FRIDAY, JAN. 16, 1953 Congressmen Say Offshore Oil Order Will Be Overruled By JOE HAM. WASHINGTON Wi — President Truman's' imminent order selling aside offshore oil for Navy use will be quickly overturned by President-elect Eisenhower or by Congress, several die-led loday. congressmen pre- ,-^j The President announced yester- ffj'.day lie would Issue the hotly controversial order before he leaves office at noon Tuesday. It will turn the reserves over lo the Navy as a national defense move, he suld. "Outrageous"...'an Illegal power grab"..."personal spite" — Ihese were some of the terms used on Capilol Hill to describe Ihe action. Truman also found a few defenders, but they made clear they had IHlle hope his order would Commodity And Stock Markets— N«w York Gorton stand very long. Forty senators already have Iri- Iroduced a bill lo give to the Mir May July Oct states control of the lands under the marginal seas, containing billions of dollars worth of oil. Pres- identelect Eisenhower has said he favors doing so. His stand may have helped him carry Texas, which is one of Ihe stales primarily affected. The others are Louisiana and California. Democratic nominee Adlai Stevenson, like Truman, favored retention of the offshore lands by the federal government. Pissed Measure Last Year The Republican Senate lender- ship has given a high place on its program lo the bill lo give conlrol to ihe states. Top-ranking OOP senators said they were sure Truman's order would have little or no effect on the drive to speed passage. The Senate passed an Identical measure last year 50-35 and Hie House by an even bigger margin, Truman vetoed the hill wilh Ihe assertion that il would amount lo a 100-billion-barrel steal for oil companies — a contention he repeated at his news conference yesterday. --.„.. ...„, Advocates of federal control have 3275 3285 3255 3270) Insisted it would be easier for the Open High Low 1:15 3327 3358 3361 3335 3371 ..._ .... 3368 3350 3361 3305 3342 3357 H«w York Stocks -A T and T -! lAnier Tobacco ^^,v.nconda Copper .

Durkin as secretary of labor, without a word of protest from Sen. Taft (R-Ohio), who hnrt termed the selection "incredible." Tnft raised no objection of nny kind at n half-hour public hearing, held informally by the committee to clear the decks for Durkin's inauguration-day installation in office. .Taft himself smilingly gave reporters (he first word of Ihe unanimous approval. This approval came at * three- minute closed door meeting of the commlllee, called Immediately after the public session. Taft had denounced Durkin's appointment as Incredible when the selection was announced by President - elect Eisenhower. Durkin, who was heart of the AFL's plumbers union, Is a Democrat; he supported Gov. Adlai E. Stevenson against Eisenhower. However. Ihe Ohioan said later he would not oppose .confirmation of the new* labor secretary. Elsenhower wauls all of his cabinet choices approved by Ihe Senate in time lor them lo take their onths of office on Inauguration Day.

"Thai's right," Durkin replied. Taft said lie understood Durkin has already left the presidency of the AFL National Plumbers Union.

This Is a legacy Elsenhower won't welcome, e has promised 10 support legislation giving that 011 lo the stntes. The new. President can revoke Truman's order but there's bound lo be a fuss. The undersea oil question Is one of Hie hottest political potatoes around. Avoided Controversy Truman plainly went out of his way to avoid controversy In last night's radio-television appearance. He did, however, try by implication to spike Iwo of the Republicans' chief indictments of his administration: 1. He said his years In oftlce have produced "positive policies" —that the nation has acted with "speed and courage and decisiveness." as 11 did In Korea. "We have averted World War ni up to now." Truman said, "and we may already have succeeded in establishing conditions which'can keep that war from happening as far ahead as mim can see." This counters the GOP claim that the administration lias allowed tho nation lo drift close to a Hew world war. 2, He asserted that "real prosperity' has been brought to the great majority of the American people.
