Vol that a shortage of antifreeze may cause serious problems for county road work this winter. "We need .about 1,500 gallons of antifreeze this winter for all of the county's road equipment Right now we have about 800 gallons and we are having ;reat difficulty in locating the lalance of the needed supply.' Judge Lester said of the shortage. He also noted that the inflationary price of the antifreeze is placing a strain on [he county road budget. The county purchased 400 gallons of antifreeze last week from B o b b y Hopper Ford of springdale for $2.000. "The price per gallon has risen from about $1.50 last year to about S3 this year. The county has no choice in the matter. When it comes time to clear the snow off the roads, we have to be out there, regardless of shortages and infla- report c h i a t r possibly damage.

Purchasing agent Lonnie said for that the the main antifreeze shortage is a lack of manufacturing capacity for ethlyene oxide from which ethylene glycol, antifreeze's m a i n ingredient, is produced. He added that methyl alcohol, costing about $1-45 a gallon, may be used as a freeze preventativc this winter in the event that antifreeze is unobtainable for county road machinery. Gilbow said that methyl alco hoi is not as efficient as regular antifreeze as it tends to dissipate when the water within an engine begins to boil. However, be said, the use of methyl alcohol would keep road machinery operating if a crisis should arise this winter.
