LLOYD PLACES BLAME FOR W OF OIL (United Prem Leaief Wire) LOS ANGELES, Feb. 16.—Several Los Angeles basin operators are undermining the program of curtailing oil production throughout the state by refusing to join in the movement, Ralph B. Lloyd president of the Oil Producers Sales Agency charged today. "Voluntary curtailment faces Its gravest crisis," the chairman of the statewide movement declared. "Even a collapse of the present price structure grows constantly closer. "Agreement after agreement has been made among the majority of Independent oil producers, only to find men In their own ranks selfishly refusing to participate. .We have had demonstrated to us that one relatively small producer can -disrupt the entire program. "Allowing wells to overproduce, even on a small piece of property, compels his neighbors to overproduce, and they in turn compel adjoining properties *o seek their share of production. Eventually the field's overproduction disrupts the state movement." Oil Field Actmtjes <tf Both Kern and State in Big Spurt During t^eek Mohawk to Drill Weed Patch Well About 6000 Feet Mohawk.
