R. WANTS TO REVISE OIL PACT Asks Senate Return Anglo-U. S. Treaty Washington, (/P) _ President Roosevelt asked the senate Wednesday to -send back to him an Anglo-American petroleum treaty so that revisions may be made to remove misunderstandings Mr. Roosevelt sent the oil agreement to the senate last August 24, requesting its ratification. But it ran into difficulties, not only in the senate but also in the domestic oil industry. . In the messaw asking Its return, Mr. Roosevelt said he had not changed his view that'"the agreement constituted an important step forward in removing possible causes of friction in international .rade in petroleum and promoting co-operation among the nations in the development of that trade." He said he was informed, however, of fears expressed as to its scope and effect as now worded, fe said there was some concern est it authorize acts by the petroleum industry inconsistent with existing law, as well as fears that t might "hold potentialities harmful to the industry." The president regards these fears as unfounded, he said and certainly no such possibilities were intended. Since there Is general agree- nent that an understanding on in- ernational petroleum trade be- ween this country and Britain is lesirable, Mr. Roosevelt went on, t would be unfortunate should it GLOBE-GAZETTE WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 10, 1945 e delayed or even prevented hrongh a misunderstanding 1 as to he purpose and scope of a. particular document. "The secretary ol state, accordingly, the president said, "has ecommended that I request the enate to return the agreement a order that consideration may be "iven, in consultation with the overnment o£ the united kingdom o whatever revision appears to be lecessary to achieve its objective nd to remove grounds for mis- tnderstanding. I, therefore, re- uest that the agreement be re- urned. for this purpose." P-47s THEIR JOB Evansville, ma., U.R)--The 4 members of the Compton -family re all connected with keeping '-47s going. Sgt.
