TULSA, May 19.—(A*—A bad smell, one quart of which could choke everyone in a city the size of Chicago. Is extracted from gasoline by a new process described today at the international petroleum exposition.
The smell is a highly concentrated garlic It is caused by the same forms of sulphur that grow in garlic. In oil wells there is a little of this sulphur it is sufficient to half the users of gasoline guarded against.
Fortunes have been made in the oil industry out of chemicals w hich ‘mask’' gasoline garlic These do not remove the j
and stifle if not
sulphur, but convert them into something which has no smell. • The new process for the first time takes the “garlic” completely out of gasoline It was described by Dr. C W. Ripple of the Allied Chemical and Dye Co.
The extraction, he said, shows there is about one quart of this smell in 1,000 barrels of gasoline. This is about the amount of gasoline that 3,000 cars would burn in less than a day’s run.
If anybody could use a terrific smell for war or defense, the gas could be trapped and liquefied.
