power plants using Natural Gas for fuel So when you flip the switch that floods your room with light vou are using Natural Gas which is supplied by this system The motor which runs your vacuum cleaner your washing machine your electric razor uses energy that has been stored for countless centuries sands of feet below the surface of the southeastern corner of New Mexico GAS The variety of uses to which ural Gas is put in the southwest is so great as to even surprise us The list is far too long to run it ranges from the smallest sen Burner in the laboratory to huge reverbatory furnaces using millions of cubic feet of gas per day The electricity which runs the lights our streets pumps our water guides airplanes in to safe landings can all back to these selfsame gas fields Electricity has become such an gral our very lives that we scarcely think about it nor do we realize how completely dependent upon its power we actually are Without electricity anything like normal life in America would in- stantly cease Hence it is not hard to understand the vital importance of Natural Gas in our every day lives when we consider that Nature's Perfect Fuel fires the blazing of the boilers which make the steam to drive the generators which produce sible public servant The amount of electricity used in West Southern New Mexico and Southern Arizona in army camps and in industries vital to
