THURSDAY, AUGUST 8, 1963 THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS 7 "FEDERAL CONTROL OF INDUSTRY" Lawmen From Oil States Blast JFK's Committee By LARRY OSIUS Associated Press Staff Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - House members from oil producing states have taken some stifl swipes at a petroleum study com mittee report made at President Kennedy's request. Members from other areas also took aim at the administration's oil policies—from from another quarter. The controversy flared Tuesday as several members took the House floor to discuss the petroleum study report. Rep. Ed Foreman, D-Tex., called the report a "nefarious document." Rep. Bob Dole, R-Kan., said domestic fuels producers "will Ibe exposed to increased harmful competition from cheap foreign oil" if the report is followed. A committee representing sev eral government departments reported July 10 that domestic crude oit prices are "substantially higher than they would be in the absence of import controls." The committee noted, however, that sudden elimination of the present import controls might lead plummeting oil prices and TWO OF A KIND John Sr. & John Jr. PUBLIC AUCTION economic distress in certain areas of the nation. "No immediate sharp change in the level of imports can be justified as prudent," the report said, but added, "at the same time it is Imperative that domestic petro- Jleum casts be reduced to permit a narrowing of the difference between U.S. and foreign prices." Dole said "top officials of this (administration make no secret of the fact they believe controls on imports of oil should be removed, and this foreign oil be permitted to enter the country and compete with our domestic oil and coal for markets." , Rep. Tom Steed, D-Okla., term- ling the report dangerous, said it "reflects more idealism than realism and clearly points to more federal control of the industry." He said the domestic oil industry was being asked to cut its economic throat in the name of meeting competition. But Rep. Silvio Conte, R-Mass., said there isn't enough cheap oil being imported as it is. He blamed it on "a synical political liaison" | between the Kennedy administration and the coal industry. But Conte, in remarks inserted in the Congressional Record, castigated the administration for limiting the importation of cheap fuel In New England and the Atlantic (Coast states. He charged that restrictions on fuel imports were established "so that the present occupant of the White House, who opposed these quotas when he was a member of the Senate, can curry political favor in West Virginia and Pennsylvania," both coal producing states. • JACOBY ON BRIDGE SECOND CHANCE RARELY OFFERED By OSWALD JACOBY Newspaper Enterprise Assn.

West's double of the opening club bid was shaded, but West (had played with East before and knew that East was an un­ derbidden I East did pull himself together and go to four spades after North pre-empted with four clubs. Of course, an aggressive player might have bid five clubs right over four and tried for a slam, but as we have already noted, East was far from aggressive. After South went to five clubs West could find no excuse for anything but a pass. Of course East should have tried a five heart bid. But East had made one bid with his hand and, feeling that he had done his full duty he passed. This put it up to West to lead and West planked down the ace of spades. South ruffed in I dummy, drew trumps, discard- led one heart on the king of spades and claimed his contract. A really good result be- I cause East could make six I spades.
