MAYOR SEEKS LIGHT
1 FUEL SHORTAGE
Oregon Delegation Asked to
Investigate Gasoline Case.
SAVING IS BEING MADE
Appeal to Conserve Supplies Has
Effect, While Rains Cut Down
Some of Demand.
Assurance that the gasoline con
servation programme is providing
sufficient gasoline to ship to upstate
points and also providing- a reserve
for use during the convention period,
two -weeks hence, was received yes
terday by Mayor Baker from repre
sentatives of the oil companies.
That Mayor Baker has dispatched
mcbsages to members of the Oregon
congressional delegation in an effort
to focus the light of a government
investigation on the coast gasoline
shortage became Known yesterday.
Mayor After Facts.
The mayor admitted that he had
telcsrrauhed to Senator McNary and
Representative McArthur to obtain
certain facts concerning the shortage.
"We face a serious shortage." he
said. "Certain rumors have been going
the rounds and the average citizen
is puzzled by these statements. I
am determined to obtain facts which
will aid us in learning the reason for
the shortage and . I believe that
' " throutrh official channels in Wash
ington such, information can be ob
tained." The general public is co-operating
almost to the man in conserving gaso
line at present, according to officials
- of the oil companies.
Ilalns Help Conserve.
The rains of Sunday and Monday,
together with the conservation, cut
down the gasoline sales to a greater
proportion than had been expected.
In addition word that three oargos of
gasoline would be furnished Oregon
by the Standard Oil company instead
or one during the next three weeks
also brought relief to those worrying
-for fear that industry and agriculture
would be halted because of shortage
of Ihe fluid.
The extra cargoes have been re
ceived through efforts made by J. E.
Balsley, district sales manager for
Oregon of the Standard company. Mr.
Balsley recently dispatched an earnest
plea for an extra consignment of
gasoline for Oregon to aid in reliev
ing the present condition and offi
cials of his company have heeded his

All kinds of cars are to be seen to
day along highways for miles around
Seattle. They are there as a result
of poor judgment on the part of their
drivers, who underestimated the mile
age per gallon of their cars. Many of
the drivers charge that their mileage
fell down on account of the mixture
of kerosene and gasoline which was
sold them for straight gasoline. Ga
rages along the principal highways
report an unusual business In towing
and storage, and late last night a
number of auto parties were to be
seen returning to the city afoot. Pub
