that the "to'al waste iii the oil and
gas fields of the nation amounted to
$2,000,000,000 In 1017."
Oil men admit a mammoth wste
of these national resources. With
customary American energy and
brains it seems entirely logical to
presume that fuel worth so mucn will
be conserved and utilized.
A review of the situation seetin t-
