TROs' Issue Final Say On Housing Vote NEW CROSBY STATE BANK Natural Gas Producers Protest Order To Account For Revenue WASHINGTON, March 24 — UP —The Federal Power Commission is being bombarded with protests agfainst its plan to require independent natural gas producers to account for all their 1955 revenues. The producers recognize the commission's legal right to reports on revenues based on interstate gas sales. Most of these already are on file here. But they question its jurisdiction over within state sales ami "other revenues." The commission, with Commissioner Seaborn L. Digby vigorously dissenting, says the data is Necessary to "proper administration of of the Natural Gas Act." It gave the producers until next Thursday, March 29, to submit their views in writing. These will be analyzed, ed. On May 1 it will decide whether to make the ruling permanent or forget it. Russell. B. Brown, general counsel of the independent Petroleum.

Mrs. Spencer said the six-week course instructed students in dealing with communicable diseases, improvised equipment, isolation of communicable diseases, diets for ill persons and others, during the one-hour daily sessions. The Red Cross sponsored project is designed to familiarize graduates with problems commonly arising in the home, how to cope with the situations, and to aid in civil defense measures. Mrs. Spencer also said the Red Cross would organize an adult class if enough women in Crosby indicated interest. protest tone. Speaking for 10,000 oil and gas .producers, he said the plan "constitutes a warning as to what -producers will face under federal price controls." . He strongly urged IPAA members to submit their "views, objections and comments." An IPAA spokesman said the accent should be on "objection." . Digby said the proposal would "impose an unnecessary hardship upon the producers." Brown agreed. He said it would be expensive and would duplicate information already on file. •* "The basic question," another IPAA spokesman told the United Press, "is whether the regulation is needed or justified. It is a step toward regulatory procedure of some things not under FPC jurisdiction, such as within state sales and kindred transactions." The commission issued its notice only a, few weeks after President Eisenhower vetoed the Harris-Ful•bright Bill which would have exempted independent producers from federal regulation. A spokesman said that with the bill dead, as of now, the commission feels it must ..comply with full terms of the gas act. The commission pointed out that since the Supreme Court's federal price control ruling on June 7, 1954. it has been exempting the producers from some of the accounting and reporting requirements of the gas act "However." it said, "it has now found it essential to its proper administration of the act that each independent producer furnish a report of sales for 1955." The proposed reports are due by May 1. They must consist of "detailed statements of sales under rate schedules filed with the FPC, and the total of sales made in accordance with any other arrangement," The last requirement is what raised producer ire. The producers must name the purchasers of their gas, the field which produced it. and rates being charged as of last Dec. 31. Pipelines are not affected. They already mnko such reports. Greater Baytown Improvement association issued its final statement Friday favoring the construction of additional units at the federal housing projects in Baytown. "1. REGARDING- TAXES: Public low rent housing will not .and has pever caused one cent of increase in local taxes. It will cause no increase in taxes in Baytown. Payments in lieu of taxes will be reached in the same manner as in the case of public schools, parks and the like. The additional units for minority groups will do much to eolve the problem. This is the sensible approach in race relations as opposed to the Klaji-like method of hate proportion which the opposition to decent low-rent housing has stooped to in desperation. "3. REGARDING METHODS OF PROVIDING HOUSING: Our local housing commissioners, O. C. Behymer. Roger Read, B.-J. Davison, C. L. Thorp and C. H. Olive propose to build up to 150 clean accent units which will rent for an average of 122.75 per month to families with an average income of $1342 per year. The opposition would have you believe that the housing needs o£ our hundreds of elderly pensioners, numerous widows with small children to support and many low-paid unskilled workers with large families will be met by building some $6000 to $7000 homes—home* which these people could not possibly or rent Who are they kidding? "*. REGARDING COSTS: Cost figures published by the opposition are entirely false. They were derived 1 from the National Home Builders Association (The National Real Estate lobby) which seeka in every way and by any means possible to defeat low rent public housing in any community, and has furnished the blue . print for the local campaign. The truth is that the entire, public housing, program requires only about 6 cents per year from the income tax paid by a S4 per year wage earner, and we will pay that tax anyway whether the units are built here or in some other city. "5. REGARDED .ETHICS: We deeply resent the campaign tactics of the so-called homeowners association whose officers and directors, if any .have been kept secret from the public. We resent the attack on the ministerial alliance as being a group of misguided individauls. ' "We . challenge the so-called home owners association and the real estate board to name one eingfle minister who is misguided or who is not a patriotic 'citizen and who is not wholeheartedly in favor of public housing.' "We resent the attack by implication on our own local housing commissioners, O. C. Behymer, Roger Read, B. J. Davison, C. L. Thorp and C. H. Olive, >py pointing to wrongdoing in other cities. We challenge the Real Estate board to produce one bit of factual information that would reflect on the character, patriotism or personal integrity of any of these fine local men. "We resent the deliberate effort to kincfle the fires of hate and prejudice in our peaceful community by setting class against class and casting unkind reflections against the poor but honest people who live in our present low rent housing project.
