Lago Dis

| For CYI Capital Awards

Lago distributed Fls. 2200 ear-
lier this week to four employees
whose “coined” ideas were con-
sidered the best in _ practice
throughout 1955. LEarlier, they
had received a total of Fls. 850 as
initial awards.

The Capital Awards were made |

by the Coin Your Idea Committee
at a meeting in the General Office
Building Feb. 21. They went to J.



E. Peterson, A. A. G ter, F. Min-|
go and C. A. Gumbs

Mr. Peterson, an operator in Light
Oils Finishing, received the largest
amount Fis. 1000 - for a sugges-
tion that reduced tanker turnaround |
time.

In June, 1954, he proposed that
the No. 16 Crude Line and valves be
relocated. His suggestion was incor- |

porated into plan that extended
the crude line to the Nos. 1, 3 and 11
lines and improved crude discharge

a

pumping rates

It was the second time Mr. Peter-
son had taken down the top Class I
Capital Award. In 195 eived
Fis, 1000 for suggesting
provement in Lago’s crude line lay-



he
another im-



re

out
To be eligible for
a Capital Award,

consideration as
accepted id



must be in their second year of use. |

Fls. 600 - the second largest award - |
went to Mr. Slater, a job order clerk
in the Mechanical Department. He
proposed the purchase of a machine}
which would permit valves to be re-
paired without removal from where
they were installed. |

The third largest award - Fls. 400}
- was made to Mr. Mingo, an oper
tor in the Cracking Plant Division. |
He suggested that an installation be
made on recirculating gas oil reflux
pumps which saved oil and made
unit operation more convenient.





Mr. Gumbs retained his perfect
CYI record with the idea that won
him the fourth largest, Fls. 200, Ca-

pital Award. He suggested that oil
pressure lines be installed on wel-
ding machine engines to reduce
maintenance costs.

Mr
the Mechanical

Gumbs, a garage mechanic A

in Department, has

| turned in six suggestions and had all

six adopted.







Initial awards made in 1954 on
the ideas which won the 1 Capi-
tal Awards were: ;

Mr. Peterson, Fls. 200; Mr. Slater,
Fils. Mr. Mingo, Fls 5 and
Mr. Gumbs, Fils. 125.

Helps Europe Fight Record Winter

Lago Gives A Hand

Europe and England,
years, are getting
here for expres:



ravaged by the worst winter weather
a helping hand from Lago. Fuel oil is being loaded
shipment to Belgium, Germany,

in 100

Italy, and other coun-

tries for distribution throughout the Continent. Other tankers are
speeding toward England.

O } 3 a sea are 2ing di-

ae Blips at a i gees ‘a gium, Germany, Holland, Italy, Swe-
one: PON a Lg en Oe ae awl re atand Norway. They have carried
fulfill their original consignments. |

In the past three weeks more than
650 deaths in Europe and England
have been attributed to sub-freezing
temperatures, blizzards,
floods and other weather disasters. |
Damage estimates run into the bil-
lions dollars and the United
States has offered surplus foods to
help ease the possibility of famine
which threatens many rural areas.

The agricultural loss in Spain
alone is over $50,000,000. France is
estimated to have lost one-third of
its wheat crop.

New blizzards swept the Conti-|
nent and English Isles last Sunday. |
Italy, hard-hit already, was struck
again. Whole areas were isolated by |
snow or floods. Trains were trapped |

avalanches,

of

by 11-foot snow drifts. Falling tem- | es

peratures brought new hardship to
the already battered country.

Fuel oil shortages became so se-
vere that the Italian government
whose strict regulations had long
restricted the import of petroleum
products - relaxed the rules to per-
mit the delivery of heating oils to
relieve increasing hardships.

Ships now at sea are being diver-
ted to deliver at least 680,000 bar-
rels to Italy. Lago has guaranteed to
replace this production.

In the meantime, Lago ‘was busy
this week altering its operations to
take care of the unsual European
demand for heating oil. Crude runs
were increased by 10,000 barrels a
day and a balance in products was
struck by resuming the import of
vacuum gas oil as a feed stock for
the Cat Plant.

In the past two weeks at least 21
tankers have cleared San Nicolas
Harbor for ports in England, Bel-

close to 2,000,000 barrels of heating
oils and other vital petroleum pro-
ducts to the winter-wracked coun-
tries.

