TULSA, Okla., Jan. 26 (XP)—Not even the senate's apprbval of the new donnally rimendnieht to the National Industrie Recovery act could erase the frown from the face of the petroleum Industry today. Passed without a record vote, the measure cannttt become law until 90 days after hduse approval and the president's signature are obtained. Meanwhile, the flow of "hot" oil in East Texas is reported from several sources as showing a gradual increase. From 24 to 26 refineries were reported running early this week. The gasoline market' continued severely depressed and there was complete absence of enthusiasm by dealers and jobbers. Usually cold weather was partly to blame for the lack of gasoline buying. The adverse couft ruling in Texas late this week, which unless reversed in higher cburts, will permit oil estimated front I,500,0d0 barrels upward to move into commerce. The state, refused A stay df execution by the district court, Heyerthelbss was granted a 5-day delay in order tb perfect an appeal. One firm was granted perihlsslbh to move (10,000 barrels of, gasoline allegedly processed before the Texas Railroad Commission IssUed its order of December to outlawing products not bearing approved state tenders. As a result the market showed a decided softness. The firm Offered this gasoline at 3 1-4 cents but found no Immediate takers because only a portion Is clean. The current fear was that lack- Ing takers at the price offered the gasoline might be dumped at best price obtainable, thus depressing a market already weak. A buying program of several large firms, designed to take off the spot market a quantity bf distress gasoline in North Central Texas, In Oklahoma and in Kansas, was abruptly termintaed when it became known a single 10,000-barrel lot Was available In East Texas. More interest was shown in the question of how Texas' new oil control bill will be drafted than In the congressional action which came yesterday. There was a current of uncertainty whether the Texans would permit a "market demand" clause to remain in the forthcoming legislation. Texas' present oil law automatically terminates in September unless renewed. If a simple "physical waste" measure passes operators in the remainder of the industry fear there will be a real flood of oil from Texas. .»Use Daily NEWS Classified Ads. DR. G. C.

Prey, president of the metal tradcfe department of the American FeaeVation of Labor, meanwhile, reiterated a statement that he had made yesterday before the senate munitions committee that he had shown Johnson a sealed envelope which he said was turned over to him by Lawrence Wilder, former heati Of the New York ship-building company. Frey said the letter contained names of the low bidders for the naval program. "I don't like to find myself in di- r*ct "o^Bsrttoft with rVtrrt," Frey said- of Johnson's testimony tbtiay, "but if his memory falls him mine Is vfery clear and .-Jefinite about the matter."
