(Jalesburg Regisfer-Maii OALESBURQ, ILL., WED., JUNE 27, 1973 SEC. 3 PAGES 23 Oil Market Giants Target of Senator WASHINGTON (UP1) - Sen. Thomas J. Mclntyre, D-N.H., introduced a bill today to force producers and refiners to give up their retail outlets. He warned a handful of giant corporations were trying to dominate the petroleum industry. The Mclntyrc bill would prohibit oil firms from marketing refined oil products, such as gasoline, while also engaging in one or miorc of the other branches of the industry—oil production, refining and transportation. Market Controlled "Not only must they be prohibited from totally controlling the marketing segment of the industry but they must be required to divest themselves of the stations they presently operate," Mclntyre said in remarks prepared for Senate delivery. The measure would punish violators with fines of up to $100,000 for each offense. Mclntyre said it was a "clearly recognizable fact that there is' now under way a definite movement by a number of major oil comjpanies to attain control oyer the' marketing segment of_ the oil industry." Current Shortage Whether the current shortages were caused by lack of supply or not, he said "a number of companies are using the shortage to severely restrict competition at both the wholesale and retail level. "If a handful of giant petroleum corporations are allowed to gain control over the entire petroleum industry— from crude, oil protinietion to refining to transportation to marketing-Men the Implicit abuse of marketing powers is obvious," he added. Mclntyre said he saw "definite signs that a concerted effort to destroy the independent marketing segmcn of the industry is under way."

UNIFAX Brezhnev-Pompidou Talks Ending West German Court Grants Extradition of Girl Refugee BERLIN (UPI) - West Berlin ordered a 17-year-old girl returned to East Germany Tuesday to stand trial in the hammer murder of her father, the first such extradition case since the border was sealed 12 years ago by the Berlin Wall. The decision by a West Berlin prosecutor came only one week after a reconciliation treaty between East and West Germany went into effect, recognizing the existence of two German states. Case Criticized The case provoked criticism in West Berlin for both political reasons and out of sympathy for the girl, student nurse Ingrid Gerda Brueckman, who fled to West Berlin last October to join her mo.ther and her mother's second husband. After she arrived, she confessed that she had killed her father with a hammer at a garbage dump outside Berlin last July. Miss Brueckman said her father, Harry, a 46-year-old night watchman, had beaten her regularly with a bicycle chain and a hose. She also said her father had forced her to have sexual relations with him since she was 10. It was not until she made he* confession that East German authorities knew about tht crime and demanded heJ extradition. The West Berlin prosecutor agreed Tuesday to have her extradlcted only after East German authorities as sured him she would not get more than 10 years' detention and would be allowed to return to West Berlin after she served her time "I refuse on political grounds to be delivered to Eastern justice," she said. Her attorney said he would appeal the ruling. In all other cases after the Berlin Wall was erected.in 1961, refugees accused of crimes in the East have been tried in the West Heinrioh Lummer, a leader of the West Berlin branch of the opposition Christian Democratic party, called the decision Tuesday "unwise, both politi cally and'humanely."

Brezhnev and Panel Okays Kelley For FBI Position WASHINGTON (UPI) -Clarence M. Kelley, the Kansas City, Mo., police chief nicknamed "Dick Tracy" because of his electronic innovations, won the*approval Tuesday of the Senate Judiciary Committee to succeed J. JSdgar Hoover as FBI director. Senate leaders said they [expected Kelley to win confirmation by the full Senate handily. The confirmation of Kelley, 61, an FBI agent himself for 21 years, ends a search of more than a year for a successor to the near legendary Hoover, who died in May, 1972. Kelley, a professional law enforcement officer noted for his efforts to bring modem computer-oriented techniques to the Kansas City Police Department, spent only three days answering senators' questions in Justice Committee hearings The only opposition to his nomination came from Bruce R. Watkins, a Kansas City civil rights leader, who charged Kelley was an "unyielding >law and order man" who had instituted a spy system to harass members of organizations whose political ideals differed from those of the chief and his police department. Kelley, however, promised the senators that any intelligence gathering he undertook as FBI director would not violate the constitutional rights of individuals. READ THE WANT ADS! French sources said there is no chance France will drop its opposition to. a withdrawal of U.S. and Soviet forces from Central Europe. "There is no reason to expect Pompidou to approve the decision of President Nixon and Brezhnev last week to open negotiations Oct. 30 on the mutual withdrawal of forces from Europe," a high French official said. . Troop Pull-Out The Oct. 30 force reduction talks, scheduled to open in Vienna, will be between North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and Warsaw Pact countries. French officials said France fears a troop pull-out would create a dangerous vacuum in Europe. French officials said Pompidou would also tell Brezhnev at today's talks that France was determined to continue building up its nuclear arsenal despite the U.S.-Soviet agreement reached in Washington to rule out nuclear conflicts. Third Meeting Pompidou and Brezhnev met today for the third time in three days at the staterowned castle of Ramfoouillet south of Paris. An Elysee Palace spokesman said that in Tuesday's talks, Brezhnev assured Pompidou his summit talks with Nixon in Washington last week produced no U.S.-Soviet decision involving any other country. "It was neither the intention nor the consequence of his summit" with Nixon to take decisions on behalf of other countries," Elysee Palace spokesman Xavier Marchetti said Brezhnev told Pompidou after the two leaders met for more than three hours at the 14th-century' royal castle of Rambouillet. Pompidou went on national television Tuesday night to proclaim his talks with Brezh nev "positive and constructive."
