J. Trumble in making water-white gasoline from Oil shale in one operation, the recognition of oil shale at the London Exposition, the oil shale conference at Sacramento together with the working exhibit of the Colorado School of Mines, and the increasing world-wide interest in the subject, notably in England, Sweden, Estonia, South Africa, Australia and Tasmania.
