kicking that one around for years. Up null! now U has never | I 'Jc-en found practical to use alcuhul | I ;<s a tnotor fuel, or mixed with unso- 1 hue, because the alcohol lias been I li>o expensive. j Alcohol Injerlcd t Tlie new approach of USDA srirn- t ti-sts is a method of injeciiiiK alcohol into the cylinders of n car when it is going up B hill. Marling, or In <'thpr need of emergency power. This would eliminate the need lor Inch test or premium gasoline, they !•»>'. It would save petroleum, because tn Hie refinlni! process you get more regular gasoline from n barrel of crude petroleum than you net when refining 11 for high test •gasoline. Widespread use of the alcohol Injection method would permit the big refining companies to reduce drastically their production of hi-;h oc- Une tins, nnd thereby Rive ihein nn estimated 10 per cent more gaso- !ine from their crude petroleum. Previously some bi» oil companies either turned up their noses nl. thc idea or using alcohol with gasoline or fought II. nut with dlminlsliiiiK petroleum reserves and new hii'.h crminresslon motors, now they nrn suddenly interested. One automobile maker Is following tlie tests closely, with the thought of junk- Ing alcohol injection a part of slan- dnrci cquimncnt. A large taxi company in Chicago plans to try it mi a fieri of cabs, and there are devices on the market which enable you to adapt Ibe idea lo any car engine. Only Small Tank Necessary Making engines Unit use alcohol injections Is relatively simple, the scientists sny. And only B small tank (or the alcohol Is necessary because very little Is used. The Injection into the cylinders is automatic when the pull on the engine increases or lor starting. The driver has lo do nothing with U e.xccpl occasionally fill the lank. Experts working on thc project believe that it would be fery effective on the higher compression engines now being held back by shortage of high octane fuels. Tests indicate that alcohol Injection is pracllCBl and economical. Excellent results are reported by private persons who arc using it on their cars. A grade of alcohol produced from waste corn cobs and other farm products is used. Chemurgy also is nlxml to revolutionize the frown food business Although the sale of frozen foods nas increased enormously since before the war. the industry is limited by Ihe high cost of transportation, n reritiires refrigerated trams, trucks, storage places and display counters. This is obviously very expensive and limits Its ability to compete with noii-froien foods First Komlix Good ' Chemurgy is attempting to discover how much water can be taken out of food before freezing, without affecting taste. In an attempt to cut down the high cost of transportation and storage. First results have been excellent. It has been discovered, for instance, that 50 per cent U of A Develops Tomato Especially Fined to State ol the water can be taken out of peas, and when followed by <|iiick j fiee/.lllg they lose none of their' flavor. Tests on other vegetables have shown similar resillls. Ordinary rooking restores the water, The list ol chemurgicnl discoveries Is long. A continuous process of manufacturing lurpenllne and resin has been developed lo supplant the old butch method nurf will revitalize tlie whole industry In Hie .soulh. j SiMD-Ktioniil tvmk has been done in (leroloplnt; certain cotton plants ! thiil produce excellent ntlr« for i tire fabrics.