Solidarity Is Hailed At Party

Speakers Laud Employees’ Choice

The success with which Lago’s independent employee representation
system withstood repeated challenges from an internationally-affi-
liated union during 1955 was hailed by the two main speakers at the
6th annual Staff and Regular Representatives’ Party.

He put his razor away and started to grow a beard.

Meanwhile, they became the butt
of many a bearded joke, wisecrack

not a whit. They had the satisfac-
tion of doing what they
do.

Mr. Medford has had considerable
experience with beards. "When my
grandfather died in St. Vincent at
the age of 92, they laid him away
with his beard on his chest,” he re-
called. He grew one himself several
years ago.

"It was early in 1945 and the war
was still on. One day I was walking
down the street when the police
spotted my beard and they put me
in jail for a spy. They kept me lock-
ed up all day untill my
came and identified me.”

He quickly shaved.

Speaking at the Aruba Golf Club}
Feb. 11, General Manager F. E. Grif-
fin praised the employees who eva-

J. Hinkson, chairman of the Esso
Heights Advisory Committee, said,
"During recent years the employee
representation system has_ been
challenged with failing efforts.”
Employees and representatives, he
said, should be "commended” for
meeting and defeating these chal-
lenges.

Harking back to an address he
made at the 1955 representatives’
party in which pointed out the com-
petition which faced Lago employ-







ees’ tem of independent repre-
sentation, Mr. Griffin said the en-
suing months "brought to light the

efforts that were being made to cast
aside and end the councils and com-
mittees present here tonight.”
He saluted the "majority
employees” who "carefully weighed
the factors at stake and rejected
other types of representation. The
many achievements of the LEC, SP-
AC and other committees during the
year is convincing proof that there
s looking out
and fighting

of our







for improvements.

But, he added, "you
fight ahead of you to retain and im-
prove this system which, fortunately



|
still have a}



for our employees, is available to
them at no monthly cost.”

Pointing out that the common
goal of all Lago representatives is)
the "furtherance of social, economi-
eal and cultural improvements of
our constituents. Hinkson |

— Min:





added that the men selected to strive
toward this goal were chosen through
democratic means.

"If democracy means anything to
us, then we ought to be reminded
above all else that tolerance plays
a major part in our success,” the
chairman said. The right to criticize
is inherent in democratic institu-
tions, he pointed out, and through
criticism "we as employee repre-
sentatives may realize our short-
comings at the conference table.”

Able representatives, he said,
must be willing to sacrifice "indivi-
dual aspiration for the good of our
constituents. During recent years
our employee representation system
has been challenged with failing ef-
forts. Representatives as well as
employees ought to be commended
in championing these challenges.”

In presenting a review of the year
past and a glimpse into Lago’s fu-

ture - a feature each year at these
parties - Mr. Griffin said the com-
pany operated at full throughput

in 1955, but market conditions forc-
ed undesirable operating changes.
Expenditures for the year totaled
close to Fls. 13,000,000, primarily to
improve operating and maintenance
efficienc harbor facilities plus
pipelines and tankage for jet fuels.
Expenditures for 1956 are expec-
ted to approximate Fls. 20,000,000,
he said. The money will be mainly
spent increased operating effi-
ciency plus facilities to meet con-
sumers’ demands for higher-quality
diesel oils; additional naptha and
distillate tankage; improvements to
AAR-2; additional crude handling
facilities and replacement of some

NOUSVIIAL Resse

A Giant Venture Dedicated To The Future



The laboratory has become industry's newest frontier.
Largely ignored by manufacturers prior to 1930, large-
seale industrial research has today expanded into a
major industry which is someday destined to provide -
according to one Esso executive - productive industry’s most





valuable material

Since the end of World War II, scientific
dustry has blossomed into an enterprise that employs 500,000
persons and sper than $5 billion each ar.

The company’s research activities, however,
are also concerned with allied oil operations. As
a result the company studies not only refining
processes or product control, but such subjects
as industrial hygiene, pipeline construction, tan-
ker corrosion, oil producing problems.

Company Employs Thousands, Spends Millions



Esso Research has its headquarters in Elizabeth, N.J. and
laboratories in New Jersey, Texas, Canada, England and

France. It employs some 4000 persons and in 1955 operated
on a budget of more than $48 million.

The company receives no money from Jersey Standard;
its income is derived from contracts it negotiates with the
various Jersey affiliates. Its suc s is dependent upon the
use affiliates make of its services

In order to make Esso Research as useful as possible, Mr.
Reeves and C. O. Tongberg, a member of Esso Research’s
board of directors, are on a tour of Jersey affiliates in the
United States, South Ameri and Europe.

