Hesellon (H-Mass) said this week he doubted (he bill: would survive. He expressed belief that if the Senate passes' the measure in any form, it will -be with amendments.

The Senate Commerce Com'mil- leo approved similar*legislation by Sen. Fulbright ,D-Ark) and it' is now ready for Senate action. 1 ; Hesellon, who opposes the legislation is "one of the rarest giveaways that has .come down -the pike in the last 10 years," -said in an- Interview that supporters undoubtedly would try to get it through the'Scnale without .change t o ' a v e r t the necessity of its return to the. House. -But he expressed doubt they could d o - t h a t . On the other side of the question, Raybuii-i ^. Foster, vice president and general counsel -Ol Phillips Petroleum Co., said this week that federal regulation of natural , gas . producers ' is -not in the consumer's interest. . A group of gas distributing 'company executives h»s formed a council of local gas companies to fight the legislation. John Hcyke, president of Brooklyn Union ; Gas, Co., chairman of the council, said n a statement:. . : · · . "By coordinating tht efforts of local gas companies, the-council intends, to inform the public thai passage of the Harris-Fulbrighl bill, which would relieve natural gas producers from effective government regulation, is' contrary to public interest." · He contended the bill.wo.uld de liver to oil and gas interests "huge windfall profits »t the 'expense o consumers »nd their locll iup pliers.". .. · Jn a letter to members of the Independent Petroleum; Assn. of America .late this · week,' : Russell B.

He »aid he had- received r«: ports that, in addition to. the gat distributing company group, heads of Z63 city, governments now ^are working together under Ibe leadership o£ Mayor Joseph- £. CJsr!c;Of Philadelphia to defeat the Harm- Fulbright bill. . Brown's letter continued: . "When these groups are added o those already outspoken against lis legislation such as labor or- anizatinns and ' governors nd ther officials of some of the con-, uniing stales, it becomes apparent lat the problem of obtaining emedial' legislation' during t'iie oming session of Con E ress is a eal one and will requirf. the full attention «nd efforts o f ' a l l those nterested in this issue and the preservation of the basic principles of our system of government. Brown said the opposition of some groups "stems from a philosophy that the federal government can do a better job in regulating local producing activities than can our long-established system of competitive enterprise "Others, such as the distributing companies, apparently base their opposition on the expectation that (cderal regulation of gas producers will result in reducing .the price that they themselves agreed to in contracts which id the time -they were anxious. to' make so is to obtain a gas supply." Meanwhile, the Pureau of Mines reported that natdral gas was used in « states and the District of Columbia In 195, Nevada receiving it for tht first lime that year. .
