6 Sciences meet at SINCLAIR Geoph!sical exploration for oil extends even into the water. Here geopljsicists are doing preliminary work with a gravity meter in the Gulf of Mexico. No one man-no one science-can answer the questions Sinclair asks of its research and technical staff. It takes the cooperative effort of hundreds of men applying their knowledge of 64 specific sciences. There are two ever-present questions: Where is oil to be found? How can Sinclair improve the products of oil? Teams of Sinclair geophysicists and ge ologists are currently probing a good part of the world's surface in their search for an answer to the first question. And the second requires the full-time attention of more than 200 chemists, physicists, mathematicians, SINCLAIR A Great Name in Oil engineers and other specialists in the 38 acre Sinclair Research Laboratories at Har vey, Illinois. Actually, there are 19 different kinds of scientific degrees held by the research and technical men of Sinclair-ranging all the way from metallurgy to entomology. This combination of sciences-all con centrated on the problems of petroleum has helped make Sinclair "A Great Name in Oil." SINCLAIR OIL CO P RPORATI 0N 630 Fifth Avenue - NewYork 20, N.Y.
