Six of States (Atsootatet Preit Leated $Hr«) WASHINGTON, Jan. 21.—Floating around the country somewhere la what was launched In 1924 as tho prospective Twentieth amendment to tho Constitution, but so far has become a lost chord in legislative annals. It la the child labor amendment, prohibiting those under 18 years of ago from holding jobs, and, unlike the lame-duck amendment now BO near ratification by the necessary 86 states, just didn't make progress. Approved In 1924 Approved by the House April 2«, 1924,-and'by the Senate June 2 of that year, the amendment was promptly submitted to the states by the state department. Its sponsors fondly hoped it would .follow the Eighteenth nnd Nineteenth amendments Into the Constitution, Initead, It was rejected officially by many states, not acted on by almost as many more, ratified by a handful and then apparently got lost At least, congressional clerks who keep up with such things say: "It's floating around somewhere, bu we cnn't tell where!" Inasmuch as it had no requirement that It be ratified by three-fourths o the states within a specified time, It still has a chance of being written into the basic law of the land. Hut to reach this goal many states would have to rescind their previous disapproval because moro than enough already have rejected the amendment to kill it off definitely. In contrast with the record of the tame-duck amendment—so called bo- cause It abolishes sessions of Congress In which defeated members can sit—which was submitted to the states last March, here Is the last check-up by Senate clerks on the status of tho cxilld labor amendment: California Ratifies Ratified by Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Montana and Wls- c nsln. Rejected' formally by Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, Vermont and Virginia. No action reported: Alabama, Illinois, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, New* Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, Washington, West Virginia and Wyoming. Oil Umpire, on Kern Visit Explains Huntington Beach Sudden Production Increase Pemberton, 111 With Influenza, in Stride Again I IIILE In Bakersfield on proratlon work, State Oil Umpire J. R. Pcm- borton yesterday explained the recent great increase in production at Hunt- ngton Beach—which resulted In such excessive overproduction that It has staggered an already overburdened market. Small operators who refused to abide by curtailment rules have forced larger operators of that district to open up wells to capacity in an effort to protect their lands from drainage, was the gist of his explanation. His statement, In part, follows: "While the overproduction of Huntington Beach is a serious fact tho causes of It are not so generally known. In order to clear up any mis. understandings by giving an accurate presentation of the facts," Umpire Pemberton Issued the following statement: \, "The production auota of the Huntington Beach field Is 19,000 barrels dally but since January 1 tho actual production of the Held has averaged about 26,000 barrels dally, an excess of 7000 barrels dally, or 37 per cent. The townslto area of the field is responsible for moro than 6600 barrels dally'of this excess, for on January 16 the production from the 111 townslte wells was 11,800 barrels, against an allotment of only 6350 barrels. The potential production of the area Is rated at 12,000 barrels dally, by tho umpire so that a virtual if unofficial, flow tost mfcy be said to bo'In progress. "In the towrtstto area four of tho larger companies have 68 wells while 20 smaller companies have 45 wells, For some months the production of the smaller companies has averaged about 2400 barrels dally, or their entire potential, against an allotment of loss than 1300 barrels dally. These 46 wells aro so 'Interspersed among the wells of the larger/companies that their continued overproduction Resulted in unequal drainage and Inadequate curtailment. • 'J, R. Pemberton, state oil umpire, was on his feet again today, after a attack of Influ- .enza. Here In connection with duties of his office, tha umpire was suddenly taken III, and his physician advised a rest. He recuperated at Hotel El Tejon. Today he was about his duties again.
