Z 3 -- P 2 S Z 5 INBtMNOINT.KIIl.TILIMlM End Tax Write-off on Tanker By HARRY WILSON 8HARPE WASHINGTON EW -- Tlw Kovernment has slammed the door on further tax concessions to builders of ocean-golne tank ers. Tho nation has enough tankers on hand or building to meet almost any emergency. The concession, In effect since the Korean War began, permit' ted a five-year write-off, for tax purposes, of tho cost of ships needed 1 to fill out the private and government tanker fleets, It was granted by the Office of Defense Mobilisation which now says President Elscnhow' er's lutcst expansion goal--100 vessels--Is filled. The only builder* who might be hurt are those who failed to CCt under tho wire \Uth appllca tlons before the surprise order wns Issued. Maritime Admlnl* tratlon officials hnd no estimate of the number but "assumed there were quite « few." THE NECESSITY ,of a 1 tanker fleet was demonstrated when Egypt blocked the Suez Canal and cut off Western Europe's vital Middle Eastern oil supplies. Only emergency action by U.S. oil men who pooled their tankers and supplied the oil saved Europe from disaster, A consequence of this was discussions between tho United States and Britain on a lonn range alternative to the canal, Including construction of supertankers and pipelines from the Middle East bypassing the waterway. Tho United States Already Is doing Its part. Since 1933 (cores of shipbuilders have taken advantage of tho tax concession to build or plan tankers ranging up to 60,000 tons capacity. But not all of them asked for the concession. Of the 100-veisel goal Ju«t filled, 43 tanken havn been built, are under construction or contracted for without federal tax relief. AS OF APRIL 1, the privately-owned tanker fleet totalled 336 vessels of which only 8 were Inactive. On the same date 93 tankers were under contract for construction or conversion, Including 3 for tho government, and 22 for foreign flags, Elsenhower had requested an NPC study to see 'where the United States and thc-frw world stood In event of a war ftnergenecy. The oouncll estimated that by 1963, and allowing for natural attrition, the free world fleet should total 4,346 tankers, an Increase of 82 per cent over Jan, 1. 1937. These Include 25 to 50 supertankers of 60.000 tons capacity. Timely Tips Br tlalM PraH When Ironlnn. protect zippers and placket fabrics by laying a pressing cloth on · them. Iron cently.
