By Art Buchwalil WASHINGTON Less than a year ago everyone was hard at work vowing to conserve fuel. Americans had pledged themselves to finding new ways of saving energy and making the United States self-sufficient when it came to oil. In the interests of finding out what has been doing in the last 12 months, I did a personal "Where Are They research project. This is what I found. Carrutbers Ringold. chairman of the board of General Chrysford, the largest manufacturer of automobiles, is still in Detroit pushing the sales of large cars. Profits When he was reminded he promised last fall that General Chrysford would de- vote its efforts to the production of small cars that would not consume so much gaso- line, Ringold replied, "No one is going to tell us what kind of automobiles to make. The profits are in the large cars and that's what the public wants. When America wants small cars we'll make them. If it wasn't for the environmental nuts, there would be more than enough gasoline for everybody." Alan K.

Sure it didn't hurt last year to say we were worried about future fuel supplies and we were doing everything to see that America would never have to do without. Hut I'll tell you one thing, the campaign didn't sell a gallon of gas. "If anything, it scared people and they didn't care what brand of gasoline they bought. So we said the hell with it the company has to come first." Prof. Heinrich Applebaum, who last year predicted that shale oil would solve all our problems for the next Slid years, now has doubts about it. "That stuff is really Applo- baum said. "I mean oil out of a rock is some stupid way of getting fuel. Anyone who thinks we're going to solve mir ener- gy problems with shale oil in the near future is off his rocker.
