ffOflTHWBT ARKANSAS Smoke From Coal Found To Make Perfumes, Rubber And Clothes Burningham, · Ala. - (/P) - The ·moke from hot, simmering and boiling coal will make good drinking ethyl alcohol, perfumes, gaso- l 1 "". . medicines, rubber clothes, plastics and scores of other syn- M.i.L.; .chemicals. . ' ·'· The smoke is the result o£ lighting a fire in a seam of undergound coal, and then boiling, instead of consuming most of the coal. The quality of this coal smoke is 'all- importanti and How to get it is the subject of a two-day symposium here at the first International Conference on the Underground Gasification of Coal. Two of the fumes already' produced by these underground fires it Gorgas, Ala., in England, Germany, Belgium, France and Italy--are carbon monoxide and hydrogen. They arc the basic materials for the perfumes and all the rest ot the miracles to come from smoke. Dr. Carl Bordenca, of the Southern Rcssarch Institute, at Birmingham, explained that the synthetic methods and catalysts already exist for making all these conversions. As soon as the engineers are able to produce these Rases in useful quantities) Dr, GENUINE BOCK SBfiffi: BordeJica said, new industries will become possible. lie said the alcohol made from the coal fumes, may compete in c«st .with lermenlation and petroleum alcohols. " The underground fire, at one end of a seam, melts the coal ahead ot it. Fumes--all valuable gases --rise and flow up a chimney. What is left forms a crude kind ol coke which continues the fire, and this coke, too, because it is en- dosed in the earthern lube, produces further valuable gases. Explosion Destroys Building, Hurts 15 Fanningdale, N. Y.-(/P)-A gas main explosion demolished a small savings and loan association building yesterday and injured at least 15 persons.

BROKERAGE CO. Reopening--All New Merchandise --March 1 By SAM DAtVSON New York-(/P)-lndustry's drive to crawl out from under controls grows more clamorous. It coincides with President Truman's appeal for tighter controls. And into this picture steps the incoming price sta'jllizcr, Ellis Arnall, wth a promise to study the chances for decontrol--where that wouldn't hurt "the rest of our production." Many products are sailing below ceiling prices--w h e n they sell. And the men who make and sell them contend price controls are just nuisances. They also charge the red tape involved in keeping all the material control records and conforming to all the inventory regulations is both costly and crippling to business. .Growing louder in these demands for decontrol are representatives of the food ii.c'ustry and makers of tires, textiles, clothing and shoes. And, surprisingly enough, the steel and lead industries say that their once critically scarce products are moving over into the category of abundance. · The president, however, says inflation may soon be a threat again. He wants tighter controls to hold djwn the cost of living and warns Congress; "Most people are already having trouble paying present prices. For their benciil, we should be working,'not to legislate formulas for raising prices, but instead to find ways of moving prices downwaro, as increasing productivity and more production makes that possible." Those who want decontrol contend prices are more likely to go lower if the law of supply and demand is freed from government interference. Typical Arfumenta The . steel industry comes up with typical arguments. Controls hurt the smaller companies, they contend, because some steel items are in easy supply now but they Can't sell these items since steel consumers aren't allowed to use enough of them fof civilian goods. They want the steel companies to be allowed to fill their order books for wire, mechanical tubing, sheets and strip--now in fairly easy supply. They contend, this would in no. way increase the shortage of other steel products- such as structural steel--needed by the defense Industries. The lead industry--which jumped from scarcity to plenty rather suddenly a few weeks ago--is asking the Office of Price Stabili' zation to study the chances of decontrol by spring. The textile industry--in the dumps for almost a year now-says controls tend to hamstring it. Since most textile prices are below official ceilings, price con- roli serve no purpose as far as oldlng down the cost of living s concerned, the industry argues, 'he food Industry complains o[ he cost of meeting government i--ulatlnns. Spokesmen say profits ire slipping and competition - JIIIIK most food prices below elllngs anyway. Tire makers insist there are ibundant supplies of rubber now, hat corjtrols are useless, that man should be able to buy 0ALLY111/E AFFILIATED NATIONAl HOTEIS AlAIAMA tL ADMtlAl StMMES ................
