The high court Has a complaint In which the Federal government, is suing th'e State or California in «n effort to tak e title to rich oil fields in offshore limds along the Pacific coast. The suit Is the same litigation which fjgnred prominently in the Senate debajc over the naming of Edwin w. Pauley, influential Qill- fornla oil man, to be Undersecretary of Navy. Sided With Slates Pauley's name came up In connection with the suit as an opponent lo Federal claims to the oil- bearing lands. Pauley at one time at least sided with state officials' claims tti»t the Supreme court In 52 decisions had held that...submerged coastal lands belong to the states.

Ickes, who resigned in the fight over Pauley, charged that state leasing of offshore lands to large oil companies such as Petrol Oil Corp., operated by Pauley, was helping lo sap one of Ihe bis sources of petroleum left to the nation. He added that Federal courts have not decided who owns submerged coastal lands, but that previous decisions dealt with lands under' Inland lakes, rivers, bays and harbors, harbors. V. S. Dropped SUle Suit A test suit was instituted by Ihe government on May 29, last year, In Ihe U. ,S. District Court at Los Angeles, against the Pacific Western Oil Co., a lessee of the Stale of California. After a huddle among, California officials and Justice and Interior Department heads, the suit iu California was dropped on Oct. 19 and- the government filed Its complaint directly with the Supreme Court. The government is not claiming title to all the so-called tidelands, but is seeking to establish ownership to submerged lands from the low-water mark to the three-mile limit. There is no question that the Supreme Court has authority lo rule in v the case. It has jurisdiction over disputes between the Federal government and a state, or between states. shelf are believed lo conlaln many more billions of BBllons. Tlie Interior Department, In a postwar survey, placed Ihe cost of the war In essential materials such as oil and coal lit., S3G.OOO.OOO.ODO. The department said that at present rates of consumption domestic oil dcpo'ills will hold out from 14 lo 20 years. Recently, Ickes, calling submerged consinl lands the graitest of all potential oil reserves, said It would be "far better for Ihe nation" If llicy were brought under Federal control and held as an oil reserve. In way of reply, Attorney Cicn- |Cral Robert W. Kenny of California, heading representatives of •some 20 slates, declared that oil conservation was not involved in Lhe suit before the Supreme Court. "The essence of this controversy," he said. "Is whether the United States government shall keep failh with Ihe states and their citizens. If conservation Is needed, It can and should l>c accomplished without confiscation."

FRIDAY, MARCH 8, 1940 Many Germans Face Starvation Thousands In British Occupation Zone Must Draw Belts Tighter BERLIN, March 1. (UP)—Lt. Gen. iir Brian Ro'bcrtson, deputy British military governor, admitted to- t day that 10,000,000 Germans or' about half th e non-fanning population in the British wjne, were on I near starvation rations now and warned of widespread starvation threats in the next three months. Robertson told a press conference lhat British occupation -authorities liad been advised they could expect no food imiwrts for the German population between the end of March and Ihe end of June. "April, May and June will be critical months," Robertson said. "Something must be done." When a correspondent asked if three months was enough time lo produce widespread starvation, Kob- erlson answered: "Yes. In ccrlain areas." The British drastically slashed ail rations lust Monday, reducing' normal consumers to 1,014 calories a day. Robertson admitted there was little prospect for immediate Imports and said a further ration cut was a "distinct possibility." Robertson, laying the German food plight before the world, said the problem would not be solved this year and predicted lhat the "battle of the winter of 194fi-47" may be even grimmer than this year. He asked that Ihe situation be viewed from a practical rather than a sentimental standpoint. "One can not reform the hearts of the German people unless they keep their stomachs reasonably full," Robertson said. "A famished Germany would be ready prey for influences which are ever ready to pounce on the discontented. "The Germans brought this on themselves but it is no part cf the British or Allied policy to starve Germany." Seeks Vice Probe Give Farming Brush-Up MOSCOW, Ida.
