11 (Sgjesburg Register-Moil, Golesburg, 111. Wednesdoy, Oct-. 16, 1963 Oil Companies Are Producing Fertilizers By JACK LEFLER NEW YORK (AP)-Oil companies have been in the business of taking something—petroleum — out of the ground. Now they're going into the business of putting something back "-fertilizer. A rush is on by major oil companies to get into the chemical fertilizer business.

Socony Mobil Oil Co. stockholders will meet Nov. 20 to vote on the proposed acquisition of Virginia-Carolina Chemical Corp. for an $80 million in stock. Cities Service Corp. acquired Tennessee Corp., owner of valuable Florida phosphate lands, last June. The consolidation of Continental Oil Co. and American Agricultural Chemical Co., is pending. The oil companies have come to the conclusion that in an ever more populous world where cultivated land will have to produce more and more food, the role of fertilizers, and other agricultural chemicals, becomes obviously urgent. They are backing with big money their opinion that they are well-suited to fill that role. The waive of oil company acquisitions of independent fertilizer producers has aroused the interest of the government's antitrust officials. They are concerned by such a sudden increase in industrial concentration and are apprehensive that the trend might put the remaining independent fertilizer companies at a sharp disadvantage with the well-financed oil company subsidiaries. Justice department lawyers are taking a look at the pending acquisition proposals with the idea of stepping in if it is thought that they might tend to reduce competition and thus violate the antitrust laws.
