New York, Dec. 17. Records for
eleven months of the psychopathic de
partment at Bellevue Hospital, clear
ing house for the city's chronic alco
holics and drug addicts, indicatae that,
while there has been an appreciable
decrease ir the number of patients
since the enforcement of wartime
prohibition, there has been a marked
increase in cases of delirium tremens
and a larger number of resultant
deaths. - '
According to Dr. M. S. Gregory, Di.
rector of the department, this condi
tion has been brought about by the
fact that chronic alcoholics of small
means, finding their supplies of good
liquor shut off, have drunk deleterious
"For years," said Dr. Gregory,
"there have been admitted to Belle
vue, at each week end, men suffering
from alcoholism. They are known at
the hospital a 'repeatersj In a ma
jority of cases would be unwise not
to admit them, so they have been
cared for. I should say cases of this
sort, in past years, averaged 2,000
" per annum."
"Most of these 'repeaters' were con
sidered deteriorated, hopeless drunk
ards, men for whom all our best ef
forts had been vain. They were cared
for, went away and always returned.
In the last five months, since so-
called wartime prohibition has been
in effect, there has been a decrease in
the number of these cases, but many
of those who come to us now are in
a condition more serious and more
dangerous than of old.
"Although we have prohibition
these people can get whiskey or adul.
terated alcohol, and they drink these
concoctions in every conceivable form
cologne,' perfume, . hair dye, bay
rum, varnish and patent medicines.
The delirium resulting from indul
gence in these mixtures is more seri
ous than that which follows an over
indulgence in whiskey.
' "The result has been that abnormal
drinkers return, to us in many in
stances as insane patients. In cases
of delirium tremens, the delirium is
dangerous, and a great many of the

Advance in the Price of Gasoline
The Price of Red Crown Gasoline will be Advanced ty2 cents per
gallon on Wednesday, December 19, 1919.
THIS advance fc dueto tie fact that ik Oregon date law specifies that gasoline shall be of 56

1 V? increase in the cost of the
The i advance of 1 cents per gallon in the price does not fully represent the additional cost to us of
manufacturing the special gasoline. At the same time, the higher price of the special gasoline does not
secure for Hie user any greater valae than is given in onr
The 56 degree gravity gasoline that we must specially refine and furnish in Oregon is a less effi
cient gastime than that regularly produced by this company and sold in Washington, CaEforcia and else
where. Our regular gasoline comes within the United States government standard spoliations. It is
refined to a set specification of a chain of boiling points dctenssed by csr experts as being that which
wi give the maximum of power and mileage consisted with &e regard to gascEne conservation ad the
maintenance of reasonable prices to the consumer.
Gravity a False Test of Gasoline
Gasoline is regularly refined by us with, re
gard to its range of boiling pointsthe only true
measure of gasoline value. The Oregon state
law establishes a gravity standard for gasoline,
which is not indicative of gasoline quality. That
"the gravity test is of little or no value in deter
mining the quality of gasoline" was stated by
the United States Government's committee on
Standardization of Petroleum specifications in
its report to the Government. Later the United
States Government adopted standards for gaso
line based on boiling points.
Boiling Points are the only True
Measure of Gasoline Value
Boiling points determine the vaporizing and
combustive, or power, qualities of gasoline. They
are the only true measure of gasoline value. The
gravity test simply compares the density of the
liquid gasoline with the density of water at sea
ievel. It can tell nothing cbout the vaporizing
and combustive, or power, values of gasoline.
Only the range of boiling points can do that.
The United States Government
Standard Specifications for
The United States Government standard
specifications for gasoline are are based on boil
ing points not gravity. Drafted as they were
by impartial government experts, they are gen-
erally considered, in the light of conditions to
day, as the most practical standard for gasoline.
They insure an efficient and satisfactory gaso
line and at the same time have due regard for
the best utilization of our petroleum resources,
and the maintenance of reasonable prices to the
The Gasoline Problem
The demand for gasoline is increasing faster
than the supply. To hold down the increasing
disproportion between the demand end the sup
ply, it is important that every possible drop of
gasoline be extracted from the crude oil refined.
At the same time the producers must continue
their constant search for new sources of crude
oil supply, and the automotive engineers must
continue their efforts to get more power and
mileage out of the gasoline consumed.
The Oregon State Law Defeats
The Oregon state law, by specifying a gravity
standard for gasoline, limits the possible extrac
tion of gasoline from the crude oil and thus
operates directly against gasoline conservation,
making le?-p!entiful and more costly the supply.
