OIL DREES UP The American oil industry is now spending the huge sum of $t;800.000-in a powerful counter- sales campaign to persuade people not to buy oil. The amazing fact is that it was only just recently that the oil in- dusltry was willing to face the facts impossible, it is' highly 'unlikely. Geologists have been^prob^ng the most promising terrain for the past 15 years \vithout tapping a single, major field. So, while our productive capacity. has reached its* peak, the nalio'n is draining its oil reservoirs faster than new oil can be poured in. The deficit is estimated at 429.000 barrels per day, and the rate of consumption is on the upswing. : The only immediate solution is to increase foreign oil imports.- This is why Arabian oil and the dynamite-laden near east become so important. The government already plans to import more oil than- it exports this, year--for the first, time in history. In case of wary of course, outside oil could be cut; off by submarines. This leaves the only remaining answer: synthetic petroleum. And experts say it .will- take another ten years to produce synthetic petroleum commercially.

And today its potatoes because i just know that the potato family boasting to its vegetable neigh- 'bors about the elevated position it holds in the world today. Of course that wasn't always true foi back in the 18th century Europeans believed them highly poisonous and that they polluted the tarth. In fact, in Ireland potatoes v.ere known as "lazy rots." But goodness, they're far from that these days when so many of v.b depend upon them to take the place of \vheat products.
