April 28 l/P.i — Secretary Ickes recommended today that Congress make the Con- .nally "hot oil' act a law for conservation of the tion's oil and gas resources. The act, passed in 1935, will ox- pirp June 15 unless extended. It prohibits shipment in interstate commerce of oil, gas and petroleum products produced in excess of the amount permitted under state laws. • A bill making the act permanent has passed the Senate and is before a House interstate commerce subcommittee for study. Describing "wasteful" production methods that prevailed before the act was passed, Ickes told the subcommittee tho measure had done much to establish orderly production. 'He warned that the United States had been using up its oil reserves faster than the rest of the world. "As a nation," he said, "we should not exhaust these resources and be forced to depend upon the more costly substitute fuels in advance of the rest of the world, or be required to pay the higher price for oil which foreign producers will demand when production fails 10 meet our needs." and thin soils, are highly important in reducing soil erosion and in stimulating the absorption of precipitation, and will be the most vnkmbie factors in reducing filtage in the reservoirs now being constructed and planned along the upper courses of several Texas rivers.

The kings were the first of the season. Skelton said mackeral and kingfish offered about as much sport as the big tarpon. "They're all good fighters," he said. "And the sport depends on the angler. You can have lots ot fun with a mnckeral or king on a light tackle, but there's not much sport in going after them witli a wagon tongue an'd well rope. It takes a handy man with rod and reel to land a 200-pound tarpon with a light, outfit, but it's every clay." WASHINGTON, April 28 UP) -, U1 ^ CU! ,,.

Arguments already have been hea.rd on litigation involving the unemployment insurance provision of .the federal act and on supplementary state legislation to aid the jobless. Since the tribunal did not rule on "the latter litigation during its session yesterday, some observers expressed the opinion that both cases might be decided at the same time. LONDON, April 28 f/P)—Mrs. Wallis Warfielcl Simpson completed today the required six months of "good behavior" in her divorce action and became all but free to marry the former King of England. Only legal, technicalities were necessary before her divorce from Ernest Aldruch Simpson became final and these, It was expected, would be fulfilled within a fortnight. Then the Duke of Windsor who has not seen Mrs. Simp?on since she fled from London at the height of the abdication crisis will be legally privileged to marry "the woman love." Mrs. Simpson's attorneys—she remained in seclusion at Chateau de Cande nSar Monts, France—expected the decree would be made absolute .either May 3 or May 10. (No date for their marriage has been disclosed and it was believed unlikely it would occur 'during the height of the festivities attendant in the coronation of the duke's brother King George VI, on May 12.)
