Mullahe said 'that the actual reorganization plan,rincluding rer assignment of district office personnel, ••;'will not be accomplished until the middle pnrt of 1962. "The .high degree of competition in' the oil industry demands maximum effort towards improv- ed'efficiency and economy of operation," Mullane said. "In announcing these consolidation pl'.ns, it is our intent to continue to maintain a strong competitive position in the oil industry in the geographical territory coordinated by our Oklahoma City area organization." In connection with the announcement of the consolidation plans, Mullane said: "It is with regret that w'e announce the closing of some of our district offices in the OldaHoim City area. Our company h n s been a corporate citizen of these communities for many years and our employees in the cities involved have been active participants in looal civic and community life."

Lilly, districtjgsuperinten- dent. . :'; Lilly said it was anticipated that only 17 or 18 families in Pampa would bs affected by the move. The district manager also stated a field office, would be maintained in Pampa. Workers in the Pampa district office are residents of Pampa, Spearman, Perryton, Follett and Darrouzett, Lilly stated.

Rogers, Oklahoma City area production man*at,~, also called a meeting of Chamber of Commerce officials and newsmen yesterday afternoon and notified them of the decision Chamber of Commerce officials acted immediately to urge Humble officials in Ok'ahoma City to reconsider the decision to move '(he district office, which has been located in Pampa for 35 years. A telegram was sent to Area Manager Mullane who made the announcement today. It was signed by Gordon Lyons, chamber manager, and requested serious reconsideration of the decision to move. District Manager Lilly added this .statement: "We feel that our company and Its local employees have developed many good friends in Pampa over the years and these local friendships snd the warmth with which our company has always been treated here makes moves of this nature doubly difficult. "Many of our field operations employees will continue to live in Pampa and the surrounding area after the local district office has been closed sometime next year," Lilly continued. He added, "Generally speaking, local office psrsonnel will be the ones most directly affected by the consolidation plans."