Mr. Reeves explained they planned to discuss the affili-
ates’ problems with company executives and to point out the
areas in which Esso Research can give them a hand. Discus-
sions of this type, he said, are needed to outline the studies
Esso Research will undertake.

These discussions, he said, are designed to help the affili-
ates maintain their competitive position within the industry
and to maintain the over-all Jersey organization's ability to
"move quickly” to meet a particular marketing situation.

During the trip, he said, they will also confer with automo-
tive, diesel, airplane and other manufacturers to determine
their anticipated needs for fuels, lubricants and other petro-
leum products.







Preview Of The Future

Mr. Reeves and Mr. Tongberg gave a preview of what
Esso Research feels will be part of the future for the oil



industry
Aviation, they said, will become an increasingly important
consumer as jet and turbo-prop planes takes over from pis-

ton-engine planes. Commercial piston-engine planes burn
between 13,000 and 30,000 barrels of fuel a year. Jets and

turbo-props, they said, burn up to 150,000 barrels each year
and by 1960 - according to present orders - there will be
over 500 planes of this type in commercial use

Worldwide commercial aviation gasoline consumption to-
day is about 300,000 barrels a day. By 1965, they said, Esso
Research expected the consumption to skyrocket to 1,000,000
barrels per day

Gas-turbine automobiles will be on the market by
1959 or 1960 and by 1965 are expected to constitute some five
per cent of the vehic)

driven

Gas-Turbine Cars Coming





Because of their limited number, gas-turbine cars will
operate on gasoline or diesel fuel during the early years, for
dealers will be reluctant to establish service stations for

such a limited market.

petroleum products.

A boost in the average automotive horsepower - scheduled
to go from 200 to 240 between 1955 and 1956 will

growing petro-
field. "After all,’’
said Mr. Reeves, "oil can be used to cool a home as well as
to heat it.” Admitting that the oil industry had lost the
market to electricity by default, he said efforts were already
underway to get oil into the air conditioning field.

They anticipated a demand for higher-quality diesel fuel
through improvements in diesel power plants and an increas2
in the amount of oil going into industrial chemicals. Prior
to World War II, Mr. Reeves said, oil was the basic ingre-
dient in five per cent of the industrial chemicals produced.
Today that percentage, he said, has jumped to 90 while the
chemical industry has multiplied again and again.



Atomic Power To Help Oil

Atomatic power, they predicted, will not cut oil consump-
tion. In fact, Mr. Reeves said, it will probably increase it.

Atomic electric power will open up areas previously un-

developed and the population of those areas - with a rising
standard of living - will need the same oil products sold in
developed areas today.

Esso Research is already at work preparing for the years
ahead. For instance, they are developing processes aimed at
winning for Jersey affiliates a higher place than the 10th
position they hold today in chemical production

They are working on methods to improve catalytic re-
forming, spending each year close to the $11 million it cost
to develop the process originally. Similar amounts are going
into improvements of the fluid coking process, another Esso
Research discovery.

They are even working on fuels and furnaces designed for
central heating of homes in England and Europe where a
trend in that direction is now developing.

They are fighting "knock" and surface-ignition problems
cropping up in fuels designed for the higher-compression
ratio engines of tomorrow; studying gasoline requirements
of injection carburetors scheduled to appear on some sports
cars next year; creating new, synthetic lubricants to with-
stand the extreme temperature ranges of jet-plane oper-
ations.

And they are pioneering in the use of atomic energy with-
in petroleum research.

Industry Research Goes On

While working on product demands, Esso Research is not
ignoring producing, refining and transportation requirements
of the future. Repressuring in the producing fields, reform-
ing in the refineries, re-designing of ships and pipelines and
tank trucks and related facilities are all getting daily atten-
tion

Research of this type, Mr. Reeves said, can hold the key
to the future. He predicted that "the next 20 years will see
research continue to expand to the point where it will be four
times its present size. It will be the basis for a new economy,
providing all of us with a standard of living far superior to
what we enjoy today.”

pursue the unbeaten paths of the
Boca Fontein area. Hardly had he
entered a grove of trees and shrubs
but moment after making a
sharp sucking sound with his mouth,
Mr. Hermes’ Aruba

Lago Dis

| For CYI Capital Awards

Lago distributed Fls. 2200 ear-
lier this week to four employees
whose “coined” ideas were con-
sidered the best in _ practice
throughout 1955. LEarlier, they
had received a total of Fls. 850 as
initial awards.

