L ^ i d you ever have the misfortune on a steaming, sticky, sultr~y day to sit it out on a crowded parkway, bumper to bumper, waiting for traffic to clear? No doubt your thoughts were plenty sulphurous but probably not along the lines we have in mind. </p><p>We're thinking of the mineral Sulphur and its link with the automobile. Each car accounts for a substantial poundage of Sulphur, some estimates put it at around 25 pounds for the average car. Give or take 5 pounds, it shov/s thai a tremendous tonnage of Sulphur is needed each year top>ut cars, buses and trucks on the road ready to operate. And don't forget thetire and battery replacements going on every day. </p><p>Sulphur enters the automobile picture through the tires, steel sheets, plated and plastic fittings, glass, battery acid and parts, copper tubing and wiring . . . a l l of which call for the use of Sulphur or its compounds in connection with their manufacture. </p><p>Can you wonder that Sulphur goes into industry just about a s fast as the sulphur producers of the Gulf Coast Region can get it above ground and cooled preparatory to shipment? </p><p>T e x a s G u l l S u l p h u r @B t ^ J ^ 75 East 45th Street, New York 17, N.
