R ESTORATION of legal rights to all producers, royalty owners and pur-.- chasers through the legal production and marketing of oil, can bo accomplished quickly-by changing the old method of inequitable taking of oil from each well to tho equitable method of selling oil from the field. 'Such -vva3 the statement made by Marvin Lee, consulting geologist and executive vice-president of tho Inde- pfendent Petroleum Association of America, Continuing his discussion, he said: "Since common rights of landowners and producers are given legal recognition in common source of supply, why not make these rights obtainable by permitting them to share their Bales dally, fairly, and equitably? To stop tho theft of oil and to insure selling oil requires that ratable taking must also mean ratable marketing. Admit Equity "Nearly all oil men admit tho equity of producers to share the reservoir energy of un oil field and to recover their share of the oil under their leases. "Legislatures and courts have made attempts to correct Injustice In cases where the opinions of men differ as to property rights. The theory of ratable taking is good, but legislation to effectuate It has been Influenced by every political influence usable by men for selfish reasons. It has not had a fair trial. "Tho administration of the laws on ratable taking has also been Influenced by selfish actions ns well as being affected by old oil field traditions and practices The vicious misuse of somo pipelines to run oil illegally produced is too well-known to need comment. • Dividends Squandered "With prices below the point of profit, alleged to be caused by the Illegal production of crude oil and Its refined products, nothing effective has been done In two years to stop this. Instead of meeting conditions squarely, heads of largo companies rush nbout frantically from state to state with high-priced attorneys, consulting commissions, legislators, and other officials in nr» effort to do something that does not work for the good of the Industry or public welfare. Dividends aro being: squandered In setting up political departments, in taking temporury advantage of conditions that react to greater destruction of goodwill and future profits of anxious i stockholders. ! "The evils -of illegal production of! oil are too well known to require dis- \ cusslon—the remedy is a return to ; common business honesty. The prevention of Illegal production of oil only requires tho co-operation of purchasing companies and the present regulatory bodies In authority In the oil states through the adoption of ratable marketing." TO CONFER. FRIDAY (Continued From Pope One) war debts, disarmament and the far eastern policy. Favors Disarmament Secretary Stimson -was said to have found Roosevelt a hearty supporter of disarmament and prepared to continue 'American efforts at Geneva to cut down the world's armies and navies. He Is expected to adhere to the thesis of progressive, multilateral disarmament, having regard, however, to maintenance of the U. S. navy on the 6-6-8 ratio. • The president-elect's public statement Indicated what ho already had told Stimson—that he. was prepared to follow the Hoover administration's policy on the Far East. This policy is based on maintaining the "open door" doctrine In China, respect for the Kellogg pact and nine-power treaty, and nonrecognlllon of territorial gains made In defiance of the treaties, Knowledge of Uoosc vel t's support was behind SUnison's roassortion of the "nonrecognltlon" doctrine In messages to America/, envoys In London, Paris and Geneva. New Issue Possible * i Meanwhile, It became known that while the administration plans to nay nothing to Japan about the campaign In Jehol, any troop movement south of the Great Wnll will raise a now Issue. The United States might then be expected to consult with the other powers regarding proper measures to protect their nationals In the Pelplng- Tlentsln area and to uphold the nine- power pact guaranteeing China's sovereignty. Now force has been given the Far Eastern policy by Roosevelt's public assurances of support. Secretary SUin- eon read his statement with keen interest. Stimson has made It clear to the European envoys in Washington that there Is every reason to believe that the Democratic administration will follow the policy In the Far East laid down hero last winter. Differ on Debt Policy On war debts alone did Roosevelt differ from the policies now being followed by the state department. The Democratic president-elect Is opposed to the Hoover plan to establish a debt- funding commission. He was said to believe that the troublesome debt problem can be settled more satisfactorily by direct negotiations between the state department and the various debtor governments.

One of Houdini's most spectacular escape feats was performed with a huge milk can filled with water. He invited persons of the audience to bring padlocks and lock him into the can. He got into the can, the lid was put on and fastened with several padlocks. A screen was placed in front of the can. Assistants stood by with stop watches and fire axes to save him from drowning after a certain time. About a minute later, the screen was removed, Houdini was seen panting and dripping ... the padlocks remaining intact 1 •XPLANATIONi The usual method of escaping from a milk can is ' as follows: The lid of the can is apparently securely padlocked to the lower portion, but actually the metal baud to which the staples are attached is the top of a short inner lining. The performer, after being locked into the can, pushes the lid upward with his head and the short inner lining is forced out of place, permitting his escape. The screen is then removed. TO-££ ..
