THE BAKEttSFlfeLD CAL1FORN1AN, THURSDAY, JANUARY 19, 1933 15 OIL and MINING KERN ML BATTLE Pan-American Settles With Government; Judgment Given Prior Right t-OS ANGELES, Jan. 10.—Settlement of the government judgment for $9,277,861.17 against the' Pan-American Petroleum Company, subsidiary of .the Richfield Oil Company, for |5,01G,- 000 was announced yesterday by Will- lahi C. McDuffle, receiver of tho Pan- American and Richfield companies. The compromise Is effective In the event of a sale of the reorganized Richfield properties and will rank as a" prior claim against Pan-American' assets. , ' ' Judgment for tho government was filed January 14, In the court of United States District Judge Jafties ns the result of litigation over an accounting for oil and gas extracted from three naval leases In the Elk Hills district. Restoration of the leases to tho goyernment was affirmed recently by tho United States Supremo Court. Compromise of tho government olalm against Pan-American was pronounced by McDuffle as a major step forward in the rehabilitation of the Richfield Oil Company. Virtually all litigation obstructing the sale of the properties Is now removed, he ey- plalned, since the settlement with tho gpvernment consolidates the claim of Pan-Amerclan against Richfield and . the claim of the government against Richfield. Participating In the protracted-conferences leading up to the compromise were H. J. Crawford and Frank Harrison of Cleveland, Ohio, special nssls- \ants to the United States attorney- general; th~e receiver for the Richfield nnd Pan-American companies, and representatives of the various creditors' committees. Consolidation of the Pan-American •lalm against Richfield us part of the tettlement will particularly facilitate the sale 1 ,of tho prbpcrtlcs, the receiver stated. The gross amount of this nlalm Is approximately $17,000,tlOO. Under the compromise agreement the amount Is converted Into a preferred claim against Richfield assets of »3,260.000.\ Speakers Entertain Those at Valley A. P. I.