The Capital Awards were made |

by the Coin Your Idea Committee
at a meeting in the General Office
Building Feb. 21. They went to J.



E. Peterson, A. A. G ter, F. Min-|
go and C. A. Gumbs

Mr. Peterson, an operator in Light
Oils Finishing, received the largest
amount Fis. 1000 - for a sugges-
tion that reduced tanker turnaround |
time.

In June, 1954, he proposed that
the No. 16 Crude Line and valves be
relocated. His suggestion was incor- |

porated into plan that extended
the crude line to the Nos. 1, 3 and 11
lines and improved crude discharge

a

pumping rates

It was the second time Mr. Peter-
son had taken down the top Class I
Capital Award. In 195 eived
Fis, 1000 for suggesting
provement in Lago’s crude line lay-



he
another im-



re

out
To be eligible for
a Capital Award,

consideration as
accepted id



must be in their second year of use. |

Fls. 600 - the second largest award - |
went to Mr. Slater, a job order clerk
in the Mechanical Department. He
proposed the purchase of a machine}
which would permit valves to be re-
paired without removal from where
they were installed. |

The third largest award - Fls. 400}
- was made to Mr. Mingo, an oper
tor in the Cracking Plant Division. |
He suggested that an installation be
made on recirculating gas oil reflux
pumps which saved oil and made
unit operation more convenient.





Mr. Gumbs retained his perfect
CYI record with the idea that won
him the fourth largest, Fls. 200, Ca-

pital Award. He suggested that oil
pressure lines be installed on wel-
ding machine engines to reduce
maintenance costs.

Mr
the Mechanical

Gumbs, a garage mechanic A

in Department, has

| turned in six suggestions and had all

six adopted.







Initial awards made in 1954 on
the ideas which won the 1 Capi-
tal Awards were: ;

Mr. Peterson, Fls. 200; Mr. Slater,
Fils. Mr. Mingo, Fls 5 and
Mr. Gumbs, Fils. 125.

Helps Europe Fight Record Winter

Lago Gives A Hand

Europe and England,
years, are getting
here for expres:



ravaged by the worst winter weather
a helping hand from Lago. Fuel oil is being loaded
shipment to Belgium, Germany,

in 100

Italy, and other coun-

tries for distribution throughout the Continent. Other tankers are
speeding toward England.

O } 3 a sea are 2ing di-

ae Blips at a i gees ‘a gium, Germany, Holland, Italy, Swe-
one: PON a Lg en Oe ae awl re atand Norway. They have carried
fulfill their original consignments. |

In the past three weeks more than
650 deaths in Europe and England
have been attributed to sub-freezing
temperatures, blizzards,
floods and other weather disasters. |
Damage estimates run into the bil-
lions dollars and the United
States has offered surplus foods to
help ease the possibility of famine
which threatens many rural areas.

The agricultural loss in Spain
alone is over $50,000,000. France is
estimated to have lost one-third of
its wheat crop.

New blizzards swept the Conti-|
nent and English Isles last Sunday. |
Italy, hard-hit already, was struck
again. Whole areas were isolated by |
snow or floods. Trains were trapped |

avalanches,

of

by 11-foot snow drifts. Falling tem- | es

peratures brought new hardship to
the already battered country.

Fuel oil shortages became so se-
vere that the Italian government
whose strict regulations had long
restricted the import of petroleum
products - relaxed the rules to per-
mit the delivery of heating oils to
relieve increasing hardships.

Ships now at sea are being diver-
ted to deliver at least 680,000 bar-
rels to Italy. Lago has guaranteed to
replace this production.

In the meantime, Lago ‘was busy
this week altering its operations to
take care of the unsual European
demand for heating oil. Crude runs
were increased by 10,000 barrels a
day and a balance in products was
struck by resuming the import of
vacuum gas oil as a feed stock for
the Cat Plant.

In the past two weeks at least 21
tankers have cleared San Nicolas
Harbor for ports in England, Bel-

close to 2,000,000 barrels of heating
oils and other vital petroleum pro-
ducts to the winter-wracked coun-
tries.

They simply felt they'd like to grow
beards. When the Cat Plant went
back on stream, they planned to



| shave them off.

Meanwhile, they became the butt
of many a bearded joke, wisecrack
and innuendo. They
not a whit. They had the satisfac-
tion of doing what they
do.

