'Ihe spokesman said a "great, deal" of the present natural gas shortage in .some consuming areas cou'.ii be traced directly to "long drawn-out hearings" required by the Commission before It will okay new gus transmission facilities. The statement was made before the House Interstate Commerce Committee by Edwavcl Buddms, president of ' Panhandle Eastern Pipeline Co. He testified in favor of legislation to curtail f'PO's authority over natural gas. "'Public inleicst as affected by the production, Brails?ortaotion and use of natural yas," he .said, "is at the present time being seriously jeopardized for lhc long pull by the administration of the Natu.-aJ Gas Act." iBuddius was one ot a feries ot industry :pjkesmen testifying in behalf of H bill sponsored by RcP nos s Rz'.cy.

Dollh-cr's bill is aimed at conserving the nation's natural gas rescues. To that end it would permit tlie commission U say for what purposes natural ga; may be used. Dollivcr's, bill generally has the f sup-port of the railroads and ihe j^coal mining industry. ™ Bucldrus said (lie natural gas industry had learned "from bitter expcrienca" that the PPC probably will use its present undefined authority over natural gas to increase rather than restrict its jurisdiction. "The natural gas industry," he said, "is asking for changes in the natural gas act which will allow it to grow and expand in a normal healthy, competitive manner. We are, in effect, asking (for)' a fair and reasonable price..." BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COUKIER NEWS Breath-Making Reported Last Week Total 15 UTn,E ROCK, Ark.. April 17.

Dogs Run Rampant, Bite 14 in State Last l/.S. to Seize 700 German Factories as Reparations BERLIN, April 17. (UP)— Gen. Lucius D. Clay. American commander in Europe, announced yes- ter'day that 100 war plants in Western Germany would be seized as reparaions. Clay said 36 factories had been removed from the reparations: list, 18. of which were in the American Zone. One of th c reasons for dropping the 36" plants from' the reparations list, he said, was the need j-Jor cement in Germany. E0| Fcmr-!iO\vcr teams have evaluated 254 of the American Zone, pluats scheduled for removal at about SI00,000,000, based on the pre-war rote of exchange. Clay said. Some of the plants originally earmarked for repajaions were dropped because of duplications and the fact that investigation indicated they would be of little value.
