Airy, has had a full and rich his tory. The Forum became the official student government speaker pro curement agency iii 19-19.

The CPU became a discussion group exclusively after the For um's designation to btlng speak ers here by the student Legisla ture. It is currently .inactive. Speakers contacted to address the campus by the two agencies, whose files are among the most complete and valu&fcle of any similar organization artvwhere in the country, include such notable names as: Leon Trotsky, Sant Rayburn, George C. Marshall, Charles A. Lindbtirgh, John L. Lewis and John " Gunter.

Britain Plans To Produce Own Gasoline LONDON AIM A consnltin: .nginecr from Sheffield toni-h claimed the m;st sensational de velopment yet in Britain's battle to beat the gasoline shortage short age. He said he had found a way to produce his own. William Harthill, 47. said he al ready has been given permission by the Ministry of Fuel to go in to business of making synthetic motor fuel. He did not disclose his formula. "I expect to be able to supply about 30,000 gallons a week at first and later . greatly increase the figure," Harthin said. mere was not orricial comment from the Ministry of Fuel. The Ministry and other govern ment circles have, however, sought to encourage any and all efforts to lick the gasoline shortage ever since closing of the Suez Canal choked off much of Britain's nor mal supply from the Middle East. Harthill said his mixture looks and smells like gasoline and a Sheffield driving school already has put it to a test. It behaved just like ordinary, 85 octane gas oline, he claimed. Harthill offered only a few clues as to how his sjntho'ic gasoline Ls made The components, he said, are three liquids which are not in short supply.
