Previously some bi£ nil companies either tnrurd up their noses at the idea of using alcohol with pnsolinc ur foupht h. B u t with d)minl.sliiiiq petroleum reserves nnd new hl»h compression motors, now they are .suddenly interested. One auiomo- blle maker ts following the tests closely, with the thought of mnk- nlcohol injection a part of standard cquiomcnt. A large taxi company in Chicago plans to try it on a fleet of cabs, and there arc devices on the market which enable you lo adapt the idea to any car engine. Only Small Tank Neeessary Making engines that use alcohol injections is relatively simple, the scientists say. And only a small tank for the alcohol is necessary because very little Is used. The Injection Into the cylinders Is automatic when Ihe pull on the engine increases or for stnrthiR. The driver has lo do nothing with If except occasionally nil Ihe tnnlc. Experts working on the project believe that II would be very effective on the higher compression engines now being held back by shortage of hish nclane fuels. Tests Indicate that alcohol Injection Is practical and economical. Excellent results are reported bv private persons who are using It on their cars. A grade of alcohol produced from waste corn cobs and other farm products is used. ChemuiKy also is about to revolutionize the. frozen food business Although the sale ol frozen foods has increased enormously since before the war. the industry is limited by the. high cost of transportation, II requires refrigerated 'rains, trucks, storage places and display counters. This is obviously very expensive nnd limits its ability to compete with non-frozen foods. First Kuultit Good Chemurgy is attempting to discover how much water can be taken out of food before freezing, without nrTectlns 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 Farm Youths To Observe 4-H Club Week varlely has been tried throughout the Mute and through the .south, and U lias performed well wherever urown.
