The movement la Hlgulflcaut In thnl It
l the first deflnltii responso of the into,

fuel problem Ih recognized by the manu
fucturers themselves iui 11 question In
vulvitis In some imnsuro tho future wcl
faro of tho Industry.
At a conferenco with the council of the
Society of Automobile Knglncers lioM
early last week In New York City, at
which President William 15. Mrtzgcr trd
General Manager Samuel A. Miles of the
National association were present, a plan
of action was sketched out by whclh the
Society of Automobile Engineers gets an
thorlty to arrango for whatever scientific
research tho needs of the Investigation
may disclose. Such matters as may be
of a purely commercial nature naturally
would fall more propctrly within the scope
of the normal activities of the assocli'lon
Definite announcement of the details of
the plan have not been made public, but
It Is stated that It will embrace both
fuels and curburetlng devices, Td' what
ever extent muy bo deemed necessary
the ground already cohered by the spe
cial fuel committee of the National as
sociation will bo gone over again In an
effort to determine exactly tho status of
the petroleum Industry, par ticularly with
reference to reserve supplies of petroleum
at present held under ground and tho
possibilities in the way of exploiting un
developed oil fields.
Hpeclal opportunity will be given to In
ventors and others who are Interested in
the development of new fuols an KUbstll-
tutea for gosollne to demonstrate not
only their applicability to automobile pro
pulsion, but also the extent to which
they can be produced and the probable
relatlvn cost. In this connection the In-
veitlgators will study fuels such as the
new motor spirit recently placed on the
market by the Standard Oil Company
of Indiana, which Is manufactured from
a residue formerly markoted at a low
price as fuel oil.
Coal tar, peat and even vegetable refuse
are poeslble sources of hydrocarbon com.
pounds that may be used as fuol that
are at present under Investigation by
various authorities, and several com
panies have recently undertaken the ex
ploitation of fuels declared to be suitable
as gasoline substitutes which nre not di
rectly dependent on the petroleum mar
ket, or which are entirely lndependfcnt of
It as the case may be. Those interested
in substitute products, as well as In new

with a view of determining what molli

with tho low grade gnsollnn that Is avail

work," said President Mctzgor of tho
National association, In speaking of tho
Investigation. "It Is for the benefit of
the public quite an much as the auto
mobile Industry Itself. They trill us that
wn are no.w getting fifty-eight gravity
gasoline, where, a few years ago we were
getting sixty-four and sixty-eight, and
that It will continue to go down until
within tho next five years we will be
getting ns low as fifty. Now that Is
something for which wn must bo pro
pared. It la not sufftclont to develop
our present product In such a way as
to take caro of these tow grude fuels,
but we must look after the user, Thero

today that will still bo In uso net year
and tho year after, and we must Hee
to It that they aro provided with some
sort of fuel to which they are adapted.

what Is more, it Is prepared to stand

approved, In addition to lending Its as-

"And most Important of all," he co
eluded, "Is the question of locating the
fuel supply of the future. It will not

on supplying 1,000.000 automobiles with

In Japan. Ho realizes that Japan U In
clined to view such legislation as a con

the United States and, while officially
unable to tnterfero In tho situation, he
expressed confidence that the California

that would prove acceptable to Japan,
