Courage and Cooperation Needed If South Is To Be Industrially Strong By THIIRMAN SENSING Director Of Research Southern States Iiiluslrial Council Everything considered, it may safely be said that the South has low reached the point where its future as a region depends almost entirely upon the courage and cooperation of its people. In other words, it is not material •esources tl-it the South needs; it s .'imply vision and willingness to vork together for the common good. For many years the South lacked naterial resources.

The truth of this •caclily realized when it hat the south's share of the na- ion's wealth dropped from 39 per ent in 1860 to 14 per cent in 1870. Southern labor should work for the South. If it requires courage to invest capital in the comparatively untapped opportunities of the South, it certainly requires no more courage than it did for those Southerners who invested their lives in bringing the region out of poverty and reconstruction. If it requires coooper- ation by all agencies interested in the development of the South—by labor and iranagement and capital and education and government — surely all agencies should be willing to extend this cooperation, for the results achieved will redound to the benefit of all the people of the South and to the progress of the nation. Detailed Report On Cause, Effect Of Increase Given Refiners will be required to absorb the 10 cent a barrel increase in ceiling prices for crude oil, at the producer level, the office of price administration states in a detailed report. Therefore no price changes to the public are contemplated at this time. However, such absorption aiid its effect on prices to the public for petroleum products will be the subject of meetings between OPA and the National Refiners' Industry advisory committee, to begin at once. | EFFECTIVE THIS MONTH Official action granting the ten- rent increase to producers, the first Industry-wide raise granted by OPA to crude oil. producers, will become effective some time during the last half of March. The increase, based on a prospective 1946 production of 1,500,000,000 barrels of crude oil. will mean in additional $150,000,000 to crude oil producers annuallq. The national average selling price for crude oil at present is approximately $1.23 a )arrel.

Cash awards will presemed the three winners in said the increase will be authorised under the agency's canines standard and as such is mandatory under the price control act. Data submitted by OPA's national crude oil industry advisory committee show that higher costs of producers for wages, finding and developing crude oil, deeper drilling and production cut-backs have reduced their earnings to the extent that a large segment of the industry will not be able to maintain 193G-1939 base earnings without a price increase. Information available at this date to OPA justifies an immediate increase of at least ten cents a barrel to keep industry earnings generally from falling below the 19361939 level, the agency said. However, a further cost study will be made at once, and if this study shows the ten cent increase is inadequate to maintain the industry's 1936-1939 earnings, a further increase will have to bo made. INDUSTRY RECOMMENDS 85 CENTS The National Crude Oil Industry Advisory committee recommended an industry-wide increase of 35 cents a barrel. OPA said the committee based this recommendation on so-called 'replacement costs," computing replacement values by relating current capital charges to the discovery of new oil reserves during the same year. OPA said it is contrary to the agency's policv to base price increases on such replacement values. Tho ten cent increase, however, is hi line with the results shown by the industry's own accounting prac- the Shamrock show and the chain-' Hcf '- whicn velates current operating costs to current nroduction.

If the industry can show that the increase is pnll- .ing its earnings below the 1936-1939 level, tho agency must act to correct that condition. Refiners at present are generally producing all ma.ior products except gasoline at capacity. In addition, demand for export is increasing. Per these two reasons, OPA said, smoll high-cost refiners who exneri- enre operating losses because of the full absorption requirement, may be nble to benefit from individual adjustments of their ceiling prices for products sold either directly to industrial users or for export and which do not enter the general competitive field where an individual raising of prices is not practicable. OPA said further that it is considering Whether to continue in effect recent temporary price ceiling [increases allowed in most parts of the country on kerosene and heating oils, which are scheduled to expire ei'lier on April 30 or June 30, 1946. These increases, amounting to half a cent a gallon in the Eastern Seaboard, Gulf Coast and Middle West districts, and 3/4 cent a gallon on the Pacific coast, do not apply to crude oil producers, being only on the refined products of kerosene and heating oils. OPA said that these increases have particularly helped the small high-cost refiners who in certain instances might find it difficult to Tidelands Boost Public Schools AUSTIN, March 11—(fl 1 )—The public school funcw was $802,489 richer today from bonuses paid on mineral leases for 14,000 acres of Tidewater river bed lands.

The first lessee has no prior rights to drill a well, the ruling said. The tract in question involves four lots, subdivided after the discovery of oil into two leases. Only one well can be drilled on the tract—and tbat only under an exceptiony to the railroad comiaiission's rule 37, which provides that no more than one well can be dirlled per 20 acres. If one lessee applies, and.the commission finds that the best location for a well is on his portion, the application for a well may be granted and "is not revicwable unless shown to. be arbitrary," the attorney general held. But if the best location is on the other part of the tract, the commission should take no action until requested. to do so by the owner of that part.
