Tho drop was duo mainly to the shutdown of the East Texas field for the last 14 days of December. .

OIL company which licenses a service station operator to sell its products on property on which It has acquired n leasehold Interest, has a right to Insist that the products of no other company bo marketed from tho premises. Such was the keynote of a decision handed down recently by the Supreme Court of California In a suit brought by the Associated Oil Company. Tho decision Is regarded as of major Importance to tho oil industry Jn settling conclusively a point which has long proven a source of contention be- twpcn the major oil companies and operators of service stations on which an oil company holds a lease. Ruling Reversed Associated Oil Company originally filed suit for 'an Injunction against HarOld Myers and W. H. Myers, who after leasing a service station to the company and agreeing to purchase and deal exclusively In gasoline and oil products marketed by Associated, proceeded to market tho products of other companies. When the suit for Injunction was dismissed by the Superior Court, which ruled that such contracts conslttite Illegal restraints pf ;rade .and may not bo enforced by In- ur.ctlnn, tho plaintiff appealed to the Supremo Court, which reversed the ludgment In an opinion filed at San Francisco. Tho Court said, In part: "As we read tho contracts It cannot be seriously doubted that tho parties Ir tended that plaintiff should have a leasehold Interest In tho demised premises, nor can It be seriously questioned that the contracts were prepared and executed In tho form In which we find them with the Intent and for the express purpose of on- c.bllng the appellant to determine tho use to which the property should be put during the term of the lease. Fine Polnti of Law "It Is to be remembered that tho plaintiff did not seek to compel the respondents to remain on the property and sell Its products. It simply sought to restrain the sale of other products and the display of other advertising. "It requires no argument to demonstrate that appellant had the right to decline to sell any but Its own product upon the, leased property.

MeCONNELL AiMtlitid Prttt Flmntlil Ctflttr SALT LAKE CI1Y ' WINS Com MEDAL • (Associated Press Leaied Wire) NEW YORK, Feb. 8.—The American Institute of Mining and Metallurgical engineers announced today that the James Douglas medal for 1933 has been awarded to James Orr Elton, of Salt Lake City, Utah. The award, highest metallurgical honor In the United States, was made for "conspicuous work In the treatment of smelter fume and In the production of electrolytic zinc; for the development of successful methods for preferential flotation of lead-zlnc-sll- 'ver ores and oxidized lead-silver ores, and for Improvement In lead smelt- Tho medal Is presented annually for distinguished service In nonferrous 'metallurgy under the terms of an endowment In commemoration of the Tale Dr. James Douglas, a pioneer In the •development of copper metallurgy In Arizona. . Elton Is 54 years old and was bom in the state of Washington. He studied mining engineering nt Washington-State College and tho Unlver- ' slty of Idaho. He has been associated with the Anaconda Copper Mining Company for many years. 1 The medal will be presented at the . meeting of tho Institute on February 22. * » » -While a strong belief prevails In Wall street that tho J2,600,000,000 merger of Standard OIKCompany of New Jersey and Standard of California may be attempted this year, some oil men hold present negotiations will be held In abeyance until W. C. Teagle Is back on the Job. Teagle left his desk as chairman of the New Jersey company last summer, when he became head of the "share- the-work" program instituted by Industrial and other leaders. Officials of both companies have Indicated "no change" has taken place recently In merger negotiations. They have Implied, however, that the discussions have not been definitely sidetracked. Disparity between prices and yields In the Standard of California and New Jersey stocks has been mentioned as a possible factor In delaying a merger agreement. Standard of California shares have ranged between $26 and $23 a share In New York Stock Exchange so far this year, and at current prices, With an annual dividend rate of $2 a share, yield more than 8 per cent. Standard of New Jersey, which has sold as high as $31 a share this year, when on a dividend basis of $2 annually, has just reduced Its dividend to a $1 annual basis, which has brought tho stock down to around $26 a share, where on Its new dividend basis Its yield Is less than 4 per cent. Consolidation In 1931 of the Standard OllTjf New York and the Vacuum Oil companies, which later received court approval, has greatly strengthened belief In oil trado circles that the New Jersey and California consolidation might not meet with serious obstacles. Should such a merger be arranged, It would bring Into being a company having total assets of $2,509,740,201, based on latest published balance sheets of the companies. The Socony-Vacuum Corporation had total assets of $1,038,601,735, according to Its latest balance sheet. lit COLLECTOR IS TO BUYJPSURE Valued at $20,000,000; Ford or Rockefeller Mfty Be Purchaser (United Prcs» Leased Wire) FEIPINQ, China, Feb. 8.—Ancient treasure valued at $20,000,000, removed from tho forbjdden city of the Manchu emperors, Is destined for sale to n private American collector, a high diplomatic source said today.
