T HE greatest lesson taught by business conditions in 1932 Is for every man to do his Job In the best manner within his capacity. Such was the keynote of a short talk delivered by B. I. Graves; general alesmanager for the Associated OH Company, at the organization's annual newspaper men's luncheon yesterday at the Mark Hopkins hotel. Addressing a large group of newspaper writers and representatives assembled from the bay region and various sections of the Pacific Coast, Graves announced that Associated during 1932 enjoyed an Increase In gasoline sales of 10 per cent" over gal- lonage of 1981. He paid high tribute to newspaper advertising as the backbone of the three-quarter-million-dollar advertising campaign used by the company during 1932, and declared -that upon the effectiveness of this advertising and the Associated policy of offering the highest grade ' of products at the right price the successful showing of the year depended. "Associated is gaping Into tho new year with heads up and the slogan, 'Smile With Me in '33'," he declared. 'It has established budgets calling for an expenditure of $6,000,000 for Im- provemerits and additions In each of Its divisions. Of this, $1,000,000 will bo spent on plant expansion alone, work having already been started on a new cracking plant at the Avon refinery in tho San Francisco bay region, which will embody all of tho latest equipment for manufacture of the finest gasoline. "Advertising in 1933 will be con. ducted on the same scale as,last year, 9750,000 having been budgeted|(or this Item, and newspapers again will carry the major part of the advertising message to the public." Graves pointed out also that purchase of automotive equipment to replace obsolete units has been continued without Interruption, and that plans for 1933 call for a continuance of tho policy of keeping the huge car and truck fleet up to date. He also drew attention to tho fact that as a direct result of tho five-day maximum working week adopted by Associated In November, over 260 men have been added to tho pay roll. Harold R. Deal, advertising manager for Associated, acted as master of ceremonies. Entertainment was provided by Johnny Hnnip and a group of artists, and Benny Walker of the Associated spotlight radio cast.

I., Jan. 16.—A diamond hunt for several thousand tiny stones scattered along tho ro«dslde 20 miles from Manila was Intensified today following tho recovery of more than 3000. The diamonds were tossed aside January 2 by Emmanuel Strauss, member of a Manila Jewelry firm, who wus charged with a shortage of $67,000. Police said the Jeweler confessed ho threw away tho stones while planning to commit suicide, then weakened and returned with a tale of being kidnaped and robbed. Police and Jewelers picked up 183 stones Tuesday, 2085 the following day and 729 Thursday. Two truckloads of soil were brought Into the city for closer examination today. Most of tho stones were mere chips with tho largest valued at $50. (United Press Leased Wire) LOS ANGELES, Jan. 16.—William A. Stephens, local oil company engineer, was unharmed today despite his Imprisonment by kidnapers who abducted him from the main entrance of the Los Angeles automobile show, believing he was someone else. Stephens was released last night after being held prisoner in a lonely cabin In Ventura county from Saturday afternoon until yesterday. Murks on his wrists showed where lie had been trussed. Stephens said two men forced him at pistol point through the crowds a,t the automobile show to a waiting automobile. Ho was compelled to drive out Roosevelt highway. Halting, his abductors blindfolded him and then drove to tho cabin where a companion awaited them. "You've got the wrong man," he remarked curtly, according to Stephens, who said they kept his hands and feet tied, however, until they drove him back to the auto show grounds yesterday. He said they made no attempt to rob him of $100 he carried. A PIIOPOSAI., to create a joint committee mado up of representatives from various groups In the oil Indun- try to study ways and means of assisting civic bodies throughout California to bring about a reduction of local government costs Is contained In an article, "Overtaxation tho Millstone of the Oil Industry," by Edwin Hlgglns, managing director and secretary of tho Callforulu Oil and Lias Association, in tho January Issue of Petroleum World, off the press today. Oil leaders believe that tho effect of u tnx-reductlon campaign so generated would bo felt beyond^the limits of their own Industry and that It might start a broad-gauge campaign for tax reduction In which 'all Industry could Join. According to Hlgglns, time was when oil men uttered no particular complaint when they were asked »> boar more than their share of tho tax burden. Those were tho days when more oil companies were using blank ink. Today many operators are making an unwelcome acquaintance with tho bankruptcy courts, still more arc buying red ink In bulk, and too few are milking anything like H reasonable profit. Tho result Is that they nro wondering how they can carry on In the face of tho continuing tendency of local governments to Increase operating costs and send them the bill for it. They wonder why public opinion has not forced city and county officials to follow tho dictates of sound business principles anil retrench, an they themselves have had to, during this period of depression. He goes on: • Co-Operation Essential "Everyone knows that an effective army is not made up of a lot of smart soldiers, all flrlnft at odd times and In different directions. Co-oporatlon, unity of action, are chief essentials of successful endeavor. Of course that applies to the oil Industry, and never has there been a time when tho spirit and will to pull together were more sorely needed. All that Is lacking to MEN!—A VALUE SENSATION! about this happy condition Is for n few, who have found It difficult to forgot grievances now past, to uvor- look what has gono before, step Inlo lino, and permit tho oil Industry to present a solid front iigainst unnocc.*- sary taxation. That, la the only way to stein tho tide." After consideration of tho various aspects of the prpsonl lax condition, nnd after summarizing tho Importance of tho oil Industry In tho financial structure of California, Mlgglns makoH tho following concrete miggefltlmiM: (1) Tho appointment of n committee to bo mado up of two ihombors from the Independent Petroleum Association, two from the Oil Producers .Sales Agency, and two from tho California Oil and Has Aasoclntlon, these members to bo named by tho respective aHSoclatlons. If these appointees should deem it: desirable, they might add two or three members at. large u> Insure that tho committee would bo fully representative of the oil Industry. (2) That this committee ctudy ways and moans of assisting civic bodies throughout tho slate In their efforts to bring a reduction of locnl government, and In preventing tho initiation of any now projects nut essential to tho welfare or safety of our pooplc. (I!) That this committee .study ways and moans of acquainting local government officials wllh the n.t- tltudo of tho oil Industry. Solution According to .lligglns, such a committee, properly constituted and backed solidly by the oil Industry, could ho of Inestimable value In this "oil-tax crisis." More than that, It. could become a vital factor In speeding the return of prosperity to all Industry. Ho points out that tho nil- Important problem Is how to reduce tho cost of local government, and concludes that this problem can surely be solved If attacked aggressively—and when It Is solved not only the oil Industry, but all tho people of California, will BOO better times.
