Figure 5 is a form of report used by the foreman of the gas en-
gine repair crew of one of the Mid-Continent oil companies. He
fills it out after repairs are made at each of the gas engines used for
pumping oil wells. The gas engines are inspected at regular in-
tervals as well as when a breakdown gives trouble. The reports,
filed in the office, are a reliable record of the operation of each
engine as well as of the relative merits of different methods of
water circulation, ignition, and lubrication.
