It would stop oil shipments to some countries entirely, and hold other countries to one-lAvelth of their supply during the 1934-36 base period. Canada would not be affected since the dominion already has cur- tf.lled its petroleum imports voluntarily! Hesclton's bill would provide a maximum penalty o[ a $10.000 fiiu and two years in jnll 'or any who mates shtixncnts in violation <•< the embargo. "The penalty may be" drastic.' said Heselton,'"but the situation is serious and must be met! The IIGRU.IV safety and welfare qf the American people «re threatened."
