PAGE TEN ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Ceylon Policies Appear Confusing By HENRY 8. BRADSHER COLOMBO, Ceylon (API - In Ceylon's story of oil, politics and diplomacy if is difficult to distinguish Ideology from incompetence, stubbornness from hastiness. A key point may be a statemen attributed to an official in Wash ington: "Ceylon is a cheap place to stand on a principle." The principle is that of not giv Ing aid to countries that seize American property without com pensation. The United States halt ed aid to Ceylon last February. The situation before and since leaves those closest to the scene with varying evaluations. Marx ists here depict it as a clash of old-fashioned oil company imperi' alism with nationalism. Some oth/ ers suspect poor government tactics on all sides. The oil companies involved are Burmah-Shell, based in Britain and Esso and Caltex, based in the United States. For decades, they provided the needs of mis tropical island off the southern tip of In dia. Undercut Prices The Soviet Union started under cutting the companies' prices for oil from Middle Eastern fields. In 1961 Ceylon's Commerce Minister T. B. Ilangaratna established a government company, Ceylon Petroleum Corp. (CPC), to import cheaper Russian oil products. To put CPC into business the Ceylonese government seized 178 service stations, 88 kerosene out lets and other facilities from the three companies. Washington and London objected on behalf of the companies. Ceylon responded they would get fair compensation and would be al lowed to continue to operate on the "basis of fair competition." CPC quickly took about half the retail business. About this time an American- owned utility company was na tionalized in Brazil. Sen. Bourke Hickenlooper, an Iowa Republican, wrote into the American aid bill a prohibition against helping countries that failed to provide adequate and speedy compensation. The U.S. ambassador, Miss Frances Willis, warned Ceylon's prime minister, Mrs. Sirima Ban- daranaike, of this. But little happened until the deadline on .American aid drew near in February. At stake were $1.3 million in grants and $3 million in loans, big amounts in an underdeveloped country of 10.6 million persons. The halt of aid brought a strong reaction. Miss Willis was burned in effigy. The Communists and two other Marxist parties got together for the first time in decades. Restrictions The Ilangaratna forces then began to devise ways to restrict private oil company operations further in the name of saving scarce foreign exchange. They asked the companies for oil tank facilities because the Soviet Union wanted to send larger shipments. The companies refused. The government played its fina ace. Last month it passed a law giving CPC the exclusive right o retail petroleum sales in Ceylon Naval bunkering and aviation fue are left to the private companies until the government decides to take them over also by a simple order. The British government, which owns part of Burmah-Shell, seem less noticeably disturbed than thi United States. British investments in Ceylon'; tea and rubber total more than a half billion dollars. Tea is the backbone of Ceylon's economy. Bunker Hill Youth Scheduling Speakers BUNKER HILL — James Jay Wood, son of Mr. and Mrs. Alber Wood, left Tuesday afternoon fo Washington, D. C.
