Midwest Industrial Council

Discusses Gas Power

The regular quarterly session of the Midwest Industrial Gas Sales Council was held in Muncie, Ind., April 30. The meeting opened with a short address of welcome by H. Carl Wolf, newly elected president of the Indiana Gas Association. L. R. Foote, Central Illinois Public Service Co., Rockford, Ill., presided.

The principal speaker was F. T. Rainey, Ohio Fuel Gas Co., Columbus, Ohio, whose subject "Power Generation With Natural Gas" showed the progress his company is making in that field. Admitting that there were still problems to be solved, the consensus of opinion of those who attended was that there is a great future for gas in the cheap generation of electrical energy.

After a luncheon, the group toured plants of several Muncie industries which use natural gas for fuel. The itinerary included the Muneie plant of Owens-Illinois Glass Co., makers of the Insulux glass building blocks; Chevrolet-Muncie, manufacturers of automotive transmissions; Delco-Remy Corp. where all the batteries for General Motors cars are produced; Ball Bros. Manufacturing Co., glass jar concern; and Coca Cola Bottling Co.
