JONES Jumping Gun on River Barge Lines New Orleans, Dec. 15 —(/Pi— A Washington decision to restore Federal Barge Lines service on the Mississippi, Missouri and Illi nois rivers is "jumping the gun." says President C. S. Thompson of Amcrcan Waterways operators. Secretary of Commerce Sawyer said in Washington • yesterday that a brighter financial- picture made the restoration possible. Embar goes were placed on various scrv ices of the barge lines last July in an economy move. Thompson, in New Orleans to attend a session of his organiza tion for talks on inland waterways shipping, commented that the action was "a gesture" to pacify shippers and a surprise to barge men. He indicated the restoration pro s'urnbly would include partial load service to cities of the upper Mis issippi Valley and to Greenville, Miss., and Baton Rouge. Thompson declared federal was jumping the gun in restoring serv ice prior to an Interstate Commerce Commission hearing on federal's embargoes, which he said stirred up complaints from cities along the upper Mississippi. The federal line cannot restore full service on the upper Mississippi and Missouri until April, 1049, because of ice on streams, he added. While private operators feel fcd- ..ral provides a necessary service in carrying Jess than bargcload lots which private operators find unprofitable, Thompson said, the July decision to halt service was an 'effort to put itself in the same category as private carriers" because it had been losing money.

MAIN HOPE PHONE 747 New Device to Contact Oil Deposits Shrcvcport, La., Dec. 15 —(/P)— An invention to hunt oil by probing the earth with radio beams has been demonstrated by a Shrcvcport gcophysieist to a party of 23 scientists and air force and navy observers. William M. Barret of Shrcvc- port, who said he had worked on the idea for 15 years, staged the demonstration last Saturday 700 feet deep in a salt mine near Grand Saline, Texas. He said the device used radio waves to penetrate 1,200 feet into the earth to probe for inner secrets. Barret's radio transmitter is a low-powered device to pass waves into a revolutionary type of mechanism which directs waves into the earth with, he says, far greater effectiveness than previously possible. Obsrvcrs said Barret's accomplishment was "contrary to the widely accepted beliefs of what could be done." The demonstration actually illustrated only the first half of the invention's possibilities —firing waves on the surface and reception inside the earth. Barrett said in field use a receiver on the surface, some distance from the transmitter, would pick up the signals after they had returned to the top of the around.
