PAGE EIGHT BLTTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS 1ATURDAY, OCTOBER 39, MS4 California Oilmen Refuse Shutdown For 'Smog Test' LOS ANGELES (AP) — Southern California's oil industry, invited by Gov. Goodwin J. Knight to shut down operations temporarily for a smog test, has declined — with .some comment unrefined. West Leery i / •»•* O fReds ' Lovelace Kites . T ,, To Be Held jArms Talk Tomorrow at 2 "The solution in the smog prob Jem is not to be found in politics.' snapped Reese H. Taylor, Unioi Oil President. Knipht and Demo . crat Richard Graves are locked in the current campaign for j*overnoi snd smog lias suddenly eruptw into the hottest issue. Four other major companies anc an independent ftroup followed Union's lend and took dissenting stands. The governor awaited word from other operators of the area'. 1 25 refineries without great optimism. General Pet r o 1 e u m called % Knight's proposal "unsound" unti " "meaningless." Richfield said the move "would neither prove nor disprove" how the irritating pollutants set into the air on which Aneelenos have been gagging for 17 straiphi days. "ComplMrly Impractical" Standard Oil of California and Shell, like the other companies, sisied the industry has done all In its power to curb .smoke pollutant. 1 at their refineries. Shell alone offered to meet with the governor to discuss the proposal. The independent Refiners Assn.. attacked the request as ' D'cm plelely impractical from the industry standpoint" and urged Knight "to eliminate political considerations" from his views. Knight dropped the bombshell plan in the companies' laps yesterday. He asked for a voluntary closing of refineries "in the public Interest for such a period as will permit an adequate test of the amount of smog coming; from the manufacture of gasoline and other petroleum products in this county." His plea for immediate suspension was supplemented by n request that the 54.900 oil workers in the area be paid during; the shutdown. He maintained reserve slocks were adequate Ui provide for the region's needs. The companies and smog officials would decide how long the shutdown should last. Took Oilmen By Surprise The proposal took oilmen by surprise. Union was the first to reply. "Your request is most unreasonable, not based on facts and actually is not in the public interest." Taylor wired Knight. Taylor sold the amount of hydrocarbons emitted by refineries was small compared with the pollution from tuito- Negro Deaths mobile »nd turck ex!uu:->t>.