Mr. Medford has had considerable
experience with beards. "When my
grandfather died in St. Vincent at
the age of 92, they laid him away
with his beard on his chest,” he re-
called. He grew one himself several
years ago.

"It was early in 1945 and the war
was still on. One day I was walking
down the street when the police
spotted my beard and they put me
in jail for a spy. They kept me lock-
ed up all day untill my
came and identified me.”

He quickly shaved.

Speaking at the Aruba Golf Club}
Feb. 11, General Manager F. E. Grif-
fin praised the employees who eva-

J. Hinkson, chairman of the Esso
Heights Advisory Committee, said,
"During recent years the employee
representation system has_ been
challenged with failing efforts.”
Employees and representatives, he
said, should be "commended” for
meeting and defeating these chal-
lenges.

Harking back to an address he
made at the 1955 representatives’
party in which pointed out the com-
petition which faced Lago employ-







ees’ tem of independent repre-
sentation, Mr. Griffin said the en-
suing months "brought to light the

efforts that were being made to cast
aside and end the councils and com-
mittees present here tonight.”
He saluted the "majority
employees” who "carefully weighed
the factors at stake and rejected
other types of representation. The
many achievements of the LEC, SP-
AC and other committees during the
year is convincing proof that there
s looking out
and fighting

of our







for improvements.

But, he added, "you
fight ahead of you to retain and im-
prove this system which, fortunately



|
still have a}



for our employees, is available to
them at no monthly cost.”

Pointing out that the common
goal of all Lago representatives is)
the "furtherance of social, economi-
eal and cultural improvements of
our constituents. Hinkson |

— Min:





added that the men selected to strive
toward this goal were chosen through
democratic means.

"If democracy means anything to
us, then we ought to be reminded
above all else that tolerance plays
a major part in our success,” the
chairman said. The right to criticize
is inherent in democratic institu-
tions, he pointed out, and through
criticism "we as employee repre-
sentatives may realize our short-
comings at the conference table.”

Able representatives, he said,
must be willing to sacrifice "indivi-
dual aspiration for the good of our
constituents. During recent years
our employee representation system
has been challenged with failing ef-
forts. Representatives as well as
employees ought to be commended
in championing these challenges.”

In presenting a review of the year
past and a glimpse into Lago’s fu-

ture - a feature each year at these
parties - Mr. Griffin said the com-
pany operated at full throughput

in 1955, but market conditions forc-
ed undesirable operating changes.
Expenditures for the year totaled
close to Fls. 13,000,000, primarily to
improve operating and maintenance
efficienc harbor facilities plus
pipelines and tankage for jet fuels.
Expenditures for 1956 are expec-
ted to approximate Fls. 20,000,000,
he said. The money will be mainly
spent increased operating effi-
ciency plus facilities to meet con-
sumers’ demands for higher-quality
diesel oils; additional naptha and
distillate tankage; improvements to
AAR-2; additional crude handling
facilities and replacement of some

The company’s research activities, however,

as industrial hygiene, pipeline construction, tan-

Company Employs Thousands, Spends Millions



Esso Research has its headquarters in Elizabeth, N.J. and
laboratories in New Jersey, Texas, Canada, England and

France. It employs some 4000 persons and in 1955 operated
on a budget of more than $48 million.

The company receives no money from Jersey Standard;
its income is derived from contracts it negotiates with the
various Jersey affiliates. Its suc s is dependent upon the
use affiliates make of its services

In order to make Esso Research as useful as possible, Mr.
Reeves and C. O. Tongberg, a member of Esso Research’s
board of directors, are on a tour of Jersey affiliates in the
United States, South Ameri and Europe.

Mr. Reeves explained they planned to discuss the affili-
ates’ problems with company executives and to point out the
areas in which Esso Research can give them a hand. Discus-
sions of this type, he said, are needed to outline the studies
Esso Research will undertake.

These discussions, he said, are designed to help the affili-
ates maintain their competitive position within the industry
and to maintain the over-all Jersey organization's ability to
"move quickly” to meet a particular marketing situation.

During the trip, he said, they will also confer with automo-
tive, diesel, airplane and other manufacturers to determine
their anticipated needs for fuels, lubricants and other petro-
leum products.







