Barnick said Saturday he had no thought of growing the first bale when he planted Jan. 24 and that he would much, rather have seen, more rain ''and a field of big green stalks" than the dry weather that caused his cotton to mature early. Barnick, who moved to the Rio Grande valley six years ago from St. Elmol El., owns but 56 acres of land but,farms 269 all told. At present prices, his 498-pound bale of Acala^442 strain cotton would be worth about $200. -WASHINGTON, June 7 (IP- Knocked back on their heels by the Senate, the nation's 13,000 independent oil producers looked none too hopefully to price chief Ellis Arnail Saturday to give them a "break" on price decontrol. .The producers suffered a major defeat Thursday when the Senate, voting 6n extension of the Defens . Production Controls Act, overrode ail attempts to write in decontrol exemptions for petroleum and other products in ample supply. The vote coincided with a new decontrol lea the independents filed with Arnall. While the price boss was described this time as "more receptive" of their arguments, his only promise was that he would give the problem "serious consideration." To date Arnail has refused to budge from his belief that decontrol of crude -petroleum would breach the anti-inflation gates and saddle the price-burdened public, with another big cost-of-living bill. He gave not the slightest hint that the new appeal would alter his stand. But this time he asked pertinent questions such as who fixes crude'field prices? Would the refiners demand price hikes if pro- and what anti-rpice rise guarantees would there be for the consumer? Arguing the producers' case were Charlton H. Lyons, president of the Independent. jPetroleum Association of America flPAA); J. V. Brown. Chairman of the IPAA cost committee; Minor S. Jameson Jr., assistant to Lyons; Russell B. Brown, IPAA general counsel; George K. Bruce of Wichita, chairman of the Price Advisory committee; Joe Zeppa, .president of the Delta Drilling Co.. Tyler, Tex.; W. O. White, president of the Ken- iiworth Oil Corp., Shreveport. and John M. Kelley, president of the Elk Oil Co., Roswell, N. M. Russell Brown, who has been waging the, independents decontrol fight before committees of Congress, told Arnali that producers have no control over field prices which are fixed- by the purchasers. But he stressed that competition is so keen a price jump of any * consequence is doubtful. He made the point that the independents were not asked for a * price increase but rather that con- « trols were hampering drilling ar.d ; exploitation necessary to carrying our the huge production expansion program approved by the government.
