i Udall order on fuel oil under review By BEN COLE Republic Washington Bureau WASHINGTON - The Nixon's administration is reviewing an llth hour order of former Interior Secretary Stewart L. Udall which could give friends of Sen. Vance Hartke, D-Ind., advantages in the oil industry. The Jan. 8 order, announced Jan. 23, raises by 241 f OOO barrels a day the total allocation of unprocessed fuel oil-that may be imported into the. United States from Western Hemisphere sources. Residual fuel is what Is left after gasoline refining; it is used to heat big buildings, and imports are cheaper than ddmestic residual fuel oil. Hence, allotments of imports afe a continuing problem. GUARDIAN OIL Refinery Co. of Kokomo, Ind., headed by Claude 0. Turner, a onetime Democratic candidate for mayor of Evansville, is one. of three American firms approved to participate in the new allotments, . *" Turner has a $196,000 judgment against him in the federal court at Indianapolis in connection with a Small Business Administration loan. Hartke's office said Turner has been an occasional visitor and he has contributed to the Hartke campaigns. An aide described Turner as "A Democrat, a friend, and a friend of Democrats." (The senator is attending an interparlia- mentary conference in Mexico.) Elmer Hoehn, one-time 8th District Democratic chairman in Indiana, was the federal oil administrator when the residual fuel oil order was signed by Udall. He defended it -in a statement to reporter Dan Thomasson of Scripps- Howard Press Service, saying an Incentive was needed to get importers of "dirty" resi- duol fuel oil moving toward reprocessing. FORMER Secretary Udall told The Arizona Republic yesterday that everything about the order was above board. He said hearings were held and publh notices were published about it. The purpose, Udall said, was to spur the use of desul- phurized residual fuel oil in heating buildings, thus abating air pollution. "Anybody who is willing to agree to build a plant and de- sulphurize the residual fuel oil can get an allotment," Udall said. Udall is skeptical about the ability of companies to produce the desulphurized fuel since they must invest $800 million to $100 million apiece to get into the business. REVIEW OF the Udall order is resulting from questions raised by Sen. Clifford P. Hansen, R-Wyo., who termed the procedure "most unusual." Reports here indicate Guardian Oil — the Turner firm — contemplates a $60 million facility in New York, Philadelphia, or Providence, R.I.

President Nixon's daughter, Julie, and son-in-law David Eisenhower, joined other members of the first family yesterday for the Easter holiday weekend. The young Eisenhowers flew aboard military aircraft from Washington, arriving at the Nixon villa about noon. Earlier in the day they had returned to the capital aboard the funeral train bringing David's grandmother, Mrs. Dwight D. Eisenhower, and other members of his family from Abilene, Kan., where the 34th president was buried Wednesday. Julie, 20, and David, 21, were welcomed with a warm hug by Mrs. Nixon and Jul- ie's sister, Tricia, when they reached the vacation home facing Biscayne Bay. The family then had lunch together and strolled on the beach. Waiting at the nearby Biscayne Yacht Club was the slick White House cabin cruiser, Julie, in case a boating party was organized. Julie still has not cruised aboard the sparkling white yacht that has been named for her. Workmen were busy building a 10-foot addition to Nixon's $127,000 beachfront home which was purchased from former Sen. George Smathers of Florida. The president's small bedroom is being expanded to make way for a large desk and television set. The house also is being redecorated. The first family planned to worship together tomorrow at one of the little churches on the lush tropical key near Miami. Mrs. Nixon has two Easter outfits to choose from and she is expected to wear a lightweight, powder blue silk linen dress, and jacket because of the warm sunny Florida weather. The Nixons are expected to travel back to Washington tomorrow evening.
