Ft Slocum Flies WWte Flag To Economy Drive NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. (AP) — Ft. Slocum, which has housed hundreds of thousands of American soldiers since the Civil War, has heard Its last retreat. The 80-acre Davids Island, on which tha fort stands in New York Bay was closed in a Pentagon economy drive. Huge Oil Lying in HOUSTON, Tex. (AP)-World crude oil production from offshore installations now exceeds four million barrels a day. This is equivalent to about 16 per cent of total world production outside Communist bloc nations, "The future undoubtedly will see this percentage substantially increased," Dr. Charles F. Reserves Are Offshore Fields Jones, president of the Humble Oil & Refining Co., said this week. He said about one-sixth of the world's proven oil reserves lie offshore. Jones made his status report on offshore oil production trends at a New York City industrial seminar.

Deay, he said, could mean possible loss of such resources to faster moving foreign countries and to foreign industry. The recently ratified treaty of the International Convention on the Continental vShelf grants the Oil Limit for Louisiana Is Boosted Chaplains Serve Needs of Actors right lo develop resources beyond the self 'to those nations who first develop the technology to exploit them. "We may be facing an international underwater treasure hunt with the winner's share going to the country with the oest sea science," said Jones, holder of a doctor of philosophy degree in chemistry. "Considering the social and economic potential of the ocean, this country's industry cannot afford to remain becalmed by indifference." Humble, the domestic operator for the Standard Oil Co- completed its first offshore oil discovery in 1948 off the Louisiana coast. Since then, Humble has pushed its explorations to a record water depth of 632 feet. Jones said explorations at this and greater depths will require development of new concepts that will challenge the imagination and creativity of businessmen. "We are already drilling in deeper water than human beings can really effectively operate," he said. "The recent Sealab experiment will help tell us some of the things we must know, but there is much more to be learned." Jones said ocean explorations offer many potential benefits addition to possible discovery of oil and gas. Mumble's offshore explorations for oil led to the 1958 discovery of major sulphur deposit? under 45 feet of water six miles from the Louisiana coast. The sulphur was found in the cap- rock of a salt dome 1,700 feet below the floor of the Gulf of Mexico. Much oil has been produced from such geological formations along the Louisiana and Texas coast, both onshore and offshore. BATON ROUGE (AP)- The Louisiana daily oil production .allowable will be boosted about 50,000 barrels for January-February under a change announced Friday by the State Department of Conservation. Officials said the allowable for .he two-month period will be based on a depth-bracket level of 35 per cent of the level of Vlarch, 1953, up from the present level of 34 per cent. The announcement came after hearing in New Orleans, at which nominations for crude oil purchases in the January-February period totaled a record 1,605,381 barrels a day. The department will officially set the allowable at a staff meeting for Dec. 23. Egypt Announces Price Increases CAIRO (AP) - Egypt has announced price rises in consumer products ranging from five cents for cigarettes to a 25 per cent boost in prices of appliances and automobiles. Government officials said the rise was caused by heavy increases. LONDON (AP)-Drums roll, 1 the orchestra launches into "God Save the Queen," and another performance of "Passion Flower Hotel," a musical at the Prince of Wales Theater, is beginning. The white-haired man in clerical collar and black suit, who has been talking at stage center with a bevy of chorus girls, retired to the wings. For the next two hours the stage is given over to the sexy high jinks which occur when the boys of an exclusive school get together with the girls from a nearby school. It's really no place for a clergyman to be. Not that the Rev. Christopher P. Bryan would be shocked at anything. He is one of a hundred or so Anglican priests who work as chaplains in the theaters, movie and television studios of Britain. Twice a week Father Bryan leaves his parish of St. Thomas in the drab Finsbury Park district of north London to visit his other parishioners amid (he bright lights of West End theaterland. His particular re- sponsibilitie<? are the Prince of Wales and the Garrick Theater. He has been an Actors' Church Union chaplain for a dozen years, first at the Finsbury Park Empire, an old - time music hall, now pulled down. The Actors' Church Union wag founded in 1899 to serve the theatrical profession of all denominations or none. For $1.40 a year, which is reduced in case of long unemployment or sickness, members can use the actors' club in the crypt of St. Martin-in-thc-Fields, Trafalgar Square; get a list of theat SUNDAY, D!C. 5, 1965,1 g famed players are interred within its walls. But the Bishop of London has assigned the Church of St. Vedast-Alias-Fostcr us chapel tor the union. Its headquarters adjoining are linked by a cloister with the church. There, on St. Martin's Day each year, members of the profession worship at a special service. The Rev. John Mortimer, SO, a New Zealander who had the rical lodgings approved by both j job of promoting religious chaplains and members of the profession, and a list of chaplains and their churches. St. Martin is the patron saint of actors, though he once said no actor should be baptized until he gave up acting. St. Paul's, in Convent Garden, is sometimes called the actors' church because David Garrick worshipped there and the ashes of Ellen Terry and other drama at Southward Cathedral and now is chaplain at one of England's lop ballet schools, today heads the union and coordinates the work of its chaplains. The union is represented almost everywhere in the world where British showgirls go. It has chaplains to look after girls in Paris and Dublin and the cooperation of an Episcopalian priest even in Las Vegas, Nev.
