(AP Wirrplioto) 5 Oil Companies Said to 'Unduly Cost Taxpayers MSA Accuses Firms Of World 'Price Discrimination' WASHINGTON r^V-The Mutual Security Agency (MSA), in a new report to Investigating senators has accused live U. S. oil companies of heaping "an undue burden on (he American taxpayer" for their own profit. It named the five ns Standard Oil of New Jersey, Standard Oil of California, Gulf OIT Company Scony-Vacuum Oil Company and the Texas Company. The report, requested by the Senate Small Business Committee's monopoly subcommittee and made public last night, accused the five of "price discrimination ™ a world-wide scale."

Justice i Department, at MSA's request, already has filed suit to recover 50 million dollars from the five companies on grounds of overcharges on bills paid with foreign aid funds. Dr. Waller Adams, economic counsel to. the Senate committee told a reporter MSA, which administers foreign aid, contends the total overcharges would be more than 50 million, but that he does not know how much more The companies, the report said charged the Europeans "exorbitant prices" for oil, far higher .ban they charged for deliveries to the United states from the same Middle Eastern fields. Taxpaj-er "Unduly Burden "Because of this two-price EVS- tem and the abnormally high price charged in European markets an undue burden was placed on the American taxpayer, who was foot- ns the bill for Marshall Plan aid " the committee said In a prepared statement quoting the report.

Lewis has been negotiating off and on since July 24 with Harry M. Moses, president of the Bituminous Coal Operators Associntlon. and Joseph E. Moody, president of the Southern Coal Producers Association. His negotiations with Moody did not start until the beginning of this month. Sixty days notice Is required before the expiring contracts between the UMW and the industry can be ended. 60-Day Notice G5ven Lewis gave his 00-day notice to Moses, who bargains for 240 million tons of coal a year, on July 22. That means he could legally take his northern soft coal diggers out of the pits about Sept. 22. His contract expiration notices to Moody and the anthracite industry were given on Aug. 1. Thus Lewis' hard - coal miners and southern diggers could not legally strike for a new work contract until the end of next month.
