Disposal of Big Inch to Proceed Washington, Oct. 17 — (fP)— Despite a bitter inter-agency policy conflict, the War Assets Administration will go .ahead \vith its own plan for disposing of the $145,800,000 "Big Inch" and "Little Inch" pipelines from Texas to th ccast coast. A ranking official who discoscd this privately today also told a reporter that WAA's original plnn to have a "special advisory council" representing interested government agencies pass on the sale had collapsed. Now bids for the giant petroleum lines simply will be revie.vcd by WAA's own recently organized real property disposal board. And the award will be made subject only to Justice Department anti-trust clearance. The basic behind the scenes controversy is whether Ihe lines are to be. restored to service as petroleum carriers or converted to use as natural gas lines. Many oil men believe that the 'lines should be used only for natural gas.

The cimmittee learned when it assembled, however, the official said that it was expected to function within the policy already established by WAA's predecessor, :he Surplus Property Administra- lion. That policy, laid down in a report to Congress in January called for sale to a private bidder for use as oil lines, if that was possible. The Interior Department, reportedly favoring use of the lines for natural gas, withdrew from the advisory group, refusing to be bound by the policy limits which WAA iiad sol, the official said. Laler the Interstate Commerce Commission, Federal Power Commission and the representatives of the Army and N&vy withdrew in order to be similarly free from any advance policy commitmenls. WAA reporledly has taken the position that it has Ihe tacit consent of Congress i'or its policy, which it reported to the lawmakers as follows: "Disposal for conversion to natural gas will be favored only if it proves impossible to keep the lines in petroleum service.' ' Under the law, the agency is required to report on its plans ior selling major facililics, and unless Congress acts to the contrary, it is empowered to go ahead accordingly. In this case Congress took no veto aclion. The Big Inch, a 24-inch line extending from Longview, Tex., to Ihc New York-Philadelphia refill cry area, cost Ihe government $78,500,000. The Little Big Inch, a 20 inch tube from the Texas gulf coasl rcinfery area to New York, cost $67,300,000.

But then he grew serious. A few years ago Ihe greal problem of ihe cotton farmer was a domestic and world surplus running inlo. millions of bales. The American carry-over usually amounted lo a full year's crop, and once amounted to about, two full years' pro- ,-^duction I believe, although I am writing strictly from memory A young mother and )icr daugh lor lost their lives and another couple .and their young son narrowly escaped when a boat capsized at the Lakeside Country Club, 20 miles from Little Rock late yesterday. Drowned were Mrs. Helen Louise Rcnfroc, 26, wife of Paul. F. Ren- froc of Benton, and their Sour-year- old daughter, Pat Joyce. Mr. and ., , . Mrs. Edward Cohen and son of I asked the federal man what the Little Rock were rcscucd.x The carryover is today. There isn't any. He replied: None but the ablest of the cotton experts knows what the price of cotton should be tcday; but certainly it is reassuring in the face of the $25 loss in futures to recall that this year's cotton doesn't have to contend with millions of bales carried over frnm last year; that the- whole world is terribly short *^rtf' manufactured cotton goods; and -•that .the demand for such goods ' should continue strong for a few ycars..at least. ••Today's break may be. as the politicians charge, merely a boar rifltl by the futures gamblers. Or, to reckon with all the facts in the case, it may be a technical adjustment of prices to the realities of our postwar world. I wouldn't know about that. But in New York they arc explaining a similar price recession . — the crash in Stock Market quo,5 Cations — this way: General Motors titock had been bid up with the expectation that po.stwar dividends would be increased due to wartime accumulation of surplus and an oxpectod high rate of production of cars. But after a year of peace the Stock Market suddenly woke up to the trouble fact that and other with labor production delays the surplus was diminished and new earnings were conspicuously absent. The market quotations on General Motors were ^therefore revised—and olher stoclcs : -ijollowxl^thenY downward.- — ~ > »' This is no mark of collapse and panic, however.
