TO Trouble which the Associated Oil Company has experienced tn the cementing of tho sur/aoe casing In Its Williamson No. 1 well nt Lost Hills may be due to the presence of a high water pressure zone which was not expected until a greater depth.

COFFEE IS BACK NEW YORK 1 Institute Issues Another Oil Curtailment Summons (Associated Preni Leased Wire) N I EW YORK, Feb. 9,—Directors of the American Petroleum Institute, lodny adopted a set of principles call- Ing on oil-producing states to limit the production of crude oil "to the reasonable requirements of the market." 'In a broad and general sense," said C. B. Ames, president of the Institute, In a statement prepared ,for publication, "the measure of market demand Is the consumption of refined products. Current production should not exceed this demand and should make some allowance for withdrawals from storage, which is now excessive, Outline Plan "Producing capacity being already far In excess of consuming requirements, there Is no public Interest in developing new pools, and, therefore, production from new pools should be restricted to the utmost limit by the laws of the states. "Both In the Interest of conservation and the prevention of waste the production of stripper wells should be the last restricted. "The production for each state should bo prorated ns between pools on it fnlr basis, nnd the production of each pool should be prorated between the prop' erty of producers on a fair and equitable basis. "In order for this program to succeed It Is absolutely necesaary that lawful orders of the state -commissions be rigidly enforced and every person engaged In the Industry should assist the commissions In enforcing such orders, and should avoid nny and all acts which would directly or Indirectly circumvent or tend to defeat such orders. Taxes Heavy ' "In addition to this, the Important subject of the gasoline tax nsd gasoline tax evasion cannot be omitted from the picture. The gasoline tax has reached a point where the motor vehicle because of this and other taxes Is now .paying approximately 10 per cent of the total tax burden of the United States, Including federal, state nnd local subdivisions, nnd on an aver- ago more than 40 per cent of the revenues of the states. This burden has already reduced the consumption of gasoline, the purchase of new cais, and the number of cars In use Is now nt lenst 3,000,000 less thnn three years ngo. Gasoline which escapes the tax destroys the competitive price structure determined by economic conditions nnd this in turn reacts on the conservation program In the name manner ns the surreptitious production of crude oil."