Preview Of The Future

Mr. Reeves and Mr. Tongberg gave a preview of what
Esso Research feels will be part of the future for the oil



industry
Aviation, they said, will become an increasingly important
consumer as jet and turbo-prop planes takes over from pis-

ton-engine planes. Commercial piston-engine planes burn
between 13,000 and 30,000 barrels of fuel a year. Jets and

turbo-props, they said, burn up to 150,000 barrels each year
and by 1960 - according to present orders - there will be
over 500 planes of this type in commercial use

Worldwide commercial aviation gasoline consumption to-
day is about 300,000 barrels a day. By 1965, they said, Esso
Research expected the consumption to skyrocket to 1,000,000
barrels per day

Gas-turbine automobiles will be on the market by
1959 or 1960 and by 1965 are expected to constitute some five
per cent of the vehic)

Because of their limited number, gas-turbine cars will

A boost in the average automotive horsepower - scheduled

growing petro-
field. "After all,’’
said Mr. Reeves, "oil can be used to cool a home as well as
to heat it.” Admitting that the oil industry had lost the
market to electricity by default, he said efforts were already
underway to get oil into the air conditioning field.

They anticipated a demand for higher-quality diesel fuel
through improvements in diesel power plants and an increas2
in the amount of oil going into industrial chemicals. Prior
to World War II, Mr. Reeves said, oil was the basic ingre-
dient in five per cent of the industrial chemicals produced.
Today that percentage, he said, has jumped to 90 while the
chemical industry has multiplied again and again.



Atomic Power To Help Oil

Atomatic power, they predicted, will not cut oil consump-
tion. In fact, Mr. Reeves said, it will probably increase it.

Atomic electric power will open up areas previously un-

developed and the population of those areas - with a rising
standard of living - will need the same oil products sold in
developed areas today.

Esso Research is already at work preparing for the years
ahead. For instance, they are developing processes aimed at
winning for Jersey affiliates a higher place than the 10th
position they hold today in chemical production

They are working on methods to improve catalytic re-
forming, spending each year close to the $11 million it cost
to develop the process originally. Similar amounts are going
into improvements of the fluid coking process, another Esso
Research discovery.

They are even working on fuels and furnaces designed for
central heating of homes in England and Europe where a
trend in that direction is now developing.

They are fighting "knock" and surface-ignition problems
cropping up in fuels designed for the higher-compression
ratio engines of tomorrow; studying gasoline requirements
of injection carburetors scheduled to appear on some sports
cars next year; creating new, synthetic lubricants to with-
stand the extreme temperature ranges of jet-plane oper-
ations.

And they are pioneering in the use of atomic energy with-
in petroleum research.

Industry Research Goes On

While working on product demands, Esso Research is not
ignoring producing, refining and transportation requirements
of the future. Repressuring in the producing fields, reform-
ing in the refineries, re-designing of ships and pipelines and
tank trucks and related facilities are all getting daily atten-
tion

Research of this type, Mr. Reeves said, can hold the key
to the future. He predicted that "the next 20 years will see
research continue to expand to the point where it will be four
times its present size. It will be the basis for a new economy,
providing all of us with a standard of living far superior to
what we enjoy today.”

Bert Harwell in November and con-
tinued with Olin S. Pettingill last
month

To Mr. Hermes, the Trupial, Chu-
chubi, various types of humming-
bird and all other feathered crea-
tures of the island will not be new
friends. Rather, they will all make
up the reunion committee. They
first met in February, 1955, when

Mr. Hermes took time out from his
initial speaking engagement here to
pursue the unbeaten paths of the
Boca Fontein area. Hardly had he
entered a grove of trees and shrubs
but moment after making a
sharp sucking sound with his mouth,
Mr. Hermes’ Aruba



and a



acquaintances

had “upped” some dozen humming-
birds, a few Trupials and a low fly-
ing Chuchubi

On this trip Mr. Hermes plans to
present the story of life around the
shores of the world. His and
commentary on "Between the Tides”
treats the bird and life
found where the waters of the world

Gas Turbine Cars Coming
Because of their limited number gas turbine cars will
operate on gasoline or diesel fuel during the early years for
dealers will bo reluctant to establish service stations for
such a limited market But they will someday become a
significant consumer of petroleum products
A boost in the average automotive horsepower scheduled
to go from 200 to 240 between 1955 and 1956 alone will
create a demand for higher octane number gasoline Mr
Reeves said it is only a matter of time until some manufacturer
goes to 100 octane automotive fuel
The Esso Research executives foresaw a growing petro
leum market in the home air conditioning field After all
said Mr Reeves oil can be used to cool a home as well as
to heat it Admitting that the oil industry had lost the
market to electricity by default he said efforts were already
underway to get oil into the air conditioning field
