lQ^..C5a(6sbuf9. Reaister-Mail,,(folesburg, HI. Tuesday, June 1 2, 1 j7g Crude Oil Prices Up in Four By JAMES R. KING United Press International The price of crude oil was raised in four states Monday, and the State of Florida accused big petroleum firms of creating the fuel shortage just to drive prices up. Elsewhere, Kansas fanners were in doubt whether they had enough gasoline to complete their wheat harvest, power companies in the Northeast reduced output by 8 per cent in the midst of a record heat wave, one senator said laying the Alaskan oil pipeline would ease the problem, and the Libyan government took over a U.S. oil company and called it a punitive action. Shell Oil Co. meanwhile posted a price increase of 35 cents per barrel for crude oil in Texas, Louisiana, Montana and North Dakota, citing a need to retain its existing level of fuel supplies. In Fort Worth, Tex., Gham- plin Petroleum Co. announced it is increasing its posted price for Oklahoma sweet crude oil by 45 cents per barrel, to $4.30, effective immediately. Two Questions Raised Two big questions were raised by government officials. One: Did the oil companies create the fuel crisis or iristead is the public at fault for not heeding the oil industry's warnings that-the (shortage was coming? Second: Should the country sacrifice standards for a clean environment to ease the shortage? Florida Assistant Attorney General Daniel S, Dearing said the power crisis is a plot by big oil firms to discredit environ mentalists and eliminate com petition. He promised the state would sue the oil companies on those grounds, alleging viola tion of federal antitrust laws. 'No Crisis' "They hope to overcome the abjections of the environmentalists to exploration in the Gulf by exciting everybody with this crisis atmosphere that they promote," Dearing said. "We don't believe there is an energy crisis at all. There may be a shortage brought on by the rising demand for fuel, but we don't think there's anything near a crisis, and we don't j think people ought to put much stock in a crisis." Scoffs at Charge But in Tulsa, Okla., W. Timothy Dowd, executive secre tary of the Interstate Oil Compact Commission, a Texas government agency, scoffed at arguments the crisis was contrived by the oil industry. "When they find out they can't drive their cars to work or that trucks can't deliver food to cities, then the public is going to say that argument is nonsense," Dowd ,said. He recommended easing environ- 'mental restrictions and using lower grade crude. Pipeline Relief Sen. Sam Nunn, D-Ga,, advocated building the controversial Alaskan pipeline to help relieve the problem, a move opposed by environmentalists because of the ecological problems the pipe could create in the Alaskan wilderness. | "The problem facing, us is that we're only 6 per cent of the world's population but we're using 333 per cent of the world's energy" Nunn said. He added that even if the pipeline were built "it will only be a dent in the problem—not a solution." Takeover More Serious The takeover in Libya of a Texas-based oil company was more serious in its implications to the future of U.S. petroleum firms in the Mideast, than it was to the immediate fuel shortage. Libyan leader Col. Moammar Khadafy, in announcing- the "nationalization" of Bunker Hunt Oil Co., issued a strong anti-U.S. statement. "The United State's is being defeated all over the world, but has not been taught the final lesson," he said. "Wo tell America in a loud voice that it needs a severe blow in the face from the Arabs." In Doubt In Kansas, state officials were in doubt whether there would be enough fuel to handle the wheat crop, expected to yield a record 373 million bushels this year. "Wc just may squeak through the wheat harvest," said Randall Baxter, a spokesman for the state Economic Development Commission. "I say 'may.'" Baxter said Monday the commission has received 140 calls since its fuel "hot line" was connected May 21, and about 25 per cent of them were from farmers needing fuel. There is also a shortage of freight cars. Getting Aivay From It A makeshift bus is packed with evacuees from a village near Phnom Penh, Cambodiia.

BEATH, O.D. DAILY 8:00 - 5:00 • MONDAY & FRIDAY 8:00-8:00 60 S. Kellogg Galesburg, III. WASHINGTON (UPI) .- A federal court has ruled that the man President Nixon picked to dismantle the Office of Economic Opportunity is serving illegally. U.S. District Court Judge William B. Jones handed down his decision Monday, ordering acting OEO Director Howard J. Phillips to take no further action as head of the antipoverty agency. . Consumer advocate Ralph Nader said the decision "reas- curbing -the lawlessness of the executive branch." An OEO spokesman said there would be no agency comment until the judge's ruling is checked by the OEO's general counsel. The administration had planned to abolish OEO on July 1. The ruling on Phillips' status followed an earlier court decision that the administration had no authority to eliminate the OEO without congressional action. Four U.S;' senators filed the serted the role of the courts in'case on which Jones ruled Monday. They were Democrats Harrison A. Williams Jr., N.J., Claiborne Pell, R.I., Walter F. Mondale, Minn., and William D. Hathaway, Maine. Phillips, an outspotcen foe of OEO programs, was appointed acting director of the agency by Nixon last Jan. 31. The senators argued the Vacancies Act of 1868 gave the President 30 days to submit a nomination to the Senate to fill offices 1 which became vacant, and they claimed that Phillips had been serving illegally since March 3. Not Subject The administration had argued that OEO was not subject to the act. Jones ruled that Congress had not permitted the position of OEO director to be "filled in any manner other than the] nomination and confirmation .process" provided in the Constitution. The judge said that presidential power to appoint a director to hold office temporarily exists only "in emergency situations." Phillips' name never has been submitted to the Senate since he took over the agency from Philip Sanchez, itihe last regular director.
