plode your shells and vaporize the
oil without flame so you can get
ensough over before it goes off.
Even to Figures
Now as to quantity. A barrel of
oil ought to be enough to film over a
space of 100 feet by 100 feet. That
doesn't seem a very big average for
one barrel, and possibly have some
left in the barrel to boot. But at that
rate one barrel to every 10,000 square
feet, 2,800 barrels would cover a
square mile. Most of this oil could
be found without shortening the
available supply on the market by
listing taxicabs, andtsport cars as
non-essentials and taking over the
fuel they burn, even if it is so with
gasoline. So far as quantity goes,
even if this dope is estimated 100 per
cent. short ofdthe amount needed, the
thing could be done. Oil artillery
preparations for an offensive would
cover a sector at least 30 miles wide
by 2 to 10 miles deep, or from 40
to 200 square miles.
